PAYMENT UPDATES:

Here is the periodic payment update:

I have now received payment from nine total players, which is fine, because there are over two weeks left until payment is due in order for someone to make Week 1 Picks. If you include myself and WizardofNothing (entry w/donation) we are up to ten players who are considered as paid.

There are also a few players who have made payment arrangements but have yet to satisfy payment. I haven't really been keeping track of those because a few such people did not end up playing last year, so there's no real reason for me to keep track of anything other than payment received.

I'm not terribly concerned, I think that the Entry Fees came in pretty slowly last year, as well, with a huge rash of them coming in during the last week. As I recall, I even sent out reminder PM's to people who had arranged a form of payment (but not sent yet) as well as players from the previous year who hadn't responded to the first PM.

Mr. Average is back to defend his title. (That's me)

My son transfers money via Venmo. Can you accept venmo?

Somewhere in here Mike has stated he is hoping to beat 60% this year again. I will bet giving 2-1 odds that he does not. Anyone interested?

Yep, that occurred to me ! What's not to love ?

Also, it's easy and fun following the standings with-in the contest through-out the season.
I remember the thirty-five sweet goodbyes; When you put me on the Wolverine up to Annandale; It was still September When your daddy was quite surprised; To find you with the working girls in the county jail; I was smoking with the boys upstairs when I Heard about the whole affair;I said oh no William and Mary won't do

PM sent as to the payment.

Do you mean that you are Laying 2:1 Odds? He's over 60% lifetime on this game as well as over 60% 3/5 seasons.

I will bet my $100 to win your $200. Easy bet to take. Do we need to escrow? I don't see any reason that I think you should need to escrow if you don't think I do.

Bet is made. If he makes exactly 60%, it is a tie. Above 60% you win. Below 60% I win. I will let you be the final judge in case there is any question. No escrow needed.

It is done, the Rules of this game are the Rules of this bet. Since Wizard has default Picks in place, he can never have an 0-5 week.

I don't know if you knew about his Default Picks and were hoping he could No Pick himself into an 0-5 week. If you didn't know that such can't happen, I'll give you one chance to drop the bet. I'm all for this bet, myself, he runs 60% even using the occasional set of defaults.

Mission, I'm willing to offer you the same exact same bet the SOOPOO is offering you, for any amount up to $100.00. (I will risk as much as $200.00 to your $100.00.)
