    Just thinking about how to run a pool for the Superbowl? A fiver get's you 5 picks, max 10 picks unless it's not filled. The sponsor (pool runner) would randomly pick and fill in the 100 slots from the entries then shoot a Jpeg and post the filled sheet. The day of the game the sponsor randomly picks the numbers and posts the final, completed sheet? The entrants ship their entry fee direct to the winner?

    I don't do much, if any, trading and bombing on the forum so I wouldn't have a dog in the hunt and would not play so I could volunteer to run the pool.

    Any thoughts? Would you restrict entrants to members with established trading credits or time on the forum?

    I would think the only way to do it is to make it a winner take all pool, no quarters. Final score at official end of 4th quarter so entrants with the same number for both teams still has a chance to win if a tie prior to overtime

    If this did take off, check back into other contests for length of time on the forum, trader ratings etc. to even play. This does seem like a cool idea.
