View Full Version : Football pot

So I got into this football pot at my home town bar. This is my first year in it but they've done it for several years. There must be 32 players, I'll find out for sure tonight, each player contributes $85. Each week the players are assigned a random game. Each game is assigned to two players. To win, if the total score of a game is 33 then the players assigned that game win $80. Naturally, two players are going to win and have to split the pot. If one week no game has a 33 point total then the $80 carries into the next week. Also, there's special thing at the end of the year, week 17, that only the players who haven't won are participants. And to make sure there's a pot for week 17, $1 from each week's winners is donated back to the pot along with a seed amount of about $40 I think.

What'da think? I probably just gave away $85.

Sounds hokey to me.

At least they're paying out all the money, though.

Well, I'm not real sure about it. When I signed up I'd had a few. Now that I think about it, with the bye weeks, there's not 16 games each week so there may not be that many players. And, I'm not sure what they do with the money when there's no winner in the final week(s). Maybe a blow-out SB party, I don't know.

Interesting, but confusing.

Thought this was a Ricky Williams or Randy Moss thread.

It should be decriminalized.
