I agree, rito but may get 5-8 more at $100.

 

I mean 7 at $200 isnt as good at 15 at $100...

Timely, think we get more with $100?

 

I'd like to do first half. 

 

100 plays.

 

Sides/Totals/1st half and second half. No team totals, no props. Lets not get crazy. 

 

I'd say no MLs. Can't play a team -2 and the ML -140 (double play). I hate that shit. 

of the guys in so far, i don't think $200 or $300 would be a problem. I actually think everyone who entered so far would play for $300 and odds of getting that many guys at $100 to match that prize is slim to none.

 

Rito

you

Kinger

WVU

NBW

fdw?

Me

 

times $300 is already $2100.

 

IDK how big it would really get at $100, and think we probably get more money in the middle with the larger entry and a few fewer entrants.

 

I like ML dogs; almost think we should just cap it similarly to the tripp blows contests, but if no ML's that's fine.

 

No correlation, obviously.

I'd be down for -250 / +250 MLs but I'm not trying to make Boat, or myself go through and verify fucking people's plays and he can't just cut off the PPH at certain # (I don't think).

 

Let's say $200 entry

 

100 plays

 

Sides/Totals/1h/2h

 

MLs... tbd

 

Are we going to allow someone to play a team -5 FH and -10 for game?

no correlation, imo. you turn a 100 play contest into a 50 play contest by allowing correlation.

I agree.

 

But, then, you have to have someone back checking w/ a pph.

boat can just post plays - sorry i mean contest - at end of week or contest and they can easily be run through. you violate the honor system, you get auto loss on all correlated plays. simple rule really. would take 5 seconds to double check everyones plays at the end. not like 50 people are gonna be in the contest.

Okay. I don't want standings posted weekly though. Always agreed w/ Boat you should just cap as well as you can and not get to play 5 MLs when down to wire to catch up. Should be best capper.

hmmmm... i would say no full game o/u tied to any 1h or 2h o/u. if you bet the 1st half over you can obviously bet the 2h over though.

halves are fine, as long as you're not playing the game with it, imo. i get what rito is saying, but it's still tied in. the game line was higher and 1h was a dud, but second half is still tied into initial game line.

think we should play for $300 at least with the group you listed. think they'd all play for $300; if anyone has a problem with it then drop it down to $200.

Where is Gabe? 

 

He should be able to risk 8 units on a 1/2 long contest

this is what will happen.

 

gabe will say he's probably in.

 

then gabe will say he's in.

 

then about 5 days before the season, gabe will say he's out.

 

that's the history of gabe in 99% of post up forum contests and fantasy leagues.

100 plays i believe for 1/2 the season. deemer gonna have to write up all the rules outside of that. i'd prefer $300 if everyone already in agrees and maybe we can get a couple more and get to 10 for a $3000 pool.
