    And this is how scamdicappers operate. I'll lay it out clearly for the readers.

    1) Scamidcappers claim things they didn't (and couldn't) do. In this case, that's Singer claiming that he won 68% of his NFL plays, picking five games a week, for two years. And that those picks could be verified at the LVA forum via his old posts. In this case, none of this is true. But he posted and declared it here, in black and white.

    2) After Week One, he was 3-2 in games and 3-3 in units. He could have chosen to state both, state neither, or state the games while skipping the units, which put him in the best light. In other words, he could choose a subset of all of the data that put him in the most favorable light or he could report the unvarnished overall facts. He chose the former.

    3) The next week, he starts off 1-2 in games, but 2-2 in units. Again, he is faced with a choice of what to emphasize. He features the 2-2 in units.

    4) There is an overall record of 5-5 in games and 5-5 in units. Not terribly impressive, but not embarrassing. He chooses to ignore that overall record and blather on about anything but his overall record.

    Now the old "Tipsters or Gypsters?" in Las Vegas published the overall record of handicappers each season, in black and white, and even published the cumulative multi-year records on its back pages. That is the kind of scrutiny, and reality, that actual handicappers face every day of every year.

    Singer will learn, as the weeks unfold, what that kind of scrutiny feels like. I just hope that he doesn't fold his tent after another week or two, using some kind of health or travel excuse to pull the plug on what will be a season-long example of just how easy it is to win 68% of NFL games ATS.

    It's easier to crawl walls like Spider-Man.

    Of course, another way to try to deflect from reality is to martingale the units as the season goes on. Are you 5-5 after 10 games? Next week, make each game worth two units. Are you 10-10 after four weeks? Make each game worth five units. And so on and so on.

    You are so pathetic Singer. You really are. Someone like Seedvalue comes along and says anything at all negative about me and you get a hard-on. Figuratively of course as you are long past being able to get an erection, with or without pharmaceutical assistance. Doesn't matter what the person says, or if you have already determined them to be a phony (like you did with Mdawg). If they say anything at all negative about me, they are your new best friend, simply because you are so consumed with me.

    Anyone with half a brain, which leaves you out, understands what occurred with seedvalue. When he showed up, a number of AP members were communicating as to who he might be. The consensus was Jeffrey Warren Toll. I threw it out there, publicly. Dan Druff says that is not who he is and I accepted that and apologized to seedvalue several times. I guess he is unable to accept that so he attacks me with a rather bizarre accusation. No need to even respond to it anymore.

    Waaa....waaa....waaa....every time you get pegged by an expert gambler, you go balastic and end up in face-saving mode.

    Making up scenarios doesn't even help you sleep better. Easy to determine based on how much you're sweating right now :) You've been exposed as an attention & relevance-seeking fraud your entire concocted forum life. And HOW GREAT is that!

    Hey, Ozzy, you make any money betting football this week?

    As someone who often takes college dogs that get annihilated, I have some empathy for Mr. Singer tonight. However, it's really, really rare to take two NFL teams that are getting outscored 65-14 at this point. I've been doing this for 40 years, and I'm not sure I ever managed to take two NFL teams the same day getting waylaid 65-14. That's a historic accomplishment.

    But he managed to do it.

    Maybe the Vikings can come back and make a game of it. We'll see.

    Better luck next week, Rob. You'll do better. Hang in there, baby. That handicapping limelight can be a rugged road.

    Hey, MrV, I hadn't seen this until now. Thanks for reading the story. It's very cool that you got the book and enjoyed the story.

    It was an interesting assignment -- I was asked at the last minute because they were short a couple of stories, so I had about 72 hours to get it done. I'm sure if I'd sat with it a couple of weeks, it would have been considerably better, but I don't mind putting somewhat unpolished stuff out there, as that's what journalism is, actually. Deadlines and do your best.

    When they asked me, I said I had no car stories from my youth and that all my cars were sort of junk. But then one guy mentioned that he'd seen a photo of me when I was 17 posing with a bunch of youths (think My Cousin Vinnie) in front of a Lincoln in a cemetery, and I was in the middle of the picture. So I said, yeah, that was not my car, but guess I do have a story.

    Thanks again -- very much appreciated.

    And now you're not. LOL. "Brutal, Juice, brutal," as Arnold Palmer used to say in Hertz commercials. But keep your head up. While 68% may not be achievable, you can still aspire to 50. Good luck.

    No one has ever exposed me Rob, except in your imaginary world. Several people have tried, found me and ended up verifying I am exactly who and what I have claimed, a mid level blackjack card counter, with focus on longevity. But keep living in your make-believe world of Newells, a stolen double-up bug claim, fantasy jackpots and that I am not who and what I have stated despite overwhelming evidence that I am.

    THAT sir, is great....that it is killing you....literally.

    And BTW, 4-6, down $260 after two weeks. Can we put yet another ridiculous, imaginary Singer claim/fantasy to bed. Only one making any money are those betting against your picks.

    You think you are so fucking smart, but Rob, you are exactly what the sportsbooks make a living on....degenerate gamblers who do about as good as a coin toss, who bet at negative EV (the juice).

    Every single thing you do and say, just screams degenerate gambler, including your anger and bitterness towards those that play with an advantage and win.

    Speaking of which, tomorrow I'll post my results in various offshore sports book contests. I'll post them at VCT and link them here. Usually, although not always, when I'm in the hunt this early in the season, I tend to stay in the hunt. So we'll see what happens. I know I'm tied for sixth in Northbet's NFL contest, but I'll verify the other standings and post them late tomorrow. I haven't seen an exact figure, but Northbet is probably down to between 500 and 1000 entrants due to wagering and deposit qualifications. Folks can follow my results as they unfold week to week at these sports books during the season.

    Every time you've been exposed as a phony and serial liar, you come up with the same fabricated nonsense that "people who've doubted me then looked me up and like magic, they found I was telling the truth". Yet you NEVER provide names so any of that can be verified by them on the forums where you get exposed as a fraud....time and again.

    You're a broken down democrat kew. Every time you get frustrated by the truth, you go back and repeat the same meaningless lies over and over again. And that's because even YOU don't really believe them. It's what unsure liars do.

    I don't believe you "sell your ass". For one thing, a slug like you living with that degenerate baby bro and another twisted penis licker or two in that lowlife-infested high-rise, obviously has a raunchy, scrawny ass. The rest is simple: Government assistance.

    MrV, you don't know Alan we'll enuf to be analyzing his life. You're only making dumb guesses to fulfill your roll of being an instigator.

    Nobody here or anywhere knows the limits that Alan plays since moving to LV. You people LIKE to think you do because for some reason, making him appear to be broke makes you feel better about yourselves. But your guesses aren't even bound by sensibility.

    Common sense says he plays low limits these days BECAUSE HE ISN'T WORKING FULL TIME. And contrary to the wishful scenario you, kew, redietz, and other anonymous cowards put forth, he isn't constantly throwing his retirement money into the machines. When he was making lots of money working in LA he ran back and forth to LV and Rincon frequently. And he may or may not have been a net loser. His constantly trying to keep the ex wives' lawyers from accurately knowing his net worth had to be a lively game....as was his reasons for publicly posting that he lost all the time. Would YOU be stupid enough to show $100k winners on a public forum and say you went home up $92k?

    Sure, kew has his usual little hard-on for Alan because Alan's the one who made him look like an idiotic fool over his counting two tables nonsense. But it didn't take that embarrassment to prove what EVERYONE already knew--kews a pathetic serial liar.

    This week's Singer Five:

    Balt -3 over NE
    Tenn +2 over LV
    TB -1.5 over GB
    Mia +5.5 over Buf
    Dal +2.5 over NYG

    I see gaming expert kew is showing he's a hypocrite once again. While it's nice to see he's rounding amounts won or lost (also incorrect because I forgot to say that I put and will keep putting $100 each week on my 5-teams parlay), he again ignores his constant forum BS by pretending my "short-term" results are more meaningful than what my long-term results will be.

    That's a liar for ya!

    Rob, I seem to recall Alan's son posted things at VCT that would seem to support someone in concluding Alan had a gambling problem.

    But I took it with a grain of salt: only one piece of evidence, not definitive.

    Alan admits he has decreased his bets due to having less current income: that is definitive.

    He and I are both now retired and unlike him I have increased my average bets from what they were when I was working, and to fund my gambling I have never touched my bank accounts, IRA's, mutual funds etc.; hell, I've never used an ATM in my life, nor a debit card.

    I wish Alan health, happiness and happy variance.

    We each approach and live life in our own way.

    Here's that link to my offshore contest standings.

    Offshore Contest Results (vegascasinotalk.com)

    I should probably give it its own thread here. It's an extraordinarily difficult week, so I'll probably wait until next week to do that. I may bomb out and get knocked out of contention. No sense starting a thread about losing.

    For the record, a 4-6 start for Singer isn't the end of the world. It's the end of 68% malarkey, but it's not that bad. What was wild was watching his two primetime Monday night games get torched by a 65-14 count. That was a real rarity. Or, as Fonzie would say, somebody was....

    Alan's son posted that stuff because he was having a work beef with Alan, so when Alan withheld thousands of dollars pay because of it until they finished working it out, his son got angry and chose to use lies on VCT to be vindictive. As expected, it all worked out in the end....other than the few buffoons here who continue on by saying and hoping Alan is and was some sort of "problem gambler".

    Yes everyone does things a little differently. Alan lowered his limits upon retirement, you raised yours, and I've been all over the map until I hit the $1.5mil. Now, it's no higher than dollars for me since nothing at any level would be quite as thrilling. Does he touch his savings? Kew says he does because kew's a moron who lies day and night so it'll make him feel better (imagine having a life so unsatisfying that he needs to LIE about others in order to cope with his sad life?) You don't touch yours. I may or may not touch mine as we withdraw quite a bit for all the travel we do, etc.

    Bottom line: Alan knows his stuff when he travels the forums planting ideas into the usual suspects' heads so that long discussions and ensuing arguments arise. As such, anyone who claims to know anyone else's levels of anything without actually walking in their shoes, is either guessing, presenting wishful thinking, spoofing, or outright lying.

    I'll never understand why you always bring up these "contests" you say you did well in after the games are played. Are these selective? Are you getting killed elsewhere?

    If you'll notice, I play in the same contests year after year. Go check last year's VCT thread regarding contests. Same contests. Anybody with accounts on those sites can see the standings. Year after year.

    Why do you insist on posting about things you know nothing about? What does "Are these selective?" even mean?

    And if you'll notice, I gave out a week's worth of baseball plays at VCT this year. The week finished between 7 1/2 and 8 1/2 units above .500, depending on your number for one game. And then I gave out a futures recommendation -- the Guardians at +850 and +900 to win the division.

    Basically, you don't know what you're talking about, which is nothing new. Have fun getting to .500, Rob. Enjoy the journey. And don't be shy with those parlays. Why stop at one parlay a week? Why don't you fire away with a bunch of them? You know what you're doing, right?

    Enjoy the road to 68%, oops, I mean 50. I'm glad it's in public, so you can really enjoy your public demonstration of Argentino expertise. Best of luck.

    And no quitting. Winners never quit. LOL.

    Anybody who claims to have won 68% of their games ATS in the NFL for two years, picking five games a week, is a liar, first of all and second, really a maroon for thinking he could sell that bullshit publicly.

    Some people like to pretend, I guess. Pretend they know how to gamble. Pretend they win. Pretend, pretend, pretend.

    I didn't expect to hit a nerve, and even then, you deflected away from the question.

    I'll spell it out for you: you tell people about successful contests and results/standings in the past. So explain how anyone knows you haven't experienced five times that in losing contests, tournaments, picks etc. within the same timeframes.

    You like to pound your chest--Bidenesque. You look lost whenever you try to criticize others who do things differently than you. Don't like parlays? Maybe because you're not very good at them? I'm probably over $40k ahead net on the very few I've ever bet. I got real lucky once, and I'll go to the grave being ahead 5 figures on them.That's all it takes with disciplined gambling.

    I don't know what I'm doing? Do you?

    Here's a suggestion. Learn to read. If they're the same contests year after year, then you're not cherry-picking results.

    I mean, really. Learn to read. Check the VCT contest threads from last year and previous years.

    I don't mean to be harsh, but you are a clearcut fraud. Why don't you just be a man and state clearly that you lied regarding your 68% nonsense for two years at the LVA forum? Just state that you lied.

    There's no LVA posts adding up a 68% Rob Singer record for two years picking five games a week in the NFL, against the spread. You never did that. You said you did. You lied. Just spell it out for the forum readers how you were misrepresenting yourself and scamming them regarding your history.

    The annual published "Tipsters or Gypsters?" in Las Vegas didn't allow multiple realities. They published one reality, year after year. The Wise Guys Contest was one reality, year after year, for 30 years.

    In the real world of handicapping, you don't get to spout that you hit 68% ATS in the NFL for two years. That's a crock. That's like counting 10 tables simultaneously. It's a joke. Only you didn't realize what a joke it was when you posted it here in black and white. That's how blitheringly stupid you are.

    Welcome to reality Mr. Singer. Enjoy the ride. Go get that 68%, baby. Or 50. Whatever works.
