The 2019 National Football League is up and running and, following the weekend’s first round of action, so too is this year’s NFL prediction mini-league, brought to you once again thanks to the IT wizardry of Facetheball.com.
A total of 116 hopefuls went to post before the off on Saturday evening (you can still join, by the way, but, to continue the racing analogy, you’ll be carrying top weight as you’ll have missed picking up any Round 1 points), which makes the competition more midi than mini. The first week saw some very accurate predicting and some godawful soothsaying, with close on 120 points separating first place from last.
Leading the pack after Week 1 is Pat Leyden but a mere 15 points separates the top ten on the leaderboard. I’m in the mix myself, sitting pretty on seventh, and happy enough with how I got on, in particular my decision to plump for Monaghan against Dublin yesterday.
But this is only the start and good beginnings can soon get washed away once those gut-feeling decisions start to go against you. Wherever you are in the table after Week 1, then, don’t get too comfortable, as you could well find yourself shifting up or down after next weekend’s predictions.
Here’s the leaderboard after Week 1, featuring the top ten placing in this year’s mini-league.

I am looking to finish in the top 3, I looked at this leaderboard board this past two years but only found out how to join last week
Top 4 will get you champions league Mayo 88 😉 Meanwhile…i’m hovering over relegation after round 1..despite nailing a draw in the cork fermanagh game…and a one point win for westmeath. Had Armagh to win by a point too but kildare snatched an injury time leveller….zero points!

Well done on a deserved win. Mind you, Anthony Cunningham has got his troops frothing at the amount, and eager for battle. I feel they will be a dangerous outfit come summer. I don’t know if any of you have picked up on a characteristic of the design of the new Mayo jersey. But the lateral white stripes running through it, always reminds me of my shower doors. You get a slight melancholy vibe from looking at it. Sure maybe this affects the opposition too..
No sign of that email at this end as yet, James.
