    We cut tebow, that sent us from 100-1 to 200-1. Sorry to tell you, but god will not be on our side this year.

    I'd say the Browns might be the team in the worst shape of all right now.

    Did you even bother to read what my post was in reply to ? Given your reply, I'd wager that you didn't.

    Those "media fools" are the ones who are writing all the stories and focusing on the "Jets circus".

    And if you don't like the blowhards on TV then here is something from people that actually have to put their money where their mouth is. The Vegas future odds for SB 2014. The livelihoods of the people that make these odds depends on being accurate:

    That's good value on the Giants at 20-1. Atlanta too.

    Good, maybe he can focus on the genocides in Africa, scumbags holding women hostage for years or other minor stuff he's been missing while hoping teblow would remain a Jet.

    And oh yeah, there are 21,000 children living in NYC homeless shelters as we read... maybe he'll have time to pick up on that one too. And now that he has free time on his hands what's god's second son doing to help with that one?

    Actually Vegas odds have little to do with who sets them.

    The odds are based upon how people bet. The odds adjust upward and downward based upon other bets. If any bets heavily skews one way they will adjust the odds to get more money on the other side. Their goal is to have the money evenly split and they take their percentage.

    So the media actually plays a large role in odds. If people believe one thing they are you going to bet that way.

    +1


    and then there are the robotic Cheater fans who have bet bundles every season since 2005 on their beloved Shats to win the Superbowl, each year at low odds

    and LOST EVERY SINGLE BET

    Donating money, raising awareness... about all I can afford. But I don't have millions and lots of time on my hands like the second son.

    More importantly, I'm sick of Teblow fanatics intimating a god would give a s**t about a football team.

    And you sir? What are you doing to fill in for a god too busy watching over teblow to address the world's problems? Out of curiosity of course.
