Note that the last time we held this game, during the 2019-2020 season (we did not hold it last year), there were not one, not two, but three players who submitted invalid picks that first weekend.

They didn't understand the rules. They didn't submit a pick for the pointspread winner AND for the Over/Under winner, for each game.

They were allowed to continue playing for the remaining weeks... but they were already ineligible for the Mr. Average (which we had that year) and the You Suck prize.

So let me point out and clarify... you are picking both the pointspread winner AND the Over/Under winner... for each and every postseason game.

This year, because of the new playoff format, 50 total points will be possible. (12+12+8+8+10=50)

Prior Winners:

2016 - FourFaceFive
2017 - Scottimus1 and WizardofNothing
2018 - GWAE and JohnnyQ
2019 - Not Held
2020 - kuma and Joeman
2021 - Not Held
2022 - ???

Vegasbrent is in.

Without knowing if any other new joiners who have not previously posted are even different individual people, VegasBrent will be the final entrant that is permitted with a join date AFTER 12/12/2021 and fewer than five posts. All new participants will need to have a join date prior to that date and at least five posts all made prior to today.

The March Madness contest will likely have a similar stipulation, so if any readers who have not previously created accounts (or who have and have not yet posted) would do well to post a little bit.

I actually usually have a stipulation along these lines and just forgot to do it. That said, those to already throw their hat in are welcome to participate and will receive the reminder to make Picks whenever I send that.

Hi Buzz,
I believe you only wanted this sock to persist to enable you to honour a wager.
And now, you have given a means for whoever you owe, to get in contact with you. Very honourable.

Having done that, I see no reason to let this user ID persist, but I WILL allow the post to persist.
I'll also repeat your info, as a courtesy...

Creditors of this member should email him at " buzzpaff dot gmail dot com"
Beware. The earth is NOT flat. Hit and run is not a winning strategy: Pressing into trends IS not a winning strategy: Progressives are not a winning strategy: Don't Buy It! .Don't even take it for free.

Greetings!

I have sent a PM to Buzz and gave him my Paypal to send the $25 Entry Fee to. I will make sure that gets forwarded along with other funds I am taking care of when I do everything next week.

Greetings!

The Playoff Lines are as follows for the Wildcard Round:

Raiders (+5.5) @ Bengals (-5.5) O/U 49
Patriots (+4) @ Bills (-4) O/U 44
Eagles (+8.5) @ Buccaneers (-8.5) O/U 46
49ers (+3) @ Cowboys (-3) O/U 51
Steelers (+12.5) @ Chiefs (-12.5) O/U 46.5
Cardinals (+4) @ Rams (-4) O/U 49.5

I know EdCollins already said this, but I would like to remind all participants that you MUST pick every point spread and you MUST pick every game total.

That failing, you will not be disqualified, but you will take a loss for each line that you don't pick. In total, you should be making twelve Picks this week and it would be VERY MUCH PREFERRED if each individual pick appears on a separate line. An example set of picks (Taking Away Team and Over Just for Example) might appear:

Raiders +5.5
Raiders OVER 49
Patriots +4
Patriots OVER 44
Eagles + 8.5
Eagles OVER 46
49ers +3
49ers OVER 51
Steelers +12.5
Steelers OVER 46.5
Cardinals +4
Cardinals OVER 49.5

There are no confidence picks in the playoff game.
