    Buffett $1mil/yr for life for perfect Sweet 16

    Warren Buffett is the man. The chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway has promised his employees $1 million a year, for life, if they correctly predict the Sweet 16 teams in their company bracket, according to CNN Money.

    Itís safe to say these are the highest stakes of any company pool Iíve ever seen.

    Buffett also said if no one wins, he will still award $100,000 to the person who makes it furthest through the tournament without a busted bracket.

    I just busted in my pants thinking about winning $1 million for life

    Does this mean I would be disqualified?

    They can make it 1 billion nobody will win and they know that. Remember a couple years ago they did this? Only offered a mil then though.

    I think the last time Buffet was only offering money for a perfect bracket........now you only need to make it about 70% of the way.

    Before it was for a perfect bracket. Sweet 16 much better odds, still a long shot. Too bad it's only for the employees

    Which employees are those? There's the catch then. These guys make over 1 mil per day easily, thats ashtray money to them.

    Could offer 100 million for a perfect bracket through the first weekend and nobody would win.
