 Posted: Sun Aug 19, 2012 4:02 am    Post subject: 1 NFL Wipeout Rules: This game is played in 17 weekly rounds, one round for each week of the regular National Football League season. 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:Wednesday, September 5 at 8:30 PM EDT Thursday, September 13 at 8:20 PM EDT Thursday, September 20 at 8:20 PM EDT Thursday, September 27 at 8:20 PM EDT Thursday, October 4 at 8:20 PM EDT Thursday, October 11 at 8:20 PM EDT Thursday, October 18 at 8:20 PM EDT Thursday, October 25 at 8:20 PM EDT Thursday, November 1 at 8:20 PM EDT Thursday, November 8 at 8:20 PM EST Thursday, November 15 at 8:20 PM EST Thursday, November 22 at 12:30 PM EST Thursday, December 29 at 8:20 PM EST Thursday, December 6 at 8:20 PM EST Thursday, December 13 at 8:20 PM EST Saturday, December 22 at 8:30 PM EST Sunday, December 30 at 1:00 PM EST Complete schedule for the NFL 2012 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.Last edited by Chuck on Tue Oct 23, 2012 4:17 am; edited 1 time in total

Somewhat amusingly, he wouldn't have made a long field goal; it bounced off of the crossbar and went in.
