    B The 4th Annual BGO Survivor Contest!

    No food. No water. And plenty of animals ready to make you their dinner.

    WTF? That's the tv show. This is much better.

    Welcome to the 4th Annual BGO Survivor Football Contest!!!!!!!

    Match your skills against all of the other players in the country to see who wins the coveted title.

    Last year, Elephant and Shi no Tenshi battled to a tie to share the crown.

    Who will win the Race For Glory this season?

    The rules are simple. Pick only one team in the league each week to win their game straight up. If you are right, you move on. If you lose, you have one strike against you. Two strikes in a season and you're eliminated.

    One last thing. You can only use each team in the league once during the entire season. And if you forget to take the thirty seconds to make your pick in a week? That's a strike.

    First place will win a great avatar showing off their accomplishment. There will be additional prizes as well.

    So who's in?

    Follow the link below to register. And if you have any questions, please let me know.

    https://football.fantasysports.yahoo...inprivategroup

    Group ID: 10965

    Password: Redskins


    You've got to be in it, to win it.

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

    Previous Winners:

    2014: McD5
    2015: Canadian Hog
    2016: Elephant/Shi no Tenshi

    Here's what I got from the League Settings page:

    Group Settings
    Setting Current Value
    Group ID 10965
    Group Password Redskins
    Start Week 1
    Two Picks Required Starting week 17
    Deadline Sunday at 10:00 AM PST
    Number of Strikes 2 strikes and you're eliminated
    Playoffs No

    link: https://football.fantasysports.yahoo...groupsettings/

    So, yes up till 10 AM Sunday you can change. It also looks like one has to make 2 picks the last week of the season and that we make no picks (playoffs) after that.

    Yes you can. You can feel free to second guess yourself as much as you like until either your game has started, or the early games start on Sunday.

    So, any contingencies being created for if last year happens again?

    I believe I can edit the settings to include playoff games if it comes to that. I think the requirement to pick two winners is to address that possibility. I can also make the requirement to pick two winners start earlier (like the last 4 games of the season) if we want. I think most years a tie is pretty unlikely.

    Only 9 signed up to play so far - let's go people. We'll be awarding a prize of some kind this year to the winner.
