    Ok, so I have an idea. Since we all suck (except @katznotdogs ). Thoughts on hitting the reset button, and starting new?

    So lets do this. If you are willing to send a box to @katznotdogs , LIKE this post. And if I can get at least 14 (what I proposed to send to 1st place, (hopefully more)) BA's willing to ship to katz now and Possibly (if you dont place top 10) again at the end of the year. Then we will just pretend these first 2 weeks didn't happen, haha.

    I know this BIF was never intended to require everyone to ship twice. But I never could have predicted that 58 entries would be eliminated in week 2 !!!!

    I'm in - any reason to get the memory of this pool in the past is fine by me.

    Is @katznotdogs going to play round 2. Maybe not eligible to win, but at least can have fun...

    Thanks guys. Definitely the wildest survivor league I've ever been apart of! I would love to play again in round two, regardless of whether or not I'm eligible to place. And you best believe I'd still be in it to win it...

    My personal opinion, he should be able to win. In our mlb 13 run bif we never said someone couldn't win both rounds ?
    Yes. Just a total reset. Haha

    So far we have 10-ish people volunteered to ship to Katz. I think we can get at least 4 more tomorrow. So tomorrow I will go ahead and reset our original league and everyone can make their new selection. Sorry for the confusion.

    I'm confused. Doesn't everyone have to ship to him?

    On another note, every survival league is a pure bloodbath. I have another $10 league with 86 players and there is only 3 left. Craziness!

    I also think he should be eligible to win again if we're letting everyone back in.

    So I would love if everyone would ship to him... I think it would be HILARIOUS for him to tell his wife that he has 65 boxes of beer coming.
    But... I'm sure some people will think that its not fair that they didn't have a shot at places 2-10. So as long as we can get 14 people to ship to him, which we should be able to. Then we just start over.

    Ok, the original league has been reset. You can make your pick for week 3. Everyone is back in. And you can pick the Saints/Dolphins/Ravens again if you wish !!!

    I'll send a box to Katz. Then. Let's start again. As for the comment about him not winning, that was when past deux was fit places 2 to 10. All good now!

    I will be sending a new message to everyone who has volunteered to ship to Katz. And in that message, he can give his address, style preferences. And whether or not he wants a picture of rex ryans wifes foot as a swag item.

    I'm in for sending 2 boxes and resetting the league. Just need to know which NFL team swag @katznotdogs wants.

    Sidebar: I'm in a $25 survivor pool with just under 700 entries. Around $17K for the winner. Going into week 3 there are under 50 left. Crazy!

    I see that too. I'm guessing/wondering if they were 'out' for the second round of games. I'm guessing even if not, they are now, ha

    For the life of me, I can't understand why people got all weird about it and said they were out. There were originally supposed to be 10 spots paid. Since people volunteered to send Katz his winnings, it made sense to start the pool over. All those people who said they were out were still eligible for 2nd-10th place. So what happens now that people are out? I'm guessing # of winning spots and boxes to each winner may need to be adjusted.

    There were folks like me who were travelling and not really paying attention to the BM who made their pick in the 'Deux' pool. Not sure how many, but i replied to the BM earlier (after games started and i went in to check who everyone else had picked) and @dannyfayy me tioned he'd edit my pick later... may e that's what happened to more people?

    @richkrull I know who you are referring to, he choose to not partake in the "reset". I assigned him to ship to Katz, and someone else took his spot as the 66th participant. So all payouts should remain the same. There hasn't been anyone else who chose to not participate In the reset, that I know of.

    I think a lot of people that showed "not picking a team" made their choice on Tuesday under "part deux". And just never logged back on. As @HoppySeb mentioned. I will adjust those choices. And those members will receive a message tomorrow. Just reminding them to make their choices under the original survivor pool. And I will go in "part deux" and remove everyone.

    2 points, just for complete clarity once again since there seems to be a number of people who didn't see previous posts in this thread.

    1. Since we did a reset, you CAN use the two teams you selected in weeks one and two once again going forward.
    2. We are using the ORIGINAL league site for making/tracking picks as it has been reset. Please ignore the Part Deaux league.

    Thanks John
    Yes. You CAN use the teams you used in the first 2 weeks (who wants the Saints ??? What a dumpster fire !!).
    And yes.. we are back to the original league site. Part Duex will soon be deleted (or I will just kick everyone out of it).

    2 Quick notes. Some people were traveling and never saw the new post that we were back to the original site. Those BA's are: @HoppySeb, @funhog, and @HopDropTheElder . They did make picks on the "Part duex" site, and those 3 were all correct. I have re-invited them to the new site. And asked they use "ba_name2." Just so everyone is aware, and I don't get a ton of messages saying "he was already eliminated." It'll be an honor system going forward for them to not select the same team (funhog and Hopdroptheelder had Seattle, and Hoppyseb had Carolina).

    As for the others who didn't select on either of the sites. Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do at this point. I sent mass BM's (rather than tagging everyone) to everyone so they would at least get a notification via email.

    I guess I should have made sure my new plan to add them to our league worked first before I posted that.

    Scratch this previous post. Those 3 members cannot join the original group since the season has started. So they will continue to pick in "part deux". And I will post their picks on here for everyone to see. #firethecommissioner!!

    What happens if someone wins part duex league but the other is still going? Will it still allow them to continue to make picks?
