    Watcha rekon folks... would you like me to run one?

    Not sure how it would work, but we could do something; it could be a biggie. if you trust me, we could say, have a paypal entry fee of a few quid, and I would do a draw where you then get assigned a number which matches to a team...?

    If I collate a list of teams and numbers, then share that list with someone else on here so it is seen to be fair- maybe we could do it with a few people picking random numbers that then get them their team for the sweep...? thoughts...?

    Shout if you want me to do this for you cos we're running out of time.

    As ever I'd like to cover PayPal fees for tMP - only enough for the fees mind you - so if we were to charge £5 per entry, then the winner gets £4.50 or so of each entry? This would mean my PayPal costs would be covered and we could have a potential big winner...???

    OK, so long as we have enough people show their interest by the end of the weekend, then it's a go go!

    Hehe... the Whits are happening at the minute and the first game currently in progress. Let's give it until the end of the weekend and take it from there.

    I'd be up for this and so would Aardvark.

    Great idea John


    PS John - might be a good idea to 'sticky' this just in case in gets lost in the list by the end of the weekend. Please forgive 'granny sucking eggs' and all that.

    Count me in as well !!

    Can I ask are the teams allocated to each entry totally random , a bit like a raffle because otherwise everyone will want to go for Brazil , Argies , England etc.

    Cheers Mark

    That's what I suggested in the first post Mark and is the only way this would work. I shall add you and Craig to the list.

    PS: try to badger some of the other tMP World Cup area viewers so we get more to join it. Can only do this if we have enough people wanting to do it.

    OK, thanks Dyl and Kaz - I added your names to the first post.

    We still need more entrants if you want this to work.

    @Crawf: see if you can do some recruitment pls matey...

    PS: have a think as to how we run this. I feel it should be a big one wiuth something like £5 per entry. I'll make sure my Paypal fees are sorted, and so if we get 32 entries the winner could stand to win £170'ish...

    Thoughts....?

    That would be good if we can get enough people in quickly, but if that takes to long someone may end up getting a team that is practically knocked out already (and I know it'll be me :rolleyes: ).

    Maybe as an option if we have trouble getting people in we could just include the countries that get through to the next stage, we could still do the draw as soon as there are enough entrants (by having group & postion eg. I might draw have Winner group A etc..). That would need 16 entrants - so still quite a nice prize for the winner.

    Yep - we could still do the last 16 if we didn't get enough people in by the end of the weekend. No probs... I'll run with however many you want me to.
