With 0:01 left in the game, yes. Take the knee, end the game, seal the win. No need to tack on extra points there, especially if that happens in a game where we're only up by 4 or something and don't want to risk a crazy fumble return for a TD.

What I'm confused about is why that happened after the 3rd down play started with 0:38 left on the clock. We took a knee on that play too, and the clock should've been able to run down to 0:00 without needing to take another snap. Based on prior experience, I know for a fact that you can run off up to 0:47 between snaps, so the kneel play on 3rd down should've been the last play of the game.

Ah well. It is what it is.


I don't think that is remotely true, you can easily have 0:47 pass between play 1 start and play 2 finish, sure, but not between them.

So the house cleared a little money in the first go round. Here's what each person has left. I talked to the loan shark & I went ahead and replenished those that went broke in our first week. Their bets now only pay off 3x. And since we are resetting once the regular season rolls, the house gave everyone else another $100. Just so PLAYMAKERS doesn't have this preseason title locked up.

Here's your cash. Anybody new can jump in with $100.

Participants
Reddogrw $125 (6x) - $125 on Hurricanes, Insanity, KC
Kenshinzen $150 (6x) $100 on Insanity, HAMMERS & Cheeseheads
Fred Ex $150 (6x) $100 on Hurricanes, Gofers, Kangaroos
xxflip $100 (3x) $100 on WAR HAMMER, Houston Hurricanes, Gridiron Grit
PLAYMAKERS $740 (6x)
ND Roughneck $100 (3x)
Gambler072 $100 (3x)
jmarter $150 (6x)
TJ Spikes $150 (6x) - $150 on Hurricanes, STALINGRAD, NO Kangaroos
PaulDixon186 $100 (6x) - $100 on Hurricanes, Ho Chi Mean & Gofers

Same game, need to pick a 3 team parlay based on the lines below.

Brew Crew (-50) vs LA Express

we start at zero when the regular season starts, so why save $$$?

you're right but want to be cautious and don't spend everything at once. If you don't control yourself when doesn't matter when it matters probably will be too late.

Plus don't know how this is going, I'm not a gambler and trying to learn how to bet. Don't understand all these minus, participate for fun.

I'm in the same boat as you.

I'm guessing the - means the team will have to win by at least that margin.

Yes. So if line is Chaos vs NO Kangaroos (-17), you have two options:

Pick the Kangaroos and they have to win by more than 17.
Pick the Chaos and you win as long as they lose by less than 17 (or win outright).

For the regular season suggestion box: make the spreads have a .5--that way no push. Like Chaos vs NO Kangaroos (-16.5), requires 3 scores, or 17.5 requires 3 TDs


$150 Hurricanes, STALINGRAD, NO Kangaroos
