So folks we won our first game but now it's time for the real competition the Cartilage Free Captain Commentariat Prediction League (from now on known as the CFC CPL). We ended up with 57 members taking part so I decided to keep the division set up idea we had going in the original plan for the league so there are 10 divisions total, 7 with 6 members and 3 with 5 members. These divisions will last for the first 10 matches at which point we will split into three leagues, the Premier League(top 2 memembers of the division), the Championship (members 3 and 4) and League One (last place bitches). So after 10 weeks the leagues should look like this...
Premier League: 20 members
Championship: 20 members
League One: 17 members
As for scoring it works the same way as the writers prediction league, 1 point for a correct outcome (win, loss, draw) and a bonus point for the correct score. If a member predicts the correct goal scorers they will receive +1 for their goal differential for each scorer they correctly identify. With this in mind here are the current results...
|Tottenham's Hair Club for Men||2||0|
|Not Those Spurs||1||1|
|Day of the Triffics||0||0|
|Tottenham Makes Me Cry||1||1|
|Dr. Martin Van Nostrand||1||1|
|Head Chicken Keeper||1||0|
|Gylfi - Viking Lord of the North||1||1|
|Aslan the Melon||1||1|
|Benoit's Smart Car||1||1|
|Perpetual Dark Horse||1||0|
The divisions were split up by the order in which I put them in the spreadsheet, which was the order you all signed up. If people have a serious issue with this well too bad.
Now comes the decisions we still have to figure out, with these leagues we will have promotion and relegation. I don't know how often we want to do that but I figure either every 10 matches or 15 matches makes sense. I also don't know if we want to make the amount of teams promoted three as it is in real life or maybe make it larger (5 perhaps?) to enable some more movement. Any ideas people have feel free to post below this post is just for us to finalize the details of this league and talk shit over the results. I will be making a new post to collect next games predictions on Wednesday.
