Last Man Standing 2017-18

Post by John in Louisiana » Wed Jul 26, 2017 12:55 pm

Welcome (back) to the Last Man Standing competition.

Here are the rules of the competition for those who are new to the game:

I will post a list of the week's fixtures. Players will pick a team to win from the week's matches. Winning teams/players stay in the competition, those that lose or draw are eliminated. If all remaining contestants are eliminated in a given week, a winner will be chosen by the following criteria:

1. draws beat losses
2. away goals
3. home goals
4. If this formula fails to break the tie, the round will be declared a draw

Players may choose a particular team only once per round of the competition. I will post a list of all remaining players for each round and the teams which they may no longer select. Once a winner is declared for a given round, a new round will be opened up and all players will be welcomed back in. The player who wins the most rounds during the course of the year will be declared the champion.
