I made a couple non-monetary bets on the Super Bowl with Seahawks fans. One was that the loser of the bet would change his Facebook profile picture and cover photo to pictures of the winner's choosing for one week. The other was that loser had to wear a jersey of the winning team for one weekday. I had the Broncos on both bets (straight up, no spread involved).

Immediately after the game, I contacted each of these bettors, saying effectively "okay I lost, send me your pictures/detail on what day/jersey/etc." Neither of them have contact me since.

Now as a huge Broncos fan, obviously I would prefer not to do either of these things (that's the fun part of the bet). I feel like I have satisfied my obligation by notifying them that I am ready to comply, and the ball is in their court.

Am I responsible to do more? I think I'm good, just polling the forum.

There was no time limit specified in the terms, so they could both call them in at any time. I would, of course, comply.

Easy.... Wear the jersey as you said you would. You are unable to comply with the other part until they contact you.

I don't own a Seahawks jersey so it's on him to provide one for me.

I think the consensus among the forum was that Keyser did in fact welch on a bet with Mission, and in fact his name has been used in this context in the past. I don't feel bad about it nor do I believe I violated any forum rules. But that's not for me to determine, of course.

AcesAndEights,

I think we should just buy you a puppy so that you can get the attention that you feel you need.

Grow up ;)

By the way, I don't feel as though I'm violating any of the forum rules if I call you an attention whore. However, I won't call you an attention whore, since I can't get away with as much as you can on the forum. ;)

That's why I'm not calling him a lowly attention whore with a gambling problem. ;)

I think you are good. If they don't want to collect, that's up to them.

I'd also like to point out (as I've pointed out before) that when AcesAndEights lost the safety bet to me he contacted me right away (before the game was over) to pay up, and paid me as soon as I gave him the required info. No delays at all.

I have no idea what happened between Keyser and Mission. Can someone send me a link to the thread?
