Default picks needed please, for Wizard and Bruce. Also, look for defaults for Joeman.

Edit: Whoops. This is Joeman's first Skip Week, so defaults wouldn't apply.

Yeesh. How often do you get 2 pushes out of 5 picks?
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

fyi...Normally I post the updated standings just minutes after the Monday Night game. Tonight, however is our annual company Christmas party, so tonight's results will probably be a little late. :)

Quote: unJon

I am moved to add to the list of side prizes. Instead of the “closest to unJon” from last year, I would propose adding a $50 consolation prize to the person whose wins divided by losses most closely matches the Golden Ratio. Confidence picks included just as per the official calculation. This prize can not be won by someone that is already winning an official Mission prize, and in that case the prize will roll to the next closest person, etc.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but if the contest ended today, I think this would be won by JW17.

I'm channeling my inner Phil Ivey, and am offering shares in myself. I am in solo first place, running at a 75% clip. I think first place is like $800? And there is some consolation for second and third place? Anyway, I will sell the first 3 lucky bidders 20% of my winnings for $30. Looking to lock up $90 and keep a 40% interest for myself.

This was written October 1st. Curious to know if anyone took you up on this. You've been in 1st place since Week 4, with the exception of Week 8 when you dropped to 2nd place for just one week.

Two weeks ago I was 6 games above .500 and thinking I had a shot at the top. So then I went 0-12 the last two weeks, so now I am 6 games below .500. I need to zig when I should zag.

At this point I think I’m just trying to defend my Golden Ratio prize.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

Just updated the free roll thread. At this point it looks like we are going to have a playoff free roll of $400. Lets hope for a few more good weeks to get this puppy over $500

I believe that puts you in the lead for my 0-6 prize. It's something, anyway. But the season's not over.

Which two NFL teams do you think are the hardest to pick, week after week? You know -those teams that don't cover when you pick them to, and that do cover when you pick their opponents.

For me, it seems to be the Titans and the Chargers. I live in Tennessee, but I feel like I have no idea why the Titans beat some good teams as an underdog, then get crushed by other teams.

As for the Chargers, I rarely get to see them play. They have no (or very little) home field advantage and they always zig when I expect them to zag.

What are the two teams that you feel are too unpredictable to pick?
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

After last week it looked like RisingDough had the You Suck Prize all but wrapped up... but Sparty10k said, "Hold my beer" and with his 0-6 record this week, is now making it interesting again.

Mike's gonna win the Most Average Prize with his default picks. LOL. Mike hasn't picked a game since Week 9.

For the first time since Week 8, SOOPOO is not in the #1 spot. He and I both bombed this week (the Redskins didn't help us) allowing miplet to take the lead. Miplet was in 10th place just four weeks ago but has since gone 19-5.

Nice tight race at the top, you guys!

Don't discount me, Ed, I'm at 50.00% right next to the Wizard. I intend to squat right on top of it.

Looks like Sparty's gonna take the most 0-6 prize, too. We'll have to see how it comes out.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I'm super excited to see the standings after next week! I have the possibility of using a 'bye' week while miplet has already used his. I also might or might not use confidence picks depending on whether I feel I will benefit from additional variance.

I'm not feeling particularly skilled at this moment as my Colts and Bengals picks were a tad off. Brees did have one more incompletion than I did, however.

(Quote clipped, relevance)

My Observations:

1.) The game is still pretty interesting in that Wizard (.500) could technically mathematically still win whereas BBB can technically still tie. Only players below .5000 are mathematically eliminated, at this point.

2.) The Most Average Consolation Prize is as wide open as it could be. Our two, "You Suck," contenders could both run the table with Confidence Picks and finish .500, which would guarantee at least a split of the prize. On the high side, Gordonm888 can't finish .500, but could theoretically finish one game over .500, which would put him in reasonable contention.

3.) In terms of the, "You Suck," prize: The two currently at the bottom can theoretically finish .500 (assumes Confidence Picks), so anyone who can theoretically finish as bad as .500---or worse---which is everyone below GordonM888 is still technically in contention for that.

4.) In short, everyone can still win one of the main/consolation prizes, so the latter prizes are doing what was intended.

OneNickelMiracle/Prozema/Mission Trophy

As mentioned, AyeCarumba and I are the only one who can theoretically qualify and have agreed to split it already. We have continued to put in our picks before the early deadline as that is all that is needed for us to finish this thing out. I tend to think that he and I were the only two really trying to go for it, so we saw the opportunity there and pounced. I would apologize to everyone, but I did give everyone fair notice I was going after it since I can't be the main winner anyway.

At the end of the season, if anyone requests that I put in Picks submitted times for AyeCarumba, myself or both, I will be happy to oblige, but would otherwise prefer not to do that as it would be time-consuming. When I say nobody has any claim to the prize besides AyeCarumba and myself...I mean, nobody else even came close to doing the requirements. That said, if anyone requests to see the times, I'll look them up and put them.

Hmmm... Decision time... Go for the 6-0 and try to pass Mission for ONM trophy, or try to take a piece of the "AVG" prize by getting to 50/50.

As for the other side games, "Pi" was quickly out of my reach, but who's in striking distance for the "Golden Ratio"?

If I can hit 6-0 this week then I can skip the final and squat on 50% too.

The way ONM worded his initial post as relates the trophy, he said whoever does the criteria and has the, "Most wins," but then in another spot he said the, "Official records transpose," so I'm not quite sure what his intent was. If his intent was, "Most wins," you're actually ahead of me now, though you were behind when we agreed to split.

Please keep the early Picks coming, though! If I get your early picks in Week 17 early enough, I'll probably do a record-preserving skip week. If I don't get them early, I guess I'll have to make picks to make sure one of us actually WINS the prize so it doesn't automatically go to ONM.

SOOPOO is correct, games are limited to Sundays and Mondays. The only reason I deal with Sunday early games is because of Thursday Night Football and also because bye weeks take place at the same time.

As I mentioned somewhere on this thread, Sparty10k is my brother, so I guess I get the "pleasure" of handing him $25 the next time we get together for winning the "most overconfident" prize. At least I get to give it to him for a very dubious achievement!

Confidence losses do real damage to a player's win percentage. It seems more so than the boost provided by a confidence win.

I'm curious if Sparty was actually trying to make losing picks, or just fell into them.

Trying to do badly and succeeding in that , is the same thing as being good at picking.

If you are good at picking whose going to lose a game, then you also know whose going to win that game
