Follow the directions and directly you will be directed in the right direction.

Step #1 - Create an account. It's free, easy, and all you need is a valid email address. Don't worry, I won't use your address for spam. It's only for updates on weekly winners and for getting a heads up on upcoming matchups. If you don't want these either, let me know by clicking on the contact link, or just email me at dobie@dobiebowl.com. C'mon it takes less than a minute, then you're on your way!

 
Step #2 - Login. Just enter the username and password you created and you're in!
 
Step #3 - Make your picks. Once you've logged in, you should be automatically directed to the NFL weeks page. If not, you can always get back there by clicking on the "NFL Weeks" button on the left side of the screen. These picks can be updated right up until the games begin, then you'll be locked in.
 
Winners - The winner of each week will be determined by the player who picks the most number of games correctly. In the event of a tie, the tied player with the closest total weekly score will be declared the winner. The total weekly score will be determined by adding the score of each team in each game together. These scores will be counted for every matchup of the week even for weeks in which the players failed to correctly pick the winner. The player's total score can exceed the actual total score produced by the weeks matchups, and still be counted as the closest. (i.e. Juts' total score is 356, Dobie's total score is 340, the actual total score is 350, Juts wins 6 to 10) In the case of identical correct picks and total weekly score, the winner will be determined by the usual Rock, Paper, Scissors best of three, followed by throwing darts blindfolded best of 7, and finally a duel to the death*.
 
The Dobiebowl Football Trophy - Oh yes, it's real. And I'm really mailing it to the player who wins this whole damn thing. In order to take home the glory, you'll need to make the most number of correct picks all year long. This includes The Regular Season, The Playoffs, and The Superbowl. This means, you don't hafta worry about losing again and again and again... and again, 'cause there are people out there unable or unwilling to play every week. You can get the one-up on 'em by shaking it off and continuing to play. The more you do, the better your chance at Dobiebowl immortality.
 
*Duel to the Death rules are set by Captain Kirk ala the first season of the original Star Trek.
