The NFFC will offer a $75,000 cash bonus to any owner who can win the overall titles in both the NFFC Classic & Primetime Main Events. If someone can accomplish that, the total prize winnings will be over $300,000 ($150,000 in the Primetime, $80,000 in the Classic, $75,000 cash bonus plus any league winnings). Only those owners entered in both events -- and owners can have multiple teams in each event to increase their odds of winning -- have a shot at this $75,000 cash bonus.
This cash bonus is called "The Lindy" in the NFBC because Lindy Hinkelman of Greencreek, Idaho actually won this bonus the very first year we offered it (2009). Nobody has won this $75,000 cash bonus in football, but it's already been proven that it can be done as Lindy won $241,300 that year. It also happened again in baseball in 2015 as Chad Schroeder won both the NFBC Primetime and the Rotowire Online Championship. Chad took home the $80,000 grand prize in each contest and the $75,000 cash bonus enroute to $305,000 in winnings last year. The two contests had 1,704 participants between them. See, it can be done.
To win this $75,000 cash bonus, an NFFC owner has to win the NFFC Primetime overall title AND the Online Championship overall title. If someone pulls off that feat, the total prize winnings will be $325,000+ ($100,000 in the Online Championship, $150,000 in the Primetime, $75,000 cash bonus plus any league winnings). Only those owners entered in both events -- and one owner can have multiple teams in each event -- have a shot at this $75,000 cash bonus.
The NFFC is providing added incentive to our Classic and Online Championship owners by providing a Combined Prizes bonus pool between these two contests. Owners will have their point totals from each Classic team added to their point totals from each of their Online Championship teams and the owner with the highest scoring combination will win a $5,000 grand prize. Each Main Event team from each owner will be matched up with each Online Championship team from that owner, so multiple teams is encouraged. The top five finishers in the Combined Standings bonus will earn the following payouts:
