Everyone is invitated to join the Brazilian prediction league 2005. If there are no objections, I will run the league and take care of posting results after each round is played. The league will be played until the Brasileiro is over, after what the final results will be announced.

Here are the rules:


1. Each match's exact result should be predicted.
2. If you predict correctly who will win, or that it will be a draw, you get 5 points.
3. If additionally, you correctly predict the result, you get additional 2 points.
(Example: you predict a game Botafogo - Goias to end 2:1 in favour of Botafogo. If Goias draws or wins the game, you get no points for this game. If Botafogo wins the game by any other result than 2:1, you get 5 points for correctly predicting the outcome of the game. However, if Botafogo wins exactly by 2:1, you get 5 points plus a 2 point bonus (which makes a total of 7 points, the last time I checked it out).
4. In case of equal number of points, the winner will be the one, who has collected most 2 point bonuses during the season.
5. In case of equal number of 2 point bonuses, both (or all) players with the same number of points and 2 point bonuses will be winners.
6. To make prediction league more interesting for people that miss a few rounds I suggest that for the final score, only BEST rounds for each player are taken into account (in case of Brasileiro I suggest BEST 36 rounds). This means that even if you miss the first 5 rounds (or somewhere in between), you still have a chance to win the whole thing.


Any objections, ideas comments?

It's called "silent enthusiasm". It's the hottest new fad among the kids. You just grit your teeth and contain your excitement without saying anything, until all the concentrated tension is released in a single, noisy fart. If you do it right, all vegetable life in a 50m radius will die instantly. :skull:

Now, on to the predictions:

23.4.
Atletico-MG 2 x 1 Figueirense
Parana 2 x 2 Goias
Flamengo 2 x 3 Cruzeiro
São Caetano 0 x 1 Palmeiras

24.4.
Corinthians 2 x 1 Juventude
Fluminense 3 x 2 São Paulo
Fortaleza 1 x 2 Coritiba
Internacional 3 x 2 Botafogo
Atletico-PR 1 x 0 Ponte Preta
Brasiliense 3 x 3 Vasco
Santos 3 x 1 Paysandu

Yes, HERE. It's in Portuguese, but it shouldn't be a problem to read the tables – these are what the columns stand for, in english and in portuguese:

PG – Points Won (pontos ganhos)
J – Games (jogos)
V – Victories (vitorias)
E – Draws (empates)
D - Defeats (derrotas)
GP - Goals Scored (gols pro)
GC – Goals Suffered (gols contra)
SG - Goal Difference (saldo de gols)

And the colors illustrate which competitions the club at those positions would qualify for. The team in yellow (1st-placed) qualifies to both the Libertadores and the Sulamericana, the teams in green (2nd to 4th) qualify to the Libertadores Cup, the teams in blue (5th to 11th) qualify for the Sulamericana, and the teams in red (19th to 22nd) are relegated.

Hope that helped. ;)
