I didn't get to watch cuz I'm at work but it looks like it was a fun game to watch. I'm glad the Chiefs finally won. I think anyone who isn't a hardcore Niners fan was probably rooting for the Chiefs to win this one. I was anyway.

So did Tom Brady confirm that he'll be back in uniform next season?

Congrats to our winner and thanks for another fun year!

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.

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!"

It’s rigged. Ha.
Thx DocX for another great sporting event. Gambling without losing money. That’s a win. As I say at the end of every season, “Wait til next year”. Go Cubs.

Hmmmm . . . my problem with that is Perpetual Losers like, well, you [Stop that! – Ed.], well myself other years could just bet everything to fuck with all of the leaders. Now the ones who picked wisely/lucky all during the season face the fear of having to risk all of that because someone with a 20+ deficit decides to "bet it all."

However, I do see the desire to keep things competitive within reason "'til the end."

That is my interest. If a variation will accomplish the same, maybe some other idea. My envisioning of this method was sort of the idea that managing to collect both Super Bowl teams gets you into "Final Jeopardy" as it were. But I think you could be right that a 50/50 chance puts too much pressure on the leader, who should have an advantage.

I'm not endorsing the idea, but if we did go that route, I think there should be a limit to how much you can bet (25 maybe). If there were a way to make a sealed bid, it might add a bit more drama. Might be doable with PMs. Unlike other weeks, everyone's pick for the Super Bowl could be a secret pick. We'd have to draft someone to be the "designated custodian of the Super Bowl picks" or whatever, particularly if Doctor X is in the lead or in the running to win. Like, it could be whoever is in last place or something like that, so that knowing other's picks doesn't really help them.

I am interested in the final scores, if that is coming. And the movie pick!

Been thinking on the latter point for some time.

Will make a decision this weekend.
