Alright kids... one last "fantasy" pool.

I know there was talk of one (http://planetsteelers.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=594&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&hilit=suicide&start=45), but, i never saw one pop up. Perhaps I missed it, but, if not, here goes.

for those who don't know...

You pick the winner of one game a week. If they win, you move on to the next week. If they lose, you're out. Last man (or woman) standing wins.

I didn't study the rules, but, in many pools, you can only pick a team once.

You must have been really wasted that day to not remember it. It took place after Ben's first start at Heinz Field, the game in which Polamalu sealed the deal by intercepting former college roommate Carson Palmer, and bowling him over on his way to the end zone. After vanquishing the Bengals, Maximus came out and killed an actual Bengal tiger, then waved his own Terrible Towel in triumph. Good stuff.

Question... we don't have to make the first week's pick until the next week, correct? Just asking because I'm the only one that's made a first week pick thus far. I'm on Asian time so being on the other side of the world, we're a week ahead of everyone else. :lol:

SMG, I hope you're not kidding. It's definitely one of their better songs. Anyways...

Yes, discovered the three former Celtic Frost roadies from Switzerland back in mid 1990 or so. Picked up a copy of "Mental Vortex" when it came out and was hooked ever since. That album contains probably one of the top five cover tunes by ANYONE, but that's for another topic. Been praying for a reunion since 1995, but doesn't look like it's happening. :x

I have no clue. When I log on all I see is my week one pick and nothing else listed in everybody else's column. Maybe you're right and nothing is revealed until after the fact. That would suck if that was the case.

Well, if it makes you feel any better, I've got the Eagles over the Rams. I thought about taking the Bengals or the Lions, since they are facing rookie QB's in their first NFL start, but I hate taking road teams in suicide pools, especially teams as bad as Detroit and Cincy. For now, I'm going with the strategy of saving some of the elite teams for later (of course, that could always backfire with me getting bounced early, but that's a risk I'm willing to take at this point).

I took the Eagles also because they are home and I am saving the "elite" teams. I am sure there will be a week that we will all be picking from the 49ers, Lions and Dolphins...i hope not...

interestingly enough, only 2 of us took 'em...

I took the same approach. Let the QBs get un-rusty and save those two teams for later in the year. As for Pittsburgh, I was saving them for this week. It will be much sweeter advancing to week 3 knowing they stomped the Stains.

Hmmm...SoD...who you going to pick? I wanna copy. :D
Ancient chinese secret...
OK, I'll give it to you. St Louis...

Although I realize you are joking, some dude where I work actually picked the Chiefs last week in our office suicide pool. He vowed to pick whatever team was playing the Raiders (unfortunately the Chiefs are actually worse than the Raiders). I should go and formally thank him for his $5 donation to our pot.

USC can beat the Chiefs right now. It doesn't help that KC is starting like 30 rookies.

Yup...that was free money. In that pool, we start out with 32 people at $5 a head, so it is a winner-take-all $160. I came in second last year (You'll get nothing and like it!). :lol: This week, we also lost one to the Saints, two to the Jags, and five to the Seahawks. 23 people still alive.

I'm in this low budget/high volume suicide pool. It is run by 2 guys and they just use a pretty simple site to run it, its mostly done word of mouth here around columbus, but has grown to like 1500 people. (After two weeks HALF the pool is out!!!) You however get to pick a team even though you've picked them in weeks prior, and it keeps going into the playoffs if there are still people around. Its $20 a pick so a huge payday! Me and my 3 friends each buy a pick, and have a panel vote on "our" picks. Argue over email all week about what teams we are picking with our 4 picks.

I'm ashamed...I was lured by that -12...and at the last minute switched from Tenn to the Pats. Y'all should disown me. :(

You had a little more breathing room than my Bills pick, which required a frantic comeback at the end to keep me in this thing. Raiders suck.

Ruthless we had the same pick for the 3rd week in a row. Bills pulled it out for us...!

Next time, at least put your hand over your paper when you are writing your answers. You make it too easy to copy! :lol:

Sheik, my similar-picking brother...did you get suckered in by the Broncos pick?

You forgot rule #1 for suicide pools:

Never pick the visiting team in a division rivalry game, even when the home team is winless and the visiting team is undefeated.

I got by with Carolina over Atlanta (a division game too, but I picked the home team).

I think it is down to just me and kennyes.

When I win this thing, one of you has to yell "Oh my god, you killed kennyes!"

And then another has to chime in with "You bastard!" (actually, since most folks on this board tend to be amused by Johnny Dangerously, I'll settle for "You bastage!") :lol:

I severely goofed. C'mon though...the Chiefs? And don't give me the "Arrowhead is a tough place to play" crap. The supremely dysfunctional Raiders went into Arrowhead and dismantled the Chiefs. How can Denver fall to pieces like that? Idiots. Unexplainable.

So once somebody wins the pool...does it start over? I never did one of these Yahoo ones before...

We had 8 people left in our office pool. All 8 took Dallas, in spite of Cincy's elite QB Carson Palmer.
