Yeah still all goes back to the winners. A few suggested and I think we won't lose many over it. This one $300 and college $200

Glad to see a bigger entry fee this season. Wouldn't the break down be a little different with the $300 fee and not last years $250???

Maybe New Example:

100 Entries = 30K

1st = 60% of remaining

2nd = 25% of remaining

3rd = 15% of remaining

4th would be $800

5th - 7th would be $550

8th - 10th would be $300 (or is next year going to be $250 again?)

I see us having well over 100 contestants this season......

And this year for those that don't follow the rules have there play not count???

It's not hard to use rotation number / full team name and or both teams involved selections on totals.

For Example:

#452 Denver Broncos +2.5
#452 Denver / Carolina Under 43

Not hard to do and easier to grade.

All of us can read and it is important to FOLLOW THE RULES!!!

I have been in this contest the last four years and have always had a great time. I will do my part to promote the contests to all my friends and looking forward to a big turnout.

other ideas.... in the last 5 weeks of the contests ONLY to top 10 may hid there plays until kickoff (plays sent to Jack va message) and then posted once all Top 10 are in.

Just ideas to make this contest assume and if not that's ok but I will be signing up for all the football contests!

Scout.

Yes actually that is correct. I didn't adjust that part and copied from last year. The prizes as you typed will be used with 100+ entries. I will update post 1 later

Quick question:

What is the limit of entries we can have for this contests? Last year, if I remember correctly, there was a member that had 2 entries.

I think it should be one entry per user, but no more than 2 for sure

Max of 2 per user. Some people were playing one for someone else.

Just for clarification - 2 per username.

I disagree with that because of side action. I haven't played before but from what I see here people like side action at least some anyway and it's great fun and keeps you pretty much in the contest until the end. As a matter of fact I think the page/pages that have picks should be hidden from the first week till the end.

If you have two entries can you bet the opposite sides of a game.

EX: Jets Vs Giants

One card bet Jets
2nd card bet Giants

I believe the answer is yes, though am not certain. Certainly dont see why not since it'd be the person's choice if he wants to play his entries like that.

hang on, i miss-read the rule being a new idea,, we have had the options to forward our plays last few weeks in past.. new rule would put in effect top 10 only having the option to do so, so basically the same but only allowed by top 10??

i'd still be cool with either.

Two different entries can be opposite picks. One entry has nothing to do with other. We treat it as two different people. However one entry may not play opposite sides

I'm in. Haven't paid yet. Want to see if I can do it the easy way. From a payout. NOthing is ever that easy so I will probably pay the week before debutante kick. This will also probably be my last contest. Survivor Big Boy too big for this boy.

I will usually take them right up to the kickoff deadline if I can but it is best to get in earlier.

Also I moved the conv concerning side action to the heads up thread. Let's keep this one with contest info only. Ty & GL
