Off Topic - Last Man (or women) Standing Community Idea

  • Gang, anyone interested in the following, would suggest paypal as the means of payment......


    1. You pick 1 team each week, that team HAS to win to progress to the following week.

    2. Once you have picked a team once, you can no longer pick that team. For example if you picked Man Utd in week 1, you can not pick that team again unless there is no winner and the pot is rolled over - see rule 9.

    3. Team selections must be from one of the 5 IPD leagues only - fixtures will include any domestic cup games.

    4. Game week runs from Friday to Monday (unless it becomes really hard to track).

    5. Team pick must be before the deadline of 20:00hrs GMT Thursday, if you fail to pick a team by the deadline, you will be given (by default) the most picked team, if you have already had that as a pick, you will be given the 2nd most pick and so on. If you have already picked all the teams that others have picked, then you will leave the competition.

    6. If your pick is part of a postponed match before the 20:00hr deadline on Thursday, then you will need to pick again, if you don't then the rules on rule 5 will be enforced.

    7. When faced with an International break, the competition will be put on hold until games re-start.

    8. When only 2 people are left in the competition, it will be played until only 1 person has a winning pick.

    9. If at the end of the game-week and in the event of everyone losing, then the total monies will be rolled over to a new pot. To be considered for this pot you must pay the entry fee again, any new players will be expected to match the entry fees already paid. For example, entry fee is £5 and the competition is onto its 3rd roll over, all new players will be asked to pay £15 to enter.

    Yay or Nay?

    If it's a yay, I will update and put into the off-topic area....we can tweak any rules and entry fee's etc if we decide to have a blast with it.

    Those that are showing an interest = 4 Entries (maybe.....if we agree how it all works lol)

    @MickTurbo @Ben_pz @Advinculas-Index @NewUser5676

  • Sounds like fun mate but having been a staunch dream team man, I'm this season managing a dream team and a fantasy team for the first time, add to that my portfolio and my head is battered with footy competitions.

    That's not to mention the ferret league where I'm in absolute free fall.

  • @MickTurbo only take you a minute to say 'PSG' or 'Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarwich' in a PM so no-one else knows your pick ;-)

  • Ah fuck it, go on then. I'm now off to youtube to figure out PayPal caveman emoji

  • Good man, who else is up for it :-)

  • Do this with my friends and its good fun. I’m in.

  • @Keegans-Bluff trying to find out how much of the fund is taken by Frontrunner - can't find it anywhere - you got any ideas?

    I have found another app that does the same thing too which doesn't take any admins costs, last winner took at pot of over £8k!!!!!!

  • @Milnerman not sure, I'm sure it will say on there somewhere - further details links at bottom of homepage.

  • @Keegans-Bluff chatted to them.

    15% they take.....also noticed there is already one that has been started and only 4 people left in - called @Buzzing & @Figuide Charity Comp.

    Not a bad slice of cash they make from it, doesn't seem a very busy site though - looks quite good and obviously all automated, but would rather that 15% be in someone's pocket though.

  • @Milnerman yeah that was where I heard of it, through FIG. 15% is a fair chunk - sounds like the other one you found mat be more competitive.

  • im in.......

  • Seems interesting im in

  • That's 4, i'd love to have a blast but obviously can't as I get to see all the picks.

    Shall we say its a fiver to enter? I have a paypal account, I will also set up a whatsapp or messanger group chat for it and will send those that sign up my personall address and phone number so you have details of who runs off with all your money (not that I would, but the nets full of scammers).

    If not a fiver, how much.....also its winner takes all and no % cut for myself, meaning 100% of the pot goes to one person.

  • Further to the above, I'd suggest if we are to give this a tickle we start with the matches on Friday the 13th of Sept, which would mean entry fee and first picks deadline being 20:00hrs GMT Thursday the 12th of Sept.

    What we think?

  • I'd be interested in playing for a fiver

  • Go on then, I'm in...

  • Right, so we don't clog this forum up - apart from the odd bump to get more people involved, I have created a facebook group - Lastman Standing - Bazza.

    Its a closed group, so you will have to apply to join, i'm assuming and hoping everyone has facebook, if not, private message me and I will screenshot what I have written there.

    If everyone who has expressed an interest joins then we will have a massive number of 6, £30 to the winner lol.

    So come on gang, a fiver in, 100% to a single winner.
