As promised, I'd like to put up a poll and see where everyone stands on how to score the prediction contest. I'm going to do three simple options. Please vote with how you honestly feel the scoring should be.
1. Leave things as they have been: By doing this, we will leave the scoring as it has been for almost all of it's life. Of course, this favors those who pick against the Reds because only a handful do so.
2. Favor a Reds win: In this scenario, those who pick the Reds to win are given a bit more incentive to do so. If the Reds win and you pick the correct score, you get 3 points. If you pick the Reds and are closest, you get 2 points. If you pick the other team and get the correct score, you get 2 points. If you pick the other team and come closest, you get 1 point.
3. Just pick the score: Here, you only pick the score. A correct score gains you 2 points. If no correct score is guessed, the closest person gets 1 point.
