    TheRX Presents: THE 6th ANNUAL
    2017 LV HILTON STYLE NFL SUPERCONTEST


    This Year we are Including an Early Bird Special.
    * Register and Pay by July 31st 2017 and you will be including for the Last 3 Weeks Mini Contest, Prize $1,000 ( Winner Takes ALL )
    ** The person with the Best Record in the Last 3 Weeks of the Contest will take home the Prize.
    Tie Breaker Rules will be set shortly


    RULES :


    1. The season long non-refundable entry fee is $200.00. Money Order Entries accepted Until Wed, Sept 6th 2017. Pay*Pal Entries accepted until Sat, Sept 9th (ALL Payments must be received by Sat, Sept. 9th 2017 @ 3pm ET). Entries must be submitted before making selections for Week 1.

    2. Each contestant will use his RX user name ONLY. ( No Team names ) * Max Two Entries

    3. Actual cash prizes will be based on total number of contestants ( will be posted on or around Sept 12th )

    4. This Contest is based on picking winning teams against the Spread. Contestants must select five teams per week. ( Sides Only )
    (a) Contestants may not select both sides of the same game. Any violation results in a double loss.
    (b) Any selections that are duplicated will be graded first by the actual outcome and any subsequent duplications will be automatic losses.

    5. Please note all Contest Lines listed in the drop-down menu are playable, even if the game goes OTB (Off the Board) at a later date.

    6. Contest winners will be determined by the total number of points accumulated during the NFL Football regular season. Each winning selection will be credited with one point. Ties (pushes) count as one half point.

    7. Contestants must submit their weekly selections by 4 pm Eastern time each Saturday afternoon, except when contestant wishes to use any game that starts before the deadline. If a contestant wishes to use any game that is scheduled to start before this deadline, ( ie, Wed, Thur or Sat game ) their 5 weekly selections must be submitted prior to the start of those games. Any pick set using an early game that is submitted late will be charged with a loss for any game that starts before the deadline. Any contestant who fails to submit weekly selections by 4:00:59 pm Eastern time on Saturday will earn zero points for that week. This time deadline will be strictly enforced.

    8. Weekly Lines will be Posted Each Wednesday Night ( we will use LVH Lines ).

    9. Only RX Members can Enter to Play ( You MUST have an RX User name and have at least 25 Posts to Enter, and 50 by Contest End ).
    * If you do NOT have at least 25 Posts, Do NOT Enter, your Payment will be Returned
    9a. Don't have 50+ posts, by the week before the end of the Contest ... well if You cash, You will get 10 % deducted.
    because This Contest, along with the CFB one was put together for the Posters of the RX
    It's not fair for the RX posters that come here weekly.

    10. Tie-breaking rules:
    Tie-breaking rules will be applied to determine first place only. Entries tying for second through 10th place, will equally split aggregate prize money from the respective place. If ties exist after the NFL Football regular season for first place, the champion will be determined based on the entry that accumulated the most contest points during the final three weeks of the regular season. If total points accumulated during the final three weeks is equal most points accumulated during the fourth to the final week will determine the winner, and so on weekly (in reverse order), until the tie is broken.
    In the unlikely occurrence of a tie after the tie-breakers, co-champions will be declared and the aggregate prize money will be split equally.

    * A Google Form will be provided to make your Weekly Picks. They will appear on the accompanying Spreadsheet, released after the 4pm Saturday deadline.

    Final Breakdown of the Prizes:
    Prize Pool : $$$$$ (# entries)
    1st Place
    ...... 40% ...... $
    2nd Place ...... 20% ...... $

    * If you plan on entering BOTH, pay for both together. If you want to pay separately, then select the appropriate contest, pay for it, then make a second entry for the other one and pay for it.

    Read this:

    If Using PP, Enter Email Address ~ If Using Money Order, Enter Mailing Address

    If you guys plan on entering BOTH, then you must pay for both. If you want to pay separately, then select the appropriate contest, pay for it, then make a second entry for the other one and pay for it. Thanks.

    BAS - who do I send payment to via PP? Also, if I enter via PP, would I have to be paid the same way if I should finish ITM?

    you sign up here and after hitting submit, the PP info will show up. Your choice on how you want to be paid. Will have to get with BAS to coordinate the payout.

    When you sign up, the information comes up on the confirmation
    No, you don't have to be paid the same way. That's why I always ask after the season is over to contact me with the info
    Because some PP accounts have a Max.

    Payment sent, thank you for running again. Is there any chance Rx forum can run a winner take all survivor pool for like $10 per entry this season? Teams can only be used once, it may generate a lot of interest.
