    Run on Yahoo
    Pick one outright winner per week
    You're eliminated after your second loss
    Can't pick the same team twice

    Last year we had 18 entries, can't see why we can't reach 20 or more.

    Take a chance at some serious money

    Last unbeaten Team Wins $ 1,000
    Second Place Wins $ 500
    First Place wins the balance, $ 7,500 with 18 participants

    One team can win as much as $ 8,500 with 18 participants

    Of course, once it gets down to 2 (or a few), remaining participants can split the pot any way they unanimously agree to



    If we get to 20 or more participants, the payout will be

    Last unbeaten $ 1,000
    2nd place $ 1,000
    3rd place $ 500

    balance to champion

    CY- I'm having trouble contacting 3 of the people from the fantasy football league, they haven't responded to my messages. So I'll send you the $100 if the league folds, hopefully I'll know more in a week. I posted here because I wasn't sure if you check your messages.

    When I start putting this together over the next week, I'll send everyone e-mails to join the contest AND how to make payments. I allow people to join up to like 1 hour before kickoff on the opening SUNDAY, you do NOT have to join before Thursday's season opening game

    I do ask that people use their Rx name if they're Rx members

    Anyone who has an invite and plans on playing, please accept the invite so the roster starts to fill in

    Anyone who needs an invite, PM your e-mail address to me

    Anyone who needs my pay.pal data, it's the same as last year if that helps, otherwise PM me and I'll give it to you

    So far 7 people have accepted invitations, but based on last year's players that have said they're returning and the new entries that have requested invites I expect us to have 20+ entries. Last year I started recruiting in the last week and we wound up with 18.

    Rules and payments found in the first post

    If I sent you an invite and you still intend on playing, please accept it so we can fill out our roster.

    If you need an new invitation, please PM me

    If you need payment info, please PM me. If your're paying by pay.pal, please send money to "Family & Friends" so there are no service fees.



    100% payout, there are NO fees

    So far 8 have signed up on Yahoo and 6 have paid including a couple of guys who haven't signed up yet, Based on the invitations requested and activity thus far, I'd be surprised if we don't hit 20

    I'm aiming high



    Again, everyone who plans on playing please accept invites and I'll start posting the roster here and it will help me to track payments as well

    Thanks

    I just learned that some people are signing up for the current year contest using a name called "2017 Two Strike Survivor". I deleted that contest on my end and can't get back in

    You have to sign up in the "2018 Two Strike Survivor" contest. Next year I'll see if I can just change the name or start using a more generic name like "Willie's Two Strike Survivor" so I can use the auto invite feature.

    Sorry for any confusion, will get this fixed

    I received a payment from an e-mail I can't match up with the people who signed up thus far, please let me know who you are

    Also, Romanian, who are you?
