BIG BALLS V - IN PLAY

Post by CBN »

Big Balls Returns

Returning for the fifth season, will Big Balls V in 21/22 be bigger and better than ever before?

This is a £200 entry mini-league in the Sun Dream Team game. One team per entrant, no restrictions on FISO joining date or posting history, provided there is no suspicion anyone has set up a new FISO account to have multiple teams.

Prize pool will, as ever, be top-heavy, reflecting the heritage of this event.

This is a standard mini-league. You pay your money to me and you enter one team in a mini-league I will set up on the Sun website. I've held thousands on here over the years so am as trusted as they come. Nonetheless, the standard FISO mini-league disclaimer applies.

Hall of Fame

17/18 - CBN
18/19 - Yorkshire Exile
19/20 - Dot
20/21 - CBN

Dodgy Ron's Runners and Riders for Big Balls V

9/4 CBN - Has to go in as favourite given his pedigree but there to be shot at. Jolly.
4/1 robot - A fantasy football allrounder to be feared whenever the money is down. Solid.
6/1 Dot - The big fish (in every sense) will be motivated to recapture the crown. Chap.
10/1 Yorkshire Exile - The go big or go home approach will pay off again at some point but will it be this year? Tightarse.
12/1 The Bear - Veteran fantasy football manager but can former glories be recaptured competing with the newer generation. Oldtimer.
14/1 leethomas - Always there and thereabouts without winning it. Bridesmaid.
16/1 drdes - Seasoned big baller that showed up well for a long way last season. Prospects.
16/1 seysey - A bit of an unknown quantity slipping under the radar. Outsider.
20/1 Backlash’s friend Rob - Little is known about this Big Balls virgin but Dot has confirmed he's a real person! Ringer.
20/1 Zidane - Some solid performances in the book in recent seasons make a Big Balls tilt very possible. Chances.
25/1 superiorpinkham - A lot of money to put on the line for the adopted Raheem-loving Scotsman so has to be confident. Sweaty.
25/1 Striker - Confidence must be shaky after last season's capitulation from a winning position. Friendless.
100/1 Backlash - Suspicions that his long list of housework has got in the way of picking his team properly. Ignored.

A very tight field this year.

Expecting entries to ramp up but in the unlikely event we get 10 or less entrants then it'll be winner takes all, reverting to Big Balls roots.

Surely you'll get a lot more entries in the final couple of days. I'll be entering then provided it seems likely that there will be a fair sized field.

Everyone waiting for each other is somewhat chicken and egg!

Hopefully some more people will be happy entering sooner than later 👍

Yeah looking a bit disappointing this season but hopefully a few of the usual suspects turn up.

Still it’ll be competitive nonetheless.

The Bear throws his hat in the ring. Who wants to be tenth and guarantee a £2k first prize?

Some admin:
- Confirming I’ll be doing the odds Friday morning.
- I’ve asked Frank to host the league on his site.
- Entries will close Friday afternoon latest.
