Post by kensrs » 08 Apr 2019, 06:06

MUST ENTER BY FRIDAY AT 4PM PST

All yes/no playoff questions.
Winner gets 2 free videos, if they get all 8 right they get 5 videos.

Congrats to jthomas who won our last one
You guys hit 21 you win a free video, my entry is included.
1/2 of you beat me so you get the extra free video this week.

Here is what I am offering this week:
1. If over 1/2 of you beat me, you get an extra free video from me.
2. If we hit the number players listed above this week, I will release an extra free video for you guys, this is super easy number for us to hit.
3. Anyone who wins the contest and goes 8 for 8 will win 5 free videos of your choice that are already out. I might not have everyone on file but should have most for you.

So you guys have every reason possible to enter.

Here is the schedule for this weeks contest, just pick the winners of each matchup.
Whoever gets most picks right wins, if there is a tiebreaker we go to the tie-breaker question.
If we are tied after the tie-break question, I will award the win to whoever posted their picks first on this thread.
All entries before the first game will be counted towards contest numbers, any picks after the first game will not be eligible to win.
My entry does not count towards your goal so if goal is XX entries, you need to get to XX entries + me to get any free videos.

NO CHEATING, I CAN SEE IP ADDRESSES SO DON'T ENTER MORE THEN ONCE, IF YOU GUYS CANT GET 20 PEOPLE INTO A FREE CONTEST TO WIN FREE VIDEOS, IDK WHAT TO SAY. JUST DONT CHEAT!!!!

I can't f-ing believe that Tampa got swept by Columbus. Anyone who said no to number one struck gold.

Tampa was (what?) tied for the best regular season NHL record of all time, at 62 wins and 20 losses? People thought they'd walk to the Cup. They were incredible!

crazy, looks like more lower seed will win in first round than higher seeds.
It might be 6-2 or 7-1 in favor of lower seeds, lol
