The way I see the rest is

MCP -11.5
Tdtyler -8
Natty -7.5
SacPac -5.5
Lost Teeth -5.5
Wayne -5
No Nothing -3.5

This is all based on the books projections. If it's 1 or 2 games you don't mind anything can happen but I'm not playing someone would a large advantage going in off projections.
Me and Sharp are .5 difference I play Sharp even but that's it. I'll even give him the .5 game.

Well damn Paul you picked those teams. It’s not like they were chosen for you so you must have had confidence in them.

Yes I do but the MCP has a huge edge on the opening projections. Thereís nothing wrong with adding a point spread we do it everyday. When Duke plays the sisters of the poor can you get them even money. Next year you should consider differential EX: Yankees 96 and they win 102 team gets +6 high + wins. Thereís skill in that you wonít see people going down the books line of win projections.

Anything can happen but you have to play it as MCP is the favorite to win doesnít mean heís going to but thatís the way you have to play it. Also the picking of spots should be done time stamped and dated on YouTube. Itís not a matter of trust itís just a matter of doing things right. Guy comes at me not personally but at the board with Favorite and wants to bet everyone $300 even up. Iíll bet but I want an even playing field. No hard feeling strictly business.

I honestly don't know why you played because you seem angry about everything. This is how it works every year. Usually the teams projected for more wins are in that position because they are a little better. It means nothing though because at the end of the year most of them will be off in one direction or the other. People have the choice of using those numbers as a reference or going off hunches. You went a little out of order by choice and you seemed angry at those who didn't, but now you want to use those numbers to your advantage and get + wins? C'mon man.

Hey Paul some guy that posts a MLB wins prop and wins every year posted a play in MLB forum. He chose Minnesota over this year. I think you might have a gem there. I will go $50 but you gotta give me +3 to start because of that

Me? I don't drink but with your offers above I assumed you were hammered. Look at the MLB wins thread by mr Bruce in this forum. It wasn't a joke

I posted the ticket with the ticket # 5 hours prior to pulling the draft order and everyone seen that ticket # and it was the same ticket number. I did it this way to make sure nobody could think it could be doctored and was fully transparent.

3 years we have ran this contest.

Winners have had 5th, 6th, and 7th pick

Last year paulsam had first pick.

If you do not want to play in the contest, don't. But to accuse MCP of cheating draft order, is fucking bullshit, especially considering you had 1st pick last year. But maybe you think 2nd pick is the magical draft poistion, but they have not won it either.

So either play or dont, Ill buy out your team right now if you want, if not STFU. Thanks.

I didn't say you cheated I said it was suggestion and all of the contest that I get in it's done that way. everyone here has a short memory about a half dozen of you got screw by a guy. I'm not saying that anything is happening here so once again it was a suggestion. Dr Natty wants to play tough guy on the keyboard.
That will be my last word on it. You won't hear another word about it.

I get what ur saying I really do. Im just saying the way I randomly generated the order was completely authentic and transparent and would be impossible to doctor.

Take a look when the original link for the generator was posted and when the order was drawn. Its one set of authentic numbers from the original ticket.

I purposely did it this way so nobody could even suggest something. I know you just wanted transparency and if you look at the way the order was generated you would agree. Try that link its clear so every person who enters it knows there is only 1 set of generated numbers.

Anyways Paulsam I know you're a good guy and just making suggestions on how you think it would work better in the future.

As for picks personally I think the only guy who for the raw deal was sacpac since he was certain to end up with 1 of Detroit, KC, Baltimore or Miami.

If I was able to choose a spot I would want the lost teeth slot since he gets his 3rd team with the 19th pick but it is what is. I didnt want the #2 pick.

PEACE
