Thread: Last Man Standing Football Pool 2015

  1. #1

    Thumbs up Last Man Standing Football Pool 2015

    Hey folks -

    It's time for another "Last Man Standing" NFL pool (the software I am using actually calls it a Survivor pool - same thing) for the 2015 - 2016 season.

    It's very easy - Here's how it works

    You pick one team to win each week (no point spreads). If they lose, you are eliminated. A win or tie and you move on. The only catch is, you can't use the same team more than once during the year.

    You must get your pick in by the weekly deadline - before the first game each Sunday. Early games must be picked before they start. All picks will be hidden until the game has begun (for early games) or until the first game on Sunday.

    If you fail to make a pick, you get the team that is the largest favorite for the week (that you have not used already). See pool settings.

    Good luck to everyone. If you have any questions, please contact me via Private Message (PM) or contact us via email () or use the "contact us" link in the menu on the left on www.tsptalk.com.

    Instructions for joining the pool entitled 'TSP Talk NFL Pool'

    ************************************************** *********

    * If you were in last year, you just need to sign in and you should be ready to start. Login here...
    NFL Football Pools: Run Your Football Pool Online. Hosting Survivor, Pick 'Em, and Confidence pools.

    If you’ve forgotten your password, use this link: http://www.runyourpool.com/forgot.cfm

    If your team is coming up as "deactived" just contact me and I will activate it.

    My cost is determined by the number of active teams so any team that rolled over from a prior year that did not pick a team in last year's first week was deactivated.

    ************************************************** *********

    * If you are new (didn't play last year) and are interested in joining the pool, please follow these steps:

    2. Enter the following information:
    a. In the Pool ID box, enter the number 13188
    b. In the Pool Password box, enter 'tspnfl' (That's TSPNFL without the single quotes)

    3. Fill out the form information, including a personalizing and password. (Rest assured, this information will NOT be sold or utilized for spam email under ANY circumstances.) Please try to incorporate your TSP Talk Forum username, if you have one, in your Team Name in the pool so we know who you are... But non-TSP Talk members can join too.


    4. Make your picks, with the ability to change them right up until the weekly deadline.

    It's that easy. If you have any questions, let me know or e-mail runyourpool.com directly at support@runyourpool.com

    ok, i'm in the new pool and logged my steelers pick for week one. it appears they are playing the patriots and maybe just maybe with crybaby cheater brady suspended for fooling around with his balls they might have a shot at it.

    let's get it on!

    The incident vaguely recalled a scene from Pixar's hit 2004 animated film "The Incredibles", when husband Bob Parr—raged to his wife about participation trophies received by his children—that people "keep coming up with new ways to celebrate mediocrity."
    ha! now that's a parenting strategery i can agree with.
