* NEW * murf's 6 Nations Egg Chasing Predictions Knockout Cup 2019 * NEW *

Post by murf » 24 Jan 2019, 17:24

Welcome to only the TWELFTH, yes there has only been eleven before, annual Egg Chasing Predictions Knockout Cup run by me here on FISO. Wahoo etc.

The role of champions reads
2008: thelip
2009: Rookster
2010: amcal59
2011: Big Bird
2012: Big Bird (again!)
2013: Zoolander
2014: Rookster (beating Big Bird in final)
2015: Minitoff (beating Alchemist in final)
2016: Spinynorman (beating yorkshiredragon in final)
2017: Spencer 4 (beating robot in final)
2018: Moist von Lipwig (beating Arabian Knight in final)

We all know that Egg Chasing remains incredibly dull and is just a way of posh kids using up a bit of pent up energy so they don't get too carried away when it comes to what they see as the main event afterwards - the communal showering.

Anyways, some posh kid at a posh school picked up a football years ago, turned it into an egg and invented a sport called Rugby. For some unknown reason he wasn't rightly beaten up by sane football loving kids but spawned a sport now played at international level across the world, well in and around the UK and a few places down under. All weird I know but a good excuse for another predictions comp .......

HOW THE CUP WORKS

There will be 5 weekends of matches, starting on FRIDAY 1ST Feb, and the cup will have 5 rounds

Wk 1, Fri 1 / Sat 2 Feb - Last 32
Wk 2, 9/10 Feb - Last 16
Week off - wimps
Wk 3, 23/24 Feb - Last 8
Another week off - pathetic
Wk 4, 9/10 Mar - Semis
Wk 5, 16 March - Final

Each week will be straightforward knockout (if we get 32 entrants).

I am therefore limiting it to the first 32 entrants on a first pick (legally) first served basis - , strictly no altar egos or multi-entering etc etc. No reserving a space - you have to pick - edits allowed til first kick off.

If we get to 32 I will close the drawbridge and do a draw. If we do not get to 32 then the 16 highest scores go through round 1 (We have had 32 and 25 in the last 2 years so don't hang around). If less than 16 (hope not!) then there will be some byes to round 3.

HOW TO PICK
For each of the 3 games listed just state which team you think will win and by how many points (you must nominate your winner and cannot select the draw). YOU MUST FOLLOW THE TEMPLATE OR RISK DISQUALIFICATION

HOW THE SCORING WORKS
Same as last year (and the year before and the year before and....)
For each game you start with 50 points and lose 1 for each point you are out. There will be 10 bonus points available if you get it spot on so a maximum score of 180 across the 3 games is possible. If your team only draws you lose an additional 5 points. If your team loses you lose an additional 10 points.

Example - You pick England to win by 22 points.

Eng win by 22: Spot on: 50 + 10 bonus = 60
Eng win by 24: Out by 2: 50 - 2 = 48
Eng win by 1: Out by 21: 50 - 21 = 29
Eng draw: Out by 22 and 5 pts off for draw: 50 - 22 - 5 = 23
Eng lose by 6: Out by 28 (22 + 6) and 10 points off for defeat: 50 - 28 - 10 = 12
Eng lose by 20: Out by 42 (22 + 20) and 10 poinst off for defeat: 50 - 42 - 10 = -2

Tie-break: In the event of a tie, matches will be decided as followed: closest to England result, closest to Welsh result, closest to Scottish result, closest to Ireland result, first to pick.

Rules:
1. My word is law
2. Edits allowed until first kick off then strictly no edits allowed.
3. Late entries allowed until subsequent kick offs.

HOW TO ENTER
Just enter your picks on the thread (If you aren't ready just put any results down - you can always think about it later and edit)

Half full or half empty?

From either perspective we have 16 entries in and 16 spaces left.

One thing is guaranteed and that is that the metaphorical glass that will be Round 2 is 100% full.

Just need a few more in so we get some knockouts...

A quick bump to give something to do for those awaiting team news or pondering over a midweek tinker.

Action starts on FRIDAY night so get in now before you forget.

I think that is 20 now. 12 spaces to go and it kicks off TONIGHT!

(small note - if editting your picks please do an edit to the original post (rather than a new post) as that makes it easier for me to keep track and count - I've run out of fingers and toes as it is! All edits are timestamped which is good, except those by mods who can write the time/date of edit on - and get it right Spiny - the 28th Feb hasn't happened yet so I could disqualify you for a late edit :lol: )

So, just under 40 minutes to go and we have 21 entries so there will be no draw and just the top 16 scores get through. Still time to get your picks in folks!

Late entries will be allowed but will be playing catch up starting on 0 (unless by some miracle freak result there are not 16 positive scores at that stage when they will start with the average score from thise outside the top 16).
