(I just looked and Gruden was born and grew up some in Ohio and the rest in Indiana. It all makes so much sense, now.)



It seems like almost every football coach has ties to Ohio.

Please, DR. Your above comment is a thread hijack, not vegas or gambling related, and thus has NO PLACE here on WoV. Please follow the new rule.

I respectfully request that anything related to football, and the NFL specifically, be permitted in this thread. Does anyone want to make a wager as to whether or not the next new NFL head coach is from Ohio?

I expect that I will be back on this forum tomorrow evening polluting these threads. My laptop is going to the hospital with me.

I may re-join this year if Mission will have me...we had a bit of a spat a while back (on a political thread, of course)...all is good on my end Mission, hope we can forget the past and be friends again (insert olive branch here)...of course I know very little about the NFL, but this is "internet gold" as previously mentioned...that and Mission deserves a raise for doing this, I "move" for a $5 increase in entry fee that goes directly to Mission, do I hear a "second"...way too much unpaid time on his part to run this thing every year!!

Did we have a spat? If we did, then let me apologize if I said anything offensive to you or about you. I'm actually pretty sure I did, but don't specifically recall what it was and nor do I care to look.

In any case, I would love to have you participate in this game again!

In any event, I adamantly refuse any payment of any kind for running this game. Honestly, I really enjoy doing it when nobody is telling me all of the reasons why the way I like to run it (keeping all operations strictly on WoV) sucks. That's also not a dig at anybody who may have done that, they are more than welcome to play the game again, as well. I guess my point is just that there is no reason to bring up using a third-party website for anything again because the fundamentals of the way this game is run are not going to change as long as I am the one running it.

I move that Mission pay each participant $5 for allowing him to moderate this contest. I might actually play if that is the case.

Well technically speaking it has been POSITIVE EV most years thanks to M146's generous extra contributions, right ?
