        Well I know one play will be on Sportscenter tomorrow. That was a fumble and TD. The whistle was well after he picked it up and how could the ref tell he was down for sure. Play on and let them review it. Once he called him down it's done.

        Eh', was exciting and we just started. Long way to go.

              Missed Aub FG to end half. 14-6 Quackers. Not going to get to watch 2nd half. Bring it in Norm.

                Just getting to see that last play now. WTF. I thought they would for for a quick out get out of bounds and FG. The I see a one on one outside and "fuck"

                Plenty of cash left Norm. Lots of time.

                  The Bowl contest coming up and has the same rules all these years with a few tweeks. Sorry this developed into the type of contest that isn't your thing. I kinda knew this would happen. In the future we can talk about teaming up on contest once final rules are posted. Thank you again Norm for being my partner. It's much appreciated and as explained I get to cheer on someone specific and join in convo.

                    stevo..... I have no problems with where this contest is now regarding the rules..... I was only pointing-out that second-half plays have a unique problem being validated because of several issues..... I obviously did not do a good job of explaining it..... Then, briane11 pointed-out that it would be difficult to verify (using timestamps) second-half plays because they can start at different times..... That's when clevefan interjected that second-half plays could be a problem..... I also realized that live-betting has the same timestamp problems as second-half plays..... So, I wanted to avoid that becoming an issue later-on..... As regards to anybody on this board, I see them as tough competitors, as am I.... So, I'm sure that we are all still "cool" with each other....


                    Now, I was more upset with the Oregon/Auburn outcome than I was with the second-half plays issue..... Thank goodness I only risked $220 of our bankroll....Hopefully, we got all of our tough-beats out of the way early..... I doubt it, but a boy can dream.....

                      That was tough beat. While it was refreshing to see a coach have the balls to throw to the endzone in that situation, very few would have taken that risk. Most would have set up for a medium field goal and take their chances. Especially considering AU has a pretty good kicker. I know you weren't on it, but That NW beat was horrendous too.

                      For the record, I'm cool with where the rules are at right now. 2nd halves are fun, and I think a person can find some value in those, but it's almost impossible to verify. 2nd half lines change extremely fast too. You can't hardly type up a play, and not have the line change. 2nd half plays would have created a big fiasco come superbowl I think. Everyone would be trying to do a first half/ 2nd half double double trying to get back into the money. All of the 2nd half plays would have to be private PM to clev or similar. It would be interesting to see how different everyone's plays were, but may have created some hard feelings. I think we've all seen half time plays go from -105 to -125 in a blink of an eye. There would be some that would be parlaying the 2nd half, with a 2nd half side, and 2nd half total in the superbowl. It could have gotten really messy. I guess that's assuming we aren't all at zero by that point.

                      This contest should be quite a bit of fun during the bowl season.

                        If the ending is anything like the last contest you did Analyzer it's going to be GREAT!

                        Good luck rest of way:)
