First off, a little history:

Rookie League: PaulDixon186 $1800
Prep League: Fred Ex $11,000
University League: reddogrw $88,748,360
RegMinors League: reddogrw $1,000,000,000

Yeah, reddogrw has been eating this competition up. Hats off to you man!

I am thinking of tweaking things this coming season, assuming there is still interest. So I want to throw my thoughts out and see if you guys are in or not. Here's my draft plan:

- Only one betting option this coming season. You pick all six games against the spread.
- Going to combine this Pick 6 with a confidence points feature. So you must list your 6 picks in order of confidence (the first pick should be your most confident, the last your least confident).
- Payoff multiplier is based on your first incorrect pick:
---You must get your first 3 picks correct or you lose your bet.
---If your first miss is your 4th pick, you win your bet amount.
---If your first miss is your 5th pick, multiplier is 3x your bet amount.
---If your first miss is your 6th pick, multiplier is 6x your bet amount.
---If you get all 6 picks correct, multiplier is 12x your bet amount.

Thoughts? Open to tweaking it if you guys don't like it and will give it a run in the preseason, at least as a new option to the old Pick 3 & Pick 3+1.

Wow, hard to believe the preseason kicks off in less than 24 hours! Back to an afternoon sim for us. Been a busy offseason for me with lots of exciting PP & WLE things going on (some public, some behind the scenes). As we get closer and closer to the PRO level, the competition is getting fiercer and fiercer. Hats off to all the owners, coordinators, and agents that are leaving a stream of active forums and great competition behind us at each level! Letís rock this all the way to the top!

You guys up for trying this betting thread again? reddogrw has embarrassed us the last two seasons, leaving us in the dust by midseason. Heís good at this so I think we need to take a different game:

- Only one betting option this coming season. You pick all six games against the spread.
- Going to combine this Pick 6 with a confidence points feature. So you must list your 6 picks in order of confidence (the first pick should be your most confident, the last your least confident).
- Payoff multiplier is based on your first incorrect pick:
---You must get your first 3 picks correct or you lose your bet.
---If your first miss is your 4th pick, you win your bet amount.
---If your first miss is your 5th pick, multiplier is 3x your bet amount.
---If your first miss is your 6th pick, multiplier is 6x your bet amount.
---If you get all 6 picks correct, multiplier is 12x your bet amount.

So letís give it a shot for the preseason, although the lines are pure guesses at this point and obviously not much gameplanning going on. Again, you must post the winner of each game (against the spread). List them in order of your confidence, your payoff will be based on the first game you miss (not how many). We will start everyone out with $1000 for this preseason experiment (will probably up that to start the regular season).

So, place a bet and pick your winners:
Preseason Week 1 lines:
WAR HAMMER vs STALINGRAD (-13.5) - WAR HAMMER 20-9 WAR HAMMER
Odyssey vs Insanity (-2.5) - Odyssey 29-13 Odyssey
Chaos vs Comets (-7.5) - Comets 30-10 Comets
Copperheads vs Gofers (-14.5) - Gofers 34-17 Gofers
Palookas (-10.5) vs 4th Street - Palookas 66-0 Palookas
War Dawgs vs Hurricanes (-17.5) - Hurricanes 59-0 Hurricanes

We start with $1000 for the preseason play. Ready? Go.

Well, interesting first attempt at this new PickCon 6 game. xxflip showed itís not so hard Ė getting all 6 picks correct for the x12 multiplier and a cool $6000. But the only other winner was PLAYMAKERS, getting his first 3 correct to win his bet amount. The rest of us? It didnít go so well. AlBarsch lost all his starting money so I am resetting him to $100.

Anybody else want to give it a shot? You can start with $500 if you want to give it a try. We will reset everyone to $5000 to start the regular season.
