Shut Up, Dave.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I actually agree with Brenchel.

Seeing Dave cry about his U-Turn for several minutes was pretty embarrassing to watch, especially since they were U-Turned when they were in second place. It wasn't one of those bury-the-guy-in-last-place ones, and they finished before the Globetrotters even appeared. Instead, Dave goes on this pious and mighty rant about his age (like he should be expecting special treatment) and then proceeding to act like a child.

They wanted a first place finish, Dave. Teams do that sometimes. You can be angry about it, but stop acting like a baby about it.

Week 8 Results
1st place - Brendon/Rachel (2x)
2nd place - Jet/Cord (1.5x)
3rd place - Leo/Jamal (1.2x)
4th place - Dave/Connor (.8x)
5th place - Caroline/Jennifer (.5x)
6th place - Flight Time/Big Easy (0x)

Uneven Week

It was another one of those weeks where the scores were all over the board. There were several players who did really well, several players who did not-so-well, and a bunch of players who stayed about the same. The bonus game was pretty well spread out too, with maaaaybe about 1/3 to a half of the entries getting it right.

This week's Greatest Gainer Award goes to Chiubakka, who climbed up a very nice 4 ranks this week. Way to go!

The Perfect Bet Award also goes to Chiubakka (1.84x), thanks to a great bonus pick and a solid Jet/Cord regular wager. Great job!

Week 8 Payout Table

Yes, we have officially reached the evenly spaced .5x table.

Bonus Game - Bank Bank Bank

Do you feel that you're not getting enough of a thrill in wagering your own points? Well, here's an opportunity for you!

This week, I'll let you borrow up to 500 points, even more than a max bet's worth. What's more, I'll let you bet on whatever team(s) you want with it, even if you've already laid a max bet on them with your own points.

This wager would be completely separate on your other wagers, and would be subject to the same payout table.

However,

Unlike in other years where we've done this bonus, the "Ignore Team" makes the bonus game a little confusing. As with all other bonus games this year, this bonus game is completely independent of the Ignore Team rules, so none of those wagering rules apply. That means, for your bonus game wager only, you may wager on a team you ignored last week. And the team you ignore this week doesn't affect your bonus game's team rankings.

For example, if you had 500 points this week, and you ignored Brendon/Rachel last week, your wager might look like:

400 points - Jet/Cord
100 points - Leo/Jamal

Borrowing 500 points
500 points - Brendon/Rachel

In this example, even though you ignored Brendon/Rachel last week (and cannot regular wager on them), you could still dump your 500 loaned points on them if you still like them. Easy, right?

The only downside? I'm charging 20% interest. Interest sucks, huh?

That means, if you borrow the full 500 points this week, you have to pay back... (a) the 500 points I loaned you, and (b) 100 points (20%) in interest. That would be a total of 600 points I'd be collecting from you next week.

Now, if you turned the 500 points into a cool 1000, paying up wouldn't be such a big deal. But, if it only netted 250 or (gawd-forbid) 0 points... Well, I still want my points back.

Remember, this wager counts separate from your regular wager. If you choose to borrow points, specify the number of points you're borrowing and label that wager separately. No flat 900-point wagers on one team; do it as a regular 400 and a bonus 500. And you don't have to borrow all 500 points. That's just the maximum loan I'm giving.

TAR24 Teams Remaining
Brendon/Rachel
Caroline/Jennifer
Dave/Connor
Jet/Cord
Leo/Jamal

Good luck!
