If your pick was accepted it will be prefilled on the pick sheet.


    If all of the final survivors should be eliminated from the pool in the same week, the tiebreaker is the total number of games won.  In other words, during double picks, if all the survivors should happen to go either 1-1 or 0-2, the 1-1’s will all advance and the 0-2’s will all be eliminated.


    • To revive a player means to allow someone back into the pool that previously was eliminated.  When a player is revived, they show up in the standings with an R by their pick, indicating they were revived.  This feature has only be utilized in extremely rare instances.
    • If ALL survivors should ever be eliminated in the same week, all survivors tied with the most wins in that week will be revived and returned to the pool.

    The pool managers have the ability to enter or change picks for any one at any time.  If the pool managers enter or change your pick before the pick deadline passes, you will be notified by an automated website email.  If the pool managers change anybody’s pick after the deadline or after the game started, that pick will get flagged with an “M” so everyone can see how and when it changed.


    If a game is postponed to a later week, all the picks for that game will be deleted by the website.  The website will send an email notification to the people who picked that game and their pool managers.  Whether they get the email or not, it is the responsibility of the individual pool member to know that the game was postponed and to enter a new pick (if necessary) before the pick deadline passes.


    The NFLGoddess and BoxScore Baseball Commissioner has the final say regarding the interpretation of these rules.  If there is ever a discrepancy between what the website shows and what the player says he/she entered, the website will be considered correct.  If there is ever a discrepancy between what the website shows and a pick confirmation email, the website will be considered correct.
