Im in. BM sent
Does drinking beer go before 3, after 1, or interval-ed between each step?
Step 4. ???
Step 5. Profit!
I'm all about the interval training.
I'm in. BM sent
Is there an update of who's in? Or if this is closed?
Should be getting very close now.
Hot damn, we hit 100!! I'll work on getting out the invite from footballpot.com by Thursday night. Below is the list of players. Let me know if you have any questions, comments or concerns. Thanks. -Steve

When are we picking numbers?
Edit: pick squares
I am guessing Thursday night at the earliest judging from the above post.
Haha. It helps to read.
Question: Assuming we end up with four distinct winners in this thing, each winner would receive 24 boxes-o-beer? That is, everyone who loses sends to only one of the four winners, right? And that split of boxes would be random?
That is correct and correct. I would imagine that the op would assign targets.
Just an FYI - I think when I sent a follow-up BM I got added twice to the list (50&67). I am happy to be responsible for both, but if someone else got left out and wanted the extra that would be great too. Let me know.
I will take the spot.
I'll apologize to Steve in advance if I'm stepping on toes, but I know he's probably busy setting things up - which can take some time - so I'll go ahead and answer some of the questions.
Once Steve is able to finalize all of the settings on footballpot.com and enter all 99 email addresses in the "invite" field, we'll get an emailed invitation to pick our square. I know that doesn't directly answer your question but gives you an idea of why it doesn't happen quickly.
Yes, 24 boxes of beer to 4 distinct winners. Last year we had 49 boxes to 1 person and 24 each to two others. For the squares I run, I allow a few requests (i.e. Winner A is my buddy and lives near me, please assign me to him so I can avoid paying for shipping) but I make it clear these are at my discretion. It would be impossible to honor requests from 99 participants so as much as possible I tried to spread it out geographically so the winners were getting boxes from all over the place. That's how I do my squares, it's completely up to Steve how he decides to run his.
Good catch Hindsight. I dumped the list in Excel and verified this is the only duplicate. The website's settings only allow one square per person invited.
This may work out well for you, but he may also have a waiting list of participants ahead of you who sent him their information. I know I had 3-4 alternates before he started 2.0.
We're ready to pick squares. I just sent the invite via email. Steps to choose your square:
1) Choose your icon
2) Click on the square you want
3) **IMPORTANT** Lock your square
The square you choose isn't yours until step 3 has been done.
Once all 100 squares are locked, the numbers will be randomly assigned. Good Luck. -Steve
Got your email...signed into footballpot.com but there's nothing there. When I go to join a pot it's asking for a code. Am I doing something wrong? lol
Follow up email went through with #.
Read the email and start filling in the spots!
Sorry, first time running a game I thought the details would be included in my first email. A second email/invite went out with the details on how to join the pot.
I'm all set! Thanks!
How long before you get the confirmation email? I've been waiting 15 minutes.
I also haven't gotten one yet.
Try your junk mail? Mine went there.
I finally got the email
Locked in Chang style
Locked in. Feeling good.
Mine was in my junkmail too, but I'm locked in.
Hoping for another W this year!
Please check your junk mail and Let me know you still haven't received the invite and I'll resend.

I have not received any emails.
Guys, if you just create an account on footballpot.com with the same email you sent in the BM, it should show up automatically. Did for me anyway.
I checked my email and spam and have not recieved the second email with the code
