Default Suicide Contest

OK GUYS & GIRLS

Here we go!!! I would like to start getting a head on how many people will be doing this...

Rules are pretty simple but will post just for the new comers...

#1 I WANT EVERYONE INTO THIS!!!

Pick one game a week

If we have more than 50 people in this then come week 10 we will be picking 2 games a week...

You CAN NOT pick the same game twice...

Games need to be in BEFORE GAME TIME!!!

We will be using BOOKMAKER Lines that are posted at 9AM EST SUNDAY MORNING. Not 5 MIN before Gametime... If you get STEELERS -6 at 9 in the morning on Sunday and they go to -7 at Noon then either change your play or deal with it... You can change your picks up to 5 min before Gametime. If the timeline on SFP says 12:56 and your game starts at 1 then I am sorry but will not count. Your Original pick will be used.

Not being a jerk guys but I have been doing these OVER 20 Years! I have heard and dealt with just about every excuse there is...

Also if you take The Jet's +6 and the final score is Pat's 30 Jet's 24 then it is a tie and you advance to the following week...


If there are any other questions then feel free to ask. I will answer them. I would like everyone to know how this works if they are new and not familiar with these type on contests.

There are NO stupid questions so please feel free to ask. If you are new to these type of contests and don't understand then it is OK to ask.

Let's have a GREAT FOOTBALL SEASON everyone!

Default Re: Suicide Contest

I see what you are saying and that makes it easier but the problem I have run into with that is injury reports change lines. When the lines come out Tuesday and it is Lions +10 at GB then Sat night Rodgers steps on his dogs toy and is out for the game it goes to Lions +3 it is a Gimmie for everyone to jump on Lions +10.

I am in pools that do it both ways to be honest. It is hard either way but I think it is more challenging doing it by 9AM Sunday morning but I am open to doing it Tuesday as well if everyone would prefer it that way.

This is why I want to get started now with it. Get some good things brought up before week 1. Nice point Ozzie

Good point about people not being around... The way we have always explained it to some of the knuckle heads in out pools is that they have time to place their bets Sunday before kickoff so take 15 seconds to give us a team but we can do it that way. I have no problem with that.

So the #1 thing I will do starting this off will be posting all lines Tuesday when they are realized by BM. If a line is not out yet then 1st line they release for that game will be the one we use.

Any other suggestion's from anyone feel free to jump in!

Question! You said that you can't pick the same game twice. Does that mean repeat games in the season or that if you pick a game you can't pick either team again?
