Well, guess its not retirement when you keep losing. Gambling has got the best of me.
I know I will be missed during football season, but nothing good comes from gambling anymore.
I can handle a loss. Like last night, Lakers 2nd half. Bam, blow out. Ok, I deal with that, I made the wrong bet.
But, after yet ANOTHER bs loss on Mem 2nd half, just cant take it anymore. I can think of atleast 30 losses this year in NBA and college alone on 3 pointers with 3 seconds left that killed me. Just doesnt seem right. Gambling is tough enough, then Bam, a 3 ball at the end ruins it all.
It happens 100X more against then for.
So best of luck. No more wasted weekends sitting watching a computer all day.
I just have one last comment.
I see people get mad, complain, and make fun of people who say the NBA and sports are fixed. Why are people in such denial??
I dont understand why people refuse to admit sports are fixed??
IT HAS BEEN PROVEN!!! People are in jail. People have been banned from sports, kept out of the hall of fame, kicked out of school, scholarships and wins taken away.
Why dont people think this stuff doesnt happen???
Do you really think Tim Donehuy(however you spell it) was the only ref who fixed games?? Are you kidding?? Is only one cop corrupt?? Is only one politician dirty??? Wake up.
They needed a fall guy, and he was it. No, not all games are fixed. But, when the times comes and Vegas is taking a hit, games are fixed.
It has been proven!!!!
So many people are involved. So many people gamble. Look at the athletes. Jordan and Barkley, two of the biggest gamblers around. Look at all the athletes who go broke. You think they only gamble after they retire??? Come on.
Every espn show, every announcer during games mentions something about the spread during a game. College football announcing is half about the game and half about how the spread or over/under was just affected.
Gambling is everywhere, and players, coaches, ref they are involved.
Yes, when you lose a bet, you cry fix. But, what is wrong with that??? When some of this garbage that happens, happens. It seems almost impossible.
Sure, we overuse the term fix. But, for those to say it doesnt happen, just doesnt make sense.
How can people claim games arent fixed???
What more needs to happen??? more people in jail?? kicked out of sports?? kept out of the hall?? kicked out of school and lost scholarships or wins??? more espn coverage of spreads?? more announcers mentioning it??? more athletes going broke???
Best of luck to you all.
But, those of you who claim sports are not fixed, are much worse off than those who cry fix.
By the way....PACK WIN IT ALL!!!!! 2013 CHAMPS
