Survivor Pool?

Talk about the AFC, NFC, the NFL Draft, College Football... anything football that has no Washington Redskin relevance.

You pick the winner of one game each week - no point spreads involved. Your pick must win or you are done. You may only use a team once. Thus, if you pick the Saints and they win - you survive. However, you can never pick the Saints again.

Last survivor wins.

I've made my pick. We currently have 4 players.


We currently have 6 registered players and 3 of them have posted their Week 1 pick. I'm NOT going to check here then do it for you.

Please make sure you enter your pick at cbs.

BTW:

All Games will lock five minutes before the start of the week's first game. If a member does not make their selection prior to this deadline, that user will receive an incorrect pick for the week and be eliminated.

Please Note - All selections by pool members will be displayed in the view all picks area once this lock occurs.

Also, the rule that you can only use a team once is standard but I don't see it on the site.

Nevertheless, you can't use a team more than once and I will enforce it.

Made my pick. It is hardest in week 1 since you really don't know which teams take a step forward, back, to the side, etc.

I tried to join, but it won't let me make a pick. I wasn't planning to pick yesterday's game, but I thought I had until Sunday. Seems pretty stupid, but it is what it is. My regular survivor pool just doesn't let you pick a game more than an hour before it starts. It doesn't lock the week at the first game.

It's all right with me. But I'll enter picks if I'm allowed to.

You picked the Bears in the other thread long before the deadline, so I'm OK if they want to honor that and let you in, but Darth responded to you with a couple of posts to get into the league he set up, and then posted the rules as well, so I'm OK with them not allowing you in too. :lol:

Either way works, I'll assume I'm out unless I hear otherwise.
