I have been in this business for over 30 years. I have been able to enjoy betting but not as much as I would have liked because of my position.  I have made money most years and will stay in the "hobby".  I enjoy reading most posts on here because it is with knowledge you learn more.  There are just some people on here I enjoy reading and taking more from than others.

Hello again

How have you been.  I am not sure you remember me, but we have chatted in the past.  I am looking forward to chatting more now that I am no longer in the sportsbook industry and was unable to give out much info or ask for it.

I enjoy following your picks and actually love working with the totals you give out.

Hope to chat with you more

Hello again to everyone on the forum.  I have posted on here many times and chatted with you individually in your posts as well.  I have not ever put my pics on here because I couldn't in the position I was in.  I was a district manager of a Sports book in Reno Nevada.  I am no longer part of that company (It is a great company though) and now I will post once in a while.

I enjoy following (in no particular order) Megalocks, DoubleUpForLife, and Nostradamos,  I am sure there are many others on there that I should be following now that I am able to bet more and be more active on here.

Any other suggestions on who to follow.

Hello DoubleUP


Long time no chat. Hope all has been good.  I did not realize Nevada is your hometown U?


Are you still in Reno? 


Send me a message if you are. I am still a district manager at some of the local books.

Hello again my friend.  I know I dont post enough but I think you are an amazing prognosticator of college football and look forward to your score predictions again this bowl season.

General Discussion > Of course it's gambling > View Post
Of course it is gambling and the only people that say it isn't gambling are the owners of the site (they want to make money) and the lawyers for the site because they want the site owners to keep paying them.  There is no definition anywhere that would say this is not gambling.

NFL Betting > HOF game was rigged. > View Post

Yes and I am sure the line change had nothing to do with the fact that Pittsburg first announced the starters were playing the first quarter then they announced that none of them were playing and the line changed the day after the announcement.


Nah, that would not make a line change.  It has to be a fix.


Idiots = games are fixed

Horse Racing > Where's the people who say change triple crown format??? > View Post
You don't have the same criteria for each race just like the you don't have to play or be eligible for the Masters in golf to be able to play in the British Open.  It is a different tournament just like it is a different race.  And Colburn has no point what so ever.  He knew he had a horse that had no chance in winning the Belmont and he wanted an excuse from the start. The only owners and trainers that want the change are those that are not good enough to have a horse that has the possibility to win the Triple Crown.  It is the ultimate prize for the horse racing community and it should be tough and the hardest thing ever to do and just like California Chrome, average or in his case, below average, horses will not win the triple crown and shouldn't.

Horse Racing > Where's the people who say change triple crown format??? > View Post
Triple crown in baseball didnt happen since 1969 and no one ever says a thing.  No one has ever won the golf grand slam in one year. There are things that are supposed to be tough.  We dont want a triple crown winner every year and get horses that are just or below that just happen to win the Derby and Preakness (California Chrome) win the triple crown, that just diminishes the greatness of the happening.  Leave the triple crown alone and make it the same it has been and let the great horses win the triple crown.

Hello.  I know that Covers has tons of stats for all sports, but there are other sites that have as many or more of all different types of stats.  Which do you use?

I feel pretty good, I am one of the few that has a streak of 15 in a row.  I have my covers "hoodie" to prove it.  That was the prize for 15 when I got my streak.

 Two hours and 15 minutes before each game, officials inspect 12 footballs from each team and put a mark on them to indicate they meet the proper requirements and are good for usage. Then those footballs are given to the ball attendant.

wrong again...here is what happens

 Two hours and 15 minutes before each game, officials inspect 12 footballs from each team and put a mark on them to indicate they meet the proper requirements and are good for usage. Then those footballs are given to the ball attendant. The ball attendants (not part of either team) are the people that put the balls in play.  No team representative has any connection with a ball put in play.

If you want an honest game with no "after bet then setup the game", then they need to cut out the communication from outside to the stadium. No headsets for coaches and refs, then the game can't be fixed on the fly. 

This might be the most moronic post in the history of Covers..

College Football > UTSA @ Houston > View Post
I am still leaning on the over but not going to touch the side.  With the coaching change and some of the plays that did sway the game last year made it seem more lopsided then it was.  But both teams did move the ball at will last year and I think that will be the same.  Yes UTSA has seniors returning but so does Houston.  There are many returners on both sides and I think it will again lead to a back and forth game with it ending 38-34 area regardless of the winner.

So you cannot play in the British Open, US Open, or PGA in golf if you do not play in the Masters?

College Basketball > Refs just screwed Syracuse > View Post
The only people in the world that think that was not a charge is the Syracuse coach, the player, and betters that had Syracuse.  The refs got the call right.  The replays show it was correct, the rules say it was correct, the head of the officials for the conference say it was correct, the lead official for the NCAA say it was correct and every other person that didnt have money on the game and just watched it says it was a charge.

I hope they do something special for him on his last game as they did with Mariano.  That was a lifetime memory and a class act with Jeter and Pettite taking Mariano out of the game.  I hope they give Jeter something to remember for his last walk off the diamond.
