I hope to be back for the playoffs.
Ah yes. The playoffs. They start this weekend with the Wild Card games. I did some research on how we played it last year.
First, I see that I started a new thread called something like "The Road To The Super Bowl." The hook I used was that folks who care not a wit about the NFL would not have to stand around the water cooler with a shiteating, frozen smile for the next month. Rather they could say "I have Y and Z fighting it out at the end."
Several players from there ended up joining us on this thread the following year. So it is sort of a farm club. I also note that there have been over 25,000 views of the "Pick-Um" game. That stuns me. 24 players minus Rhys, AndyClubber (not on A2K) equals almost 1,200 views, on average, for each of us over 17 weeks. I can't understand that.
Anyway, I need some help in understanding the play off process. As I see it A & B and C & D will play in the AFC. If A & C win, they will face either E or F, with the match ups being determined (A and C facing either E or F) based on some criteria involving A and C's records.
As I recall, we invited players to "warm up" with meaningless picks in the Wild Card games. And then, I say then, by the next weekend, players would pick all the way through to the end in one sitting.
Any clarification would be appreciated and, if anyone is interested in running aspects of this, please raise your hand(s). Duties can be divided.
