How about 2 consecutive draws eliminates you.
Do you mean for drawn games or if Spurs/Ronny lose tomorrow?Did we decide on rules for draws?
I'll go with whatever is decided. I just meant it we may start next week, I wanted to know what they rules were.Do you mean for drawn games or if Spurs/Ronny lose tomorrow?
If the former...we haven't decided anything. I get what people are saying regarding the "feel" about players advancing with draws. But at the same time, this thing is going to be over before 1/3 of the season has been played. Do we need to make it harder?
I don't care for the first suggestion but love the second. Unless that makes it much harder on @candylandriotsIt's fun. i'm in whatever the rules.
Suggestions and that's all they are:
-Draw is ok but you must win the next week. 2 draws in a row = out.
-Can pick a team 2x but second pick must be a win - if you're going to go back to the well you can't skate with a draw.
Thank you all for your feedback. We are going to take this week off, and then start again in Week 14. This is partly because I'm moving on Tuesday and things will be hectic enough, partly to give everyone a break and time to strategize and partly so you guys can hopefully have some time to recruit some additional players.
I am not going to make any changes to the rules this time around. You can still pick each team up to twice. Ideally, I'd like to get this thing large enough for next season that we can hopefully go an entire season through instead of lasting only 12 weeks. That might mean some rule tweaks then. The best suggestion that I've seen is that if you pick a team a second time, they have to win instead of just draw. We will talk all that out before the new season starts, but for now, we will have exactly the same rules as the first time around.

paypal?Just a reminder - we are a go for this Saturday. Get your picks in to email@example.com and payments to firstname.lastname@example.org ($20). All are welcome--so share with soccer friends, or better yet, people who have never watched! Same rules as the first go. Feel free to ask me any questions here.
Just sent mineAnd sorry to keep banging this drum, but we're missing a lot of players from the first time around. So hopefully you're all just waiting for the last minute
Apologies for my disorganization though the past few weeks with getting this restarted. The pool will run more smoothly than getting it restarted has been.
I just posted w/r/t the actual PL competition that I think they should shut it down, the cancellations and need to dip deep into the rosters threatens the integrity of the competition.As it currently stands, it looks like we have eight games scheduled for Sunday (Leeds and Watford still unable to field teams, so their games have been postponed. I have some thoughts on that, but I guess this isn’t the place.)
Should we go ahead with picks for Boxing Day? I was thinking that we could maybe set a minimum game requirement of say, at least 6 matches must be played for it to be a valid week. Please provide some feedback on these two ideas (play Boxing Day and automatic suspension with fewer than 6 games being played in a game week).
