Wondering if there would be interest here in a "Tipping" Competition for this season? (which I think is called a "Pick 'em" competition in America?)
It's very popular down here for the football league and is a nice way to stay engaged with the league.

Basically each night (or at the start of each week, or whenever you feel like it) you log in to a website, check a few boxes to guess the winners of the next day's games, and the website keeps track of who is the best tipster, including updating the standings each week.
You can tip any game as early as you want, but each game would get locked out for tipping at a set time before its start time (I'm thinking maybe 6 hours, so that no one gets an unfair advantage due to receiving last-minute injury news and the like, but happy to discuss that one).

I think it could be fun thing if we could get a lot of people involved.

Cool.
Just to be clearer, if I get at least a dozen people interested (either by saying so here in this thread or by messaging me directly) I'll set it up

Sounds pretty cool. I'd try it. Also, I think it would be really interesting to see how the results of our polls would do at picking winners. In theory it might be better than any one person since it reflects the collective judgement - I think its called the Delphi technique.

I'd be in!

I assume the prize for the winner is becoming a moderator, while the ultimate loser gets a ban for a year? Wink

Sounds fun.

And the winner gets to be a mod? Isn't that like saying the "winner" gets to have an unrelenting case of IBD? Talk about a Tom Sawyer whitewashing the fence moment! Wink

Looks like your resume could use an update, Admiral. Wink This one could be just the ticket.

Ok, that's definitely enough people to go ahead with it. I'll reply with further details once I have got it working.

Some nice suggestions above, btw Wink Twisted Evil

*******
UPDATE
*******

Ok, the competition is set up.
* For the purposes of being able to regularly update the standings the season is split into "Rounds", which effectively are just weeks (Monday-to-Sunday)
* It runs for the regular season only
* All times listed are Eastern.
* If you spot any mistakes please let me know
* You can enter/change your tips as far in advance as you want, but every match is "locked down" 5 hours before tip-off.
* Failure to enter a tip for a game will get you automatically assigned the home team for that game
* I'm participating, but for impartiality I'll be tipping the home team in every game, and I've registered another user named "Rebkell Polls" whose tips will be based on the winners of the game day thread polls
* The competition will only be open to Rebkell members. Your username here will be your username on the tipping website. If you have not already done so, please either respond in this thread or PM me if you want to participate
* It's very quick & easy, so please join in! The interface looks like this:
