This concludes the Weekly Football Pool for the 2016 season. (Winner announcements will be caught up as soon as I can get to them.) 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)
Dolphins (#6) @ Steelers (#3)
Raiders (#5) @ Texans (#4)

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

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



NFC:

(Wild Card Round)
Lions (#6) @ Seahawks (#3)
Giants (#5) @ Packers (#4)

(Divisional Round)
[highest numbered remaining seed] @ Cowboys (#1)
[lowest numbered remaining seed] @ Falcons (#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.


Because the Cumulative Pool is still ongoing, 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 paid or weekly winners, we're just adding to the cumulative tally now.

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.

Ha. ;) A note about that:
Since it was just the two of us this year I'm going to be a really nice guy and only score the weeks we both made picks for the Cumulative Pool so it's still anyone's game. Otherwise it would be pointless and not fun.

That was factored into my prediction. :P I'm pretty sure my correct pick rate was down at least 20% this year.
