Give the order to deploy the glaive.

I'm gonna go with some underdogs of

Steelers over Patriots
and
Packers over Falcons

in the history of post season Packers v. Giants games, the winner has gone to the super bowl. Therefore Packers have to win against the Falcons.

So as of now, here is where we stand

Pokemon73: (7-3)
CJ: (5-5)
Gaomon274: (8-2)*
HeroineDark: (5-5)

Tomorrow at 8 p.m. EST is there competition*
Sunday at 8 PM is the Pro Bowl*

* - in the result of a tie, everyone who picks gets a win

You can either do the following for each pick
1) Get double wins (a loss gives you 1 loss)
2) Get Double CC (you get only 1 win/1 loss)

My Picks:

Competition: NFC over AFC (x2 wins)
Pro Bowl: NFC over AFC (x2 CC)

Let's be real, Brady is playing for AFC and chances are people want him hurt and out of the super bowl. He's gonna be playing cautiously and not his normal.

TBH you don't need the wins since you already got the ribbon :P so you would get x4 CC if both are right :P

Ah, right.

Was thinking just about keeping the overall win lead but that be true.

I shall indeed go with the recommendation of going for the point multiplier. :D

So the Super Bowl is a thing this Sunday :P

Super Bowl: (1) New England Patriots (17-2) vs. (2) Atlanta Falcons (13-6)

My pick for now is Atlanta over New England, but it might change during the coin toss (which is like the only SftC pick thats always 50-50 XD)

EDIT with 39 minutes before kickoff: New England over Atlanta

TFW when there was a double face mask that should've canceled each other out, but only called in patriots favor.

So, what needs giving out in terms of prizes?

(If I'm awarded a ribbon for this then I won't be accepting it, because I feel that I didn't do enough to earn it. The whole point of the ribbons is that they're to be given out for "exceptional achievements in your contests, above and beyond what is normally required to win". With my 8-6 win/loss rate, I really didn't do this: it was little better than would be expected from random guessing. TBH, the ribbon requirement given in the opening post is too easy, and it should probably be put up to 10 wins for next year, although I suppose it's too late to change it for this contest now)

Well this year there were 13 matches (11 normal games, 2 special) and you needed 8 wins to get the ribbon, and if you went with double wins which could make you 15-0 (However I want to compare the Super Bowl Comeback to CJ's comeback to actually win a ribbon after being like 3-5 :P)

Anyway here are the prizes:
Pokemon73: 500 CC and a Red ribbon
CJ: 400 CC and a Red ribbon (not claimed)
Gaomon274: 900 CC and a red ribbon
HeroineDark: 350 CC

Also for 4 years we've been doing this, and here is where everyone ranks who's participated :P
1) Gaomon274: 9-4
2) Pokemon73: 32-19
3) CJ: 27-23
4) HeroineDark: 14-13
5) Roman Empress: 1-1
6) rmndlr: 2-3

Yeah, that's kind of my point. If I guessed completely at random (and went with double wins), I'd win 7.5 points on average. I'd get 8 or more points (and a ribbon) about 50% of the time, and 7 or fewer points (and no ribbon) about 50% of the time.

So, I stand by what I said: if a person just randomly guessing has a 50% chance of getting a ribbon, then someone winning the ribbon hasn't attained "exceptional achievements, above and beyond what is normally required to win". The requirement of 8 wins for a ribbon is much too easy, and needs to be increased for future editions of the contest. (Perhaps it should be at least 8 wins, plus at least a 67% win-loss rate? That way, you and Gaomon274 still get your ribbons, but I don't)

Anyway, I'll award your CCs and the ribbons now :) .
