@Miz Cowdoc,
No, I picked those and so did whatshisname (kidding, but his new name is a transfer flip of the old one, so I'll just call him soylent). Well, Koylo.

Long may the triumvirate reign.

Two players who are not on A2K have made their picks.
ANDYD choses...
Cincinnati
Indianapolis
Minnesota
Washington

JEREMY/SOUPKITCHEN selects...
Houston
Indianapolis
Green Bay
Seattle

17 players are in so far. By my count, 10 of us pick Houston while 7 go with
Cincinnati; 9 select Baltimore and 8 vote for Indianapolis; Green Bay gets the nod over Minnesota 13-4 and 9 go for Seattle vs 8 for Washington.
George and I seem to have a discrepancy regarding Minn-GB. Maybe not.

We favor the home teams by a margin of 40-28.

So far we've got 10 of the 16 different permutations covered. Houston/Baltimore/Green Bay/Seattle gets 4 votes.

@realjohnboy,
Wow! I like the courage by AndyD to take all underdogs!....Go big or go home right?

I am still thinking about my Baltimore pick over Indy...I think that is the hardest one to pick...

Well...um...gee...I guess I should see what you all think about the rules here.
In past years the games in the Wild Card weekend were sort of "practice" picks. Players could keep any points scored but would not be wedded to teams in this weekend's games. My thinking is that new players could still join in for the better part of a month with one set of picks.
It matters not to me...or Andy.

@realjohnboy,
From my POV, the more inclusive, the better. Non-wedded picks works for me.

However, I can also support the possibility where you pick the final 4 in advance (with SB winner).

@realjohnboy,
I am not sure I understood what you meant...The picks we made this week are not teams we have to auto take next week correct?

I guess I do not understand what you meant by "wedded"....Or stuck with a team? I was thinking we pick these 4...then next week pick the next set of 4 we think will win....And then we have to chose carefully because we have to predict who will go all the way?

@XXSpadeMasterXX,
It is closer to your second paragraph. The idea is we would welcome new players even after this weekend. But that would really disadvantage someone who picked a whole bunch of Wild Card upsets...and was wrong.

@realjohnboy,
I got you now...thanx...so how would they get points for this week to even have a chance to win? They would not mind and are just getting in later to have some fun?

Or wedded picks means they get consensus picks?

It has been my experience that no one really cares. But since you ask, a correct pick in the WC games is worth 1 pt. I was figuring 2 pts in the next round; 4 in the next and 6 pts in the Superbowl.
I've asked for suggestions in the past. Silence.

@realjohnboy,
I think it is a cool idea...But I am not sure it would make a difference in all honesty...Because if someone gets the superbowl pick correct, chances are they are going to win anyways...Or if 2 people do...One will have one less pick correct from the previous weeks....

Because after this one week...Only around 4 people will have a perfect score...just by probability with 16 people with 4 picks each....

Then it will drop off after the next week again...

Till only one has a perfect or one or 2 wrong...

It would only make a difference if you had like 30 or 40 people in...

But it is cool if you do that...because then it is almost impossible to have a tie...

Go for it!

@realjohnboy,
Sorry, my math is off I think...Because I am very tired right now...But I think you got me....After the second week or one game in the third....Someone should be out front by a bit....because of all the random combinations...people will drop off...unless a few pick the same teams for 2 weeks and all win...

I would say do it mate...Sounds good to me...It only kills the chances of ties...it can't increase them...

For this kind of online game, I like the scoring used. Keeps the whole thing simple and democratic. If some kind of point spread was used, I know I'd stay away. I'm not that interested in that much effort.

I appreciate the system you borrowed or built for us Johnboy. Smile

@tsarstepan,
Am I misinterpreting you? Did Johnboy suggest anything about using a spread? I didn't get that at all. Perhaps you're instead referring to suggestions made by some earlier posts by the now-silent minority (of one)? I never liked contests involving the spread.
