DVDTalk NFL Survival/Suicide Pool

Surprised nobody wanted to start one. So I am willing to start the Suicide Pool for DVDTalk this year. There is NO cost to play this year.

What's a Suicide Pool? It's a simple contest where you pick an NFL team each week to win. If they do, you stay alive. If they lose, you're out. The catch? Once you pick a team, you can't pick them again.

To sign up, do this :
1. Go to http://fantasysports.yahoo.com
2. Register for a Yahoo account, then login.
3. Click "Join Private League" link.
4. Enter the following information:
Group ID#: 16184
Password: godallas

I have set the league to accept 50 members which is the maximums. When you sign up, please use your DVDTalk handle as your "team" name. That way everybody has a better idea of who's who.

Here are the detailed rules. It's all actually very simple:

(1) You pick one team to win their game for that week. If they lose you are out. If you win you move on to the next week, but you can not pick that same team to win a game for any of their remaining regular season games. This same process goes on each week until their is only one person left.

(2) You cannot pick a team during their bye week. If you do, you will be eliminated. If your team happens to tie you will move on to the next round.

(3) If there is a week with Thursday games all picks including weekend games are due THURSDAY 12:00 PM EST. All other picks are due FRIDAY 12:00 PM EST.

(4) If you do not make your pick prior to the game of any given week, you are out.

-------------------------

Once you register, please let everybody know here so we have an idea of how many spots are left.

Good Luck Everybody

Give him a break. He's busy giving Palmer a much needed leg rubdown.
