Group Name Chiefs Planet Survival
Group ID#: 9526
Group Password Holmes

A weekly game that challenges you to show your skills by correctly identifying a winning professional football team in each of the 17 weeks of the regular season.

Each week you must select one team that you suspect will be a winner in their game that weekend. If that professional team wins, you remain Active and are allowed to pick again the following week. If the professional football team you selected loses (or the game ends in a tie), you are Eliminated from the competition and may no longer make future picks.

To make this simple sounding game more of a challenge, you can only select each professional football team once.

50 total spots in this group come one come all. Only 49 left.

I've started the Chiefsplanet league ever since that game has been in existence from Yahoo! Glad to see someone else take the reigns.

I'm in. And I usually do very well at these things.

I can't remember if it was last year or the year before, but all but a few of us picked an obvious loser like that and were knocked out the first week.

Holy CRAP! That's 5 times this year I'll have to take someone other than SF's opponent! I'll only be able to take that 12 times. Screw it, I'm out.

Yeah, there are always a couple of games a year that take out half the remaining players.

Damn straight. I'm not afraid to pick 'em early. What, somebody's gonna steal my plan? ROFL

(PS, my plan of picking the 9ers to lose ensures that Alex Smith will go to the Pro Bowl and qualify for the NFL Hall of Fame in his rookie year.)

The Savage Midgets have secured their spot into week 2 with a no-brainer.

As per usual, the savage Midgets will beat you all like you stole money from their grandma.

23 out of 40 have made their picks. If you haven't made your picks by the deadline it will be concidered a wrong pick and you will be eliminated. The deadline to submit your final pick for the week is 11:59 p.m. PT on the day before the first game of that week. Which means you need to have your pick in by 11:59 PT tomorrow.

Also we have room for 10 more if you want to join.

All 50 spots are taken PBJ . But just a reminder that 14 of you still have not made your pick for the week.


If you haven't made your picks by the deadline it will be concidered a wrong pick and you will be eliminated. The deadline to submit your final pick for the week is 11:59 p.m. PT on the day before the first game of that week. Which means you need to have your pick in by 11:59 PT tomorrow.



That means you have until 11:59 p.m. Wednesday Sept. 7 to make your pick, which for most of us is today.

I think the software that runs their league is confused by tonight's Thursday game. As long as you're still active in the league you'll get an automatic email on Thursday....but the deadline for making picks was Wednesday 11:59 pm. Probably just an oversight on their part.

Next year I am finding a gambler that will pay me to jinx a team in the first week. Have to find some way to get something out of this "skill".
