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.


I feel your pain RJB. But even the most prosperous enterprises have occasional down turns. Trust me, looking at our modest investment portfolio, I know! Smile I miss PMs terribly too, but we'll get them back eventually.

Until then just pretend that we're all gorgeous, witty, intelligent, as well as rich and generous and go with quality this year. (Unless we can snag somebody else before morning of course.)

@Foxfyre,
I just posted another ad. Everybody bump it now and then for the next two or three hours and maybe we'll get RJB his 20th participant. He's such a great guy to help us have fun, we can help him out here.

@Foxfyre,

Whew. It was disappointing that JPB can't play this year. But I don't think we can fly at all without RJB Smile

Well anybody who comes in, please check to see where the new "ad" is in the queue and bump it to the top for another hour or two. I'll try to check in too, but I've got some work I just have to get done before morning.

Oh the title of it is: ATTENTION A2K FOOTBALL FANS - LOOK INSIDE - the bumps will also give it more thumbs up to make it look maybe interesting.

Sweet. Welcome to Mysteryman and Maporsche who become players #20 and 21. Maporsche proves that he belongs here by making the incorrect pick in the game already played. That is cool!

@realjohnboy,
The PorscheMan is showing the courage of his convictions.

Much like the hopeful giant-slayer.

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.

Thursday:
Washington Redskins @ NY Giants - Too late for this one, but pick the rest.
Sunday:
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
Monday:
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.
