    Later today I will move this thread to the handicappers challenge contest forum. The contest is still going on, I’m just trying to clean things up for bowl contest threads that are forthcoming

    Here is a game I now believe was fixed. 19080 Lions vs Bears. 8 mistakes or bad strategy Lions made at the end. 7 of them would have ended the game if executed properly.

    1. Monte only gives the rock to Sims on 1st and 3rd down and punts fourth less than a yard in plus territory when a 1st down puts the Bears on the brink of elimination
    2. James Hunter appears to let the ball land next to his feet on Walter Payton's off target throw (not clear, though)
    3. Ray Oldham and it's clear bats the ball away with won hand instead of attempting to catch a game ending interception
    4. 1st and goal. Hunter again who short arms a point blank pick. It was a Kesha hard throw. Plausible drop
    5. 2nd and goal. Bears receiver wide open. Was going to be an easy throw and catch but the mobile Evans doinks the ball off a Bears helmet.
    6. 3rd and goal. Last play. Lions left tackle pulls to the right. Left end. Looks like Dave Pureafurry takes himself out of the play ouside. Evans easily runs through the wide open hole for a touchdown and overtime.
    7. The kickoff coverage was laughable. Zero coverage on the ouside. Everybody went inside. Only one guy had a chance to tackle Williams. Once he easily got by him and turned left, it was over. No flags.

    No way to prove it but I have my suspicions. Sims also dived right into a Bear on 3rd down. If this was legit, miraculous badbeat. Vince Evans beat them on a 95 yard drive. Vince Evans! Then the kickoff with busted coverage. No excuse. If Williams just made a great return, ok. But that's not what happened. He just ran to the wide open.

    Thanks for the update. I wish contestants would keep a better running tab. I know people are busy, and it's tedious/time-consuming, but it's more fun, if you know where everyone is at.

    This is a bit like a poker tournament. I recall playing poker, and so often early on, you'll fold AJ because it's just going to get you in trouble, but later in the tournament, when the blinds have grown, and are forcing the action, suddenly you're pushing with much lessor hands.

    There are probably lots of games I should have bet more on, and as we grind towards the finish line, eventually contestants will be pushing all in, on coin flips. It doesnt take much to get the lead in this contest. Even the last place person, can be in a commanding lead, with two all-ins. In hind sight there were many opportunities to grow my bankroll to 30k. That would have been nice. Happy to be plus money at this point. That was my goal.

    I don't play fantasy football anymore, and with officiating, don't really follow the NFL hardly at all the past couple years. I'm running out of college football season. Conference play is far more predictable than bowl games, in my opinion. Soon I'll have to make my move on the NFL. I'm not looking forward to it. I'm of the opinion the NFL outcomes are orchestrated, and it's tough to ever have a lock. I don't think ther is such thing... well, outside of the vikings always losing in Chicago...that's a given.

    I suppose to be safe, you should decide whether the NFL all star game is fair game. I don't care either way.

    I just think the bowl games are fun. And this contest gives me something else to have riding on them. As I am usually grading, I have to watch all of them anyway (well, most of them anyway), I may as well have some additional plays on them. It's all in fun.

    Actually happy that’s the case . We got 8 k and Chris is at 16. More time the better if he ever stops losing the step out plays. He is nailing those I watch for em.

    We will go with NFL AND COLLEGE FOOTBALL ONLY. You can wager on sides, totals, moneylines and parlays (8 team max). The 2 books that you can use for your lines are BOOKMAKER AND BETONLINE

    Everyone starts with a bankroll of $10,000. You lose your bankroll and you are out. There are no limits on how often or how many picks you want to make....just grade your picks promptly.
    I was asking because it wasn't clear in this post. Many have been deleted so cool. I was good with whatever but glad it was posted at some point. All games left thru Superbowl sounds great.

    I found this from my original set of rules. To me that includes all football games through the end of the superbowl.
    Ok that makes it easier! I guess I was just thinking about bowl contest...brain fart...lol

    im glad rules already established

    Why wouldn't you want to include the bowl games? That's the best part of the whole season. I love betting bowl games.
