O/T FOOTBALL COMPETITION/Prize for winner

Post by gessa »

Are any MOTers interested in a new competition for the coming season.

It's pretty straight forward, Every Thursday I will select 6 games for the following Saturday from the C'ship that kick off at 3pm and all you have to do is predict the correct score of each game. if you select the correct score you get 3 points, if you predict the correct outcome you get 1 point.Tuesday night matches will be posted on a sunday.

eg this saturday Coventry v Leicester if you predict 1-0 and that is the score then you get 3 points but if the result is for example 2-0 then you get 1 point,if it's a draw or an away win no points.

The points accumulate to the end of the season.

Leeds games will not be selected as there is already a prediction league for Leeds games and we won't ko on a saturday at 3pm very often.
All fixtures will be from the C'ship unless there isn't 6 games kicking off at 3pm then we will go down to league 1 to make up the 6

The only rules I envisage are all predictions to be made before 3pm on the saturday and once you've made your predictions no editting.

If you are interested just let me know on this thread


Finally could the powers that be allow ythis to stay on General Chat if it is a goer,just to keep the interest going.

Cheers Gessa

The prize would be the Honour of winning.

Just thought it would keep more interest keeping it on here as sometimes when you look at the prediction forum people kind of curse as they forgot to post because they forget to go on the PF but they go on here first,just a thought :|

So - I have two choices then? Move ALL the prediction threads to General Chat, cos people are too lazy or stupid :nahnah: to remember to use the designated thread - or move this thread to the Predictions Forum, where those actually interested would check in every week?
Why should YOUR prediction thread get priority above the others to be on General Chat?
Not being nasty - I like your idea - just asking like.

People do forget by all accounts,not asking for special treatment it was just a thought Anyway it may not be a goer if there's not enough interest

I'm with Twiggs on this one, there's no point in having a sub-forum, just to have a thread on the general forum.

How about a compromise
Leave it on General for 2 weeks so people can get used to doing it then move it.

FFS! We may as well give up on running an MOT FORUM then? :roll: Do you EVER look at the FORUM INDEX? Did you know I have spent hours posting Leeds video clips (past and present) on here, in the MOT Video Clips forum??
That there is a MOT Meet Up forum on here? And a Photo Gallery of MOT posters?
A Jokes forum?
Technical probs Forum?

If people only ever read general chat, then I truly despair. :roll:

How about a music discussion forum :twisted:

I reckon we leave this thread on here for a few days until the season starts but the actual prediction competition thread goes in the prediction forum.

I like the idea. I agree it should be in the prediction forum. Gessa, you could always post on a thread in general chat to remind people to go on. But then again if posters want to win it then they will go in and put their predictions in.
Leeds is in my blood, always will be.

Cheers Matt, As twiggs as said he will let it run for 2 weeks on here so people can get used to doing it then move it, I'm happy with that,and as you say I can always drop a reminder here and there. So you in too :?:
