    Who wants to be part of one on the forum this year? I posted this in another section but it has not gotten any attention over there. Figured I would try it here.

    Traditionally, a suicide pool is you pick one team per week to win straight up. No point spread, just to outright win. If you win, you advance to the next week. If you lose you're eliminated.

    The catch is that you can only pick a team once. So for example you take the obvious pick in Week 1 and go Baltimore Ravens over New York Jets. Then you can no longer pick the Ravens the rest of the year.

    Kidding about the Ravens being the obvious pick in Week 1, and to be honest there really is no great pick Week 1 this year. Currently I'm leaning towards Titans over Raiders for my big money pool, I just don't trust Vince Young completely. Not many other great options though.

    Just looked at the schedule for week one and I have to give the NFL props as I can see a reason for every team winning and losing. Most years there's at least a game or two that you think is in the bag.

    I am down for this. Anyway we can get a group on Yahoo where they do all the tracking or are we using a thread and somebody needs to track everything themselves.

    OK well I am going to start it then. Picks must be posted at least 15 minutes before kickoff of the game you are picking. If you are picking the Patriots to beat the Bengals week 1, then you must post your pick by 12:45pm est on Sunday. If you are picking the Ravens to beat the Jets as your game for week one, it does not need to be posted until 15 min prior to kickoff on Monday. If you are late you can pick another game, but if you post late and do not change your game, or if you do not post, you are eliminated. Remember, the games are strait up, the point spread is ignored. Only once a season can you pick a team. One loss and you are out. I will try to keep track of everyone who is still alive each week. If I miss your name let me know.

    Yahoo has a site that will do it all for free so you don't have all the extra work:

    Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Survival Football


    It also sends you a reminder email each week so you don't forget to pick. Pretty easy to set up as well. Just a thought

    Basically to win you have to figure out which week the Lions win?
