    LOL. It's getting to the point where you have to run the weather forecast though multiple fact checkers.

    Lesson learned.

    LOL. I've all but given up when I read a political posting with a link on Facebook...whether left or right wing. 100% made up.

    This one I missed initially. When I saw ducks comment about fake....a light went on.

    Have not officially posted my pick.

    Super Bowl LIII winner:

    Home team

    (That would be the Rams. Final score: 31-28)

    As with many degenerate gamblers, the Super Bowl is the last chance to 'get even', so I will be betting an amount equal to twice my 2018 season losses.

    No! It will not ALWAYS. The Rams coach is a young guy, but has shown that he has the balls to do what it takes to win. Case in point, the faked punt against NO. I would be leery to put heavy money on this game. I think McVay will come with a large balls plan. Might work, might not, but he won't be afraid to try some shit. This should be a great game. :cool:

    I guarantee you, Bill-a-chick will do at least one off the wall trick play in this game....I really don't like him or Brady or the patriots but you must give them their due......it is a tough game to bet......will be over 50 points scored

    After giving this game a little more thought, I am hereby suspending my declaration of "LOCK GAME" for the pats. The more I think about that fake punt in New Orleans, the bigger McVay's ball appear. I think most players like to play for a coach, that's willing to risk it all, if the situation dictates.
    I apologize to those that mortgaged it all, to play my "LOCK" if they cannot get a refund. It's not "DEAD" money though, I think the Pats have a good chance to win it, but it's more of a toss-up than a lock. I feel it's better to protect my 6/0 record on "LOCKS" when I spot some uncertainty, right TD? :)

    I am changing my pick.

    Ram's coach said they would not visit White House if they win.

    Screw 'em.

    Super Bowl LIII winner:

    The PATRIOTS

    I think he said no decision has been made or even discussed with the players.

    I do agree that teams playing politics in something like visiting the White House after a SuperBowl or World Series victory is not something I would do. To me....It's not about who is in office. I would go regardless of my political leanings....whether Trump or Obama or Clinton or Bush or whoever is in office.

    If guys want to opt out....just do it and don't make some big grandstanding statement about it. Let the guys go who want to. All teams over the years have had players who have opted out. There was never an issue. They weren't even questioned for their reasons. Now...it's a big play up.

    What have sports/politics come to when someone has to be asked about visiting the White House...before the game was even played?

    Not a fan of mixing sports with political ideologies. Mcvay should have just waived off the question akin to this guy waving off a "playoffs" question....insert "White House" for "playoffs".

    Very nicely said. I agree with every word. My "Integrity of the Week" award goes to Bases loaded for the reason he changed his pick.

    Gotta tell ya......My wife was looking over my shoulder and asked if she could look at the Forum. Of course, I said yes and went to the bathroom (for a while). When I returned, she busted my chops about all of the back stabbing, name calling and politics on this site. You see, I bust her daily about all of the "Housewives of......." shows that she watches that contain little more than back stabbing and name calling. I told her that I try to avoid that part of the forum and restrict my comments to craps and football, although I occasionally sin.

    I don't think that's accurate...at all.

    The only thing I could find about the question and his response starts at around the 12:25 mark. It seems in his most polite way...he simply tried to brush off the question.

    While I would have just said something about "I'm here to win a game and I'm not getting into that stuff".....he was fairly diplomatic.

    I guess he could have said..." If we win, we're going" or "if we win, we aren't going"....

    But I see nothing in his statement that shows ANY indication that they aren't going to the White House if they win.
