The inabilty to pm folks really crimps my style, Fox. 19 players is fine, but for me, growing the game has been part of my mission from when this stupid game started 5 years ago. That makes no sense, does it? Kind of obtuse.
oops, you're right. Intially, I'm wrong.
Less then 2 hours to go before Sunday's 1st game. We are up to 21 players but can certainly handle more. Please consider joining us!
YES! We are back for our Vth season of this game, run here by idiots for the entertainment of folks who don't know one end of a football from the other. The 1st year we had 6 players and then 12 in the 2nd and it has grown and grown.
The idea is that when the folks around the water cooler talk about the games on Sunday, you -yes, you- can say something like "How about them Bears?'
Here is how it works. Each week a schedule will be posted of the games. It will look like this:
Washington Redskins @ NY Giants
Detroit @ Atlanta
and on for as many as 16 games.
All you have to do is pick the winning team in each game by posting here.
You might say Washington, Atlanta, etc. down through the list. If you know the NFL, that is fine, but there are some folks here who in the past have made choices based on some rather bizarre criteria. They have done quite well based on the cutest cheerleaders or the cuter quarterback. Or numerology, whatever that is.
There are some rules, but we tend to make them up as we go along. I will explain some of them later.
WATCH THIS SPACE FOR WEEK #1.
Here is the schedule for week #1
Washington Redskins @ NY Giants - Too late for this one, but pick the rest.
Detroit Lions @ Atlanta Falcons
Seattle Seahawks @ Buffalo Bills
Jacksonville Jaguars @ Tennessee Titans
NY Jets @ Miami Dolphins
Kansas City Chiefs @ New England Patriots
Tampa Bay Bucaneers @ New Orleans Saints
St Louis Ravens (or something) @ Philadelphia Eagles
Houston Texans @ PITTSBURGH STEELERS
Cincinnati (whatevers) @ Baltimore (are they the Ravens)
Carolina Panthers @ San Diego Chargers
Arizona Razorbacks @ San Francisco 49er's
Dallas Cowboys @ Cleveland Browns
Chicago Bears @ Indianapolis Colts
Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers
Denver Broncos @ Oakland Raiders
All you need to do, which will take all of V minutes, is to list the teams you think will win.
But, as a needed tie-breaker, you need to suggest a score for the last game.
So, you might say, Washington, Atlanta...ending with Denver (14-13).
Pretty simple, huh?
Some pretty amusing writing goes on in the interim betwixt folks here on A2K you may not typically interact with. That's the idea. Welcome.
