    I hope they see this.

    Why do we do this? The real SuperContest just splits the money among the tied places. I thought we always try to go with what they do.

    I know. Posted earlier about being done, with 2nd and 3rd being split.
    winandwin doesn't post here beyond his picks, so not sure where he stands.

    Regardless, The Boys and Monroe Eaford kick ass in running this and they
    deserve a ton of credit for carrying all of us through the contest.

    #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 bettorsworld@gmail.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.

    End of Story....................

    I know it's in the rules. Just asking why, even though I certainly don't have any skin in it. Guys usually get all worked up that we follow the real SuperContest, until we don't.

    Why complicate it and go an extra week and risk pissing off a winner who figured it was over like the real SuperContest? Not suggesting breaking the rule this year, but it's a suggestion for next year that I expect most would approve since it is more in line with the real SuperContest.

    "Mock Hilton Rules"

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

    This is just for kman and winandwin right. To figure out 2nd and 3rd. No need for anyone else to submit and can't move out of those spots (blackcat remains in 1st). I assume.

    yes just for kman #1 and winandwin to determine the 2nd and 3rd place winner.

    Maybe someone could email winandwin and let him know. Someone has his email since he emailed his picks in the last week or two. Just to be sporting about it. He may agree to split it and end it. Otherwise, it could go drag on through the SuperBowl, and you could still be tied.

    If these two soild players want to split 2nd and 3rd place money and have agreed to such they should be allowed to do so- IMHO

    We're going to play by the rules that have been in play for 5 years.

    They could both just not make any picks the rest of the year and thus remained tied....Whats the point?

    Just to cause trouble here, I'm surprised they have to pick all 4. Since we typically only play 1/3rd of the games, I assumed it'd be "best play".
