After ArenaFoot's victory last year, we're back again!

 

And big thanks to RickR for donating a sweet prize to the champ! (http://forums.atari....-yahoo/?p=10526)

 

Behold the Atari.IO Survivor Football pool.

 

For those of you not familiar with how a survivor pool works, all you need to do is pick one team to win each week. If that team wins, you survive and pick again the next week. If they lose, you're down. The catch is that you can only pick each team once.

 

Another twist is that I set it up where you have two strikes, so you won't be eliminated until you choose incorrectly twice. I did that because I'm afraid we won't have that many participants, so this will make the contest last a little longer.

Man I screwed up when I joined last year.  Hopefully I can figure it out this time.

As a life-ling Dolphins fan, I should have known better than to pick them. Thankfully, the Browns out-Browned the Dolphins. Survive & advance!

No Doubt! 

And you with no strikes!

Thankfully we're allowed one, or I would've been the first one out in week 2.

Now I'm hanging around like a bad cold, lol.

It was also interesting the other week when we both picked the same team. If we both lost, you would've won!

ARE YOU KIDDING ME???!!!???

NSG, you and I should go to Las Vegas and try our luck there on these football games.  We've made it through week 12.  Unbelievable.

UH OH!  Looks like I forgot to pick this week, so we are all tied up at one strike!

 

I thought I picked NWE, but I did it on my tablet and must have forgotten to press a submit button or something.  User error!  :) 

 

Still amazing that we made it to week 14!
