    I'm in as well. Was fun last year!!

    I do have a question, how are we handling tie games? Last year I was in another league and got boned on a tie...

    If the NFL game ends in a Tie, I'd assume that the players won't be eliminated because their team didn't lose, but I'd be fine either way as long as it's announced ahead of time.

    For the end of the season - let's say there's 5 entries left and they all get knocked out on the same week? I'd be fine with splitting the pot equally, or allowing those teams to continue since there wasn't a single winner.

    I agree, as long as I know about the tie thing, cool. Last year was in a big money one, had a tie. Guy who ran the league goes, "Well both guys who picked the tie game lose". I was like, wait, hold the phone guy, where does it say that. He was like well you didn't win your pick so you lose. Basically was up to his discretion. I have been on other leagues and as with baseball, a tie goes to the runner. :grinning:

    This is not baseball. It's not even a sport, really. The objective is to pick the winner, not to avoid picking the loser. If you ask me pick a tie and and you're out. But I don't make the rules...

    Can I use a hockey comparison then? :wink:

    I can see where your coming from and I will be ok with it if that is the rule upfront. Long as I know, you won't get any complaints from me.

    The yahoo description reads "Pick a different winner of one pro football game each week. Win, and live to pick again."
    Based on this, my vote is that you must choose a team that wins.

    Sounds good!

    How do you feel about the scenario where all remaining teams are eliminated on the same week? Will the bounty be split equally, should we have some sort of tiebreaker, or will the last group of eliminated teams return to the pool? Along the same lines, since we do payouts for the top 7 finishers, what if there are 10 entries left, and 6 get eliminated on the same game? Technically 3 of them should get paid out per the 54-entry field breakdown in your original post.

    So, assuming we pay out top 7 (I'd like to pay out more, but we will see how many people enter). If all 7 teams are eliminated, then they would all return, because... NOBODY likes ties... haha.
    ALSO, at some point, not sure when. Could be week 8, could be week 11. In order to have a winner determined by the beginning of December-ish, so all boxes can be shipped before New Years (ish). We will start to choose 2 winners. Now last year, I think they only did this to decide the #1 and #2 tiebreaker. But, like I said, we will see how many BA's join, and how things go. All it takes is 1 big upset to cut the field in half.

    If we pay out top 7, and 6 of 10 get eliminated. Then those 6 will continue to determine the 5th, 6th, 7th positions. This will be done through messages on BA. And I will post the picks on Sunday.

    Uh-oh. That is the only thing I know to be absolutely, unequivocally true in the NFL. And the universe. But I may be a tad biased, I suppose.

    40 signed up so far.

    Doesn't seem to be any restrictions on who can join - lack of trades / BIF's / LIF's or time on the site... have there been issues with people not sending boxes in the past?

    I don't remember any issues last year. Once the league is over, and everyone has been assigned someone to ship to. I will set a "ship by date." Hopefully everyone will have shipped by then. If not and they haven't been in contact with me, or the winner, then we will take action with the mods and or start a bad trader thread.
