Welcome to the 2011-2012 Pick'em! If you are rejoining us from last year, then you know the drill. For the rest of you, hi. Welcome to our annual football pool. All you do here is pick winners and losers, and guess at a couple of scores each week. Spreads are for suckers. Winners and losers, just like life. If you take first place for the season, you'll win something. What it is yet, I dunno. Lemme dig around my closet of old sports stuff. Last year's prize was Brett Favre's rookie card, so we're not exactly talking chump change here (Just chumps. STAY FUCKING RETIRED YOU OLD FART). First prize will be announced here sometime before the first game kicks off.

Anyway, the league doesn't kick off until the first game of the regular season, so you have all of pre-season to truck on over to Yahoo Fantasy Sports and sign up. We're private group id # 15567, and the password is v3. It's totally simple, free, and open to all. Join us in our annual ritual of sports prediction.

That is, of course, unless you're chicken. And now, the fine print:

1. Prizes will be awarded to the single player with the highest accumulated points for the complete regular season + all post-season games after each player's two lowest scoring weeks have been dropped.
2. In the event of a tie, and the tied players are located in Phoenix, players will meet and thumb wrestle in a single-out contest. If tied players are not all located in Phoenix, each player must submit a 7-item list of things that could improve the game of football - equipment, rules, strategies, whatever you think would make the game better. Lists will be judged by the league's commissioner. The commissioner's decision will be swift, just, and final. Should the commissioner himself be one of the tied parties he will withdraw from the competition.
3. If the winner is located in Phoenix, the prize will be hand-delivered by the commissioner. If the winner is outside of Phoenix, the prize will be mailed with alacrity at the league commissioner's expense.

Personally, I think the rules need to be amended so that in the event of a tie and one player not being in the Phoenix vicinity, the foreign player breaks both of his/her own thumbs with a ball peen hammer, pay for his/her own fare and duke it out with the other player.
In the event that there is a tie and both players are not from Phoenix, they have to head to Phoenix on their own dime and break each others' thumbs with vise grips, splash acid on each others' faces and then go to battle.
Did I miss anything?

I'll take that into consideration for next year, but as I consider ball peen hammers to be one of the things that would improve football, I doubt we'll see it being implemented in Pick'em tiebreakers. Vicegrips and acid, however, are on the shortlist for rules revisions.

Speaking of rules revisions, I'd like to see the return of 15 yard penalties for holding and more enforcement. It just goes on with about every pass play. I don't care if teams invest many more millions in quarterbacks, they're supposed to be football players. Stop placing kulats on them.
I'd better not get into a tie this year because I feel as though I've spilled the beans.

If you're that concerned, move to Phoenix before the end of the season and you can dominate the thumbwrestling competition.

GRAND PRIZE ANNOUNCEMENT

The grand prize for this year's pickem tournament will be an assortment of Reggie Bush football cards, including one from his USC days.
Total value is probably only 20 bucks or so but if you sit on em for the duration of his career and then some, they might be worth 30 someday!



Best of luck to all players - the season kicks off Thursday! MAKE YOUR PICKS!

Congrats to Fac Et Spera, who has been dubbed this week's winner, breaking the 3-way tie with Adam Draper and spam_vigilante via point predictions.

No Thursday games this week, so you have a few days to make your next set of picks!

Big ups to Miny Moe who hit 13 games this week and took the top spot in a 3-way tie for the week with his tiebreaking score picks.

We drop the lowest two weeks for each player, so if you've been stinking up the joint (like I have) up till this point, you have a clean slate going into the rest of the season!

This week's top scorer was LoS GAnSiToS, with sole possession of first place in week 3. Congratulations!

We had one player that didn't get their picks in this week - no sweat, we drop the two lowest weeks so don't be discouraged! You're still in it!

Holy crap, it's been a tough couple of weeks - we've got 5 players who had to drop both of the past 2 weeks, and more dropped games in the past 2 weeks than the rest of the season combined.

Kickoff in a few minutes. Get your picks in and here's to hoping we can collectively break this shitstorm of a streak!

Many congrats to spam_vigilante, who handily took the regular season - but we ain't done yet! The playoffs figure in as well, so it's hardly a done deal.

GET YOUR PICKS IN!

Oh, it was plenty close. I'm only a few games ahead after a whole season of 17 weeks. Let's give the others like Penzini (sp?) and Go Tigers for their great years also. And with four playoff weeks? Ya never know!

Don't be so modest - you have sole possession of 1st place with a 6 point lead over 2nd, and you won 3 weeks of the season - more than anyone else.

There's still a chance someone can take the year away from you with the playoffs, but you won the season handily.
