I already have one bet going with @****ard, but I'll take your monies too.  These will be the last bets I take for a while as I have to get a job delivering papers to make back the money I lost.

There's a four-person, $15 entry available right now. Greg's usually pretty easy to beat, as well.

Just curious but when you guys get out of beta testing are you planning on giving Finishers it's own site, or partnering it with Tapology? Probably both? This is obvious, but it would be cool to have a section of Tapology specifically for Finishers. For example when you click "FIGHTCENTER" it takes you to the upcoming events, etc. When you clicked "FINISHERS" you could have it show the list of upcoming events and the games that have been created. Including games for WSOF/Bellator/ONE/Any other MMA promotion where the results are easy to obtain. Could throw together some Tapology Awards for members who play Finishers like Win a 5 man game, win a 10 man game, etc. etc. A small video tutorial on how Finishers works might be helpful to a lot of the more casual fans as well. Basically the same type of video you guys made for Tapology. Sweet and to the point. Mobile Apps would be cool as well. I'm just spitballing a bunch of ideas, and I'm sure you guys have thought of them all and more. If by some miracle I'm able to think of something original I'll run it by you guys as well.

Mobile apps have always been a good idea.  Greg knows that.  I honestly think it should just be the picking and forum sides of the site. No need for rankings on the app. 

As for finishers.  I thino that would be a he'll of a lot easier to make an app for, considering the stage it's in now.

@CT: Greg and/or Jeremy are the ones to answer the specifics as to the relationship between Tapology and Finishers. 

But, the short answer is, just like the founders of Tapology, the two sites will be brothers. So, yes, it will be it's own site, AND it will be partnered in many ways. 

We'll have to see how it all shakes out.

Either way, 2015 will be a fun year.

So I just found out that I can't play Finishers for credits because I'm from Quebec...

Well, that basically just ruined the game for me.

Sorry @anik hopefully that changes soon.  I think DraftKings is dabbling with offering all their games in Quebec so maybe things will get clearer.

Tapology and Finishers are separate apps, they won't plug directly into each other.  But there will be a fair amount of cross-promotion.
