In a sudden twist of fate the 2011 OSGA Last Man Standing Contest has ended . . . and not because we have a ‘Last Man’ left standing. As the contest wore on players busted out in droves, with more than half of the players eligible for the consolation prize â€“ a $25 Free Play at BetBadlands.co – for players who were out in the first four weeks. As of last week, there were just five players picking one game to stay alive.
This was the second time OSGA offered the Last Man Standing Contest, after a successful competition in 2010. Each week players had to pick just one single winner â€“ again, straight up. But, throughout the course of the entire NFL season, no team could be selected twice. This â€œone-and-doneâ€ event was co-sponsored by Badlands Gambling Hall who again offered up huge Free betting accounts for the top four finishers including a $1000 free gambling account for the Last Man Standing. In all, Badlands offered up a $2500 prize pool.
Last week four of the 5 remaining contestant picked the heavily favored Philadelphia Eagles at home against the lowly Arizona Cardinals. The Eagles played terribly and four players went down with their sinking ship. Just â€˜anjac’ was still alive with Baltimore, but that turned out badly for him as well. After his Eagles pick lost, bimmercardo emailed Sunday night, â€œHope everyone took the fall today!â€œ It turned out he was right!
According to the rules of the contest, â€œIf there is a tie at the end of the regular season (2 players left standing and they both lose) the remaining prizes will be divided among all those who were standing at the beginning of the week.â€ We never thought that the contest would end with 5 players standing and the entire prize pool still available to be split!
â€œThis is unprecedented in any of the contest we have ever run,â€ said OSGA President Jim Quinn. â€œWe are thrilled to be able to give 5 players a great prize like a Free $500 betting account at Badlands, but would have liked to see just One Last Man left Standing!â€
The winners out of a field of nearly 100 players are anjac, bimmercardo, Goomba527, rick and swampman4761. All winners have been notified to contact BetBadlands.co to receive their prizes.
Congratulations to all that participated and those remaining five, who each got â€˜luckyâ€™ in week 10. â€˜rickâ€™ mentioned, â€œWOW Unbelieveable! After the Eagles dumped I thought ‘What if we all missed’ , Couldn’t happen!â€ .
We are happy to have a had another successful Last Man Standing Contest and look forward to hosting it again next season. Football contests are not over at OSGA as the Progressive Pick â€˜Em is still running and in just a few weeks the annual College Bowl Pickâ€™em will be available.4 comments
