I would also like to shout out CashBrewyn for coming up with the formula to calculate the wins in the spreadsheet, as well as R1zla for designing our kick ass championship belt that you see below. If you have any interest in joining contact myself or Wolfman.

It's going to take me a while to re-train my brain not to look for the old thread. 


Everything looks great, I just have to avoid all-in bets on Manny Pacquiao this year.

Ok so I think people seem to like this idea so for this season all the bonuses will be added into your total as you get them and then to start the new season everyone will start out with the same amount.

I'm going to revamp the bonuses a little bit because if we are giving them out when you get them a few we have on there won't really work. Will post them in a little bit.

Also since at the end of this season now the winner doesn't get a bonus added to his total for the next season I came up with another idea.

Whoever wins the season get's a mulligan for the next season, meaning at any time in that next season if they lose a bet they can use that mulligan one time to erase that loss.

I of course won't have a mulligan this year since we did have bonuses added on, but whoever wins this next one will.

Speak up if anyone doesn't like it, I just figured if we won't be adding to the start totals whoever wins should at least get something and a mulligan seemed like a good idea

yeah I was just leaving the old information all in there for the moment so if anyone had any issues with the end of the season I could still check it out. I will be removing all the old info at some point this week

If you scroll further down the spreadsheet you will see the new totals

@poir one on the down votes on the Mulligan idea is from me. Sorry, I'm on my phone and accidentally touched the down instead of up. I think it's a good idea, that champ should get a little advantage but not an overwhelming one
