Ok, a couple of quick notes boys and girls…first off, most of you probably saw the discussion in last week’s thread about altering the way the mulligans work next year. I am rather happy with the way they work currently; with the number of people who have started participating, the mulligans stretch out the contest to about half of the EPL season which allows for two contests per year at this time. If the contest continues to grow and lasts longer than half of the season, I’d probably be in favor of changing the mulligans or doing away with them altogether. But, I’d like to hear everyone’s opinions either way before I make a final decision. Also, as you’ll see below, the matches next week are on Tuesday and Wednesday. Then there is a quick turnaround with another round of matches on Saturday and Sunday. Previously, I have skipped the midweek matches, but I chose to include them this time and will have the following weekends matches up as quickly after the Wednesday afternoon matches conclude as possible (provided that Glassman doesn’t get me absolutely crippled during the Arsenal v Liverpool match). So, just as a heads up, please keep an eye out for the quick turnaround going into the weekend following next week’s midweek matches.
The rules are as follows:
- Select a team from the matches listed for that week.
- Home wins and away draws provide immunity to the next round. Home losses, away losses and home draws result in elimination.
- Each team may only be used once during the competition with the exception of the mulligan round. Teams used in the mulligan round are still available to be used later in the contest.
-Failure to pick a winner by the deadline each week will result in either the loss of a mulligan or elimination from the contest. Still alive
