Daily Bragging Rights and the BFFB

Are you guys ready for Fantasy Football? Before you guys get all excited about signing up in the same old year long leagues I have a proposal. I would like to sponsor the Blogger Fantasy Football Battle (BFFB). This battle will be held on Fantasy Sports Live, and will work like this.

Each Sunday we will run a $10 10 player league called "Sunday's with Dr. Pauly". These 10 player leagues will pay out $90 in prizes each week $50/$25/$15 for 1st/2nd/3rd. The leagues will also keep forming after they fill up, so we can handle 100s of bloggers in this battle.

We will award points for the top three finishers in each league each week based on the pokerstars TLB formula. Your first entry is what will count for points, though you may enter multiple leagues if you want. Who ever wins the leader board will win an additional $100 at the end of the season. Also, the top three fantasy scores (from a single week) at the end of the year will also win an additional $100/$50/$25.

Now that's a pretty good deal and should be tons of fun. Plus this is not a regular fantasy league. There is no deadline. Just try to play one per week for your best chance at winning.

Just to make it even better for you guys, hit the link on the FSL ad to the right, and you will get an extra $20 free with your initial $100 deposit, or $30 free with your initial $200 deposit. So with a $200 deposit, you can freeroll the first three weeks of the battle, and if you are any good, you may be able to freeroll the whole thing.

So I am offering up:
1) A 90% return of your fees (much higher than the other sites)
2) An additional $275 added as end of season bonuses
3) Up to $30 free per person to sign-up with FSL and make a deposit
4) The chance to have daily (weekly for FB) bragging rights
5) I will also keep track of everything and post the results right here each week

Edit: I thought about this some more, and think I can make it even better. First, I can pull the scores of all bloggers out of the 10 man leagues and for scoring purposes treat each week like a massive Fantasy Football Tournament. For example if 40 bloggers played in a given week, I would put all 40 individual scores together and list them with the highest score of all 40 players earning the most points that week towards the title. So the scoring would be Poker Stars MTT leaderboard formula with top 50% getting points each week. (don't worry you can't fold into this one). I will also do $100/$50/$25 for both end of season total points leaders, and highest individual week scores as well ($350 free money added). Lastly, I will want to play, but I am not allowed to win money on the site per the rules. So any money that I win over the 17 week season will be forfeited into a prize pool for an end of season tournament of champions for only people who won an individual week. Are you guys ready for some Football?

Let me know if you guys are interested. Also use your normal ID when opening an account so everyone will know who you are, or if you want to take advantage of the availability of almost any name, then enter your blogger name for your team name each week.

I'm up for some blogger competition. Only question is, what's to prevent non-poker bloggers from signing up for the Dr Pauly 10-player contests?
I too have been holding off for the football season (I suck at baseball) and should be making my first deposit soon. Will I still get the extra sign-up bonus if I clicked on an affiliate link 2 months ago when I signed up but didn't deposit then?

I am not sure if we will PW protect them or not, so there may be some non-bloggers in an individual leauge, but I will be the gatekeeper in scoring the battle, and non blogger scores will not be concidered. They can't win any of the bonus money either. Becuase evertime we run a multilplayer league we risk an overlay, it is a little dangerous for us to PW protect them. When we roll out Private contests later with PW protection, the host will pay all entry fees up front, and be reimbursed when entires are made. If we have a good grasp of how many will be in this thing, we should be able to PW protect the first several leauges at least.
