1st Annual TCF Player Misconduct Pool

Unread postby swerb » Sat Jan 12, 2013 5:29 pm

Kind of a 2013 quasi death/arrest pool.

$25 per player, winner take all. I'll throw in a $50 gift card to the place of your choice to sweeten the pot and knock people off the fence. I can see this thing growing each year.

We'll draft 10 current or former athletes each (American sports leagues). If retired, they must have had at least a five year professional career. No min age, college athletes OK. Max age of retired athletes is 50 years old as of Feb 1. Must be 50 or younger on Feb 1, 2013.

Point system. Most total points from their team of 10 when the ball drops on Dec 31, 2013 wins. We'll try to draft the last week of Jan and start it Feb 1. Let me know if you're in.

Death - 100 points

Various arrests (arrests not convictions) point chart, points accumulative if more than one apply. Resisting arrest charge is an extra 20 points on top of any of these.

Murder, attempted murder, manslaughter - 80 points
Sexual assault or any other sex crimes - 60 points
Drug smuggling or trafficking - 60 points
Invoulantary manslaughter - 50 points
Burglary, kidnapping, robbery - 50 points
Forgery or financial crimes - 40 points
Assault, battery, domestic assault - 40 points
Drug possession/use - 30 points
DUI's - 30 points
Reckless driving, driving crimes - 30 points
Weapon possession - 30 points
Any other arrests - 20 points


Grab bag ...

Steroid/PED suspension levied - 50 points
Public admissions to extra marital affairs - 40 points per confirmed mistress
Legal name changes - 30 points
Filing bankruptcy - 30 points
Apologies for tweets - 20 points a pop
Pictures posted to web showing them half naked, doing drugs (Phelps), or noticably drunk (Roethlisberger level or worse) - 20 points a pop

No minimum age for college athletes.

Also, for simplicity sake, let's keep it to the big three sports: football, basketball, baseball.

I'm in. And if there's anything subjective about the point system at all or what constitutes points or indiscretions, you'll probably want a 3-person panel to make the call?

You're really keeping the lid on scoring by not including the EPL players ;-) ;) :wink:

Yeah, there could definitely be some gray area. We'll figure out some kind of panel to resolve complicated arrests.

And opening it up to athletes all around the world would be too complicated.

In.

Lotta turns this thing could take. Do you fill your roster exclusively with criminals...or do you take your shot with an Earl Campbell type, (And I know Earl is outside the current criteria) a real good guy, a law abiding citizen - that just happen to get the life taken out of him from the game. Being dead gets you a hundy.

Anyone know how far back the NFL concussion reports go?

Lastly, the draft is going to be great. Cause you know there will be far more times then a regular draft that a gem is going to be uncovered. "F@%^*, I shoulda thought of that idiot!!"

Hmmm....

If one of the contestants in this dies can we donate the prize pool and the gift card to his family? I'll feel better about motherscratcher's death if we do it that way.

I propose one instance, and one instance only in allowing a roster change.

With the holy grail being death, and worth 100 big points....say you've been both wise enough, and lucky enough to select a guy who careens his car off a cliff on March first and falls to his death. That's 100 points, (plus possible alcohol related bonuses) however, that player can no longer score, with the exception of possible post humous paternity action. Shouldnt be penalized in any way for hitting a home run like this.

In any event, succinctly - gotta be able to replace the dead guy.

Agreed. If you are lucky enough to have someone die, you can replace him.

For simplicity sake, we'll just have people woll with their same 10 person teams all year.


I propose one instance, and one instance only in allowing a roster change.

With the holy grail being death, and worth 100 big points....say you've been both wise enough, and lucky enough to select a guy who careens his car off a cliff on March first and falls to his death. That's 100 points, (plus possible alcohol related bonuses) however, that player can no longer score, with the exception of possible post humous paternity action. Shouldnt be penalized in any way for hitting a home run like this.

In any event, succinctly - gotta be able to replace the dead guy.

Agreed. If you are lucky enough to have someone die, you can replace him.

They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

I think like 150-200 points wins this thing, making a death HUGE. One death puts you right there at the end with a shot for sure.

Any chance of tweaking the points system and awarding a bonus for death based upon the 100 yr old mark. IOW your bonus pts are the difference of the age at death from 100.

So mo can follow along, if a 30yr old dies you get 170 pts.

I'm hoping three people IN the draft die.

And yeah, you're on that list.

Ryan Leaf just altered my draft. He gets out of the rehab place and he's money. But not with an 8 month prison sentence replacing it.

Man, Javon Belcher woulda carried someone to some cash on the back of one Saturday morning.

Too bad.

Would it be wrong of us to include coming out of the closet as category, not that there is anything wrong with that?

I mean considering what this thing is at its core?, not that there's anything wrong with that either.

You chose a sports message board to come out of the closet? There IS something wrong with that.

I always thought FUDU would do it in an interview with Oprah.
