Brackets will be announced on March 11th. I am suggesting the standard bracket contest with just tiered points. Nothing fancy or special. We can run it on one of the various internet websites and collect money via one of the money collecting sites or we can do an honor system pay at the end but if that is the case I am limiting it to known members.

Thoughts?

I'm in. We usually go on the honor system here

Simple and stupid joke. (I miss the joke thread)

One winner? Tie Breakers? Will the play ins count too?

More risk, more reward. I am ok with up to 2 or 3 entries per member.

I am thinking the following: these are not the rules, just opening up discussion.

max 2 brackets per person
tie breaker would be total of final game, second tie breaker would be combined scores of the final 4 games.
play in games are not counted (Unless the bracket sites make you)
I personally don't like winner take all type of payouts so I would like a 1st and 2nd, maybe a 3rd depending on how many brackets. but I will go with whatever we all decide.
In the past I have run brackets where each round had a payout as well but without money in hand to distribute I think that is a little tough to do.
payouts will be done after the final game. it will be up to the winners to figure out the method. To make it easy I say we have options link venmo, paypal, or amazon giftcard. I know a lot of people like using Amazon because you can do it anonymously so If the winner doesn't want amazon cards but the losers want to pay that way I can be an in between.
Only current and known members of WOV will be eligible and since we are paying out after the game we should set a rule on who is considered current and known.
As with any contest, WOV, Mike, myself, or any mod does not endorse not guarantee any payouts.
