DVDTalk 2010 NFL Playoff Survivor Pool (8th Annual)

DVDTalk 2010 NFL Playoff Survivor Pool

2009 Survivor Pool (won by kenbuzz): here
2008 Survivor Pool (won by slymer):here
2007 Survivor Pool (won by Calculon):here
2006 Survivor Pool (won by Drexl):here
2005 Survivor Pool (won by dick grayson):here
2004 Survivor Pool (won by Daryl): here
2003 Survivor Pool (won by rabbit77): here

The rules are simple:
  • As we head into a weekend of playoff football, you pick one team.
  • If that team wins, you survive to the next weekend.
  • If that team loses, you're out.
  • Once you've picked a particular team, you cannot pick that team again in later weeks.
  • For tie breaker purposes, you must also provide the total # of points that will be scored in the game you've selected. (For example, if your first round pick is Philadelphia, you must also provide your guess for the total # of points in the Eagles' game against Green Bay.)
Picks must be posted to this thread before kickoff of the first game of the weekend. Each week's picks and results will be summarized at the top of the thread. In the event that we have multiple winners *or* everybody gets eliminated during the same weekend, the winner will be the person who guesses closest to the total # of points scored in their game. If no point guess is included with your pick, you will be assigned a guess of ZERO.

Additional Info:
  • Tie breakers (in the form of total # of points) will be used to determine the final order of finish where necesssary.
  • In case of a tiebreaker tie, the player who submits their pick first will have the edge.
  • If both of the teams who make it to the Super Bowl have already been picked by a particular player, that player will be eliminated due them being "shut out" of the Super Bowl. That player's order of finish will be ahead of all of those eliminated during the Conference Finals, but behind those eliminated during the Super Bowl.
  • A player may change their picks at any time prior to kickoff of the first game, but may only do so by posting a new message to this thread. Posts that contain an "Edited by" timestamp will be ignored.
  • The pool will be capped at fifty (50) players. All past champions and players who have participated at least 5 times are guaranteed a spot - there are a total of 17 such guaranteed spots - the rest will be on a first-come / first-served basis. If the 33 non-guaranteed spots fill, players after that can stand-by in case a guaranteed spot goes unclaimed.

Additional Additional Info:
  • Once we get past the Conference Finals, I will go ahead and post each players' respective Super Bowl picks. (Each player will have no more than one eligible team.)
  • If more than one player has the same team, please PM your total points pick to me. This denies anyone an unfair advantage. If you are the only player to have one of the teams, you do NOT need to submit a guess for total points.
  • Once all of the guesses have been made for a particular Super Bowl finalist, I will post them to the thread. If your guess is the same as someone who has already guessed, I will flip a coin to either add or subtract one (or more) point(s) to/from your guess as necessary to ensure your pick is unique. Once all of the guesses for a particular team have been made and published, you will NOT be able to change it.

= Champion!
= Past Champion

Super Bowl:

Here is the spread table for a PACKERS victory:
  • 39 or fewer = flagstone
  • 40-43 = LorenzoL
  • 44-49 = wirefan
  • 50 or more = chrisih8u <--- 56 points (Green Bay 31-25)
Here is the spread table for a STEELERS victory:
  • 39 or fewer = LurkerDan
  • 40-41 points = Fist of Doom
  • 42-44 points = Red Dog
  • 45-47 points = IDrinkMolson
  • 48 or more = edman180

Picks are shown in the order in which they were received. If a player revises his/her pick, they move to the bottom of the list of active players. In the unlikely event of a tie between players, where two or more players eliminated in the same round missed their total point guess by exactly the same difference, pick order will break the tie with earlier picks winning over later picks.

Re: DVDTalk 2010 NFL Playoff Survivor Pool (8th Annual)

Okay, here we go. Please remember to submit your first round selection *and* guess for point total in that game. Picks with no point total will be assigned a value of ZERO for tiebreaker purposes. Not a big deal in round one, sure, but it can make a significant difference in later rounds.

Picks that have "Edited by..." stamps on them will be ignored. If you decide to change your pick please do so by adding a new post to the thread.


The pool is now officially OPEN. Good luck to all.

Hmmm ... interesting concept with the optimal picks being teams that will win but not advance. Have to give that some thought.

New Orleans 44

Man, I didn't realize how shitty I was at this game. My best finish, 14th, was only because more than 2/3rds of the players got wiped out in the first round last year and I was #2 among that group based on point diffs.

^You have me at 45 points, and it should be 42.
