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 . . . quoting the previous year . . . quoting the previous year . . . quoting the previous year . . . quoting the previous year . . . quoting the previous year:

Has anything really changed?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 Los Angeles fansstillnot over last year!

There is a scent in the air. . . .

AND WHAT A SEASON IT IS SHAPING UP TO BECOME! {You're Mom goes to college!} [Shhh!--Ed.]Ramathorn:What's that smell Rabbit?

Rabbit:FEAR!

The rules, as

**Carr**explained, remain:

**T3h Rulz**:

**Rule the First:**"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!

**Rule the Second:**You can pick and change up to the time of kickoff.

**Rule the Third:**"Mulligan!!"

- 1. Regular Season: each player has one "Mulligan." Those with one will have an "*" next to their name in the
*Grid of Despair*. That means you get one chance to pick a second game if your first game FAILS.

You declare it . . . you used it*whatever*the outcome of the first game is.

2. Playoffs?

3. What if Gonna be Absent? For those who are "away" one may post or PM. The second pick must be before the kick-off of that game. So, yes, you can fail on Sunday and pick a later game, even Monday Night Football.

You can post "Imma picking Denver to lose**but**if that FAIL, I am picking the Jags to lose!"

You have used your "Mulligan."

**Supersorrytomakeyoucrybubblebonus**: The team that finishes one place out of a playoff spot pays a 2.5 point bonus.

**ExtraEvidencesDr.XMeaniebonus**: Beating the Patriots pays 1 point.

**DoNotJudgeOthersbyYourStandardsCHARLEY_BIGTIMEbonus**: Beating Pittsburgh pays 1 point.

**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, you get 10 points. If they win, you get . . .

*nothing*! And you will like it!

**In the Rain Bonus**: If you have a team that fires a coach before and including Week 9, you get 10 points. If you have a team whose coach is fired before Brack Fliday [Monday--Ed.], you get 5 points. After Brack Fliday [Monday--Ed.] you get 2 points:

- 1. Rained on by Week 9: 10 points.

2. Rained on before Brack Fliday [Monday--Ed.]: 5 points

3. Rained on on or after Brack Fliday [Monday--Ed.]: 2 points

**shempICan'tWinforLosingBonus**: If you pick a team up to and including Week 12 OR prior to the first team to clinch a playoff spot AND your team is losing by 14 or more points in the 4th quarter yet they win? You get 1 point consolation. And you will like it.

Super Bowl is the cut-off.

**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.

I am ethically and spiritually barred from choosing NE since I would be guaranteeing myself my own "MEANIE point." If the situation arises in the "Playoffs?" where there is no team I can pick, I default to

*either*the

**Dipshit Bonus**or the

**RadrickGamblingBonus**.

**SUGGESTIONS**will be entertained.
