Excuse me, I should also mention all players listed in the second post will receive reminders on Friday.

If you decide to play and are not listed, then you may simply PM me Picks before any games kick off as long as you have a Joined Date on or before 12/12/2021 AND have at least five lifetime posts all made before today.

ADDED: If there are any procedural questions or questions needed for rule clarification, this would be an excellent time to ask.

APOLOGIES FOR THE GRATUITOUS REPOST, BUT I DIDN'T WANT THE FIRST SET OF LINES AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE:

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.

I'm afraid you do not qualify in either posts or joined date. Make a few more posts and you will be able to play the March Madness contest when it comes around.

Welcome to the forum, Eric! I apologize, but I was not aware about these rules. Please stick around while I try to plead your case.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

EricGarthwaite is in as he is known to the Wizard. Anyone else who is known to the Wizard (or any longtime participant) will be permitted to enter regardless of Join Date or number of posts if I can verify them to my satisfaction. People who qualify as longtime participants is a judgment that will be made in my sole discretion on a case-by-case basis.

The main reason for the Join Date and # of Posts requirements (which I usually do have and just forgot to put this time) is that I don't want any of the Trolls from other sites creating a bunch of BS accounts with BS IP's and stacking up entries that are all actually the same individual person.

I also apologize to Eric for any inconvenience.

I am looking at the rules and I donít see mention of the pick deadline. Did I miss it? Is it just before the first game kickoff for that weekend?

That's correct. It might not be ideal, but with Saturday games, there's already a small enough window to make picks.

Reminders to go out within the next hour or two.

Added: I should be available to get the Picks up within minutes of the first game kicking off. I'm making mine this evening and will not change them, so I will be able to open and compile picks thereafter as they come in.

My picks are made and reminders are out, so I'm going to compile all of the Picks already received around noon tomorrow and wait for the others.

Picks will be posted within minutes of kickoff, or perhaps even before, if everyone on the, 'Wants to play,' list makes them.
