RFG's Eliminator 4.0 Week 20

Yes you still can't edit blogs, I have been keeping an eye on when they finally bring the edit option back, for now though the message boards will have to do. Hopefully they have them done by next season at leastUndecided.

Well, looks like Fog forgot about this game, but good thing is that he didn't forget about the pick 3, so he got Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch and picks. As for the winner, we had only one blind squirrel that found the winner, and second place as well, which should set him up for an easy avoidance of elimination. So lets see what everyone would rather see, who is near the bottom and is in trouble! Oh and one more thing, handicaps will be re-evaluated next week, so make sure to take advantage of any you still want to use.

PODIUM

1.) Beardawg-           95 (Its going to take a big wreck to take this bear down, but we are coming up on Indy.)

2.) Bradman-           80

3.) River Rat-           76

NON-PODIUM 70 CLUB

4.) Fsu1dogs-           75

5.) ILL55INI-            74

6.) Fog-                   73

7.) Sfrye-                 72

Roushfenwayguy-      70 (Ghost picks)

8.) Berlyn-                70

Floridawhite-             70

DANGER ZONE

10.) Tigersman-        68 (SWR wasn't the best lineup, but two top 15s still isn't bad.)

11.) Tenacfan-          60 (The latest victim of Edwards' mediocre season.)

12.) Edwardsfan-       60 (Needed every point of that bonus to justify that Burton pick.)

Basically, the distance from 1st to 3rd is greater than the distance from 3rd to last place. There will be a very tight competition for who goes home this week, as picking one bad driver could easily do you in right now... unless your Beardawg, then you might need two bad drivers...

Winning Drivers List:

Tigersman-             4

Beardawg-              4 (The blind squirrel found 4 nuts, and is now in a tie for most winning drivers.)

ILL55INI-                2

Tenacfan-                2

Sfrye-                      2

Floridawhite-             2

Berlyn-                    1

River Rat-                1

Fsu1dogs-                1

Bradman-                 1

Edwardsfan-              0 (Is now the only person in this game yet to pick a winner.)


(Mark Martin, by average, would currently be 14th in the standing were he race all races, so 15th is now 16th, etc.)

+2 Handicap: 16th-22nd


Joey Logano (new to handicap list)

Kasey Kahne

Marcos Ambrose

Jamie McMurray

Juan Pablo Montoya

Jeff Gordon

Jeff Burton

Aric Almirola

+4 Handicap: 23rd- 29t

A.J. Allmendinger (+2 to +4 handicap)

David Ragan

+6 Handicap: 30th- 35th

David Gilliland

Travis Kvapil

Landon Cassill

Dave Blaney

David Reutimann

J.J. Yeley (new to handicap list)

+8 handicap: Anyone Below 35th

Dang I should have thought twice before picking Tony last race. Well I'm going with Jeff Gordon for sure. As for the other, I always believed that the winner of this race has a great shot of winning the championship, so lets take a gamble with Greg Biffle and that low (as in good) avg. finish of his.

Roushfenwayguy (GHOST PICKS)- Greg Biffle, Jeff Gordon (+2 handicap)

RFG's Chase Eliminator FINAL

Well Tony Stewart won... awwwww... next week for Carl Edwards I guess. Anyways, Sfrye saved both of them, so did he win... well of course, he was only 6 points behind bored, so the winner of the game is Sfrye, but incase you want me to prove it, or to find out where you rank, I got the complete standings done:

Roushfenwayguy (ghost picks)- 369 (68)

Sfrye-                                     387 (91) (Well, the last week strategy for the top 2 definetely worked out, as shown.)

Bored at Work-                        378 (76) (Kept it very close considering what Sfrye did, a well deserved second after possibly being the most dominant player during the regular season.)

D2Moo-                                   335 (56) (Well, you picked the right week for Edwards... as for Kurt...)

ILL55INI-                                 326 (52) (Well, a tie for last... so I guess nobody gets last Smile.)

Foreplus-                                 326 (48) (Jimmie Johnson brought down Foreplus all the way to a tie for last place, last season I wouldn't be saying this.)

And so you have it, Sfrye wins the season thanks to saving the best for last in a stategy that Tony Stewart was speculated to backfire on based upon his track record here, but obviously that didn't happen. Congratulations to Sfrye, and the close runner up Bored at Work. I hope to see all of you in February when we get back to Daytona!

RFG's Chase Eliminator Week 10

Well, one more week, and Kahne won, he really is heating up, and might not be a bad pick for Homestead, anyways, other others in the top 3 were Smoke and Edwareds, surprise surprise, so lets see how that fared for everyone:

Roushfenwayguy (GHOST PICKS)- 301 (69) (+1)

Bored at Work-                           302 (73) (+1)

Sfrye-                                        296 (69) (0)

D2Moo-                                     279 (72) (0)

Foreplus-                                   278 (79) (+3)
 
ILL55INI-                                   274 (76) (+1)

Well, if I was in the competition, we would have one heck of a three way competition to win it all, however, I'm not, but two people to win it all is still going to be a great competition, and who knows, if both of them have a bad driver, all the other three in this competition are close enough to take first with a great lineup as well, so its not really over for anyone just yet, except me of course.

Since this is the last week, and Sfrye and Bored are so close, Sfrye and Bored at Work can not share the same lineup, if you do, whoever picks second will occur a -5 penalty, just enough to make sure that even if you just swap your winner from 2nd place, that you will still lose enough to be mathematically unable to catch the other person.

2 Handicap: 16th-22nd

Greg Biffle (replaces Kasey Kahne)

David Ragan

Marcos Ambrose 

Juan Pablo Montoya

Mark Martin

Paul Menard (from +4 to +2)

Joey Logano  

+4 Handicap: 23rd- 29th

Martin Truex Jr. (from +2 to +4)

Jeff Burton

Brian Vickers

Regan Smith

Jamie McMurray

David Reutimann

Bobby LaBonte

+6 Handicap: 30th- 35th

David Gilliland

Casey Mears

Dave Blaney

Andy Lally

Robby Gordon

J.J. Yeley (replaces Tony Raines)

+8 handicap: Anyone Below 35th

Like I said before, there will be no bonuses, this last week will be a pure fight for competitions, which are still well up for grabs, especially in the first/ second and third/fifth brackets.

Yup, sure looks like a good time to go with Kasey Kahne considering the lack of options I have, my other option... wow I'm really running out of options... might as well go with A.J. Allmendinger, not like I'm in this competition anyways...

Roushfenwayguy (GHOST PICKS)- Kasey Kahne, A.J. Allmendinger

Sfrye- Carl Edwards, Tony Stewart                                  

Bored at Work- Kasey Kahne, Kevin Harvick                     

Foreplus- Jimmie Johson, Regan Smith (+4 handicap)                    

ILL55INI- Jeff Gordon, Greg Biffle 

D2Moo- Carl Edwards, Kurt Busch

Keep in mind that these statistics do not include myself, since I am just making ghost picks

Only Foreplus may use Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Nobody may use Matt Kenseth

Only Bored at Work can use Denny Hamlin

Only Foreplus may use Jimmie Johnson

Nobody may use Tony Stewart

RFG's Chase Eliminator Week 9

The chase is winding down, and only two contestants really remain, Edwards and Stewart, and while there are only two left in that competition, we got more than that... at least I think, considering all the Edwards and Kenseth picks that both scored in the top 5. Also, not a single person has used Smoke... throughout the whole final segment... so how many will end up picking him during either Homestead or Pheonix? Anyways, lets see the scores everyone put up.:

Roushfenwayguy (ghost picks)- 232 (86)

Bored at Work-                       229 (88) (+2 bonus)

Sfrye-                                    227 (87) (+2 bonus)

D2Moo-                                 207 (83 (+4 bonus)

Foreplus-                               199 (67) (Denny Hamlin made Foreplus start to fade from the picture, with 4 total driver though, this game can be easily made up.)

ILL55INI-                              198 (86)

So apart from Foreplus, there was a maximum of five points seperating each person in points for this week, but with many drivers that people can't use anymore, picks may start to get more different, and then we may see some differences in points, either that or everyone is getting rid of all the same drivers at the same times... also Foreplus had 2 points added to her score, I forgot to add +2 for her Biffle pick on the first week.

Roushfenwayguy (GHOST PICKS)- 146 (87)

Bored at Work- 141 (82)

Sfrye-              140 (81)

Foreplus-         132 (72)

D2Moo-            124 (85)

ILL55INI-         112 (70)

So the top 2 are extremely close, foreplus and D2Moo still are in the hunt, as 17 points can be made up pretty easily in 3 races, and ILL55... well he's gotta start making some good picks...

2 Handicap: 16th-22nd

Greg Biffle (replaces Kasey Kahne)

David Ragan

Marcos Ambrose 

Juan Pablo Montoya

Mark Martin

Paul Menard (from +4 to +2)

Joey Logano  

+4 Handicap: 23rd- 29th

Martin Truex Jr. (from +2 to +4)

Jeff Burton

Brian Vickers

Regan Smith

Jamie McMurray

David Reutimann

Bobby LaBonte

David Gilliland

Casey Mears

Dave Blaney

Andy Lally

Robby Gordon

J.J. Yeley (replaces Tony Raines)

+8 handicap: Anyone Below 35th


Just a heads up, since last week is the last week, there will be NO BONUS, because I want the last race to be fair...ish, anyways, its time to recycle ideas for this week, lead changes, which actually do not happen too much at Pheonix. +5 for the exact amount, +3 for 1-2 off, +1 for 3-5 off, and nothing for anything else.

For me this week, Tony Stewart sucks at Homestead, so I might as well go with him here. Also, its time to use Kurt Busch, since I can't use Edwards, Johnson or Gordon...

Roushfenwayguy (GHOST PICKS)- Tony Stewart, Kurt Busch (bonus= 10 laps) Carl Edwards Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon  Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski

Sfrye- Jimmie Johnson, Tony Stewart (19 laps)  Greg Biffle Kevin Harvick   Trevor Bayne,                                  

Bored at Work- Tony Stewart, Brad Keselowski (18 laps) Carl Edwards,  Jimmie Johnson,  David Ragan, Trevor Bayne                   

Foreplus- Tony Stewart, Jaime McMurray (+4 handicap) (16 laps)  Carl Edwards Kurt Busch, Jeff Burton , Greg Biffle                   

ILL55INI- Tony Stewart, Jimmie Johnson (17 laps) Carl Edwards,    Kurt Busch,  Kevin Harvick,

D2Moo- Tony Stewart, Brad Keselowski (22 laps) Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson,    Kevin Harvick,

Keep in mind that these statistics do not include myself, since I am just making ghost picks

Only Foreplus may use Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Nobody may use Matt Kenseth

Only Bored at Work can use Denny Hamlin

RFG's Chase Eliminator Week 8

Sorry for getting this up so late guys, where I live we lost power for four days, its been rough, but I finally got power back, and thus have enough time to get this up. Anyways, Smoke won, nobody picked him, but look at who picked both 2nd and 3rd... I wish I didn't get eliminated last segment, or else I could have won... anyway, lets see how the REAL competition is going.. and oh yeah, that bonus, was 16 laps down! Not surprisingly nobody was close enough to grab bonus points this week... and one more thing, since Fogducker missed picks for two consectutive weeks, he has been eliminated, making this a 5 way chase for the title instead of 6:

Roushfenwayguy (GHOST PICKS)- 146 (87)

Bored at Work- 141 (82)

Sfrye-              140 (81)

Foreplus-         132 (72)

D2Moo-            124 (85)

ILL55INI-         112 (70)

So the top 2 are extremely close, foreplus and D2Moo still are in the hunt, as 17 points can be made up pretty easily in 3 races, and ILL55... well he's gotta start making some good picks...

2 Handicap: 16th-22nd

+8 handicap: Anyone Below 35th

Bonus for this week, guess how many laps the driver with the most laps led leads, now because of the vast variability in this, you will have a 25 lap margin to choose from, that means you can guess from 0-25, 25-50, 50-75, and so on, but your 25 lap margin must be a multiple of 25, so no 18-43 laps led, that will get too confusing. If you get the margin you chose right, +4 bonus to you, +2 if you are one margin away, zero for anything else.

Ex. I choose 75-100 laps led, and Carl Edwards leads 124, I will get 2 bonus points.

Any questions with this bonus do not hesitate to ask.

I'm going with Kenseth, duh, and Edwards should close the door on Stewart, so lets do that too.

Roushfenwayguy (GHOST PICKS)-Matt Kenseth, Carl Edwards (bonus= 200-225 laps) Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon  Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski

Sfrye- Matt Kenseth, Greg Biffle (+2 handicap) (bonus: 125-150) Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick   Trevor Bayne, Dale Earnhardt Jr.                                 

Bored at Work- Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth (175-200)  Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr. David Ragan, Trevor Bayne                   

Foreplus- Denny Hamlin, Carl Edwards (75-100) Kurt Busch, Jeff Burton   Matt Kenseth, Greg Biffle                   

ILL55INI- Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth (100-125)   Kurt Busch, Denny Hamlin Kevin Harvick, Dale Earnhardt Jr.

D2Moo- Jeff Gordon, Matt Kenseth (150-175) Jimmie Johnson, Denny Hamlin    Kevin Harvick, Dale Earnhardt Jr.

RFG's Eliminator Chase Race 7

Well, Talladega took out a lot of good drivers, 7 of the twelve chase drivers finished on or below 25th... luckily there was a safety picks, but even a lot of safeties found trouble. We also had two other problems, first off Bored at Work picked a safety driver that was not on a handicap list, therefore he doesn't get a safety... not like Jeff Gordon did much anyways. Second Fogducker failed to make picks, on any game, and so he got random autopicks which don't have handicaps. He definetely suffered, as he got Regan Smith and JJ Yeley, even on a week like this, there may not be coming back from that... so lets see how awful everyone did.

Roushfenwayguy (GHOST PICKS)- 59

1.) Sfrye-                                   59

Bored at Work-                           59

3.) Foreplus-                              58 (Both her drivers were between 15th and 20th, unfortunately, that means no Jeff Burton safety.)

4.) ILL55INI-                             42

5.) D2Moo-                                39

6.) Fogducker-                           16 (Please make sure to make picks, this is what can happen if you don't.)

So ya, nobody higher than 60 points... that's Talladega for you... its still fairly close though, and there are 4 weeks to make up the gap if you have one, so lets go onto Martinsville.


2 Handicap: 16th-22nd

Greg Biffle (replaces Kasey Kahne)

David Ragan

Marcos Ambrose 

Juan Pablo Montoya

Mark Martin

Paul Menard (from +4 to +2)

David Gilliland

Casey Mears

Dave Blaney

Andy Lally

Robby Gordon

J.J. Yeley (replaces Tony Raines)

+8 handicap: Anyone Below 35th

The bouns for this week, is to guess how many laps down the 30th place driver will be, you do not need to guess who finishes 30th, just how many laps he is down. in 2010, it was 45 laps, and in 2009, it was only four, so there definetely is some variability here. +5 for the exact amount, +3 for 1-2 off, +2 for 3-5 off, +0 for anything more off than that.

Jimmie Johnson, going with him now, and my other driver... best go with Gordon now.


Roushfenwayguy (GHOST PICKS)- Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon (bonus= 5 laps) Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski

Sfrye- Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick (bonus= 8 laps)  Trevor Bayne, Dale Earnhardt Jr.                                 

Bored at Work-  Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr. David Ragan, Trevor Bayne                   

Foreplus- Kurt Busch, Jeff Burton (+4 handicap) (bonus= 3 laps)   Matt Kenseth, Greg Biffle                   

ILL55INI-   Kurt Busch, Denny Hamlin (10 laps down) Kevin Harvick, Dale Earnhardt Jr.

RFG's Eliminator League Week 6

Sorry for getting this up so late guys, lots of college work as first exams are coming up. Anyways... Kenseth finally got the win, Jimmie Johnson actually crashed... at Lowe's no less... must be because River Rat picked him. And then there is Kyle in second, a very odd 1-2 at this track, but someone still managed to get both of them which makes me wonder if this person has a cheat sheet... yes I'm talking about you ILL55INI... anyways, lets see how the rest of us did, and who the other person is (cough, me) that is eliminated.

FINAL SEGMENT

1.) D2Moo-              277 (93) (5 bonus) (Brought us all to 'fantasy' school during this segment.)

2.) ILL55INI-           272 (96) (5 bonus) (Got the cautions exactly right too... same as D2Moo... maybe ILL55INI has a time machine?)

3.) Foreplus-            250 (80) (0 bonus) (Only female remaining makes it to the final round.)

4.) Sfrye-                 240 (80) (1 bonus)

5.) Bored at Work-    234 (54) (3 bonus) (Put up just enough of a lead to buffer himself from Jimmie's late downfall.)

6.) Fogducker-          233 (58) (0 bonus) (Didn't have a great week, but it was good enough.)

ELIMINATED

7.) Roushfenwayguy- 227 (76) (1 bonus) (Made a valiant effort with Kahne, but in the end, it just wasn't enough.)

8.) River Rat-            188 (49) (0 bonus) (At least he's going out in style... if finding the worse chaser is considered style...)



So for the first time since this game began, I will not be making picks, I know it will be hard trying to make picks without having my amazing picks to guide you, but I believe all of you can get through without me... and now for the new handicap lists that will last for the rest of the game.

2 Handicap: 16th-22nd

Greg Biffle (replaces Kasey Kahne)

David Ragan

Marcos Ambrose 

Juan Pablo Montoya

Mark Martin

Paul Menard (from +4 to +2)

Joey Logano  

+4 Handicap: 23rd- 29th

Martin Truex Jr. (from +2 to +4)

Jeff Burton

Brian Vickers

Regan Smith

Jamie McMurray

David Reutimann

Bobby LaBonte

+6 Handicap: 30th- 35th

David Gilliland

Casey Mears

Dave Blaney

Andy Lally

Robby Gordon

J.J. Yeley (replaces Tony Raines)

+8 handicap: Anyone Below 35th


The bonus should be of no surprise to those that have played my game before, that is the safety pick, since this is Talladega.

The safety pick is simple, pick someone that IS IN A HANDICAP LIST, their handicap is reduced by 2 (I.E., Greg Biffle, if used for your saftey pick, has no handicap, and Bobby LaBonte has his reduced to +2.) Here is the new rule to the safety pick this year. IF AT LEAST ONE OF YOUR DRIVERS FINISHES BELOW 20TH, AND YOUR SAFETY PICK FINISHES AHEAD OF YOUR WORST FINISHING DRIVER, THEN YOUR SAFETY'S POINTS ARE USED INSTEAD OF YOUR OTHER DRIVER. The only difference from before is the below 20th part, if both your drivers finish in the top 10, and your safety pick wins, sorry but you can't use him, the safety pick is used to prevent catastrophy from wrecks, not to essentially give 3 picks.

REMEMBER: In this segment, you may only use a driver once and only once, and this segment lasts until the end of the season, that means that you must pick 10 different drivers, I'll keep track of which one you have and haven't picked.

For me this week... oh yeah.. I'm not picking... well... you know what, it is my game, I'm going to put in 'ghost picks' for the rest of the season, just to see how I would have fared just incase I did survive... so I'll go with Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski... and Jaime McMurray (+2) for my safety.

Roushfenwayguy- Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski (safety = Jamie McMurray (+2 handicap)

Foreplus- Matt Kenseth, Greg Biffle (safety = Jeff Burton (+2 handicap)

D2Moo- Kevin Harvick, Dale Earnhardt Jr. (safety= David Ragan)

Sfrye-  Trevor Bayne (+8 handicap), Dale Earnhardt Jr. (safety = David Ragan)

Bored at Work- David Ragan (+2 handicap), Trevor Bayne (+8 handicap) (no safety: Didn't read rules) (+3 bonus)

Fogducker-

ILL55INI- Kevin Harvick, Dale Earnhardt Jr.  (safety= Juan Pablo Montoya)

RFG's Eliminator Chase Race 5

Well, two races down this segment, and Jimmie finally wins, of course six of our eight contestants decided to go with JJ, so there might not be much made up ground at all, but lets check, just to be safe:

PODIUM

1.) D2Moo-                184 (97) (+2) (+5 bonus) (Wow, he almost broke the 100 barrier!)

2.) Bored at Work-     180 (94) (+1) (+4 bonus)

3.) ILL55INI-             176 (87) (-2) (+5 bonus)

NON-PODIUM 170 CLUB

4.) Fogducker-           175 (92) (+3) (+4 bonus)

5.) Foreplus-             170 (86) (+1) (+2 bonus)

DANGER ZONE

6.) Sfrye-                 160 (73) (-3) (+3 bonus)

7.) Roushfenwayguy- 151 (63) (-5) (+4 bonus) (The HMS drivers looked great, then Jeff Gordon wanted to see what the garage was like.)

8.) River Rat-            139 (57) (0) (Finishes last again, but still could find a way out of the bottom two.)

Well, not as close as I would have thought, mainly due to Jeff Gordon leaving those that chose him in the bottom of the totem pole. Anyways, we still got another Lowe's and this one is sure to shake things up, so don't think that those that are even up top are safe, because anything can and will happen here.

Segment Two will last 3 races, weeks 29-31, TWO people will be eliminated from the game at the end of the segment. You must use AT LEAST 4 different drivers, and you can't keep the same driver for all three races, meaning you only have to switch one driver out each week. (Refer to segment one rules for ties.)

Segment Three will last 5 races, week 32-36, THE WINNER will be declared, and so 5 people are virtually being eliminated. Every week you must pick different drivers, meaning you must choose 10 UNIQUE DRIVERS. (Incase of tie, the tiebreaker will be whoever got the most points through this segment WITHOUT HANDICAPS OR BONUSES, if there still is a tie, then the person who has the highest scoring most recent week will be declared the winner. If there still is a tie, then whoever made the picks first each week will win, because someone is obviously cheating Tongue out.)

Bonuses will be given for each race.

And now for the bonuses:

Bored at Work, for picking 7 winning drivers will get a +3 bonus throughout the chase, congratulations!

Now for the newly revised handicap lists, these will last through the first five weeks of the chase.

2 Handicap: 16th-22nd

Mark Martin

Martin Truex Jr.

Juan Pablo Montoya

David Ragan

Marcos Ambrose 

Kasey Kahne

Joey Logano  

+4 Handicap: 23rd- 29th

Paul Menard

Jeff Burton

Jamie McMurray

Regan Smith

Brian Vickers

David Reutimann

Bobby LaBonte

+6 Handicap: 30th- 35th

David Gilliland

Casey Mears

Dave Blaney

Andy Lally

Robby Gordon

Tony Raines

+8 handicap: Anyone Below 35th

Bonus, guess the amount of caution flags, unlike previous weeks, the scoring system will be much more strict, since cautions are usually less plentiful than our other two previous bonuses.

+5 if you get the exact amount of cautions flags
+3 if you are 1 off
+1 if you are 2-3 off.
Just 4 off and you miss your chance, so the margin is much smaller, and many could find themselves without a bonus considering how many cautions can show up here.

For me, I can't pick Carl Edwards and Jimmie Johnson... CRAP! Well I'll go with Kasey Kahne at least... as for the other... well... I guess I have to go with Kurt Busch, because Kyle and Jeff Gordon are coinflips at this point.

The first set of crossed out drivers you can't use at all.
The second set of crossed out drivers you may only use one of, not both.
