I believe someone once ran a weekly betting game here (or was it somewhere else?). If there is enough interest, I would be willing to run this game through the season. Here would be the rules:

- Everyone begins with $50,000. You may bet some, all, or none of your money each week. Your bankroll based on what you win or lose will carry over to the next week.

- Rules are simple. You win or lose the exact amount you bet on each game. A push means you keep what you bet.

- Once you go bust, you are out. I could be talked into some sort of play in contest once we lose enough people though.

- Keep all bets no smaller than $100 increments.

- All bets (including Sun/Mon night games) must be made before the earliest weekend game kickoff. If you are betting a Thursday night game, bet it before kickoff. Please try to have all of your bets in one message for easier bookkeeping.

- If you decide to change your bets during the week, please quote your old message with a new message. I will likely accrue bets during the week and will not go back to check edited posts.

If there is interest, I am happy to run this for the season. Please make your bets in the following format:

Patriots (-3) $1000
Raiders (+4.5). $3000

***These are not my bets***

Bet away!

A couple people lost their 50k bankroll already tonight.

Don't forget to make your bets by Sunday AM. If you don't play, you don't get to keep the $50,000 I have generously gifted you!

Are rebuys allowed? Lol

I am not against some sort of mulligan.

A picks contest for one of the eliminated to get back in? A $10k mercy donation if everyone else also gets the $10k?

Open to suggestions.

@Dingleberry
If teasers are allowed:
S.F. (-1.5) & LAR (-1.5) $10,000

If teasers aren't allowed I will use that 10K on the Pats and make it ($20K)

Sorry, for my sanity I have to skip the teasers. I wanted to hopefully start a new game on this board that provides such a great diversion for me from the real world. But teasers, O/U, etc I think would make it a bit too time consuming for me. If this game is somewhat popular, maybe next year we can add some more of those options.

I'll apply that extra 10k to the Pats.

Ok ok...I'll loan ya 10k with a 10% vig....juice is do weekly. Can you handle the payments?

I hope so...cause I'd hate to have to call upon my buddy @Sicilian to pay you a visit.

Leave me out of this. I'm no one's thug.

Unrelated, did you know the best way to dispose of a body is to wrap it in chain link fence and dump it in deep water? Keeps the body from floating to the top, but still allows fish and such to nibble it down over time. Just a totally random tidbit. No connection to threats against deadbeats at all...
