    Um, it’s a free $5. EVERYONE that enters doubles their money. :)

    ps: now I’m annoyed that I missed the first ‘waste of your time’ league. :(

    Why on earth are they offering this? And, better yet, why is anyone joining it?

    You don’t double your money, you simply get your original investment back…

    I’m saving my points in the hopes that they up their offerings like DK. Please make improvements!

  • huitcinq

    That’s just free FDP right there, thanks for the link!

  • Jason10

    Maybe this is their new idea/way of having free games, I don’t think they offered free/practice games in the past, so this might be the new way of making it possible? I think?

  • huitcinq

    Nah they’ve always offered free games.

  • ksinn2

    If you have like a TON of FDP’s it’s free money. Take it and then enter the SWAT 30 times, win it, and then go stand in the tallgrass!

    Actually the worse contest ever would have been our other candidate for an April Fool’s contest…the “April 1st Rip Off”…$5 entry, no prizes. We decided against it because we’re fairly sure that it would have actually filled. Based on how early the “$1,000 Total Waste of Your Time” filled (the linked one is the #2 version), I think the Rip Off would have been very popular!

    It’s free FDPs, not free money since the FDPs can be redeemed for any contest you normally play anyway. I redeem mine several times a week to save a few bucks in entry fees. Why let them accumulate when they can be converted to your cash balance at any time?

    ETA: I guess it is actually two pennies for free based on the conversion rate.

    I challenge anyone to beat my lineup with the lowest score possible. Only rule is you cannot roster players ruled out or GTD.
    C Ronny Turiaf is a lock for me!

    I was going to post this challenge in the Rise and Grind this morning but when I wrote the article the contest was already at like 125/200 so there wouldn’t have been much room for people who wanted to play.

    The concept you mentioned was originally called lowball. Al_Smizzle ran a lowball contest last baseball season. You had to roster players who actually accumulated at least one stat (ie: they played in the game) and you had to spend at least 95% of the cap. It was actually pretty fun. Its tough to build a team that sucks but also spend your entire cap.
