Tournament Format

Beginning in 2002, we used the most recently completed NFL season for our tournaments, so last season is on tap for replay. Come out and see if you can repeat last season's success or lack thereof.

The way you get a team is in the upper right hand corner, each team is rated with a power rating. The bidding for that team begins with the power rating, rounding up if the number is 229.5, it would be 230 to start. Then I ask everyone who wants that team for 230. If more than one person raises their hands, the bidding goes up by one point until there is either only one person left, or everyone puts their hand down. If all lower their hand on the last bid, then they all roll the paydirt dice; whoever has the high roll gets the team. The teams are all dispersed using this method, then the first round matches the highest bid team vs. the lowest bid team, and the matchups continue using the same method.

When those teams play, the team with the highest power rating must win by MORE than the difference in their teams power rating. So if Dallas was bid at 235 and plays Philadelphia which was bought for 215, the Cowboys would have to win the game by more than 20 points, or the player with Philadelphia would move on to the next round. This gives every player a fair chance to win the tournament regardless of the team he has.

There have been all kinds of combinations in the Super Bowls the last five years: two high power rated teams, two low rated teams, and one of each. No advanced rules are used. I encourage new players to attend, and all that is needed is a basic knowledge of football.
