"its either no wagers on the 2nd card , or combining it into one giant event, Which way do you guys think we should go with it?" -hippy


We've always done no wagers on cards with too short of a turnaround time in the past but since there's an option there might as well be a poll.

Pro's:
--You'd be able to wager on UFC 147 if they were combined. Parlays would still be at 3 maximum.
Con's
-A 20+ fight card would I believe only have 1 Hot Bout instead of the usual 2 if they were kept separate as 10+ fight cards.
Pro or Con?
-The season would extend by one event since combining them would turn from 2 events into one. That could be good or bad depending on the person and/or camp.

I really don't care either way but I figured we might as well put a vote up to see what the majority thinks.

Under normal circumstances, I'd say not to combine them, but it might work out better here. Not combining them ends the season with 10 events, but only 9 wagers. Adding an additional event is easy enough. The only problem I have with combining them is the number of fights? I hate to say it but...a best-of combo card like the secondary league? I don't like the idea of doing that with the UFC cards, but it's a unique situation...and I don't know about a single, 20 fight card carrying that much weight in the standings..also, with a bunch of unknowns on the Brazil card, it would make it a little easier to pick for everyone. Just my thoughts. Missing out on 1 event for wagering is not so bad. I'm cool either way, really.

Honestly, I want them separate. Im more than fine with not making wagers for 147.

I don't think I could be up for a top 12 or 14 of the two cards when we've picked every single UFC fight since the site started. If they combined, I'd definitely want every single fight pickable. But I lean towards not combining them as I like having 2 Hot Bouts in one weekend and not being able to wager on the Brazil TUF card isn't a big deal to me.

I vote to either combine the cards with all fights pickable, or do separate events.

I am just not clear on why the wagers won't work. If there are enough people with picks made, wouldn't the odds still be generated by the MMAPG system once UFC 147 locks? Is it a concern about lockout time? What about using Vegas lines?

Not trying to bitch, just curious about the logistics.

There will be under 24 hours from results entered on UFC on FX 4 to picks locking on UFC 147. In the interest of fairness to people who can't log on every day (or in a 16 hour window to make wagers), they're not available. At least I think the short timeframe makin it possibly not an even playing field for everyone is the reason.

Keep them seperate, please. I'd like to just worry about one card at time instead of two locking at the same time.

This has happened once before, hasn't it? We just couldn't make wagers on the second event or whatever. I'd rather have that again. I think it'd be easier.

I guess I never thought of making a closing time for the poll. How about 10pm ET tomorrow when Titan FC starts on HDNet.

I'd combine them.

UFC 147 has TUF fighters, so that's going to be one of the best cards of the year wager-wise.

Yeah, that's what prevented me from fully committing to the idea.

Not sure what the lesser of 3 evils is...

1) Missing Wagers on 1 card
2) Missing picks on some fights
3)1 card carrying more weight than the rest

Combine them. I need the leading camps to do horrible so my camp can move up in the rankings. This is a do or die for camps like mine. I like the idea. Make it happen.
