Just because you called it after the regular season last year when I was already locked as the winner. I haven't done the math, but I think we may be in that situation again. But it can keep going anyway, totally up to you. :)

This concludes the Weekly Football Pool for the 2014 season. The Cumulative Pool will continue through the Super Bowl.

There is now a new competition available to enter: the Playoff Bracket. This is a completely separate thing that anyone who wants to participate can enter, even if they didn't play either Football Pool at all.

If you want to enter it's a simple one act process: send me $5 then fill out this bracket and post your predictions. That's all there is to it, it will require no further action.
AFC:

(Wild Card Round)
Ravens (#6) @ Steelers (#3)
Bengals (#5) @ Colts (#4)

(Divisional Round)
[highest numbered remaining seed] @ Patriots (#1)
[lowest numbered remaining seed] @ Broncos (#2)

(Division Championship)
[lowest numbered remaining seed] @ [highest numbered remaining seed]



NFC:

(Wild Card Round)
Lions (#6) @ Cowboys (#3)
Cardinals (#5) @ Panthers (#4)

(Divisional Round)
[highest numbered remaining seed] @ Seahawks (#1)
[lowest numbered remaining seed] @ Packers (#2)

(Division Championship)
[lowest numbered remaining seed] @ [highest numbered remaining seed]



Super Bowl:
[AFC Champion] vs [NFC Champion]
Scoring: Players will get a point for each correct advancement predicted, regardless of the matchup it was in. For example, if they predicted X to beat Y, but instead X beats Z, they still get the point because what matters is that X won.
If a tiebreaker is needed it will be determined by who predicted the most correct matchups. That is where Y and Z would come in.


Now, this is where things can get a little confusing. Because the Cumulative Pool is still on, the people in that need to continue posting their picks each week, even if they submit a bracket. Their bracket picks cannot count for their pool picks because they may incorrectly predict a matchup. Note however that it is now picks only; there are no more weekly fees or weekly winners.

So:
If you've just been doing the Weekly Pool, you are now done for the year.
If you're in the Cumulative Pool, continue posting your weekly picks as usual, but don't pay anyone anything.
If you are doing a Playoff Bracket, whether you played either pool or not, submit your fee now and post your bracket.

Sorry, I was quite busy this week. :(

It's just you and me in the NFL playoff group, and in the ESPN one KF didn't pick anybody, so it's basically just the 2 of us in that one as well. \:D/
