Welcome to the 7th year of the NFL Suicide League. Are you ready for some football?!

PLEASE READ ALL 7 RULES BEFORE PARTICIPATING

1. The cost to play is a one time entry fee of 5 geekgold. Please tip that to the geeklist up here in the header, NOT down on item 1 of the geeklist. If you have not tipped the full 5 geekgold when the game you picked in Week 1 begins your pick is considered invalid.

2. Every week you pick one team to win their game--straight up, no points involved. Once you have picked a team 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. 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, not by editing your old comment. (It would also help if you 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, and you just make my job harder.

6. 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.

7. Last man standing gets the entire geekgold pot. 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. We will NOT be using playoff games to continue, this league is for the regular season only, so don't feel like you need to save up teams that will make the playoffs.

Most importantly...HAVE FUN!!

Another year, another chance for me to lose. Last year we lost almost 30% of participants in Week 1, so watch out.



Please remember to tip your entry fee of 5 geekgold up on the list header (not here on this item) before making a pick.

So, now everything is locked in. We officially have 310 human participants (and one coin) which is only 5 less than last year. Out of those 89 bit the dust in Week 1 which is the exact same number that fell out in Week 1 last year. So be careful making your picks for Week 2...

Well, week 3 was rather uneventful since most of the favorites pulled off a victory. And since no one picked the Monday night game we can get Week 4 started early. We only lost 1 more participant, so 142 of us continue on...

Here are the games for Week 4:

No one picked the Monday night game, so again we have our results early this week. A big chunk of participants lost this week so we're down to exactly 100 people left.

You all may be excited that a big chunk was taken out by picking the Bengals and the Seahawks, but I'm always tickled when someone gets knocked out for picking against my Lions (Sorry, bjlillo). We're now down to 60 people left alive!

Ouch! Well, after losing 18 more players we are down to only 21 participants left. Just when you think the damage will be light for the week, Colt McCoy marches into Dallas and gets an overtime win.

The Rams shocked the 49ers so we lost a few more participants and now are down to 18. Just for a little history: last year at this time we had 45 people still alive going into week ten, and only 5 came out on the other side to make a pick in week eleven. So good luck to you all.

Here are the games for the coming weekend:

This is a pretty epic conclusion, but can you both survive until the last week of the season? Will we split the pot or will one man walk away with the whole thing? We will see...
