    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?

    [/QUOTE]

    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?

    The commish has ruled and I get the way it was done ....  like I said no big deal.

    Simple math but I have a Masters in Physics and have been told I make no sense many times in my life so Par for the course. Good luck,(no pun intended)-I actually wanted the Colts VS Panthers due to their higher percentage of point possibilites if they survived the first round,( yet I did not anticipate a Cinci loss),  If a WC team makes it to the SB I have it at 116 points to win and if its a second round team I have it at 97 points for the title-based on rough calculations.

    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.

    All you players make the game fun.

    It was great having you on board.    I tried to find a loophole in the rules to get you into the playoffs, but I came up empty.

    nyjoseph, to echo the last 4 or 5 posters... thanks for running a tremendously entertaining contest! hope we get to do this again next year!




    Echo right back to you.

    The Players make the game.   

    I used to post a lot more over the years.   Now, I rarely do.  When you look at the contest threads over 2 years it's probably about 35 threads and easily over 1000 posts.  I doubt there was a single post in all of those where someone came in to attack someone else or just be a pest for no reason.  On this board, that's like finding a needle in a haystack.   

    So, it's the Players that make it fun or not, and we have had a great group of players.

    Congratulations to those who made the playoffs, and everyone else who played - particularly those who stuck through thick and thin for 17 weeks.

    Summary of Playoffs from September thread:

    These 12 people will be given one real playoff team whose playoff points they want.  The regular season winner has the first choice of team, the second place finisher has the second choice and so on. The 12th place finisher is stuck with the last team not chosen, but still must choose a team* (see rules below).  Regular season points do not count toward playoff totals. In case of a tie, the playoff champion will be the team that advances the furthest.

    (Realize that teams that play in the wild-card round play an extra game.  That's all part of the challenge.  Does your team go 1 and done?  So, for example, last year's playoff point winner was the Ravens at 124.  The Ravens were in the wild-card round. They nearly lost to the Broncos in the 2nd round.  So, strategy comes into play ... do you take a wild-card round team with the extra round and hope for a run to the Super Bowl, or do you go with a team that earns a bye that you expect to go all the way?)

    The Season Champion is the player with the most playoff points when the Super Bowl is over.

    Here's what each of you need to do:

    1) Look at the "Order" column above to find your name.
    2) Post your preference, IN ORDER, for the team you would most like to have;  If you are ranked #1, you really only need to give me 1 team, since no one can pick before you;  If you are ranked #10, give me your top 10 teams.
    56redsox and irishfanatic tied for 07/08.  These 2 players should give me a list of 8 teams.
    3) Do not wait for everyone ranked higher than you to post your list.  Doing this could cause you to miss the deadline.  The deadline for posting is 12PM EDT Saturday Jan. 4th.


    If you want to keep your selection private until the deadline you can send an email to:

    scoring-contest@hotmail.com

    If you use this method please do 3 things:

    1) Post a note on this thread telling me to check for email

    2) Identify your BDC name in the email

    3) Send the email before the deadline

    I will post these selections in this thread after the deadline.

    Some more rules:

    1) I will assign teams to game players 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.
    3) Anyone failing to post a list will not get a team
    4) Once you post your list it is final. 
    5) If you have any questions, post them BEFORE you post your list. 

    This thread will be the final thread for this contest, through all rounds of the playoffs.  I will post updated standings after each round.

    Good Luck!

    Should be interesting the rest of the way-Obviously One of the four teams left will win the Title! Unless we start seing 6-3 scores which I highly doubt? Good luck to the last 5

    Thanks guys.  I really enjoyed the contest and hope we can do this again next season.  I love that the Pats scored more points through the playoffs than Denver did -- no offense to Ayy Boston intended.
