Welcome to the 3rd Annual Bleeding Green Nation Suicide pool (woo!). For all the newcomers, this is just a game that we run during the season here at BGN. Winners get to feel great self satisfactions and losers feel great shame. Fun times.
A brief history of the brief history of the BGN Sucide Pool:
In 2011 RadioheadbeatlesEagles defeated Gdog2009 in Week 10 to win the first annual Suicide Pool.
In 2012 greenmaestro defeated Bleediots in Week 8 (everyone else was eliminated after week 6 mind you) to win the second BGN pool. We finished that one so fast that we decided we had time to run another pool but greenmaestro won that one too. God you guys sucked that year.
And now here we are for the third year running. For those of you who don't know what suicide pool is, you should probably look it up.
But here are the basics:
- Each pool member chooses one NFL team each week.
- Picks are made "straight up", not using a point spread system (If your team beats the spread but still loses, then you are still eliminated).
- If their pick is correct, they survive until the next week.
- An incorrect pick eliminates the player from the pool for the remainder of the season.
- Members are only allowed to pick a team once per season (if you pick the Packers in week one, you can not pick them for the rest of the season)
- The goal is to be the the last member standing at the end of the season.
- Only use the subject line to make your pick. Thanks.
After each week I will list who got eliminated, who is still in and which teams they picked.
Here are the games for the week.
