With that in mind ...


Picking winners is hard. That means that picking losers is easy, right?

Let's find out!


This is the first-ever NFL Necricide League. In a typical Suicide League, you need only pick a single winner each week (never repeating) until your pick loses and you get knocked out. Here, the rules are exactly the same, except your goal is to pick a single loser each week (again, never repeating) until your pick wins and you get knocked out. [Ties knock you out, in case there was any question about them.]

I see no reason to change any rules that Ben Lott uses in his excellent Suicide League, so here are the rules:


PLEASE READ ALL 7 RULES BEFORE PARTICIPATING

1. The cost to play is a one time entry fee of 5 . 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 lose 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 loses 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 loss for either team, so any picks for either of those teams equates to a win. (The actual teams should be so lucky.)

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!!

Continuing the blatant plagiarism of Ben Lott, here's the first week's schedule:



One last reminder: pay the 5 entry fee to the list header, NOT to the Week 1 item.

Only one player was knocked out in Week 3, betting against the Steelers. Eleven others got taken out in Week 4 for betting on Pittsburgh, as they fell to Tampa Bay. It was the first win of the season for the Bucs, and couldn't have come at a worse time for a number of players.

26 remain for Week 5:

How 'bout them Cowboys!

Dallas's win at Seattle took out 11 of the 14 players who were knocked out in Week 6; the other 3 were fit to be tied after the Bengals failed to get the full 'W' against the Panthers in the closing seconds of OT.


11 players remain for Week 7:
