    Scoring System

    You get 2 points for correct result (i.e. home win, draw, away win); 1 point for correct margin (i.e. home win by 2 goals, away win by 1, etc.); 1 point for correct score (i.e. Bohs scoring 3 goals, etc.). That gives 5 points for getting a game score right.

    If you get the score exactly right, you get each team's score correct so you get a point for each (=2) as well as the points for correct result (2) and margin (1). So 2+2+1=5.

    So if you correctly predict a draw, ya get three points regardless of the goal count?
    City definetly have the best bands playing at half-time.

    Yes indeed - this original scoring system has been in use for many years - before Foot.ie even when Eugene ?Montague?, a US based eL fan started it up by email. Anyone know if he participates these days?

    Ah memories.

    Also originator of the NBS system to allow you to miss a week or two, or start late.

    Almost a 10 year bump!

    Seeing as we are only a month away from the new season, I thought I would gather some opinions of you lot about a possible change to the points system. I remember there was discussion about it during last season. So would some of welcome a different system or maybe some tweaks here and there?, Fire away, don't be afraid to share your thoughts!

    I say we make it needlessly arbitrary and complex.

    Massive bonus points for predicting mental scores correctly. So nail a 5-5 and you're half way to winning the thing. Predict numbers of yellow and red cards. Oh, and once a season you get to predict a game will either be abandoned or one team will have to wear the others kit and if you are right get a massive bonus. And you get to mark games as likely to cause one of the managers to be sacked.

    Id leave it. If anything was to change id give bonus points for The Top Scorer of the Week. Adds a bit of spice!

    I think there should be a Presidents Cup prediction between the Winners of the League and Cup from last season.

    I still think allowing two worst scores not to count would keep people more interested if they miss a week or two. Bonus points for the highest score in the round is not a bad idea too.

    That's a good idea. Most years I find that at some stage something unexpected happens and I miss a week. Once that happens you're already fecked.

    I second these opinions. A highest score bonus is a good idea.
