O.K. So I have a somewhat complicated question that pertains to my strategy...

Of the playoff teams, I have not used Chicago, New York, and Washington.

In Week 9, I used Carolina, Seattle, and Jacksonville.

Now, I can choose between both Car and NY, Wash, and Jax.

IF I take Washington, and both the Skins and G-Men win:

In the next round Chicago would play New York, two teams I haven't used at all. Would I be limited to those two teams, since they play each other and I don't have to go back in the schedule for more teams? Or would I keep my Week 9 options that I had in the previous week (Car, Sea, Jax)? I would much rather take Seatle than have to choose between the Bears and Giants.

So, in essence, once we gain the option to use teams previously picked, do we keep that throughout the playoffs? Or is each set of available teams reviewed on a week-to-week process?

It's on a week-to-week basis. If Chicago plays New York and you have never picked either team before, your week 9 picks will not become available to you, even if they were available a week earlier.

Thanks. That seals it for me.

A question...

my available teams for this week are Pittsburgh, Denver, and Carolina...

but shouldn't they be Denver, Carolina, and Seattle since I didn't use Pittsburgh until week 17?

Is it because I used Seattle last week? I thought it didn't have anything do to with it because you have to have the "one game where you can choose either team" and it would be the Seattle-Carolina game first for me...

or am I wrong?

Good question; looks like the rules were a bit ambiguous.

The teams available to you are correct. Teams become available again starting with the team chosen least recently, etc., with the most recent pick becoming available last. Since you chose Seattle last week, the other three teams became available first.

So is there a new icon for it this year? I never even competed in this last year, but I was apart of wicked weekend for the dark side.

Dunno yet. But if there is, it'll deplete the old one, so you won't have once icon of each, you'll only be able to "upgrade". ;)

I like the old one. But it does look like a poker chip.

I wass just wondering, since that the lifesaver doesn't seem relevant to the new name. Maybe some brainstorming can go into effect to come up with something that relates.

Well, actually when I think about it it relates more to the new name than to the old - at least where something melts, there's always water. ;) But I also have some melting ice cube icons somewhere which should work reasonably well.
