Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one.

Whoa..... damn close. But I was pretty sure he had it.

Doctor X, what are your thoughts on some of the end game gambling options now that we've tried them out?
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

I have been thinking on it. What would not be fair is if someone who performs well during the game gets unseated because people who did not see no reason not to "risk it all" by the gamble since there are no actual consequences.

A difficult balance--how to make it likely for the game to be competitive to the end, without taking away an earned advantage?

It is unfair for 20 weeks of good judgement to be undone by a moments desperation. I understand that's how life works sometimes, especially in the USA Atlanta.

Why not have a playoff round - guess the points spread for all games. Over/Under factual accumulative points additional minus + divides = winner.

An odd thought I just had--we could implement badges of some kind.

First place still gets the usual prize.

1st, 2nd, and 3rd place get to add a gold, silver, or bronze ribbon to their sig (retroactive to previous years). Some people will accumulate a few over time.

Then we play by the original rules (as of 2019) with no additional last-minute gambling. With a token for placing, that lets the winner be the winner while still adding competitive interest in 2nd or 3rd if the lead player has an insurmountable margin.

Although I recommend the text for the silver ribbon be :firstloser: and the bronze :moralvictor:

I will be traumatized for life if I finish eighth and do not get a ribbon.

The 7th place winner's prize will be to select a ribbon for the 8th place "winner".
