I would have counted it...

Soooo... maybe I'll defend my 'title' this year.

I did make a few predictions last year but clearly not enough and I do admit that that was probably the deciding factor on why I kic.. i mean defeated my fellow predictatators - yes I made that word up.

I think we should now have a minimum number of choices we have to choose but I don't know how we could work that out because there can be some wild choices out there and we shouldn't have to force anyone to choose just for the heck of it. Maybe we should have winners for groups of people who chose less then 5, 10, 15 possibilities. That would level the playing field.

Should be a good one..although I know I will be rushing to catch up as I will be busy working during the event.

I'm going to have just 10 choices in each bracket this year. A smaller pool of choices. The risk, as always, is up to the player. ^__^

You need me to redo the spreadsheet from before? Should be easy enough once the choices go up.
