Just how materialised have they turned Christmas?

Don't get me wrong I look forward to this part of the year but I also can't help but notice how insanely materialised they have made it become, Everywhere you look someone is trying to sell you something to buy as a present.

Has anyone started a business on ebay?

If so, How seriously are you running your business? Is it no more than just trying to sell some old junk in the house for a little spending money or can you actually invest big and have wholesalers providing you stock?

Black English football players/coaches slam the idea of Rooney Rule being enforced over here


I never really concerned myself with this topic before but with the talk of it coming over here, I just can't help but shake my head at this.

This is basically discrimination against discrimination, How patronising and demeaning must it feel for the Black candidate to  know you are only being interviewed because you are merely filling a quota. I'm glad those two Black players/coaches have spoken out against it, This is being pushed by the type of White people we all know and hate, The type of White people who give Blacks more reasons to be angry than they actually are, You can't get away from this subject over here now.

What's our take on this Kaci Hickox story?

There's been a lot of overreaction and unnecessary panic shown towards her in my opinion.

I'm happy Stephen Tulloch is out for the rest of the season

This is why you don't show boat, Learn to have a bit of humility, How embarrassing is it for him to have to face his family members, team mates and friends now?

I'm not buying this new wave of optimism surrounding Valencia

Tough loss on Sunday, Read the game perfectly, City danced around pretending to win the game whilst Chelsea soaked up the pressure, City made a mistake with the sending off and then Chelsea took advantage, Just didn't think Lampard would stop me winning, I should have took them on the spread. Which is exactly what i'm doing tonight. Getafe +0.5 on the handicap over Valencia, I know there's a renewed sense of optimism surrounding Valencia with the new owner and signing of Negredo but i think they are very over valued for tonights game, Until they show us they are consistent i wont be backing them away from home.

Getafe +0.5 -110 for tonights game

Chelsea might put the title race to bed on Sunday in my opinion

I mean, Just look at the odds for this game tomorrow, City are +140, Draw at +240 and Chelsea at +210, Last year City were -110 against Chelsea, That's how big of a gap Chelsea have bridged on them with the signings of Costa and Fabregas.
We all know Mourinho is a master at winning the big games but that's not the reason i will be betting Chelsea, City are having an identity crisis, Last year they were gung ho, possession based, playing high tempo football and this year they have adapted a more cautious, play on the counter attack mentality. They are not going to score as many goals as last year and are already struggling for goals. City were poor against a very mediocre Bayern side who themselves are having an identity crisis, Mind you most teams this year have changed their philosophies, Chelsea being another who have gone from being a cautious side to a very attacking side.
The odds for the title as they stand are Chelsea -138, City +333, United +900 and Arsenal are irrelevant as they don't want to win the title nor challenge, Just give them 4th and they will be happy to take part. 
Mourinho will be telling his players, Give me a win here boys and the title is ours, Forget playing for a draw and extending the title race, Let's end it here, Win today and you open up a huge gap which would require City, United having to on a 33 game winning streak and Chelsea to drop points in 4/5 games from here to the end of season which would be asking for a lot.

I have no clue about College Football, Can someone help me?

The coverage of college football over here is so poor that i haven't watched college football for about 2 years, I used to watch it but the midweek games are on very late and i make one night of the week priority to stay up late, That is TNF for the NFL. The Satuday games are surrounded by a host of soccer games which takes my attention, But having watched a few games on highlights today, I love what CFB is about. 

Can someone tell me what are the best games to watch/bet on this week? or the marquee games where there's something at stake?

Thanks in advance fellas

The Super Bowl champs open up as -5 favorites against Denver next week

It's down to -4.5 -115 now but I saw it open at -5 +100, That's roughly the same line Seattle had against Green Bay, What are the odds makers trying to say, That Denver are on a par with Green Bay this year? I know the odds don't determine which way the outcome will go but to have Seattle -4.5 against Green Bay and then -4.5 against Denver 2 weeks later is a head scratcher, I was expecting the Seahawks to be -3/3.5 max.

Interesting stuff fellas

How do double digit underdogs fare in divisional match ups?

At first i looked at the Denver v KC game and thought it's an easy cover for Denver but then i realized, The Chiefs played the Broncos close last year and if anything the spread has been inflated simply due to the Chiefs being doubted and not performing in week 1, If you were to take a double digit underdog surely it would have to be a division rival where the odds of a close game are higher.

Law enforcement official claims they sent the Ray Rice video to the NFL in April


Goodell is on the brink in my opinion, I think he is going to get fired or resign himself because this situation is getting ugly.

Surely the Patriots can't go 0-2?

After that woeful 2nd half performance against Miami, My eyes were lighting up at the thought of backing the Pats against the Vikings this week but having watched the Vikings performance in week 1 and being impressed and with it being their home opener and also being in a dome and on turf which the Pats very rarely play on, It just has me doubting myself. Then on the other hand how good is Belichick off of a defeat and how unlikely is it that the Patriots could go 0-2, I love the line i'm getting for the Pats, I'm just not sure whether the situation is right.

I don't understand why the 49ers are being underestimated

As long as they have Harbaugh as coach they will always compete as far as i am concerned, Throw into the mix the Seahawks should have a worse off season than last due to history telling us, Which easily could mean the Seahawks finish 8-8 or 9-7. So in essence the 49ers might only need 10 wins to win the division which i'm confident they can get, St Louis and Arizona should just make the numbers as per usual.

If you turn on ESPN radio or NFL network it's all doom and gloom around the 49ers, I don't understand why?

How farcical has this ice bucket challenge thing become?

It's supposed to be for charity yet all I see are egomaniacs having a good old laugh, No explanation of what the f-ck ALS is or how to donate, Let's just pour ice over ourselves, F-cking narcissist bast-ards.

Widow of lung cancer victim wins 23.6 billion in damages, Is this a positive or negative outcome?


I'll let you read the story but should we be celebrating this woman's victory over the company or is she being rewarded for something other people aren't?

How do you make money betting on baseball, I'm on the verge of throwing in the towel?

In the other big sports no matter how bad or how good you are at handicapping those sports, You can develop an idea as to what works, Yet with baseball despite my genuine interest in the sport, In the 4/5 years I've been betting on it, I'm still at square one.

Do you handicap the teams? or the pitchers? or the opposing pitchers? Which of those factors do you rely on for giving you confidence in making a bet? 

If the above questions are not relevant, I apologise, All i'm asking for is someone who is doing well betting on baseball to share their opinions on how they approach betting baseball in here.

How do you set the odds for the Germany v France game after the performances in today's matches?

When France mucked about against Nigeria and scraped through 2-0, I had the line at +125 for Germany as long as they had a routine win, Now after the average performance by the Germans i'm leaning more towards +140 Germany France +200 and the Draw +275.

Germany will be licking their lips after watching this first half LOL

The first team France have faced who aren't pathetic and they have been exposed for what we all knew they were, So much space for Nigeria to run into. It's a classic case of being a flat track bully, France will get beat easily by Germany in the next round, Assuming they can stumble past Nigeria. Germany have the better manager, better attack, slightly better defense and more experience, I was hoping France would put on a show today so i could get a better line on Germany.
