If you want i will set one up using the same site i use for the Nascar contest. Great site and people really enjoy it (Tournamentpools). I have one set up with the same rules i used in post 1. Let me know. If yes i will fix it up as 2 options in this thread. If no, i will delete it. I will only take PPal as a payment method though. Nothing else.

Not sure if you have ever used the site but they charge $1 per entry. We paid the fee in Nascar too but that one was $2 per entry. It is well worth it though because the site and features are great. I have to send the entry fee right after the tourney starts and i can do that. Shouldn't be a deal breaker but figured all should know. Payouts would be based on $99 per person and you could PM me the payouts you want and i will post them there as the ADMIN.

Office Football Pool is a great site, very slick and easy to use!

$100 bucks is a little steep for me. But, I'm down w/two slots on the $25 pool. Thanks wayne.

Is this how scoring is working for each round? So basically whoever gets most right in Round 1/2 wins.

Round of 64: 1
Round of 32: 1
Sweet 16: 2
Elite 8: 2
Final 4: 3
Championship: 3


Think the way we used to do was 1/2/4/8/16/32. Have to have a chance to win if you get final 4/champ correct.

A lot of people do 1 point for every game, period. This is how i have always done mine and it works. The further your teams go, the more you benefit. I would never use that scoring you have there. Basically you get a couple final 4 teams right and the winner, you have a chance. I like all rounds to matter a little bit. In that scenario rounds 1 & 2 don't mean much

Not even close. If someone has 24 right and you have 20, those points can easily be made up if your next rounds are right and the guy with the 4 point lead slips. I have done it with that scoring for years and it usually comes down to the final 4 and title game every year.
