RULES for the Serie A Prediction League

1. Each week a new thread will be started on Monday by the moderators with a list of the upcoming weeks games. In this thread you should post your predictions on what you think the actual out comes of the games will be. The easiest way is to copy/paste the list of games and to just insert the results that you think will happen.

Note: Do NOT start a thread if one does not yet exist! A moderator or site admin will do it each week on Monday for the games for the upcoming week and weekend games.

2. Scoring: Updated for 2013/14
Three points will be available per game predicted:
1pt for predicting the winner
1pt for predicting the correct goal difference
1pt for predicting the actual score
NB: If you predict the actual score you will get 3 points (one for winner, goal difference and score)
Say the actual score is Milan 3-0 Inter
If you have predicted the following:
A Milan win 3-0 ---> 3 points
A Milan win 4-1 or 5-2 etc (with the same goal difference of +3) ----> 2 points
Any other Milan win ---> 1 point
Any Inter win ---> 0 points (and shame on you )
Any Draw ---> 0 points

Also, in regards to Draws
If you predict a Draw correctly with the actual score correct ---> 3 points
If you predict a Draw correctly with the wrong score ---> 2 points (as you will always have the goal difference correct in case of a draw)
If you predict a home or away win ---> 0 points

3. Predictions
- Predictions should be entered before the start of the respective round.
- You may post your predictions after the start of the round, but any games that have kicked off before your prediction is posted WILL NOT be counted.
- Please only post your prediction once each week!
- If you would like to change your prediction BEFORE the weekends games just edit your post.
- If you accidentally post two predictions and both are before the kickoff of the first game, the second prediction will be taken (and the first deleted). If one is after the kickoff of the first game, it will be deleted.
- Some weeks there will be two threads, one for the league games and one for the Coppa Italia/UEFA Cup/Champion's League games as stated before, it is fine to post 1 prediction in the league games thread and 1 prediction in the Coppa Italia/CL thread.
IMPORTANT: If you edit your post after the kickoff of the first match, then any match that has already been started WILL NOT be counted.

4. A Sticky Thread will be started, and updated after each round of Serie A, Coppa Italia and European games, to shower the "Leaderboard."
This thread will remain closed and is not for discussions, please use the Discussion Thread for questions or general chat.

5. The Champions League and Coppa Italia will also be added to the contest when the reach the appropriate stages of the competitions.
- The Coppa Italia will start at the Last 16
- The Champions League will start at the Group Stage
- The Europa League will start at the Group Stage

6. If the SAPL ends in a tie, we will decide as to what should be the tie breaker at that time.

7. Prizes: Prizes will be at the discression of the Moderators/Admin.

8. Please post your prediction is the following manner. Let say you think Milan (away team) win beat Hellas Verona (home team) 3 to nothing. It should be posted in the following manner:

Hellas Verona 0-3 Milan

If you have any questions about the rules or any questions in general about the game please post in the Discussion Thread or PM ulladullau and he would be glad to clairify and questions you may have.

Good Luck!!!
