Ok so this is the official forum for the football competion. All of the news and other updates will be posted here. Please check this weekly. We still have 2 spots remaining. If you have a friend that likes football ask them to message me. For those random people who are reading this if you like football or have a random friend who likes football tell them to come to me. Remember this is NFL not College Football.



Rules:

Ok rules are really simple. We will do a draft. Everyone will get 3 teams. Everytime that team wins, you get a point. In the result of a tie both teams will earn a point.


Draft

I will write the names down on a paper. I will one at a time pull the names out of a hat. That person will draft last at the end of the first round. The next name I pull out will draft second to last and so on. After we pull out the order we will double up meaning the last person of the first round will go first and the second to last will go second and so on. For the third and final round we will repeat the first round.


Trades

You and any other person are allowed to make a trade. You can trade teams, points, and draft picks. The only rule is each person must have 3 draft picks at the end of the trade whether you're trading picks or not. You must either post on my page or in this forum.


Playoff Points

Next up; playoff points. Each team who makes the playoffs gets 1 point. Winning the wild card round or getting a bye during the Wild Card round gets you two points. Winning the Divisional round gets you 3 points. Winning the Conference round gets you 4 points. Superbowl points are unknown yet. We will take a vote about it later in the season.



Ok I think that's it. If anyone has a question just post here or on my profile. For the people in the competion please comment so I know when I can post more updates. Draft order will be decided after enough people respond. Thanks guys.

jeol if you would like to join select four of the pool teams. You will not get points for the previous weeks so sorry dude. I believe there is a sixth pool team that I am missing. Please post your picks before tonight's game.

So a fourth into the season. Thoughts? My comments are last years worst team is undefeated, the past 2 superbowl winners have 2 wins combined, Jaguars are having a historically bad season, the Lions have more wins than the 49ers, and the Cowboys are winning their division. At least we expected one of those.

As far as I know, there are 9 * 3 + 5 = 32 teams. That *should* be correct.

Four of them? I'll take everyone but the Steelers. I don't care about the points.

The Cowboys are winning in their division only because the other three teams aren't doing so well. They're only 2 - 2. Except for the Chiefs, they haven't faced any of the 4 - 0 teams yet. I mean, compared to AFC West... The next Eagles game is against the Giants. They next Cowboys game is against the Broncos. I hear a tie coming in. But still... 2 - 3? That's not very good. Though, all of the coming Eagles games look like worse teams, so we'll see how that goes.

I mean... If Killersup wants to trade for my Cowboys or Bills... :3

Anyways, yeah; very interesting lineup for 4-0's.

Not like it really matters, since the Buccaneers are on BYE week anyways.

Also, people picked up BYE teams lawl

But but they got their ***** kicked. Anyway I assumed so seeing how you didn't respond. That is why I traded the Cowboys for the Redskins.


It's strategy. They are doing pretty good, and besides, the bucs are failing big time.

Hit enter by mistake...

Jeol, you're going to lose. Those four points make a huge difference... I guess you might get lucky.

I don't care. I lost a point a week the last four weeks on the buccanneers. Switching out the teams that go on bye just so you can get more points should be against the rules.

Why should it be illegal?

I think it's more strategy - either you can trade out a team and get points, but you might not get the team back and, depending on how well the other team does, you might end up with loss. On the other hand, you might pick up a better team, but if they haven't been on BYE you might suffer later.

It also proves an advantage to other players who are willing to trade teams who might lose to a team on BYE, but that team turns out to do very well coming out of BYE. It's the same reason as trading a team who's going against an undefeated team.

In that case, I should complement for good strategy picking up the Vikings on BYE week. I never really thought about it in that case.

Like I said, it all depends how well I trade up :3

Sorry I meant 3 teams. jeol please pick 3 teams. ill give you until saturday night for picks.

Why should it be illegal?


jeol is right. You can trade your team out for a pool team during your teams bye week however you take the risk of potentially losing the team. Think of it like this: say if the Broncos had a bye week this week and I traded them for a pool team. If your the first person to see this wouldn't it be smart to take the Broncos even though you had no chance of gaining a point this week.

Tbh working the bye weeks could be game changing. Three points is a big deal. Even more important then playing the pool teams.

Jeol, please! Do not take the steelers. The Browns have control of their division. THE BROWNS JEOL. Please jeol, change your pick to someone else.
