Quote:beachbumbabsI don't understand this sentence.

Default Picks are limited to selecting sixteen NFL Teams and your picks will automatically be those teams in the order listed GAME TOTAL-OVER picks.

Can you be a bit more detailed, perhaps with an example, please?

Even including bye weeks and Thursday/Saturday games, if you provide a list of sixteen different teams, at least five of those teams will be playing a team other than each other. Starting from the top of your list, the default picks will be each team taking the OVER on total points scored. If two of those teams are playing one another, the second one listed will be skipped.

For example, if your list went:

Steelers

Patriots

Rams

Colts

Chargers

Falcons

Titans

Bills

Dolphins

Eagles

49ers

Seahawks

Steelers

Browns

Bengals

Lions

You would be taking:

Steelers-OVER

Rams-OVER

Colts-OVER

Falcons-OVER

Titans-OVER

As your Week 1 picks.

Are we required to pick six every week we enter? Can I still pick only four or five if I so choose? Understand I will be ineligible for the perfection prize of the week.

Quote:IndyJeffreyThe winner has the highest winning percentage, assuming s/he missed no more than two weeks. Agree?

Guess I should let mission reply but...

You MUST pick 5 every week. You get to 6 by having a confidence pick which counts as 2. You do not have a confidence pick but you must always have 5 picks

That’s right! Also to the first part of IndyJeffrey’s question, the highest winning percentage is the winner no matter what, it’s just all missed weeks after the first one are 0-5 weeks.

*I haven't read the rules yet. Maybe there is no prize, but somebody will suck the most anyway

Quote:beachbumbabsI'm going to award 2 geek prizes. Most 6-0 or 5-0 weeks, and most 0-5 or 0-6 weeks, regardless of how you finish percentage-wise. I have 3 prizes to offer, so if someone thinks of a fun or unusual competition stat before week 1, let me know.

Thanks for the side games BBB! How about:

Wins/Losses closest to pi

Largest number among those with Wins-Losses = Prime

"Man out of Mac": Losing team with the exact mirror record of the contest winner. Only awarded if it is an exact mirror and not tied by another team (e.g., if the winner of the contest ends up with has a 60-29 record, the M.O.O.M award goes to the team that finishes 29-60... but only if they are the only one with that record).

Boy, I like both of pi and Man out of Mac, especially the latter! I might have to look and see if I don't have a 4th geek prize.

The ones I have at the moment are:

BB-8 warm up jacket.

2 Schrodinger's Cat mugs.

NCC-1701 wireless WiFi repeater speaker.

All new and unused in packages.

Those Charles Atlas ads were in the back of all our comic books when I was a kid. And people behaved like that, too. I always wondered whether it was a chicken-and-egg thing. As in, whether he caused bullies to act like that with those ads, or whether he was observing how people were and pitching his sales to the victims.

Miami.

Will I win this way? I read on the internet somewhere where a transvestite won many contests this way just by picking MIami. AP move.
