With the preseason due to start for our beloved Seahawks this weekend, I thought it was a great time to resurrect the 12 Seahawks Street Knockout Pool.
Sometimes called Suicide Pools, this is where you pick one game per week, without the point spread, and see if you can be the last player standing, as others get knocked out of the pool.
There are three simple rules to follow, and I've added a specific Seahawk Kicker*:
1. Pick the outright winner of one game each week
2. You cannot pick FOR or AGAINST the same team again once you use a team
3. If your team wins, you pick again the following week, otherwise, you're KNOCKED OUT!
* SEAHAWK KICKER: You can pick FOR the Seahawks as many times as you'd like, but you cannot pick AGAINST them!
So for instance, if you pick the Seahawks to beat the Lions in Week 1, when the Seahawks win, you'll live to play the following week. However, you cannot pick AGAINST the Lions again for the rest of the season, but the Seahawk Kicker* will allow you to pick them again to beat the Cardinals in Week 2.
I figured we'd run this in preseason, to give everyone an idea how to play, then clear the slate when the regular season begins, and see how many weeks it takes to arrive at the Undisputed 12 Seahawks Street Knockout Pool Champion!
Your pick must be submitted the day before the game, and if you don't submit a pick for a week you will be DQed. To submit your pick, either post it in the Comments section, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will post the picks in the body of this topic, along with the teams used each week.
