Jesus Christ these are some unattractive games. My only motivation to even bother with these games is because of these bets.

Parlay 2x games

SEATTLE AT DALLAS (4:15 pm ET) (Dal -12.5)
Total = 46.5 - Under (3 points)

ARIZONA AT PHILADELPHIA (8:15 pm ET) (Phi -3) - Arizona covers (3 points)

That's 6 points total with the chance of winning 18 right?

I do wish you'd listen, Wymer. It's perfectly simple. If you're not getting your hair cut, you don't have to move your brother's clothes down to the lower peg.
You simply collect his note before lunch, after you've done your scripture prep, when you've written your letter home, before rest, move your own clothes onto the lower peg, greet the visitors, and report to Mr. Viney that you've had your chit signed.

I just have one question ...

How is it that you guys gamble enough to understand all this gibberish ... and yet suck so bad at picking games? :o)

Ten covers + Dallas covers + Philly covers

all 33.5 pts ... or whatever the max allowed is for me

If that's even the proper format. :o)

well hell I said my first game wrong. I meant Tenn covers the spread but for some damn reason typed Detroit. Not that it mattered because I picked the under, but still sucks that I typed the pick in wrong.

Looks like Seattle isn't going to help me either.

can i bet arizona to win?

if so i would like to bet 5 points on that

and i would like to bet 5 points the total points of that game is more then 47 points

and if i can make that a 2leg parlay that would be excellent

if these bets don't make sense, disregard it please.

"I just have one question ...

I haven't bet on a game this year - and am barely paying attention. However - With Arizona losing, I can't say I'm perfect on TG for the last 4 years. But actually putting money on TG, I'm 9-0. and 2-1 on this game isn't bad.

And dogs winning in the NFL (getting 1) is basically a crap shoot.

Well that kills the dog pick for the year. The worst part is me sending the fucking cunthead murder the prize.

I'm actually thinking of throwing it out, considering what a clusterfuck it was.

Wasn't fair to everyone playing - aparantly too confusing for others.

And then there is of course, the obvious blow out ending.

I am fully able to accept this fuck up (and learn from the mistake) and want to fix it asap.

Give me your ideas.

Beats the fuck out of me, bro. Whatever you decide you know some fucknut will bitch about it. I still love you though, in a very non-gay way.

throw it out

i don't knbow shit about that betting and it's not in the spirit of the original game.

plus, i lost all my points. i'm personally ruined and I WANTED THAT PRIZE!!!

Yeah, we cannot count this one. Murder can claim to be a champ, we should not argue, this will be his prize. But lets continue with underdog picks.

Btw way to pwn, Murder.

IMO, since Murder said he didn't even really know what he was doing, we shouldn't count it. But I dunno.

Yeah - epic hit.


Not that it's too much of a stretch to pick the favorites to cover on TG Day.

"Well that kills the dog pick for the year. The worst part is me sending the fucking cunthead murder the prize."

Fred: That's not a problem. Just send it Hot Rod's way instead.


"I'm actually thinking of throwing it out, considering what a clusterfuck it was."

Eikey: I'd be fine with that. Or you could just reset the game and we can have new contest right through the playoffs.


"Not that it's too much of a stretch to pick the favorites to cover on TG Day."

The picks were no-brainers IMO. I think everyone else just outsmarted themselves.

I wasn't. It's one of a ton of idiosyncrasies of mine. I don't play for or accept small prizes. I say small prizes, because I've never been in a position to decline a substantial prize. :oP

Alright, if you win then HR gets the prize.
Real Fred

Sat Nov 29 15:08:43
Actually, fuck that. I just sent HR something. I'll just keep the prize myself. HR wasn't playing the game anyway.
