Why even have a Puppy Bowl if we can’t play Fantasy Puppy Bowl?
Short version of the rules:
Pick five of these puppies. That’s your team. Pick a tie-barker.Â Beat the competition. Win a t-shirt from Store 716.
Deadline for entry is Sunday 2/2/14 at 3PM Eastern time.
Full rules and entry form are belowÂ but first– Â the dogs.
Puppy Bowl Fantasy Scoring:
7 points for a touchdownÂ â There are actual touchdowns. There were 7 touchdowns scored in Puppy Bowl IX and they were scored by 7 different puppies. In the instance that two dogs both drag a toy into the end zone, they will each receive 7 points.
5 points for a penaltyÂ â The ref must throw the flag to present a puppy as a guilty party. Penalties include unnecessary cuteness, unnecessary Ruff-ness, and intentional growling. Sometimes the ref will throw a flag at all of the puppies on the field. In that case, every dog on the field gets 5 points.
Total rushing yardsÂ â Only positive yards count. I will measure when a toy was picked up and how many yards forward the dog brings the toy. If two dogs are engaged with the same toy, they will both get a point for each yard. Again, only positive yards are counted. No forward progress. The rushing attempt is calculated by the point at which the dogs pick up the ball + the amount of yards they move in the original directionâŚ Unless the puppy scores a touchdown on the rush. If a rushing attempt results in a touchdown, I will calculate yards from the point at which the puppy changed directions to reach the end zone. Got it?
Rushing yards must be featured as rushing attempts by the Puppy Bowl announcing crew. I canât keep track of every instance of rushing.
5 points for any dog who is the focus of a slow-motion âCute Camâ featureÂ -Â Sometimes, theyâll show slow-motion replay footage that is NOT âCute Camâ. You do not get points for ordinary non-âCute Camâ slow-motion footage. The announcer will name a dog before throwing it to cute cam. That is the dog who gets 5 points. Any dog mentioned by name during the âCute Camâ footage gets the points.
5 points for Nameplate Feature- If your puppy gets a nameplate graphic posted on the screen at any point in time AFTER itâs announced in the starting line-up, you get 5 points.
I donât even want to go into detail how hard itâs going to be to score this, but it is possible. I watched hours of Puppy Bowl coverage to come up with this.
