BTW - fly tying? I fish and cant believe this is the answer. If he already fly fishes hes got it. If not, wasted stupid present. Really? Is he dead? Sorry, just the truth. Whats next, a backgammon set? Wait till u "whippersnappers" get older. Go with the Bucket List guy. The wife/gf idea is awesome might might have repercussions later. 
A stripper who shows up at the front door never gets old no matter how old you get. 10, 17, 27 1/2, 60, 140 years old. The stripper will always make you happy. My birthday is coming up, anyone want to buy me a present?

That's an interesting concept not passing cost to the retail customer. Never seen that type of Business Model before, any similar models come to mind? You're saying the books make so much money they basically are negative vig on a stanard -110 wager assuming a 10.5 - 14.5 tax.
Not a chance. Maybe the 2.5% they eat because that could be less based upon volume but not the 8 -12% on every wager. It's actually more than that to the retail customer because the tax is on the actual wager which includes the books vig. Using the standard book vig of -110 the $100 you're trying to win just cost you $118.80 or $123.20 online instead of $110.00. You instantly need to have a better win rate.

What win rate do you need just to break even?

Flight obviously way cheaper.

I don't mind paying 8% tax at the window when I am saving this much money in the first place by switching cities.

I will miss the giant screens at Westgate and the atmosphere. But this change needs to be made for me personally.

This is until Florida decides to get in the game.

Spirit into AC is definately less than Vegas. Checkout weekend hotel prices in AC b4 you go. The hotel rates are insanely high! Don't even think about staying at a non casino rat invested crack house hotel. Some of the casino hotel are pretty dangerous. 
You're probably better off going to Vegas.

Goverments do not care who will win or loose. The Government vig "tax" is paid upfront on every bet. Betting palors want gamblers to loose but not all the time because they too, have a vig.

Seriously, a 10.5 - 14.5% N J state vig on top of........ the vig?

Under a bill in the state Legislature, New Jersey would impose an 8 percent tax from wagers placed on sports betting and a 12.5 percent tax on revenue from online sports betting. 

Plus, casinos and tracks would have to pay an "integrity fee" each year — which equates to either $7.5 million or 2.5 percent of their sports betting revenue, whichever is less. That money would fund law enforcement investigations into whether the games are above board.

PASPA was also known as The Bradley Bill. The irony in all this is that New Jersey led the fight against PASPA. Bill Bradley sponsored PASPA in 1992, he was a senator from New Jersey.

Scal I'm confused, the 2nd pick gets $31m. Whats ur point, over paying a rb? I like the pick. 1 last shot w Eli b4 a rebuild.

Hey D-up, please tell me you didn't bet the LA Chargers by mistake? The LV (Oakland) Raiders O/U is 8 from my local. Your bet shows LA. 

LA RAIDERS UNDER 9.5 -103

Yes. 
1) Do not have an outstanding balance on any credit card
2) Make sure you make a purchase every month on your credit cards. Can be for a cup of coffee. Not talking the Best Buy cards.
3) Pay the bill in it's entirety every month. It shows payment history without a balance regardless of the amount. Get it?
4) People exist who fight to remove credit crap like you mentioned.  It happens. Cost is $500 - $1000. If its worth it to you.

No idea if Allen will pan out , but i do like the fact he has played in cold weather ....

I  am hoping he doesnt see the Field and AJ MCCARRON can lead them to 10 wins 

AJM is not "leading" anyone, let alone to 10 wins. Sorry.

You completely lost me with the snide comment, are you saying you like 2 slices of lunchmeat on a roll? And keep hiding behind that keyboard.
I don't recall the WR you mentioned. I do recall a certain TE that getting 3 square a day.
