The Website updates are complete and the website is open for registration. I won’t send out a email reminder until we are into preseason football but if you were just checking the status we are open for registration so feel free to join.

There are a four changes to the pool this year outside of cosmetic changes. The first being I have increased both pay pools entry fee. The $100 pool is moving to $150 (Still less than $10 a week) and the $30 pool is now $40 (Less than $2 a week still) I’m not sure what this increase will do to participation rates but even if there are less people I don’t mind the concept of less people playing for the same or even more money.

The second change is how the maximum bet logic is handled. Unlike previous years the maximum bet amount is now the maximum combined amount that can be placed on any one game. So unlike prior years when you could risk up to the maximum on both the spread and also on the over/under from now on the maximum amount is the total you can wager in any combination on a the game. I think this will allow people to risk their money on the bet they like most.

The third change is how I determine the maximum bet amounts on each game. In an effort to make it easier on myself I will now just rate the games on a 1 to 5 scale and the maximum bet will correspond to the rating. 1 Star =$200, 2 Star =$400, 3 Star=$600, 4 Star=$800, and 5 Star=1,000. The rating will be determined based on a few factors, quality of matchup, importance of game, TV coverage, rivalries, etc. Each games rating will be clearly marked on the Make Picks Page and there is a scrolling box on the home page with all 3 star and above games each week.

The fourth change is I will no longer award any prize money to the last place finisher in the $40 pool. I’ve received some feedback from players that poor performance shouldn’t be rewarded so that money will now be split amongst the top five players only. For specific details of payouts please see the Prize Money section located in submenu under the Home Page menu bar.

Remember I count on you to help recruit new players each year, I think the pool sells itself after you play it one year but getting fresh blood into the pool is still important. As always I thank you all for your support, and look forward to another great year.
