    Return of the MOCK GAMBLING Competition for 07/08

    MOCK GAMBLING 07/08


    Ladies and Gentleman, Boys and girls i here announce the opening up and start of this years Clanram's Mock Gambling competition for 2007/08.

    In this post, you will find all the guidelines, information and help you may need to set yourself up to take part, IF you are unclear ON ANY ASPECT of the competition, by all means PM me or post in this thread and i'll answer them to the best of my abilty.

    Before i start just a quick recap from last years competiton -

    Last years winner and defending champion - Ramsbruce (won by $5600 ) - Runner up was Richbert88, and 3rd LA RAM. Hope to see Ramsbruce return to defend his title.

    39 Clanram members were involved in the competition last year, it'll be nice to see that number increase.

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

    The Mock Gambling Competiton is a part Gambling part predicting part forecasting competition, Each and every member will start with fictious $500 (Increased from $250 last year). Within that starting $500, you bid/gamble as much as you feel you wish too call on
    1) Outcome of the Rams game each week(Spead included)
    2) Following the Rams spread there will be a number of questions and/or some forecast/predictions which if you call correct will gain you more $$$$. Of course by the end of week 17 whoever has the most $$$$$ will be declared the winner.
    3) You make your bet/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 upto.
    4) Week 4, 8, 12 and 16 i will set 'Bonus questions/predictions' thus giving players who are lagging behind the chance to catch up.
    5) To be anywhere near successful you will need to take part almost every week throughout the season.
    6) The winner, apart from having bragging rights, does get a small jesture from the Mods, T-shirt or pen something small. etc etc
    7) It is free to enter, open to each and everyone of the Clan and taken serious albeit having fun and enjoyment along the way.
    8) The overall winner of the competion for this season will be given their own unique Avatar/Sig Icon in which they can display for all to see in every post they make on the forum.

    Rules and guidelines to help you along

    1) Generally there is NO rules set in stone in which i adhere too, it's all done on a fair, honest and most of all common sense system. The only 1 rule i stick to is that any Bets/posts/predictions posted after the deadline each week are declared void.
    2) Each member starts Week 1 with a fictious $500, it's upto each and everyone on how you spend the $$$$. If you miss Week 1 starting on Week 2 you'll receive $400, Week 3 - $300, Week 4 - $200, Week 5 $100, Week 6 onwards $50. etc etc
    3) If your $$$$$ reaches $0, You are only ledgeable to part take in answering the questions/predictions each week, until you gain enough $$$ to make a bet on the Rams game.
    4) Usually sometime on the Tuesday after the weekends games i will update the scores, post the standings, and set that following weeks Rams game spread, questions and predictions.
    5) Any issues/disagrements 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, 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 are to be found in the following post

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

    Go Rams

    Wishes
    Mark Preston

    I wish you luck for the Competition, may the best man win.

    Mark

    Mark, what happens if no one scores a sack or TD in week 1? Or is that a valid guess too?

    Quite simply as of last year -

    If NO Ram scores a TD and/or NO Ram records a sack during week 1 nothing is gained nor is nothing lost no one gains any $$$$

    Just this season i intend to keep the leading rusher/receiver as a 'Roll-Over', if no one called correct the 2 names the bonus will carry over until won

    However, come on! can you honestly say WE wont score a TD and record a Sack??

    Regards
    Mark
