Preseason
 
HERE WE ARE AGAIN!! Round 4 for Phil and myself (Shannon), Round 2 for Kerry, Tony, Brad, Ray, Satish, Jay, Alan, and Cody. Of course we are lucky enough to have some newcomers too... Jason, Tanya, and Shyam. Unfortunately, Susan and Beth did not want to join the fun this year, so we have a total of 13 participants -- indeed a dubious number. But that allowed me to compose the individual web pages so that we always have a "Goat of the Week" for the person with the lowest score. Yeah, I suppose it would be nicer of me to make it so that there is a "Winner of the Week" instead, but I want to get this contest off on the right foot. Just like last year, I encourage bragging, antagonizing, and talking smack!

UPDATE!! At the eleventh hour, we have one more participant -- Joe! Be sure to heckle him for coming aboard one day before the season started!

Last year's contest ended up in a tie between Kerry and Phil. In order to avert such a disaster this time around, everyone has to pick a "tie-breaker" team before the season starts. If two people finish the contest tied with the same record, then whichever player's tie-break team has the better record wins the contest. For example, if Tony (picked Rams) and Satish (picked Bengals) are tied, then if the Rams made the playoffs but the Bengals did not, then Tony wins. If Tanya (picked 49ers) and Brad (picked Browns) are tied and the 49ers and Browns both made the playoffs, it would be whichever team got further. If both teams lost in the same round, then I will use the NFL official tie-break rules in order to figure out a winner. And what does the winner get? A $20 gift certificate to wherever I happen to be at when I buy it.

If you need a refresher on the rules, go to last year's Preseason page.
