Not Ranked

Here's a prop I ran across at BoDog. Will the announcers say  the word 'marijuana' during the game? Would you bet this prop? If so, YES or NO

From kick off until final whistle. Live pictures only, any taped pictures or past video does not count towards wager. Half time does not count towards wager. Must clearly say Marijuana. Book Manager's decision is final. NO OVERLIMITS

NO   -900
YES +550

It almost seems like a no-brainer to take the NO. I highly doubt with all the sub-plots, action, and things to talk about the announcers would start commenting about the recent legalization of marijuana in Colorado and Washington or its relevancy to the action on the field, but who knows?

These announcers have doubtlessly seen the wagers offered and they doubtlessly have many friends who could benefit from a quick comment in the show. Or perhaps they have been told beforehand in no uncertain terms not to mention that word.  It has been predetermined.  Also the length of the National Anthem is another wager that has been predetermined.  Ever notice how the singer goes real fast or slows it down?  These are sucker bets unless you have the insider information.

Goodell considering letting players smoke if it helps with concussions.

I thought I saw a news broadcast on the internet,yahoo i think awhile back, about buds being sold in shops in Colorado with Peyton's face on it.  It was cartoon drawing, but Manning none the less.  So.....maybe they mention it!!!???

$350 to $425 in Mississippi for medical grade, $50-$120 for dirty Mexican to mid grade quality; per Ounce

The retail price of marijuana in Colorado has doubled since Jan. 1, when the state became the first to legalize sales to anyone 21 and older. Pot for recreational use sells for an average of $400 an ounce, compared with $200 an ounce that Colorado retailers collect for medical marijuana, said Aaron Smith, executive director of the National Cannabis Industry Association, a Washington-based trade group.

In these big games the announcers rarely mention any hot-button topics. They've got plenty of other things to talk about, like up-coming shows and network promotionals.
