Another new rule suggestion, proposed for next year.

Time to Cry (obviously a different name can be picked, that's just a suggestion)
If two or more players are eligible for the Dipshit Bonus coming into the Super Bowl, they may forego both that bonus and the opportunity to Radrick gamble, and instead wager any number of points up to their current total. Chose poorly and lose the declared number of points. Choose wisely and gain that number of points.
I don't think this is a good idea. Solely for the reason that someone who has played "better" than someone else for 20 odd weeks gets busted by a desperate gamble.

Kind of like letting the Browns play in the Superbowl after a 2-10 season if they beat the Patriots in the last game of the regular season.

That's why I suggested a limit to how much you can wager, and also making the picks a secret.

I'm fine with the way it is, but there wasn't really any drama in the last few weeks this year. If you want to keep it "interesting" it's an idea.

Yeah. I mean that's ridiculous.

Cleveland?

I'm coming around to that point. How to preserve the front-runner's advantage but still make the Superb Owl interesting? Eh, it's not like it happens every year that someone's this far ahead.

I got it! I got it!

Moral Victory: Second place loserwinner gets to.... to....

Fuck, I lost it.

But you get the idea--even if the winner is mathematically settled, if there is some token at stake for second place it could increase drama.

OMFG you people are taking this game way too seriously. The game is fine as it is, and Doctor X does a splendid job of administering it!

I would, however, suggest the addition of "Brownnose Points" for those who relentlessly suck up to the dear Doctor.

I honestly don't care. I already wrote him off weeks ago. I think wherever he goes, he's going to prove that being the G.O.A.T. is not enough to win a Superb Owl all by yourself. Perhaps we now enter the Jarrett Stidham era, only time will tell.

So it's official then, Brady has signed with the Buccaneers.

https://www.buccaneers.com/news/tom-bra ... oster-move
Brady replaces Jameis Winston as the Buccaneers' starting quarterback, with Winston also becoming an unrestricted free agent for the first time. In his fifth and final season at the helm in Tampa Bay, Winston threw for 5,109 yards and 33 touchdowns but was also intercepted 30 times, with seven of those returned for touchdowns. Winston was the first player in NFL history to throw 30 touchdown passes and 30 interceptions in the same season.

A thought--could Brady leaving the Pats for the Bucs be an example of a transfer causing the performance of both to increase?

Well this is just insane:

NFL's Deandre Baker and Quinton Dunbar surrender after robbery charge
NFL players Deandre Baker and Quinton Dunbar turned themselves in to police after being charged with armed robbery in Florida.
New York Giants' cornerback Baker, aged 22, who is also charged with aggravated assault, surrendered on Saturday morning, his lawyer said.
Dunbar, a 27-year-old Seattle Seahawks cornerback, later also turned himself in, Miramar Police confirmed.
They are suspected of robbing guests at gunpoint at a house party this week.
About $12,000 (£9,850) in cash and watches worth up to $25,000 are believed to have been taken from a property in the city of Miramar on Wednesday.
Defence lawyers for both players said witnesses had signed affidavits maintaining that the sportsmen took no part in the alleged robbery.
What allegedly happened at the house party?
According to the police arrest warrant, the incident occurred after an argument broke out at the house party, where guests were playing cards and video games.
Baker allegedly took out a gun before he, Dunbar and another man - described as wearing a red mask - started taking valuables and cash from people.
The man in the red mask is not fully identified in the reports. Baker allegedly asked this person to shoot one witness, but the red masked man did not do so.
All three then made off in separate vehicles - a Mercedes Benz, a Lamborghini and a BMW.
