Changing my pick.

NE - 50

I need Arz to win for my work pool, but not that confident in them.

I stand by my statement.

^ Everybody's picks have been updated, including IDrinkMolson's change.

PLEASE double-check the table and make sure I have recorded your pick correctly. Now that all 26 picks are in, I'll update the scenarios and post them shortly. You *can* change your pick up until kickoff in Denver, but you will drop to the bottom of the table if you do.

Scenario update:

Home Cookin' Scenario (both home teams win - Denver & Carolina):
7 players will have Denver, 1 will have Carolina, and there will be 1 shut out

What Jet Lag? Scenario (both visiting teams win - New England & Arizona):
1 player will have New England, 15(!!) players will have Arizona, and there will be 1 shut out

Sunday Bloody Sunday Scenario (Denver and Arizona win)
Jericho wins, the Chief will be 2nd (but shut out), everybody else is eliminated

Bandwagon Scenario (New England and Carolina win):
7 players will have New England, 16(!!) will have Carolina, and 1 will be shut out

By the way, if we end up in a scenario where there are a LOT of players with the same team, I am going to ask folks to send in their points tie-break guess as soon as possible. Of course, send it via PM so nobody can gain an advantage.

If the tiebreak value you send is unique - in that nobody before you has chosen that number - it's yours. If the value you send is already in use, I will flip a coin and will either ADD or SUBTRACT point(s) to make it unique. I one point isn't enough I'll use two. Or three. Or as many as necessary until yours is unique. Then that's YOUR value and I move on to the next PM. When all of the PMs for a specific team are in, I'll publish the results and the spread table for that team. And, of course, once you send your pick in you will NOT be allowed to change it.

Most of you are going to get stuck with a tiny 1-2 point window. Can't be helped, the bandwagon only has so much room on it.

I was hoping others would all change their picks to better my odds.

But I'll give it a go and see how it works out.

Arizona - 49

Forgive my ignorance. It's obvious I've never advanced this far before.

I think I was wanting to put Denver, but that's what I get for jumping on here a few minutes before 3 and trying to figure out all the different scenarios with no time to spare. Maybe it will all work out in my favor.

Denver 20, New England 18

Jericho moves to the top of the table, while the blood flows as 15 of 26 players are eliminated and 3 more are Shut Out of the Super Bowl.

Super Bowl L/50:
Carolina "at" Denver

CAROLINA: Jericho "owns" the Panthers. If they win the Super Bowl, Jericho wins the pool

DENVER: Seven players share Denver. I need each of them to PM me with their tiebreak pick as soon as possible. Those players, alphabetically, are:

I wish I hadn't failed in my attempted switcheroo.

PM sent. Worst to first, baby!
