    Guys, I thought of adding something new. Instead of adding a second Game of the Week from Week 10, I want to replace it by a game in the schedule that you guys would pick as an upset.

    Example, take Thursday night's game, Cleveland vs Cincinnati.
    We all know Cincinnati is the favorite to win that game.

    What you do is, when doing your picks, say Cleveland is my upset pick.
    If Cleveland do win, you get 2 points.

    What do you guys think about the idea?

    This is already what I do when I pick GOW. I take a match where I think the favored team has a good chance of losing for whatever reason (underdog has homefield advantage on an already close matchup, significant injury somewhere, etc). I pick this as my GOW matchup if I think everyone is going to pick the favored team and then I can pick the underdog. This is also why I wait until the last minute to make my GOW selection. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    I don't think most people are going to be willing to risk a sure point on the super small chance of winning two, though. You might need to incentivize it somehow. Take the Cinci-Cleveland game. NO ONE would have been willing to switch to Cleveland just to win two points. But if it had been three or more? Who knows...

    I like the idea though.

    Another option is to turn the GOW selection into an actual reward. The person who did the best is the one who gets to pick GOW, but it's not really any kind of reward at the moment because everyone else still has the same opportunity to pick the winner for GOW. You could allow the GOW picker to instead select a certain game as upset instead of GOW. If they elect to do this they automatically have to choose the odds on loser and everyone else automatically has to choose the odds on winner. If the chooser is right in picking the upset to win, their benefit is a 2 point swing on EVERYONE, but if they're wrong it's everyone else moves up 2 points against them.

    Optional though. If there are no matchups where they think it's a good idea, they can just pick GOW as normal. Some people won't like the idea because it's taking away their choice for one the games, but they're really just being forced to choose the team that's favored to win the matchup anyway.

    (yes, im aware this is more or less the same as what you're saying stangman, but with a small twist. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>)
