NFL REGULAR SEASON RULES
1. Pick one winning team each week (straight-up, no spread).
2. Picks must be submitted on the website by kick-off of the first game each Sunday. If you are picking a Thur or Sat game, it also needs to be made
before the scheduled kick-off of the game.
3. In the past, we had the infamous "Chavis Rule" gave you the MNF favorite if you didn't get your pick in on time. However, now you have to get
your pick in on time or you will be eliminated. No exceptions.
4. If your team wins, you stay alive to pick the next week. Lose or tie and you're out (but see the next rule).
5. If you lose during weeks 1 or 2, you can buy back into the pool for another $40 (you can do this both weeks if your prognosticative skills suck that
badly).
6. You can only use each team once during the season (regardless of whether or not you buy back or not).
7. NEW RULE: If we don't have a winner by week 14, the remaining contestants have to pick two games per week for weeks 15-17.  Lose 2 one of
those weeks and you're out unless all others also lose two.  Lose 1 and you're out if anyone got two right.  If everyone ties--2 losses, 1 loss or no losses,
all members proceed to the next week.
8. If there are multiple players alive after week 17, the pool will continues by picking weekly full playoff schedules using a fresh slate of teams. If the
contest extends into the Super Bowl, there's the possibility that a dweller may run out of teams--if you run out of teams you are automatically out of
the pool, unless all other remaining dwellers have run out of teams too. So the priority is as follows:
A. Pick winning team in week 21 and be the only dweller left standing.
B. Pick winning team in week 20 and at least have an eligible team to play in week 21. If you're the only dweller who has a remaining team for week
21, you win.
C. Pick a winning team in week 20 but have no remaining team to use.
9. If there is still a tie through the Super Bowl, the contest extends into the beginning of the following season using a fresh slate of teams and no
buy-backs.
10. If any week sees all remaining contestants lose, the week is considered a draw and all the players defeated that week are reinstated to continue the
game. In this scenario, players who lost in previous weeks are NOT reinstated.
11. In the event of a selected game ending in a tie, that game is now considered a loss.  
12. If there are 3 or less players remaining, $1,200 of the pot can be divided up with the balance remaining in the pot for the eventual champion. This
can only happen if all of the remaining players agree to the deal and it can only be voted on one time.
13. The "McGough Rule" states that the last person left alive takes the remaining heap of benjamins--no further side deals with the other finalists.
You pick one team to win each week (two starting week 15). If they lose, you are eliminated. You must get your pick in by the weekly deadline -
before the first game each Sunday. Early games must be picked before they start. All picks will be hidden until the game has begun (for early games)
or the until the first game on Sunday. Good luck to everyone. If you have any questions, please contact me at craigjacobin@cox.net.
NFL FANTASY PLAYOFF POOL RULES
1. For each week of the playoffs, you select 1 QB, 1 RB and 2 WR's, 1 TE, 1 K and 1 Defense as your starting seven players for the week.
2. Each week, through the Super Bowl, you pick a new team of players & a defense as your starters. But you can't pick the any of the same
players/defenses twice.
3. Each week, your starting QB, RB, WR's and TE earn points through yardage gained passing, rushing or receiving, as well as for touchdowns.  Each
yard is worth 1 point, each touchdown is worth 60 points in week 1, 70 points in week 2, 80 points in week 3 and 100 points in the Super Bowl.  
4. I'm adding a new bonus feature in the Super Bowl, where you can pick either your RB, TE or either WR for 150 pt TD scoring during one half of   
the game.  For example, if you pick Demaryius Thomas-WR/Denver in the 1st half, you earn 150 points for any TD's he scores during that half (and
hoping that equates to several touchdowns this year).  Yardage does not have any special bonus during the Super Bowl.
5. Kickers earn 10 points for extra points and 30 points for field goals.  Defenses earn 10 points per sack and 20 points per fumble recovery,
interception or safety.  Defenses can also score touchdowns, worth 60 points.  During the Super Bowl, kicker field goals are worth 45 points and
defensive touchdowns are worth 100 points.   Results will be taken from espn.com
6. Special teams plays do not count toward either the yardage or touchdown totals for your team defense.
7. Select your starters for the week and email them to craig.jacobin@cox.net no later than Friday at 2pm pacific time. I'll send one reminder email
each week to everyone in the pool.  Anyone failing to turn in their picks on time will be SOL (sadly, it happens every year).
8. As a final week tie-breaker, you'll also need to project a yardage total for your starting quarterback in the Super Bowl.  In the event of a tie, the
participant who is closest (above or below) their starter's total is the winner.
9. I'll distribute everyone's picks on an excel spreadsheet before the first kick-off.  And the detail on the previous week's scoring will be there also.  
The website will simply track total points scored each week and the running totals.  Also, since I'll be traveling to Denver for at least one playoff game,
the website posting could drag a bit the second weekend of the playoffs--but the excel spreadsheet will go out for sure before kickoff.
10. The highest total score gets 70% of the pot, 2nd place gets 20% and 3rd place gets 10%.  This year's pot of $3,900 equated to $2,730/780/390.  

That's it. GOOD LUCK!!
Update...
Ron Payne comes all the way back from 11th place and kills it in the final week. On top of that, he managed to become the back-to-back champion in KOH history
(something I'm sure the punk-ass Seahawks wish they could call themselves right about now).  Congrats, Ron--well played.

The Ballsy Pick of the Week...
We'll get back to this next season.
