NFL Loser Bowl 2018-19 (football forum game)


#1081

I agree, things might resolve without any need for help. I think Dan was just brainstorming for next year.


#1082

I think for the first year, keeping it simple was the way to go.

One thought I had was maybe picking the favored team to lose (and they do) gets you two points.


#1083

Yep! I won’t change the rules midstream unless literally everybody wants that, and that’s not the case :)


#1084

One twist, it can only be used when picking a team .500 or better


#1085

Oooh, devious. I like the extension of that rule. You’d probably have to ban it until mid season though. Otherwise everyone would game it within the first three games or so.


#1086

Agreed. I could be convinced that week 5 or later is ok too.


#1087

I like that, that is easy. We could just get the final vegas line locked in prior to the game.


#1088

I don’t think we need it close to the game either. Isn’t one team usually favored early, but the spread goes up and down?


#1089

Yeah, I suppose, unless a major injury happens etc.


#1090

Make it easy, set a minimum threshold. No victory for picking San Francisco as 1 point dogs in Arizona or something, but big points for picking the Bills to beat the Vikings as 7 point dogs.

Like that would ever happen.


#1091

Raiders to lose.


#1092

Raiders to lose to the Chiefs (for the next 5 years or so until Jon Gruden gets fired)


#1093

My Vikes can still win the division. Let me study the odds a bit… I’m thinking Bengals for the loss.


#1094

OAK to lose

I am running out of bad teams. I always hate to pick a home team to lose, but this is my best available option.

The only road team I would be picking to be vulnerable would be the Vikings, but even with the Patriots playing so well at home, the Vikings D is tough, and New England’s is not. Not an easy pick that one.

Haven’t burned up my Raiders pick yet, so here goes.

Raiders lose. Been waiting 13 weeks to say that. It’s everything I dreamed it would be.


#1096

Jumping on the Oakland to lose bandwagon. As far as changes for next year I will go with the flow.


#1097

Sorry for the delay, yesterday was a ‘fly out of O’hare while recovering from a blizzard’ type day.

I’m starting to lose track of who I already voted for. Is that tracked anywhere? Should I have been tracking that?


#1099

Dan has been logging that in the first post


#1100

Washington to lose, but I don’t feel good about it
