OK, Weegie and I discussed the points system for this season and the following is what we came up with.

Predictions should consist of a score and one goalscorer. Any more than one goalscorer in a prediction and the prediction is [color="red"]void[/color]. Points will then be given out as follows:

Posting a valid prediction, [color="SeaGreen"]+1[/color]
Predicting the correct result (i.e. Win/Lose/Draw), [color="seagreen"]+2[/color]
Predicting the correct score, [color="seagreen"]+2[/color]
Predicting a correct goalscorer, [color="seagreen"]+1[/color]

Predicted goalscorer fails to score and receives a yellow card, [color="Red"]-2[/color]
Predicted goalscorer fails to score and receives a red card, [color="red"]-5[/color]


Any further amendments to the scoring system will be posted here, as will the league tables (every so often).

you get a point just for getting the rules right?

although the red and yellow makes it interesting.

Yep, we figured it would encourage people to post predictions, even if they're stupid and always wrong.

The point for valid predictions is to encourage regular playing, and by the rules. If you fuck up your prediction, you're 1 down on everyone else already. Miss a week and the same applies.

You only get the minus points if your player doesn't score. So if Tevez scores and gets booked for his celebration, you just get the goal points and not the deduction.

You might notice Scotty ain't been online recently - that's because he's been on an all-expenses-paid trip for four to Disney World, Florida.

i guess if everyone pays 5 pounds, it'll sum a city kit, or at least a shirt right? we should do something like this. when theres a prize, it gets more exciting

If you can be bothered, it may be worth copying the rules into the first post of each prediction thread. Afterall, we usually get noobs joining part way through the season and unless it's recently been posted in, this thread won't show up on the homepage so they won't know the rules.

Unless you want penalise them for just being noobs, which is fair enough.

You have to sign up for it at the start of the season. Think we'll use the transfer windows for opening and closing it to new entrants. Saves having to log someone on the sheet who predicts once or twice and then disappears.
