So far it's not been an issue at all but with a new site we are playing at were taking things one step at a time. It's a level playing field for all in the contest. Not sure why you're concerned after you already made it clear you were not playing though. Let alone your reason being you made 40% of all your profits in the 1st and last few weeks of the season then proceeded in your own pick thread to be in the negative that first week or 10 days. You also never showed that in any contests in the past so I know that was all bs from the get-go. If your not interested in playing nobody's losing any sleep over that. At least be honest with yourself and the rest of us.
Looks like a couple of mother "Puckers" had a really big skate (5-1) & ( 10 & 3 ) last night;
more like reincarnation from red to green for the reverse drop.
In hiccup mode, one new mutt was up to some old favourite tricks.
Yet,only one statue remains in the grey zone.
Wouldn't be surprised to see a few more wild rides before the month is done.

Quick reply and observation. They have a lot of very good young talent most thought would take a while longer to come together. The Sedin twins retired and most expected far less and this kid from Sweden is playing out of his mind and carrying the team and the rest are gaining confidence by the day. That youthful energy can go a long way sometimes and it appears you got on board at maybe the wrong time. Even the coach is only in his 2nd season. Without looking it up they may be the youngest team in the league. Odds are this bubble bursts soon [they're in 1st place!] but many thought that of Vegas last year too so......Tough spot. Cool sounding contest though. Can you elaborate on more of the details involved?
So you have a choice to bet on or against them 50 times throughout the year and so far you've been going against? If true and you are me in this spot, the minute you jump on that train they start pounding sand! lol.
Man did the past week's Betts not Suck (15-2) !
Mookie climbed up 10 "spotts"
We won't be hearing much from PDrop as only 2 pushes remain to made up for him to reach his 200 plays.
"Suck's" cousin, "Puck", leads the field after leaving a little on the table this past stretch.
A better week to all -
Till next time.
Mookie Betts goes B2B andgrabs another weekly leader feather ( spending 21 games for 611 points
whereas Bimmer and TriTip, in a more economical sense, came close with a combined total of 17 picks
were 4 picks short of Bett's total picked games..
In the overall it's PuckH holding on with only 27 more plays to make.
Something tells me the leader will be passed well before this contest
finishes the backstretch.

A trio of 75%-80% numbers in the weekly top 5. Helps the cause.
Four entrants emerged from the red negs to join the green ranks this past week.
Two of the top 4 overall are holding fort with a 66%+ mark in the overall standings.
Keep rolling and avoid the potholes.
( I listened to my Habs beat Chicago today over the net from "The Land Way Down Under".
Hoping that I don't suffer terribly without NHL TV feed.
The downfall of avoiding the Great White North. )

Watched my Habs get shredded by Minni this week only to reboot themselves and take down Ottawa 5-2 again.
Thanks to "Tunnel Bear", I can hide my IP and I watch online as if I was somewhere back home.
A whole lot of shuffling going on this past week:
The Shill turns it all around and then some, going from -630 to +604 ! Ye'ouch.
Slots # 2-4 gained an average of about a 100 pts/day each.
On the seasonal front:
Bet sucks it up and raises his bottom line by 37%+.
Puck H is holding onto his 18 remaining plays as tight as he would with pocket aces.
Bimmer tiptoes into 3rd spot banking an overall >70% mark
Puck feels the drop in temperature
and JD pulls up into G1+ zone Bushay in full control ofthe Grey Zone
with 28 Reds rounding out the field.

Actually, the funny part is you crying and not joining this year cause the contest started 4 days after the season started claiming you make some godly amount of your yearly profits during this time period then proceed to post your plays during that time and losing units. lol. That's what's funny to me. Or finally showing a profit and bumping threads but quiet while in the black. So again let me ask you, what's so funny about me promoting this contest i've ran for 5 years and being too busy to play this year? What a dumb bump but I guess getting out of the red makes one talkative. lol.
The funny part is that an entry called Bettman Sucks is winning your contest
I don't know about the way you quantify winning, but for me it's the bottom line at the end of the season. It's been a challenging year for sure, but I am in black(ish) each month of the season so far. I bump my thread when in the red, I bump my thread while in the black, but no matter if in the red or black I am always talkative.

The fact you're aware of that tells me you're following the contest closer than I am. I honestly look about twice a month. It's all automated now which means you can't cry to the contest coordinator when things don't go your way. I think the only edge you have is playing props and don't they limit you if you're winning those? I'm guessing you're wife works and you pay nothing for health care in Canada cept your prescriptions. You won this contest the year the goalie rules changed and won how many units playing the Grand Salami over that year? and weren't a factor other than that including dead last one year. No props for you to pad your stats and you want nothing to do with this contest but use a bs excuse you make all your money the first and last week of the season. I have all our records and went back and checked and that was all bs like I thought. The idea all along was a true handicapping contest to see who had real skills. I'd be surprised to learn you can make a living on just hockey but you seem to do ok in Soccer which I don't follow.
And I'm still waiting for why it's funny I hype this contest but decided to skip it this year. Actually last year too after making 20-40 plays I knew my heart wasn't in it.
I do feel bad Bettman stole you're game right out from under you though and took it up many levels. That's got to eat at your craw on the daily. I'm sure I'd hate the guy too but the numbers don't lie that's for sure. Longest tenured and most successful commissioner in all of sports for a reason. Imagine that, a kid from Arizona more than likely the next Maple Leafs captain and Golden boy. That won't happen if someone other than Gary's in charge. No one can argue with that. Good luck with your plays. A little more transparency wouldn't hurt.
Good to see you're concerned about my welfare... but don't be, I've never taken a prescription drug my whole life. My wife works, and I work. And I win at hockey. That seems to bother you for some reason. If a contest is your way of measuring winning talent so be it. I just find it questionable that you're pushing this contest on multiple sites, collect the money, make the rules (and not even follow them) and won't even bother to put your money in play. The contest is great, I check in often, I am always looking to learn from better handicappers and there are a couple of good ones in there. The part that bothered me is pulling the contest away from EOG and hosting it on a rival site and I mentioned that right from the start.
You have all the contest stats, why don't you check back and see how many units I cleared on the salami the year that I won the contest. Where I am at, they ask how much you won, now what wager you won it on, if the book puts it up, I'm betting it. True, sometimes it feels like stealing because the numbers are so bad, but it is what it is and no matter how you imply it, the limits are big enough for a 1% bankroll bet. Remember this the rest of your gambling life, the smaller the niche, the bigger the edge.
Hockey was not and is not my game. I grew up on soccer, in fact I didn't even watch an NHL game before I had my first serious drink. But it is a great game and I enjoy it, both watching and betting on it. I am gonna say this once, hope you hear it and stop wasting your time typing that drivel every time we have an argument. I give absolutely zero fucks about Bettman's actions, one way or another. I am Leafs fan and don't care if a player comes from Kiev, Kingman, Kingston, Katowice, Karlsruhe, Krems, Kriens, Kutna Hora or Kanata, as long as they can play they are good to go in my opinion.
Finally, mocking my claim about first and last week of the season being big money makers shows significant pettiness on your behalf. After the first week of the season I was in fact 13-8 +2.77 units. If you do a bit of math, double that up to account for the last week of the season and multiply by 2.5 (40%) that would be close to 14 units (13.85 to be precise). While that is not the goal this season, it is very much different from your claim here:
Actually, the funny part is you crying and not joining this year cause the contest started 4 days after the season started claiming you make some godly amount of your yearly profits during this time period then proceed to post your plays during that time and losing units. lol. That's what's funny to me.
