The 2015 NFL Season
Posted by bullet.gif poolmeister on September 18 2015
NewsAnother season of NFL football is underway and after the first week, everyone is still trying to determine how some of these teams are going to fare against an ever increasing competitive environment. We have some new players in the pool this year along with the "old" gang which will keep the pool competition going. It is still early and everyone is starting from ground zero which makes for a rosy outlook.

Keep in mind that the weekly pots will keep you "in the money" even though you may be eliminated early from the quarterly pot. The Survivor pools also provide an other opportunity to make some of your money back. As always, I hope you have fun and in the process perhaps win some money.

I am always looking for other pools so if you have any ideas, let me know and I will see if we can either add it to this year's list of pools or add them in future years. Conversely, if you think some of the existing pools should be dropped, let me know about that as well. I think there is a good mix at the moment, but it is always good to review the overall field and make whatever changes are needed. Your opinion counts, so don't hesitate to express it by using the comments portion of this news module. You have to be a registered member of the site to post any comments however. "I'm listening".
The 2014 NFL Season - Recap
Posted by bullet.gif poolmeister on February 06 2015
NewsSuper Bowl XLIX...one of the better super bowls in recent memory. Unfortunately it was marred by a bad call by the Seattle Seahawks coach trying to pass from the 6 yard line with Marshawn Lynch ready and able to run it to give the Seahawks the win. As you might expect, the pass was intercepted and the New England Patriots won yet another Super Bowl. I don't know if it was a win by New England as much as it was a give away for the Seahawks. The record book reads the final score of New England 28 and Seattle 24 and that is the way it will stand.

Well, another year of Fred's Football Follies has come to an end and although there were some hiccups in the beginning of the season due in part to the new software being used to track the pool, I thought things went well as the season progressed. The new software allowed me to instantly import every player pick at one time saving me quite a bit of time. I expect that next year's version will have some other bells and whistles.

If you were lucky enough to win any money during the course of the year, congratulations to you and hope it will give you incentive to play again next year. I am also sending out my annual request to get some of your friends or co-workers to join the pool...the more players, the more money available to win.

I hope you had as much fun playing as I did running it and we will see you all in September.
The 2014 NFL Season
Posted by bullet.gif poolmeister on September 09 2014
NewsThe 2014 NFL season is underway and Week 1 is complete. Everyone starts off with a positive "can do" attitude both for the teams and the players in the pool. It seems that everyone has a chance to win on the field or in their pocketbooks. It will be interesting to see who comes out ahead.

In my opinion (and that is all it is), there are some teams that are already showing signs of having a bad year...NY Giants primarily, Dallas looked awful and the San Diego Chargers are playing their usual game...take a double digit lead and let it get away from them. I always thought that Norv Turner was the reason for that, but evidently it doesn't matter who coaches that team, the same results apply. Perhaps it is the players themselves?

On the other hand, Seattle is picking up where it left off and Atlanta showed some signs that it may be coming back from a poor season last year. It will be interesting to see who ends up in the Super Bowl this year and hope it is not the blow out that last year's Super Bowl turned out to be. I'm excited not only that the season has begun but that I may be able to make a better showing in the spreads pool...at least good enough to break even? Good luck to everyone and I hope you have fun!
The 2013 NFL Season - Recap
Posted by bullet.gif poolmeister on February 05 2014
NewsThe Super Bowl (such as it was) is over, the winners have been paid and the 2013 NFL season has come to a close. The vaunted Denver Broncos and everyone's pick to win Super Bowl XLVIII took a beating the likes of which has not been seen in quite a number of years. They were out of sync from the first play when the center hiked the ball into the end zone for a Seattle safety. It got much worse after that and the game turned into a rout. Seattle outplayed Denver in every way possible, offensively, defensively, special teams and coaching. The final score...Seattle 43 - Denver 8.

Yours truly had another forgettable season as far as winning anything, although I did improve my standings in the spreads pool by making a strong finish. I still ended up under .500 but did much better than the last few years. The Confidence Point Pool increased the number of players to 27 and hope that the upward trend continues. It also appears that the Straight Up Pool was a big hit, and although only 25 players participated, I am hopeful that more of you will play in future years.

Lastly, I hope you had as much fun playing as I did running the pool. Tell your friends about the pool and get them to join in the fun. I am now in the process of setting up the annual Oscars pool and will soon start on this year's March Madness (Tournament Tracker) pool. Have a great summer and "lets get ready to rumble" next year.
