    As the new Tracker Forum moderator, I'd like to open things up a bit and give you posters a chance to interact by expressing any thoughts you may have, whether it be a question you might have, a suggestion on how this forum could improve, a comment on how well a poster is doing, an opinion on how things are being run here or just to raise an issue that might generate some discussion. One thing we will not tolerate is bashing or insults toward any poster who might be having a difficult time handicapping. Anyone willing to abuse this priviledge will be shown the door with no further access granted. This is simply an opportunity to become involved here without having to contribute by posting plays. This is NOT a thread to post plays. Hopefully it can become a way to spread information, gain knowledge and just give the posters a chance to mingle.

    Thanks guys and welcome!

    I would like to congratulate you on becoming the new moderator of the Tracking Forum. I know you'll do a great job for the many of us who choose to post our selections and want them tracked. Best wishes on your new endeavor.

    A reminder, as some are taking liberties...

    Plays that are acceptable:

    • Full Game Spread
    • Full Game Totals
    • Full Game Money line
    • First Half Spread
    • First Half Total
    • First Half Money Line
    • Parlays, But only up to 6 teams
    • Teasers, But only 2 and 3 teams

    Absolutely no:

    • 2nd Half plays
    • Props of any kind
    • Teasers that are more than 3 teams
    • Parlays that are more than 6 teams
    • Pleasers or other Exotics.

    When upgrading a play where the line has changed, I will grade both plays as one, but will use the new line posted when grading the play.

    So if you post Siena -4 for 2 units and decide to upgrade with Siena -3 for an additional unit, I will treat it as one play on Siena -3 for 3 units.

    When upgrading where the line has not changed, just add the units. Graded as one play.

    On the flip side, if you're looking to downgrade a play, you can't just come in and subtract units. In this case, a new play must be posted as a hedge (or opposite side) of the original. Graded as 2 separate plays.

    Thanks for your cooperation.

    Thanks guys... this'll be a challenge but I'm up for it. I may seem like an enforcer at times but bear with me. That all goes with staying organized.


    One thing that's on my mind at the moment... All plays will be assumed to be -110 odds unless otherwise noted. Please make it known in your post if odds are different. I'd prefer not to have a blanket statement at the start of your thread saying all plays are -105 or something like that since new visitors to the site may not see that. Thanks.

    Any chance of adding a column for win percentage? Perhaps following the column for Season Total.

    I was trying to include as much info as possible without having to scroll right to see everything... win% had to go.... however... I did a little finagling and managed to grant you wish... I got rid of the PUSH column YTD which I don't think is a necessity. Check it out tomorrow.

    When posting parlays, include the odds for each leg. If there's a push I have no way of figuring the reduced odds. Thanks.

    Thanks Rob... a lotta work here and yet things are kinda slow in the sports world. I may be a bit ambitious right now.... we'll see how long it lasts.

    Hey JOH
    Just saw this. Can I get involved? Where do I post picks. Do I just start a thread, title it and submit picks? Thanks.

    If you got a comment for a poster, post it here.. not in their thread. Everyone will see it here. Please stay out of any threads you did not start.

    I'm crackin' the whip.
