After four weeks of betting with imaginary money only one of our five gamblers is in the black. Is it Colin, Reidy, Scott, Snyder or Spano? How bad off are the others?

The fabulously remodeled Boone's Tavern at Downing and Evans is THE place to catch all NFL games - but ESPECIALLY on Monday Nights. Boone's offers awesome specials and Peyton Manning jersey giveaways every Monday during football season. AND at half time of any MNF game that preceeds a  Denver home game they also have a drawing for a pair of tickets to that upcoming home game. SO go watch the Chiefs embarrass themselves TONIGHT and get in the hunt for tickets to Sunday's Arizona @ Denver tilt. AND suppport a sponsor that supports our content.

Our intreped bettors have been given $10,000 imaginary dollars each with which to gamble this NFL season. Each week they must pony up at least 10% but no more than 50% of their bankrolls. Each was profitable in week three. Can their success carry over to this week?  Here's how they wagered.

Is fantasy football a crap shoot (actually statistically good) or like roulette (spin the wheel and good luck)? WE DISCUSS.

Near misses in drafting, is daily fantasy really gambling and John's theory on running back proves true based on the lastest stats.

Then we talk trades: the strategy, philosophy and why this is the time of year for them. 

You've listened to the experts this week tell you who to play, now listen to us tell you HOW to play. Deep.

As Seen on TV: Stephen A Smith - repugnant asshole

Written by Thursday, 25 September 2014 13:01

"Did you notice the Stephen A. Smith Oberto Beef Jerky ads have started up again? I guess his ridiculous views on women and violence weren't enough to scare off the Oberto people, so one of the most repugnant assholes in sports media is back hawking dried beef."

After starting the season off losing money quickly, our five imaginary sports bettors enjoyed more success in week three - and our contest has a new leader.

The Broncos played a great game on Sunday. Well, a great quarter, anyway, versus their newest rivals, the Seattle Seahawks. Relive a modern classic of a game through the Tweets of media types and fouth-mouthed fans alike.  Our apologies for the blurriness. We're working on it.

You might want wins, but I want tacos

Written by Monday, 22 September 2014 07:02

"The low point of this season's taco craze was July offering up a paltry three days of Tacos. Coincidentally this was around the time when most fans pushed the eject button on the team. I know I did."

And suddenly it's week three!

Our five intrepid bettors have each been given an imaginary $10,000 with which to bet lines and over / unders all NFL season long. So far none of them has set the world on fire and most of them have been taxed pretty badly. There are a number of intersting match ups on the board. Here's how the fellahs wagered for week three.

I wasn't listening to the Press Box show on Mile High Sports radio this morning as I normally do for one really simple reason: the signal was down when I tried to tune the station in. It seems to happen about once a month in the morning that MHS' signal will be nothing but static. I guess I missed out on the real static, though. Once the signal returned Press Box co-host Oren Lomena said "Denver's not a good sports town, it's a bandwagon sports town."

I know trolling and that's some good trolling.

Not surprisingly, Lomena took a beating on Twitter by 50 or so not-so-happy Denver fans. Personally, I think Denver is a great sports town. But I can see where Lomena was coming from. We tend to be front-runners where every team but the Broncos is concerned. But who can blame us. Denver is a beatiful place and we have lots to do here. Teams kind of have to "earn" good attendence. This isn't some filthy East Coast city where people will show up to watch a team like the Knicks just because there's nothing better to do. We will respond to success.

A bandwagon sports town? That would be Seattle, Mr. Lomena. But nice job firing up Broncos Country.
