    JOH, when is the starting date for making picks in the football contest?

    CFB and NFL? Thanks for monitoring these contest for us.
    May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please, but the
    opportunity to do what is right.

    College may start on Sat 9/12. Will know more when we know more if we ever know more.

    It's all spelled out on the signup page

    The professional football regular season must consist of at least ten (10) weeks for these NFL SuperContests to be considered valid.
    If the regular season is shortened to less than ten (10) weeks, the 2 NFL Contests conducted here at the RX will be cancelled and all
    entry fees will be refunded.

    Likewise, the college football Division 1A regular season must consist of at least eight (8) weeks for the CFB SuperContest to be
    considered valid. If the regular season is shortened to less than eight (8) weeks, the CFB Contest conducted here at the RX will be
    cancelled and all entry fees will be refunded.

    Truth be told... with the piss poor turnout up to now, which I fully understand, I don't see much hope for competition happening this year. With a couple weeks left before Week 1 kickoff, there needs to be a huge upswing in signups or we throw in the towel.

    Totally understand if you must cancel. How many signups do you think are needed to have the NFL pick 5?

    I was still interested in getting back in this year. I was just waiting till it got a little closer to the season to make sure something crazy doesn't happen with the season (covid reasons). Maybe others are doing the same?

    Probably so. I would not be surprised if 25 signed up in the last couple days ... that would be 35 total. Seems reasonable even if the pot is more modest this year.

    That would be doable.

    Not sure if u kept the emails from last year ... but i bet if you emailed them all, we'd hit 35! Just a suggestion. Or if you would like help, send me the file and I'll email them all.

    I'm under contract to do 14 weeks of College. May have to confer with my agent to extend if necessary.

    Joh, looks like 12 sign ups so far for nfl. Even if we only got 3 more signups, that's a pot of $3000. If that happens, how about just giving a first place of 2k and a second place of 1k. While its not ideal, that gives cash to 2 of 15 ... a pretty good attempt for all or if you get 20, give out 2400, 1200, 400 for 3 places. Thoughts?

    I just signed up for the NFL pick 5.

    I played last year but I didn’t see my name under the options to select so I had to re enter it.

    I’ll get my money over tomorrow. I’m sure a bunch of people are going to sign up last minute.

    To be honest I wasn’t expecting online pools to be hurt to bad I thought maybe half the numbers compared to usual. It’s my local football pools at bars that are really taking the worst of it. You have the NFL season to worry about it playing all the way through and then on top of that you have to go into the bar, wear a mask everytime, put yourself at potential risk to drop off a football sheet and on and on.

    Anyways I think these pools will get a good push in the final 2 weeks.

    I'm in for both... JOH only question I have is if we get this in this year will you re-calculate payouts to maybe less paid spots? Just curious as there seems to be a much smaller pot and at the same time we're all here not only trying to dethrone the defending champs in their respectable contests, but also to take home a chunk of cash too.

    Seems to be about 23 signed up now for the NFL contest.

    If we get to 40 that’d be pretty solid. $8000 pot.

    I would also be open to paying a smaller amount of people. Obviously JOH can decide what the final call should be.
