The link to last year's

This year's spreadsheet

Thestatusquo wrote:I don't really have any interest in running this, but I do have a ton of interest in playing in one if someone wants to put in the time and do the spreadsheeting and thread locking and whatnot. If no one steps forward, I'd be willing to do it as a last resort.

Here is the link to last years:
viewtopic.php?p=3354997#p3354997

Here is the description of how it works:
What is eliminator?
Eliminator is a "pick'em" style survival game. You choose one team each week that you expect to win. If you are correct you move on; if you are wrong you are eliminated. Should no user survive all seventeen weeks then the user with the least number of incorrect wagers will be the victor. You cannot bet on the same team twice so choose wisely.

You keep saying betting, will this cost me money?
Absolutely not. This game is for entertainment only and does not cost money in any way, shape, or form.

When does betting end?
Betting will generally close before the first kickoff on Sunday. If it's a weird week that has games on Thursday, betting on those specific games will end as soon as they kick off, but other games won't be locked in until Sunday.

I was eliminated and I didn't even bet!
You must bet every week to be active in the primary competition. Not betting will cause you to be eliminated from the eliminator component of the competition. However, the survival component of this game is only the beginning! Your betting record on your profile page the spreadsheet is unaffected by missing bets.

Well I've been eliminated, guess I'll quit playing.
Don't do that! Not only is the game still fun to play, but it's extremely unlikely that a single person will make it through all 17 weeks without a single incorrect bet. Keep playing and watch the competition page spreadsheet to see how you stack up against everyone else.

I can't figure out how to bet!
Just post your bet each week in this thread, preferably in bold so I see it.

Am I betting on a spread? What about confidence points?
No, this is an absolute win/loss game. Spreads are not taken into account. There is no confidence point system since you are picking only one game per week.


And here is week one schedule.
Week 1
THU, SEP 5
Baltimore at Denver (8:30 PM EST)

SUN, SEP 8 TIME
New England at Buffalo
Cincinnati at Chicago
Miami at Cleveland
Atlanta at New Orleans
Tampa Bay at NY Jets
Tennessee at Pittsburgh
Minnesota at Detroit
Oakland at Indianapolis
Seattle at Carolina
Kansas City at Jacksonville
Arizona at St. Louis
Green Bay at San Francisco
NY Giants at Dallas

MON, SEP 9
Philadelphia at Washington 7:00 PM
Houston at San Diego 10:15 PM


You must have your pick in by kickoff of the first round of games sunday. Unless, of course, you want to pick an early game, in which case your pick has to be in before that game.

I don't know how dangerous it is since I'm using this pick too.

It's fun for 2 weeks then you just get annoyed with meaningless picking. Or you are dedicated but pick the Packers week 1 because you are retarded.
