Predictions Competitions

We run a weekly predictions league. Details of the standings and results so far are over at Amfoot Predictions Competition 2004 page.

  • At the start of the week someone will post a list of the weekend's fixtures.
  • You predict which team will win each game.
  • After the actual games have been played, someone evaluates all the predictions and announces a winner for the week.
  • To be considered as the winner for the overall season you will need to participate on at least 12 weeks of the 17-week regular season.
  • The overall winner will be the person with the best winning percentage.
  • The tie-breaker will be having won on the most individual weeks.

Click on the week number to get to the appropriate thread.

2003 Predictions Winner - Wildman - 168 of 256 correct - 0.6563

Other Games We Play

Along the way we've had some good times, we've had some funs, we've played some games. Of course the Amfoot Trivia Questions are across the way, but there are also these games to play.

H2G2 Fantasy Football League

Commissioner Blathers has set us up the H2G2 Fantasy Amfoot League over on Yahoo! Wildman has done us the honour of setting up a page for it. You can find out how we're doing over there.

Amfoot Trivia Questions - Hall of Fame

The ATQHoF now has 2 members Fiedlers Fizzle and Blues Shark. Click here to go visit the Hall.

The Trivia Questions themselves have been split off to their own entry to avoid them dominating the Forum.
