This is the list for the 6th year of the NFL Suicide League. Jonathan (aka KSensei) who has run this for the last 5 years asked if I could take the lead this year, because he has moved to Japan and is more in the know about a completely different kind of football. Again the way it works is: every week you pick one team to win their game--straight up, no points involved. Once you have picked a team for a particular week you can no longer pick them for the rest of the season. If the team you pick wins their game you move on to the next week, if not you are out...completely. Here are additional rules/details:

1. Do not count on reminder e-mails to get your picks in. While I might be able to do this occasionally, I take no responsibility to remember. If you forget when kickoff of the last game of the week happens, you are out. It is best to subscribe to this list so you get notice when new items are posted.

2. Picks should be in before kick-off of the game you are picking. So technically you can procrastinate until Monday night, but that just leaves you the Monday night game(s) to choose from.

3. Changing your pick is allowed, but it must be done before both the game previously picked and the game newly picked start. If you change your pick do so by ADDING A NEW COMMENT to the geeklist item representing the current week we are picking for. Also note that it is a change in pick. If you change a pick by editing your existing comment there is no guarantee that I will catch it.

4. If an NFL game ends overtime still in a tie that is not a win for either team, so any picks for either of those teams equates to a loss.

5. If all remaining participants are eliminated on the same week, or all remaining participants survive through all 17 weeks of the season, the pot will be split equally among them.


To join in just tip this list 5 geekgold. The winner will take all the tips (and anything else the league makes.) I'll be participating too, so you can add an extra 10 geekgold to what you see tipped to this list which I have contributed as the starting pot.

And so it begins. Week 1 is notoriously tough to survive but at least we don't have the replacement refs making it extra wild...

OK, so from what I see the official numbers stand as 316 contestants this year, and 227 that survive into Week 2. So post your Week 2 picks here

Now we have 190 contestants still alive in Week 3. Are some of these picks too good to be true?

Well, 36 people got knocked out along with me. angry So for the rest of you I guess the real question is, do you trust the Rams enough to pick them?

Wow, another 60 folks bite the dust! Well I guess the remaining 62 players are pleased with that. As for this week, I would be genuinely shocked if anyone who has Denver left to pick doesn't use them...

So we have finally dipped below 50 participants left standing. Will anyone with the 49ers left not pick them?

Zero eliminations may be boring, but I think I watched the most exciting Lions game ever! So no complaints from me. 49 still standing...

If only you all had picked the Lions!
Five people left standing into week 11, that's actually less than last year. Good luck, folks:

Right now BGG's image uploader isn't functioning, so I can't upload the pics of the schedule or your used picks. If you need to look at this week's schedule just go here: http://www.nfl.com/schedules/2013/REG16

I'll update this item when I am able to add those images.
