2. Each week, you will select an NFL team to WIN their game. (Point spreads are irrelevant) and a tie is considered a loss. Meaning your team must WIN to continue on to the next week. The team you have chosen can only be used once during your participation in the pool.
3. If you select a team, which you have already used earlier in the year, you are disqualified. (This cannot happen if you make your picks through the computer)
4. If you fail to make a weekly pick, you will be assigned a default pick, which is the pool’s top pick for that particular week. If it happens that you have already used that particular team, you will be assigned the second most popular pick for the week, and so on. If all default picks come up empty you will get the largest spread favorite open to you. Selection to be provided by the pool master, and cannot be challenged what so ever…..
