Re: DVDTalk 2016 NFL Playoff Survivor Pool (14th Annual)

Okay, here's how we wrap up the pool....

For our four finalists (yojimbo44, Quack, The Cow, and LorenzoL), we already know who your Super Bowl pick has to be. Two of you have the Falcons, two of you have the Patriots. I would like you to please PM me with your tiebreaker pick - points.

There is a TINY chance that both players having the same team submit the same tiebreaker. In the past, I would flip a coin and add or subtract one from the second pick to make that pick unique. I can still do that, OR you can direct me which direction you want your pick "bumped" in case this happens.

So, please PM me your tiebreaker value and, optionally, the direction (up or down) I should adjust it in case your pick is 2nd AND is the same as the guy who picked 1st. If no direction is provided, I will flip a coin and post the results.

I will NOT post tiebreaker values for either team until BOTH players' picks have been received.

Thanks, and good luck!

Re: DVDTalk 2016 NFL Playoff Survivor Pool (14th Annual)

This is pretty awesome. Usually I have to wait a week to get everyone to submit their picks. Our finalists had everything done before I got home from work on Monday. Kudos!

I have received the following picks:
01-22-17 09:56pm NEP The Cow [60-up]
01-22-17 10:00pm ATL yojimbo44 [66-down]
01-23-17 09:15am NEP LorenzoL [55-up]
01-23-17 09:42am ATL Quack [64-down]

Nobody picked a number that had already been chosen, so no picks needed to be bumped up/down

Super Bowl:

Here is the spread table for a FALCONS victory:
64 or fewer = Quack [chose 64]
65* or more = yojimbo44 [66]
*=yojimbo44 gets 65 because his pick was submitted earlier than Quack

Here is the spread table for a PATRIOTS victory:
57 or fewer = LorenzoL [chose 55]
58 or more = The Cow [60]

And now.... the very long wait.

If the Patriots score 32 or more points, Quack cannot win because Atlanta can't top that AND still keep the total under 64. Similarly, LorenzoL needs the Falcons to be kept under 29.

Heading into OT, tied at 28.

If NEP wins, The Cow wins.
If NEP kicks a FG and ATL responds with a TD, yojimbo wins.
If both teams kick a FG and ATL later wins, yojimbo wins.
If ATL wins any other way, Quack wins.
