I'm figuring Cleveland is gonna get 2 of those 6 guys.
Rather than guess which 2, I'm all in on each.
Coupled with my bonus points for CLE, I'm hoping to come out of that part of the challenge in good shape.

I thought you were just trying to be funny.

That is actually diabolically clever ...


That's Art.

Art has tried such things before.. with fiery results lol. But, hey, its free.

I seriously doubt he'd do that with a paid entry into a contest lol.

I don't understand top of the entry: Bonus points team one and bonus points team two. What does that mean?

Cmon Bruce. This is the 3rd year with two team bonus points. Read the instructions and rules on the entries page.

You pick two teams that correspond with your entry answers. If your correct answers are your bonus teams, you get additional points, 2 for the vikings, 1 for everybody else.

If you have the Vikings and Raiders as your bonus teams, but none of your entry answers are Vikings or Raiders, you are wasting your bonus teams.

Also, make sure you are spelling the names of your Vikings selected players right. I'll handle slight typos, like extra letters aND misplaced vowels, but I'm not changing stuff like "Denkins" to "Dawkins."

It's still too complicated. I left it blank last year, but I'll put a team's name in this time.

Do you want me to show this to the cat and have the cat explain what it is? 'Cause the cat's going to get it.

I'm old and senile, which means I will probably win, because it will be by luck.

Well Bruce you're only half off on the deal as it stands. There's still one entry that failed on both bonus picks. Of the completed ones anyway.

The Vikings were one of my two bonus teams. Did I make a mistake not having the Vikings listed on any of my answers below? Is it best that a bonus team be a team you selected below, or does it not make any difference? Too complicated.

Edit: Ok, I'll fix it.

If you have bonus points team that don't correspond with your picks, they're useless. You can't get bonus points for teams you don't have on your entry.

I am too Bruce. The other kids made fun of me last year for not understanding it either!

Mine is not complete until I hit 'OK' for my last version.
