Welcome to AI Fantasy League. The concept here is much like Fantasy Sports but it's all about American Idol instead.

League play will be $6 ($5 for the pot, $1 for paypal fees). If you want to play more than one "team" that's fine. In other words, if you want to play twice, with two different rosters, that's fine. In this case, you could pay $5 for additional teams as the first $1 will go to paypal.  Paypal payments should go to henleym1@gmail.com. All entries will need to be in by 6pm CT on 3/17 to count. Payments will need to be in by 4/1.

ETA I changed my paypal email addy. It's now henleym75@gmail.com

Place the final 11 Idols in the order that you think they will finish. For example:

 

1st 

 Adam Lambert

2nd 

 Danny Gokey

3rd 

 Allison Iraheta

4th 

 Megan Joy

5th 

 Alexis Grace

6th 

 Lil Rounds

7th 

 Kris Allen

8th 

 Scott MacIntyre

9th 

 Michael Sarver

10th 

 Anoop Desai

 

 

Points will be awarded in the following fashion:


Top 10 (Week 1): You will receive 2 points for each correctly selected contestant in this round that makes it through to the next week.
Max points: 20

Top 9 (Week 2): 4 points for each correct selection

Max points: 36

Top 8 (Week 3): 5 points for each correct selection

Max points:40

Top 7 (Week 4): 6 points for each correct selection

Max points: 42

Top 6 (Week 5): 8 points for each correct selection

Max points: 56

Top 5 (Week 6): 12 points points for each correct selection

Max points: 60 points.

Top 4 (Week 7): 15 points for each correct selection

Max points: 64 points.

Top 3 (Week 8): 22 points for each correct selection

Max points: 66

Top 2 (Week 6): 35 points for each correct selection

Max points: 70

Finale (Week 10): You will receive 120 points if you chose the American Idol.

I frickin knew it bonus points

Every week you will also choose the contestant who you believe will be eliminated. If you are correct, you will receive an additional 10 points. Should the judges excercize their veto right, points will still be awarded for those who chose correctly. On the next week, you will be asked to choose two contestants. If you guess one correctly, you will receive the standard 10 points. If you choose both contestants correctly, you will receive 50 points!




Prize Distribution:


The more people to join, the bigger the pot!

1st place takes home 75% of the pot!

2nd Place takes home 25% of the pot!

explain playing teams to me.

OK, It made sense in my head. lol. Basically, you choose your picks as listed above. Let's say though, you want to play the odds as you think that maybe Allison will win but then again it could be Adam. So your first "team" might show Allison as the winner. Your second, though, might list Adam. Does that make sense?

So a team is not a team, it's just one person's choices. And if I enter 3 times, with three different lists, then I have 3 teams?

And who keeps track of the scoring?

and when does each team pick the bonus and how?

Exactly! I may need to ammend the rules to be more clear. Sorry.

Either I or parkavepirate will be keeping a spreadsheet with scores which will be published the day after each elimination.

Each Wednesday morning, I'll put up a poll (with results viewable only to myself and Jen) that will stay open until 30 minutes before the live show. Anyone who answers correctly will receive the bonus points.

ok so is this actually happening, or are you still gaging interest?

It's on in full effect. I guess even if there are just 5 or 6 of us it'll still be fun and someone will get enough for a lunch ;)

If you have a paypal account, just sign in and then go to "send money." Once there, please use the email address henleym1@gmail.com and select "services/other"

oh, and I will be making a post promptly for "team" selections so that if you have your team picked out, you can update it there.

what if people choose the same teams? then the bonus point will help, I suppose.

i will paypal you later today. i have to wait until my husband drains the money out of the account so the money will transfer from my bank account. xD


Exactly. Hopefully, it won't come down to a tie in the end. That would make it interesting to say the least.

And I am in no hurry. It's allll good.

Don't suppose you might pimp or allow me to over in adamlamberai8. hmmmm?

i think it's fine, but i should be a good mod and check with the other co-mods first. just hang on to your horses!

nikki still hasn't gotten back to me, but she is so chill that i highly doubt she would care.

GO PIMP.

edit: nikki said it's fine too. WOOT. wanna affiliate too??

YAY!!! Will pimp today! And yes, Affiliating would be awesome!!!!

OK, just pimped. And uhm sorry, I got so excited that I forgot to tag :/

i tagged it, just fix the community name link so people can find it!

I think I'm in. I am still trying to make sure I know what I'm doing though. rofl.

*snortgiggle* You and me both. If you have any questions, let me know :)

do you want us to name our teams?

This could get fun! lol, I say yes!

I think I want to do this.

So when I rank them do I do it 1-11 with first being who I think will win and last being who I think will be voted off this week? just to clarify.

Just curious, did this ever take off? I know the one I've been doing in the AI community has done well, and I'm contemplating doing a bigger version of it next year.

We've been having a great time! Not a lot of us, but it's been fun.

Are y'all FantasyAmericanIdol.com? Or another web site?

No, we are only on eljay in this comm

Are you picking this up again for this season, out of curiosity?

I was talking with the lovely park_ave_pirate abt that the other day. I believe that we are going to.

oh ok, hadn't heard anything and we were updating our affiliates at adamlambertetc to eliminate dead communities... i left this one on there for a while longer waiting to hear back, and when I hadn't I removed the link. definintely let me know if you are starting up again, and I'll replace the affiliates link. :)

K. Thanks a bunch. i suck at the eljay thing this year, so ya...
