    Worst SBR Jinx Of The Season

    I think this one might be the worse jinx I've seen at SBR - Louisiana Tech (+7.5) and East Carolina (+6.5) were the bets. After Q1, East Carolina was winning 10-7 and LA Tech was winning 14-3. Someone posts that the bets were looking good WHICH WAS AN OBVIOUS JINX.

    East Carolina only scored 10 points for the rest of the game, LA Tech didn't score another point. Both teams lost and both bets failed to cover.

    WHY DID THIS PERSON JINX THE GAME???

    People at SBR are not happy. Please stop jinxing games, people.

    Anyone who believes in a message board jynx really needs to get laid, like if your message somehow affected the outcome of a game hundreds of miles away

    That jinx screwed a lot of people - if you had been jinxed like that then maybe you'd think differently.

    cmon tacomax.......need to get off it bud. Whether someone made a comment or not, the outcome of the games wouldn't have changed. With as many posts as you have and as long as you've been in the community, you can't truly believe in a jinx (at least I'd like to think not)

    I can make this better for everyone. If the "Jinx" really does exist then the reverse "Jinx" must also. So...

    Everyone post in this thread on how I won't win the Lottery tonight and then when I do, I will pay everyone back their losses for this game.

    i never understood putting ur soul on the line. do u get like a 2nd life if u win? if so that would be amazing. i just hope u dont instantly die if u are losing and the final whistle goes off.

    and first born children are generally useless, no offense. they are often worse looking than later siblings and have more psychological problems.

    Jinxes are real because we all live in separate realities, like our own little universes. Some were affected, some were not.

    It's a cosmic thing.

    Nicky in your situation your jynxing a person who in then makes picks! Through your jynx your physcologically fvcking with his head which in then can lower his decision making abilities. In this case your saying a lead is good this has no effect to the team on the field.

    The jinx knows you made that post. The jinx is a complete asshole. He'll take what he can, and leave you with the leftovers. It's just like socialism.

    Maybe. If I were you I'd get some friends at ACORN, cheat on your taxes, and tell everyone you know what's best for the economy. However, you are not allowed to have any previous business experience whatsoever. That is key.

    I think anyone who was a victim of this jinx should not have to count those losses on his w-l or unit record. Thanks, Taco, for alerting us to the danger of commenting while a game is in progress.
