I would just like to point out the enjoyment I have drawn from being a member of the Predictiob League over the past five seasons, but a couple of things have changed over the past two seasons which in my opinion are not for the good of the competition.
Firstly there was a change made for the past two seasons when a draw forcast for a game predition but not being the correct goals recorded was changed from the original six points to four points for some reason, in my opinion a correct result has been forcast and should be awarded six points. At the present time if someone predicts a 2-1 result, and the actual score is 6-1, he gets SEVEN POINTS, whereas if someone predicts 1-1 and the actual result is 2-2 he only gets FOUR POINTS, can anyone see any sense in this situation???.
Secondly a couple of members put down 2-1 or 1-2 for EVERY RESULT throughout the season, I appreciate that members can put what ever result they wish, because there are no rules preventing this, but this is NOT PREDICTING, it is just putting the result that most matches end in, you may as well make it a competition that requests either a H for home win, and A for an away win. It is much more interesting and fair to see a Sanfran 4-1 or a Cassidy 0-3 PREDICTION., because at the end of the day we are not playing for a row of houses, in actual fact the Prediction League Winner for the nine month long competition gets odds of 4-1 on his stake, and the runner up gets 2-1 on his entrance fee.
These are my opinions only, and before anyone thinks or say anything about being greedy, I have ended all of the five seasons in the top four places each year, and apart from the following years entrace fee being paid, I have always requested Matt to put the rest towards the forum operations fund, but the above two things are a spoiler as far as I am concerned, this competition should be for fun, and members should Predict what they think the result should be, and not 2-1, 2-1, 2-1, 2-1, 1-2, week after week throughout the season, just because it is the most ended result in games.
AS STATED, THIS IS MY OPINION, IF YOU AGREE FAIR ENOUGH, IF NOT THAT IS YOUR OPINION.
