    Mock Hilton Contest...........Posting Deadlines !!!

    I would recommend you read all the Mock Hilton Contest rules very carefully, but these two rules below are very important and there will be NO exceptions to the posting deadlines.

    #3 The Posting deadline for the Sunday and Monday games is Saturday by 12:00 Midnight EST. Please read rule #7 for Wed, Thurs. and Sat. games.

    #7 The Wednesday-Thursday-Saturday rule: If you're using a Wed, Thurs. and or Sat. game in your picks then all picks must be posted in one post at least one hour before the earliest NFL scheduled kick off time. See rule number 4.

    "Mock Hilton Rules"

    This contest will be modeled as closely as possible after the "Las Vegas Hilton Super Contest"...........$50.00 entry fee.

    #1 NFL sides only. Contestants must select five teams per week, per entry. Contestants may not select both sides of the game.

    #2 We will use the official Hilton line which I will post by Wednesday evening.

    #3 The Posting deadline for the Sunday and Monday games is Saturday by 12:00 Midnight EST. Please read rule #7 for Wed, Thurs. and Sat. games.

    #4 All picks must be posted in one post. In the event you're unable to post your picks because of technical problems please email them to rockets101@aol.com

    #5 No corrections or editing of picks is allowed.......be careful, could result in a 0-5 for the week.

    #6 This contest will run for the regular season of 17 weeks @ 5 picks per week = 85 total picks. 1 point for a win and 1/2 point for a tie.

    #7 The Wednesday-Thursday-Saturday rule: If you're using a Wed, Thurs. and or Sat. game in your picks then all picks must be posted in one post at least one hour before the earliest NFL scheduled kick off time. See rule number 4.

    #8 Tie Breaker Rule: In the final two weeks of the Mock Hilton contest (weeks 16 & 17) the top 5 contenders must email their picks to rockets101@aol.com Picks will be posted after the Saturday 12:00 o'clock deadline. If a tie still exists after week 17 we will take it into the NFL Playoffs.

    #9 Top five winners payout: 40%, 25%, 20%, 10%, 5%

    #10 Winners will be asked to verify payment before prize money is released.

    I would recommend tossing that 1 PM deadline for newbies next year. Creates confusion, advantage and hard feelings just for one or two more entries.

    Or allow everyone the 1 PM deadline for week 1.

    A LOT can happen from Midnight to 1 PM in Week 1 of the NFL. Always some game time decisions on key players and significant line moves, etc.

    nope, they don't do that in the real hilton. Wouldn't be a mock if there were allowances. Just because people are too lazy to read the 10 bullet points or too stupid to comprehend doesn't mean the rules should be bent to them.
    Boys already issued week 1 was a warning and that's fine. But week 2 and on it's listed plain for all to see.

    And if you adjust for next year then a) they won't learn and week 2 will bring the same excuse with the added 'but last week....' b) people will just wait until before 1pm which is not in the spirit of the contest.

    That's why I would say no late sign-up next year for Newbies so there is not even a question and not an advantage for anyone in Week 1.

    I posted late and got dinged with a 0-5 penalty but would have gone 1-4 anyway! That and when you consider the only reason I finished 5th last year was because the guy ahead of me missed the Week 17 deadline I guess you could say Kharma has been satisfied! :D
