It's almost that time of year again!

I have decided to take over managing the pool this year because we can't have this lapsing part way through every year. I feel really bad about breaking tradition since Ryder has been doing it since the beginning, but it has to be done.
I promise the payments for the last two seasons will be resolved eventually, I have all the figures on them, I just need some cooperation from Ryder to sort out the money paid and pending. As soon as I'm able to make progress on that I will; for now all we can do is go on with this one.

As usual there will be two separate competitions going on through the season. There will be the regular Weekly Pool where you pay in each week you play and we have a weekly winner. There will also be the Cumulative Pool which has a one time entry fee and runs all season with one winner at the end. Rules and information for each follow:

The Weekly Pool:
Each week you want to play, post which team you think will win each game that week here in this thread. Then guess what the total combined score (TCS) of the Monday Night game will be. Send $5 to bookworm, with your TCS in the donation comment. Then just sit back and see how the games turn out.

The person who predicted the most correct winning teams wins that week and collects the pot of entry money. If there is a tie the winner will be the person who sent in the TCS prediction that was the closest to the actual total combined score of the game. Because of this, TCS predictions are first come first serve, if someone else already guessed what you send in you will be asked to pick another. (If you end up going to the tiebreaker and the other person who sent that TCS doesn't you will be allowed to use your original prediction.)

Be sure to remember to send your TCS with your $5 entry fee! This season the scores for each week will be tallied all at once after the Monday Night game, so there will not be a last minute chance to get one sent in if you go to the tiebreaker like there was when Ryder did the tally after Sunday Night. Send it in at the beginning so everyone has one and we don't need to do last minute scrambling to sort it out. If you do not end up sending in a TCS and you go to the tiebreaker the other player will win by default no matter what their guess was. If all players in the tiebreaker fail to send in a TCS prediction they will have to split the prize money. But let's just avoid all that by always sending the TCS with the money, then we'll always be good to go.

This contest is run week by week, you don't have to enter each one. Simply post your picks and pay your fee when you want to play. Be sure to post your picks early; any picks posted after kickoff of their respective games will most likely not be scored.

The Cumulative Pool:
This contest is like a supplement to the Weekly Pool. Anyone that wants to get in pays a one time entry fee of $10 to bookworm now and the person that has predicted the most total wins correctly at the end of the season wins the pot.

This allows every week to count for something. If you're just doing the Weekly Pool you either win or you lose, and if you lose there's no compensation. This is very frustrating if you lose by only one or two games, or lose on the tie breaker. You got so close, but you don't get anything to show for it. If you're in the Cumulative Pool, those close losses aren't in vain. They will be added up at the end of the season for the total win contest.

Each week you post the teams you think will win each game, just like in the Weekly Pool. The only difference is you don't send in a weekly fee with this one, this was a one time payment. You don't have to post picks each week if you don't want to for some reason, but be aware that because this is one continuous contest that runs through the entire season missing a week significantly lowers your chance of winning.

If you are also playing the Weekly Pool, your picks for that will count for this. Unless you want to make a different set of picks for this contest. If so, be sure to clearly designate which picks are for which pool. I don't know why someone would want to pick differently for the two, but you never know.
If you are just playing the Cumulative Pool and not the Weekly, please clearly designate your picks as "Cumulative Pool only" when you post them. This will help me keep things straight when doing the scoring.


If you want to participate in the Weekly Pool no notice is required, you can simply pay your fee and post your picks when we get started. (Week 1 begins September 10th)

If you want to participate in the Cumulative Pool you must announce your intention to play and send in your entry fee by season kickoff. You can't enter after the season starts and you can't back out once you've entered.

You can participate in either or both of these contests, they are completely separate.

You can also participate in the Adrenaline Rush Pool. Which is cumulative, but has an entry fee of $50 for that extra rush and excitement in your life. Money for that should be sent to me. And scoring for that is based off whatever bookworm says to be correct for his pool because he's good at these things.

I believe you of course Top, but in deference to precedent and transparency I will not be scoring that pick for the moment.
If you end up losing the week or the season by one pick we can revisit it.

I don't know if that should be allowed... can you just blindly copy someone's picks? Seems unlegit. :noway:
