As many of you know, I've had hopes of going pro for the past year and eventually want to start selling my picks. Most of you don't agree with this but I feel as if I've proven myself by turning $1600 into $5000 HERE and doubling that $5000 into $10000 HERE. I am now going to undertake the ultimate test by trying to flip that $10000 into $100000. This literally could take years but I'm dedicated and have no plans of going anywhere until I do so. Once completed, I will no longer post on Covers but will charge a nominal fee for my picks. So come follow along and let's make some money!

Selling picks is really low class.  With that being said, congratulations on your winning streaks!

Far be it from me to lay down rules in somebody else's thread.

BUT... if it were my thread I would be saying... let's try and keep the non-informative posts to a minimum so we can read, tail and discuss as necessary.  So let's keep to a minimum posts consisting only of raising of glasses, four-leafed clovers etc.

Apart from this one of course

I could say that following my picks and profiting from my hard work without compensation is low class... but I don't. I offer a service to anyone that wants it for free and will continue to do so until I reach 100k. If turning $1600 into $100000 still doesn't convince you of my merit and thus warrant me selling my picks then you can stop at that point with not a penny spent.

I tagged along in the other thread, the last couple of nights, and congratulations on reaching your goal. I personally can't see any harm in switching over to the "dark side" and begin selling picks, considering where you come from and where you hopefully will end. Turning $1.600 into $100.000 is quite an accomplishment in my book :)

Will definately be lurking in here for the ride !

Couldn't agree more DJ, I know that I am greatly appreciative of all of your hard work in here. That said, it will be a sad day for this forum when you stop this thread, but I'm sure we'll all be happy for you. Best of luck today and the rest of the way to 100k.

Just a thought in advance, do we qualify for a discount when you start selling your picks? If not, at least don't back charge us for all these past picks! LOL Thanks again for all your hard work and valuable picks DJ!

I know we don't agree on sports investment philosophy, but I totally agree with that statement.  Everybody thinks it so easy.

Congrats again on the last thread. That is one heck of a goal you are undertaking good luck and I will most assuredly be tailing.

Personally I believe you should already be selling your picks.

Although having a much smaller bank roll then you and having to place smaller bets. I am quite happy you are not yet selling them.

I hope to get my bank roll much larger during this "The Final Chapter" at which time I will a) be able to pay you for your picks b) be more then happy to,considering it will be for the most part your doing that I have a decent size bank roll.

So again thank you for all that you do. . . . . .that said . . .

Any picks for today 04/28

DJ,

If you turn 10k into 100k you goin to be DA MAN!  As far as selling picks do whatever you want as long as you keep your integrity!  You have always been consistant and that is one of the huge factors that  makes you so succesful.  Keep up the great work and continue to impress the forum!
