McArthur's MMA pool from Hell


If you're reading this, I'm going to guess you've been involved with this damn pool at one time or another.  The pool from Hell started in January of 2010.  McArthur thought it would be a good idea to start a free pool with no structure or schedule.  What happened quickly is 140 people decided to play off and on.  Mac had a book a foot thick full of people's picks when we met 4 months into the pool.

 

About 10 months into this pool Mac decided the pool should end in some way.  He decided that if you miss an event, you're out.  People dropped like flies.  But we got down to about 75 loyal free poolers and nobody was going anywhere.  David W-S even thought he had a chance to win at one point.  That's how sad this pool was, David WS was our leader.  But we weren't actually going to let a Brit win this pool.   Unless it was her.

Californication was one of the lucky souls who forgot to make his picks, but decided to keep his own imaginary score for months.  Can you imagine keeping fake scores to compete with a free pool you were evicted from?  What a fucking hoser, eh?  :)

Cali, you can stop adding your scores up.  The season is finally over.  Put the laptop down and go get some sun.

 

 

After a year of keeping up with stats our good friend Mac had had enough.  He has been MIA ever since.   I have kept them the past few events and am glad to say it is over.  Ulf Murphy has won the first and only season of free UFC pick 'em.

 

Ulf scored 5 correct picks of 8 while BNF and tr8k both scored 4's.

 

Congratulations, Ulf.  You may have choked in the money pool, but you'll always be the best at making picks that aren't worth shit.  That's something nobody can take from you.  haha  I wouldn't let you walk away empty handed.  Check your email.

 

Thanks for playing and don't rec this garbage.  Let's just forget the free pool ever existed.
