Predict the Broncos Final Roster Competition – Requesting Feedback

The idea of a Broncos roster prediction competition has been thrown around in the comments section here at In-Thinair.  I think this could be fun both to see who’s best at predicting the roster and get some stats behind who people think will make the team.  Once everyone’s picks are in, I’d be willing to post numbers on how many times each players was picked.

I was hoping to get some feedback on this idea to make it go smoothly, get the most participation possible, and  yield the best results.  I was thinking I’d make it live after the preseason game on Saturday, and leave it up until maybe Wed evening, so we have some time to figure out the best way to do this.

The idea I had to make it as easy as possible for both myself and people voting, was to list the entire roster in the body of the post.  People could then copy and paste that into their comment, and delete the players they think wont make the team.  That would prevent any misspellings/nick names that would make it harder for me to analyze the results, and make it so people wouldn’t have to look/type up the roster.  People would have to count themselves to make sure they got to 53.

Alternatively, I could create some kind of google survey, although that would require people going to an external website, and may limit discussion.  I could also create a spreadsheet template for people to download and email back to me.

Here’s a draft of what the first idea would look like.  The position headings have a space to put the number you would be keeping at that position.  This would help drive discussion and help people make sure they actually put down 53 players.

Go ahead and give this method a try if you want, but I’m more looking for feedback/confirmation people are interested in this.
