Congratulations to twig93 for winning the Week 8 award, Choose Your Own Adventure Award -- You get to choose one award from a selection of two non-negative awards and a higher-variance, possibly-negative award:
  • Jables' Home Field Advantage
  • Random Poster's Lucky 7
  • The Arbitrary Award: If you use this award you may flip your pick for all non-Divisional games for one team for the rest of the season.
The default option will be JHFA applied to twig93's week 14 picks. She may reject this choice and make her own before TNF's kickoff.

Additionally, she, along with Funemployed & rekrap have won the "Change One Future Pick" award. The use of this award may be declared at anytime before the kickoff of the game it affects. It expires at kickoff of the final game of the season.

Finally, an additional award or two:

Pat on the Back™ award:
Way to go, Ultimate Anyone?. You wisely chose to use the COFP award to change your Giants pick to the Lions. You picked up an extra win! Nice job!

Way to go, twig93. You wisely chose to use the COFP award to change your Chiefs pick to the Packers. You picked up an extra win (and vaulted yourself into first place for the week)! Super Nice job!

Way to go, Funemployed, jesusislord, & KS6392.You wisely chose to use the COFP award to change your Falcons pick to the Seahawks. You picked up an extra win! Nice job!

Way to go again, Funemployed. You wisely chose to use the COFP award to change your Chiefs pick to the Packers. You picked up an extra win! Nice job!

Pardon me a moment while I go ice my hand.

Time for another look at PAM (the Predictive Analytics Machine):

Funemployed and jesusislord differ in the following games this week:
Colts, Steelers
Dolphins, Jets
Broncos, Browns

Everything else is too complicated, since there's currently a tie for first place.

Do you mean Colts? The Chiefs played the Packers and lost.

As for the award, the default you picked is one I was considering, but Iíll ponder some more.

I assume with The Arbitrary award I have to flip *all* non-division games? I canít leave some alone and flip others? Just checking!

I must've gotten some wires crossed. It's been fixed now.
