    Jurgen is really really busy this year. So we're (royal) making this as easy as possible.

    Jurgen will post One game of the week-- worth 10 points-- you can't use that game for the next group. Picked against the spread.

    Each week you pick 4 winners-- That's right four (4) Not picked against the spread.
    Get one right = 5 points
    Two right = 10 points
    Three right = 20 points
    All four right= 30 points

    Plus the bonus, for as long as it lasts-- The suicide pool. Pick one team to win each week, you can NEVER reuse that team. Once your pick loses no more bonus for you. :thwak Each week you are right = 10 points. You have to keep track of what teams you picked. If a competitor sees that you've used the same team twice they get all of your bonus points, and you are done in this bonus section. You may not use any of the 5 picks above either for your bonus Suicide pick.

    First few weeks max pointage per week =50, as player lose their Suicide Bonus it will max out at 40 per week. Until Jurgen throws in some lame ass other bonus stuff.

    You may double down once per NFL month (Sept/Oct/Nov/Dec) Doubling down is an all or nothing gambit. All picks must be correct. You either get 100 (or 80 if you are out of the suicide pool) or naaaathing.


    Clear as mud?

    Just to clarify, do you mean we can never reuse the same team in a future suicide pick; or we can never use the same team in any picks, suicide or pool, in the future once it has been used as a suicide pick?

    Unfortunately, I'm painfully average. I suck at picking the winners and the losers.

    Yes, there will be a trophy this year.

    Mr. Clown's trophy will be pictured and posted this week so he can host a Trophy Ceremony at his first home game.

    Buggah, I went back and forth on the Texans or Colts for about 5 minutes.....and guessed wrong. Lot of close games from the scores...not that I would know as I had to work. But looks like some exciting games for the first week.
