P-F13: Paid in Full (Week 10 NFL Bonus)

16 of the 28 teams have paid. What do I do now?



Thinkin' of a master plan
'Cuz ain't nuthin' but sweat inside my hand

EXCUSES:

Whine about the remaining 12 in every email for the next 3 months? - chicainery (CCa)
I'm not into whining, but +3 for the math (28-16). You were always a good student.

Start an over/under on the remaining members to pay out before the end or the regular season. Gary should be a 15:1 odds to pay out before Jan 1 - 93Bronco (GF)
Finally, a way I could profit off of this pick'em game. Establish a gambli-- oh wait, never mind. +3

The government shutdown my paycheck. - Naked Bootleggers (JN), Inconsistent Losers (ANe)
That is why you pay at the beginning of the season.  JN +3, ANe +8

I don't want to make family holidays awkward with a heated discussion about money on the back patio in front of everyone.
It's hard to imagine something awkward happening at a family holiday get together. +3

If I pay before Sunday can I get the 5 points? I swear I'm good for it. - AccidentChild (MN)
Everyone is good for it, until they aren't. +3

How about I pay now? And my excuse is that I suck. And I get 8 points? - Barrel Aged Donkey (KS)
This was my favorite excuse, but +3



'Cuz I don't like to dream about gettin' paid
So I dig into the books of the rhymes that I made

PUNISHMENTS: 

Who are the twelve that haven't paid... I've probably dated them. - Mrs. Carter's Moves (A-C)
This answer is so great. I didn't know whether to put this in the punishment or excuses section, though :) . +8 either way. 

Last warning, then a) kick them out and b) split up their points 16 ways. - The Northmen (ANo)
Like. +8

Halfway through the season and there are still people who haven't paid. You are a chop if you fall into this category. I feel you should implement a rule that if you haven't paid up by next Sunday, 11/10, you lose one point off your total for both college and the NFL. And one point is deducted until you do pay. That should get some people off their ass and mailing the check. - 15 National Championships (CG)
I thought we were all friends, but now I'm going to call everyone chops. +8

Deduct 5 points from everybody that hasn't paid. Or charge a $5 penalty after this week if they haven't paid. - Mississippi Mudpuppies (DR), Pimp Possee (JB)
A penalty sounds harsh, but I guess it all goes into the winnings pot. +8

5 more points if you've already paid. - The Velvet Neutral Ground (JC)
That's a week's worth of picks sometimes. +8

We should use a percentage of our pot to hire Chet as the official Pick-em league muscle. - BlitzKrieg (RK)


I thought that was what we have 15 National Championships for. +8



ENGINEERS:
Check out this spreadsheet. It would certainly eliminate non-payers forever. - Gig'em! (AP)



AND FINALLY:

all i know is "stache" - Beelzebubbles (CCo) 
And that is all anyone ever has to know ...

Lost Cause (JH)

+infinity
