Department of Fandemonium CONTEST


Doubleheader today. Not only is there a blog post on a discussion of LBers, but we also have a Department of Fandemonium Ultimatenyg Contest.

The nice people at Monster.com Fandemonium are going to give away an autographed NFL football signed by Michael Strahan to the winner of the Ultimatenyg New York Giants Blog contest. But first a word from our sponsor:

Monster.com and the NFL held a competition to find the Ultimate NFL Fan. Michael Strahan hosted the competition. Tons of video, Strahan Bloopers, you name it. And if you need a job, Monster.com is your site.

The Ultimatenyg Challenge- Name the players that get drafted in Rounds 1 through 3 of the draft by the NY Giants. That is 5 selections (1, 2a, 2b, 3a, 3b).

Scoring:

5 points: each correctly MATCHED selection.
3 points: right player, wrong spot
2 points: wrong player, right position
1 point : wrong player, wrong position, right position elsewhere in first 5 spots

Tiebreaker-the entry which is submitted into the blog comments section FIRST.

You can guess a trade for any pick or combination of picks. Simply select what the pick was traded for. Any guess of a trade needs to be submitted at least the previous day BEFORE the trade is announced by Ralph Vacchianno of the Daily News in order to be accepted. Players and their position chosen in rounds 4 through 7 have no bearing on the contest. Answers must be submitted to THIS post's comments section.

SAMPLE
1 - Britt WR
2a - Freeman LB
2b - Robinson G
3a - Johnson S
3b - Turner WR

ACTUAL
1 - Nicks WR
2a - Greene RB
2b - Brinkley LB
3a - Loadholt OT
3b - Turner WR

Sample Score= 2 + 1 + 0 + 0 + 5= 8 points

Winner gets a Michael Strahan autographed NFL Football (a $300 value) with free shipping. Courtesy of MONSTER.COM and the guys at M80 newsroom. Good luck.

obviously will change if theres is a trade for a certain receiver with another weird first name.

Plaxico, Braylon, weird names

Andy F. said...

314 hits in the last 12 hrs since the contest opened, and only ONE entry?! Tough contest, eh?! ONE person who is brave enough to swing and miss in public?! No one ever said this was going to be easy.

HINT for your selections- what did Eli say yesterday?!

2a. Kenny Britt WR Rutgers
2b.*Trade for Braylon Edwards
3a. Marcus Freeman OLB Ohio State

(Put names up on a dart board..blindfolded )

Bass said...

1A: Clay Matthews, OLB, USC
2A: Xavier Fulton, OT, Illinois
2B: Kenny Britt, WR, Rutgers
3A: Javon Ringer, RB, Michigan State
3B: Dannell Ellerbe, ILB, Georgia

Andy F. said...

Unfortunately, some rules minutae...

1) Reminder- for submissions that have a trade, "day" means calendar day, not 24 hour day. So if news broke right now about Edwards being traded, Crazed Giant is good and Mitch is not. After 12:01 AM Sunday morning, Mitch's trade picks are good as well.

2) In the remote chance that the Giants traded picks for any consideration that is not disclosed until AFTER the 3rd round of the draft, then your pick/s will get zero points. Example: the Giants trade for a 2010 draft pick. We're not waiting to find out what that was.

3) If the Giants trade for more picks than they give up, only the first of those picks will replace (and only if the pick/s is in Round 1-3). Example: the Giants trade their #1 for a #2c and #3c. The #2c choice would replace the #1. And #3c would have no bearing on the contest whatsoever.

1. traded to CLE
2a. Beatty OT CONN
2b. Moore S MIZZ
3a. Traded to CLE
3b. Barnes CB MD

i figured id factor the trade in there

Andy F. said...

Anyone has the right to change their picks. But you lose your original time stamp.

Craig- You need to specify who they trade for, otherwise you will not get any points. Plus, this way you can get partial points if you are wrong. I.e. you specify Edwards WR and they trade for Ocho Cinco, you would get 1 pt for WR and possibly two more if they used that precise selection for the trade.

this is way too intimidating for this lady giants fan. it seems like i have just about enough chances of winning this as i did my office bracket pool. HELP!

RobLaragh said...

Really just a guess, but...
1. Laurinaitis LB Ohio St
2a. Unger C/G Oregon
2b. Moore S Missouri
3a. Massaquoi WR Georgia

Still hoping for a trade for Braylon...but maybe this will hedge me if it doesn't happen.

PD2LISN said...

1. Clay Matthews, LB USC (had to trade up, but worth it)

2a. Traded to Cleveland for Edwards
(we got a 2nd and 5th for Shockey. Do not give up more than that... okay, maybe a 4th)

2b. Moore, S, Missouri

3a. Traded to move up to get Matthews

3b. Meredith, T, South Carolina

Andy F. said...

sorry PD2LISN, cannot take trades on last day of entry, unless you change them before 4PM it will count as a zero for each trade pick.

PD2LISN said...

So here is the revision, minus the trades...... Do you know how pissed I am going to be Andy when Reese makes those trades? Not very, because we will be set!!!!

1. Maualuga, LB, USC
2a. Britt, WR, Rutgers
2b. Moore, S, Missouri
3a. Vasquez, OT, Texas Tech
3b. Meredith, T, South Carolina

Andy F. said...

If the Giants got Maualuga, it would be a GREAT draft. If the Giants got Maualuga, Britt and Moore, it would be something very special, with so much promise. Wonder has Vasquez on his radar too, so this would be a great set. From your keyboard to Reese. We can only hope.

:-O did I win?

Redoing mine:

1) Trade up for Heyward Bey
2a)LB Sintim
2b)OT Beatty
3a) traded for HeyB
3b)S Hamlin
______

1) wrong person right position=2
2a) Bingo! = 5
2b) Bingo! = 5
3a) They used it for a WR in that spot and I said they would use it for a WR but a bit differently= 2?
3b) bust :(

14 points total... I think.

Andy F. said...

I have not looked today, but I did see last night you nailed the two. Anyone else strong? I see motown had barden and Brown (wrong spot).

Andy F. said...

I have Adam M Osman as the winner with 14 points, and Coop67 as runnerup with 12. If anyone sees that as incorrect, please let me know. Congrats Adam!

I am really impressed with the great job people did on their picks. This was a difficult contest and there were lots of really good entries. Lots of Sintims! I hope he does well for the Giants.

Adam M Osman said...

Not only does reading your blog give me great insights and analysis but my first piece of Giants Memorablia as well!

Thanks so much! Let me know if there is anything I need to do to claim it.

Thanks!
