    Each week, you need to select one team to win its game. You don't have to cover the spread and there is no limit on the number of times you can pick a team throughout the season. You're allowed to pick a team even if someone else has. If your selected team wins the game, you survive to pick again the next week. If they don't, you're eliminated.

    However, certain teams will be excluded, based on who's the biggest favorite based on the official Las Vegas NFL lines. I will be using Football Locks for the lines.

    http://www.footballlocks.com/nfl_lines.shtml

    Teams who will be excluded (By week)
    1-3: Biggest favorite
    4-6: Top 2 favorites
    7-9: Top 3 favorites
    10-13: Top 4 favorites
    14-17: Top 5 favorites

    Week 1 Restricted Team: New England Patriots (-16.5)

    If you do not pick this week you are excluded from ever participating this season. If you miss a week or a deadline you are automatically disqualified. Your first pick must be in by 6:00pm (EST) Thursday night, and a hour before the first game each week after.

    No money involved, just thought it'd be something you can easily participate in to see who's the board ultimate survivor. You win bragging rights and a glorious MS Paint award certificate.

    Again, you just need to pick one team a week. Godspeed.

    Hey Patsfan24 you are still here. I thought with your poll disappearing that maybe you would have been made to disappear.

    Keep Posting!

    I'd like to suggest a mod who can re-edit Disco's OP throughout the season make a master list of everyone who enters and then re-edit it every week to cut the people who didn't survive. That way we can clearly see what's what without going through 40 pages of posts. I realize this is sort of a pain in the ***** request so if it doesn't happen I understand, just a thought.
