United Football League (UFL) Pools

2024-02-09:

We're proud to announce that we now support several formats for the new United Football League (UFL)!

New Tie-Breaker Options

2024-01-28:

We've introduced two new tie-breaker options for declaring final winners:

  1. Picks: Ties will be settled by the participant who has scored the most number of correct picks.
    Applicable for Pick Em (when Best is enabled), Confidence and Margin formats only.
  2. Max Weights: Ties will be settled by the participant who has scored the most number of correct max weights. If still tied, the next highest weights will be considered until the tie is broken.
    Applicable for Confidence format only.
Site Updates

2024-01-25:

In an attempt to keep our cherished users (that's you! 🙂) informed of the new features and bug fixes we've made, we've introduced this here page to announce and log these site updates.

Bug Fix

2024-01-24:

We deployed a bug fix to our Manage Participants page resolving an error that was occurring when a participant who owed more than $999 was being marked as paid.

Thanks Al for bringing it to our attention! 👍

Navigational Improvements

2023-12-28:

We've implemented some navigational improvements on all pool pages displaying pool handles.

For a consistent experience, all pool handles are now links that when clicked, provides more info about the participant, and includes navigational links to highlight them in associated pool pages.

Pick Insights

2023-11-27:

We've resurrected a page we used to call Pick Distribution as Pick Insights! See how successful you are picking each team: overall, when picking with them, and when picking against.

An improvement from its predecessor: the insights are viewable in several splits (Overall, Home and Away, plus Favorite and Underdog for pools playing the spread)!

You'll find this new pool page under:
Pool Menu > Pool Stats > Pick Insights.

Applicable for Pick Em, Confidence and Margin formats only.

A New Ingredient: Graphs!

2023-11-14:

We've added a Summary tab to Standings page that summarizes your (or any selected participant's) week's (or overall for Bracket) performance, with a new ingredient! Graphs that plot:

  • Week-by-Week (or Round-by-Round for Bracket) Scoring
  • Weeks (or Rounds for Bracket) Above Average
  • Overall Scoring
  • Overall Ranking

Don't worry, we didn't remove the Standings tables! We just relocated them under a new Standings tab on the page.

We also added to the All Picks page experience (well we think anyway), by adding a Scoring Distribution tab that:

  • Shows your (or any selected participant's) score against the week's (or overall for Bracket) average, min and max scores
  • Graphs the week's (or overall for Bracket) scoring districution

Applicable for Pick Em, Confidence, Margin and Bracket formats only.

Squares Pools Expansion

2023-10-03:

We've implemented a significant improvement to our Squares Pool format! Now you can use it for any game you want!

Just enter the team names and game time when setting up your pool in the Wizard, and enter the scores during the game to have us declare the winning squares!
