    It is funny. Of all the insane places I've seen this game run - this board activated an unused rule.

    Chart. btw, there is a cool prize for second place too.

  • So, mpc did not pick, so out.

    Seattle, Tampa and Denver all won: so off you four go to pick in the play-offs. Good luck! :irishdrinkers:

    To clarify: you still cannot pick any team you have picked this year.

  • What happens when you're out of teams that you haven't previously used? Are you done?

    I can only go with Houston through the playoffs.. Can't see that being a winning strategy..

    You are done, unless all of your opponent's have the same problem -

    Rules are in Post #2, but as a reminder: The game plays to a winner in both rounds. If we get to the play-offs and you have no play-off teams to pick, but your opponents(s) have them available, that counts as a loss for you. If we get to the play-offs and no one has any teams available to pick, we'll reset to the play-off teams. Your opponents are those in the same round as you.

    I think you have two teams that you haven't picked, Houston and Miami. As it stands now, Nate has the best chance of winning because he left, what I assume was, his ultimate Superbowl match up prediction intact for the post season. KC vs Dal.


    Possible picks left for each player barring activation of the reset rule

    BSD - Giants and Packers (no additional divisional teams)
    London - Texans and Dolphins (no additional divisional teams)
    Nate - Giants and Texans (also Chiefs and Cowboys in divisional)
    Rob - Packers (no additional divisional teams)

    Very true! Thanks for pointing that out and thanks again Alice for the reminder. I didn't think this would still be going into the playoffs so didn't think that far ahead. Also even if I did win, I wouldn't like to accept any physical prize all the way over this side of the pond.

    I'll continue with Houston though I think, Brock > Oakland's third string Surely?

    If you win, you get your prize even on the other side of the pond. I can always just wait until the next Rams game and mail it from London, you know. :D

  • I want to take the Giants but strategically I'm better off picking Houston as they won't be winning another game should they win. However I would pick the Giants against Dallas should they win. So I'm better off leaving them for next week.
    I really don't have much confidence in the Texans but the Raiders are starting a rookie QB, on the road, in the playoffs, and in his first game.
    I'll go with Houston.

  • At this point, doesn't really matter if it's Giants or Packers. The Houston win eliminates Rob and me.

    Barring a miracle from the Dolphins today, we will have a winner today.

    I was wondering this, but haven't had time to look it up.

    So, if Steelers win - one player has no more picks is what I think you are saying.

    ----

    This game doesn't normally get to the play-offs. I was wondering randomly if the players who do make it to the play-offs deserve to have the team picks re-set, or if it is part of the in season strategy to keep play-off teams for this exact scenario.

    Because this year so many players picked against the Browns, we have a lot of play-off players left (not only this game).

    First time I've wondered this. Comments welcome. I can re-set rules for next year.

  • Overall tho, a winner this week would be great!

    And, it matches the rules laid out from the start - you need to keep play-off teams available in case you make it that far.

  • I like the rule of no playoff reset. It has a huge effect on the regular season picks, and Nate should be rewarded for the gamble of saving those teams until the playoffs. I waited too late to start saving some picks, and it will cost me.

    If Pittsburgh and GreenBay win today, we will all survive until next week, but only Nate will have any teams left to choose from.

    If Miami wins then Nate and London will have picks available next week.

    Then again, if I read the rules right, if the survivor(s) with teams left pick a loser we all lose that week so perhaps we all survive until he picks a winner or runs out of teams.

    Not sure how that works

  • If I'm reading the rules correctly, Nate needs his pick to win this week to knock the rest of us off.

    Rules state that if you have no team remaining to pick, that counts as a loss. So everyone but Nate is guaranteed a loss this week.

    If his pick loses, we activate the "everyone loses in a given week" rule for the second time this season.

    That means everyone survives for another week.

    That happens every week until Nate either picks a winner, or runs out of teams.

    If he runs out of teams, then we all have run out of teams and the game resets.

  • Thanks for the input, all.

    I don't normally fall out as early as I did this year. I do know that I make my picks with play-offs as a distant fact if it get that far, and it's part of the in season game.

    So, we will keep the rules as they are.

    That said, I need to go see what happened with you all. We might have a winner. I believe in setting up rules to follow, so let me see how the rules apply to this game now.

    Ok, the rules are pretty clear in my mind. I tried to state them as fact in Post #2, so that everyone is fairly playing by stated rules.

    This post makes me wonder. We are going to follow whatever I stated as rules.

    You little sweeties are requiring me to do like math or something. Good job. :179417:

  • Nate wins.

    All four of you picked a winning team this week, but Nate is the only one able to even choose a team this next week, he has both KC and Dallas available.

    No one else even has a team left to pick.

    To quote the rules in post #2:

    If you make it to the play-offs and don’t have any play-off teams to pick, that is a loss.

    So, since Nate is the only player left with a team to pick, he wins.

    ----

    To clarify - no one else can even make a pick. Nate wins by simple strategy of having teams to pick.

    I do see the concept of Nate picking a team and losing. But, in my reading of the rules, players with no team to pick are out.

    :179417: :179417: :179417: to you all. Leave it to Hawk fans to make me think about the rules.


    Loves! And, Congrats Nate.
