NFL Confidence Picks WEEK 13 11/30,–12/03/04/ 2017

Another week and the NFL has failed to enforce their own RULE/POLICY.  Just another example of INEPTITUDE by the organization.  

It goes right back to how they pick and choose violations.  The PLAYERS, play by different rules every play. (It depends on how NFL wants to interpret them at that moment).  The game OFFICIALS, have to guess what rules they are supposed to use.  Then they (the game OFFICIALS take the heat for wrong calls.

I haven’t worn any of my NFL clothing, I haven’t bought anything with anything dealing with the NFL.  (HOPE YOU HAVEN’T EITHER).  I only try to tune in for the National Anthem.  I don’t see any “kneeler’s” or “sitters” I would most likely watch the game, BUT…. The rule/policy breakers MUST see some punishment. 

I really have 4 teams that I used to follow.  I know some of my favorite players are standing like AMERICANS.  I would love to watch them play and support them.  BUT I can’t (in my mind) justify watching them, because that would also support NFL.  Speaking of NFL (NATIONAL Football League) I wonder which NATION they are supporting.  We know Marshawn Lynch is supporting the Mexican Nation.  How about the rest of you OVERPAID, spoiled little brats?  I am not talking about you, who STAND.  I  am talking about those of you who take US DOLLARS, live the good life.  But don’t support the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.  

Oh well; season is almost over.  I have made it this far without watching a game, or buying NFL merchandise,  and the companies who Spend their money in advertising,  I have stopped visiting your companies, PIZZA, BEER, whatever I don’t buy your products. 

But I am an AMERICAN I support America,  If you don’t that is your right.  But I think you should, as the old saying goes.  AMERICA LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT.   

 

For those of you who do not know how confidence ranking works, let me explain.

If we were playing an office pool,(which we ARE NOT).  The object is to score the most points. To obtain the score YOU rank the teams by how confident you are a team will win its game.  EXAMPLE:  Say this week we have 16 games.  The team you are most confident will win you would assign the number 16 and follow down to the team you are least confident in and assign that number 1.   We use the Monday night game(last game) as a TIE BREAKER.  The tie is broken by the closest to the total (that is the COMBINED score of the two participating teams) final score, without going over.

If we were playing this is how my sheet would look;  My pick will be in bold Capital letters.  you can use circling, underlining, or highlighting.  I will show my correct points in Bold

YOU can adopt the scoring  described above.  Or, the optional method.  A  negative score for missed games.  We will continue to get a positive score for correct predictions.  EXAMPLE:   if you scored 1 pt on the first game and you had 15 pts on the second game and lost you would still have a Positive 1.  HOWEVER. with the same scenario new scoring system would result with a -14 score.

I will fill in my picks Thursday.  Until then feel free to:

Just copy and paste for your own Fun Pool Use.  Or to see if you can beat me.

IF YOU SEE I MADE A MIS-COPY OF THE GAMES AND TIMES FEEL  FREE TO EMAIL ME AND TELL ME I GOOFED.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL.
