YES! The RO NFL Weekly Pool Returns for the 2012/13 season...and so does the CHIMP!

**Announcing the 2012/13 NFL Pick 'Em Weekly Pool!! **
Well…we are two weeks away from the start of NFL season and my pet Chimp & I thought we’d give you another opportunity EACH week to prove you are smarter than a Chimp with your NFL picks. :biggrin: WIJG has kindly given his permission to continue where we left off last year with our weekly fun pool AND we hope to have a few more players this year to give the ape more hope of beating someone!

For those who did not play last year, here’s how it will work.
Each week I will post the NFL schedule with point spreads for all the games. Simply copy and paste the list into your own reply and BOLD or Highlight your choice with the point spread for each game. After the Monday night game each week I will provide a weekly winner and how everyone ranked AND as the season goes on… will produce a SEASON TO DATE STANDINGS by % correct picks.
You can miss games or entire weeks for that matter and still play…but the** SEASON WINNER** must make picks in at least 70% of the games played.

Questions? Post 'em below. First week point spreads will be posted on 8/27 after the last pre-season game is played. Let’s have some fun and see if the Chimp’s prediction of an all NY Superbowl this year comes true! :banana:

Those of you who fail to beat the Chimp each week may count on feces being flung in your general direction but his owner must admit that far too few feces were flung last year!

Stay tuned for the WEEK 1 Point Spreads in just ONE WEEK!

You have Joe Biden for a pet? (Don’t tell the chimp I said that :smiley: )

Nah…I prefer low maintenance pets! :smiley:

[/quote]Too late. I’m pondering your punishment as we speak :mad:

Go Bears

Sounds fun, I’ll try to beat the chimp :deadhorse:

Ummm…that’s a horse…they’re dumb!
I ride them and make them do stuff. What is your favorite team so I can mock you?? :smiley:

WEEK ONE PICKS ARE BELOW!!
Copy/Paste and highlight your choices in BOLD in a new post to play along! ALL are welcome…no politics here!
Picks must be made before kickoff on 9/5 to be valid.
The Chimp is still thinking about his picks but moons everyone to the west of NY…and has other “gifts” for those to the north and south! :smiley:
Winner each week is the player with the highest # of correct picks vs. the point spread. PK means NO spread…pick the winner. Have fun!!

The chaos of another Chimp-FLID production returns. Yes, this is the 2012/13 season. To review the Chimp’s first 2012 effort, aka known as last years pool, go here: http://www.republicanoperative.com/forums/f24/can-you-beat-chimp-announcing-2012-nfl-pick-em-weekly-pool-week-1-a-32695/

Looking forward to another year of man and dog flogging beast!

We could go back further than that, if not for no longer existent forums or forum posts … the consistency of the Chimp is a thing to marvel. This is what?, the 4th year for me and this little pool and I still don’t know how he does it. If I were a betting man, I would simply take the chimp’s picks, turn them around, and make a fortune. Of course I’m not and I only participate in this pool to give my dog Izzy something to do.

By the way, Cam, thanks for doing this again this year. I know it is a lot of work, but it is one of the only things that gives true meaning to Izzy’s life.

Woof!

The Chimp’s results in football prognostication bring nothing so much to mind as the on field results of one of the longest running exercises in AFC futility, the New York Jets. Generations of Long Island youth, having surveyed the possibilities for Jets football, have turned instead to soccer fandom where they can root for their teams not to touch the ball, something Jet fans know can only end badly. Jet fans themselves shorten their sentiments to J-E-T-S from Just End The Season. The Chimp is a product of his environment, who secretly wears dark blue pajamas to bed.

The Chimp feels this will be a rebuilding year for the Green & White…and will continue to be until Tebow is gone and they start spending their $$ on quality. The offensive coordinator will be gone before the season is over. He cannot be disappointed with them this season, unlike the cheeseheads who are possibly never to recover from their post season humiliation by a certain 9-7 team from NY.

[/quote] Tebow, who hasn’t taken a regular season snap in a Jet uniform, is now the problem? In the pantheon of Jet transactions, both draft and trade, his acquisition ranks as no more than an average, standard Jet move. If they’re going to start spending on quality, they might start in the GM and Head Coach areas first. 9-7, for the Jets, would be a huge accomplishment. There’s only one team from NY and they’re driving down from Buffalo to mop up some Jersey shopping mall with the Jets. “possibly never to recover”? Yeah, like it’s possible the Chimp wins the pool, possibly this year, possibly in anyone’s lifetime, possibly ever. How 'bout this; Packer fans will handle the championships and Jet fans can focus on the possibilities. NY Jets? Ha! They oughta call them the NY Lottery Tickets.
