Me too. I have no idea what I am doing. So... we're just presented two teams going head to head and have to pick who will win?

You're picking against the spread.

well that's kinda ridiculous...not enuff ppl joined in the existing game so we just start another? (3guys does have a crappy interface, i'll admit)...i want to play but not in 3 different places...if i sign up for yahoo are you gonna stick with it even if it's just 3 of us?

I like this one better, I'll probably dump the 3 guys, too tedious to update.

Hey, I'm sucking ass at the EPL fantasy, I can probably suck as at this one too. My darling fascist bully boys are in.

what is survival football?

posted by jerseygirl at 06:30 PM on September 02, 2003

you pick one team each week that you are sure is going to win. as long as you pick a winner your streak is alive and you're still in the game. the tricky part is you can only pick a team once per season.

bah. i'd be out in the first week! :)

I'm in. Lay the wreath at my feet now, baby!

I posted my week one picks sheet a la Norman Chad like I said I would in the column forum, but they didn't show up. Do they have to be looked at by one of the pantheon or something before they go up?

posted by wfrazerjr at 05:56 PM on September 03, 2003

when do we have to get our picks in?

posted by jerseygirl at 07:02 PM on September 03, 2003

pronto, first game is thurs night.

I am going to suck so bad at this. Get ready for some high comedy with my picks.

posted by jerseygirl at 12:26 PM on September 04, 2003

well if the handicappers are doing their job right...the picks should be 50/50, so i won't be surprised at all if you end up in second place.

posted by danostuporstar at 01:14 PM on September 04, 2003

one game in and crap! washington wins but doesn't cover the spread and i am already one point behind the three people that made the correct pick.

posted by gspm at 04:05 AM on September 05, 2003

I'm guessing if it's a push like that nobody gets points.

Well, the Spofi knockout league is already done after the first week. I got the Denver/Cincy game right (Denver) and everyone else in the league either got the Miami game wrong or didn't make any picks this week. So yay! for me. Blah. I'm going to stay with it and see how far I can go in the overall standings.

Wow, that survival game sure didn't last long... Hurray for me!

posted by bcb2k2 at 09:29 AM on September 08, 2003

By my last post, I mean the Yahoo survival game... I suppose I can stay on and go against grum from his game, tho.

posted by bcb2k2 at 09:30 AM on September 08, 2003

bah. just call me jerseygirl

posted by danostuporstar at 09:35 AM on September 08, 2003

Okay bcb2k2, I guess it's heads-up between the two of us (on different sites). Who did you pick in the first game? I had Denver over Cincy.

posted by grum@work at 11:50 AM on September 08, 2003

I had the same, actually.
