IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE COMMISSIONER:

Been playing this game but didn't join the STN league? No problem! If you participate in STN, we want you to play in the league and we'll let you in at any time during the season for your chance to win a cheesy stunningly beautiful yet surprisingly inexpensive trophy! Just follow the easy directions below.



Yessss!!!  It's back!!!!

motorcycleusa.com has once again set up its fantasy racing game. I will again set up private leagues for both the MotoGP and WSBK games named STN: Experts on Everything.

AND, there will again be cheesy stunningly beautiful yet surprisingly inexpensive trophies awarded to the winners of our two private leagues. Be a legend! Win the HIGHLY COVETED STN FANTASY RACING CUP!

The game is easy. You register and pick riders and a team for each race. You don't have to know jack. See the site for details on how to play.

It's completely FREE.


Here's what you gotta do now:

1. Set up your team and pick the winners at the game site. That will get you into the overall games. You can join the WSBK game, the MotoGP game, or both.
http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/Fantasy-Racing-Home/Default.aspx

2. Once that's done, PM me your email address AND your team name. I'll send you an invitation to join the STN League.  It should, by the way, be the same email address you used when you registered for the game in step 1. Please let me know if you want to join the WSBK league, the MotoGP league, or both.

3. There is no step 3. You're done. Well, okay, not quite. You should do a little trash talking in this thread, but that's not a requirement to play.


Please note: real life is a little crazy at the moment so it may take me awhile to get the invitation to you. Don't sweat it. As long as you're playing, you can be added to the league at any time and all your earned points will come with you. In fact, if you're an STN denizen and started playing the game before you realized we have this little STN contest going on, no worries. I'll add you at any time during the racing season. We're hoping for as many players as possible.


GET IN THE GAME!  IT'S EASY! IT'S FUN! YOU DON'T HAVE TO KNOW MUCH ABOUT RACING! (That last sentence is personal testimony, by the way.) IT LASTS THE ENTIRE RACING SEASON! YOU CAN TRASH TALK! YOU MIGHT WIN A CHEESY STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL YET SURPRISINGLY INEXPENSIVE TROPHY!

And, of course, IT'S FREE!

Really, what could be better other than spring finally arriving?


Random announcements:
1. Trophies for our 2012 leagues have not been ordered yet, but they'll be similar to previous years.
2. The overall winner of the motorcycleusa WSBK game gets a pair of Weekend Clubhouse Passes to the WSBK race at Miller Motorsports Park (presumably for the 2013 race). STN players have come pretty darn close to winning the overall game the last couple of years. Let's go get this sucker!
3. The overall winner of the MotoGP game gets a VIP vacation to Laguna Seca.
4. Neither of the vacation prizes are nearly as cool as the STN league trophies, but I guess they'd be nice.

I'm afraid the rules are clear in the O.P.  This is a no jack game.

Hot buns thread... sigh...  

This is really just another annoying bump because the first race is THIS WEEKEND!!  Let's get some more people in this.

Or not. I think that trophy would look pretty good in my home office.   Smile

Final preseason WSBK bump to recruit teams.

The deadline for submitting picks for Race 1 in Phillip Island is tomorrow (Saturday), Feb. 25, 4:00 pm PST. I think you have a few more hours to pick Race 2.

Which reminds me: Remember to pick both races for a WSBK weekend.

By the way, if you forget to enter picks for a race, the software simply moves your last set of picks to the current race. That's dandy early in the season, but later on, when you've used up your picks for a particular rider or team, you get 0 points for those picks.



Hey -- wait a minute. Why am I passing that stuff on? I want that Cup!!
