2011 OSGA Last Man Standing Contest is OVER!

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 – 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 – again, straight up. But, throughout the course of the entire NFL season, no team could be selected twice. This “one-and-done” 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 ‘anjac’ was still alive with Baltimore, but that turned out badly for him as well. After his Eagles pick lost, bimmercardo emailed Sunday night, “Hope everyone took the fall today!“ It turned out he was right!

According to the rules of the contest, “If 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.” We never thought that the contest would end with 5 players standing and the entire prize pool still available to be split!

“This is unprecedented in any of the contest we have ever run,” said OSGA President Jim Quinn. “We 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!”

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 ‘lucky’ in week 10. ‘rick’ mentioned, “WOW Unbelieveable! After the Eagles dumped I thought ‘What if we all missed’ , Couldn’t happen!” .

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 ‘Em is still running and in just a few weeks the annual College Bowl Pick’em will be available.

    Glad to see that so many guys cashed. I busted out too late for the consolation and too early for the free betting accounts. Look forward to the next contest – Thanks OSGA!!

    Loved the contest….thx OSGA & Badlands! I crashed in week 5, but continued playing on the side just to see how I would have done if I had picked a winner wk 5. I also would have been done week 10 with all the others, as my pick in both wk 5 & 10 was against my home team Seattle and they were BIG upset winners both weeks. Now I know the Seahawks are bad, but how do they go across country to the East coast (normally a 100% loser situation for them) and beat a Good Giants teams and then beat an even better Ravens team in week 10????
