Cool 2007 NRL Rugby League/AFL Competition

Initally I thought I would not have the time to run a competiton involving both the codes but I have come up with a competiton which is very straightforward for both the participants and myself to run.

I'll go into it in more detail later today but if you are interested feel free to express interest and commit in this thread so I can also structure the prizes.

Also to let you know, this is a joint competition but I have structured it such that people who are more familiar with one code but not the other will not be disadvantaged in any way.

How it will Work

The competition involves tipping 3 ATS winners over a round of Rugby League and AFL. Some specifics:
*Each round I will post all the lines for both the Rugby League and AFL for the round. I expect to have this up once the lines are released but looking at no later than midnight on Thursday night.
*You MUST send ALL 3 tips to me via PM by 7pm AEST on the Friday This is to ensure people do not get an unfair advantage by exploiting movements in lines during the weekend due to player injuries etc. You will graded on the lines i post, not the end lines set by the books.
*It is up to you to PM me 3 ATS winners for the round of RL/AFL - your selection can be split in anyway you choose e.g. 3 RL tips, 3 AFL tips, 2 RL tips and 1 AFL tip etc.
*Not only must you send me 3 tips, but you have to allocate a "unit" size between 1-3 to reflect your confidence on each tip. You MUST send me 3 tips for each round with the relevant unit stake, if you do not I will autmoitcally grade your tips as a loss for those tips not send in (i.e. if you don't send any tips you will be marked -6 units for the round)

e.g.

Western Bulldogs +24.5 v Sydney Swans (3) (AFL)
Canberra Raiders +10.5 v Sydney Roosters (2) (Rugby League)
West Coast Eagles -50.5 v Carlton (1) (AFL)

So essentially what you are saying above is that your strongest bet is the Bulldogs to cover against the Swans and your least confident (but still more confident than the other lines on offer) is the Eagles to cover against the Blues.

Lets assume the results are as follows:
Bulldogs +24.5 (3) - WIN
Raiders +10.5 (2)- LOSS
West Coast Eagles (1) -50.5 - WIN

After applying the standard price of $1.90 on each unit staked, your net result for the round is: (3) x $1.90 + (1) x $1.90 - (2) = +1.6 units

This will continue until the rest of the regular season for both codes at which point whoever as the greatest number of units is the winner.

*The competition will begin on 30th March which corresponds with the 1st round of the AFL (even though the NRL will have already begun) and end on 3rd September which corresponds with the final rounds of both the NRL and AFL seasons.

Other important things to note:
*Each person must "pass" on a round (i.e. not send in tips for that round). When you pass is entirely up to you, so obviously if you think a particular week is too hard to predict, that would be the time to pass.
*Each person also must allocate a "wildcard" round whereby your units staked is doubled for that particular round. So instead of staking 1,2 & 3 units you will be staking 2,4 and 6 units. Similarly to a pass round, when you decide to use your wildcard is entirely up to you, obviously would be used in a round where you a most confident with your selections.

Rules inserted and commitments updated.

If you have any questions post them in here

One question I do have for the AFL followers - does the AFL have a split round similar to prior seasons? I can't seem to find which weeks it covers if applicable as I need to ensure there will be at least 3 games played in each round

Thanks

I think I will make the w/e 22th June an enforced "bye" round for everyone given it wouldn't be fair for those tipping solely AFL games on that particular weekend
