Game by game approach but you could probably do all the 1st round games in one swoop.

Managed to screw up initial registration, so had to re-register (with space removed in user name).  Original registration was accepted though - how do I delete it, as I cannot access the contest under that name?

EDIT:  The rules are -    

How to manage the participants of a contest?

To manage the participants of a prediction contest, from the contest page, go to the section "Settings> Participants" and in the "Attendees" section that appears, click on the "Manage" button to reach the management page. participants. From this page you can:

    Delete a player's participation in the contest.
    Add bonus or penalty points individually to contest participants.
    Designate other participants as Contest Admins.


Dinny - as supreme commander it seems you can delete participants.  Can you delete number 14 "Ball Hopper", but not number 18 "BallHopper".  Thanks.



EDIT 2
   Fixed it after a struggle.  Completed all group games predictions.  Can change picks if needed anytime up to kick-off, I believe.

Maybe a Just Giving page but not sure if you can set that up without the charity already chosen

Don't have to be in the UK and Pieta House is on there as a charity you can donate. Donations can be in Euro or Sterling.

You can share links then on facebook and twitter etc. if you want to spread it a bit further or if not then share the link on here so everyone can donate

I think we got point for getting '0' correct for Saudi and point for correctly predicting a Russian win. After that, Lord knows

It is 3 points for the correct outcome of the game and 3 point if you get the correct scoreline. I went for Russia to win 2 - 0 so got three points for the Russian win. I'm assuming anyone with zero points went for a drawn game or saudi arabia to win.

Think that is how it works anyway

Had Russia 2-1, it saved for the main contest only.

I have an objection gone in with the CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC. The referee's report gave me 6 points, even though I was a measly 3 goals out in my accuracy. To ignore his report and remove 3 points from a cohort of us smacks of disregard for the authority of the match official.

Ah now, I'd say you're a serious outfit all together and you've shown over the past few days that you're not afraid of a bit of manly hurling. I don't think you've got the respect you deserve and a few boys had written you off this campaign.

As we head in to the knock-out stages

It's the score at the end of the extra-time period (120th minute) that you are looking to predict.

Fair play Shamrock Shore, I missed couple games (absolutely no reason how!) but youíve won it in the knockout stages! Which, is when it really matters, fair play for Dinny for giving us an interest, it actually stopped me from betting during the competition!

Though my initial bet is still running!
