Using the smileys like this is about a clique is all fine but this thread has been scammed by regulars before. Whether people do/don't want escrow on x bet with y person is down to individual choice and if people don't feel comfortable then I find it hard not to respect that choice.

Yeah I know, I have said twice already I understand Bertie's decision. But I think I'm allowed to be raheem is I guess my point.

Like anyone can say whatever they want but I am me.

Sorry to get this thread sidetracked though and sorry for saying f you collectively to everyone. I am allowed to make mistakes.

Coquelin is gonna boss it this season

Re: English Football 2015/16

The level of trust in the poker community in general is a joke. If you don't know people personally, expecting them to just take your word for a season long bet without an escrow is pretty silly, and anybody who does so is just naive.

You obviously think "proving" yourself a reg by being here posting a lil while entitles you to this, and to then just basically say **** you to everyone when don't get your own way is the exact sort of character I'd have zero trust in.

Sorry for derail and don't normally do it. Just basically lol poker players (myself included) and how we conduct "business".

It's bugging me that I don't know what this mix up is because I can't tell who you are talking to. The other guy must be seriously flattered though.

Can I play? I'm not going to flounce like raheem if the thread says no but figure I've chipped in here often enough, and certainly planning on saying more when the season starts. Definitely when The Owls start dominating The Championship.

I have to warn, I will take it fairly seriously while I am still on the dole. Although I am not sure you need to be too worried as I have only cracked the top 100k once in 9 seasons because I rack a disciprine.

You basically just called me a scam artist so I say **** you and I hope you have a miserable life.

The reason why I react so strongly is cos I am with honest intentions and then I get shut down, so I just got a little hurt.

Maybe there is some naivety. I think most know the risks and just see it as a form of vig.

Re: English Football 2015/16

Start with small bets first and build a rapport and people will eventually be more open to larger bets.

It might be a good idea to not take it personally. It's not a comment on your character, it's just that you are new.

Re: English Football 2015/16

I could stop talking about this, but if you just keep bringing this up and talk **** about me, I'm gonna defend myself.

One thing I will say that I do have slightly lower social IQ so maybe that's why I actions might look suspicious? But then again maybe that's not an excuse, so forget about it in that case.

And again if you say "blaming it on social IQ, that's what a scammer would do" then again I chose my words wrong cos I'm not that good at speaking.

Re: English Football 2015/16

What about if I would just post here and not do bets except if I send in advance? Where's the angle in that? The angle is that some of you are a bunch of ******s. Not referring to Bertie.

no he never. He said you have a higher risk of being a scam artist as nobody knows you personally. Which is obviously true..

Re: English Football 2015/16

my simple criteria is "you can play if you've posted in this or any previous EPL thread prior to the comp being announced" as I feel this encourages participation from the more occasional posters while reducing the likelihood of being hustled by the PRO FANTASY FOOTBALL tossers who infiltrate every friendly comp on the net.

So yes, thechef, you are welcome sir

I asked a friend just to make sure did it come across like that. He agrees not at all. It was more just pointing out the flaws in our community and how I feel if you want to make season long bet such as this one, with somebody you don't know, you should expect an escrow to be needed.

In saying that, in my lovely fantastic life I have, which just got wished misery upon by an angry soul. They are the kind of people I would expect to scam a season long bet for sure ;-) I'll stop now. Hopefully I survive your hateful wishes.x

Yeah I know. I do have the trait of when I get mad, I just keep going and I can't stop. I just wish no-one would say mean things about me anymore.

If someone at least semi regular wants to do like a 20 dollar bet where I take Arsenal and you take maybe City or United cos they're close, let's do that bet with no escrow. 'Places higher than' season bet. But everything's fine in any case.

I guess my offer is if you take City you bet 21 dollars against my 20 for Arsenal and if you take United you bet 20 dollars against my 21.
Il take city for 21 v your 20 for Arsenal. Qtb.
