Here we go.Edited By: Hughes4 Jul 13th, 2012 at 08:32 AM
OT SuperContest for the 2012-2013 NFL season.
Some details can be found here. Interest Thread
We'll be mirroring the LV-Hilton supercontest in which you pick 5 teams each week Against the Spread.
Your record accumulates throughout the year and the top scorers are paid.
Our Buy-in is $100
Rules and Ambiguities:
Pushes count for 0.5
Picks will be made via email.
The spreads will be posted as they are for the LVHilton contest on that Tuesday most likely.
Once you've submitted your picks, they may be changed provided that the deadline has not passed.
Weekly picks must be submitted by 8:00 PM ET on Saturday
If there is a Thursday game, you can pick that game if you submit all of your picks by 1 PM ET on Thursday.
There are no exceptions to the deadlines. If you're late, you'll get a zero that week.
For transparency, picks will be made public before games begin.
League members needn't be OT members.
The contest runs throughout the 17-week NFL regular season. Every week counts.
Tiebreakers are explained here:
20. Tie-breaking rules:
Tie-breaking rules will be applied to determine first place only. Entries tying for second through twentieth place, will equally split aggregate prize money from the respective place. If ties exist after the Pro Football regular season for first place, the champion will be determined based on the entry that accumulated the most contest points during the final three weeks of the regular season. If total points accumulated during the final three weeks is equal most points accumulated during the fourth to the final week will determine the winner, and so on weekly (in reverse order), until the tie is broken.
In the unlikely occurrence of a tie after the tie-breakers, co-champions will be declared and the aggregate prize money will be split equally.
Collections and Payouts will be made through LeagueSafe

Any remaining ambiguities can be resolved by deferring to the actual LV-Hilton contest rules which can be found here:
Anything further will be resolved by the brain trust of myself, Niceguy, marinersheep, Leet8s, etc.
There is a long way to go, but it is never too early to reserve your spot and make your payment.
In, but pushes count for .5 in the real thing
I guess it's time to get the old paypal account up and running once and for all.
I really think only like 5 people should get paid though...
Deadline for signup? In most likely
Early in September~
Ill be in
Just thought, is league safe a us only thing?
can we do one for college lacrosse??? thats where i'm a good handicapper.
2 adjustments to rules I would add,
1) Move deadline to 1:00 PM EST Saturdays. That way when saturday games start we don't have to make an announcement "get them in early" and don't have to hear "but but but the deadline said 8!" from the anglers.
2) Mandatory posting of the ROT numbers, make shit so much easier in an excel sheet.
I will be in as long as I can pay at the start of August
Dead money lurkers allowed?
Non-American Members are able to use LeagueSafe, however LeagueSafe’s full feature set may not be available to Members outside of America. International Members should be aware that the site is primarily intended for use by Americans, and operates under the assumption that Members reside in America. International users may get a different experience than American Members.
Notable restrictions include the following. Because every country uses a different e-check technology, payments and withdrawals cannot be performed from banks outside of the United States. Visa will not ship preloaded cards outside of the US. International Members can make payments by credit card, and withdrawals by paper check only.
From time to time, LeagueSafe may bill itself as a free site. In those instances, Americans have payment and withdrawals options at no cost. Those options are not available for international users, who will need to pay small processing fees associated with credit card deposits and paper check withdrawals.
Lots of Ins. Only 2 PMs.
You all can join the league without paying right away, FYI.
And if anyone has a big problem with leaguesafe and wants to be in, they could ship to someone on paypal who can post for them in the league.
Can you see people's names in the league? My anonymity is essential.
