    I'm game for whichever format as long as I'm not required to take my team.

    i was wondering if there's a group interested in a discussion about the best team to pick from week to week in a suicide pool. i'm in one, and wouldn't mind having access to a bunch of weekly opinions, as least as long as i was in the running.

    when i've done picks tournaments, our scoring was that you pick the winner and get 10 points if you are correct. then you pick a spread for how much you think your team will win by. if you're right, you get those points, too. so realistically you'd never want to pick a team to win by less than 6, as it wasn't worth much, but if you have a potential blowout on the board, do you pick a 20-point blowout and win 30 points for that game, but risk only getting 10 if your pick only wins by 19.

    I posted this over in Non-Vegas Chat but I hope the mods don't mind me posting this over here for a few days since the season is almost here and I thought some of you may want to get in on this. I set up a free NFL Pick-Em (against the spread) for the board. If anybody wants to join here's the info.

    I actually don't land until around 1:15 on the 20th but for some reason my countdown timer is a few hours off. It can't come soon enough!

    I'm one of five people who stuck with it for the entire season. Big week 17 helped keep me out of the cellar.
