Football God X Rules

Ten years in the making baby.  Let's jump in right away with the different categories that go into winning FoGo-X.

Fantasy Football
College Weekly Pick'em
Pro Weekly Pick'em
Preseason Predictions
Survivor Pool
Bowl Pick'em

Let's start with the changes


Payment (Big change so pay attention)

Instead of doing check mailing this year, we're going to do online transfers through the VENMO app.  $50 per person, per usual.  This should help get the money to me quicker.

NOTE:  I'm not accepting money in person anymore.  It's a variable that I've always hated about football god.

Fantasy Football

15 points will be awarded per fantasy football win & 5 points will be awarded to the team that scores the most points, but loses.  This is being done to make Fantasy a bigger impact on the end of the season standings.

Survivor Pool

We're going to make a couple of changes to get more people in on the scoring.  This season if people make it past Week 4 they will receive 5 points.  If they make it past Week 8 they will receive 5 points.  If they make it past Week 12 they will receive 5 points.

Additionally, we will open scoring up a little bit more

1st 60 pts
2nd 40 pts
3rd 20 pts
4th 10 pts

This will provide the people who don't finish at the top to mitigate the damage a little bit.

2017 Rules:

Survivor Pool, College Pick'em, Pro Pick'em, Fantasy Football

1st place - 60 bonus points
2nd place - 40 bonus points
3rd place- 20 bonus points.
4th place - 10 bonus points.

If there is a tie, the points get split evenly, when they can't be split evenly they are rounded up to the nearest number.

Fantasy Football

Fantasy Football will work the same as always


Win worth 15 points, highest scoring loser gets 5 each week.

Bowl Pick'em

The bowl pick'em is not against the spread.  You receive 2 points for each correct bowl prediction.  5 points for the New year's 6 bowls.  And 10 points for the Championship game.

However,  new to this year.  The person with the most overall correct predictions will win the 25 point bonus.  Make sure that you do the tiebreaker this year, as a tie in the overall standings will result in Yahoo! Tie breaker coming into play.

The bonus in the Bowl Pick'em will be 

1st 30 points
2nd 20 points
3rd 10 points

Pro & College Pick'em

You receive one point for each game you predict correctly.  College is done with the ranked teams against the spread, pros is straight up.  There is a weekly bonus given to the team with the highest total points between both pros and college of 10 points.  If there is a tie, everyone receives the full bonus.  The weeks where only one of the two leagues is playing results in a 5 point bonus.  

At the end of the season if two people are tied in one of the pick'ems.  They will divide the points equally (i.e tied for 1st and 2nd would result in each person getting a 50 point bonus instead of 60 and 40)  


The predictions template will be sent out sometime at the beginning of August.  It's self explanatory.  It will remain mostly the same.  

Survivor Pool
The Survivor Pool point payout has already been listed above for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th.

The way this works is as follows.   You choose one team each week that you think will win the game.  If you get it right you move on to the next week.  If you're wrong you get a strike.  If you're wrong a second time, you're out.

5 point bonus's for remaining after week 4, 8, and 12
You can only use each team once a season.
