IMO, this site has become more of a "Picks" site than a "Selection" site lately. "Pick" to me implies luck......pick a card.....any card. I am also guilty of it occasionally, as I don't often write-up football and I certainly wouldn't attempt an NBA summary....LOL
There are a lot of these posts recently that convolute the actual content of Pregame. There are many posters "picking" and not showing any type of record at all. It is not a "picking" contest, folks! This is detrimental in my humble opinion. It takes a minute a day to keep a record and can obviously be very beneficial, especially to new members. There are also crazy amounts being "bet" which undermines credibility. I may be wrong, but I had ONE 7 unit play this season. Are others that much better than me? Do they have that much more money than me? Is it just extremely poor Bankroll Management on their part or are these "wagers" indeed real?
As far as Forum Ettiquette, new members should sit back, relax and offer up their opinions. You will be noticed quickly with insightful and informative postings. Do not slam others plays, but offer up sound disagreement.....this is very beneficial and, speaking for myself, always welcome. We are not playing against one another and this seems to have been forgotten at times. We are all in a partnership to beat "The Man". Get 'em, Pregamers!
