    I thought you said the bengals game was $11

    I figure put 100 on the even with odds, 100 on the points as backup.

    Just watching a replay of the game ..............

    At the play where Hardwina got hurt, I noticed Vincent Brown in the huddle !!! :confused:

    OH DAMN, I forgot he was even available/playing ..............did he get targeted at all for the game ???

    I certainly don't recall seeing him in on a single play. (just noticed he was in on the play where River's scrambled and lobbed the ball to Woody for a 1st down)

    So, to think we can win the way we did today without so much as a yelp out of Gates, Allen, Brown or TuTu, augers well for next week. ;)

    sportsbook requires a visa cc, I have only mastercard. :confused: Ah well, I guess I could dive into all the different online betting sites, but frankly I'm too damn lazy.

    To get the $11 bet, you had to be willing to bet on the Chargers winning by 13 or more points ............ as luck would have it, they shite it in ........ :rolleyes:

    They also offered odds of $10/1 for between 7-12 points and $5.50 for 1-6 points ..........................now you take any of those bets and you LOSE, even though the team wins, thats why I never play the points, farg winning a game but losing your money.......................sucker's bets. :D

    But I did talk with my Bro for some time the night before the game and was giving some serious thought to giving the +13 points a nudge at $100. ;) ('aint hindsight a Bich !!) :cautious:

    Hmmm, my account is still open, haven't used it since I left there in Sept '10 mind you ..........................wonder if they have changed things up since I last used it ?

    I could try and deposit money in it to find out I guess ........ that would tell me at least !!!

    Ah, capiche. Hindsight may be a bitch, but no way anyone sane goes for the 13+. Hell they were a garbage time TD away from losing that bet.

    In their FAQs they say no mastercards. maybe if they have an old one on file you're good but they don't allow new ones.

    Oh NO ........................I had the tab marked, amount in the box and ready to push, then I shirked the issue like a mangy Dog ................. seriously, just had that gut feeling, if we were going to win, it would be big (as in more than 13)...................but YES, you're right, I'd have been shitttttttttttting-BIG-bricks for that last 3 minutes when it looked like we were quite willing to let them score at the end, which would've negated any such collect.

    But thats what gamblings all about .................... taking a chance and playing the odds. ;)

    Thats a possibility also ......................Grandfathered in so to speak.

    Its hard to believe that the USA is the only Country in the world (outside of Vegas ofcourse, go figure) that still has huge restrictions on gambling .................. there would have to be 50+ sites online here where you can join and bet on literally anything worldwide ............. hell, we have 4 LIVE, 24 hour Horse Racing channels for farg sake !!! :D

    yeah the whole online poker takedown was bs. But if the IRS is getting large-scale screwed, heads will roll.

    Oh Gawd, you just knew that entire Online Poker was a scam, but peeps are crazy when it comes to throwing money away at the thought of making an easy buck, bit like these wankers that cant understand how those winning Nigerian Lottery payouts STILL haven't made their letterbox's. :whistling:

    Is that still to be resolved in the courts ??? ................... some big name Poker players involved in those suits for memory.

    Man, been a few years since that all hit the fan, gotta love the way the judicial system scurries along, don't you !!!

    30-1 sounds pretty good to me…there's no team here that the Chargers can't beat…

    I knew a couple guys that supported themselves fully through online poker. It was the wild west though for sure.

    Agree Lancelot, right now, no one team scares me and I'd be willing to give us a 50/50 chance against any of them.

    Though NE could be a tough go. I'm sure that bastage Belichick will have a decent game plan cooked up for us if we make it to foxborough.

    Oh my Gawd .............. in its infancy, it went almost totally unregulated by the sound of things and ofcourse, all the Pro's were affiliated with sites and making millions from it, that I'm sure was untracable by the IRS .............. there are plenty of guys who are now on the tour fulltime, that made their initial foray into the bigtime through internet Poker though................we just had the "Aussie Millions" tourney down here not long ago.................its big time these days.

    Lets be honest ......................any game against Belichick is going to need "your very best performance", hate the basticle all you want, prick is the best going around.

    Never ever underestimate the Pats, on paper you'd swear they are "so-so" ................. but somehow they are always competitive, thats what a great coach can do for a franchise.

    Where these odds from Lancelot ???

    Hell, best I can find anywhere show the Seahags at 3/1 and the Donks next best at 7/2 (3 and a half to 1)...............hell, even the Chargies are now down at 21/1 along with the Colts !!!

    Get me 30/1 and I may be persuaded to lay a bet down right now. ;)
