foot Second Chance Survivor - Rules

We do this every year. It will start in week 7. You can play whether you played in the original game or not. Multiple entries okay. Each entry treated as completely different entry.

This is a $50 buy-in and 100% of the pool goes to the winner.

Here is how you play

Please confirm payment info. PM for details



To discuss payment arrangements post me a PM and we can discuss several ways for you to get in or do it the way you have recently. Please give yourself time. Other & past methods are available. Please confirm with me first If you played original that method is okay. Get with me early - don't wait until the deadline.



There will be a confirmed entry thread in this section. Only names on that list will be permitted to play. After payment you will be added to list.


Each week you will select one team to win (no pointspreads). If you win – you move on to the next week. Lose and you are eliminated. If you miss a pick you are eliminated. The last lone survivor will win. The contest will run until there is one winner. In the event of a tie game - both sides will be considered a loss.

--------------
starting in week 10 - Each remaining entry will select two teams.

After week 17. Playoffs reset for remaining players.
Entries can vote unanimously to split after week 17)
---------------

The contest will begin the NFL week 7 week of the NFL regular season.


There will be a thread started by Cappers Mall each week right here in this section for you to enter your picks. The thread will be started on Tuesday’s of each week. You must post inside the correct thread.


You must make your picks by Sunday at 1:00 pm EST. The thread may or may not be locked at that time but there will be no exceptions. Picks may not be emailed in under any circumstance. They must be posted in the thread. IF you decide to wait until the last minute to make picks and the web site is down or any other reason beyond our control – you take that chance and again no exceptions will be made. EVEN if you play a late game they must be entered before 1.


You may play any NFL game. If you want to pick a Thursday night game you must play before Thursday. If you play a Monday night game you must submit by Sunday at 1:00 PM EST

You may buy as many entries as you'd like.


You will not receive any reminders. It is your responsibility to make your picks.


You may only use each team one time. Once you use a team you may not use it again and if you use a team twice by mistake it's the same thing as losing.


* Any rule not mentioned here will be decided by Cappers Mall.

All questions and answers may also go in this thread.

What happens to the 19 or so entries that had been marked as confirmed/paid but didn't enter by the deadline of the first week?

Nevermind, you're right. My Excel sheet was summing the wrong cells. I'm a dummy.

Sorry for the confusion.

Question about the rules. If everyone busts out on the same final day, does everyone split? Or do people who only lost 1 of their teams beat people who lost 2 of their teams?

Any chance we could get an answer to this? I'm new to Cappers and can't figure out how to DM NolesFan or Dr. Jack. Maybe someone else can.

I respect Dr. Jack...however, that rule should have been established prior to this contest starting. Just my .02. Bottom line, you lose, you lose, regardless of it's both teams and or just one.

Before I get jumped on here. Even if I'm fortunate enough to win in that manner, that would be nice, however, that rule should have simply been stated prior to the start of the contest. That's all I'm saying.

Best of luck to all that remain.

And to be fair to Dr Jack, I will take his side on this one. It also clearly states

*Any rule not mentioned will be decided by cappersmall

This question came up and the answer to it was not listed in the rules. He had a decision to make and he made one. You could complicate things and say well your 1st or 2nd pick matters more or you could reward someone who picked a winner over someone who couldn't pick one. Personally, I think he made the right decision.

And if you go (2-0) none of this matters anyway.

The rules say:

“After week 17. Playoffs reset for remaining players. Entries can vote unanimously to split after week 17)”

Can we clarify the rules for
If we decide to play in to the playoffs?

Are we still picking two teams per week? Also reset in the playoffs is that each round or only at the start?

And if two teams and only reset at start , do surivivors chop after conference championships, or do we get a reset for super bowl and still pick there (if those are the rules any survivors would have no Suoer Bowl teams left).

Agree with this Prop. Would be really nice to clarify this before it gets down to the wire, so we actually have time to consider the options.

Can we send our last week selections to whomever is in charge of this contest and they can post our plays once the kickoffs begin?

Thank you.

I say this with kind words but Bisky is looking incredibly great heading into the final week. I already know or I at least assume who is 2 teams will be...that said, it's been a fun ride regardless.

The very best of luck to the remaining players who have lasted this long.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!

I don't see any reason to change the rules or the way the contest has been working for the last 10 weeks. Why start doing it differently now?

As it was pointed out to me by Wayne. The rules say; * Any rule not mentioned here will be decided by Cappers Mall. Thus the question!

With all due respect, I feel like that line is included in the rules only to resolve ambiguities over the rules as written, not so that people can start proposing entire new ones. I think in general it is always best to play the contest to the rules exactly as written. Just my two cents.
