2013 Looser pool, Keno style.

OK, it's too late to start this week, but for next week, the all new and improved 2013 Looser pool begins. And yes, there will be another trophy awarded to the bigest looser (the one who can pick the most losing teams).

Now this year, it's going to keno style, meaning you can pick as many teams as you want, however, you are only awarded points if all the teams you select lose. Pick one team, earn one point, pick three teams (and they all lose), you earn three points, etc.

As usual, pictures of your picks cheer leaders are encouraged.


See you next week.....


AC

Keno style implies that the payoffs would increase much more quickly than you've proposed. Something like:

Pick:Pay
1:1
2:3
3:6
4:10
5:20
6:40
7:80
8:200
9:500
10:2000
11:5000
12:10,000
13:25,000
14:50,000
15:100,000
16:instant trophy everyone else bow down

Sorry dude, but it's my pool and if you pick 5 and all lose, you get 5 points.

If you pick 5 and even 1 loses, then you earn nothing....


That's why it's called the losser pool....

If we miss one are we out? I cant remember how it works. Anyways, the more games you pick, the more points you can score, but the better the chances are that you are eliminated. Do I have it right?

The thoughts of a losser.......

Come on, take your best picks, even you can't be that big of a losser.

That's correct, any one can become the leader at any time.

Did I mention there is a real trophy being awarded?

No, you're not out, you can play all season long, but you only earn points if all your picks lose.

Just as usual, the lossers pool starts the 2nd week of the season.


BTW, how come there is no winners pool this year? Eric, are you asleep?
