    First Round correct picks receive 1 point(s)
    Second Round correct picks receive 2 point(s)
    Third Round correct picks receive 3 point(s)
    Fourth Round correct picks receive 5 point(s)
    Quarterfinals correct picks receive 10 point(s)Semifinals correct picks receive 20 point(s)
    Finals correct picks receive 30 point(s)

    Finally, the prizes have been generously donated by SBR and again the top 10 will be paid!

    Prize Structure:

    2nd place - 1000 Betpoints
    3rd - 750

    It's 5am here and we're in lockdown in Melbourne with a curfew and I log on to see all these threads about sports being cancelled due to protests??? I have no clue what's even going on. Our sports were cancelled due to actual DISEASE but they're now back up and running again to some extent. WTF are people protesting in the US now???

    Right in my backyard

    Black guy kills a gal at 8am

    Wanders around, then pulls a gun on himself in broad daylight in downtown Minneapolis (yes, same Minneapolis)

    Several blacks film this. Police arrive to try and deescalate the situation...black guy kills himself- blows his head off in front of 50 people

    Black filters scream "police killed him, police killed him"...video goes viral

    To try and preempt riots MPD releases actual footage of the suicide....but of course it doesn't matter

    Media run w police killing story

    Blacks and liberals do what they do best...start stealing from other people while destroying their own surroundings

    Now we have curfew here and national guard patrolling our streets

    Rest of USA too stupid to learn truth, media covers it up...sports canceled overva suicide of an actual murderer because he's black

    I'm sorry to say this, but his life doesn't and didn't matter at all....

    Edit:She took time off to have a child.
