Sure for fun only. However would a deathmatch be better? Each week we pick the winners. You lose one and you are out?

Pool or Deathmatch? What do you guys think?

I don't exactly understand how the message board deathmatches work.:embarrass

Basically you have to pick all winners each round. If you lose one game you are out. The goal is to advance all the way to the Super Bowl. The eventual winner has to pick all winners each week and eventually pick the SB champion.

Most get eliminated the first week because there are more games to pick. Some years I have done this no one goes all the way. Obviously the hardest part is getting past the first week.

Well, I don't know what everyone else thinks - but this has got to be one of the most unpredictable playoff brackets EVER. I think pretty much everyone will be gone after round two, LOL.

Sounds good here Hookem. I guess using this thread for both pool and deathmatch would be confusing? That might be a bad idea, but if not I'd be glad to help if needed. Either way I'm in and will pick by Saturday. :cowboy1:

Yeah, this thread was just meant to throw the idea out there and see if there is any interest. I'll start one thread for the Deathmatch and another thread for the pool.
