    Vegas tends to be magnet for this crap. More scams than you can imagine.

    While I understand "it's just business".....and people genuinely want to make money and they go about doing that with what they know. In the case of gaming or gambling offers to sell....cards, dice, horses, sports betting, etc, my opinion is they are all pushing BS hidden behind sound marketing principles.

    A gambler...a good gambler, IMO, makes his own money....gambling. If I can pick games at 60%....what the hell do I need customers for? At best...it can only ruin me long term while making a few bucks short term. Word spreads quick IF....IF....you are truly a 60-%'er. Like termites to wood.

    Here is Dom's start to the NFL season. He's claiming a 60% overall win rate which cannot be verified. What CAN be verified is last weeks picks. Here's last weeks NFL/MLB picks at $150/month...

    Fucking 3-9....

    Didn't think I'd be sticking a fork in the Jet's season in week 2, but Darnold is now out with mononucleosis. May be up to 3 games! I've edited my picks....

    NYG +2
    Cowpokes -5 1/2
    Broncs PK
    Eagles PK
    Rams -3

    So, you're suggesting a "CONSPIRACY"? And this is all "THEORY"? So if we put the two together, we have a "conspiracy theory". Tell us more.:)

    Conspiracy?

    No. That implies unlawful. Harmful.

    Are these guys doing anything unlawful? Not that I can see.

    Harmful? Eye of the beholder, I guess.

    Certainly not harmful to them. Buy their service as opposed to buying just a single entities service?

    Both are an equally bad idea, imo.

    So....no, your conspiracy doesn’t apply.

    Here..in case you are interested, duck...
    "Nothing like seeing FEAR in the sports book directors face"....
    "When they see me walk thru the door, they cower"

    What a bunch of shit....
    As far as I know....we only have 1 member buying this schtick hook, line and sinker.

    Happy reading....

    Unlawful? :confused: No it does not imply any such thing. One could conspire to do "ANYTHING", across the range of all possible actions.
    Relieving customers of their money, while delivering an inferior product, is pretty much the modern day business ethic, or lack of, as it were.
    If people were to suddenly start spending their money wisely, the casino industry would be one of the first to go. Don't worry, it's not likely to happen any time soon.
    Face it man, these sports touts, and the gambling "industry" in general depend on people, to be foolish with there money. That's the way it is. :cool:

    Bucs over Panthers in Carolina?

    Panthers 0-2 at home. Ram loss I understand. This one?

    Figured they would have a nice bounce back win. Not to be. Tough business picking Bucs in that game....not only to cover but outright win.

    And what on Earth was Cam Newton wearing in his post game press conference. Some new Karl Lagerfeld outfit? WTH? Looks like someone more concerned with fashion statements than winning football games.

    A first on the golf course today. I played with 3 other seniors. A 73 year old guy
    shot 72. I never played with a guy who shot his age until today. That's a rarity.
    He has a swing resembling smooth swinging Sam Snead. It was beautiful. He last
    name is Mayday and his (golf) balls are marked SOS.

    Good luck all.

    When I saw Cam's outfit, I couldn't come up with the right comparison but you nailed it with
    Karl Lagerfeld. I always liked the guy although God gave him an extra couple doses of narcissism.
    He has his own clothing line but I don't have any of it hanging in my conservative closet. That
    fuckin' hat looked like cow udders but Grandma would have loved the scarf.

    I didn't watch much of the game. Funny that Thursday Night Football has not caught on. Could it be the lousy matchups?

    I don't think that the Democrats did any more damage to The Donald last night. George S. did a great job in moderating. He's fairer than the rest of the main streamers. And he's smarter.

    Tough to take someone seriously when they show up to a NFL press conference to discuss game issues wearing that.

    My grandmother wore that.

    All the sports talk shows are saying Cam has to be hurt. Why else would they have run him off the play and direct snapped to McCaffrey with game on the line? Football is such a brutal business. Gronkowski says he's had up to 20 concussions! Lost consciousness five times!!

    Great money line win for the Bucs

    There's always the chance that he's about to come out as the NFL's first Tranny. Sonofabitch would make millions.

    2/6 for his NFL picks TD. The "Phillies" "Padres" "Braves" etc, no longer play in the NFL, :) anybody can have a bad week. Why don't we add this guy to the contest, we can use whatever his first five picks, or top five picks are, if he rates them somehow. I think it would be a fun addition to the contest. Where would you find his picks anyway. :cool:

    Make millions? :confused: He already makes millions. He's got a $100 million contract. Easily one of the most overpaid players in football. He is unable to lead his receivers correctly. He overthrows on long downfield passes, and throws behind the recievers on crossing patterns, and has been unable to correct this problem, for many years. :cool:

    Give me $90,000 on Alabama, I need the $15 so I can eat lunch. :) I'll bet not a single $ was place on Al. in the money line. Ridiculous.
