|After a passionate 1st week in the BATTLE FORUM we have ironed out some kinks and made some adjustments to the rules. Here are the rules in the BATTLE FORUM
Posted: 6/2/2012 8:30:54 PM
Rule1- Combatants agree on terms of the outcome of the battle- IE money, prize, gift or whatever.
Rule 2- The ref acknowledges the battle and the combatants.
Rule3- The Battle begins with 3 picks being posted by both combatants on the thread.
Rule 4- Combatants battle for 7 consecutive days- If you don't post your picks they will be considered losses. Post your picks and the current line when you post. If there is a disagreement on the line then it will be verified that your line was accurate by the time of your post by checking the betting trends on Covers.
Rule 5- After the 7th day the winner of the battle is announced and the terms of the agreement must be enforced.
Rule 6- You can pick any sport worldwide. No Money Line on Football or Basketball point spreads only, Baseball is money line only. There are no restrictions on who you can pick regardless of odds.
Rule 7- If you miss 2 days of picks then the Battle will be considered a TKO and you will lose and terms enforced.
Rule 8- On the 7th day of Battle you can't pick the same side as your opponent. The player that posts first has priority on this. This is to prevent "clinching" the Battle on the last day.
Rule-9 I reserve the right to amend the rules as needed when situations arise._________________________________________________
Special Thanks go to the people who helped me in making these adjustments in order to make the Battle Forum successful. Booyahz, Crush and Knicksfan. Thanks also for everyone visiting the thread. The Battle Forum is meant to be fun but at the same time to put an end to the endless pissing contests that other threads have. It's put up or shut up time basically. If you can't stand the heat don't come to the kitchen. I have kept the rules as simple as possible to avoid the constant BS that goes with capping contest. If you have a beef or you just want to battle then consider taking it to the BATTLE FORUM your premier destination for Battles. http://www.covers.com/postingforum/post01/showmessage.aspx?spt=79&sub=101349468&page=2
