Sponsor reserves the right to exclude any finalist, reshoot the discussion, or revise the contest if Sponsor determines, in its sole discretion, that any material violates its standards and practices. A panel of three judges will evaluate each finalist based upon the following criteria: sports knowledge, articulation and persuasiveness, and award each finalist a score of up to 10 points in each category (for a possible total of 30 points per judge, for a total possible of 90 points per finalist). Then, on or about December 19, 2012, FOX 2 will post the eligible Round Table discussions on www.MyFOXDetroit.com and invite viewers to vote for their favorite finalist. The voting will begin when posted, and will continue through 11:59 p.m. on January 29, 2013, in accordance with voting rules announced at the time votes are solicited. Sponsor reserves the right to cancel the contest, or, at its option, to select the winner by alternate means if, in Sponsor’s discretion, the voting becomes technically or otherwise corrupted. The voting results will be converted as follows: the finalist with the most votes will be awarded 30 points; the finalist with the second most votes will be awarded 28 points; and the finalist with the third most votes will be awarded 25 points. The judges’ combined score for each finalist will then be added to the internet voting score. The finalist with the most total points will be the winner.
