Gooner Online Premier League Tippers

Post by SammyDroppedHisShorts »

Okay here it is folks a little earlier than planned but all the same here it is.

PLEASE READ THE RULES IF YOU CAN, ITS NOT VITAL YOU DO, BUT IF YOU DONT WANT ME WINNING ITS BEST YOU GET AN IDEA OF THE BORING SMALL PRINT ON OFFER they are lengthy but should help you understand any of the issues that may arise.

In this comp we tip the FAPL (English Premiership League) football games --- each week we go head to head against another participant in the comp to see who can tip the most games correctly. Scoring is the same as in the English Premier League.


RULES

1) EVERYONE is expected to post tips for EVERY round (even if you have a bye)

2) Tip each premier league game for the round --- Pick either team to win or pick a draw

3) Score 3 points if you get more correct tips than your opponent --- score 1 point if you and your opponent have an equal number of correct tips --- score 0 points if your opponent has more correct tips

4) Deadline for posting tips is kick-off of the first game each round

5) For a bit of fairness and to prevent my inbox overflowing with private PMs....the second person in a match up needs to try and make one of the fixtures different in outcome to prevent draws. This may occur later in the game when it heats up...i would like it that for example if Projoe was to play Rebel, whoever tips second makes sure they try and change at least one different outcome. For some people like myself i just tip and will probably not compare.

6) Players must tip once when possible, editing selections can cause problems for me as i have to keep up to date with these edits and may place results based on the original tips. The idea of this game is to tip a set of fixtures, changing your mind after selecting tips really goes against the spirit of the game. I will feel the need to penalise all players who edit their tips. If i am correct in saying edit times are shown, so as long as those edits are placed BEFORE the deadlines i will accept them. If an edit has been made AFTER a deadline then points will be deducted. Complicating this game makes it less enjoyable, if you do select then you should stick to your original tip. If you later find that a player has tipped identical to you, then thats the way it goes. I suspect someone will make this issue a problem and with this i have only as much patience as the next guy.

7) If any one player fails to tip three tips running they will be removed from the competition and all results carried over to any person who is in reserve. If there is no reserve then the fixtures for that person will be expunged and the division the tipper was in will have a 28 game league as opposed to 30 game league.

Sign-up & Default: You must sign-up to participate in the Gooner Online tipping comp. I really need people that will tip every round ... it will be a nightmare to run this comp with people tipping once in a while.

Frequent defaults by one or more participants may skew/greatly affect the results & standings tables, effectively ruining the comp for those participants who post tips each week.

16 tippers is the maximum I can have for this competition in two divisions.

Hopefully there will be no defaults ... defaults will be closely tracked.

In the event of a default, all outcomes (win, loss, or draw) will still be possible / we will have to earn any points we receive for the match.

The scores of everyone except the opponent of the defaulting tipster who posted tips for the round will be averaged to determine default (this default score/average of all posted tips except those of the opponent of the defaulting tipster will be the defaulting person's score) --- the non-defaulting tipster will get 0 points/a loss if they score less than default/the average of all posted tips except those of the opponent of the defaulting tipster ... 1 point/a draw if they score equal to default/the average of all posted tips except those of the opponent of the defaulting tipster ... 3 points/a win if they score higher than default/the average of all posted tips except those of the opponent of the defaulting tipster

example: Player A forgets to lodge picks vs Player B

Default score for Player A would be determined by averaging the scores of all participants except Player B (Player B's score is not included when determining default) who posted tips for the round ... the average is 4.67 ~~ default/Player A's score would be 4

... if Player B had 6 right, he wins 6-4 and Player A gets a 4-6 loss
... if Player B had 4 right, it's a 4-4 draw for both players
... if Player B had 3 right, they lose 3-4 and Player A gets 4-3 win

When a bye (Average Al/Alu) is your opponent: Bye will receive default as its score -- your score will be your tips -- scoring for the standings will then be as per all other match-ups.

EXAMPLE: Player A vs Average Al / Player B vs Average Alu

Average Al's score will be default / default is the average of all players except Player A (Player A's tips are ignored for purposes of determining default for their opponent) who posted tips ... Average Alu's score will be default / default is the average of all players except Player B (Player B's tips are ignored for purposes of determining default for their opponent) who posted tips (Note: Bye 1 and Bye 2 will not necessarily have the same default score)


If you default and your opponent is Average Al/Alu ... Bye's score will be whatever the most accurate tipper (highest goals for to the end of the previous week / from the standings table) scored for the week and your default score will be determined as per usual for the comp

EXAMPLE: Player A vs Bye1, Player A defaults

Player A's score will be the usual default -- average of all tippers (except their opponent, which in this case is bye) who posted tips for the round ... score for bye will be whatever the most accurate tipper (highest goals for to the end of the previous week (from the standings table) scored for the week / if there are multiple tippers with the most goals for, average their tips only to determine the score for bye

ie Player B has the most goals for (most correct tips) to the end of the previous round -- Player B scores 7 for this round, bye would get 7 (Player B's score) as their score

or

Player B and Player D are tied with the the most goals for (most correct tips) to the end of the previous round -- Player B scores 7 and Player D scores 5 for this round, bye would get 6 (average of Player B and Player D's scores) as their score

Sorry for the long length of the above but it is one area that really needs clarifying.

I will post four sets of fixtures today, then when round three is complete a further four sets will be posted. This gives anyone who is off on holiday a month to sort their tips out if need be.

I hope you all enjoy this and we can have some fun.

There will be two divisions of 16 teams

No one division is superior to the other.
Players were randomly selected with my fixture generator.

Division: Gooner Group A

SammyDropped
Flash
Franksav
Projoe
Olgit
Jamjc
Gusher
Augie
Goonersid
DB10
Nick's B Ego
KevStarkie
Eboue-Why?
Cockerill's Chin
Lagerisgood
G88ner

Division: Gooner Group B

Rebel
XDaveyx
Mikey
GreenGooner
MegaGooner
AFC1886
Donaldo
SamiS
Goonersam
RoscommonGooner
KingJayson
Paperclip
RossieGooner
OnlygotoneSong
TeeCee
Boomer

Each player will play 30 matches (the first 30 sets of Prem Fixtures)
Then after game 30 the two divisions will be split into four divisions of eight teams. Similar to the SPL. More of this at a later date.


Prize for overall champion to be decided.

Any questions feel free to ask but can i ask if they are of personal issues such as colaltion of results and so on could you PM me...i wont answer questions on here that are to do with collation of results....i may make one or two mistakes along the way with the amount of data being put together.
