Batman and NYJCAP both picked the Spain-Croatia game correctly with the right score and got 2.50 points.
VFernand, Frostlich and I got the Italy-Ireland game correctly with the right score and only got 2.25 points
I think part of it depends on how many pick the right score. So, if only one person picked the right score they might get like 3 points total....otherwise the points are divided equally for that game....that's the best sense I can make of it anyway. OH...that's assuming Rusty isn't cheating.
Which is a complete fluke given I know virtually nothing about European football this season - I didn't even know the French were unbeaten for whatever games until the TV told me something like that after one of their games in the Euro. My "throw a dart" method will end in tears by the end of the tourney. Wish I'd put some $ on some of the games though! Also, I'm ahead of only about 8 people who are taking this seriously?
^ ^ the pics above, Sort of what I was getting at with that "pictures from the crowd" thread I started here somewhere some weeks ago, just never got around to hunting around for pics for it. Every tourney needs some gratuitous female pics to complete it.
Didn't end up getting Setanta to watch the games and now its too late - just seen some highlight footage - I'll watch the quarters and semis on stream - the final will be live here on free to air TV.
Seems to be a recurring theme for guys in 1st place.
I am a "soccer" fan though - just haven't been following it this past season and a half. Not a complete noob as you know - funny in my local football tipping comp (for the local football league for Aussie Rules football) I am running next to last and I get all the latest news and stats etc. I think the more info you have sometimes the worse you can be - the throw a dart method has something to recommend it in my case in terms of the Euros. Sh*t if an octopus can pick the winners of the World Cup what does that say?
If I claim the Euro tipping thing I'll put a picture of some calamari as my sig, and frankly I think that would be appropriate. In fact whoever wins it I think that should be mandatory - a picture of an octopus or a squid for their sig.
