    The long awaited, free to play.... fun for all...
    2012 AMA Supercross Fantasy League! ---> SXFL
    by ADVrider
    Join in!! and bench race the AMA 2012 SuperCross class season!




    Trending in the thread, currently:(Feb25'12) Rules clarification, etc:


    --If a rider is docked points/DQ'd, or time added, the FINAL official AMA scoring will be used for SXFL page15
    --Where are the official results, like for the holeshot?
    ans:results.amasupercross.com page#9
    --Rd#3 ruling: link





    SXFL
    Rules and scoring:

    1. Main event scores points only...
    2. Your picks for each round must be POSTED no later than midnight PST 12:01am, Saturday/raceday.
    --a. You can/should be allowed to change your picks for any reason, until say 12am midnight PST, Saturday, raceday.
    3. points are scored for guessing the top five positions in the correct order, each correct guess scores points
    4. There are 3 wildcards per race, holeshot, fast lap and the 7/8 coin flip(HS,FL,CF)
    --a. Each wildcard scores 3 pts.
    5. Rules interpretations not explicit above will be addressed as they arise(such as red flag restart of rd#3)
    6. It's all about fun! let's joke about, bench race and call our inner Swammi's.

    7. PLEASE don't edit your pick post after the race is over...maybe quote your post??
    and total it in the quoted post
    (not required, i'll total it slowly anyways, but if you edit your post, there is no longer proof your picks were submitted by the deadline...)

    Awarded points:
    get 1st right, get 5 points
    2nd-4pts
    3rd-3pts
    4th-2pts
    5th-1pt
    each 'wildcard' pick scores 3pts.....
    holeshot - 3 pts, 7/8 coin flip -3pts,fast lap - 3 pts
    hs=
    cf=
    fl=


    additional clarifications:
    Rd#3 ruling:(reviewed)
    Red flag was on the first lap. Race start was null and void.
    Race had a complete restart.

    The restart holeshot is the one scored.
    Red flag AFTER 3 laps by leader, the HS 3pts is scored on the original start.

    The lowest scoring round will be dropped...so only your highest 15 rounds cound toward the total.


    This is SX class only...unless Lites are wanted also?...so i left room for both classes in the post structure..
    SX + wSXL +eSXL


    scoring must be POSTED no later than midnight PST 12:01 am Saturday, race day.

    You can/should be allowed to change your picks for any reason, until say 12am midnight PST, Saturday, raceday.

    'call your own' points for tally..?after the weekend is over? some weeks i might score the points after the TV broadcast, some on sundays...always try to have the leaderboard updated by Sunday night, race week.

    16 more rounds...
    can you claim to be the most in tune with the SX nation?

    All right, I'm in. I would have only scored 3 points at A1 so I'll need to improve!

    This looks like a more conventional SX track and much like Pheonixs' we've seen in the past. I'm gonna try again and say;

    1. JS7
    2. RV
    3. RD
    4. CR22
    5. Brayton

    Holeshot to Mike Alessi, he WILL lead the first lap accross the line.

    VC, if JS7 or someone else hurts himslef this week in practice, can I or others edit our predictions as long as it is before the race?

    yes, unless injury is ON race day(race activities)

    Injury during the week up to race day, of course you could change it...

    You can/should be allowed to change your picks for any reason, until say 12am midnight PST, Saturday, raceday.
    freebie preview round...
    sorry zenjen...(but yes, you would have had 8 pts)

    should have started this a couple of weeks before the season...so the rules and points are firm..

    Trying to keep it very simple...and fun


    no solid rules yet, so no valid points yet, sorry




    :hide

    *edit* firm rules..
    want it to stay really simple, but fun..
    call it done?:ear

    Is it fair that we can make alterations until midnight PST, to be fair to the left coasters, Friday nights? If your picks post is edited after that your tally does not count for that week.

    done
    I could use some input...but i wanted simple fun rules..but I haven't EVER screwed with this..

    the wildcard for now is fastest lap of event

    but there will be a firm ' 7/8 coin flip' each week....for 3 pts.
    coin flip= 78CF=cf
    'Which rider will finish ahead of the other? last rounds position 7, or last rounds position 8?'

    SX class was
    7 short
    8 windham

    w-SXL
    7 J.Anderson
    8 W.Hahn


    For Example, one class for next round,
    phoenix
    is shaping up like..

    ( MY class picks post!!! lol)
    1-JS7
    2 RV
    3 RD
    4 CR22
    5-weimer
    hs- RV
    cf- short
    fl- RV

    O.k., so I have edited my prediction post from above to reflect the new guidelines that VC just posted. It looks like this;

    All right, I'm in. I would have only scored 3 points at A1 so I'll need to improve!

    This looks like a more conventional SX track and much like Pheonixs' we've seen in the past. I'm gonna try again and say;

    1. JS7
    2. RV
    3. RD
    4. CR22
    5. Canard


    Holeshot to Mike Alessi.

    7/8 coin flip I look for Short to finish better than Windham.

    Fast lap to Stewart


    Does that look right VC?

    EDIT: Canard is in so I edited my prediction to put Canard in 5th. I am liking Brayton, but I can't see him beating his teammate.

    yes, totally correct!




    i'm afraid people won't play if it's TOO much..

    but the holeshot, 7/8 coin flip, and (maybe) wildcard allow folks to score SOME points cause,
    i bet it's rare someone totals...24pts for the round..

    1-5 = 15 pts...hs+cf+wc = 9 pts...

    so? 24?
    that's enough...points-wise, agreed?

    How about....
    just guess rider with fastest lap of the event, per class?

    The last 2 of you have picked Stewar to finish second which is interesting to me becuase in my mind Stewart doesn't ride well to second place finishes. It seems like it's either get out front and hide or brain yourself trying. I guess we'll see in a few hours! I can't wait! And the Niners on TV before the SX! Good day!

    My thinking there is that Stewart will crash early, then work his way through the pack like he usually does, but RV is so fast right now that Bubba won't be able to catch him and end up 2nd. We'll see in a few hours!

    Go 49ers! I miss Joe and Rice.

    I thought stewart was tearing it UP last week, but got a terrible start while RV was up front quick, without getting slowed, trying to sort the pack.

    CR seemed to pull a few bike lengths ahead of the pack going into turn 1, like the transmission and engine are dialed...
    we'll see THIS week who repeats a strong showing.:wink:


    Like a HUGE turn one pile up :augie might lead to
    1 brayton
    2 windham
    3 short
    4 alessi
    5 weimer
    hs weimer
    fl windham

    only the 7/8 CF is a safe bet....lol




    Another thing about LAST week, is that it was such an odd, off angle, non-conventional track. Tons of popups, and things to nearly stop the riders..and those looooong, looping turns

    This week is a pretty standard 180s, 3x 2x 2x, turn 90, whoops turn 180, track...
    and Phoenix usually has tacky dry hardpack that holds up well...
