I'm sure everyone is familiar with the suicide pool, but just in case here's how it goes.

Everyone picks a different team to win each week

Once you pick a team, you can not pick it again

You must be in the pool with week 1 or you can not join

If you do not make a pick by the start of the Sunday night game, then you must pick a winner for the Monday night game. If you've already picked one of those teams, then you'll need to post for the other team (no it will not be done for you automatically). If you've already picked both those teams, then you are eliminated from the contest.

So...

I pick the winner of any game between two teams, and if the team I choose wins, I win? XTREME SURVIVOR POOL 2829330259

So, there'll be several winners each week?

No, you pick the winner of one game each week. Any game you want. If your team loses, you're out. If your team wins, you survive and move on to the next week. But you can pick a team only once in the entire game. Last man or woman standing wins.

For example:

In Week 1, you pick Steelers over Broncos.
If Broncos win, you're out.
If Steelers win, you move on. But you can't pick the Steelers again.

It sounds easy, but it's not. There's a strategy. You can pick obvious winners early, but that might cost you later. I don't know the schedule, but let's say you pick the Patriots*** over the Rams because it's obvious winner. But then you can't pick the Patriots*** again. So if you pick all the good teams early because they're safe picks, you'll be left picking teams like the Browns and Rams later on. Then again, if you pick a risky game early, you could be out early. Last year, most of us were out of the game by like Week 4.

Here's the thread from last season: http://www.steelersxtreme.com/t655-xtreme-pick-em-game?highlight=xtreme

The past two years I've played this game, I picked the Browns the first week. I got knocked out in Week 1 both years. Here's what I posted after getting knocked out last season:

This is the second straight season I got knocked out in the first round because of the Browns. I assure you next season I will NOT pick the Browns even if they're scheduled to play a high school team.

I'm thinking about picking the Browns again. XTREME SURVIVOR POOL 1664291743
Sooner or later, they HAVE to win an opening game. XTREME SURVIVOR POOL 2087824411

It's actually called a suicide pool. I got the name wrong last year.

We'll keep a running list of participants ...


Truck
Bayz
Wally

And I'm going to unsticky this for now to increase the chances of it being seen. Threads that are stickied are often overlooked (oddly enough).

I actually have something in the works to go with this. Not sure if it'll work or not, but i'll talk more on that soon.

PICK 'EM is a weekly contest where you pick all the games

SUICIDE POOL is one game, screw up and you're out, get lucky and you live to play another week!

Well, because this particular game rarely lasts long, I've set up an ESPN pigskin pick 'em league that you all can join as well. It's free to make an account, and it lasts the length of a season. Team with most points at the end of the season (from correct picks) wins it all! I think it'd be cool to have both pick 'em and suicide pool going this year, with maybe an SX fantasy league if demand is there. I've already created the pick 'em league, and if you want in let me know.

Why don't you start a separate thread on the pick 'em and league and see if they generate any interest. We tried it last year, but the fantasy league didn't work out.

Got truck in the pick em. Fantasy league is a lot more work than many like.

I'm interested in pick 'em, but not fantasy. I've never been in a fantasy league, and I have no intentions of starting now.

Yes, it begins the first week of the season. Technically, you can make your pick now if you want. Just copy the list of players below and add your pick next to your name. Although most people usually wait until about Wednesday or Thursday to make their picks.

The more people who join, the better. A lot of people will get knocked out early. I think we should set a deadline to join though ... especially when we start making picks. Thoughts?
