PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

"March Madness 2014: Pick 8"
Here, once again, the fun "Pick 8" pool. Since we've had this pool for several years in a row, I've trimmed the first post to just the basics. Thanks to Gothmog for introducing this game to SBOT/RTVW.

Here are the rules:
1. Each team in the tournament is assigned a point value, based on their seed. (See below).
2. Before the first game on Thursday (the play-in games don't count), you must pick 8 teams. You may pick any 8 that you like, regardless of where they appear in the bracket (although it's wisest to pick teams that won't meet each other right away).
3. For every team that you pick, they get their pre-assigned point value each time they win. Once the team loses, they can no longer get any points.
4. You cannot change teams or edit your picks after the start of the first game on Thursday
5. The winner is the person with the most total points. If there is a tie, then the tiebreaker is total number of points that will be scored by both teams in the CHAMPIONSHIP game (closest wins).

Here are how the points are assigned:
Seed....Point value per win
1............1
2-3.........2
4-5.........3
6-8.........4
9-11.......5
12-13......6
14-15......7
16..........8

If you'd like to play, then sometime before tip-off on Thursday, post your 8 teams and the total number of points you think will be scored by both teams in the championship game (to be used as a tie-breaker).
