So let's post our bets here? We can keep scores and see who'll have the best results at the end of the season?

Hmmm, I think that'll be a bit difficult to do with this format. Just my opinion.

Actually there's a cool idea in here somewhere. For example, we could have a predictor type thing that people can do on their profiles. You fill in W/D/L for every game of the season and get points (and achievements) for correct predictions. Can also do stuff like predicting our top scorer, etc.

Yeah I had something like that in mind but much simpler. Of course that would be better....
Ok let's discuss it then. I imagine it working something like this:
In your settings you can view a list of all upcoming fixtures for the season.
For every one of these fixtures, you have three options: Win, Draw or Loss.
Once a fixture has been played it's updated, and you get 1 point if your prediction is correct.
We can now assign achievement badges for things like highest accuracy, number of predictions, etc. Can also show a leaderboard on the site, prediction rate on people's profiles, and so on.
Does that sound reasonable?
Sounds pretty good. Could have an option to guess the score which would give you more points...
I guess the problem is making sure no one exploits the system, which makes it a much larger project than it should be, really.
Well let's make a very simple one, see where it goes...
I'm not giving up on this. You people have no souls how can you not gamble?
I'm going for a decent acca tonight
