UPDATE: Last chance to sign-up. No more entries allowed after Wednesday!
In case you haven't noticed, FOOTBALL is here. The NFL starts Wednesday and the first game is Dallas losing to the Giants as usual. So NFL action has been bumped up a day just for you due to political things.
With that in mind, welcome to the 2012 Bloody Elbow Survivor League. What is a Survivor League you ask? Well it's simple, you make one prediction per week with one different team and you keep going until you lose.
Colts @ Bears ---- > Pick: Bears ---- > Result: Bears win ------- > Advance to week 2 and you cannot pick the Bears the remainder of the season.
Bills @ Jets ------ > Pick: Jets ------- > Result: Jets lose --------> You're done, son. Game over. Once you're eliminated you can't play again.
Other Rules To Note:
- YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PICK BY THE THURSDAY NIGHT GAME. The NFL did something stupid and decided that even the worst teams needed to waste their time on the NFL Network Thursday games virtually every week, meaning the Rams and Jaguars will be on your TV for "action". If you want to pick the Thursday game that's fine, but if you don't then you're still fine. Which reminds me...
- YOU ARE ELIMINATED IF YOU FORGET TO PICK. I was eliminated last year because I did not put in my pick on time. Granted, my pick was Saints over Rams and the Saints lost but still, DO NOT PULL A SUBO.
- REGULAR SEASON ONLY. It's almost logistically impossible to do a straight shot from regular season to Super Bowl, so this competition will be regular season only and the last man standing no matter what week we're in is the champion.
The winner will not receive money, license to abuse rule #4, or that embarrassing photo of Chris Hall accidentally stepping on a midget (happens to all of us, Chris), but a Chinese knockoff of wonderfulspam is "in the mix" as the top prize.
