An open letter to covers posters,

Why do u guys constantly feel the need to hate?  I cant stand when we have an open forum on this website to come together, all in the effort of a common goal: BEAT THE BOOKS, yet all I see are guys trolling other guys forums for the sole purpose of bashing their picks when they may or may not be on the other side! And, if they are on the other side, they have $100 on the game!!!!

Why arent there more intelligent commenters that come out onto a thread and contribute something sensible, intelligent or positive?

Why cant people get on the same page and push all of us gamblers in a positive direction with the common goal of beating the books??

Isnt that what we are here for??

Am i missing something?

-Just another poster.

Thats not what im saying Josh, Im just wondering why people cant make a collective effort to try and beat the books.  Im sure my efforts are hopeless, and you have managed to prove my point in the first comment posted, so I guess I'll leave it alone.

You are a moron.  When did i say be like ME? I said a group effort with comments that are sensible.  Im sure u have never had a winning season and are down this week as well, so its easy to just go from forum to forum begging for solid plays and adding none of your own.  Good luck to u.

in any case, your ideal will never be realized. gambling is not a mature adventure. you should just get some thicker skin & roll with whatever comes to your threads. up to you how you handle the world.

good luck.

Josh, u need not worry about me or my skin.  All i am looking for is to improve upon a tool that gamblers can use to make better picks.  Its not a matter of how i feel if I get bashed, im just saying all it does it waste breath and does nothing helpful to make money.  I know this doesnt matter to you since u prob pay out 3 of every 4 weeks.

Posters do make a collective effort, you just have to read all the different posts and sift through the garbage. People get pissed off when they lose and vent in various ways, one of which is talking shit in other peoples threads.

Nest. Josh gives you an answer and even that you cannot handle. Grow some thicker skin. You sound like a girl.

Take the Red Sox/Yankees game tonight as an example. Game hasn't been over and people saying the Red Sox is done, game over, Red Sox, Yankees in the in-game thread. Individuals will always hate one another, same as all the other mammals, all of which fight for their own survival.

Yes but we are not fighting one another as commenters on the site.  We are fighting the oddsmakers to get on the right side of a line.  So my point is why waste time fighting a useless fight with each other, when thats not where the battle is?

Because this board, and sports betting in general, contains a remarkably-high percentage of petulant children who are unable and/or unwilling to accept responsibility for their own failures.

It's really that simple. Unfortunate, but true.

i cannot completely answer all the questions leading to one's behavioral nature. no one is perfect, and many have imperfections. some just have more than others. is it senseless of what they do? the answer is: yes.

nest you are either a teenager, & dont know better, or you have no clue about human nature.

if you want a friendly collaborative to discuss intelligent concepts about beating the odds, you create a facebook group & invite select people you like from public boards.

but for you to expect a public board on the web filled with the global culture is going to give you such a forum, then you sir are a pet rock.

JFen, point very well taken.  This thread was meant in hopes of people realizing your exact point and trying to begin to change the culture of the forums. 

My point is that they can be used more efficiently than they are right now and become a better tool in the fight against the oddsmakers.  There are some really intelligent people out there and in here if u look hard enough, and all im saying is that if everyone had that same common goal and pushed for it, these boards could evolve into an even more useful place than they currently are.  

Does this make any sense to anyone?
