Are you ready for some football?
Come one Come all!!!
Big tall short and small!


You are cordially invited to participate in the 3rd annual edition of the Tavern's Rock'em-Sock'em-Pick'em football pool. The overall winner will be the one who picks the most winners by the end of the regular NFL football season. Last year that 'scoundrel' @Crovax ran away with the crown . . . now its time for pay back and to take him down!!!

This year we decided to also add a NEW CONTEST that could prove to be a lot of fun. Based-on the number of people who decide to join, we will randomly compile teams of 3-5 players (all dependent on how many people decide to join). Each week the teams will face off against each other with the lowest score being tossed.

My right-hand man, Agent J, will help organize this contest. Last year, AJ was master of compiling all kind of cool stats at the end of each week and has kindly agreed to do so again. You rock!

Heres the Recap of the AJ's special awards:

Warrior Pick:
is when you and only 3 others make a correct pick (this pick will be percentage-based on how many sign up, if we get to 20, 5 or less)

Loan Wolf Pick: is also a warrior pick but its when you are the only one to make a correct pick

Come Back Kid Award: is when you missed picks earlier in the week but still finish top 4

Titanic Pick – the opposite of a warrior award when 3 members go down with the sinking ship when the rest of use win (all so percentage based on participants)

Ray Finkle Award –the opposite of the warrior pick, if you are the only one to get a pick wrong

Even if you're not a guru please don't hesitate to join in on the fun. Sometimes, eenie-meeny-miny-moe works just as well! Trash talking and fun banter are most welcome (Crovax is a poopie-head!
😜
).

Kindly reply to the thread to let us know if you're in. GRRRRRRRRR GET SOME!!!!!!!!

1st season in...
How many wins a week has succeeded in the past. In other words...is 10 wins a winning total or was this a bad week?

10 wins per week is a total of about 59% for the year. Not too shabby, I forget what the total was last year, I’d be happy with an average of 10.

NFL favorites win 66.5% of the time, so everyone should expect to be at least that good
