CFL Contests Launch With 2007 CFL Season

Wednesday, June 27th, 2007 by Jon

Tomorrow the 2007 CFL season gets under way and along with it three Overtime Central contests to challenge your CFL prognosticating skills. There is a wide-range of announcements that I would like to make regarding the new contests.

  • If you have not signed up as of yet, check out the contest rules and consider giving one of them a go.
  • If you have signed up and made all your picks already, consider posting on one of the contest forums.
  • At the bottom of your contest page, there is an entry preferences section. You can sign up for emailed reminders, pick confirmations and status updates.
  • I have noted roster moves in this forum post and have updated the draft list with some missing players now that rosters have been set. Please let me know if I am missing anyone you wish to draft.
  • Pick reminder emails are being sent out tonight, a little late the first time as I was waiting for additional entries.
  • There will not be any Overtime Central season or week previews this year as my time will be spent on other things.

    Fans Upset at Being Turned Away → Similar sentiments in Regina after the playoff game sold out. Why do fans feel so entitled to tickets just for making an effort? There is a limit to the number of seats and you take your chance when the demand is there. Unfortunately, in Toronto where more fans need exposure to the Argos, they could not get everyone in, but creating demand by limiting supply is one way to ensure ticket buyers do not always wait until the last game of the season. #
