    Mock Gambling - FINAL WEEK - New Leader but very close!

    Mock Gambling Superbowl Weekend


    Guys – This is the very last week of this years Mock Gambling Competition please take note and read the instructions as to what to do -

    As per every final week over the last few years, a lot of tactical picking and bets are placed, so, as per usual for the final week i've made the questions to have more options to provide more possable answers.

    PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR BETS/PICKS ON THIS THREAD - Doing so, is just giving the other guys the chance to bet and pick tactically against you thus not relying on skill/judgement and of course a bit of luck!

    So between NOW and the Kickoff of the Superbowl i need you all to PM me with what you would normally post on this thread - You can post your picks on the thread of course, but doing so - that just plays right into the other guys hands -

    Once i receive each and every PM i will send a return comfirmation PM and will make a post letting everyone know who's submitted - As per usual if required, a change of pick or bet is required submit another PM and i'll confirm from there.

    Re: Mock Gambling - FINAL WEEK - New Leader but very close!

    How long until I know if the trophy is mine?

    I know you are across an entire continent and the big pond from me... about 5:21 AM in the London as I write this as opposed to 9:21 PM in California, USA so you are probably catching a nap or getting ready for work...

    But seriously, Thanks for hosting this again this year! I am terribly surprised I was even in the running this late in the season.


    Well done Sir!

    GO RAMS!!
