    The 8% goes to JOH for running the contest. We participants are getting a barging for all the work
    he does keeping up with these things. He's proven over the years to be pretty damn good at it.

    Getting paid is the easy part...you got to win the dang contest first.

    I feel u and know 1st hand what a force JOH is contest wise, but it wasn’t specified so I maybe thought the “bankers” got a slice of that. It’s important to have these things sorted and specified before the season, not just worry about it if you win.

    Roger that Mr. D.

    These contest just make the football season more fun to me and JOH is a Pro at running them. Jump in and test your
    capping skills...could be very rewarding.

    I'm in favor of Willie and LTFL getting free entries for their work. Absolutely.

    I’m thinking about it.So same rules as Las Vegas Hilton . Pick 5 Nfl teams with point spread. Entry in by when again 24 hours before kick off. I have no problem chipping in for 8% fee.Also chip in for 1or 2 members entry fee. A lot work. I don’t understand hold money orders. I trust you guys. Is their limit on how many can signup. Or the more the merrier. I am familiar with Willie. I’m for him & whoever else you pick. Ok thanks Baronman

    I appreciate the vote of confidence fellas & dont take it lightly. I’m here to help in the small ways i can to ensure these great contests can continue to be offered. I know football season wouldnt be the same for me without them. JOH is the real star of the show & deserving of all the credit, Willie & I have the easy jobs. I will do my best to stay on top of updating payments as i get them. Money orders will be cashed weekly & not held on my end just fyi. Any other questions please feel free to ask here or pm me. Thanks & good luck!

    Baronman, if you're talking about the NFL Totals Contest.... here's a link to the rules for last year's contest.
    http://www.therxforum.com/showthread...1#post12562479

    There's NO limit to the number of entries we take in. Each poster, however is limited to max of 2 for each contest. Learn the rules. If you enter, I expect you to know exactly how things are run. GL

    Captain,

    The 10 am deadline and reduction of picks from 7 to 5 are the two changes that I'm noticing. Anything else that I'm missing?

    It's six (6) picks per week. That's a typo. Always been 6. Made the change.

    Drega, I'm entering regardless because I'm usually able to adapt to posted rules. However, using a Saturday morning deadline, instead of the previous Friday evening deadline, ensures that most of us will be on the same games.

    I'm assuming we can send in money order once we know who and where to send it? I would like to get on this as last year it took 3-4 weeks for my money order to get to BAS. I'm from Canada it really shouldnt take that long but it did. Thanks for having this. Looking forward to it

    Okie77... The link to sign up has been posted for a week now. It's pasted at the top of this forum page.
    As was the case last year and the year before, the info on where to send money will appear on the confirmation page as soon as you hit submit when signing up. Get on it now so when you have some kind of problem, we can get it straightened out.

    Here's the link:
