In each round, before any NFL games for that week have started, each players sends the game moderator (me) a selection of one or more teams that are scheduled to play that week. After the final game for that week is over, each player receives a score equal to the sum of scores of the teams he selected. However, each player who selected that week's lowest scoring team gets zero instead. If more than one team ties for low score then selecting any of them earns zero points. Teams that don't play in a week aren't counted as scoring zero. There is no penalty for selecting such a team. Example, if the scores are:Steelers 23Raiders 20Jets 16Colts 7Browns 54Ravens 3A player choosing the Steelers, Raiders, and Colts would get the sum of their scores, 50 points. A player choosing the Browns and the Jets would get 70 points. A player choosing the Raiders, Jets, Colts, and Ravens would get no points because the Ravens had the lowest score. After the last game of each week the players' choices for that week, points earned, and total scores so far will be posted in the game thread. Players who miss the deadline for sending selections will use their previous week's selections. They might get no points for it but it's better than getting a certain zero by not having a selection at all. A player can also send a default list of teams to be used if deadlines are missed. A default list can be changed as often as the player likes. Players can start late but will get no points for the weeks they miss. The player with the highest total score after the 17th week has been played and scored is the winner. Strategy: Obviously, if you select all of the teams you'll get no points. Choosing many teams will probably get you zero but could get you a lot of points if you're lucky or knowledgeable. If you're behind in the end game that might be a good strategy. Choosing few teams will probably get you some points but could get you none if you're unlucky. If you're ahead in the end game you might want to do this to avoid taking a zero. Knowing the teams could help. You might want to avoid teams that have been scoring poorly and teams that are playing against strong defensive teams that week. Here are the deadlines for each week's selections:Thursday, September 9 at 8:30 PM EDTSunday, September 19 at 1:00 PM EDTSunday, September 26 at 1:00 PM EDTSunday, October 3 at 1:00 PM EDTSunday, October 10 at 1:00 PM EDTSunday, October 17 at 1:00 PM EDTSunday, October 24 at 1:00 PM EDTSunday, October 31 at 1:00 PM EDTSunday, November 7 at 1:00 PM ESTThursday, November 11 at 8:20 PM ESTThursday, November 18 at 8:20 PM ESTThursday, November 25 at 12:30 PM ESTThursday, December 2 at 8:20 PM ESTThursday, December 9 at 8:20 PM ESTThursday, December 16 at 8:20 PM ESTThursday, December 23 at 8:20 PM ESTSunday, January 2 at 1:00 PM ESTComplete schedule for the NFL 2010 season. Selections can be sent by private message or by email. If you use email be sure to include your Grey Labyrinth screen name in your message. You can list the teams by team name or location name except New York in which case you have to say whether it's the Jets or the Giants. One team per line would be nice. There is no signup deadline. I recommend signing up before the first week of the season.

 Posted: Sun Sep 12, 2010 6:32 pm    Post subject: 13 Heheheheheheh! I'm loving the game. There were several plays where they gave Tom Brady 4 or 5 seconds nearly unmolested in the backfield. LOL! 3 guesses what happened on those plays. Tom Brady + Randy Moss + Wes Welker + two young, promising tight ends + good pass protection = Superbowl My only concern is that I put the Bengals on my list, considering the youth of the Pat's defense and their weak performance in the preseason. Well, there's 3 points for Cincinnati, and still a half to go.

There's only one person who doesn't have THEM on his list -- I'm just sayin' Edit: I was going to say that I'm happy with either the Cowboys or the Redskins being low team, but the Cowboys just embarrassed themselves on the last play of the half, trying a stupid play that resulted in a fumble and a touchdown for Washington. End of half: 10-0 Redskins.
