Overview:
Each week, you will be paired up against another opponent. You will predict the winners of all 9 AFL games that week. You earn points for each team that wins, that you pick. Your total score will be compared to your opponent's that week. That comparison will determine if you win, lose, or tie that week.

Point Values:
Prior to each week, the Commissioner will divide the AFL standings or power ranking into 6 pods of 3 teams each. The top 3 teams are Pod 1, the next 3 are Pod 2, etc...
Once in pods, the following formula will be utilized to determine the value of each team that week. The numbers 1-6 below indicate the Pod number. The numbers in () reflect points assigned to that team.

(15) 1 vs 1 (15)(15) 2 vs 2 (15)(15) 3 vs 3 (15)(15) 4 vs 4 (15)(15) 5 vs 5 (15)(15) 6 vs 6 (15)
(10) 1 vs 2 (20)(12) 2 vs 3 (18)(13) 3 vs 4 (17)(13) 4 vs 5 (17)(14) 5 vs 6 (16)---
(8) 1 vs 3 (22)(10) 2 vs 4 (20)(11) 3 vs 5 (19)(12) 4 vs 6 (18)------

(4) 1 vs 6 (26)---------------
Visiting teams will also get 2 extra points added to their assigned point values.

AFL Style Scoring:
To make our final scores resemble Australian Style, the number of goals you attained will be the sum of all games picked that you won + any games you picked correctly between two teams that were within 10 assigned points of each other. The number of behinds attained will be based on the difference between the total points your scored and the points scored via goals.

Making Picks:
For the first year, picks will be done solely by email. The Commissioner will email all participants the AFL schedule for the upcoming week. Each player will then reply with their choices.

Schedule:
The league will utilize a round-robin style schedule with no divisions. The top 4 teams will clinch playoff spots.
