Degenerate Football Fans- The league, the NFLPA and myself have reached a settlement, and there will be the Confidence/Rank Em pool for the 2011/2012 season. A more detailed email will be forthcoming, but it will be comparable in format to past years (weekly winners, cumulative winners, etc.) As spots often go quickly, please let me know if you are interested. Also, if you know others that may be interested, please let me know. Thanks, and I hope you are all enjoying your summer. ________________________________________ From: [ME] Sent: Monday, July 25, 2011 12:43 PM To: ... Subject: Re: Have No Fear.... I'm interested. But I believe we should cap the potential winnings of new entrants for the first five years they are in the pool at 30% of the stated prizes, and divide any excess amongst those of us who have been in the pool the longest (and thus have contributed the most to the pool pots over the years). Just to be fair. And we should set some of that money taken from the new entrants aside for people who used to be, but are no longer, in the pool. To compensate them for their sacrifices and contributions to the success of the pool.
