    Default NFL survivor pool

    Thought it would be fun to get a survivor pool going.

    Group is called Dobber. Password is Dobber.

    Group ID is 33662.

    Deadline isn't until Sunday at 1 p.m., so you don't need to worry about getting the pick in before Thursday's game.

    Top 8 forwards, 5 dmen and 2 goalies count.

    Are we doing the survivor against the spread? I see spreads in there and this would be a new twist that I have never seen. I know I have seen pick em against the spread.

    IS anyone interested in starting a pick' em league to (against the spread or straight up)

    I don't think it's against the spread, but I love spread pools as well. I can set something up. Would you be more interested in a Survivor pool against the spread or all the teams weekly?

    I think pick'em against the spread would be fun. I think Survivor against the spread would be HARD!

    There's a website called bman.com where he posts the spread every Tuesday, and you can create a group to post picks. I can set something up tonight, but we'd miss the Thursday night game, obviously.

    Never having done survivor, is there anything to it other than just "pick a team that wins"?
    Do you have to pick a different team each week, or do you get more points for picking a team with a closer matchup, or am I trying to make it over complicated?

    Once you pick a team... you can no longer pick that team for the rest of the year. There are not any extra points for close games or blowouts... just pick the winning team each week of the season.

    I know, it seems easy... but it is a lot harder than one would expect.

    I think Yahoo has a pick'em that is available against the spread. I was in one last year in Yahoo against the spread...

    That's the little twist I was looking for. Perfect, thanks.

    Wow, glad I read this. I didn't realize that you couldn't pick a team you already picked. Nice little wrinkle. Definitely makes it more fun than just picking the Patriots for an undeafeated season
