All right boys... I lean towards ATS selections but it is Jammer's contest so he's got the ultimate say on the details. Personally I would lean to action points, so you'd be rewarded for correct selection by the # of points you selected plus the # of points you covered spread by, but also punished if your team failed to cover by x points.
I like the 21 vs 21 format so here's the scoop on the "rest of the world" free shot.
Once all the details are set and picks can be made on the invitation side, at a random time (hint I am an early riser), I will start a thread titled "Rest of the World Entries". It will have a sample entry at the top, please respect that format for easy grading. The first 21 entries (not part of the the EOG/Jammer invitation section) in that thread will be in the contest and will have a shot at $600. Your entry will have to beat all other 20 Rest of the World Entries (easy) AND beat the top scorer in the invitation section. Super teaser rule, ties go to the house (you lose). Edited entries will be disqualified.
So check back often and have your entry ready at a moment's notice, if you dilly dally you could find yourself on the outside looking in.
Should you beat both fields, the $600 prize will be awarded as a player to player transfer at a book we both play at.
