    Yeah. Let’s shoot for the crossover NBA/NHL with no minimums. Looks like this would be the most appealing to all.

    Others can weigh in if I’m being presumptuous. Just wanting to get this going.

    As always, thanks for the assistance JOH.

    I am big proponent of MAX plays 3 games per day, that makes it a month long contest and not a hot streak contest - but I support whatever format everyone agrees on.

    How about a split pot 25% for the most NBA units & 25% for the most NHL units ... and then 50% to the overall units winner.

    This may make it more appealing to people who just want to play the NBA. I would say that if enough people who are on the fence joined anyways it would give more popularity to the contest and would raise our chances of having a separate NBA/NHL contest down-the-road. (run on sentence)

    Cough up $100 and have some fun, what is the big deal?

    I would like to raise the stakes to $150 if we did the split pot. I think it is a good idea for now.

    ***Others please share your opinion about this ~ thanks

    Better idea (possibly)

    NBA/NHL Mixed Contest

    Buy-in $150 + $15 (admin) = $165

    100% Broken up like this:

    33% Overall Units Entrant
    33% to entrant with most NBA units
    33% to entrant with most NHL units
    --------------------------------------------

    10 Entrants $1500

    $500 for NBA
    $500 for NHL
    $500 for Overall

    *There is a good possibility that the people who are at the top of the NHL or NBA units will be fighting for the $500 overall cash prize. It would also make it a little more interesting I think, it adds a little twist to things.

    Except now a minimum # of plays comes into play for each sport in order to qualify which is what we were trying to avoid.

    I too would prefer a separation of the sports but am fine with the crossovers.
    I'd be in for NBA only or crossover with this format would be OK too.

    Any momentum to advocate for this format?

    $110 Entry Fee ($100 Pot - $10 Admin)

    Min 70 Plays Per Month (total plays under 70 charged -1.5 units (-150))
    Max 75 Plays Per Month (All plays over 75 will not count)

    37 Play Minimum Per Sport in order to qualify for prize money.
    4 Play Max Per Day (Excess plays will be NO ACTION.) Do not have to be consecutive.

    Two 3u plays allowed per calendar month. Both can be on the same sport.
    All other plays will be 1u plays.

    Deadline to submit plays will be 7:00 PM ET every day.

    33% Overall Units Entrant
    33% to entrant with most NBA units
    33% to entrant with most NHL units

    33% to entrant with most NHL units
    Essentially, you're playing for minimum 67% of the pot and possibly 100%.

    70 play minimum to qualify for any prize...
    37 play min for 1 sport qualifies for 67% - 33% for that sport & 33% for Overall
    37 play min for both sports qualifies for 100%

    Is it possible to have separate NBA and NHL contests? If this would cause too much hassle for you, quickly scratch that idea JOH.

    With due respect to the NHL players (which I enjoy as well), seems like NBA would get us the most players to start.

    Then after football is done NHL can be revisited?

    I'd like to see both but recognize the toll it could take on JOH.

    Not sure if you mean separate contests in the same month or just NBA for a month or two and then NHL. Either way, we probably need entry fees for both.

    Yes seperate contests, seperate entry fees. Like the other contests. I’m sure we’d get a good turnout for NBA, hockey possibly too.

    I will offer both options to get sign ups. Based on the interest for each one, we will make a decision on whether we go with one or both.

    I signed up for the dual contest but I would definitely prefer NBA only as I never play hockey.

    I mentioned earlier that I edited the signup sheet for those that signed up for Both. I changed it to NBA. If you plan on entering the NHL Contest, then yes, please sign up again for the NHL. Separate entry fees for each one. Thanks
