I have some good news about Calcomatic.com - I was able to get the MFL data to work!!!!!!    Big props to @Alberta Clipper for doing all the leg work/research/setup on the MFL side of things! How

I went through this thread and counted 67 entries to make @Joe Bryant noon ET cut off.  Here they are, by page number of this thread: 1 - @dbc925 2 - @-OZ-  @Milkman  @Stray Doug  @barackdhouse

Started the week with 32 left from Joe's extra contest.  Here is how they finished the week (cut was 121.15)... @BroadwayG  173.80 @Go DC Yourself  165.45 @Kujjie  161.25 @themeanmachine  160.75

I'm sure our GB's here are already doing that.  As JB previously posted, official results will be posted on Friday.

In year's past, someone found an error after the results were posted and brought it to the attention of the staff.  The rules state you have a narrow window to report any discrepancies.  Hopefully the calcomatic is off and you took first.

That's AWESOME! Congratulations Buddy!

Doug is working on finalizing scoring and will have it this week. 

Thank you!  I've been here from close to day 1 and some (most) years have been eliminated by weeks 3-4.  Crazy year!  Thank you again!

Weeks 12 & 13 were my team's best two weeks of the season (thanks to D Henry, Gibson, Waller, Corey Davis, and some others), and I am just 2.55 points short of being in second place.

Unfortunately, those 2.55 points would have to come in week 8 when I was eliminated.

At 429.5, I must have one of the strongest ghost teams around.

618.1 (201.25 + 228.25 + 188.6) for the finals which would've won the thing. Eliminated in week 8.

Sweetening the pot a little here for Shark Pool posters.

Prize payout structure is sweet:

 

If you post your lineup here by noon ET Wednesday, and don't change it before lock,

I'll add a $100 price to whatever you win and a lifetime Football subscription

IF you finish in the top 100.

 

Thanks to @SeniorVBDStudent for the clarity.

 

 

Ok, what's the final for this for the people who posted their lineups and finished in the Top 100? 

I've got:

@Raging weasel

Who else? If you're there, please post the link for where you posted the lineup. Thanks.

Y'all crushed this year.

2nd place and less than half a point from 1st!!!  OMG!

Congrats to the 1st place winner! 

Thanks to @Joe Bryant @David Dodds and the rest of my GB's that make up the staff!

Congratulations @St. Louis Bob and everyone else that ended in the top 150. Crazy it came down to the final minutes of the Monday night game and ended with such a small gap between 1st and 2nd. My team was 106645. I was sweating this all week 😃.

Sure wish I saw this when it was posted. Been here a long time but unfortunately life came along and I don't get to frequent the boards much these days. Congrats to all those that cashed!! First time I have ever cashed in this contest but I enjoy it every year and picking your team is so much fun and actually helps me a ton with prep for the year. Thanks Joe and Co.!!

Joe,

Only 3 made it to the finals, but 2 teams finished in the top 100...

@Raging weasel - team # 103462 - 20th place - 569.70 points - page 9, posted 9 Sep 7:47 am

@4th&inches - team # 103205 - 85th place - 506.50 points - page 10, posted 9 Sep, 10:51 am

@gobrowns33 - team # 100246 - 125th place - 483.45 points - page 9, posted 9 Sep, 5:19 am

Once again, thanx for the extra incentive this year.  This was my worst year, getting ousted in week 4.  Still, you made me enjoy following all the eligible teams.  Bring on the playoff contest!

491.50 for me, good enough for 113th place.  Too bad I was eliminated multiple times before week 12.

Hey guys - I've enjoyed running Calcomatic for the last several years but I'm opting not to run anything for the playoff contest this year and obviously won't be running anything for future years of the contest.  I appreciate all your support over the years!

Thanks Steeler!  Sorry to hear yu won't be running it for future years of the contest... what's the "obviously" part though?  Am I forgetting something from earlier in this thread? I know it was a pain to scramble to point to MFL instead of the prior feed, but now that work is done is there additional lift for future seasons?

At the beginning of every year I have to load all the entries.  Then each week I have to do "maintenance" on the sight  to flag the teams that have been eliminated, reset the scores to zero, etc.  I'm just tired of the weekly/yearly overhead of running the contest.

As much as I hate to see you say this, I understand and can only imagine how much work it is to keep up with it. Thank you for doing it though, calcomatic is one of my favorite things about fantasy football.

Steeler, thank you very much for making this contest the funnest thing I have ever done in FF.  I wish I was computer savvy enough to take over for you.

I was trying my hardest not to mention it, in hopes that only 5 people would enter.

Should be loaded very soon.  Links already have placeholders under "Contests", then "2021 Subscriber Contest - Postseason".
First link will eventually be the entry form.  The second link are the rules, and is currently last year's rules.  Dates are pretty much the only thing that will change when it gets updated.

Yes. Every winner has been contacted by email. If you haven't seen yours, something is wrong with the email address you gave or it's in spam. Send an email to dodds@footballguys.com and let him know.

Yes, we're going to do the same free playoff contest for subscribers we've done in past year. Like always, it will be ready on Wednesday.

That is separate from the Footballguys Playoff Challenge that is $35 and has a $100,000 Grand Prize.
