Week 14 is in the books and the website has been updated.

Week 14 goes in the books as a wild and crazy week of football. We have the Miami Miracle, the Pittsburgh Silde giving my Raiders the victory; and the false Chinese Fire drill in the Ram/Bears game. Nobody has been talking about this so I guess you had to be watching. Chicago had a 4th and 4 or 5 I think it might have been in the 3rd quarter. They put the punt team in and the Rams obviously put in their punt coverage team. At the last second Chicago switched gears and on came the offense trying to catch the Rams with their pants down. The only problem is one of the officials got knocked down in the drill. The officials called a time out to allow the official who got knocked down time to get backup and compose himself. I thought Matt Nagy was going to pop a blood vessel; he was livid and I don't blame him. It definitely would have caught the Rams in an offside or not prepared and Chicago would have had an easy 1st down. Instead they punted. If it was me I would have pull the same Chinese Fire Drill. it's actually a smart play and I'm surprised it's not called more often.

It's that time of the season when the pink slips start to fly. We saw two last week with Mike McCarthy and Reggie McKensie being shown the exit door. There will be many more in the next few weeks.

I'm hoping that we can get the numbers backup in the pool for next year. I have been running this pool for a long time and have typicially had numbers up around 120. My dream was to grow it up to around 200, but it just never happened. So my ask is for everyone to start promoting my pool. Hopefully we can get the number back up to around 120 at least for next season.

If you haven't already seen it; I have my Super Bowl squares pool up and running.

Congrats to the week 14 winners.

On to next season!!!

Go RAIDERS!!!

I need EVERYONE to register each year by submitting the ENTRY FORM. This saves me time and helps me keep track of everyone (NO EXCEPTIONS).

When you register you have the option to pick a POOL NICKNAME or use your REGULAR NAME. When you submit your ENTRY FORM. Whatever you choose I add that NAME to the database.

If you did not register and submit picks week 01. I wiil add whatever name you used when you submitted your picks. That will become your POOL NICKNAME, please remember it and use that NAME going forward.

Going forward when submitting picks each week; when you begin to enter your NAME it will suggest similiar names as you begin to type your name in the POOLNAME field on the PIKSHEET.

EXAMPLE: My POOL NICKNAME is Commish Danno. If I begin to type the letter "C" it should display all the names in the database that begin with the letter "C". You do not need to type your whole name; although you should enter more than ONE character so that it filters out other names. Once you see your POOLNAME you can click on your name and it will automatically fill your POOLNAME in the name field on the picksheet. Same goes for the email address.

If you register with a POOL NICKNAME of "Superstar" and then submit picks with a name of "John Smith"; how am I supposed know who John Smith is.

So because I know there are a few people who will not register I will go through the pain for week 01 only of trying to figure out who you are. And only for week 01.

If you submitted picks under "Superstar" for week 01 and then for any subsequent week(s) you submit picks under another name like "John Smith". You will get random picks for "Superstar" and the picks submitted under "John Smith" will be ignored.

When I import the PICKS into the database it has to find a POOLNAME match in the database in order to know whose picks they are. If there are picks that have been submitted and there is no matching name in the database; everything stops and I have to figure out what the problem is and then I have to manually enter the picks for that person.

I'm sorry to be such a hardass about this, but it drives me crazy when this happens.

Welcome to the 25th annual "$how Me The Money" Football Pool. It's that time of year again and the "$how Me The Money" FOOTBALL POOL is back for another season.

Our purpose is to run a friendly internet based office type football pool, have fun and hopefully spread the money around as much as possible. Anyone can play as long as they pay. The bottom line it costs me money to run this Football Pool and Website. I don't mind as long as everyone that plays pays. I do withhold $200 from the season prize pool money, but that does not cover the entire cost nor does it excuse anybody from paying the entry fee.

The cost for this years pool is the same $70.00 for the entire 17 week season, payable in advance (I'm flexible on the money as long you pay ASAP). The only reason I'm asking for the money in advance is so that I don't have to chase you down for it. So here's the deal, if you want to play and can't come up with $70.00 in advance, pay me what you can up front and then the rest by the halfway point of the season (the 9th week). If you get lucky and happen to win one of the weekly pools and have not paid in full, the balance owed will be deducted from your winnings.

$2.00 per entry per week will be applied towards the weekly prize money. Simply put, the more that play the bigger the pot. The remainder of the money will be applied towards the yearly prize pool, which is detailed in the rules.

All money taken in will be paid out in prize money except for the $200 administrative cost, this is strictly for fun not for profit. Sign up now, ask your friends or relatives anybody can play. The football season is just around the corner. Use the Entry Form Page to sign up today. Check the What's New Page for some important news on changes to this years pool.
