    Never bet a hockey game in my life but I'm in. Sounds like a lot of fun. Will send money order.

    So it appears that we can bet games at different times on the same day. Am I reading that correctly?

    wondering if we delay the start one week ?

    Go with what we have and make it Winner takes all ?

    or if nobody wants to do the above .... go with the 5 entries and just do a NFL playoff & Super Bowl contest, Winner takes all ??


    thoughts from everyone ??

    I don’t mind to push back the start...I would like to get at least 10 entries to make it actually worth it for 4 months.

    i would also be open a NFL playoff contest with the 5 entries

    I’d say ats & o/u on each since theres only 11 games but open to anything. Or maybe instead/in addition you have a running total score on how many points right or wrong you were on selection & highest total wins. For example if i take kc -4 & they win by 14 i would be +10.

    I kinda like this where picking most total wins is a winner with a running Margin of Victory (MOV) used as a tiebreaker. You pick your own line on spread and totals.

    Example:
    101 Tennessee Titans
    102 Kansas City Chiefs

    1) Pick the winner and your Margin of Victory
    2) Choose the Over/Under & total # of points in the game

    Scoring:
    Say you pick Tenn to win by 3... and Kansas City wins by 7
    You get a LOSS and MOV is off by 10
    For Totals:
    Say you pick Under 44˝ and the actual total ends up 33
    You get a WIN for the Under and MOV is off by 11˝

    So result for that game is 1-1 (21˝)

    Do this for all 4 Wild Card Games this weekend and the same format for the remaining games thru the Super Bowl.

    Most Total Wins claims victory with the smallest running MOV total used as the tiebreaker.

    Hi guys.

    I was looking forward to the 3 sport contest for an extended period. I have no problem with extending the start date to allow for more entries. I think that it should be regularly and prominently displayed on each sports forum as well as the Offshore Forum. Can't believe that we can only get 5 or 6 entries. Guarantee that most don't even know that this Contest is about to start.

    I think that the NFL Playoff Contest should be a separate contest, and should be advertised on all the forums as such. I would be happy to send a separate second entry fee for said contest.

    That's my preference but I will agree to the consensus or whatever BAS and JOH decide.

    Thanks.

    we can do both ... just to give it a little more time to grab more for the Triple

    also, there are threads in I believe 3 or 4 sports forums.

    I'll bump them
