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.

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.
