----------------------------------
RULES AND SCORING
----------------------------------
The Basic Scoring System will work as Follows:

8 points for correctly picking the winner
-5 points for picking the loser
(***Draws can be picked. Correct picks = +35, incorrect = -5)

If you properly pick DEC or KO/TKO you got an extra 2 points. (Bringing you to 10)

If you properly specify the type of decision (with SD, UD, MD, or TD) you got an extra 2.(Bringing you to 12--the maximum point total for picking a proper decision).

If you got the right round on a KO/TKO you got an extra 5 points (meaning 15 was the maximum you can get for picking the round of stoppage--there was no distinction between KO or TKO).

If anyone has any questions about the scoring system, feel free to ask. Oh, and also note, at random points throughout the year, I reserve the right to appoint certain fights as MEGA BOUTS. In such instances, the aforementioned point totals are doubled, across the board.



Additional Rules
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

NEW RULES THAT WILL GO IN EFFECT FOR 2012!!!

We have 2. The "Lone Wolf" rule, and it's cousin "The Lone Ranger".

These Bonus Points can only be earned under very specific circumstances.

================

"The Lone Wolf"

This happens when just ONE poster picks a certain fighter to win. So for example we have Maxwell vs. Johnson! Everyone who picks on the fight picks Maxwell, except for IntentionalButtr who picked Johnson.

IntentionalButt would then qualify for a x2 bonus for being the only person to pick Johnson. So whatever your normal point total is, double it for being the "Lone Wolf"

Again, this can only happen when ONE person picks against the grain. (Non-picks are simply omitted) and you can ensure that someone doesn't get that bonus if you change your pick before a fight.

If you receive the Lone Wolf Bonus, you do not qualify for the Lone Ranger.

Draws will NOT count towards this bonus.

====================

"The Lone Ranger"

This Bonus is worth +5 when you qualify.

This is similar to "The Lone Wolf" in some ways, but this one focuses on being the closest person to get a manner of victory, and has several forms to qualify.

1. If you are the only person to see the winner of a fight going to a decision. Say everyone who picks the winner to win by KO, and you are the only person to see it going to a decision. You get +5 for being the only one to pick that fighter by decision.

2. If everyone who picks the winner sees the fight going to a decision for the winner and you are the only one to pick a manner of decision (UD, SD, TD, MD) you qualify for the bonus. (This can land you +17 for being the only one to call the winner by UD, SD, MD, TD)

3. If you are the only one to see the winner of a fight winning inside the distance. Take Martinez-Williams 2 where just about everyone who picked Martinez picked him by decision. If you were the only one to pick him by KO when everyone else thought it would go to the cards, you get +5. So this can mean +15 instead of +10, or if you nail the KO round it could mean +20 instead of +15.

You can only win this bonus one time in a fight if conditions somehow overlap. So the maximum you get for qualifying in the above scenarios is a +5 bonus no matter what. (No doubling of this bonus in mega or ultra bouts!!!!)

=======================

NOTE: You can change your pick to **** other people out of that bonus if you think it's worth it.

So say, for instance that Jenna is the only one who picked Hartley to beat Goodson. Everyone else thinks Goodson is a shoe-in, so should Hartley win, you know Jenna will get "Lone Wolf" Double Points.

Let's say Brand doesn't want Jenna to qualify for that bonus. Before IB cuts off the fight time, Brand can say screw this! I'm changing my pick to Hartley just so she doesn't get those bonus points in the off chance she's right.

So I think this adds an interesting element for 2012 that won't play a huge impact on the results, but will reward people for being the only one to go against the grain AND being correct.

If anyone has any questions, please let me know.

Fitting that you are officially the first poster to join Rumsfeld's Challenge! A Challenge I hope persists for years to come or until I get a job with more responsibilities.

I'm a little dicey on that Bowe prediction. I think it's entirely possible this tomato can beats him.

Come on. Be a sport and make real picks. Don't worry if you get fewer right than me. In time, you will learn, despite my bogus reputation, I will be in the upper echelons in the rankings.

Yeah, I actually copy and pasted that one in there, and then decided, **** it! Four fights is enough for one week, and pending how many people actually participate, this might take awhile to tabulate. In any case, it's not an official contest in Rummy's Challenge.
