Bengals RSW was never a official release?

I know there was discussion of how the MGM beat Cantor to releasing season win totals and they got bopped to the UNDER 7.5.

That way he can freeroll. If Bengals un7.5 wins, he can gloat about how he knew it was a horrible release, but since it will likely lose, he can say "Not an official play."

It's the same way that when he released Bodog props last year, Anthony said "These props are just suggestions" and Fezzik admitted on EOG last week the Bodog props were just recommendations, not official picks, but because he won 8 units on them he includes them in his record.

Considering Fezzik doesn't even bet some of the stuff he releases to his service and doesn't even know what picks he releases some of the time, it's possible he just forgot to give out a Bengals under. A few weeks ago John Kelly asked Fezzik for his best play of the week to give out on the radio, and Fezzik said he'd give it to JK after he released the play to his service. He then told JK Seattle was his best play of the week. EOG posters were talking about Fezzik's play of the week and I said "Did he really give out Seattle as his play of the week, he didn't release that to his service?"

A few days later, Fezzik replied "I didn't give out Seattle, I told JK he could give it out" (huh?), made up some excuse about "Sharp market forces telling him Seattle wasn't such a great play" and then he posted it to his service as his 3rd or 4th highest rated play of the week. But the simple fact was that he never gave out Seattle until several days after the EOG show, and was pretty clearly making up excuses to justify why he forgot to give it to the service. Prior to the EOG radio thing, he'd already given out a few 3 and 4 weights, so if these "sharp market forces" really existed he would have given out some play other than Seattle that he'd already released.

I tend to think 2011 is an anomaly since every other year Fezzik was tracked he may not have been a unit winner (depends who you talk to) but he was at least well above 50%+ weighted and, in 2008 and 2009, he had the long string of exceptional performances in major handicapping contests.

Perhaps there were just some factors in his life that made it difficult to stay focused this year.

No, it does not depend on who you talk to. His 2009 picks are still readily available on the LVA paid site and PC linked the forum post to every single pick. He's down over 100 units in the current LVA paid format. 2005, the last year he ran a service, was similarly brutal.

Not even close. Over his entire career of running a tout service vs WA lines, he is an overall loser, which includes his "discovery" period of 54.5% on SSB, and actually helps him because it excludes his performance on BJ21.com before Wong started SSB, which even his fanboys admitted was a small loss.

Quote:

Which is completely irrelevant to the discussion. He also apparently had a long string of exceptional performances at 1/2 NLHE that he likes to bring into the equation whenever his sports betting prowess is questioned. Dude wins the Hilton in 2009 and loses 15 units for the subscribers to his tout service despite ridiculously NWA lines, that's all you need to know.

Quote:

Unless Evita has some non-human short gestation, perhaps Fezzwick should have known he had "other factors" in the pipeline that made it absurd for him to expect to improve his performance from flipping coins to 55%, merely because he was charging $1000/year.

Regardless of how you want to spin the assertions of his net worth, either he's full of shit as to his net worth, or he's full of shit as to how much $1000/year changes his motivations to do better as a tout. The hilarious part is that even his biggest fanboys insist that his service still has value because he grandfathered people in at $200/year if they renewed quickly, which is completely dichotomous to Fezzwick's claims that the money would make him put forth an increased effort.

In any event, I hope your TV is tuned to ESPN2 tomorrow night for your game because there's going to be an interesting sign in range of a bunch of cameras.
