Saturday Sep 18, 2016


**Week 2 picks are updated. Good Luck!


Thursday Sept 15, 2016


**One week and I already have my first error. Somehow I had 13-10 score for the BILLS game, which was incorrect. The standings have been corrected.



Wednesday Sept 14, 2016


**The best advice I can give is to remember that this pool is a Marathon, and not a Sprint! Sorry Garrick, thereís always next year!

Note: the rule on Points pool is if you have LESS than 1,000 points, you will have to bet all your points on 1 game. If you have 1,000 or more points, you have to bet at least 250 points per game. In Garrick's case, he HAS to bet 4 games at 250 points each.


**Standings are updated and Week 2 lines are Posted.


*Please, if you spot an error or if I make a mistake on the point spreads, let me know as soon as possible so I can correct it and let everyone know. The mistake will get caught eventually and it will be much easier to fix if it is caught before everyoneís picks are in.


A Pretty pathetic Week overall as we lost a combined 48,000 points and our win Pct was only 41.6%!


**Reminder: Picks are due by Noon on Friday and starting this week, you can only bet on the Sunday games for the Points Pool and the Champion Jack Pool


**I use the average spread of 5 different oddsmakers for our pools. If 2 or more of them do not have a spread by Wednesday, I will list the game as "Np Points BetsĒ, which means you canít bet points, BUT you have to pick the game for the Champion Jack pool and you can pick one of the teams in the suicide pool


**If you want to pick a Thursday game for the Suicide pool, the pick has to be in by 6pm on Thursday


**The next update to this page will be Saturday morning and will have everyoneís picks online. Good Luck!



Sunday Sept 11, 2016


**And here we go!!!All Week 1 picks are in and updated. Click on the Week 1 links to see what everyone picked.


* GOOD LUCK to everyone! Thanks for playing and have fun!


Reminder: Starting Week 2, Point Spreads will be updated on Wednesday and all picks are due by noon of Friday. Call, email or texting your picks are fine



Thursday Sept 8, 2016

-Itís that time of year again. We had a lot of fun and it was very competitive last year. Iím running the same pools this year with some changes to the rules that will hopefully make it more fun and competitive.


-All 2016 Pools: Start in week 1


ō Points Pool$100Payout: 60%/30%/10%


--Each Player starts with 20,000 Points

(Iím bumping it up to 20k and hope this will really make things more fun and competitive.)


--Season starts on Week 1 and goes until Week 15

--Player must bet at least 1000 points per week

--Player must bet 4 games

(250-point minimum per bet)

--You can use any combo of points as long as each bet is at least 250-points. There is no max, you can bet all your points if you want.

--Betting points ONLY on SAT & SUN games

†† (no bets THU or MON)

†† Exception: There will be betting on Thanksgiving games

--Point Spreads will now be posted on Wednesdays to get more accurate lines and will be determined by the 4 main oddsmakers

--Regular rules stay the same: no cheating with other players, you canít bet 2 teams on the same game, ties count as a push and no points are won or lost, bets can be made in any increments of 25 except on Week 15 when you can bet any amount....

--Bets are due by Noon each Friday. If picks are not in by the time the other Players picks are updated to the website, there will be a 500 Point penalty. I will try to contact you by email or text if I donít have your picks but in fairness to the others, you will need to send in your picks on time so I can get them online.

--If you have less than 1000 points, you must pick 2 teams for the same amount of points. Ex: You have 700pts: Bet #1-350, #2-350

--Players can purchase 2 pools

--Season ends after Week 15 on Dec 18th. Payouts will be on Thursday December 22nd at the Taproom. If you want to pick up your winnings before then, you can stop by my house and collect.

--Pick each SAT & SUN game with spreads

--Ties do not count

--Player with most wins after Week 15 is the Champ

ō  Suicide Pool 1 $25Payout: see below


--Starts week 1

--Pick 1 Team each week to win & you cannot use that Team again

--Bets are ďwithoutĒ spreads so you are simply picking a team to win the game

--If there is a TIE game: If there is only 1 player remaining then you lose. If there are others still in the pool, you are NOT eliminated BUT you must pick two winners the following week. BOTH teams involved in the tie are not eligible for you to pick again in the pool.

*--Payout Option 1: If we get $500 or less (20 players), then the payout is Winner Take all.

*--Payout Option 2: If more than 20 players, $100 will be deducted from the total and paid out to the 2nd remaining player. If there are more than 1 player eliminated on the week someone wins, they will continue to play for the $100 until 1 person wins.
