2016 POTTED PLANT MEMORIAL NFL POOL

Recommended Posts

9be3100e08d00dfb54e062dfa66a7475.jpg

Here we go again guys! The 2016 NFL season is upon us and it is time to get the gears in motion for our annual football picking contest...with a tip of the hat to our departed Led Zeppelin and New Orleans Saints loving soul, Brett Godwin.

Last year's regular season champion was apantherfrommd. The playoff champion was paul carruthers. We had 15 participants last season, but a few people have disappeared and I wonder if they are coming back...Anjin-san, Bong-Man, Steal Away Now Baby Rose.

Anyway, there have been some new members that have joined the forum recently and if you are reading this, you are welcome to join the pool. It is free to all.

You know the drill...I post the upcoming week's schedule of games and you pick the team you think will win each game. No late picks. Once the game has started, it is too late to put your pick in for that game.

Remember there are Thursday night games every week of the season. I had to chase down quite a few of you last year for your Thursday picks. Make sure you pick every game. Police each other...if you notice someone has missed a game let them know. I cannot be on here 24/7 checking everyone's picks so I may not catch your mistake in time.

Good luck to all and as always, this is all in good fun and spirit. No fighting or trolling allowed.

Cannot wait to see what fanciful names jabe comes up with this season.

Hey, sorry to butt in but can you please clarify?  Who is your team?  I know Walter is Dallas and his father was Bills like me, great man.   But you?  I now you are a Rangers and Dallas Stars fan, and Texas Rangers.  But football?  And how can any of you be "suffering".  For Gods sake we are the ones that missed the fucking field goal

Well you did throw some "Love" back our way by picking us at Baltimore.  But how wise is that Chief?  So who is your team?

Thanks Walter. And thank you for clarifying zepscoda's team for me. I had a feeling it was not Dallas but was not sure. The fact that he lives in the Dallas area and roots for their teams in other sports confused me.

And jb126 is stuck at work so I am posting her pick...she picks Camolina.

That gives us a Baker's Dozen so far...13 people. Reggie, Steal Away Now Baby Rose and Anjin-san have left us, I guess.
