Naw, you didn't make a mistake. That guy was a JOKE.
Nice pics (africa), thanks for sharing. Looks like you had great company too
As most of you guys know, I love smack talk and will defend the Redskins as much as possible...
But to disrespect the game and its history is just stupid. The other Chiefs fans (GoChiefs and ChiefsGirl ? ? ) have seemed like honest fans of their teams and true fans of the game. People like this just irritate me.
haha damn my typing to fast and not thinking
They played in 1967 and 1970 winning in 1970
Hey, I was in the general vicinity.
There is no way that guy was 35+ acting like that.
Me too, that cat was off the hook...
was it 35? I thought it was 3+5
You could tell he was just a kid..
Hell has frozen over. GO SKINSANDTERPS!
That's not "sound" math, it's misguided math. Just because you can multiply 3x3x3 doesn't mean you're actually figuring out the odds of them being wrong about this game. What you did is calculate the odds that one (or all) of them would be wrong about any three games. But see, in this case, all three are picking ONE game, and they're picking the same team to win. So the odds of them all being wrong (based on their prior accuracy) is simply the average of the odds of each one being wrong. If you found 10 prognosticators who each had 66.67 percent accuracy, and they all picked Team A over Team B in a pick'em game, the odds that all 10 would be wrong is 33.33 percent (if one is wrong, they're all wrong). If you had 10,000 of the same prognosticators, the odds still would be 33.33 percent. The odds don't change just because there's more of them -- they're still picking only one game.
I find so few people appreciate mathematics like I do
My best math 8+22+88 = 3
Nice!!! I like that, very creative and true...
I guess we'll see what happens tomorrow.
I have a bad feeling about this game. However-in wk 5, ONLY Matt Mosley(among 1000's of pundits) predicted we would beat the Iggles.
That reminds me of during the 95 year a fan held up a sign 8+22=30 I always thought that was cool.
congrats, you beat a Pat team, less than 80% healthy
losing to 8-2 and 7-4 teams, respectively, is bad?
name the last bad team, we've lost too
you'll have to go back to week 5, while we only have to go back 3 weeks to see your loss against a bad team...
so you admit to BSing and trolling? nice
being that Denver is an AFC team, and not NFC, I find that extremely hard to believe
we lost a tough, fought out game, against one of the league's premier teams, in fact, if our kicker doesn't blow his only chip-shot...game over, we win, and you have nothing to say...
btw, I don't believe in coulda, shoulda, woulda, but we came this close to beating Denver, so how exactly is that any indication of playoff success or failure?
I'm actually not breaking a sweat, making you look a fool
