Default 2018 Double Elimination Reverse Suicide Pool

Returning for the 14th season is the Double Elimination Reverse Suicide Pool!!!

Prior Winners:

2005: Butters
2006: ReserveRage
2007: PosterNutBag
2008: Da Bears!
2009: Kid Rock
2010: Warrior04
2011: Random Poster
2012: Random Poster
2013: manaknight14
2014: Whiskey!
2015: therealsylvos
2016: Ultimate Anyone!
2017: accobra_kid

Rules:

1. Pick a team each week of the NFL season. If they win or tie, you get a strike. If you get 2 strikes, you are out.

2. You may only pick each team once during the contest.

3. If you fail to make a pick, you will get a strike and the team whose 'city' is closest to A will no longer be available to you.

4. A pick must be AO timestamped by 15 minutes before the kickoff of the game the team is involved in to be valid.

5. Do not edit posts with a pick in it. I will use your last valid post as your pick for the week, so if you want to make a change, just make a new post.

6. If I make an error in the official picks/standings post, you are responsible for pointing it out and having me make the correction.

Special Week 17 Rules
If more than 1 person survives to week 17, the following rules apply:

(1) Each player should submit a list to me via PM of all 16 teams they have remaining, in order from most likely to lose to least likely to lose.

(2) Picks are due 1 hour before the first game of the week.

(3) Once the deadline is past, I will post a table of the picks.

(4) There are essentially 16 separate week 17s. For 17-1, everyone's first pick will be evaluated, and you will advance or get a strike. If it is your second strike, you will be eliminated. We then move on to 17-2, 17-3, 17-4, etc until we have a single winner.

(5) If all remaining players are eliminated in a particular round, then no one will receive a strike for that round and we will continue on.

(6) If two or more players survive past 17-16, they will be co-champions.
