Nah. Vick's still out. Rams are at home. I think I'm OK. We'll see Monday...

 

I did consider picking the Ravens, though, just for kicks. No way I was gonna touch the Titans game, with so many other poolers picking Tennessee.

 

Gotta keep things exciting, y'know? :wave:

 

[edit] Well, it looks like the Tennessee Troup will advance to the next round. Good job, guys! :thu:

Nah, I don't bother myself with actually watching... :) I just keep an ESPN ticker going; I'm cleaning out the garge this weekend; doing d TLC channel "Clean Sweep" level purge; I actually had a big dumpster dropped in the driveway for the weekend!!! It's 3/4 full!

Cheers!

only a f00 would pick the Shills.

What I mean is that we have a general football discussion thread - this one is for the Survivor pool discussion.

 

C'mon, man. The Shills were going up against the 0-4 Jets. What's not to like about that matchup?!

If I hadn't already used my Buffalo pick, I would have been right there with you, Griff.

Ok, I guess it's my turn. I'm gonna go with Seattle for week 7.
**Standard Disclaimer** Ya gotta watch da Ouizel, as he often posts complete and utter BS. In this case however, He just might be right. Eagles may soar, but Ouizels don't get sucked into jet engines.

Week seven. Hmmm...I think I have a plan here for the next few crucial weeks of the pool. Or I'll just wing it. Either way:

 

Jeff's Week Seven Pick: The Dallas Cowboys.

 

I think a little Tuna might be good right now. :)

Don't want to unterrupt your talks, but I have a question.

 

Do you guys ever watch the American Football games played in Europe? I mean Frankfurt Reinfire, Amsterdam Admirals, Barcelona Dragons etc.

 

Thanks!

:keys: My Music:thx: I always wondered what happened after the fade out?

No.

 

The games are not shown here, specifically to avoid any viewing competition with the US games. The point of NFL Europe was to expand their market without cannibalizing the current audience, so it's unlikely we'll ever have any direct promotion of Europe games here in the US.

Those NFL Europe games are unsellable, too. When I sold airtime at a Fox station, local commercials in those games were largely given away.

 

From the rare shots of the stands, it appears that the games aren't popular in Europe, either. Is that right, Pim?

No Mark, its like the MLS here. A 30,000 crowd is very good, but in a 70,000 seat stadium it looks really bad.

 

NFL Europe has it's fans, but most American Football fans in Europe will watch the real NFL games on TV rather than pay big money to see average performers. Just like the soccer fans who'll watch the European games but wont go to an MLS game.

 

Anyway, back to the Survival game. Congratulations to the consistently correct remaining five.

Popularity is increasing but very very slow. What's the fun of a game when you have to watch second and third rank players with one or two local players?

 

The reason I asked this question is the fact that the Amsterdam Admirals are asking financial support from the community. The Admirals say their games are a promotion for Amsterdam in the U.S.A.

It seems they over estimate the air-play they get...

Dave, what the longest this pool has gone in your recollection? Since I've known you, I remember the year that John Sarappo and Dave Seaton went to week 11 or 12. That's the longest one in my memory.

Mine, too. IIRC, Dave Seaton won in Week 11.

C'mon, Phil. Seattle is the easiest pick this week. Up against a hapless Bears team whose only victory came against an equally hapless Faiders team. Plus you've got Anthony Thomas out of the game, Chris "couldn't outrun a sloth" Chandler in the QB spot, with Marty Booker at 60% - hell, I'd be jumping on that bandwagon right now myself.

Llarion, sorry the Cleveland gamble didn't work out. Of course, this means that if Chicago miraculously comes back wins...I'm the last man standing.

 

Mwa-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! :evil:

 

Of course, that won't happen, but it was a nice thought. :D
