Sig bet league?

After seeing the sig bets flying all over the place recently, or at least offers for sig bets, it got me thinking about organizing them somehow. I was just wondering if I formulated some sort of league, with some kind of schedule or bet organization method, in which people would have some kind of standing amongst other sig betters... would anyone be interested? It would clearly take minimal effort on the part of the participants, and it could add a little extra depth to the joy of winning a sig bet, by instituting a champion etc.

i think something like this could be fun. it give one a little more incentive on winning/making smart sig bets. how would the rankings work?the only thing i could imagine is the original post would have the records of all participants and it would be edited after each bet.

Ya something like that. The rankings would be more difficult early on, but if it carried on for a bit you could structure it similar to mma itself. Having a champion that everyone must slowly move up to challenge etc. I'm guessing Tallica will be interested since he's the defacto champion at the mo

I don't know if there are enough sig bets that go on here, to start a whole league. Bruce's Fantasy league is similar. There also used to be an event by event thing where you'd pick who would win a fight, by what method and what round. The person who got the most correct would then be named event champion, and a mod would put the title under their username.

Here's a link to the sig bet thread I tried to start:

the only thing that makes it tough is multiple sig bets. you should have to wait until the 30 days is up to line up another bet as punishment. if that makes sense.

Ex i sig bet for rampage jones and lose i have to serve my suspension before im back in the game

Noted, I'm familiar with all of that actually, and it's sort of what I'm going for. However, the sig bet thread wasn't organized by a governing body, it was more just a meeting point to hash out bets. I'm thinking more along the lines of keeping records, but I'm working on different angles to make it more interesting. I guess I should've worked out a full game plan before posting, but I didn't want to forgo all that for nothing haha.
