National Football League Prediction Comp

Watch this space!

I hope to start up some kind of National League prediction competition for the craic.

The idea is for people to predict the result of the 8 games for each round in Div 1 and 2.

I am hoping to use the poll feature so each game would have a W D L option. I’m not sure if a weekly rolling score can be kept or anything and it would be best if it’s an open poll so that people can’t change predictions … not that they would. John Costello has promised me two All Ireland tickets for the winner if we can get it going.

It is just a concept now. Knowing my luck somebody here with IT smarts and know-how will hijack the idea from Luddite me and start their own comp which will be much better than mine …before I even get the chance.

Wouldn’t even need a polls, just post up the 8 fixtures during the week, get lads to reply to it with their predictions (Dublin by 5 for eg) and then update a table on this thread after every weekend with scores, might take a bit of effort but I’ll give ya a hand with it if you need.

1 point correct win
2 points correct margin
3 points correct draw

Or something like that.

I’d keep it simpler - just W D L. 8 fixtures - 4 pts for a draw, 3 for away win and 2 for home win. (Dublin games at Croker to count as home games even though they’re not)

Poll on the scoring system, the GAA is a Democratic organisation after all :joy::joy:

No spoilt vote option?

Had a real go at this earlier but got frustrated and gave up after three minutes.

Throw some money at it…might fix the problem.like your club did in 99.:laughing::laughing:
