JP's 2008 NFL Survivor

Please forward to anyone who may be interested.
Cost for each game is $50.



Send to:

111 Topaz Cr

Canfield OH 44406


2008 RULES
NFL SURVIVOR
1. There is a $50 entry fee, payable before any picks are made.
Winner takes all.
2. You must pick one NFL team each week and it must win outright (tie games lose). No
pointspreads are involved.
3. You may take any one particular NFL team only once during the entire season.
4. When you lose, you are eliminated. The last player remaining wins.
5. If in any given week all remaining contestants (two or more) get
eliminated, those contestants have no choice but to continue, still unable to choose a team
previously chosen, until one winner remains.
6. If after the last NFL regular season week there is more than one
contestant still alive, those contestants split the kitty equally.
7. All games played during the weekend (Thursday through Monday), are considered equal. In
other words, a player eliminated on Thanksgiving Thursday does not
lose to a player eliminated four days later on Monday night.
8. To make a selection, you must submit a pick in this thread by noon each Sunday. If there are Thursday or Saturday games
where you want to pick a team, you must submit your selection before kickoff.
9. If you fail to post by noon Sunday you will be automatically be given a default pick. The default selection will be the Monday Night game underdog. If there is more than one game on Monday, the default pick will be the largest dog that night. If you have already used the deafult team, then you will be eliminated.
10. Selections will be available on the website for all to view. Once we get down to a few teams, you will be able to post your pick privately. More on this later.
11. If you have any questions about your status you may call or e-mail address and we will get back to you.

I'm easy money, as evidenced by the MLB Pick'ems. Give me a day or 2 to think about it, but I'm likely in for both.

Jason, I suggest you adding to your handle to avoid confusion with other JVs. Changing to J Van


Charlie and Dirk: Suggest you get city names out of your handle so your picks aren't read as Baltimore or Pittsburgh.

Chip: I want to verify that it was Chip G that submitted picks. If so, please use the G. We have another Chip, too.
