    It's not something we have done in the past, this has always been a winner-takes-all game. And depending on how the playoffs go, it's honestly still anyone's game since the scoring increases here in Pickem as do the real-world NFL stakes.

    That being said, I am working on some fun tweaks to make the game resemble more of an NFL format during the season as well as from season-to-season. So there will be certain benefits to those who finish lower in the standings and wish to continue playing next year (resembling the benefits of having a high draft choice). And I am also working on integrating some other trophies and prizes (cantina-based) along the way instead of just the one Super Bowl Trophy™.

    Hang tight. I like to think we've improved this game as much as we have seen it grow since I inherited it a few years ago. I don't want to over-complicate it but I think we have a solid group of dedicated players here and I also recognize that with how long this takes to play out, there should be some additional incentive along the way!
    :)

    Current Standings:

    1st - @Alamact : 78 pnts (last week: 1st, = )
    2nd - @DarthSnow : 74 pnts (last week: 2nd, = )
    3rd - @Capt. Andrew Luck : 73 pnts (last week: 4th, +1 )
    4th - @Addi Ras : 71 pnts (last week: 5th, +1 )
    T-5th - @Dork Lord of the Bith : 68 pnts (last week: 3rd, -2 )
    T-5th - @Embo and His Pet Anooba : 68 pnts (last week: 6th, +1 )
    7th - @PrincessLeiaCB3 : 65 pnts (last week: T-8th, +1 )
    8th
    - @teline : 64 pnts (last week: T-8th, = )
    T-9th - @Meister Yoda : 62 pnts (last week: 7th, -2 )
    T-9th - @NinjaRen : 62 pnts (last week: T-10th, +1 )
    T-9th - @RockyRoadHux : 62 pnts (last week: T-10th, +1 )
    12th - @TK-1204 : 13 pnts (last week: 12th, = )


    All of the games this week are on Sunday.
    This is it, Cantinamigos. The last week of the Regular Season. After this week forget everything you know; the season starts anew!

    I'm trying to hit as many Playoff Implication Games as possible. Happy Picking*! And, Happy New Year!!
    * Unless you are above or near me in the standings... in which case, may your picks kindly crash and burn. ;-D

    Week 17: Sun, Jan 3rd:


    Sunday:
    Dallas-Rebels.png NY-Walkers.png
    Rebels @ Walkers
    Both the Rebels (6-9) and Walkers (5-10) need a Gungan loss to have any hope of advancing, but they need to win this game first.



    Baltimore-Siths.png Cincinnatti-Zabraks.png
    Sith @ Zabraks
    If the Sith (10-5) can't take care of business on their own against the Zabraks (4-10-1) they will need some help to advance on to the postseason.



    Pittsburgh-Droidekas.png Cleveland-Jawas.png
    Droidekas @ Jawas
    Having locked up their division title, the Droidekas (12-3) will be resting some of their heaviest hitters in a game that is win-and-in for the hopeful Jawas (10-5).



    Miami-Greedos.png Buffalo-Banthas.png
    Greedos @ Banthas
    It's another win-and-in game for the Greedos (10-5) as they take on the Banthas (12-3) who have already clinched a playoff berth and division title.


    Seattle-Wattos.png SanFran-B1s.png
    Wattos @ B-1s
    The Wattos (11-4) have secured a division title and playoff berth but are hoping for more as they take on the suddenly over-achieving B-1s (6-9).


    Arizona-RoyalGuards.png LA-TwiLeks.png
    Royal Guards @ Twi'leks
    Both the Royal Guards (8-7) and the Twi'leks (9-6) have injured field generals, and the timing couldn't be worse as the loser of this game is eliminated from postseason contention.


    Tennessee-Mandalorians.png Houston-Reeks.png

    Mandalorians @ Reeks
    Having just suffered a humiliating defeat, the Mandalorians (10-5) still have a chance to win their division with a win against the Reeks (4-11) who aren't going to the playoffs but would love to play spoiler to their divisional foe.



    GreenBay-Hutts.png Chicago-Wampas.png

    Hutts @ Wampas
    The Hutts (12-3) have nothing to lose but a first-round bye as they take on their divisional rival Wampas (8-7) who need a win or a loss by the Royal Guards to advance.



    Sunday Night:
    Washington-Gungans.png Philadelphia-Yodas.png
    Gungans @ Yodas
    The Naboo Football Team (6-9) holds their destiny in their hands and can advance to the playoffs with a win against their eliminated-but-dangerous rival, the Yodas (4-10-1).

    I haven't been vocal about it, but getting a forum signature would be a neat prize.

    @everyone Happy New Year!
