If fantasy football, March Madness and reality TV had a love child – its name would be Bracketology. You can join a community with fellow TV lovers, or create one and compete against your friends, family, and coworkers. Choose between multiple game types from March Madness-like brackets (First Impression) to pick ’em leagues where you predict who you think will advance at each elimination ceremony (Week to Week and Confidence Pool) to fantasy football style (Advanced) games. Throughout the season, leagues are automatically scored, and winners can earn prizes and/or bragging rights, depending on the league they choose.
To avoid missing picks, make sure to subscribe to our emails for Pick Reminders and Scoring Recaps by clicking the “Keep me updated” checkbox on your profile. But, we know life can get hectic sometimes, so each Commissioner has a tool to unlock picks for the episode/ceremony in question to allow for late or unsaved picks. The Commissioner should navigate to the ceremony/episode and click “Open Picks,” which will allow for all picks for that ceremony/episode to be edited. Just make sure the Commissioner clicks “Close Picks” once complete. Reach out to your Commissioner if you were unable to make picks, but beware, not all Commissioners will allow for picks to be modified after they lock each week.
With the development (and resulting importance) of communities, we wanted to make it difficult to delete in case it was accidentally erased, causing the deletion of multiple leagues within it and many unhappy users. You can delete your community if you are the only member of it. If there is anyone else in your community, you’ll be required to assign another member as the sole community Commissioner before deleting your account. Additionally, you have the ability to assign one/many community Co-Commissioner(s) if you just need help managing the community/leagues/members in it. Simply go to the Members page within the community, click the 3 dots next to the member you want to promote, and click “Add Co-Commissioner.” You can remove Co-Commissioner permissions at any point, and don’t worry, Co-Commissioners won’t be able to add/remove other Co-Commissioners and most importantly won’t be able to remove you as Commissioner.
Bracketology is not a gambling site. You can, however, win prizes by participating in leagues that offer gifts to the winner(s) (Sponsored Leagues, Officially Bracketology Leagues, etc.).
