    Should Members Be Required To Include Records When Posting Picks?

    Should Members Be Required To Include Records When Posting Picks?

    This topic has long been debated.

    Some fellow posters believe that yes, keeping & updating records should required in picks-threads.

    Others think it's unnecessary, that posting shouldn't be considered a job, and that it's not his/her responsibility in helping determine if other posters follow him blindly or knowingly regarding their overall record.

    Both sides have valid arguments.

    I used to track & provide my record each & every day for years on the forums when posting my NBA plays. As a matter of fact as an example for those who don't include them in threads, here they are:

    2006/2007 NBA Record: 254-214-8 / +50.41 Units
    2007/2008 NBA Record: 166-143-1 / +31.32 Units
    2008/2009 NBA Record: 262-229-11 / +32.74 Units
    2009/2010 NBA Record: 289-242-8 / +96.12 Units
    2010/2011 NBA Record: 77-68-1 / -3.40 Units
    All Plays Documented On Forum



    I think that some posters feel they'll receive too much negativity if they are losing.

    It never happened to me, but I have seen many posters get critiqued for just that.

    Seeing that happen is one of the bigger reasons I stopped posting my plays.

    So since I used to post my records, I feel I have a right to an opinion on the matter, so here it is my friends:

    I would recommend posters include their records as they will earn more respect overall for doing so.

    But at the same time, i don't feel one should be required to do so & catch heat if they don't.

    Even if they aren't including their records, most members are witty enough to know if another poster is up or down.

    Lastly, let's not forget that at least they have the cajones to post plays.

    Your opinions?

    At the end of the day itís up to the better to determine if they are going to follow or fade a bet. I come on here very sparaticly, sometimes I post my picks other times I donít. I donít have a ďhard recordĒ that I keep either.

    You want to get on here and say you have a play, cool. But show me you're on it and for how much.

    I didn't think it was a big deal but I can start posting my record

    I have spreadsheets that go back years but I need to keep them confidential but I can go back to say the beginning of the year and post that to save me a lot of time and then keep track going forward

    I donít know about keeping records. I mean if someone wants to post a play here and there I think itís fine. The problem I see is when someone posts lots of plays everyday and
    starts keeping a record , only to stop record keeping when they are down and then starts a new record. ( Funnyb). It reeks of trying to get over and try to lure people in for whatever agenda.

    Since you asked , I chimed in.

    I'd rather not show amounts of the plays for reasons of security and tax law implications if that's okay

    Na. posting tickets is too extreme. I for one like to keep AMOUNTS I bet and amounts I keep offshore in general private, and I am sure many others feel the same way.

    It would be cool if SBR had a recorder for each season that kept record like the contests do but have it displayed like badges.

    there's 2 methods of tracking picks. Like I have season long threads for individual sports and all plays are tracked at 1 unit a piece.

    Then you have other guys that will be 50-200 but +100 units b/c every pick is different unit size, so there's no real validation there either.

    SBR spreadsheet is a good tool, but guys create new threads daily just for the clicks and views instead of creating season long threads to avoid tracking their records

    I post records all the time, many of which are ugly (hello NHL YTD!), it is not a big deal. But accuracy is obviously first priority. And there are no record refreshes, always post season-to-date.

    That would be nice if people did show their current and most recent betting history, or just simply better explain why they like the pick they are making in a post.. That's what I try and do.. I go the extra mile...

    I use this 5D bet contest copy and paste below as a best pick history for whom ever wants to tail me and then I also explain why I like my best pick when posting pending.. Such as this below.. These are my best picks everyday period.. I do well with them every month..

    I for one am for complete transparency. I donít post picks but if and when I start I plan on keeping all records etc up to date. It doesnít matter if posters post tickets because it changes nothing on my end if they are air betting or not.. thatís their prerogative. The viewers can use their picks to wager real funds so the picks themselves are what matters here and what people
    xhoose to do with them.

    Everyone has a losing record over time anyway so what does it matter. And tickets are relative. A 100 buck ticket to someone may be one unit and to others like lakerboy, it may be an ‘all in’ bet. So posting tickets is dumb too. I follow JJGolds daily best pick post. I won last night tailing some guy I never heard of. Everyone’s got an angle on something. Good luck boys.

    You get forum respect if you are a solid capper.. You get gratification for helping others maybe at times.. You can also grab picks and make money when other people post pending and when you double check their picks and they look good where as you'd never see that otherwise..

    There are some advantage to posting pending on this forum.. If no one ever posted pending then this would be just a social forum for gamblers.. That's no fun.. Can't make money with that...
