New League season starts with the Southend game on Saturday. Just go to the Stagsnet Prediction League board and start posting on the relevant thread anytime you like. New and old players welcomed.
The idea of the competition is to predict the actual score and result of league matches that Stags play in.
Points are awarded for predicting the correct score or result. In addition bonus points are awarded for predicting the name of the goal scorers and time of the first goal. However points are deducted for nominating incorrect goal scorers, not posting a prediction by the scheduled kick off time, posting within the hour before kick off time and posting the third same incorrect score on the bounce.
Normally each division starts with 25 players and we run two seasons per year. One season starting in August and one starting in January after 23 league games have been played. However if a player fails to post by kick off time on three occasions on the bounce then that player is relegated to the bottom division immediately but can continue playing. Also if a player attains a score of minus 15pts or more in one match then that player will also be relegated immediately.
Full list of rules are on a thread on the SPL board.
Those accustomed to privilege may feel that equality is oppression.
