The first gtpdd contest is in the books! We’ve already passed last year’s number of total participants! In just week one, we had 27 entries in the contest. The Bulldogs beat the Demons on the field, but how did everyone perform off the field?
The big winner of week one is gtpdd’s own Daniel Spencer, who started off hot with 18 points (out of a total 25). Obvious troll Poopface actually scored 4 points which is good enough for second worst!
