Idea !

What about starting a pool for this years MotoGP. Every body pitches in 10 bucks and then picks a rider and where they think he will finish at the end of the season.

You can enter as many times as you want.

If 2 people have the same rider finishing in the same position they share the winnings.

Who's up????

Cheers

well so much for

good ideas eh...NOBODY

I mean ..i come up with an idea that adds a bit o spice to the GP events this year and eventually a massive piss up at the last round of the season and all this for a mere 10 bucks....you stingey cants.
I do understand that it's 2 weeks pocket money for Silva and Legend but come on guys i'll lend it too you and you pay me back a dollar a month.

I've decided to put 50 bucks in on my own and pick 5 riders.
this has the following going for it.
a/ afore mentioned piss up at the end of the season.
b/ I can cheat and nobody will know.
c/ I get all the free pies at Molly's ..Oh hang on ...i might share these.... ( just how rubbery can a pie be)
d/ I dont have to listen to that cant Legend while i'm on my piss up.
e/ I can make a complete twat of me self and you'll all miss out.

Your all deep pocketed, useless tossers.
Riders for "women in sensible shoes" forum thought it was a great idea.

Its not often you have one

so sorry I missed your brilliant idea

How about one for Superbikes as well ?

Im in for either.

How does it work ? Let me guess, I give you 50 bucks and never see it again ?

right then

Heres what i think will work.

You get to pick a rider per 10 bucks.
I take down the rider and the position you reckon he'll finish in at the end of the season.
I put all entrants and their chosen rider on the web.

If your rider finishes where you said he would then you get all.
If somebody else gets it right as well then it's shared.

For instance if you take Andy Pitt to be 12th at the end of the season and he is but somebody has got barros to win and he does then you both share the pot.

Another option would be to put all riders in a hat and we each pick one and name where he will finish this year.

To be decided on Wednsday ( if we meet up)

I also still need full committee line up for the web site!!

Cheers
PS Does anybody elses head still hurt !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah I'm in.... and will have

Like I've always said, your an 'ideas man' Phil.... good work

I'll even donate an Aussie 10'er which is like $10.28 sing (so I'm losing money on this already.... ) and will take Makoto Tamada to finish a close 18th

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

Go Marlboro!!!

Talk about a joke gone horribly wrong,,,,,, can I change mine to Troy Bayliss coming 3rd and then double or nothing on him winning the tile in 2004.
