I've been racking my brain trying to come up with a fun, inexpensive, yet rewarding challenge for the "geniouses" of ChiefsPlanet.

Here are my thoughts:

Each player predicts the W/L record for every team in the NFL.

To reward accuracy, a point is awarded for each win predicted, but points are deducted for predicting more wins than actually occur.

Explanation:

If you predict the Chiefs go 4-12, but actually end up going 6-10, you would get credit for the 4 wins only.

However, if you were to predict they go 6-10, but only go 3-13, you'd receive zero points. (You would get credit for the 3 wins, but be penalized 3 points for the difference in record.)

An additional 2 points is awarded above and beyond W/L records for each division winner accurately predicted.

The player with the most points at the end of the regular season is deemed the winner.

We could play for $5-10 per player, winner take all - or we could do like the Gambling Challenge, and play for bragging rights.

25 (or less) spots in the challenge would be drawn at random out of all interested players.

Suggestions are welcome to make this better...

Who's interested?

I'm interested. I vote for cash. I like the plan you have in place as is.

Funny, you're one of the handful of people I was thinking about when I posted this. I figured you'd be game...

So you're saying only play for $250 casino dollars?

Either for bragging rights, or $5-10 per player, CASH.

Have to figure out how to pool the money, Paypal would rape us. Lose money sending it to me, then the winner loses another cut when I send it to them.

I figure people will take it more seriously if $250 is on the table, but I'm fine with doing it for bragging rights as well...

Gotcha.

I'm down if we can figure out a way to get the money cheaply in Escrow.

Just another idea but an over/under on total wins for the season for each team with casino cash would be cool as well.

Well, then I guess you're in charge of researching our options...
