    Credit & Betting Meltdown Thread

    Well I've lost 2 million (credits of course) on the game tonight and I'm sure there are others that have lot their entire life savings on this game so feel free to discuss...


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

    Ditto...unless the unthinkable happens - I won't have much left. With how this one has gone, I'm ok with that.

    I am guessing a credit bonus since the boss is out of credits.

    Man I loved the outcome - it wasn't the most exciting first half but the game was great from an x's and o's standpoint.

    I didn't have a lot, just 81,000 credits on various bets, but I probably won half of them...guess we'll just have to wait and see...

    Great game, but does anyone else feel really bad for Ellis Hobbs?

    Sorry to see Ellis get burned for the winning TD though.

    Thank goodness for the halftime lines. I've almost got enough for a pony.

    Any Iowa State fan should feel bad for him, but he didn't cost them the game. THey would never have been in it without his pick in the first half or his three pass break ups...

    The way I see it, the Giants owe that victory to me, being that I put my credits on the Pats and I have lost about 14 or my last 16 bets.
