In addition to the GeekDad Fantasy Football league, I am looking to form a GeekDad Survivor Multiplier NFL Pickem league. This is much less complicated and time consuming as compared to the fantasy sports. Each week you pick one winner of a NFL game. The catch is once you select a team, that team may not be used again during the contest.
Being GeekDads, we have to kick it up a notch with win multipliers. For 1 win, you get 1 point. For 2 consecutive wins, you get 2 points for both wins (2 wins x 2 = 4 points total). For each additional game in the consecutive win streak, you get another point (4 consecutive wins x 4 = 16 points). For example, 3 consecutive wins, 1 loss, 5 consecutive wins, 2 losses, 1 win would result in (3 wins x 3 + 0 for loss + 5 wins x 5 + 0 for two losses + 1 win x 1 = 35 points total).
Some Survivor leagues work where once you get a game wrong, you are out of the league. We do not work that way. The multiplier incents you to get multiple weeks in a row. It also keeps everyone in the league. The objective is to score as many points as you can by the end of the season.
Ideally, players will:
We can make a go of a survivor pool that has at least 10 players. Due to the nature of this pool, we can have as many players as interested.
To claim a spot in this survivor pool, reply to this thread expressing your interest and send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your name and contact information, including your location. The list in the thread will serve as a waiting list until you are invited to officially join.
Steve! We want in on this too! By the way, our Geek Mom is a football fan. She would enjoy doing this if we need participants.
GeekMoms are welcome. The beauty of this pool is that your kids could each do their own as well as any GeekMoms.
My girls would love this. Would love to be a part of this.
Is this still going on? how do we do this?
I have a site setup, but I just haven't had time to put a blog posting together to generate interest.
I'll see if I can get a post on the blog to generate some interest in the Survivor Pick Em.
I am going to try to get a Survivor Pickem pool off the ground as well. You are welcome to let your child/children do their own picks and you can pick as well.

We may just look over the list and decide as a group.
