Playing Instructions

The rules are very simple; in fact, there are only three rules.

  1. Pick a NFL team to win each week, and continue to pick until your team loses. In the event your team ends in a tie game, you will be out of the pool. Once you make your selection, you will be able to change it up until 12:00 noon, CST, of the day before the first game of each week.
  2. Place your selection prior to 12:00 noon, CST, of the day before the first game of each week. Usually this is Saturday. If you fail to place your pick prior to this time, you will be given the home team on Monday Night Football for that given week.

If you fail to place your pick in time, resulting in defaulting to the MNF home team, but that's not what you wanted, tough. Your gridiron commissioner or deputy commissioners have the ability to fix your past picks to revise your roster status, but most won't do so unless you've got a darn good reason for missing the deadline!

Each Gridiron (pool) will continue until there is one person remaining, or until the Super Bowl, and those remaining are the winners.
