Sorry to Make You Cry XVIII

Post by Doctor X »

After MORE than a decade . . . of dominance and nearly two decades of Dynasty!!



[gifv][/gifv]

From The Office of the Two Three 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 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 . . . quoting the previous year . . . quoting 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 Los Angeles fans still not over last year!
Well, are they?

Has anything really changed? We could add Saints, Indy, Dallas, and Pissburgh [Stop that. – Ed.] fans.

There is a scent in the air. . . .
Ramathorn: What's that smell Rabbit?

Rabbit: FEAR!
AND WHAT A SEASON IT IS SHAPING UP TO BECOME! {Alcohol!} [Shhh!--Ed.]

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. To clarify if your first game is the last game of the week – Monday Night Football – you can carry your Mulligan over to the following week unless it is that last game of the regular season: you cannot carry a Mulligan into the Playoffs . . . "Playoffs?"

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

    2. Playoffs? http://i170.photobucket.com/albums/u264 ... 9d8ee1.gif

    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."
Bonus Points: :hyper:

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

RadrickGamblingBonus: http://i170.photobucket.com/albums/u264 ... 7ad267.gif 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.

Now:

OK, here is a suggestion: I like the In the Rain bonus, but I think it should be nerfed a little bit. E.g., 8, 4 and 2 rather than 10, 5 and 2? 10 points is a lot.

You can puck . . . YOUR M . . . er, no actually you can.

Tommy wears only the most expensive French perfumes and Italian dresses. And he's not gay; his hands just roam a bit when he's under center.
