RIP friend.

Guys - I get a few of these messages each year. I learned that a longtime player on the site has passed away.

jonb had played on this site for 24 seasons. He was one of the original players. He ranks in the top 25 all-time for those 24 seasons at 50.7%.

I didn't know him personally, but I corresponded with him frequently season after season. He used to give me great feedback on how the site was running, if there were any problems with pages loading or ads blocking functionality. He helped shape the site as it grew over time.

He always told me how much he appreciated the site and being able to host his pool with his friends.

People like Jon B are why I keep the site running season after season.

Raise a glass for Jon today! May he rest in peace!

Great season, maybe next year, all the best cheers.

Taylorj3 vaults back into the top spot with a 49ers win and cover. Super Bowl bonus picks are all over the map. So a bonus W could make a difference in the final standings.

Good luck folks!

B-Man's Upset of the Year: Seahawks

I tend to lose track of making this pick til my choices are limited but I usually get this in during the regular season. So this is a bit of a desperation pick, but... Purdy's a rookie, hard to beat a team 3 times in one season, and it looks like drenching rain before and during the game.

Hey all

Wondering if there are any playoff pools going on that are taking in new players?

Thank you
The B-Man1/8/23 11:54:22PM ET
Looking back at my preseason predictions for playoff teams...

NFC Playoff teams:


NFC Champion: Buccaneers

AFC Playoff teams:


AFC Champion: Chiefs

Super Bowl LVII:

CHIEFS over Bucs

I got 4/7 NFC and 5/7 AFC for 9/14 playoff teams. Not too bad. My Super Bowl prediction could still come true. We'll see... I still have a Super Bowl ticket on the Chiefs at 9-to-1 odds.

Big shout out to the Panthers and former Gator Eddy Pineiro who managed to cash my Season Wins Over 6.5 ticket on the very last play of their season. :-D

Another good week to close the regular season.

Important: Make your Super Bowl bonus pick before Saturday's first playoff game kicks off. You pick one team out of the 14 playoff teams to win the Super Bowl. If that team wins, you'll get a bonus win added to your record at the end. With a tight race at the top, this bonus pick could come into play.

Also, there's a few of us who haven't used our Upset of the Year bonus pick. There's no guarantee how many chances we'll have left with only 13 games remaining. So, better use it or lose the chance for a bonus win. The upset pick must be a 7.5 point underdog and must win outright. So far this season, no one's hit it. There are 2 chances this week with the Seahawks and Dolphins big underdogs. If you don't try one of those, there may not be another shot.

Good luck to those still in contention!
