    Mock Gambling Competition - 2013

    MOCK GAMBLING 2013

    Here we go then fellow Rams. A lot of you guys are very knowledgable about football and the Rams in particular, and this is your chance to put your (pretend) money where your mouth is.

    In this post you will hopefully find all the guidelines, information and help that you need to take part in this years Mock Gambling Competition. If you are unclear ON ANY ASPECT of the competition then please feel free to PM me or post in this thread and I’ll answer them to the best of my ability.

    Thanks to all who entered last time. I expect the competition this year will be very similar.

    Last years winner and defending champion - Viper
    Runner Up was - BigGameHolt81
    Third was - richtree


    Mock Gambling Competition - What is it and how is it run?






    • Everyone starts with a fictitious $1000
    • This year, the competition will again run for as long as the Rams season. E.g. if the Rams reach the Superbowl (here’s hoping) it carry’s on till the end . If the Rams lose in the Wildcard Weekend, it stops there etc.



    The Mock Gambling Competition is a part gambling, part predicting competition. Each member starts with a fictitious $1000 in their own money pot and can bid/gamble as much as they like of that on the "Game of the Week" - spread included (which will usually be the Rams game).

    Each week there will be a number of questions which if you call correctly puts more $$$$ into your money pot. You then can gamble as much of your money pot as like like on the following weeks “Game of the Week”.

    If you lose everything then don’t worry, you remain in the competition and can build your money pot back up by answering questions correctly.

    The winner is the member with the most money in his/her pot at the end of the Rams season.

    You make your bets/predictions/answers by simply posting on the thread each week, the mods always make each separate weekly thread “Sticky” so you can easily find where we are all up to.

    To be anywhere near successful you will need to take part almost every week throughout the season.

    It is free to enter, open to each and every member of the Clan and taken seriously albeit having fun and enjoyment along the way!

    The winner will receive “rep” and a line underneath their Avatar for a year to show their victory.

    Rules and Guidelines to help you along

    1) Generally there are NO rules set in stone in which we adhere too, it's all done on a fair, honest and most of all common sense system. The only 1 rule we stick to is that any Bets/posts/predictions posted after the deadline each week are declared void – you have the best part of 4-5 days to make your picks/selections each week, if you rush to get them posted at the last minute and miss the deadline you only have yourself to blame.
    2) Each member starts Week 1 with a fictitious $1000, it's up to each and everyone how you spend the $$$$. If you miss Week 1 starting on Week 2 you'll receive $750, Week 3 - $500, Week 4 - $250, Week 5 $100, Week 6 onwards $50. etc etc
    3) If your $$$$$ reaches $0, You are only ledgeable to part take in answering the questions/predictions each week, until you gain enough $$$ to make a bet on the “Game of the Week”.
    4) Usually sometime on the Monday/Tuesday after the weekends games i will update the scores, post the standings, and set that following weeks "Game of the Week" spread, questions and predictions.
    5) Any issues/disagreements are simply talked through with me. Remember guys this is a fun competition not life and death, I'll be as fair and honest as much as common sense will allow.
    6) For the official recording of stats/yardage NFL.com will be used.

    Any further questions/issues/answers you may need please PM as soon as and i'll happily answer them.

    The Week 1 spread and questions will be posted very shortly in this thread.

    Good luck to all who take part this year I hope we have some good banter, enjoyment and fun.

    Cheers
    John
