My last change was a cosmetic one, but it would've bugged the heck out of me so I'm glad I changed it.

Also, thanks for running this, UOK. You okay!

I think I should win the "Broken clock right twice a day" award for getting 2 right with bonus points for leaving Minkah off my list. :rofl:

I haven't had time to tally things yet. Work has been murder and I've had no free time for the last couple days. By the end of the week I'll pay somebody.

I'll try to have the results tallied soon. It has been a nightmare week at work & I'll be out of town this weekend.

Actually I think WAB won and I'm simply not going to pay him.

Draft results are in. It was a wasteland, thanks to the Browns.

First prize is $50 to the Bears team store. Second prize? A set of steak knives. Third prize is you're fired.

Image

Think I'm fucking with you? I'm not fucking with you.

The point was to pick the right draft picks, and you guys couldn't pick fuckall right. I don't want to hear excuses, I don't -

Image

The leads are weak? YOU'RE weak, pal. With the mock draft resources I had available I could have called half this draft with the utmost accuracy.

You know what it takes to win a draft contest?

Image

It takes brass balls to win a draft contest. Go and do likewise, gents.

-------

SCORES:
  • WAB - 4
  • MMMC35 - 3
  • BORIS13C - 2
  • MIDDLEGUARD - 2
  • MIKEFIVE - 2
  • ROCKBEAR99 - 2
  • SC BEAR - 2
  • UOK - 2
  • ATKINS&REBEL - 1
  • THUNDERSPIRIT - 1
  • Z BEAR - 1
  • MALK - 0
  • BEARDOWNBILLY - 0
So WAB, as a mod, you may accept the winnings or defer your prize to mmmc_35's 2nd place.

Being able to hold this over everyone's head is enough for me. I defer my monetary prize.

Damn, I'll review.

If there's anyone else who feels like something was botched in the scoring, let me know.

If Middleguard did indeed get 3 as well, I'll split the prize between you two.

Seems fair to me. UOK had listed ties in alpha order, but I think timestamp of final edit gives priority to mmmc_35.

As for a prize, perhaps this should work like lotto where the prize keeps increasing until somebody actually gets 6 or 7 right (depending on whether we want the prize to build to millions or billions). Or perhaps, just until somebody beats wab.

I was thinking about upping the stakes. I like that idea. Next year maybe do a Bears jersey or larger prize.

It's a helluva contest to get 3 right out of 32 and win something meaningful. And I've got nothing to say with only getting 2. :lol:

So since the scores were abysmal this year (Thanks, Cleveland) I'm going to double down for the 2019 draft prize. Thinking of doing a package.
