some years you'd think it's pretty easy...everybody who plays the Jets for example...or the Jags is an auto 'W'.

Alas, Reality has a way of sticking it to you.

ROD has a number of awesome features. The annual pick'em and survivor pools are definitely two of my favorites.

Lets go! Sportsbook is OPEN.
  • Sportsbook is our annual bragging rights wager game, played at RamsOnDemand
  • As a member of ROD, you are automatically in the game and can start playing right away
  • Every week, all ROD members are sent a paycheck of Sportsbook ”cash”
  • We will start this year $10,000 per week
  • All members have a starting balance of $100,000
  • The amount sent each week may change as we watch the game develop
  • Members are encouraged to wager cash in ROD Sportsbook
  • The goal is to accumulate THE MOST cash and be crowned our CHAMP
  • Our season runs from the open of the new League Year, until the Superbowl.
  • Sportsbook is managed by ROD volunteers called “Bookies”. They do this on their spare time, the amount of games and wagers available, and the timeliness they are scored, is based on their availability.
  • And remember, it is all for fun, bragging rights, and a winner banner!
Last season’s Sportsbook champion was @VeteranRamFan. Time to knock him down!

To play Sportsbook. Click on your top ribbon, or click: HERE

We have changed the wagering system a bit. The maximum you can win in a single outcome is set at 25k at this time with just 1 bet per outcome. As the season progresses and players bankrolls increase we will raise the stakes up to 50k per outcome.

Hey @CGI_Ram It shows what looks like 2 strikes under the player name, Can you explain how that works? Do they go away? Does one come off if you pick wrong? Confused.

The "two strikes" illustrates this is a double elimination league.

Those X's turn RED when you have a strike, and both turn RED when you are eliminated.
