    Well if we're going to have 2 separate contests, do we add another entry fee? I'm totally confused.

    it seems that most or all are willing to do both, which would mean a separate contest.
    if they want to use their current entry fee, that's fine. or if they want to send another entry fee that's fine as well.

    just that if we can get a few more guys, we can start the triple within a week or so.

    So I'll leave it up to what they want to do.

    Well, I’d rather have at least 10 in the main contest to make it worth while..I’d be willing to up the entry to double or even 500 and have portion going to the NFL playoffs

    We need to settle on a fee for each one so I can update the signup form. Then I'll need everyone to go back and redo the signup process again. Once we get that figured out we should see how the entries pan out.

    Let me put it this way.... what's the maximum you're willing to play for... for each contest?

    I've decided that I'm not interested in the NFL contest. Not sure how it will be structured and too few betting options no matter what the format.

    I agreed to $150.00 for a Triple Crown Contest. I'd prefer to stick to that. Thanks.

    so i understand the increase of the Triple entry fee, not clear on the NFL Playoff contest ?

    are you saying to Add the NFL Playoff contest into the Triple ? or increase the NFL contest as well ?

    because we can do either a $100 or $150 a man in the Playoff one, can go one winner or two ( 1st & 2nd place with first place top heavy )

    With the triple, we could start off with the 6 we already have and hopefully people can come in a week or two later... It doesn't have to be Locked. similar to the CBB contest
    since that's a season long contest. the Triple isn't season long, but it has a large window.

    I believe we have 6 right now ( unless easy money isn't in for the Triple ) that's a Pot of $900, we can go Winner takes all, and as we go along and pick up a few more
    move it to either 2 or 3 prizes

    Guess you can use the example of a $1500 pot, 1st place $1000, 2nd place $300, 3rd $200

    again I'm willing to increase the entry fee ( all need to agree )

    I just want everyone on the same page

    Ah, let’s just roll with it, and hopefully we can get more before whatever start date we decide on.

    Ok, think we should just keep this thread for the Triple

    and start a new Thread for any type of NFL Playoff/ Super Bowl contest
    because I think at this point any new people that have interest comes in here and starts reading about a totally different contest.

    Thanks

    JOH-Yeah seems like LOTS of work on your end for 7 people total, not worth it imo. I’m fine with withdrawing & maybe doing a march madness challenge or something.

    Guess we can wait and see another week ...

    Up the Ante $50-$100 and go with Winner takes All

    Shorten the contest to end May 1st ( this will allow 1 month of MLB )

    Shorten the contest to April 1st ( and leave MLB out ) * changing it to a Double and not a Triple
    * also making it a 200 plays contest.

    Do a 1 Month Contest, ( NBA & NHL )

    Bounce the whole thing for now, and re-visit it in a month or two

    March Madness Contest, which we Do anyway ...

    or any other ideas ....

    Whatever you guys want to do. But I agree that it's a lot of work for JOH to do a 4-5 month contest for 7 Guys


    Thoughts ??

    Talked it over with BAS... he's still out of the country... won't be home until the weekend.

    We decided to put some options out there or ask for your opinions.

    Do we go with what we got with no changes or wait another week?
    I have the score sheet ready to go so we can start anytime. A big test to do this but I can handle it.

    Would everyone be willing to up the entry fee at all?
    Another $50 would give us a $1400 pot and payout would probably be winner take all.
    The extreme would be to double the entry to $300 with top 3 cashing.

    Do we shorten the duration of the contest?
    There was talk of running this thru May but ending it the last day of April might be more feasible.
    There's really only a couple weeks in April where all three sports are in action. Kind of defeats the purpose of a Triple Sport Contest.

    Do we wait until a later date before starting this up?
    A lot of other contests and pools going on right now and coming up where people may feel inundated and just not able to put in the time and energy.

    Do we scrap it altogether?
    What do you guys think we should do?

    I’d vote to wait or just scrap it at this point but will go along with the majority. Would like mlb part of it if so. Think you’re right that with college just finishing & nfl playoffs going on most are already focusing on other pools.
