One problem I saw the last 2 years, was that one game that the posted odds were skewed. 2 yrs ago it was the Jets total posted at 51.5(actual line was 41.5). Cant remember the game/lines that caused the ruckus last yr, but it did happen again.

I think whomever is posting the lines should have them proofed by another mod or nfl regular possibly not in the contest.

I agree with a proofread by any of us contest regulars of the initial posting and them hotpicks or jack or whoever posts them making a 2nd post stating the odds are ok to fire away.

Proof reading isn't going to hurt but we know when a line isn't right. If a mistake is made by putting up a total of 42 when if fact everyone knows it's 52. It should be brought to MHP's attention and fixed and whoever took advantage gets another pick.

To tell the truth this is a great community and for those that look to take a cheap shot that happens maybe twice a year well it's wrong. I've run some big contests in my day and I stipulated that any obvious mistake would be corrected and there would be no make-up play and you would have the play at the right number. There was never an issue after that. But that's just my opinion and I go with the majority and also would be happy to double check all lines on any contest that is run.

Absolutely NO excuse for a mistake posting lines. 14 to 16 games a week. Sides and totals=28 to 32 lines a week. I could do this for a 100 years and never make a mistake. But I live, sleep, and breathe football.

foot discussion

I had a side bet last year cant remember the guys name who I bet but he was shady.

I paid up to Jack, not sure what happened to the guy, hopefully hes not still on this forum.

That being said, I am willing to side bet and Jack will vouch for me I would hope. I have been doing this contest for 3 years, this will be the fourth and have never had an issue.

If anyone is interested in side betting me for the NFL season, please let me know.

Thanks

Doesn't matter to me. I have seen you around here for a while and I have been around for a while now as well. We could wait til the end of the season if you prefer as last time Jack held the money turned into more of a hassle for him.

I have also paid up and hope you would do the same.

Okay.

So $250usd sent to the winner between me and you after the regular season.

Payment sent on paypal.

We will go by whoever finishes higher in the standings thread for NFL pick 5 to keep track of our totals.

Let me know this all works for you as it does for me and we have a deal.

Yeah, I get what your saying.

That's why I don't want to have to get him involved like last year.
