Come one, come all, and join the AA Elimination League for the upcoming NFL Season! I'm not quite sure of the prize(s), but they'll definitely be something cool. Here's how it's going down.....
Head to the Eliminator Challenge Page Of ESPN.com (Yes ESPN...everywhere else had a cap on the number entrants. Sorry.) Sign into your ESPN Account (register if you don't have one), and click on Create Your Entry.
Once you have a clever team name, go to Create or Join a Group in the top left corner. Search for Awful Announcing and the group should come up. The password is "nfl" in all lower case. Hit Join this Group, and head to the message board to post your blog.
Elimination FactorThose are ESPN's rules in case you didn't. Please join up, and let's all have some fun this NFL Season!
You must select which team you believe will be the winner. If you are correct, you will advance to the next week's game. If you are incorrect, it will greatly decrease your chances of competing for the grand prize or second place prize (unless there are no other perfect entries present at the end of the promotion). You may not pick the same team to win twice during the season, and the game will continue each week until the end of the season.
The object of the game is simple: Correctly predict one winning team each week from all regularly scheduled games. Remember, you may not pick the same team to win twice during the season. So, choose wisely!
