    Enough with the threads that claim victory ten minutes into a game

    So annoying, Steelers/Ravens is just a prime example.

    Good thread. I've always assumed those who boast about their play up by two or so scores are going for a reverse jinx, or don't have more than $5 on the line. It's the NFL and anything can happen.

    90% of the non pro's on here probably bet 1.00 a game. that's why the pro's should have a different section. let the riff raff post in another section

    Anything can happen in any sport. The worst is when someone cries about a backdoor or a "horrible beat," when it simply wasn't.

    Anyone who does this should be shot and/or banned. It is just a way for them to go back later and claim they were on the right side of the game to begin with.
