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 Tampa 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 necessary.
  • 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 one-half (9 times) are guaranteed a spot - there are a total of 40 such guaranteed spots - the rest will be on a first-come / first-served basis. If the 10 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.
  • There is a chance that your Super Bowl tiebreaker will be the same as that chosen by another player. So when you submit your number, please also indicate whether you wish me to ADD or SUBTRACT points from your guess to make your pick unique. If you do not, I will flip a coin. In either case, I will move your pick in one direction just far enough to make it unique.
  • Once all of the guesses for a particular team have been made, I will publish them openly to this thread. Once that happens you will NOT be able to change yours.

For only the 2nd time ever, the pool champion is crowned during the Conference Finals. All five players got eliminated by selecting poorly, resulting in JeffTheAlpaca winning on a 2nd tier tiebreak over The Cow, due to having submitted his pick sooner. Everyone's winning percentage is gonna take a hit, since a 2-1 record is the best anyone posted this year....

Re: DVDTalk 2021 NFL Playoff Survivor Pool (19th Annual)

Please DO NOT submit picks yet or post "I'm In!" or "Reserving a spot!" posts to this thread. Such posts will be ignored. I will need until sometime tomorrow to get this set up, but wanted to let everyone know it was coming and to start thinking about their picks.


The pool is officially CLOSED right now...

Re: DVDTalk 2021 NFL Playoff Survivor Pool (19th Annual)

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.
