It's time for the 3rd annual FanIQ Goal Streak contest. This is the poll that kicked of the string of "streak" polls a couple of seasons ago. It's a little tougher than the baseball hitting streak poll because goals are a little tougher to come by.
Past winners of the Goal Streak Poll:
Season 1: truejester with a streak of 10 (our all time leader)
Season 2: (4-way tie for first) derms33, Just_Smile, qtowndogg, and therick with streaks of 8.
Can you top that?
Here is a rundown of the rules. I will link each poll to this one in case someone needs a refresher of them.
The rules are simple: I will place the top 8 goals scored leaders playing that night, because 8 is all there is room for in a poll (I will use the players that are leading in goals at the time of the poll being created). You pick the player that you think will score a goal that night, and see how many days you can get correct answers in a row. Like a baseball players hitting streak, or a hockey players consecutive games with a goal streak, you will see how many days in a row you can guess which player will score a goal.
I will list all members who have an active streak going here in the description of each daily poll. After about the first week, I will also list the FanIQ Goal Streak hall of fame. It will be the top 3-5 longest streaks of all time on this poll.
If you miss a day, your streak will end. It is going to be enough of a task to keep up with everyone’s picks, so I can’t go a few days or weeks back to see when your last pick was. So if you make a pick daily, your streak continues if you make a correct pick. If you can not take a poll, you forget, or your answers don't go through, just send me a note or leave a comment on the poll letting me know who you pick and it will count. You MUST pick player that has not started his game yet.
If there are no games on a particular day, or if none of the answers I list are correct, everyone’s streak will roll over to the next day. We can’t help it if there are no games and all of you can’t help it if I pick a bunch of guys that don’t score. But if only one player on the list scores, that day will count.
*I will add a question or 2, along with a tiebreaker, so everyone with a correct answer won’t just get 0.81 points on the poll. I want this to actually be worth taking.*
We will start with the games today, October 1. I will try to get the poll out by 8:00 PM EST the night before each day. It might not be the most convenient time for everyone, but at least you will know for sure when it will be there. If for some reason I forget to post the poll or you can not find it, just drop me a note to remind me or I can send it to you.
Good luck everyone! I hope everyone enjoys this and we can keep it going for the rest of the season.
