Ok, here's your big chance, Edge! Pick a winner, and when SF gets beat by the Bills, you can go home a hero with the coveted Nicky Trophy!

(Or, you guys can all keep picking the same teams, and possibly have this go on forever, or all go home losers).

Although I really hate to say it...excellent pick, and the one I probably would have chosen.

As organizer and rule maker, I am implementing a new rule...

I WIN!!!

Er.... Once it gets down to only two players left, if they both pick the same team, the player to post first wins (assuming that team wins). That will keep johnny-come-lately from copycatting the first poster and dragging this out for weeks on end.

Well, I disagree with that rule. I don't check the forum every day and every hour for your post!

I suggest PMing you when it gets down to the final two.

I would suggest changing that a little. If the final two players pick the same team, that pick is discarded and both players choose again. Repeat until they have different teams. Discarded picks cannot be chosen again in the current week, but don't count against disallowed teams in future weeks.

Or, it could be simplified even more. Once it's down to the last 2 or 3 guys, it could be a strict rule that you can't pick the same team, period. (Easy enough, looking at who posted first, and/or the time stamps).
But rockotman is the boss on this one, and he can do whatever he wants. (Including adjusting the results so I win every year).

I disagree with the last two posts:
a) players shouldn't discard posts because they happen to be the same
b) there should not be any restriction on picks either, aside from not being able to re-use one
What if the scenario happens late, and they both used up most of their picks?

My opinion is that PM-ing picks would be the best option.

Alternatively, we could start the 2nd poll now, so we wouldn't to worry much about those still alive in the 1st one.

This suggestion isn't bad. With one exception. Let's just declare Edge the winner in this one. (The other poll would be over). Since he at least picked a different team, he deserves the win.
And we'll move on to the second chance poll.

Geez, what a bunch of whiny little bastages!

I don't like the PM idea at all, so that ain't happening. Capiche?

But I kind of like footballdude See Profile's idea.

So when it gets down to two remaining players, if they both want to pick the same team, then that pick gets eliminated for the week, and the two pick again...

and again...

and again...

and again...

If after four picks, they each have the same selections, then they post a point total for the game.

If that number is the same, them screw 'em. There is no winner, and they can be ostracized by the rest of yin'z for being pricks.

Read again, buckwheat... if they pick the same game, then they have to pick again... THAT SAME WEEK. Not week after week. If they pick the same four teams consecutively in that week, then they have to post a point total.

Maybe it wasn't clear above, but I hope it is now.

Yin's summsabitches keep this up, and I'll just give the trophy to EL for the hell of it. Then you'll have to listen to him gloat!

Hey! I ain't whining...just having a little fun.
By the way, shouldn't these things be called "Pools", and not "Polls"?

Don't like this idea without the PM. The 2nd poster gets to decide if they want to force a re-pick or pick someone else. The person who posts 1st has no control over that scenario.

I actually thought about that after I posted, but I never edit. Sigh, a good slam wasted.

Oh well... too bad. For once the late bird gets the worm.

To make things interesting, I'll switch my pick to NYG over CLE. If that's allowed. If not, that's fine.

That is fine. You can change your pick as many times as you like, as long as the game you switch to hasn't started, and the game that you currently have picked isn't in progress or already over.

For example, if on sunday you have a late game picked, and the early games are already started, you can switch to another late game, or the monday game, but you can't switch to one of the early games or the thursday game.

See the week one thread starter for the whole explanation.
