Some great handicapping by Blazer and AA.
I have been thinking about this though and this 'week long' schmoz is only worth one point.
I was thinking 'next year' (or let's say 'hockey season') - if someone wins by picking winners 5 straight nights that should be worth 5 points. And if you win one round where everyone is cooked after 2 nights, then that would be worth 2 points.
Etc. Something like this late in the season should be meaningful. Thoughts?

What is the longest matchup that has occurred since this was started?  Didn't really participate last season I don't think but it seems to me while checking that a couple must have gone longer.  If picking winners 5 nights in a row isn't a common occurrence then maybe it should be rewarded in some way.


Some thoughts:


If a matchup ends up being a one and done where there is only one winner on day one that should probably be 2 points.


Bonus points could be added at the end of the season for the longest streak of wins within  a matchup, like this one going 9 days.  If this was the longest for the season then the bonus points could be the number of correct picks it took to win.


There could be points awarded for back to back wins in matchups as well.  If someone wins twice in a row then the 2nd win is worth 2 points and if someone were to win 3 matchups in a row(don't know if it has ever happened) win number 3 could be worth 3 points, etc.

Maybe a bonus point if you win a round with the team that has the worst record in baseball that day.

Some stuff like that.

Beej- that's interesting.  Would it be too much trouble to keep track of everyone's wins with a running point total for the season?  The winner of each knockout round would get a DVD, but everyone who participated in the round would earn points based on each correct pick they made.  8 picks correct = 8 pts, if you only won the first night and then lost = one pick.  Keep season tally and winner of the season gets five discs.  


Of course it is entirely possible the season winner may not be the leader with the most knockout wins.

I did that last year and it wasn't easy. You really need to stay on top of it every day to make it work. I didn't have time to keep up off the start this year and it only took a few rounds for it to seem like too much effort...for me, anyway.

If someone is around the board every day next season it can be done, but it does take time and if you get behind it gets tough.

Just food for thought.
