    LOL. So my thread on this forum titled "Dan Druff's NFL Mastery" didn't sufficiently highlight his NFL start? I'll try to say something stronger than that. My bad.

    Dan actually took a loss on a game he should have pushed, so I am telling people his record is really better than it appears.

    Coach, in case you have any interest, Dan is not doing what Singer is claiming he can do. There are two huge, very obvious differences. Now since nobody is paying me for a seminar, let's see if you can hazard a guess as to the two fundamental differences between what Dan is doing and what Singer is doing.

    I'll give coach a month to figure out the two differences. If he doesn't, I'll explain it here.

    And coach, if you want to take a crack at that $499 versus you signing a dollar bill with your real name and "to the real winner" in the event Singer wins 68% ATS picking five NFL sides per week, you're welcome to take my money. But I need to know your name first so I can verify that the signed dollar isn't a fake.

    Don't thank me. I love giving away $499 in chunks.

    My name is on my drivers license, which is in my pocket.

    If you need it, then come meet me and take it from me.

    You have my permission to bring your film crew to document the encounter...no pre-interviews required.

    Not to get Socratic on you, coach, but I believe KewlJ meant this forum. "Here" refers to this forum. If you want to go using your own definitions of what constitutes "here," you are certainly entitled to do so. Be my guest. Personally, I suggest "here" could apply to your head space. Nobody mentioned Dan Druff in your head space, ergo we are all at fault for not keeping you apprised.

    "Here" refers to this thread. This is the current operative thread on this forum regarding NFL handicapping.

    If you posted something about Druff in another thread, then I missed it...because you were hiding it somewhere else, that's not here.

    But that doesn't change the fact that Druff is doing, and has done something, that you claimed could not be done.

    Coach, you're usually not this mentally sloppy. I guess the disparity between what you think you know about sports handicapping and what I know is something I don't usually appreciate. You seem to be a tad out of your depth.

    First, Dan is not doing something I claimed could not be done. I suggest you learn to read. If you can't read, and you don't understand anything about sports handicapping, then why are you opining?

    As I said, I stated that what Singer is claiming to have done at the LVA forum, which is five NFL sides ATS each week of the season for two years, winning 68% of them ATS, could not, and has not ever publicly, been done. And he will not do it. He will not do it for a single season. I placed the odds at his doing it conservatively at 3000-1. I already posted that. That's why I offered him 499-1 with the dollar bet, which you are welcome to share. Now doing it for two years, as he claimed -- LOL. He didn't do it.

    And obviously, if you saw anything remotely resembling it on the LVA forum, you'd be citing it here.

    In addition, what Dan is doing is not what Singer claims to have done, and if you don't get the massive differences, I'm not really into teaching remedial reading. Figure it out, dude. I'll give you a month, then I'll write up a coach belly remedial reading report.

    It should literally take you about 15 seconds to see what the differences are. Holy hell, man. Why do you insert your opinions when you have literally no idea what you're looking at?

    I already posted that I hit 66.7% ATS in the NFL one year, which was monitored and published at season's end. What I did is not what Singer is claiming to have done. It's not even in the same ballpark.

    Figure it out.

    A couple of additional notes:

    1) I placed the Dan Druff announcement where I thought it should be -- in the sports and sports betting section. I think forum management would agree with me. I considered posting it in this thread, but I honestly thought it would be mean-spirited to announce Druff killing it ATS to start the season in the same thread where Singer was struggling (he was 4-6 ATS at the time).

    2) What Dan is doing is not what Singer claims to have done. But even if what he is doing WAS EXACTLY what Singer claims to have done, Druff's 20-event run has no real bearing on Singer's claims of a 180-event run. Coach has this odd idea that because someone did something for 20 events, then doing it for 180 events is not a big deal. He basically tries to ignore probability. Now sports handicapping is a game of opinion, not pure probability, that much is true. But doing something for 180 events is still much, much different from doing it for 20 events. If you take coach's reasoning one step further, you can make the case that if you win one game, there's no reason you can't win all 180. That idea is not much different from the idea that if you do something for 20 events, it can be done for 180. This kind of non-probabilistic thinking might be comforting for lifetime losing gamblers. It gives them eternal optimism that anything can be done. It shuts no doors. They hang onto the idea that whatever happened in the past, they can recoup all those losses going forward.

    If people want to believe this magical stuff, more power to them.

    Again with the "I did this spectacular thing or that spectacular thing in the past" with no support, no evidence, no references, and NO SENSE.

    You expose yourself more and more with every defensive post.

    It's abundantly clear that all redietz' scrambling around about the Dan Druff results have been earthshaken by the trend I'm creating towards hitting my minimum 68%ATS goal this NFL regular season. Had I been in the 40%-50% range right now, you'd be seeing a WHOLE OTHER bunch of weirdness from redietz....as well as more "dumb as a bag of rocks" comments by kew.

    At the end of the 18th week, I will prove to be a better NFL game handicapper than all these mysterious contests, tournaments, and claims posted by red himself!

    And no one will need a special secret password to access the record and results.

    Actually, the NFL standings wherein I hit 66.6% for the season were published in "Tipsters or Gypsters?" I have a copy lying about somewhere. I didn't even post those standings at VCT when I posted pics of "Tipsters or Gypsters?" standings because it was only 37 or 38 games. I was 24-12-1 or 24-12-2 for the season. I can post it here when I get time. I believe it was 1988, and I finished second in NFL percentage that season in "Tipsters or Gypsters?"

    For those interested in the man who published "Tipsters or Gypsters?" here is a link to Tipsters or Gypsters? (vegascasinotalk.com). Post #7 is a photo of a San Fran Chronicle article about Mike McCusker.

    Singer can take me up on my $499 to one signed dollar wager regarding his five NFL sides per week for the season winning 68% ATS. Easy money, baby. You're hot. Come and get it.

    You'd have been better off not saying a word. All you did was confirm your same nonsense about there being "something in the distant, unsupportable past" where you say you did this, that, or the other thing.

    You would have had more credibility on this if you had said "hey gang!...my record from 30-40 years ago was explicitly provided in my infamous PR Pkg. that I sent to Alan a number of years ago that he chose not to embarrass me by posting any of it".

    Please......

    Question for you Redeitz. I wagered on the Mets game today at a Stations casino. The game is now rained out and rescheduled tomorrow. Is the bet a no action and refunded or does it just revert to tomorrow's game?

    My online sportsbook would revert to tomorrow's game but I have a feeling brink and mortar sportsbook just refund the wager although I see no info on it posted online

    You're a pro's pro kew.

    Let's see....if I had bet SF and the lights didn't work for tonight's football game so it had to be postponed until tomorrow, I wonder if my bet would be refunded :)

    I am not a professional sports bettor. I bet sports as entertainment. That is why I am asked someone who might know and that obviously isn't you.

    I have since found the rules of Station Casinos sports bets which stipulate the game must be played on the date on the ticket or it is a "no action" and refunded. This is what I thought. AND this is contradictory to the online sportsbooks that I usually wager at, where games postponed, but made up within 48 hours still are valid bets. THAT is why I asked someone who would know. Idiot!

    Singer don't you ever get tired of looking like a complete idiot?

    Thank you redietz. I liked the pitching matchup scheduled for today, in a must game for the Mets. But it sounds like the Mets have given up their slim hopes of winning the division (2 games back with 3 games to play) and as a wildcard will begin the wildcard series Saturday and now may be re-arranging their pitching rotation, for that series so the pitching matchup scheduled for today, might not be the pitching matchup in the make-up game tomorrow. That was my concern.

    Of course, Singer had to jump in with his usual Singer stupidity, talking about lights not working at a football game.o_O.

    I had to jump in to make you be seen as the fool you really are when it comes to anything gambling. What's the matter--you couldn't find the answer in any of those books you plagiarize from? :)

    BTW--notice how red said it "should" be. WTF--you mean the man with the "pristine reputation" isn't able to commit to an answer in sports betting??

    The difference between Mr. Singer and myself regarding the "unsupportable past" is that I have copies of publications in which my record appeared. These publications were read by hundreds, if not thousands, of people. And since I have copies, I could post photos of the pages detailing the handicappers' records, including mine.

    Whereas The 68% ATS Man claims he managed it for two years on LVA's forums, only there's no evidence of any such thing.

    Again, it's this odd need to project his lying onto other people that makes him such a curious subject. He has no corroboration, so he attacks others' corroboration. The thing about corroboration, though, is that it actually exists in the real world. If someone provides a publication with a name and record in print, that's corroboration. If Singer makes claims without posts backing up his wild claims, that's just unsubstantiated nonsense.

    Another example, I just had a short non-fiction story published in a book. The story details how I got into sports gambling in the first place. Every detail in the story can be corroborated because people witnessed the events and those people are still alive. The locations are real and events in the story actually happened. Whereas for Singer's double up bug story, nothing can be corroborated. No other person can verify where he was or what he did or if any single aspect of it is true.

    I'll pitch the book once again, as it's a fine collection of coming-of-age automobile stories. Check it out.

    Since sports books span the online world, Native American locations, and many different states, there will be a wide range of potential tweaks to standard rules. "Should be" refers to the standard practices and rules in the vast majority of sports books.

    Pretending to be expert about things at which one isn't expert is the province of narcissists and idiots. I'm no expert on rule tweaks available to sports books depending on venue. I've never bet in Montana or Oklahoma or in person in Costa Rica or in every single online shop in the world, of which there are hundreds. Therefore, I don't commit to absolutely being certain about rules in all of them.

    I think Mr. Singer is just being prissy because had he played my lineup instead of his for his "Singer Five," he would have...wait for it...won his five-team parlay. LOL.

    And that's a fact. Rob, all you had to do was bet the teams where I agreed with you, and then either cancel the one I didn't or bet my side, and the parlay was yours. Bummer, dude.

    It's really pretty funny when you think about it. Rob has a really good day. I have a better one regarding the five games he chose, but he goes with his Bears over my Giants, and it costs him the five-team parlay. Hilarious. It's beautiful, really.
