    I was wondering if anyone would be interested in this.. This is where you are allowed to pick one different team per week to win the game outright and if you win you go on to the next week. So in other words if I picked the Steelers to win week one and they won, the next week I'm allowed to pick another team other than the Steelers to win and so on..

    I can set it up for 1 strike and your out, 2 strikes and your out and 3 strikes your out..


    I'll see if there's any interest first before I set it up since we've never done this before as a group so respond if your interested..

    Allright.. I set it up.. One strike and your OUT... Let's see if we have any geniuses here.. :lol:

    You must have your pick in 5 minutes before the 1st game played in the week. So that's Thursday for the 1st week. and then Thursday every week Thanksgiving and after..

    Disregard ScrewupByCommish member.. I accidently used my old yahoo email address to set the league up and I can't get rid of it since its the "commissoner"..

    DallasBuff signed up before i could create a new league under my yahoo mail that I used for the other 3 fantasy games..

    I'll just pick the Lions in week one so its eliminated fast... :lol:

    I'll join. It's the only kind of fantasy football I like anymore. I once made the final 5 in a 150+ group a few years ago. It's a lot tougher than you think it is to win.

    Looking at the week 1 schedule, I'm sure just about everyone will be going with either NO or Baltimore.

    Are we restricting how many times we can pick a certain team during the year?

    Yep. See if you picked the Steelers in week one to beat the Titans and the Steelers won, you would advance to the next week and could pick any team other than the Steelers. And then the next week u pick the Eagles over the Saints and the Eagles won.. Then you would advance to the next week and could pick any team EXCEPT the Steelers and Eagles.. And then it keeps going and going until you lose a game..

    In. ...and yeah, only picking once is going to be tough... it's almost like you have to plan out the entire season but like that will really matter once the season gets under way.

    So, was anybody eliminated? It kind of sucks that we can't see what teams everybody else picked. Or am I missing something?
