Last Man Standing is a game taken from the football forums in which you pick sides each week that you believe will win. If you are right. you remain through to the following week. If you are wrong, you're out! If you are still in, however, the next week you can't pick that team again. The Last Man Standing will be the winner!

 

As there are fewer weekends in the NFL season than the Scottish Leagues version, and to ensure this remains tricky each week, you'll need to select 2 teams that will win that weekend.

 

This will not be done for money, but for the glory of winning Standing Bowl XIII and lifting the Vince Lambert & Butler Trophy.

 

Rules:

 

Your first entry (2 teams) must be in by the cut off deadline below. You must come back to this thread every week (providing you have survived the previous week) and pick another 2 teams for the following week. Just remember you can't pick a team you have already used previously.

 

Both teams must win for you to remain standing!

 

You can only pick each team once. So keep track of which teams you have already picked. You can pick a team that someone else has already picked. It just means you can't pick that team again.

 

If everyone remaining is knocked out the same weekend, then anyone who scores 1 out of 2 correct would win. If there are several who scored 1 out of 2 then they would carry into the next weekend and continue until we have a winner. 

 

If we get down to only two players left, then at the discretion of the commissioner, sudden death may apply with each player required to pick 5 teams and the highest score by any team during the sudden death week.  Picks and scores to be submitted by PM and the winner will be the player with the most correct picks and should both players have the same number of correct entries then the player closest to the highest score, without going over it, will be declared the winner.

 

In the unlikely event of postponements, you will stay until the next week but you will be unable to pick that team again.

 

For those that haven't picked by the cut off point they will be knocked out. This ensures only committed players continue to play.

 

Once you have selected your picks, please do not go back and edit that post. If you need or want to change your selection then make a new post, only your latest post will be used for your picks.

 

The commissioner's decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

 

Good luck to all who enter and remember it is a bit of fun....

 

Here are the fixtures for Week 1. All times should be British time but if they aren't please let me know. Deadline for picks will be Friday 01:00 if selecting the "Thursday" game or Sunday 17:30 if not.

Rules:

Your first entry (2 teams) must be in by 3:00pm on Sunday 13th November. That's the cut off point for entries. (unless you pick the TNF game - the deadline for that game is 10pm on a Thursday) You must come back to this thread every week (providing you have survived the previous week) and pick another 2 teams for the following week. Just remember you can't pick a team you have already used previously.

Anyway, cheers for picking this up.  I will be honest and say that I completely forgot about it.
