Fgotg 2013?

Now that the season is finally upon us, should we do another competition this year? I know we haven't been many players the last couple of seasons but E_Godard's done a fantastic job with the website and updating, let alone the fabulous prizes, but he has implied he doesn't have the time to do it anymore.

Anyone else interested in doing it again this year and how do we go about it?

I would be in as well, I'm visiting the board all the time anyway, just didn't post until recently.

But I guess to find someone for organizing the whole thing is even harder than finding some regular players.

Maybe someone can PM E_Godard and ask how he did it? Seems the old site is down and I have absolutely no idea how to run this.

A few years ago it was run just as a thread and people chipped in as they pleased with someone counting the points. I suppose we could run it that way but then maybe with some simplified rules?

We used to do it that way. However there was alot of room for error etc.
The best way to do it was from the Site. I have E goddard # around some where.
I will shoot him a text and ask how he had set it up for you guys. I am fairly certain once the site is up he did not have to do much.

I think I'm retiring from FGOTG after winning last year and tying for first the year before. Or at least just going to take this year off.

Why not? But until we know if we can get the site back up and running and someone to do the updating, what if we simplify the rules a little? Normally there's a fairly complex points system based on who made the first correct choice of goalscorer, special teams and darkhorses, but what if we just both pick a goalscorer and a darkhorse with an easier points system?

I suggest:

If you pick the right goalscorer 1 point
If you pick the right darkhorse goalscorer 3 points
1 extra point for correct teams (PP, ES, PK)

Following players ineligble for darkhorse:
Tavares, Moulson, Boyes, Grabner, Okposo, Streit


Any other suggestions???
