$200 Prize. Winner(s) join me and winner of fall season in buying beers for all players before the first home playoff game.

Despite what I said, anything the finalists decide together is fine, but no agreement and the final is replayed next week.

All this talk probably guarantees that there will be a Monday morning score adjustment and one team or the other emerges as the winner.

Yeah my share's going to a group bar tab before the first playoff game, same as last year.
Replay this week with both finalists taking their entry back and all remaining proceeds to booze?

I am not sure I understand what the deal is, but whatever you both agree on has my approval.
I found it confusing as well. Though it doesn't matter as long as both of them understand it, the lawyer in me can't help but try to advance the meeting of the minds by restating it as best as I understand it:

They are going to replay the matchup this week, but only for purposes of having a winner crowned. Regardless of who wins, both players will take back their entry fee but put the remaining net proceeds towards the booze kitty.

Did I get that right?

That sounds about right. Although not sure $150 will be enough for a booze tab if Fred Jr. is in attendance. Maybe I'll just leave him outside.

My understanding is they'll each pick 5 players. If any player scores that round, they get 1 point. whoever 'scores' more wins...? Though what happens if they tie then?

The 2019 Pigeon Cup Final ended in a 95-95 tie between Haak A Loogie FredMertz FredMertz and Keaton Parks and Recreation dummyrun dummyrun

The Final will be replayed this week.
It's my understanding that if a winner cannot be determined after 1 round of final play, the regaining champions keeps his/her/they title, however cash payments are equally distributed back to all competitors. :p

The last part is correct, it's just that all redistributions will be issued in beer form so you'd better come prepared to drink your way back into the black.

Thanks all. I did my best to screw it up, but I failed in the end.
