    Ugh, really sorry guys - I'm on vacation this week, and was exceptionally busy yesterday. I proposed to my girlfriend (she said 'yes'!) and the rest of the day was pretty crazy.

    I'll see if I can open another league for everyone who missed out on the initial signup. If Yahoo will let everyone participate in Week 1 even after the TNF game, we should be good. Stay tuned!

    I suspect that Yahoo will still let people in to the existing league, so unless anybody who didn't get in was planning to pick last night's game, there shouldn't be any need for a new league.

    I forgot to make my pick... I thought i did but i guess i made it for a different survivor league i'm in.
    Is there a way to submit a pick for either of the remaining games? If not I guess I'm the first one eliminated lol

    Sorry man, I wish I could make an exception, but I don't want to set a precedent and have to track "falsely" eliminated teams' MNF picks all season. Hope you understand!

    What an ass pucker first week! So close to thinning the herd with a Seattle lost. But we can't win them all.....

    Dave,

    For some reason my name is showing up twice. The one that picked GB was the one i thought i am playing. I think i tried to log in a while back with a different email address.

    Not sure if you can delete the other one.

    Final count for teams in the pool = 55

    The same as the last two seasons, the top 15% of the pool will win beer (Top 8 survivors) and also will not be required to ship. That means 47 boxes will go out once this all wraps up.

    Prizes:
    1st - 12 boxes
    2nd - 10
    3rd - 8
    4th - 6
    5th - 5
    6th - 3
    7th - 2
    8th - 1

    Once the pool is finished, I will assign senders based on geography - the idea being to not have anyone receive a box from their local distro.

    Boxes must be shipped in a timely manner, with flexibility obviously allowed for real-life commitments, weather restrictions, and beer release schedules. Let's try to keep it within 2-3 weeks of when I send out targets.

    What is the buy-in?
    Minimum 72oz / Suggested maximum 150oz of good quality beer + 1 NFL "swag" item. That's a range of 6x 12oz cans, up to 6x 750ml bombers.

    "Good quality" is subjective, but a good rule of thumb is "Send a box that you'd be excited to receive". While brewery-only or limited release are certainly welcome (build up that beer karma!), they are by no means required to be part of your box. At the very least, try to hit Wants, Should have been Wants, and out of distro stuff for your target. Lastly, IPA's are better FRESH - please don't send 2+ month old hops.

    Contingencies:
    1. In the event that enough players get eliminated in a single week that there is no definite "Top 8" finisher (i.e. 6 of the 10 remaining teams get knocked out the same week), those eliminated players will continue to pick via PM here, vying for the #5, #6, #7, and #8 spots. I will collect those PM's and post in the thread on Sunday. Those players will continue to follow the pool rules, so any team they previously selected will be unavailable to them in the "tiebreaker overtime".
    2. In the event that multiple "Top 8" players get eliminated in the same week (i.e. 3 of the 7 remaining teams get knocked out in the same week), those teams will evenly split the boxes to be won. In the example above, #5, #6, and #7 win a total of 10 boxes - each finisher would receive 3, with the extra box being assigned via random number generator.
    3. Any other situations that arise will be addressed in the most fair manner that I can come up with. I'm sure I can't please everyone, but will do the best I can.
    Cheers!

    My first ever survivor pool. And the only thing I like more than money is beer! Got lucky with week 1 chalk and now I'm scared to death.

    Houston in Week 1, Jets in Week 2... I can't tell if you've got a death wish or you're just ballsy as fuck, and playing on a completely different plane than the rest of us.

    The DET game was brutal. How many TD's did they have reversed again? 3? 4?

    Good luck to everyone smart enough not to take Seattle
