    So there won;t be any big NFL contests like the pick 5 or totals contest? That sucks.

    If any of you guys want to form our own group and go somewhere else or run it oursleves, please PM me and maybe we can get something set up between us all. Only problem will be the scoring as JOH does such a great job organizing that....Maybe we can hire him if we run it ourselves? I like the contest format as it gives you some entertainment without having to make plays at a book.

    Let me know and maybe we can keep this group along with some others together for monthly contests.

    how about move it all (the paid contests) to another forum totally if they dont want us here?

    we have some great things and private forums for inter poster agreed to wagers ( invite only ) at TGF for example.

    contests have higher fee than pay back for JOH (if hes interested in that money supply still)

    great month Livin the Life enjoy the prize!



    hope we can do more of these.

    Its too bad that we did not all think to put in some back up scenario for the poster post up contest money to be available no matter what. Life happens and now due to those serious life issues of contest mods and coordinators, some valid frustrated winners and no back up plans and all the drama forum owners seems like they will shut down attempts to have great post up contests like this, ones that worked well for 20+ years.

    we shall see see see

    Congrats to Livin the Family Life!, who after finishing runner-up to trytrytry last month, turned the tables and got the best of his nemesis this time to bring home the Winner Take All pot of $1350 for February. He built a seemingly comfortable lead and sat on it, waiting to see who would make a late run. trytrytry made one last ditch effort on the final day but the odds gods were not in his favor even if he had swept the board. Going 3-0 would have left him a mere $22 short but still made it interesting. Just want to thank LTFL for his generosity here, a gesture above and beyond what I expected.

    So, as I said earlier, and unfortunate as it is, our monthly post up contests here at the RX have come to an abrupt end. Rest assured, not my decision and I will miss helping you guys out with the grading and moderating of these contests. We had a great fraternity here who competed every day and had a good time doing it. Keep your eyes peeled for what's in store in the near future. Good luck to all.

    Nice job LTFL! Solid money management and picking. Its not all about picking winners in these things I have found. Have to have discipline and patience. A gamblers ego and attitdue can get in the way. (should have backed off hockey myself during the nba all star break! But the more I lose the more determined i get to beat that sport! Thats why vegas has big hotels.)

    Anyway, hope to see some other options on contests pop up soon. Thanks for grading JOH. Always a tough job but you do it better than anyone.

    Thanks JOH, try & woodee! Had there been a few bigger dogs yesterday it would’ve gotten interesting for sure TRY. And WOODEE great run on nba, hopefully you made out nice betting on all those winners at least. Looks like nothing will come together in time for March, lets keep our fingers crossed for a march madness contest of some sorts!

    First, official congrats to LTFL. Great job holding off some tough competitors.

    Second, JOH if we were to run our own contest between posters could you grade it regularly for 10%?

    We could have LTFL hold the money. Didn't you do that for us in the recent past, LTFL?

    If we are looking for a forum type place/message board, I think I know somewhere that would allow us to do it there if we kept the same type of format that JOH used before with the google forms etc.

    Let me know and I can check it out. I have been a regular there for years and think the onwer may be open to it. Plus we may be able to get a few more guys to play from that community.
    I don't know if I can post another forum name here but the initials are BW.

    Id def be in, let me know if its a go or not. If it is we can probably still get something up for march, start it around the 10th and just cut down the plays from 75 to 60. Or something like that
