RFG's Eliminator League Week 8

Oh god I did horrible... well the owner of this game/ defending champion better get up to speed or else I could be out very early this year... which would make the game pretty boring for me, lol. In other news, congratulations to Ryan Newman, as I'm sure he helped all the people that chose due to that +20 handicap as well... oh wait... nobody chose him... I'm betting some of you wish you had last week's picks, lol. Anyway, this race ended up being truly unpredictable, but let's see what the standings have to say about that, where I should be around the bottom if not the bottom:

Top Lineup- Ryan Newman (+20 handicap), Jeff Gordon/ Jimmie Johnson- 385

Poduim Club

1.) Hard to Beat-       380 (PSHCHE! Hard to Beat actually picked the winner, and ended 5 points from a perfect score, amazing Let's see if he can kee the lead this time...)

2.) Bored at Work-    345 (From 22nd to second in 1 week! Huge bounce-back!)

Uscfannv-                345 (Once again he's up top... once I start averages I can't wait to see what his is...)

Fsu1dogs-               345 (And the doghouse is coming back again, can he avoid the bad session this time though unlike last year?)
 
Non-podium 300 club

5.) M56Nascar-          321 (Maybe I'll just take your picks this week, really nice bounce-back!)

6.) Edwardsfan-         316

7.) Tigersman-          314

200 Club

Berlyn-                299

Foreplus-             293

Chokin Colts-       278 (Playing the handicaps may not make you win, but it usually eludes you from elimination as well.)

Spikesgator-        263

Floridawhite-        258

Danger Zone!

Bradman-           180

Roushfenwayguy- 146 (Could last year's winner go down this early???)

Tenacfan-            131 (Welcome to the club tenacfan, lol.)

Well we actually did pretty good as a whole, just that Denny Hamlin dragged a lot of people down... and people that chose a Jeff Burton Kurt Busch combo also got dragged down. Congratulations to Hard to Beat, who once again is at the top, with an even larger lead, can he keep it this time from the popular picks that ended up close behind.

RFG's Eliminator League Week 7

WHAT A FINISH! Denny Hamlin comes from fourth and takes advantage of all the bumps and bruises to come out on top after a 4 tire call that was deemed stupid! That will most certainly help ye seven that chose Hamlin, and no I'm not going to list them all, you can find out from the winner's list of whoever went up, lol. Anyway, since it's Monday I better do them now right.... although we have another week off until Pheonix... I'm just happy of what I saw, apart from Burton blowing up, I really wanted him to win.

Top Lineup: Denny Hamlin (+10 handicap), Ryan Newman (+20 handicap)- 385


The Podium

1.) Tigersman-          667 (343) (The runner up from last year makes his first mark!... PSYCHE! He was 9th.)

2.) Chokin Colts-       654 (343)

3.) Foreplus-             644 (350) (Gets the top score despite not picking the winner!)

Non-Podium 600 Club

4.) Section-               623 (308)

5.) M56Nascar56-       619 (343) (Wait! M58 made the top 5! Its the apocaplypse... run!!!)

6.) Uscfannv-             606 (308)

7.) ILL55INI-             604 (308)

500 Club

8.) Berlyn-                595 (308)

9.) Spikesgator-        566 (270) (JPM robbed his value from Hamlin's win.)

10.) Mikeyfan-            563 (267)

11.) RAK-                   562 (290)

12.) Coach-                555 (343)

13.) Fsu1dogs-           542 (214)

14.) Hard to Beat-       541 (200) (Dropped a lot after getting first after the first race.)

15.) D2Moo-               539 (343) (Climbs from the basement up with Coach)

16.) Roushfenwayguy- 533 (203) (His hope in JPM's top 5 went down in flames early.)

17.) Blkhwkfn-            514 (209) (Survives despite a computer crash, will he be able to overcome it?)

18.) Edwardsfan-         503 (253)

400 Club

19.) Tenacfan-            493 (200)

20.) Floridawhite-        466 (253)

21.) Bradman-            464 (243)

22.) Bored at Work-     424 (128) (JPM didn't do that good, Harvick didn't help him much either.)

23.) Obxyankeefan-     404 (223)

Elimination Club

24.) Yokobluewave-      399 (155) (You missed picks too much, I couldn't give you RFG picks, I gave you a chance at redemption, but I didn't end up looking that smart I guess.)

Well, I gave Yokobluewave a chance at redemption, but it ended up not looking so good, he is once again eliminated, and this time he is for good. Also let's throw our condolences to Blk, who I heard is having computer problems, hopefully he can get it up and running by next race to join the party again. Yoko did serve for one thing though... saving Obxyankeefan from elimination, and it was still close...

RFG's Eliminator League Week 6

I am Coming for you RFG!  Watchout!

Yup, someone didn't read the directions, lol. Yoko, during the past two weeks you have failed to make picks, and I accordingly gave you RFG picks according to your winner and chaser on the pick 3 game, on both weeks you ended up making pretty bad picks, and I didn't see you pick Kurt Busch for your winner in that game, so you didn't end up getting him. Since you ended up with the lowest score during the past two weeks, you were eliminated from the game, then scores start at scratch, so you know... I could go for top 10 to last, so it won't be hard to catch me once a new session starts. Points don't accumulate throughout this whole thing, they reset after every session.

Now anyway, to my decision, since I am the game owner... I can push through a few knots. Since you showed that you still care about the game, and Superjags has missed 3 weeks in a row (also in the pick 3 game), I have decided to count those picks you made yesterday and you are now back in the game in place of Superjags! Just make sure you remember to make picks every week.

Anyway... you know I'm ticked as a Kurt Busch fan and since I picked him.... I think he should have won but Johnson was better on the short run, so I just wish that a caution never happened, though that's a big wish, lol. Anyway, we had 3 Johnson choosers, bored at work, Chokin Colts and Fsu1dogs, also blk got incredibly lucky with him as an autopick. But let's get right to the standings to see how things really went.

Top Lineup: Jimmie Johnson, Kurt Busch/ Tony Stewart- 365

Podium

1.) Hard to beat-       341 (Rides Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Smoke to the lead, proving he's hard to beat.)

2.) Roushfenwayguy- 330 (Ticked that his favorite driver that led the most laps didn't win.)

3.) Fsu1dogs-           328

Non- Podium 300 Club

4.) Tigersman-         324 (Picked a better RCR driver than Section.)

5.) Section-              315 (Favorite driver does decent with the handicap, made a really nice Smoke pick)

6.) Chokin Colts-      311

7.) Blkhwkfn-           305 (Some lucky random picks, make sure to make picks this week please.)

200 Club

8.) Uscfannv-            298 (His +20 from winning last session got him just shy of 300.)

9.) Bored at work-     296

ILL55INI-                 296

Mikeyfan-                 296

Spikesgator-             296

13.) Foreplus-            294 (Played the handicaps pretty nicely, 154 out of Kesolowski.)

14.) Tenacfan-           293

15.) Berlyn-                287

16.) M56Nascar56-       276 (Might actually get above the 400 point mark this session.)

17.) RAK-                    272

18.) Edwardsfan-         250 (Speed didn't pay off this week.)

19.) Yokobluewave-     244

Danger Zone

20.) Bradman-            221

21.) Floridawhite-        213 (Mark getting in the crash ruined a sunny day in Florida.)

22.) Coach-                212

23.) D2Moo-               196

24.) Obxyankeefan-    181 (Clint Bowyer puts a yankee fan at risk.)

So congratz to hard to beat who rode the handicap of Dale Earnhardt Jr. and got a great pick of Tony Stewart to bring himself into the lead, but with Martinsville coming up, its still anyone's game to grab first place. And on the bright side as well, the big tie this time (last time it was Kurt Busch and Kyle Busch picks) ended up much better with Kurt Busch and Jeff Gordon this week.

Roushfenwayguy- 2
uscfannv-            2
Fsu1dogs-          2
Bored at Work-    2

Floridawhite-        1
Section-              1

Superjags-          1
Tigersman-         1
blkhwkfn-           1
RAK-                  1
Chokin Colts-      1

Now that the fifth race is out of the way, new handicaps are coming into play. Also just a note that these new handicap lists will be effective until after week 10, they will not change again until then, so capitalize on those who were just struggling the first 5 races.

RFG's Eliminator League Week 5

So who picked Kurt Busch? Not me... ummm... RAK... oh wait, that's Kyle Busch... out of 50 picks, not a single person picked Kurt Busch, the winner of last year, and this is also the first race that nobody got the winner, but I mean, come on! We got 2 people to pick Jaime McMurray at the unpredictable Daytona, and nobody can even guess that the winner of last year was going to win this year... man we suck... and nobody picked 2nd place Matt Kenseth... anyway, I know one of the people that I'm picking for Bristol. But let's get right to the standings and see who is eliminated! Also Super and Yoko missed both picks this session, I'll try to hunt them down and interrogate them. (Parentheses number= this week's score.)

Top Lineup: Kurt Busch, Paul Menard (370)

Podium/600 Club

1.) Uscfannv-            645 (265)

2.) Foreplus-             610 (286) (With a +20 handicap, Jr. scored around a top 10 points worth, don't complain, lol.)

3.) Bradman-            608 (294)

500 Club

4.) Bored at Work-    593 (256)

5.) Section-              590 (275)

6.) Obxyankeefan-   580 (275)

7.) Roushfenwayguy- 577 (257)

8.) Berlyn-                574 (266)

9.) Coach-                573 (245)

10.) Mikeyfan-            565 (257) (You're chage actually went for the better, 16 points gained, 50 point swing in all.)

11.) Fsu1dogs-           562 (212) (Lost top 3 by a longshot due to Mark Martin getting caught in the crash.)

12.) Floridawhite-        543 (236)

13.) Blkhwkfn-            530 (202)

400 Club

14.) Rak-                   485 (202)

15.) Edwardsfan-         462 (205) (Carl Edwards was actually the risk it looks like.)

16.) Tigersman-          456 (275)

       ILL55INI-             456 (173)

18.) D2Moo-                437 (163)

19.) Superjags-            434 (186)

20.) Spikesgator-         432 (257)

21.) Hardtobeat-          422 (241)

22.) Tenacfan-             414 (233)

23.) Chokin Colts-        400 (216) (JPM was a great pick, Edwards was not.)

The Fail Below 400 Club

24.) M56Nascar-           397 (216) (Same as Chokin's message, except for Kahne instead of JPM.)

25.) Yokobluewave-      295 (152) (Obviously you can't be doing too good in the Pick 3 league as well.)

Well, it was a close race for next to last, lol. Anyway, it looks as it Yokobluewave is the first man out by a long-shot... just shows what not coming can do to  you (hint to Superjags). Also congratulations to Uscfannv, his lead was so vast last week that nobody could come close to catching him. Although nobody even got 300 points this week, quite depressing. In addition, M56 has become the only person to make it into the fail zone twice, and nobody else can hold that honor now that Yoko is gone and hardtobeat doesn't count since he missed the first week... one thing is for sure, M56Nascar has a huge warning sign coming up around him. And one more thing, since you pick two people now, the handicap you get now is +20, not +10, so uscfannv will get yet another handicap, as he is controlling this game right now.

Another week, another Jimmie Johnson win... not very surpising... oh well, I picked him, along with 3 other people. Also a bit of clarification, especially pointing this out for Uscfannv, if you see (RFG autopicks) instead of (random autopicks), it doesn't not mean that you got really lucky random picks, rather selections from either the pick 3 thread or who will win thread are taken into consideration for RFG autopicks. RFG autopicks will overrule any random autopicks, however, you will not receive handicap bonuses from any autopicks. With that clarified, let's get right to the standings...

Best picks = 375 (Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick)

THE PODIUM
1.) Uscfannv-           380 (The bonus points from last session made him score better than the best possible score Surprised!)

2.) Fsu1dogs-          350 (The doghouse is back!)

3.) Bored at Work-    337
NON-PODIUM 300 CLUB

4.) Blkhwkfn-            328 (Bonus points also surged blk near the podium.)

     Coach-                328 (same as berlyn's/mikey's picks, but bonus surged him near the podium.)

6.) Foreplus-            324

7.) Roushfenwayguy- 320

8. )Section-              315 (RCR gamble? paid off)

9.)Bradman-             314

10.) Berlyn-                308

      Mikeyfan-            308

12.) Floridawhite-        307

13.) Obxyankeefan-    305
200 CLUB

14.) ILL55INI-            283

      RAK-                   283

16.) D2Moo-               274

17.) Edwardsfan-         257

18.) Superjags-           248 (lucky he got Harvick as an autopick)
DANGER ZONE!!!

19.) Chokin Colts-       184 (Even Mike Bliss and Kasey Kahne beat the Busch bros...)

20.) Tenacfan-            181 (The Las Vegas Bros. did not pay off this week.)

       Tigersman-          181

       M56Nascar-          181

       Hardtobeat-         181

24.) Spikesgator-        175 (JPM puts him in the danger zone... actually McMurray did...)

25.) Yokobluewave-     143 (Those RFG autopicks can kill you sometimes...)

Yokobluewave, Superjags and Chokin Colts all failed to make picks this week, and as you can see, all three of them suffered, finishing no better than 18th, warning everyone to please make their picks, or else you could pay big time. Everyone is still in this of course... and everyone could still be eliminated, but the Danger zone represents the group where the loser will likely come from. Remeber that if you lose this session, you will get eliminated, its very easy to rise, but also very easy to fall.

Also, I will be keeping close eyes on everyone's lineups. Remeber that you can't choose the same lineup that you had last week, however, you can keep one of your two drivers.

RFG's Eliminator League Week 3

Well, now I know that uscfann likes to make his picks fashionably last minute, lol, combined he must have less than 15 minutes between the time it took him to make picks and the start of the race for both weeks... anyway, there was a whopping 9, count 'em 9 people that picked the winner of Jimmie Johnson! A lot of wins are now going into the books, that's for sure. While I won't bother listing all the people that chose Johnson, as you will see them further below, I will say... well I got nothing else to say until after the standings really, so let's get right to them (The score in parentheses after your total score represents your score for this week!):

Top Lineup:       775 (380)

The Podium Club

1.) blkhwkfn:           702 (341)

2.) Coach:               680 (314)

3.) Uscfann:             634 (342)


Non-Podium 600 Club

4.) Section:              619 (321)

5.) Roushfenwayguy: 606 (375) (1 driver away from perfect picks, surging up 11 spots in the standings for a top 5!)

6.) Bored at Work:    605 (340)

7.) Chokin Colts:     600 (302)


The 500 Club

8.) Obxyankeefan:  583 (291)

9.) Fsu1dogs:         579 (252)

10.) Berlyn:              568 (331)

11.) RAK:                 546 (341)

12.) ILL55INI:          545 (321)

13.) Floridawhite:      534 (303)

14.) Edwardsfan:      524 (252)


The 400 Club

15.) Tigersman:       493 (341)

16.) Mikeyfan:         479 (180) (Got the worse lineup of the week this week.)

17.) Yokobluewave:  478 (234)

18.) D2Moo:            471 (183)

19.) Foreplus:         459 (215)

20.) Bradman:        451 (185)

21.) Tenacfan:        445 (232)

22.) Spikesgator:    433 (215)

23.) Superjags:       411 (256)


The FAIL 300 Club

24.) M56Nascar:      369 (185)

Hard to Beat:   N/A  (233)


So if this was an elimination week, M56Nascar would be the first man out... but that's not the case, and since everyone participated nobody will be eliminated this week... I just didn't want Daytona to be an eliminating factor for some, but Kasey Kahne took out some people this time as well. Congratulations to our top 3, Coach, Usc, and blk, all 3 of you will get bonus points this session.

For this session somebody, only 1, but someone WILL BE ELIMINATED, if you get the lowest score, your out of this game, during the two week session, that simple, but that nerve-wracking if you end up low after the first week.

Also, for all weeks until week 14, you must switch out AT LEAST one of your drivers, you can't have the same 2 drivers for both week, but you can have 1 of the same drivers for both weeks, (I.E.: Week 1 = Jimmie + Mark Martin, Week 2 = Jimmie + Jeff Gordon = legal!... Week 1 = J.J. + Mark Martin, Week 2 = J.J. + Mark Martin = ILLEGAL!) I'll alert you if you have invalid picks the second week.


And by the way, for the winning drivers chosen, those with handicaps won't be considered for wins if they got 2nd, 3rd etc. like last year, since you get two drivers, only getting the winner counts toward this now.
Winning Drivers Chosen:

Roushfenwayguy- 1
Floridawhite-        1
Section-              1
Coach-               1
D2Moo-              1
ILL55INI-            1

RFG's Eliminator League Week 2

Well, here we go again, after week one, there were some people that greatly benefited, and some failiures, pretty much what you would expect from Daytona, lol. And here come the standings, and in addition two people got the winner, D2Moo and Coach, should you guys make it to the chase those winners could come into play:

Top Lineup:    395 (Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jaime McMurray w/ 30 bonus points)

Coach-           366 (McMurray and Harvick surged him to the lead.)

blkhwkfn-        361 (like Coach's situation, except Jr. and that +20 put him in runner- up land.)

Fsu1dogs-       327

Mikeyfan-        299 (I can't believe he did this good with those picks.)

Section-           298

Chokin Colts-   298

obxyankeefan- 292

uscfannv-         292

D2Moo-            288

Edwardsfan-       272

Bradman-          266

RAK-                   205

M56Nascar-          184

Superjags-           155 (Must be grateful that nobody will be eliminated this session.)

Tigersman-          152 (Not even 45 bonus points could save him.)

The first group is the first 3, representing those who would get the bonus points.

The second group represents those who are still within a good striking distance of the top 3.

The thrid group represents those who need really good picks to make a run for top 3.

The fourth group represents the usual line you will see every session, the "IN DANGER" zone, of course, since nobody will get eliminated, that's just for us to get ready to gloat on whichever one of those guys loses... well, one of them will most likely lose, anything can happen of course.

RFG's Eliminator League Week 1


Well, we have officially enough people to make this game able to go underway, however, assuming that all people stay active, we will only have a 4 man shootout at the end, as well as only 1 person getting eliminated in the first and second legs of the chase, if we get at least 1 more will allow 5 in the final, 2 more will make 2 eliminated in the first leg, and it would continue probably in a pattern somewhat similar to that. So just 1-2 more people will really stir up this game to make it magnificentally more entertaining at the end... and again, all assumptions are if everyone stays active.


Now, a brief recap of rules for this week, unlike last year, this year you must pick two drivers for each segment, where in this segment, anything goes, you could have the same lineup both weeks should you so choose, and any combination of two goes. In addition, this session is only for getting the inactives out of the game, unlike last year where the first 8 weeks weren't that interesting because the inactives were getting eliminated, as long as you participate/give a reason as to why you didn't participate for 1 week, you will stay in the game.

NOBODY WILL GET ELIMINATED THIS SESSION!: Again, this session is just for making sure everyone is active in the league, however, this session isn't just a complete mulligan, The top 3 finishers of this session will get 30-20-and 15 bonus points, respective to pos. and as shown in some of the weeks last year, these points maybe crucial if you pick a slip up driver for staying in the game for the next session.

(Also, just saying now that for every session after this one, only the top finisher will get bonus points for the next session, but since you pick two drivers this year, you get a +15 bonus instead of +10.)

And yes I know that some of these rules are different than from my first thread, but the season hasn't started now has it?

And I know I said brief, sorry if this isn't so brief for some, but I have one more message, random picks will still be in play for people that don't make picks, but unlike last year, there will be no handicap points given to drivers that are chosen randomly for you! So just missing one pick can put you on thin ice faster than before, since the first two weeks don't count, hopefully people will get into the rhythem by the time scores really start to count. And I will try to find and notify those who haven't made picks.

Now, like last year, there will be a handicap list, drivers that are in a certain position last year will get handicaps, counted by driver's position, and there will be a few exceptions, the list will tell you in which range gets each handicap, and these handicaps will change after week 5, so if one of these drivers turns hot, using them for a handicap could really boost you toward first place in a session. Here are the lists:

10 handicap: 16th through 23rd

David Reutimann

Jeff Burton

Macros Ambrose

Kevin Harvick

Joey Logano

Casey Mears

Jaime McMurray

Martin Truex Jr.

+20 handicap: 24th through 31st

A.J. Allmendinger

Dale Earnhardt Jr. (oh geez, I wonder how many will pick him)

Elliot Sadler

David Ragan

Sam Hornish Jr.

Reed Sorenson

Bobby LaBonte

Paul Menard

Boris Said (whenever he races Superspeedways)

+25 handicap: 32nd through 38th

David Stremme

Michael Watrip

Robby Gordon

Scott Speed

John Andretti

David Gilliland

Brad Kesolowski

+34 handicap (anyone that finished below 38th last year, or whoever didn't race last year)

You may also pst me your picks if you feel insecure, just like last year, but nobody really ended up doing that, still, if you feel insecure, feel free to pst me your pick, I will put your pick down as ???.

For this week... ah what the heck, after seeing that second duel, I can't go without picking my man Kurt Busch, Brad seemed to help him out quite a bit, I'll stay with Martin though.

The RFG autopicks are picks based on your winner and chaser in the Pick 3 threads, while random autopicks... well... are random, these picks are not finalized unless you don't give me picks before the start of the Daytona 500, so if you don't like your picks, make sure to change them... but heck, maybe letting me give you random picks will make you do better, lol.

Picks for Daytona 500:

Roushfenwayguy- Kurt Busch, Mark Martin

Floridawhite- Mark Martin, Kurt Busch (I'm pretty sure the race started before you made your picks... but you gave a logical excuse... and its Daytona.... and this session doesn't count for much more than bonus points, lol.)

Section- Kevin Harvick (+10 handicap), Mark Martin

Bradman- Kyle Busch, David Ragan (+20 handicap)

Edwardsfan- Carl Edwards, Michael Waltrip (+25 handicap)

Berlyn- Jeff Burton (+10 handicap), Tony Stewart
