Consulting ComptrBob for his opinion on our mini-controversy.

FACTS did not break the letter of the law but in my opinion he violated the spirit of the law.

Checking now to see if all six wagers FACTS posted earlier today on the Alabama-Clemson game meet one of the key rules of the event (All plays at -110 or less).

Nothing worse than a handicapping event with hundreds of cumbersome rules but it looks like I must fine-tune the rules later tonight.

THE FACTSMAN rule (Handicappers may submit only one play per event) will be invoked following tonight's game.

Rail crying like the bitch he is.....he forgets all those Olympic picks and little league picks he was giving out with ungodly juice and 50 dollar limits.....

Doesn’t matter what happens in this contest...the best Rail can do is to be 1-4 against Facts....
Rail...maybe you make a video about this matchup.....maybe you get the KTLA pregnant journalist involved...

Halftime score: Clemson 31 Alabama 16.

'Bama is facing its largest deficit of the season.

FACTS split the six wagers he posted today.

Pinny, we had a loose set of rules aimed at making this a fair and friendly head-to-head competition.

FACTS exploited a hole in the rules to his benefit and thus I must re-write the rules so we don't repeat a similar situation.

I don't blame FACTS for finding a loophole in the rules and I don't blame BIRDIE for objecting to the move.

Instead, I blame myself for the lack of airtight rules.

Amendments to the rules of EOG's Octagon will be published later tonight before another contest selection is posted.

UPDATED RULES:

The EOG Octagon is a head-to-head handicapping showdown featuring a winner-take-all purse of 2,500 bananas.

Each contestant provides 1,000 bananas to the prize pot with EOG supplying the added money.

The format is simple: Thirty plays over a 30-day period featuring NFL, NCAAF, NBA and NCAAB plays.

All plays at -110 or less.

Contestants may select full-game sides or totals, first-half sides or totals and halftime sides or totals.

Contestants are allowed only one wager per event.

Contestants will post selections using pointspreads from the following establishments: CRIS, Pinnacle, BetDSI, Westgate and William Hill.

Once a contestant posts a selection, neither the contestant nor the opponent can submit a play in the same game.

To make an official selection, each contestant must submit the following four pieces of information in the post: Betting number, team name, price/pointspread and available sports book.

The handicapper with the higher winning percentage will be declared the winner.

Tiebreaker: Better record over the last 5 plays, last 10 plays, last 15 plays and so on.

At month's end, the winner stays on the court for the following month and the loser goes home, except for our initial showdown which will feature a Best-of-3 format.

I'll try to recruit EJD_5277, HEIM, KANE, NUT6, PINNACLE420, SVBETTOR, TOBY TYLER, VIEJO DINOSAUR, YISMAN, ZZYZX ROAD and others for this space in 2019.
