Football pool

Hey, any CLSB'ers up for this? To make things easy there are sites that can host and automate everything... like http://www.officefootballpool.com/

This could get interesting

I'd be in for that. I like the sudden death pools, in which you have to pick just one winner every week.

Yep that sounds good.

I get in a pool like sudden death. Costs $20 bucks initially and thats it for the year. You only pick 1 winner each week. Seems easy but its not. Its not to late for a sudden death pool here.

i would run it if need be.

what makes it more fun is if everyone agrees to pull 50 bucks out for a football day party (near the end obviously.

There is also a $25 buy in till there is only 10 people left

I'd do it myself cause sudden death is REAL easy to run.

Just PM me your winner 24 hrs BEFORE the game day.

Also, i think there should be a deadline by which the choices have been made, so you can post people's picks, and there isn't any bs with "I sent you my decision last minute!" just an idea

Sudden Death---

Out of the entire football games last week (Sunday) you pick 1 team to win. Lets say you picked Detroit to win. Okay since they won you call me before the next weeks game and pick another team you think will win. Lets say you choose Green Bay to win this week and they LOST. You are done for the year. UNLESS you want to buy back in for $25. You can only buy back in ONCE and there has to be atleast 5 people still in the hunt. Now here is the kicker. Lets say EVERYONE chose GreenBay on Sunday and you picked Chicago. Well the pool is over since you are the last man standing. Get it?

Now if it gets down to only 2 people you can call it off and split the money if you wish. Easy enough?

NO NO NO! I must have everyones pick 24 hrs prior to the game. If you pick a team playin on Thurday at 8pm I need the pick WED by PM. Sunday NOON=Saturday Noon Monday8pm = Sunday 8pm

No excuses. You miss the deadline you are out of the pool.

If you are going on vacation for two weeks you can give me 3 weeks pick in advance hoping your picks are still going.

OK?

Sudden Death may sound easy and you probably think that it would last all season long. But my experience is that the pool lasts about 3 to 5 weeks. So, it is not uncommon to 3 or so sudden death pools during the course of the season.

Absolutely!

We can have a thread with only 1 team showing! NO MENTION of anything else. This is for fun right? no money mentioned right----

AND any EDITING of a post after the 24hrs prior mark will be a void of that pick. (meaning you lose)

EXACTLY Mr Busa----Thats why i said in 3 weeks the pool could be over! ITS TOUGH!
