For the past half dozen or more years, we have had a game on A2K where we pick the winners in each week's NFL games. Kickycan started it and then I ran it except for the year JPB in Chicago took over. We had a mere 6 players or so the 1st year but got to something like 24 last year.
Most of us know nothing about football, but that was no obstacle. We had a player named Coin Toss/Coin Toss who flipped,unsurprisingly, coins.
We are ready to go for another season, set to begin in a few months. We have players from Mexico through the U.S. and Canada, and over to Europe. And we welcome new participants.
All we are missing is the NFL and the players. I don't follow it closely, but there is a labor dispute that has caused the players to go on strike or maybe the owners locked out the players.
In any event the season appears to be in doubt, although I think that both sides will come to the realization that no NFL will be bad for both sides.
Watch this space.
So, we are a month and a half on and the owner's and player's seem to have come to an agreement on how to divide the zillion dollars of
revenue. All of the fans who declared that never, never again would they watch the NFL will hear the siren song. Big guys slamming into each other once a week. Folks with Pabst Blue Ribbons sitting on couches, including me. I'll be cheering for Pittsburgh, even though I have never been there. Steelers.
Our game here on A2K consists of picking the winners in the NFL games each of the 17 or so weeks. This will be our 6th or 7th season. Sports is not at all big on A2K, so I have structured this as a very simple game where knowledge of the NFL is not at all necessary to be successful.
There is no registration required. There are some rules, but I forget what they are (which tells you something about how seriously we take this). If you might be interested, please let me know so I can assign you a column on my decidedly low-tech score card.
