However, notwithstanding the aforementioned, Axel is a big boy and he can surely dish out the insults, therefore he can take any reciprocal remarks. I actually think he is quite funny and I don't take anything personal, at all. They are compliments to me.

I only request one answer to my question.... how many fake accounts here does he have? This is something the moderators should know and monitor, no?



To the first point. Yes, both you and Axel are adult enough to spar with each-other, but even jokey personal insults can lower the tone of the forum, so I continue to ask you both to be courteous.

To the second point. We can never absolutely know that a member doesn't have multiple ID's, but i have no reason to suspect that he has, or has ever had any other ID.

Shame on you..... I thought you were one of the smart ones here.

Remember in primary school, there was always that bully that tried to belittle everyone in effort to comfort his own insecurities, then that one individual comes along and punches the bully square in the mouth... the bully then becomes speechless and changes his behavior for the betterment of the class. Class dismissed. Have a NICE Day!

Primary school bully. No. My memory isn't that good. But I do remember being sent to stand in the corner when I couldn't follow polite instructions.

And I thought we were adults here. No punching allowed, not even of the little bully.

Take a day out.

Now it's class dismissed!

Ok, now that everyone is making nice to each other once more, and getting back to the original topic....

It's clear nobody is interested in the "bid" approach so I'll take it off the table. I have to say I'm a bit surprised as to me this seemed equivalent to selling the promo rights. Suppose a casino offered you some sort of risk-free promo like this that was potentially worth a couple hundred bucks but you had to actually be physically present at the casino. Would you pass on it because of the transportation costs (a bus ticket or gas money depending on your mode)? For much less than the x-port cost, everybody has passed on the opportunity. So it goes.

I am therefore going to make a new offer. Think of this as a no-risk cash prize going to whoever can demonstrate the best record picking winners over a fixed time period (e.g. 6 weeks). I propose the following rules:
  1. To compete, each week, no latter than Friday(?) noon, PM me 4 picks for the coming week. Any sport and any bet so long as it settles in the next 7 days.
  2. All bets will be treated as "virtual" bets of the same amount (e.g., $110)
  3. At the end of the I'll post the results for that week
  4. At the end of the 6 weeks, whoever would have won the most if the bets had been real, wins the competition

Winner get the following:
  • The right to select a bet of up to $250 that I will then place using my Borgota promo. If it wins, they get 90% of the winnings. The remaining 10% will be used to buy drinks for forum admins the next time there is a WOV social event.
  • Bragging rights

Any takers?
My goal of being well informed conflicts with my goal of remaining sane.

6 weeks of picks? No bueno. In addition to that, you can't just give pics in the beginning of week for the entire week. Pics are decided and given on the day of the games.

Here is another example of the type of play you will get. I hit seven out of nine games in this particular parlay 2 nights ago.. However I had four other parlays which were 3 team and 4 team winners, and I've already cashed out.

Good luck at the Borgotz!

Oh yea, the payout on that parlay was close to 100 to 1.

OK, I'm flexible. What would seem a valid approach to you? 4 weeks?

A free bet is a free bet. I'm a more mathematical, conservative sort and would just put the whole wad on a near 50/50 bet. Personally, I'd put my money on the Boston Bruins.



Bad call.

WatchMeWin, take a warning: Your last several posts have been IMHO personal insults, in words and in tone.

We get it: Axel is not your BFF and you object to his analysis.

No suspension from me, if you'd kindly lose the attitude.

Axel, please keep it courteous too.



I appreciate you coming to Axel's Defense as he was dumbfounded with my proof of 8 team parlay which he had vehemently criticized and dismissed as a reality. For the first time ever since Ive been on the forum and witnessing dozens upon dozens of insults and ruthless comments to many members of the forum, he was speechless. I take that as a complement.

However, notwithstanding the aforementioned, Axel is a big boy and he can surely dish out the insults, therefore he can take any reciprocal remarks. I actually think he is quite funny and I don't take anything personal, at all. They are compliments to me.

I only request one answer to my question.... how many fake accounts here does he have? This is something the moderators should know and monitor, no?

I certainly have the tools(multiple VPN's 10+ computers, accesses to a server, computers out of the country ), some ability, and knowledge how to make and hide multiple accounts. And I'm always trying to learn how best to hide who and where you are on the internet. And all that from the comfort of my home. So, it brings a smile to my face knowing I'm in your head and you think I have multiple fake accounts. I seems all too obvious when you go to the craps tables, when you are at work, or just sitting there chilling... you are thinking of me. I have no doubt you lay awake at night thinking and wondering what dark corner of the internet I might be lurking at and if I'll find you there and expose your dirty little secrets.

Before I answer your question, can you tell me what it is you think I'm doing with all the fake accounts on here and perhaps give an example of one you think might be me?
