Arrow 2017 Major Wager CFB Bowl Contest Discussion Thread

Hello Players. Going to do the thread just like D.G. did last year.

Here we go.

Welcome to the 14th Annual Major Wager Bowl Contest
If you played in this before or are trying it for the first time, the rules are simple and easy to follow.

Entry Fee - $500 P.M. Clevfan for details.

Prize Distribution
1st 50%
2nd 30%
3rd 20%

Deadlines

Entry Fee Deadline - December 15, 2017 @ 11:59 pm EST.

Picks Deadline - December 15, 2017 @ 11:59 pm EST.


First game:

CELEBRATION BOWL

Dec. 16, 2017 | 12 p.m. ET on ABC

Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, Georgia

Goon will decide when lines go up. Will be posted as soon as available, we are aiming for Monday, Dec 11 . Once lines are posted they will not change.

Picks - each player picks 15 games. Five 3*'s, Five 2*'s and 5, 1*'s. Teams may be used only once, you cannot pick both sides of a single game.

Games that have a solid number (no half point), and land on the number, will be graded as a win of half of your * bet. Example: Michigan is listed -7 over Florida State and they win by exactly 7 - a 2* play on Michigan or Florida State would both receive 1 point.

Should a game not be completed as originally scheduled within 72 hours of scheduled kickoff (vegas rules, at least 55 minutes must be played), the game will be graded as a push. This applies to venue, teams involved, power outages, acts of god, terrorism, etc.

The person with the most Stars will be the winner. If there is a tie, first tie breaker will be highest record in 3* games, second tie breaker will be highest record in 2* games. If still tied, we will set up a tie breaker on the national championship game, if still tied, all winnings will be split evenly.

If you have any questions or concerns, this is the place to address it. Let us know about your commitment to play so we can get an idea who's in and who's out. Don't forget to let your friends know about this holidays tradition.

All the best to all of you for the holiday season!

I will try and watch everyday because I love this contest. Clevfan of course has ultimate say if anything arises. Nothing ever has though:)

Celebration Bowl. Every year the names of these stupid bowls get worse and worse. How about the Kompromat Bowl? The HT show can be Russian hookers peeing on a Trump mascot.

The Buck$wope Syndicate is the favorite year in and year out, the rest of us just play for 2nd.

CTG, I posted last years sprdsht. 16 out of 30, was actually good for 1st-3rd. It was a rough year.

There’s still a chance. .05 bitcoins will clear Coincunt before the deadline next week. If bitcoins hustle double again or I somehow go crazy this weekend, I can enter.
