    2019 Multi Sport Competition.

    Edit 20/01/19. Everyones initial selection as received on 10/01/19.



    Last edited by ArmaniJeans; 20-01-19, 16:31. Reason: Initial selections

    #2
    Rules and stuff.
    All initial selection to be made by 6pm on Thursday 10th January. (Handball starts that evening).
    PM your selections to me
    1. PSG
    2. Burnley
    3 Ghana etc
    Please be clear on names and if possible give first name & surname to avoid confusion.

    Changes throughout year.
    3 changes can be made to events, up to 5 days before the start date of that event.
    Changes must be made by 21:59 5 days beforehand, I'll update exact deadlines for changes as we go along.
    Changes must be made on this thread, no editing or deleting changes once posted.
    Post something like 'Change Hurling from Galway to Clare' to do a change.
    Obviously events which are marked STARTED no changes will be allowed.

    Official results on the End Date of each event will count, subsequent disqualifications don't count.
    Where an event has playoffs or a final following a league phase (e.g. Munster Hurling, Aussie Rules) then the results of the final are what matters.
    (Darts event is the exception to this rule as League Phase Only is specified).

    If any events end in a tie for first or for places then relevant points will be split.

    Any disagreements on events winners or points I'll ask 3 non-involved members of IPB to decide.

    Entry Fee & Prize money.
    Entry €40. I'll come back with payment details in next few days.

    If 7 or less entries, winner takes all.
    8+ entries then 80% for 1st and 20% for second.
    An unlikely 14+ entries then I'll make it 3 places.

      Note Darts Premier League.
      Please look at scoring system for this event, the idea here is to get second, not first.
      List of players should be released on Tuesday after the Worlds final.

      *************

      Some wiki links to help with research.
      A mix of links to the actual event, or previous renewals if maybe more relevant.

                    AJ, for darts World championships, which one are you referring to, the BDO or PDC? Apparently there are two world championships

                      The PDC one - Cross, Anderson, Wade etc.

                                      Answers sent. Suggestion for next time. Can you include the event number in the list as I got lost a few times.

                                        Numbers looking good with 7 so far - I've about 3 selections left to do myself so that'll make 8 with four days left to get more in so we should easily get double figures.

                                        Just to clarify that if anything happens to your selections in the next few days or you were taken by how good the Indy Colts looked last night you can pm me any changes you want to make until Thursday evening. So there's no penalty for being in early.

                                                    All sent, thats the most studying I did since my leaving cert, actually on second thoughts its far more that I did for my leaving!

                                                    Definitely spotted a couple of value bets that I will invest on outsde of this so definitely worthwhile.

                                                    Many thanks for running, orgainising etc.

Obviously there was a huge lot of Ctrl C Ctrl V in operation, I double checked every entry but a mistake or three may well have sneaked through. Far easier/fairer to fix it now than in December.

It's a core part of the game to get your selections correct by the cut-off date and give yourself a runner in each event. And in this case you have.
                                                                                      Now I did point out to a few people that the Pittsburg Steelers were already out of the NFL, that Brazil weren't going to win the Euro volleyball, that Kohli wasn't going to do much in the Ashes. Someone else gave me 41 selections and was offset by 1 on nearly every answer and I corrected it. They were palps though.

But points do carry into second phase which is tougher with only top 2 (of 6) in each group qualifying for the semi-finals.

                                                                                                France, Germany and Spain are all going to be in the same group in the second phase so at lease one of them will definitely be eliminated early.

Danes were brutal against Egypt last match but will get it done when it matters ... Swedes need to win by 5 not 4 otherwise a goal difference of zero puts them through as norways goal difference is minus 1 lose by 5 and they both have minus 1 dunno what happens then
