"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Looks like SF is taking a few pages out of the Pats AFC Championship playbook.

Granted, the wrong pages.

Drive killing turnovers. Now I STILL maintain Ridley was "down" but if he was not down, the SF player certainly was not down. Nevertheless two horrible interceptions--without even the excuse of a tip.

SF did get screwed on calling the receiver "down"--21-10 is very very different than 21-6.

ANOTHER IDEA

From Radrick--I mentioned I have been disappointed with the Dipshit Bonus since, through no fault of the players, we have situations where the game is "won" before the playoffs. What is the point when you know someone has one by the Division Round.

So the idea we consider was if you are in the Dipshit category you get a choice:
  • 1. Take the 6 point DSB
    2. Pick the Loser of one of the games
If you pick correctly you get a "bigger" bonus . . . 10 pts? 15 pts? If you do not you get nothing. You still get the other points for owning a team that wins a playoff game, of course.

Take current situation: Mordread can sit fat and happy unless izittrue decides to pick a loser. Of course, if he picks the same loser nothing is done. Unless, of course, izittrue[/b] waits until just before kickoff to post!

Radrick also suggests a score guess.

Thoughts?

I like the first idea a lot.

As for the score guess, I think it's a good idea, but could be difficult to track for the duration of the playoffs. No intent to offend, but score tracking becomes more prone to errors the further into the season we go (hell, you're busy, it happens). If you came up with a more precise way to track (e.g. The dreaded MS Excel :x ) it might be more realistic.

This may be better suited for the Superbowl only. You could even have multiple categories to make wagers on (e.g. Coin toss, first to score, etc.) to keep it even more competitive, while not trying to overcomplicate all of the playoffs.

The score would only count for either the Super Bowl with or without playoffs. And then one would have to make it something like guessing magnitude of the a win. I am not that excited with scoring for the reasons you mention (Image) but mainly to keep this simple and fun. Also, what is the likelihood of guessing the exact score difference? I one could do that, one should be in Vegas getting [CENSORED--Ed.].

Not to make excuses, but it has been a busy season--and will be for the near future--I could no longer lounge on a Sunday updating scores.

Of COURSE perhaps Our Omnipotent Admin [PBUH--Ed.] could update the codes so I do not have to keep doing screen shots!

Anyways, looks like Mordread needs to pick a movie. . . .

Wish I had put money to "win" on all the "losers" I picked this year. Of course THEN they really would have lost.

So I was supposed to pick a loser before the game started or is that for next year?
If so I would of picked harbaugh's team to lose which would make me a winner. What?

Oh the conspiracy theorists are all over the place. As much as I hate Baltimore, the only reason SF was at the Super Bowl was because the refs ignored a blatant hold/interference near the end of the conference championship game. Sure, "Matty Ice" may then thrown a pick, but you never know.

Or as one Pats Sports Writer loves to joke, "we are undefeated in games we didn't play!"

Back to the blackout, it CERTAINLY gave SF a chance to "breath" and collect themselves after facing a complete raping. Would have loved to see Baltimore lose simply to have all the Murderer Apologist/Ball Washers cry.

Because what is sports if others do not suffer in defeat?
