Sweet sixteen lawyer-type question...

Postby pawnking » Thu Nov 10, 2005 4:53 pm

Interesting hypothetical...

This year seems to be the year of the favorites, with a lot of folks in the sweet 16 (including yours truly) with more than one pick left. If we make the playoffs with more than one left, what happens if there are only two teams which we have left to choose?

According to the rulebook, if you have only one team available in the playoffs, you can choose anyone you like. I'm just wondering what the rule would be if you have two picks and two teams available?

I'm just askin...

All I know is over 30 people's lives hinge on a Houston loss this week. What sweet justice that would be to all you funless people who thought you were picking the "easiest game" this week! I'll be maddly rooting for the Texans to bomb it deep to Andre somehow even if Carr has .832 seconds to pass on every play that should be all Andre needs to get open.

Yeah and all you Indy people can root for my Giants to lose this week but I think about 3 people total picked the Giants to win over Minnesota at home. That was a bit of a suprise, I guess people want to save the Giants and their insanely tough schedule.

:-t Now it's time to look for a lucky ladder icon or blackjack card. Must admit I did pretty good though having 1 pick for 7 weeks, and this was my first time playing the game. It was very fun and I'll look to be back next year!
