    Singer can post away. I'll check in with updates to the contests I'm in every month or so. Hopefully Singer grinds out a full season on public display.

    Just be careful when he starts touting parlays as his catch-up mechanism. If you're betting his games, don't bet parlays. If you're betting against his games -- Ozzy, this means you -- don't parlay against them, either. I know you almost won this week with a parlay against him. But parlays are dumb bets.

    And finally, Rob is correct in one sense. I have not reported the TopBet NFL Pick 'Em Contest for previous years. Until this year, they sponsored just a Survivor Contest, not a Pick 'Em. But this year they added an NFL Pick 'Em Contest. They have around 1300 entrants.

    Good handicapping, folks. And unless you're getting special odds or a special deal to use promo money, don't bet parlays. If anyone wants to send Rob some encouraging notes, contact me and I'll provide his address. He might need a fan club as the season wears on.

    More deflection. There are far more available contests and tournaments available than the few you cherry-picked to showcase. How do you fare on those? And because you sell picks you use that as a cover for not posting any of them BEFORE the games are played.

    You're lying when you claim I didn't attain 68%. And your hard-on over parlays is silly. I bet for fun and not to satisfy some strange sports betting neurosis like you do all the time. Parlays are just another low-risk sports bet to me. Very easily done online in Az. these days. I picked up over $8000 profit last year with all the sign up bonuses they threw at us last year. Kew thinks $260 is a lot of bread :)

    So let me get this straight. You're saying that, somehow, I'm in gazillions of competitions, but I feature only those each year in which I do well, and those happen to be the same ones each year. And I do that after a couple of weeks because I just happen to know I'll keep doing well in some contests while sucking in others? How does that work? I'm psychic? LOL.

    I report after a few weeks that I'm doing well, in the same ones each year mind you, and then people can follow me all year long. Despite doing poorly in all of those I haven't reported after two weeks, I somehow continue to do well the rest of the season in those I do mention while, what, continuing to do badly in the myriad others?

    And despite the contests being all pretty similar, somehow each year I do well in the same ones while bombing out in ones I never mention. And I somehow know I'll keep doing well in the ones I do mention, because I clue people in after two weeks. And this is all because I can foretell the future? I suck at handicapping, but I somehow know in advance which contests in which I'll do well?

    Do you have any idea how ridiculous you sound? I just happen to know, in advance, which contests out of an array I'll do well in, and those happen to be the same ones each year, year after year.

    And I'm lying when I say you didn't "attain 68%" picking five NFL games per week ATS for two years? Sure I am.

    Go get 'em, Rob. Let's see you grind through the season. Put that Argentino skill on display for all to see.

    That's the thing, Rob. It's a little tougher when you can't just make stuff up and post it as if it happened. It's a little, teensy tiny bit tougher when you actually have to do it.

    Just do it, Rob. Show 'em how smart you are.

    You're dancing again. You obviously play far more contests than the usual suspects'. You're addicted to sports betting just like all the other "handicappers" who need to sell picks to make whatever kind of living that is. So you jump on as many of these contests as you possibly can. Saying you do "well" in the same ones every year means nothing when you don't say a word about your picks and why you picked them up front. For all anyone knows, you could be buying THOSE picks yourself.

    It's always the same BS with you. Never a thing up front, yet for some odd reason you need a bunch of lowly forums slugs to worship you via the "trust me" & "nothing's available about it on the Internet but Gypsters and Hipsters proves I'm da man from 40 years ago" routes. It all adds up to a very good chance of your being nothing but another one of those obscure sports betting frauds who need other people's money to get by. And if you've paid attention to VCT, I'm not the only one who has that opinion of you. No wonder you bounce around the forums. Make sure to wear your mask.

    But I get why you have such a personal interest in MY picks. It's almost worth it to watch you keep coming apart at the seams over the mere POSSIBILITY that I might attain 68%--or horror of horrors, something close to it!

    That's likely why Billy Walters hired me in 2002. Makes sense. He just doesn't know any better. Probably got my name out of a gumball machine.

    Now let me get your logic correct, here. Tell me if I'm wrong. I enter gazillions of contests, and the fact that I keep doing well in the same ones whose standings are available to any site members means I'm cherry picking my results. And the fact that these are the same contests year after year is irrelevant. And the fact I report results after two weeks also means I'm cherry-picking results. So I should therefore fall immediately out of contention in the upcoming weeks because I cherry picked results and have no actual skill.

    Sounds about right.

    Well, I should be falling out of contention pretty damned fast, then. I guess we'll see.

    Meanwhile, the fact that Argentino is losing money based on his own tally is, he says, meaningless. Because he can afford it. Very cool. Keep chugging along, Rob. Parlays are the way to go, baby.

    Have fun in the handicapping limelight. Enjoy the burn.

    You just made my point--which is very embarrassing for you.

    So you report your results AFTER the games are played in the contests you claim to have done well on. Please splain why you never post your picks ON THESE SAME CONTESTS before the games are played! You know what that means? Yup--you wouldn't need to be lying your way thru your so-called "expertise in sports betting" right now. And you wouldn't have to keep on getting humiliated

    That's just a link to what you reported on VCT, it's not a link to contest results posted by whoever runs the contests.

    It's not clear that any other members consider your reportings to be truthful.

    Is there any way to follow the contests at the sites you included without opening an account at those sites?

    You need a loan, coach? If you send me your address and a promise to open accounts, I'll ship you $50 for each site. With the caveat that you accurately report the standings each week.

    I prefer that you meet me in person and hand me cash.

    Or, open the accounts in my name, and then we can work out the logistics of how I can log in.

    I promise to accurately report the standings if you do.

    Right. Except there are 272 games, for example, in an NFL season, and I just reported on results after two weeks. So there are 240 games left for people to follow how I do. In the case of Race to the Super Bowl, there are also multiple NFL totals every week, so more like 330 games left. And I play and report on basically the same contests every year.

    So let me get this straight. People can follow how I do every week for the season, but that's not evidence of anything?

    Okay, if you say so.

    Any other words of wisdom from "The 68% Man?"

    No coach, give me your name and your address, and I'll send you a check. What are you scared of?

    Otherwise, pick up your own tab. Open your own accounts. You're a big boy.

    That's correct, because nobody is following how you do, so there's no evidence except for your own reports.

    And that's because you will not provide the evidence.

    I promise to report the truth.

    Open "coach belly" accounts, provide login information, and we go.

    Just provide a name and address, and I'll send a check. I'll even include a copy of the book with my short non-fiction story in it. The book is called Driving Southern. Nice collection of coming-of-age automobile stories.

    Meanwhile, coach, buddy, pal, what's your take on these 68% claims by Mr. Singer? Are you of the opinion that he (Option A) actually hit 68%, picking five NFL ATS for two years? Or do you think Option B, he's lying.

    What is it coach, Option A or Option B?

    LOL.

    Answer the question with Option A or Option B, and I'll respond to your posts. Don't answer it, and I won't.

    Have a good one, coach!

    Send the links to the sites.

    To be clear, you are willing to pay me $50 per site to open an account on each of these sites,
    as long as I agree to post your contest results, on a weekly basis, here on this forum?

    As I said, Option A or Option B, coach, choose one. Let's put that Socratic method of yours to good use.

    On record, do you think Singer (Option A) won 68% vs. the spread picking five NFL games for two years, as he stated on this site? Or is he (Option B) a liar?

    Answer the question or you get zero responses from me going forward.

    I won't be visiting Tennessee until late December.

    But you can open the accounts in my name, pay the required fee, and send me the login info.

    Either that, or meet me for a swimming lesson at your convenience.
