PostSubject: Playoff fun!   Tue Dec 18, 2012 11:27 am

In addition ot aour little pick em game that we play each week, which I will continue to do for the playoffs, I have another fun little game up my sleeve.

Slight problem though, there will be 12 teams that make the playoffs but there are only 8 of us that play regularly. Therefore we will need 4 more players. I have one of them filled already with my little pooch Maggie, that brings us up to 9.

They will be filled on a first come, first serve basis, so if you want to throw in your pet, or perhaps if any of you have a child or anyone else, go for it.

I'll have more details of how it will work once the playoffs are set and we know who is in and who is out. All I will say now is that each of you will be assigned a random team drawn out of a hat.

Here's a list of the current entrants:

1. philly

2. muggs

3. ctown

4. potato

5. capri

6. Trog

7. mema

8. mr. mema

9. Maggie

10. TBD

11. TBD

12. TBD

OK! Playoffs are here and this is how this is going to work.

Everyone will be assigned one team (A random draw out of a hat and I will do the draw later this week) and we will playout the bracket until we have a clear cut winner.

Some will have luck of the draw and get a bye in the first week, but don't fret if you get a huge underdog, there is a twist!

When the games are played, thye will be played against the vegas point spread. The point spread used will be determined at http://vegasinsider.com/nfl/odds/las-vegas/. Simply go to the link and look for the Open line

What does this mean you ask? Please allow me to explain.
Say, for example I pull Cincinnati and Capri pulls Houston. Houston is 4.5 point favorites, which means they are "giving" Cincinatti 4.5 points. Now if Houston wins the game by more than 4.5, they "cover" the spread and Capri moves on to the next round. But lets say that Houston wins the game, but they only win by 2. There, they do NOT cover the spread, but Houston moves on to the next round, but CApri however is out of the tourney and Houston would then belong to me.

Any questions feel free to let me know and I'll have the teams for the random draw and these weeks matchups either later today or sometime tomorrow (Probably tomorrow as I have to work both jobs today!)

mema - Baltimore Ravens (Congrats mema!)

ctown - Seattle Seahawks

Now remember, you can win someone elses team if they don't beat you by the point spread!

Yep, all you have to do is root for your team and hope they cover the spread.

SUPERBOWL XLVII

Baltimore (mema) @
San Francisco (BB Junkies) Pick

Note, the opening vegas line was a pick, has since moved to SF -3.5 but we predetermined we'd use the opening line so it's winner take all.

mema vs the rest of the board! You really got your hands full now mema!
