Not only did we lose close to 3000 Americans but this fundamentally changed our nation. It hasn't been for the good. We've lost alot of personal freedoms and our Police have become more like occupiers rather than Peace Officers especially to Black and Brown Americans.

"Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are" -Ben Franklin

This quote from Ben Franklin is where we are today in this country. Regardless of your race or economic status you must start caring about what's happening to Americans in this country by out of control Police and an insane justice system. These are the thoughts we need to think about on 9/11. If we don't fundamentally change who we are as a people then the Jihadist Terrorists will have defeated us because we are no different than them. God bless and God bless the United States of America.

my only strategy I can think of is situational games. trash talk, distractions, anything giving one team more motivation over another, team mental breakdowns. Baylor football is a good example. before the rape scandal they won many games and then after the scandal they cant even buy a game.

is it worth tailing picks from some top users from the monthly leaderboard after the first half (day 15) of the month? seems like the leaderboard is pretty random. one can go from top 2 to top 10 with one bad pick >.<

Yes it is. A couple years back I actually tracked it. The win pct is high. But It can get cold as well. We have alot of turnover now on the streak leaderboard. I believe the monthly leaderboard is the better to one to tail.

Click on the leaderboard and you will see a follow button. Once you click on that you have the ability to see that Cappers picks when you click on the following button which you can also see on the on the leaderboard.

Any streak is hard, its luck in picking right game. I have seen & heard all these guys say "Lock of the week", ya right put it in writing. Just go with the flow, pick what you know or feel. I know my streak and trying to get back to it again, of all the people on the Allstar page 1 only 5 of us have been able to get back to double digit streaks again.

Hey, Ducky. I'm curious as to how you got that information. The info on only 5 getting back to double digits.  I see the medals where it shows wins of 9, 13, 17, but it doesn't show how many times those were hit. Is there somewhere else to check that info?
Thanks!

You make is seem like 95% of the police are corrupt and racist. I believe it's just the opposite, maybe 5% corrupt and 95% that actually are there to serve and protect all people, not just whites.  In fact more black cops kill black offenders than whites killing. If people and criminals would listen to police when told to "Freeze", there would be a lot less killing. But instead, when people here a cop yell "POLICE. FREEZE." they act stupid and then people want to blame the cops for the offender not listening...

It doesn't matter what color the Cop is, if he commits murder he belongs in jail with the rest of the Thugs. Most of the people that we're are referring to were not running nor were they committing a crime but were murdered. I'm sure you know about these but choose to ignore simple facts. 
In regards to people running from Cops, running from the Police isn't a crime. The only reason a Cop should shoot at someone running is when that person has committed a violent crime and may in fact harm others or is armed. If the Cop doesn't know whether the person is armed and that person hasn't committed a crime there is no reason to kill them.
Lastly your point about Police being 95% good is laughable. Maybe 20 years ago we could say that. But I know based on acquaintances that I know who are Cops and other I know who know Cops we have a real problem in this country with the criminal culture in our Police Departments. 
Let's say for the sake of argument that 20% of Cops are bad. I'm going by the basic 80/20 rule. Most businessmen understand this concept. If 20% of Cops are bad why don't the 80% stop this BS? I will tell you why because the number is larger than that. The Blue Shield protects it's own and the problem is Cops are too intimidated to turn on each other. 

Now how do we stop this madness? #1 Better training. American Cops are poorly trained. #2 Bi-Annual psych evals. I believe most Cops start off well intentioned but become jaded after a couple of years. Psych evals will identify those prone to committing murder or have anger issues. #3 This is the killer (no pun intended) We need to start taking away pensions from Cops who commit murder and start putting them in Prison where they belong.

If you have honest conversations with honest Cops they will tell you how pervasive the Criminal culture is in the majority of Police Departments in the U.S. It's not pretty believe me.
