Johnny, the reason people have to hate on your picks is because when you are a broke degenerate, you get off on rooting for other people to end up as pathetic as themselves. Degens get more of a thrill losing than winning. They want to see other people fail like them and hit rock-bottom.
More than half of the losers on this site spend their lives at pawn shops, or borrowing from friends n family, burning bridges etc., and would do homosexual (Not that there's anything wrong wit it) favors if it got them a $20 10 team parlay on a sports site.
Just remember, most of these guys don't even bet, because they have nothing. When you see these losers say they are betting "big" on a game, it means they are risking a few worthless betpoints 90% of the time. Just phony touts and jerkoffs.
The guys who are firing real money don't spend their time on a site like this trying to get ppl to stroke them off.
As far as teaming up and "Breaking the Books" like you say, I have 2 words for you- Brock Landers.
Fade his picks and become a millionaire. He is the #1 gold-mine on this site. Sit back and collect like I did last year in baseball. Been counting down the days till the 2013 MLB season just cuz of him. Trust me, there is no better financial investment. Send him a xmas gift after the season's over, if you can get an address for a cardboard box under a bridge. Never seen anyone worse in my 25 years of sports-betting.
The key isn't trying to find someone who picks a lot of winners, it's finding the black cloud in life who can't pick one.
