The BigFooty.com 2016 AFL National Draft Competition You could win $2,000.00 cash for picking the first round of the National Draft. Or, just get the closest and win two year's Premium Platinum Membership. With a Premium Platinum membership you see no external banner ads in the forum, get a bigger avatar, 1GB of Media Gallery storage space and more. The rules are simple and it is an easy two-step process to enter. Winning the money: that’s the hard part. How To Enter Post the players you think will be picked in the first round of the AFL National Draft on 25th November in the order you think they will be picked. Then send your name, address and phone number to email@example.com (this information will be kept private, only viewed if there is a winner, and deleted once the comp is over). If you pick the 18 players, in correct order, you’ll win $2,000 cash (or a share if there are multiple winners). Need more help? We’ll give you one Wild Card. Just put the words “Wild Card” in one position in your list and it counts as correct, no matter who is picked at that spot. You can elect not to use the Wild Card. Only entries should be posted in this thread, please. All other discussion, questions and notifications about the comp go in this thread: https://www.bigfooty.com/forum/threads/2016-draft-picking-comp-discussion-and-questions.1152714/ Entries close 11:59PM AEDT on the 24th November.

If there are no winners these emails will be deleted without even being looked at. The prize will be sent to the supplied address, cheques made out to the supplied name only. -- The Rules and Terms Only entries posted in this official forum thread are accepted. The first post of the official thread gives you the format in which you must post your entry. You must complete both steps in the entry process by 11:59PM AEDT on Thursday, 24th November, 2016. You may edit your entry post. Entries which are posted or edited after the deadline, according to the forum and email time stamp, are immediately invalidated. A copy of this whole thread will be taken at midnight on 24th November - that copy will be used as the official set of entries. One entry per person, only one entry per household. Multiple entries by the same person using aliases or from the same household will invalidate ALL entries by that person or household. "Aliases" are determined by the judges and we reserve the right to identify these at any time, including retrospectively after the winner/s is/are announced. The cash prize for a completely correct set of tips will be sent via cheque to the person named in the entry email, to the address in the entry email, some time before Christmas, or when Chief has a chance to clean out the loose change from his car. Attempts to circumvent the rules or spirit of the competition render that entrant's entry (or entries) invalid. A correct tip is the correct player at the correct pick number. Grand Prize: All tips correct, $2000 - split amongst all winners should there be multiple winners. Best Tipper: Most tips correct, two years Premium Platinum membership. Tie breaker! For the Best Tipper prize, in the event of a tie, we count back down the list of picks. If only one person in the tie tips the first pick correctly, they get the prize. If both players tip the first pick correctly (or both get it wrong) we go to pick two and apply the same test. And so on up to pick 20. This means correct tips for earlier picks are more valuable than later tips. If this tie-breaking method fails to deliver a winner we apply a points system to the tied entries: 5 points for each correct tip (correct player and club in correct position) 1 point for each player correctly nominated, but in the wrong position. Highest score wins. After that, each drawn entry gets a year's Platinum Membership. The judges reserve the right to edit existing rules or introduce further rules to protect the integrity and good intentions of the competition, fix errors and so on. The judges will be Chief, dlanod, Chris25, TheBrownDog and Jab. Their decisions in this competition are final. No discussion will be entered into. EDIT: 22/11 12:30 - Found the 2015 thread and have updated the Terms.
