We should do some kind of contest or pool. I'm not sure if Mission is going to volunteer this year. I personally don't have the time to organize one, but would like to participate in something.

are you talking about a free roll that the Wizard would pay?

I am willing to run a poll and do the work but it won't be a free roll. I will ask Mission what his plans are this season.

Poll: means just post the pick/opinion?? Contest:means pick and a prize?
I like the contestant to put up something. Say $10 for amateur, $50 for professional/real gambler. Get a reputable member to hold the money. And I suggest Wiz to add some spice into the contest.

ESPN, CBS Sports, Yahoo and others run this type of game. Each player has to register with them, but the website would do all the work. I am not sure how many players can get into one pool though.

Any money would, of course, have to be administered separately.

I would let him participate, but he has to post up front. No credit.

lol that pretty much screws us.

I can not escrow because I don't have paypal. If Wizard is able to escrow I would have no problems with that, maybe we give him a free entry as a donation for the escrow duties.

what software, no offense but if you need someone to show you how to do it then it is in all of our best interests to have someone else do it.

I have been running polls, tournaments, and leagues for nearly 20 years. There are plenty of automated sites and there are easy ways to do it on a spreadsheet.
