    this is abit confusing...   NYjoseph we need a ruling from the commish.

    based on the coin flip....   7-8  looks like bengals,  niners,  or  chiefs....?

     



    6 teams have been taken by the time 56redsox and irishfanatic get a chance to pick.

    I then put their lists side by side.

    I go down both lists until I find a team that hasn't been chosen.

    56redsox had the Bengals (unchosen) at #2.  If irishfanatic had the Bengals at #2 I would have flipped a coin.  He didn't so I continued down his list until I found the first unchosen team - the 49ers.

    Does that make sense?

    pats,broncs, shawks,49ers,pack, saints,panthers, colts,chiefs, eagles.




    Looking like you'll wind up with the Colts not a bad choice as they play WC game and will face the Donkeys who they've beat already this year could be Indy/Pats in AFC game?




    Looks like it depends on who 56redsox takes .    

    quoting jr37's avatar....  "WELL..................?   WE'RE WAITING............"

    lol...




    If you follow the progression of picks it was going to be the Colts due to RS56 and Quagmires picks? In hindsight I'd rather have the Colts than the Panthers--extra game and have just a good a chance to go as far as the Panthers?

    Not really since the position matters.  the tie if decided by a coin flip ...  plays out 2 different ways.    7 position is differnt than 8 position.

    if 56 is 7 then it goes bengals for 56redsox.....  and 49ers for Irish

    If Irish is 7 theen it goes Irish gets Bengals and  56redsox -chiefs.

     

    that changes the following teams as well. Just saying that it was a little confusing.  No big deal.    Maybe tweak it next year if you think it might clarify things...  Thanks.

    There was no coin flip.   I explained it the best I could.  Try reading it again.  Maybe someone else can explain it better.

    It makes total sense--I tried to explain to coolade BEFORE 56RedSox picked that he'd wind up with the Colts due to the order of both Quagmires and 56RS picks?

    It's a shame to get 44 from the Chiefs and be eliminated.

    44 points is like half a season for the Jets.

    Um ... how can you explain BEFORE 56RedSox picked ....? 


    That was the confusing part...  if 7-8 go  bengals-chiefs  then you would get 49ers and I would have gotten panthers...  right?

    Well that was short lived. What was I thinking picking these guys to play football...

    Good luck to everyone remaining!

    Joseph, I can't thank you enough for running the game. It was the most fun I had all season!

     

    Go Pats!

    If irishfanatic had picked 7th he would have gotten the Bengals. If 56redsox had picked 7th he would have gotten the Bengals. I see coolade's contention. I guess if 56redsox and irishfanatic don't have an issue with it then it's not an issue.

    Edit: Disregard this post, I failed to read the rules. nyjoseph had his bases covered.

    Re: Football Scoring Contest - Playoff Thread

    I guess I should apologize if there is/was confusion about the tie between irishfanatic and 56redsox.  It seems there is.

    In my defense (if this comes to trial) let me recap some things:

    (A) Here's what I said in the first post:

     

    Some more rules:

    1) I will assign teams to gameplayers by looking at their list in order from top to bottom.  So, even if you are ranked #5, for example, you may get assigned a team that you ranked higher if no one above you took them.
    2) The tie between 56redsox and irishfanatic will probably resolve itself under Rule 1, above.  If all else fails I will flip a coin and 1 guy will get #7 and the other will get #8.

    So, I didn't say that there would automatically be a coin flip between the two.  I said the flip would only take place if Rule 1 did not resolve the tie.  I don't get how anyone thinks either player's list would be used before the other's without a flip.  How?  

    (B) Both of the players actually received teams that they ranked higher than they would have received at position 7 and 8 if everyone had the same lists.  That was what I suggested might happen.   Irishfanatic received a team that he ranked #6.   56redsox received a team that he ranked #2.

    (C) As I mentioned, I put these players lists side-by-side.   By the time they picked 6 teams were already off the board.

    irishfanatic's #1 pick was the Packers.   They were already off the board.

    56redsox's #1 pick was the Saints.  They were already off the board.

    irishfanatic's #2 pick was the Eagles.  They were already off the board.

    56redsox's #2 pick was the Bengals.  He got the Bengals.  As I mentioned earlier, if BOTH players had taken the Bengals at the same position that would have resulted in a coin flip.

     

    If either irishfanatic or 56redsox are disappointed with how this went down I really am sorry.

    Wow.  They look pretty dejected.  I wonder if they put money up too?

    It was a pleasure to have you on board Cyberknot.  Those puzzles were great entertainment!

    NY Joseph,

    There is no need for any apologies, none required. As I have said before now, it is us who are thankful to you for running this comp.

     

    I am rooting for a Patriots v 49's S/B. 

     

    BTW, best of luck 2nite Digger.
