    Changes to PREDICTION CONTEST format

    So the proposal, which seems to have been met with support from everyone, would see us only using MAIN card fights for the PC's with additional prelim fights added for bigger cards and FOX (Fox only ever has 4 fight main cards) with good fights that involve "known" fighters. This would likely mean 5 fight PC's with some PC's being 6-8 fights.

    Additionally, the OTN contest will be scrapped as a separate entity, but included into the PREDICTION contest as an addition to help with some separation in scoring (as there will likely be a lot closer scoring with half the fights available)

    Scoring I propose would be basically the same as we use now: 6 points for correctly picking the winner, 2 points for correctly picking round the fight ends and 2 points for correct method of ending. Plus 2 points each for correct FOTN and POTN picks. (I initially suggested 5 points each but that could be a bigger decider in the winner of the contest than the actual fight predictions)

    This point is purely a thought and hasn't been addressed yet but we could, if we feel more points and separation may be required, still include the three *** designations that would give those fights another 2-5 points.

    Thoughts?
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    I like all of the above, not sure we need the *** option as well as round and method though, but maybe an option to use 1 fight as a *** to use as a decider in the result of a tie?

    I'm good with whatever you guys decide, it will be nice doing a PC with guys you actually know and heard of, not to mention saves a ton of time that sometimes we don't always have.

    I was just throwing that out there in case we thought with only 5-7 fights that we may need a little more room for separation. I'm good with either really

    Ok, so we're pretty clear on a few things so the certainties are:

    Only Main card fights (with a few exceptions)
    Scrap OTN contest but include in in with the PC for an additional 2 points per correct pick.

    So the only thing we need clarification on is.....and please pick one of the options:

    1/USE 3*** fights for an additional 2 points each
    2/USE 1*** fight for an additional 2 points
    3/USE 1*** but ONLY as a tie-breaker
    4/Do not use *** at all
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Ok, so for the new season starting in January the new format for the Prediction Contest will be:

    Main cards fights only with some exceptions on bigger cards and FOX cards which will include 1-4 fights from the prelims so long as they involve "known" fighters.
    Round and method will be picked for all fights with the same scoring criteria (6 points for picking correct fighter, 2 points for picking correct round and 2 points for picking correct ending method) Additionally, pick 1 fight to designate as a *** pick which if correct will earn you 2 points
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.
