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. 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 over $575,000 ($250,000 in the Online Championship, $250,000 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. Last year, 78 different owners were in contention for this bonus with Jeffrey Kozlowski coming the closest to cashing as he won the $250,000 grand prize in the NFFC Primetime and finished 33rd overall in the Rotowire OC. Nelson Sousa also finished 3rd overall in the Primetime and 14th overall in the Rotowire OC.
Maybe this is the year that someone wins this cash bonus in the NFFC. Good luck everyone.
