Hey guys I have an idea for a contest, it's just a rough idea that I'm sure isn't perfect but maybe some of you can add to it or tweak it into something that can be implemented by PM.
Let's say we get 3 guys who have been here a long time (5K picks) and name them captains of a handicapping team. Each would pick 3 handicappers for each major sport. So 3 baseball guys, 3 hoops guys, 3 football guys, 3 hockey guys to make up a handicapping team.
PM could have a special section on the site that would track each team's progress for the year. I'm guessing at least one team would be profitable, and maybe all teams would be profitable considering it would include the best of PM in every sport. So PM could then advertise the success of the teams, which hopefully would bring traffic to the site. Maybe that traffic would bring customers willing to pay a weekly or monthly fee to PM for access to the team's picks. Maybe one fee for a particular team or a package including all teams. Again it's just an idea, I'm sure there's other ways of doing it.
At the end of the year, maybe the winning team would win something. Maybe a small percentage of packages sold would go to the teams. Maybe the captains would get something for their efforts. All just ideas for PM to consider.
Maybe this is something PM could implement, or maybe just a silly idea. Give your thoughts guys.
