This is the guess the points thread for the Pacer game vs. Washington on 10/11/2004.

Game time is 7:00 pm.

Full rules for the guess the score contest were last posted in TBD, however here is the short version:

The difference between your picks for each team and their real score is added together. That is your "off by". Lowest wins. You pick Pacers 90 Knicks 80. The real score is Knicks 95 Pacers 81. You are off by 24. (90-81) + (95-80).
No contingency picks.
The format of your post matters. See the full rules thread for details.
Winner gets his name listed in the winners list.

This thread will be closed to guesses and all valid guesses posted at approximately 15 minutes before game time.

Good luck.

Our D will be implemented but not our O. Luckily Washington will have neither.

Hey Doug, where are the official rules again? Says "posted on TBD."

Yep. TBD = To Be Determined.

The Pacers will use their bench more than the Wiz. The Wiz will use starters or at least regular players until the 4th quarter.

The Wiz will have their normal reserves vs. the guys who most likely won't make the team for the Pacers or will not get any PT during the season.

Do pre-season games count towards the overall tally for the season?

No. At least I think they don't. Or at least I think I shouldn't. Or, if they do, they won't after I rewrite that part of the code.

Postseason games, however, will still count.

That's right. I need to update the rules to say that guesses outside of normal ranges or fractional guesses will be tossed.

Last year somebody game RoboDoug a NumberFormatException by making a guess that was too big for a Java int to hold.

Thanks!

My HTML is a bit rusty, but I think it turned out OK for now.

I like being able to use HTML. Much more freedom in how I can lay things out. I had a lot of really kludgy code in the old RoboDoug to make sure I had enought spaces in my fixed width columns.
