Euro 2012 Prediction League: Lite Edition

Greetings.

I would like to announce my own prediction league for everyone here on XT. Let's make Euro 2012 even more interesting with the "Lite" prediction league. I called it "lite" because I just want to keep it simple: Predict a Win for the "home" team, or the "away" team, or a draw. The fixtures posted in this competition will abide EXACTLY as per UEFA's Euro 2012 draw. So this is to avoid confusion as who's home or away.

Although we're all hardcore footie fans with no lives ...I'll just clarify:

Poland vs. Greece:
Poland = 1 and Greece = 2

The rules aren't final yet, but I'm suggesting the following to keep things interesting:

1st Round Rules

A.) Correct prediction = 3points
B.) Correct prediction + exact score after 90mins = 5points (BOTH have to be correct and clearly stated)
C.) Outcome prediction winner is indicated by writing: "1" for a home team win. "2" for away team win. And "X" for a draw. (No difference between a score draw/goalless draw...I didn't want to confuse things, just keep it simple).


So that's it...I'll think of Knockout phase rules later, as I'm trying to figure out a fair way to settle Extra Time/Penalty shootout results.

Hope that's clear.

In the mean time, let's sign up! Dead line to sign up is:

Friday June 8th, @ 12:00 CET

For those of you with shitty sense of timing that's:
11:00 - Greenwich mean time
13:00 - Beirut time / Makkah time
14:00 - Abu Dhabi / Muscat time
XX:00 - I'm too f*cking lazy to think of other time zones.

Don't lament the treachery of time;
long have dogs danced over the carcasses of lions.

Don't suppose that their dancing raises them above their masters;
for dogs remain dogs, and lions remain lions.

Insult me as you wish;
For my silence to the depraved is a response.

It's not that I have no response, but;
A lion does not reply to a dog.

The Irish gave the bagpipes to the Scots as a joke, but the Scots haven't seen the joke yet.
