Maybe a Sports forum ?

  1. Maybe a Sports forum ? What do you think ?
     
  2. Watching adult men chasing balls?
     
  3. I thought a sport betting forum would be appropriate...
     
  4. So much talent wasted on such meaningless statistics.

    All though, at least I'm not up against these people in the market.
     
  5. FAN DUEL/DRAFT KING Forum haha
     
  6. Sports betters are degenerate gamblers. -- They are as crazy and emotional as their team fans. o_O

    For the most part that same description describes casino gamblers and wall street gamblers/traders as well.
     
  7. So they deserve their own forum, right? I take you don't believe someone can be knowledgeable about teams and consistently make money by betting?
     
  8. I disagree with the idea of any forum that specifically relates to gambling. A sports-related forum could lead to that, but so long as that forum does not specifically mention betting, that's cool.

    We need to get it out of the heads of those not in the know that trading is not gambling. That is a terrible stigma attached to trading. Unjustified and unwarranted. That viewpoint from the outside must change.
     
  9. I found that what other people think really has no control over what I do. If they think it is gambling does that mean you make less money? Sports betting is not pure gambling if you understood how it works. Fan Duel/Draft King is more scientific than most trading strategies.
     
  10. Come on now, what do you have against Cryptos? :)
     
  11. Speaking of sports....

    Sometimes the big games are only on ESPN.
    Like tonight you have the Suckeyes vs USC in the Cotton Bowl. Thats a big game.
    So if someone doesn't have cable TV... they can't watch it.
    Last year the NCAA championship was only on ESPN. Thats BS.

    There are huge amounts of taxpayer dollars that go into security, traffic control, extra duty for the cops, etc etc. Therefore, the games should be available to everyone, not just those with cable. It should be on one of the 4 networks. ESPN could use ABC.

    Either way... OSU should cover the spread on USC. 7.5 points. O/U is 65. Tough call on that one.
     
  12. Here are 4 legal ways to watch ESPN without cable:

    https://www.dailydot.com/upstream/how-to-watch-espn-without-cable/

    (Sling TV, Hulu Live, Playstation Vue, Direct TV Now)

    The cheapest is Sling TV for $20/month.
     
  13. Its still not free. Unless we give universal free internet to everyone. Oh well. OSU covered the spread handily as planned. Gotta work on Monday's games. Not as easy as last night. That was low hanging fruit.
     
  14. Quality content never is. They are using games like this to hook up customers. If I can watch ESPN for free, why would I subscribe to it for a fee?
     
  15. I'm a monk...I kind of stopped listening to (poisonous) music, and video games, and magazines/websites, and movies.

    It was just a random realization I kind of had today. -- and while walking in the market, I had no desire to buy meat and snacks/junkfood. Actually left me drymouth thinking/staring at those.

    It's extremely liberating when one can overcome society's...variables. and exists on this slight plane of...dare shall i say...superiority, to the fellow man
    Everything and everyone around you tones and zones out a bit, -- kind of like Neo in The Matrix 1999 movie
     
  16. You're missing my point. The point of my original post is that the "quality content" is being provided at the expense of each and every tax paying U.S. citizen therefore, they should be free to air. Under this logic, Neill Armstrong's little walk on the moon should have been streamed on PPV.

    And Lawrence Lugar... for somebody that doesn't partake in society and is so far above us mere Bourgeoisie... you sure do draw alot of parallels in life to the characters and plots of cheesy Hollywood movies. Hell you did it in the post above. :D
     
  17. The Police, Security, First responders, traffic etc gets paid by the teams or ticket holders surcharge,they don't work for free and it's definitely not paid by federal taxes.
     
  18. Big night in the trailer park.
    NCAA National Championship game.
    Alabama vs Georgia.
    Tide -3.5.
    I can't believe its that tight.
    Bama should cover that easy.
    K/O 8PM.
     

  19. Wait....!
    Before I log out... I need to do the Lawrence Lugar response and save him some time.

    "College football is like a dolphin swimming under an iceberg. To be a great trader one must be in tune with the top of the iceberg when the sun wanes behind cloud cover. Trading is part art part science. It can't be learned by merely buying yesterday's chaos. One must be in tune with the the saltwater.
    High five Xela... Make ET great again".
     
  20. Bad Beat! They don't kick extra points in OT on winning TD's
     
  21. Got to suck hard for all the betters picking Alabama with the spread but imagine all those Georgia betters who probably had better odds and then realized in OT doing the math RRY16 did and realizing they couldn't lose!
     
  22. What a surprise...that game, and basically every game, is just like the market...leaves people in shock and emotionally distraught that their crystal ball shockingly, surprisingly failed. o_O

    But the great thing about trading, is you don't have to make your picks before the game. You're not locked in.
    You can get out, or adjust in real-time as you see fit. And that's a Huge difference maker in those two arenas of gambling.

    That's like changing your bet that the Titanic will sink after it's 25% submerged, as opposed to making that same bet before the ship leaves the harbor.
     
  23. This doesn't appear to be a feedback thread anymore.
     
  24. Life always find a way...

  25. Move this to the Journal section since nobody follows or post there anymore.
     
  26. trading is 100% gambling, this does not mean that one cant make consistent money but to call it not gambling is not correct. Unless you can guarantee the outcome and you cant its gambling papa. Now if you have as edge which cheats the system then it is not gambling. There are people who make a living/consistent money betting on sports, black jack, poker, etc. peace

    As a matter of fact poker has many variables to consider when checking, calling or raising. Trading has variables which cant be seen, heard, considered at all while the target is moving.. ;o)
