I think you'd need at least 10% of the possible points to advance. So that's 9 points. Which means just getting 9 results right out of 30 matches. That seem right? Or too low?
I like Rush's idea too. Very common thing in the NFL with Americans, so I'm used to that.
Had a thought earlier and may try to mix both yours and Rush's ideas together and potentially have like 2/3 rounds to this thing. Essentially since I've started it like this already I would just go with this format until December. Put down a cut of point limit that people have to be on to go through and then In January we can do a 2nd round basically doing Rush's idea of picking a team and if your team loses your out of that round.
What I may do with Rush's Idea is still keep the same Talley from the August - December run and just add to it (Because I can't see the eliminaton style lasting all the way till may and we will probably have to reset it a good few times) i.e. Top 3 guys get like 15,10 & 5 (probably not these points itself) points respectively. Then Probably do a final round in May with the top 8 head to head playoff style to crown a full winner.
May sound a bit complicated but reckon it could work out.
