I PMed this idea to rookie. Hopefully will get a reply soon. I thought it would be a great idea to have a football pool for FST with part of the money going to FST.
For those who dont know what this is... I have made a chart, randomized the numbers 0-9 and put them on each side of the chart. A person who wants to participate in this will donate the ammount for the pool they want to play in to FileSharingTalk.email@example.com . They will then be put in a random spot in the chart. This will give them 2 numbers (one from each column they are in). When the end of the quarter comes, you look at the last number of the team's score. The person that has those numbers wins money. This happens for each quarter. Here is an example.
Say you have #3 for Eagles and #7 for Patriots. You win if the score is:
Eagles 13, Pats 17
Eagles 3, Pats 27
Eagles 13, Pats 7
You dont win if:
Eagles 7, Pats 13
Eagles 17, Pats 23
And so on. Each quarter there is a winner. If the score stay the same throughout the game, one lucky person will win some big bucks.
For the $5 pool, $75 will go to each person that wins in the first 3 quarters, $100 to the last quarter and $175 will go towards FST. I will add some charts for what all the money goes to in a few minutes.
