Continuing the legacy ...

This event is a Single Elimination tournament run in two separate heats - the winners continue to play until only one person remains in each heat. Enter either or both heats. The Thursday heat has always been considerably smaller so we are moving it to Monday this year in an attempt to draw more players. Whether that will decrease the size of the Wednesday heat, only time will tell. Standard game rules will be modified to add a two-dice field goal chart and overtime rules will be modeled after the NFL's current playoff rule.

If the team that recieves the OT kick-off goes down and scores a touchdown the game is over, but if they only get a field goal the other team has one chance to answer back. If the team with the ball first has to punt, or there is a turnover, it goes straight to sudden-death from that point onward. A recovered on-sides kick counts as a possession for the RECEIVING team. This means that if you receive the OT kick-off and go down and score a field goal and then recover an on-sides kick (why you would do this is questionable...), the game would then end. Also, if you start the OT with an on-sides kick and recover it, you can then end the game with a field goal on your resulting drive.

Please bring a copy of the game if you have one. I will provide charts to accomodate all entrants.

If needed due to an odd number of players, byes will be given to former champions in reverse order. A player may receive only a single bye per heat and if they decide to decline the offer of a bye, the bye will be offered to the next former champion and so on.

As is our custom, the winners of the two heats will meet later during the week at their mutual convenience to decide the championship.

Heats: Multiple Single Elimination (HMSE) - Players may play in and win more than one Heat, but can qualify for only one place in the final event standings. Should a single player win both heats, that person will be the champion. Other places will be decided based on number of entrants in the heat they were the runner-up in followed by any head to head results.

Enjoy this game. It is quick to learn if you understand football and fun to play!
