International Feed Competition Rules

This is the 2nd year of the (revived) international feed competition! Yours truly was the defending champion but had close competition from The Wanderer, Mark, and for a while Zac Quinn. Here are the rules for this season.....

Scoring Points

- 3 points for a correct commentary pairing, 1 for partial pairing, and 0 for an incorrect comm and co-comm.

- Winning outright (and outright only with no tiebreakers) in consecutive weeks will earn you 10 bonus points.

- 100% in the international feed is probably never going to happen, but if it does you win 30 extra points.

Fixture Selection

- There will be no fewer than 5 games chosen every single round. The main focus will be the English Premier League with an odd FA Cup game thrown in. I may also add in a low-end group stage Champions League game as a bonus fixture, where you can just use the Sky Sports commentators. A typical weekend would be like this:

West Ham vs. Stoke........12:45 PM.......Sky Sports Live
Liverpool vs. Blackpool........3:00 PM.......Football First
Sunderland vs. Aston Villa.........3:00 PM.........Football First
Chelsea vs. Blackburn..........5:30 PM........ESPN
Fulham vs. Man City (Sun).........4:00 PM.......Sky Sports Live
Man Utd vs. Birmingham (Mon)........8:00 PM.......Sky Sports Live

- The fixtures list is published every Thursday and the deadline is the following Tuesday at 8:00 PM GMT. There will be a separate thread for each week and the thread will lock once the deadline has passed.

- As mentioned earlier I'll throw an extra "bonus points" game on occasion, with the point value varying.

Tiebreaking Rules

- In the event of a tie there are a few tiebreakers. Here are the ways to break a tie:

- Number of correct commentary pairings.
- Number of correct main commentators.
- Number of correct co-commentators.

If these don't break a tie then co-winners will be awarded.

Live Table

- A new feature this year will be the "live" table, which I will update regularly so everyone knows where they sit in the standings.

There will be more info posted on the commentators for the international feed but otherwise have fun!
