Speaking for my Uncle Sniff who can't seem to figure out how to log on to this board from his Florida locale -

"...i am still in this if everyone above me goes bust and i win out...i feel like pittsburgh...

...and just for shits and giggles i'm thinking of taking the fucking pats just to jinx them and ensure a KC victory...

 

...and the shots if they win are on me!

Unfortunately I went opposite figuring it would be the only way for me to make a jump, and I did make a jump, right off a cliff!

I went with the Bronn method this week.  Max points on the Pats and hope they lose.

Since they were getting points, I only wish I'd gone with my instinct and bet $200 on them ($200 being about what I think I'm willing to pay to get a Patriots loss).

Well the season is over and I think we might have a tie. I believe JJ is KSB, who is down 15 points to WHB. However, he was allowed to reclaim exactly 15 points from earlier in the year. If so, that's pretty damn funny:

I was looking at that before the game on Sunday. If we took the same team it was going to be a tie. Just terrible. Haha.

I thought I had nine or ten points coming back from the mobile snafu on the vikings Thursday night game.  So i claim the undisputed world championship.  JJ is free to make up some phoney title for himself and we can talk a lot of smack before unifying them next season!

Congrats to the winners.  I'm glad my week 1 of the playoffs snafu didn't keep me out, since I know I'd have been less than perfect.

I think the tie-breaker SHOULD be the team who scored the most points in the drop week.  In fact, I think next time we should eliminate the drop week altogether.

Those last 5  or 6 weeks were brutal for me, so I claim the title of 3/4 season Champ! 
Looking forward to next season.

Screw titles, as commissioner, I demand entry fees, retroactively of course. $500 a head, no negotiations.

I'm down for eliminating the drop week if we ditch the confidence points and move to picking against the spread. I'd probably want to keep it if we keep the current system. We'll put it all up to a vote next summer before the start of the season.

Winner take all?

Id be fine w dropping the drop week but I think confidence points require more skill and more strategy than against the spread.

If the lines are good enough we re basically just flipping then.

I'll need a 20% cut. 

As far as the switch goes, we'll figure it out next year. I just like the idea of going against the spread because then I can justify gambling if I'm good at it.

:P
