For years amongst my work colleagues and friends I have run a sweep stake on the NFL season. However over time my work colleagues have reduced and some years people don’t always fancy it. For this reason I am always looking for new people to have a go.
How It Works
There are 32 teams currently in the NFL so I have 32 envelopes which I seal with 1 different teams name in each.
This year I am selling the envelopes at £10 each (this makes the prize money). As people purchase them they write their names on them - no one opens them until they are all sold. I always put in for the last one left (I don’t pick mine always have the 32nd one) as I love the NFL and a gamble to. When all the envelopes are sold I go back to the people who bought them and get them to open their envelope. However if someone bought one by proxy then with their permission I open their envelope and inform them of who they drew. If people agree all the people’s envelopes I will be opening as a proxy I will record on on a video and upload here on this thread so people can watch it if they so choose. I will also in due course list who got what team.
At the end of the regular season
Division Winners = £20 (8 x £20 = £160)
Worst Team = £10
The worst team of the whole season gets £10. This is decided on the W-L-T (Win-Loss-Tied) record of all the teams in the regular season. Should there be more than one team on the same worst W-L-T record then the prize is shared equally by those tying teams.
Then come the end of the season… (after the Super Bowl)
Super Bowl winner = £100
Runner Up (S/B loser) = £50
So if your someone who I do not see in person but you would still like to take part then please reply to post and contact me to discuss ways to pay if you don’t know the current SOP (Standard Operating Procedure). I will then get a friend or work colleague to draw you an envelope at random and put your name on it. When they are all sold I will contact you and open your envelope for you to let you know who you have drawn (or if you agree open yours when I make the proxy opening video and send you a link to where you can watch this). SIMPLE…
So now the only question left to ask is “do you feel lucky…?”
