Survivor Pool Rules:

* One loss and you're eliminated

* You must pick one team each week to win outright. (no spread) Spreads are displayed only for informational purposes.

* You can't pick the same team twice during the season.

* An NFL tie is a loss

* A Duplicate pick is a loss. Check your picks!! Picksheet should prevent it but you are still responsible to check! I'll change it using Rule 6 criteria if I catch it.

* If you do not make a pick you will be given the team favored by the most points that you have not already used.
* In case of a tie, you get the team with best record.
* In case of a tie, you get whichever team is playing at home.
* In case of a tie, you get whichever team nickname comes first alphabetically (i.e., Bears before Falcons, etc.)
* I must receive your pick BEFORE the deadline!!

Since there is a Thursday game every week this year (more or less) that pick will always be due by game time.
The Thursday game will never be the default pick if you don't make your own pick.

Margin Pool Rules:

*A Margin Pool is different from a Survivor Pool in that in a Margin Pool, you play the entire season, you are not eliminated with a loss. 

* You must pick one team each week to win outright. (no spread) Spreads are displayed only for informational purposes.

*Once a pool member picks a team, you cannot pick that team again.

*If your team wins, the winning margin, or margin of victory is added to your season point total. 

*If your team loses then the winning margin is subtracted from your season point total.

*If you miss a week (there are no default picks in this pool), or if you pick a team twice ( the picksheet should prevent a duplicate pick), the largest winning margin of the missed/duplicate week is subtracted from your season point total.

*Highest season points total wins. Total wins throughout the season will be the tiebreaker
