Finally the results are up – the winner of the season are as shown!
This is confusing but I’ve created tables so that everyone can see where they ranked for all the weeks that they played. Six of us managed to pick every single week. If I do this again next year I’ll probably come up with some default method of scoring – default to 0-0 draws.
And the Winner IS BE!
Some interesting take-aways here.
Despite losing in the regular point scoring system, I actually won using the alternate points system. I will take this as I know that during discussions we actually all agreed that this was the fairest scoring system as it accounts for getting number of goals correct (i.e. picking a 1-1 draw when it’s 3-1 would score a point).
We had also discussed the scoring bias for draws and there is show to be true with the current system.
Next year the alternate scoring system.
You win a great prize:
Unfortunately, if you are not here to pick it up in person it goes to the next placed position. That would be 2nd… and it’s ME!
There is also a runner-up prize:
The runner-up also needs to be here in person and they are…. because it’s ME!
How did you Compare
Trying to keep things a fair comparison – these tables show how you finished in the games where you played.
AM will be happy because he will probably win a prize (donated by ME) I don’t know what it is but it will look something like this:
And here are the rest…. it’s very disappointing to see ME at the bottom so much.
Luckily we have LJ to prop us all up.
What about Mark Lawrenson and the Super Computer?
I can’t be sure to get all Lawro’s picks correct because sometimes the picks don’t get published but it’s the best I can do. The Supercomputers feature heavily in the top half of the table. Last year’s “winner” was SC3 and despite a very poor start to the year it slowly climbed up the table.
This year BE held off the human and automated challengers.
Tomorrow I will post your tables and the head-to-heads and maybe a few comments.
