    Has anyone contacted snowdog about this? I mean nicely and innocently asked him for clarification?

    It's possible he's not fully aware of what is happening although I admit i don't quite understand what is going on.

    Let me know. I'd be happy to email on the team's behalf, but someone will have to bring me up to speed on the details of the situation.

    Ok, one game that we are playing is called Survivor. Basically, about 60 of us played.

    You pick a team each week that you think will win. Only one team.

    Once you pick a team (e.g. the Titans) you cannot ever pick them again. So if you guess a winning team, you survive to play the next week. Losers are out.

    So after 12 weeks DJzielen and I were left. I had the Giants and Chargers. He had the Giants, Chargers and Eagles. So we both picked the Giants and lost. So techmically per the rules below we tied. But Snowdog brought us back to life. Problem is I was out of teams but DJzielen can still pick the Chargers.

    So I kinda got screwed but I can understand that it was just a judgment call by snowdog. Nothing personal.

    Anyhow, pf.com will win the GROUP picks game and Nemo won survivor earlier this year so our basketball forum looks damned brilliant on Football. All is good. No hard feelings.


    Rules for the Survivor Game
    • Deadlines are 1:00 P.M. est. 1st game of the week
    • Each team can be picked only once
    • Previous weeks must be completed
    • Pick one team each week
    • If they win you advance
    • If they lose you die
    • If they tie you advance
    • If you forget you die

    So Snowdog is the owner ?
    Wait, "if They tie you advance"
    That would be the teams playing not the survivors.
    Giants lost.

    I'm taking Steelers but might flip a coin for the other one. A little ironic that both Eagles & Cardinals had their bye in week 7.

    I'm thinking Eagles for sure.

    Not sure on the other game, but took Pitt.

    Right. But DJ DOES. And he has the Eagles. So if we are both alive today and both die today and snowdog brings us back... and neither of us have anyone left then don't we tie?

    Yeah, you don't even have a pick. How is DJZ not the winner?
    Don't even go there.

    Let's call it 21-6 with 4 minutes left in the second quarter.
    I sure hope they hold on. It will make my Super Bowl choice easy...:love:

    I already told you, it doesn't matter. No money involved and nobody really cares.Nobody outside of this forum has any idea who I am. So like, what? Maybe 10 people are even aware of it.

    But technically, we both lost last week per the RULES.

    YOU lose YOU die.

    He changed them after the fact by bringing us both back.

    So yeah, I will go there. But if I really cared I would have emailed him. It doesn't matter. I lasted right to the end and had fun.
