Just like last year (this is the third year in a row I think I've done this, or maybe just the second). MoTown is the defending champ. I think it sent out emails to those who were in last year but it's possible they go to an account nobody reads so this is the general thread and invite to anyone who wants to participate.
The rules are pretty simple (for those who never played, this may be the "easiest" football related game you can play, and least time consuming). You just pick a single team to win the upcoming game that week. No spread, they just need to win. Once you pick a team you cannot pick them for the rest of the season. So if you pick the cursed Patriots to win in Week 1 that's the only time you can pick them to win a game. So it does pay to scout the schedule a bit I guess, but it's probably as equally luck as it is skill. Get one pick wrong, and you're done, although if only 6 or so people play I may bump it up to a double elimination. Last year we had 16 or so people so I'm hoping it stays the same or more join in. I think I got axed in Week 6 or so picking the Giants.
Anyways, here's a link to register:
Go to "join a group" and the below will get you in:
Group #: 9655
Also, if anyone wants part of a pick em league let me know. I don't even have to set it up (though I'm happy to) but we can discuss if we want to do college or pro or do the spread or confidence points or whatever.
