    Just a reminder to everyone that Pick'ems and Survivor start early this week with the Ravens @ Jaguars from London at 09:30 EST on Sunday. Everyone is advised to make picks early or at least save the default home team picks that ROD pick'ems automatically line up with and make 'better' picks later at your leisure.

    What is funny is I don't remember betting under 49.5, but I bet over 48 lmao.

    When I looked, only saw 1 other bet, so thought I never placed any bets at, and did it all again.

    You're 3-8. That's an average score this week. ;)
    I'm 2-9 and I crashed in Survivor as well. :ROFLMAO:

    Later edit: Technically i'm 2-10 as I also took the Bucs. :ROFLMAO:

    I took my first strike in Survivor this week... but week 5 was brutal for Pickem too... two weeks in a row!
    :death:

    This NFL season is shaping up to be a very interesting one with very few (if not zero) elite teams. I know KC is undefeated, but I'm not really fearing any team right now.

    There are probably 10 teams that could sneak in and win it all this year. Rams included :sneaky:

    Obviously, LOTS of time left for teams to get on a roll.

    It's Week 6 of the 2017 season. If you were in Survivor but have been knocked out and you still want more...I have good news. We have opened a NEW single-elimination Survivor that will run from Week 6 to Week 17 inclusive. There's no pressure or obligation on anyone to join or play. I don't expect the take-up to be more than 5 or 6 members. Simply put - it costs us nothing to open a 2nd game. We don't have to put in another copy of the schedule, and we don't have to input another set of results. The schedule and results are automatically taken from the other game. We could have opened this at the start of the season but it didn't seem worth while. Logically members would have made the same picks in both games.

    This is a new game, starting from scratch, with all 32 teams available to pick. It's open to everyone, not just those eliminated early from the double-elimination game. As before, click on Survivor, then Manage your pools, to find the new pool(s) at the bottom of the page. This game is listed as 2017 Last Chance Saloon. Good luck to all. (y)

    Also starting in Week 6 is an experimental game which has been kicking around in my head. It's a REVERSE SURVIVOR where you have to pick a team to LOSE. To make it even more interesting it's AFC teams ONLY! That means you'll have to pick 12 different AFC losing teams so yes, in Week 17 you'll be down to 5 teams to pick from :ROFLMAO:. To give members a fighting chance this will be a double-elimination tournament. Again, there's no obligation to play and I don't expect take-up to be high. It's pretty much a trial run to see if this is worth pursuing in 2018. If you're up for a laugh then feel free to join me in my madcap experiment.

    Rules:
    I can't post the correct NFL match-ups on this game because that would allow members to pick all 32 teams rather than just AFC teams, (which is a big part of the challenge). I will be posting the games as (insert AFC team) @ Atlanta Falcons in alphabetical order of AFC teams. To stop anyone getting a free pick with the Falcons the game will start with 'fictional' Week 5 Atlanta Falcons @ Atlanta Falcons. Pick either Atlanta Falcons, i'll settle Atlanta Falcons as a winner, and from Week 6 onwards Atlanta Falcons will be an option you can't pick. If you don't pick Atlanta Falcons in Week 5 - well then you'll lose a life. Because I won't be posting actual games as a schedule i'll close all the pick options at 13:00 EST on Sundays. Obviously Thursday and Saturday games will close at the correct times but trying to get all the times right will just increase the chance of an error. This should also allow me to post the rest of the 2017 schedule and then forget about it. This is a trial game and it's just for fun. Please treat it as such.

    There are no prizes, ROD$, or banners for the winner(s) of the 2 new Survivor games. There are no playoff tie-breakers should there be multiple survivors.

    Good luck to anyone joining in and keeping me company.

    The initial version of the AFC Weakest Link - Reverse Survivor has been deleted!

    There was a problem caused by having 2 weeks open at the same time. The purpose of having a fictitious Week 5 was to remove a bogus NFC Atlanta Falcons option so from Week 6 onwards I could list all AFC teams, (that were not on a bye-week), against ATL. Not picking in fictitious week would have meant that week being treated as a missed pick which in Survivor is a strike/losing pick.

    A NEW version of the game has been opened starting from Week 6. As before all AFC teams will be listed against ATL. You can now pick ATL, but it be settled as a strike/missed pick. All members are welcome to join this trial game. The normal single-elimination Survivor due to start in Week 6 is also open for anyone wanting another crack at Survivor.

    Good luck. (y)

    The Week 7 game Cincinnati Bengals @ Pittsburgh Steelers has been moved from the 13:00 EST slot to the 16:25 EST slot. I have changed the times on both Pick'em and Survivor. It has altered the order of games for Pick'em but not for Survivor. This shouldn't cause any errors on either game. However, if you have made picks on Pick'em I would advise you to edit them and then make them again.

    Just a reminder to all that there's an early game in London on Sunday. This game is in all ROD Pick'ems and Survivor contests. You are advised to make a pick on this game on Saturday to avoid missing out.

    Also a reminder to UK members that UK clocks go back an hour tonight - so all games start an hour earlier than normal.

    The Buccaneers @ Dolphins game was missing from the Week 11 boards and there was a team error on the MNF board for Pick'em. These errors have been corrected as of 13:30 EST Tuesday 14 November. If you have made picks on Survivor or Pick'em prior to that time on ANY of the afternoon or night games please change your pick on all of those games to the other team, save it, change it back to the pick of your choice, and re-save it. Not doing so will result in your pick on the Bills @ Chargers game being read as Bengals or Broncos and it will automatically give you a loss when settled on Tuesday.

    Attention.

    There was an error on the Week 11 schedule for Survivor and Pick'em. I temporarily closed both boards so I could correct the schedules. This has resulted in a system error on Survivor and it has given everyone a loss. Survivor does not have a roll back, undo, or override facility and this has ruined the game. I can only apologize for this unforeseen outcome. I will talk to @CGI_Ram to see if there's anything we can do but to be honest I don't think there is. I take full responsibility for this and apologize unreservedly.

    Hopefully @CGI_Ram has found an override solution and is manually resetting the system to the following:

    If you believe that information to be incorrect can you please let us know. Thanks.
