Welcome to Round Two of Waking The Red Prediction League!
I think it’s fair to say Toronto FC opened up their campaign with a better than expected result—a nervy 1-1 draw away on Mexican soil. But for four of our competitors, it was exactly as expected.
Curtis Gergley-Garner, Just a TFC Fan, TTTYYZ and some guy named Michael Singh all posted a 1-1 prediction and find themselves atop the WTR PL table after Round One.
If you want to check your progress, you can follow this handy document below.
Enough with the back-patting! For TFC, the job is only half done (or hopefully, 1/8th done).
And for you, the job has just begun. Time to rack up some more points tonight in Round 2!
The more accurate your predictions, the more points you will earn in the league standings, that we will update and keep track of. The winner of the 2021 Waking The Red Prediction League will also receive a small prize, likely related to Toronto FC.
The point system for the 2021 season will be as follows:
- 2 points for guessing the correct result (Win, Loss, or Draw)
- 1 point for guessing the amount of Toronto FC goals scored
- 1 point for guessing the amount of Toronto FC goals conceded
A perfect game prediction will yield a massive 4 points—and there will be a 5th point available each match for the bonus question!
Tonight’s bonus question is a tale as old as time...
Who opens the scoring tonight?
Pick Toronto and get a bonus point.
Pick León and get a bonus point.
If you pick nil-nil and it happens, I think you (and TFC) will have survived 90+ minutes of squeaky bum time and you deserve a second bonus point (and a total of 6 on the day).
I hope everyone enjoys their less-than-productive day, because tonight it’s a Champions League Evening. One that must be savoured.
