The NFL "Sorry to Make You Cry" Challenge IX

Postby Doctor X » Sun Sep 01, 2013 9:56 pm

From The Office of the Two Time Grand Champion

"The merciful and compassionate!"

And this is how I began last year quoting how we began the previous year . . . quoting how we began the previous year . . . quoting how we began the previous year quoting how we began the previous year . . . quoting the previous year:

There is that scent in the air . . . the scent of Dolphin failure! The scent of Chicago not having a quarterback! The scent of San Diego fans still not over last year!


Has anything really changed?

Chicago still does not have a quarterback, San Diego fans are still upset, the Dolphins still suck, Buffalo--not content with having a losing season, decided to pay millions to have Team Obliterator finish the job so they can move the team to Saskatchewan.


Chicago still does not have a quarterback, San Diego is crying, the Dolphins suck, and Buffalo--not content with a losing season--decided not to have a quarterback. Rumors the Fenway Ball-Girl is playing:

Which is . . . an improvement . . . for Buffalo.

There is a scent in the air. . . .

Ramathorn: What's that smell Rabbit?

Image

Rabbit: FEAR!


In other words, recovering from spending the evening celebrating the fact know one knows who Bobby Valentine is nor cares, I realized "Holy shit! The season is starting!!"

No, seriously, it is starting!

AND WHAT A SEASON IT IS SHAPING UP TO BECOME! {Ni!} [Shhh!--Ed.]

YES the NFC still sucks, but there are improvements! In fact, just about ANYONE can make the playoffs. Even those cities where people forget they have a team like Seattle and San Francisco.


Okay, maybe not Seattle, but definitely San Francisco provided they can hold on to the ball at least . . . once?


Well, they did. SF nearly beat Team Satan. The Seamen are no longer laughing stocks--though we can still laugh at Pete "NCAA Investigation? I'M SO PUMPED!" Carrol.

The rules as they were with some additions. Without further ado:

T3h Rulz:

"Same idea as last year. Pick a team each week, if that team loses you then own that team and get one point for each regular season win that team gets."

ALL games count: Thursday, Sunday, Day-Night Double-Header to make up for a rain out. . . . I follow the NFL Schedule. So start picking NOW!

You can pick and change up to the time of kickoff.

Bonus Points:

Win a Division: 4 points
Wild Card: 2 points
Win in First Round of playoffs : 3 point
Win in Divisional Round: 5 points
Win Conference Championship: 7 points
Win Superbowl: 15 points

Supersorrytomakeyoucrybubblebonus: The team that finishes one place out of a playoff spot pays a 2.5 point bonus.
This will be based on the semi-official NFL standings.

ExtraEvidencesDr.XMeaniebonus: Beating the Patriots pays 1 points.

DoNotJudgeOthersbyYourStandardsCHARLEY_BIGTIMEbonus: Beating Pittsburgh pays 1 points.

Doctor X is a MEANIE Point: Your Humble and Magnificent Messiah [PBUH--Ed.] gets 1 points if you pick the Patriots to lose and they win.

Dipshit Bonus: 6 point bonus if you own all teams playing in a playoff round (and thus cannot pick a team)--unLESS:

RadrickGamblingBonus: if eligible for the Dipshit Bonus, you can still choose to pick a loser. If the team loses 10 points. If they win, you get . . . nothing! And you will like it!

Playoffs: "Playoffs? Playoffs?!"

If you pick a team to lose IN the playoffs, you get only the season wins and any previous post season wins. No play-off bonuses.

Sorry, no "meanie points" if you did not have the team. I returned the various MeaniePoints to 1 since review of the scores last year shows they would not have materially affected the standings. I also decided not to go with the extra points for firing a coach and general manager, moving a team to Canada, et cetera. I will consider it next year.

I am ethically and spiritually barred from choosing NE since I would be guaranteeing myself my own "MEANIE point." If the situation arises where there is no team I can pick, I default to either the Dipshit Bonus or the RadrickGamblingBonus. Since it is less than the points I would get if I picked NE fuck you, I do not think that would be a problem.

SUGGESTIONS will be entertained.

DO SIGN UP: since the "grid" feature does not exist it takes me a bit to make them. Helps if I know whether or not someone is "in" or "out." Might as well stay "in." It is fun . . . and that is not a request . . . it is an order, actually.

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"
