    Now I am reading about how, and I am a relative newbie here, I need to post more to earn my keep. Christ, I don't live here. I contribute only when i feel I have something of value to add. There simply is not a set number of worthy picks every week to guarantee a certain number of posts, in my opinion. I have learned a lot over the 35 years I have been handicapping sports. One of the main things I have learned is that you have to be patient and pick your spots. Going willy nilly with numerous picks every day is a sure fire way to kill your bankroll. Patience, control, not chasing. These are VERY important skills to have if you actually want to make money. If you are not a "Pro", people are all over your shit. You become a "Pro" and you ain't contributing enough. Yeah, I had a good football season and won some dough with BTP, but other than that I have earned only a couple of Subway gift cards. That is "scamming SBR"? Breaking the bank? I don't get it. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. Jeepers!

    Hey you hate the word "racist" and you used the word "racist" in your post so you are
    a mendacious "racist word user" who should be blocked by SBR from ever getting into
    a "racist" discussion on the use of the word "racist".

    Cannot imagine the level of status that our Diamond Pros will have in the gambling world. Gonna be unreal.

    In the works with several LV properties for special promos and VIP status for the elite few who gain Diamond status.

    basically I'll be allowed to put 10 posters per month on the miserable user status


    When classed as miserable, a member suffers ;

    1. Slow response (time delay) on every page (20 to 60 seconds default).
    2. A chance they will get the "server busy" message (50% by default).
    3. A chance that no search facilities will be available (75% by default).
    4. A chance they will get redirected to another preset page (25% & homepage by default).
    5. A chance they will simply get a blank page (25% by default).
    6. Post flood limit increased by a defined factor (10 times by default).
    7. If they get past all this okay, then they will be served up their proper page
    so...normal non-pro treatment then?

    Just because you capped the same picks as the Prick doesn't mean you can't still bet these picks on your real books with real money.. I know I did all year and could care less if the Prick blocked my picks on the contest play..

    Thor do you not bet real money with sportsbooks? If so then I understand your beef...

    I just wish the Prick was a football capping stud and hit all 5 picks every week, that way I could tail him on his picks and win every week with him.. He stunk it up all season long and there was no way I was gonna tail his picks..
    Lol wtf are u talking about. When did I ever say I couldn't bet real money on a Pick just because Prick took it in a contest lol.

    I love coming in this thread and reading all the guys actually taking this shit seriously, getting all bent out of shape, while others around them continue to fire out joke after joke. The first clue should have been seeing JJ's name under the thread title.

Very similar to the exclusive bird verified users get on Twitter.

    We will definitely have future bashes. No question.

    Since there gonna be an option of upgrading 2 level will there a conversely be an option of downgrading levels as well?

    Can sbr posters have the option of going from non pro to say I dunno points stiff or brokk dikk status and have sbr pay them the costs associated in an inverse proportion to what the other 2 proposed upgrades would cost?

    Perks could include benefits such as getting banned for 24 hours every 5 posts in 1 day for said members

    I would be back posting more and starting threads
    if the upgrade included being able to ban or not allow certain people
    to post hating comments on a thread you start.
