hey! once the season gets rolling, we'll simply revert to using the NFL thread. but for the sake of cleanliness and order, we'll use this as the signup thread. and when you signup PLEASE use your UG username. unless you have a hilarious name which i didn't at the time of signing up ...

GROUP ID: 295
GROUP PW: pitindahouse


here's how it works:

each week, pick who you think will win each game. whoever has the best record by the end ... wins ... bragging rights. this is more fun than fantasy football for several reasons:

- takes far less time to do
- we can still keep playing into the playoffs/super bowl
- less cerebral
- still an excuse to be competitive, but more so, have a good time with some guys who love football

also, there's a poll attached to decide whether we should institute ATS betting. for those not familiar with the system, ATS means if the matchup is jacksonville (+3) vs houston (-3), there's a three point handicap. so if the game is houston 21, jax 20 jacksonville would still win against the spread. gnome saying? basically just makes it a little more difficult to pick the "winner".

so go ahead!

Q: OK, so do you care about the labels — nastiest, edgiest team in the NFL?

Jim Schwartz: It's better than the alternative — meekest, least aggressive, softest team in the NFL.

Only because I didn't play. I won the previous year, so logic says I would have won last year as well.


CHAMPION SHOWDOWN TIME!

I'm going to pick the Bills and Raiders to win every game. You two don't stand a chance.

My mom is way too cheap for him to get away with betting such amounts.

Most of the time he'll just bet against the Bills. Then, as we nurse our hangovers from hnic, we take great joy in watching the Bills get dominated and make some money as well.

It is like watching the Lions except it isn't sad when they lose. Well, it is kind of sad, but the fact that Buffalo has gotten close so many times but their city hasn't won anything on a professional level ever is just hilarious. Buffalo is where dreams go to slowly die. I've actually encountered what I assume was an official meeting of the Buffalo Bills fan club. It was 5 ghetto guys who smelt like piss and shitty weed (which, sadly enough, is kind of like wearing expensive cologne relative to the smell of Buffalo itself) standing in a circle of a McDonalds bathroom talking about the game the night before, which the Bills lost (who would've guessed). They weren't even waiting in line to take a piss. They looked dead inside (I know that look, I cheer for the Raiders and Leafs).

Please tell me there is a Bills fan here. I will start posting just to mock him/her (oh, who am I kidding, him) and his TEAM OF DESTINY ruthlessly.
