Is it against the rules of the forum to start a betting pool? I'm not talking about real money. I have a rule written in stone to not gamble for money but let's say a token bet of 1000 credits on the Seahawks?

Note that I don't know almost anything about American Football, I'm just going by the logos :D

Yeah, you can totally "bet" your credits. I don't see why not.
Nice, I was asking because it's betting and so could be seen as twisting the purpose of the forum. That's why I stressed the credits only part.

So organizing a pool here?

Any Broncos fans want to step up to the mark? Rules are simple, place your bet on your team and by the end of the Super Bowl the opposite bets will be divided evenly:

SeaHawks:
João Ribeiro 1000

Broncos:

i'd bet 1000 credits that the winner will win by 10 points.

I have this problem that I hate both the Broncos and the Seahawks because I remember back when both teams were part of the AFC West (and therefore enemies of my favorite team, although not nearly as hated as the Raiders).

It's just 1000 credits :) I'm trying to get everyone addicted to betting their credits so i can then get "richer" with other bets! It's a shark scheme :D
No love for Oakland?

I'm officially the worlds worst gambler - any bet I make is guaranteed to lose! I do quite enjoy it though, so as soon as, erm, let's say, the World Cup starts, I'll be more than willing to give a load of credits away :)

No one is ever going to beat @Danica when it comes to credits, anyway. She gets more in interest than most people even have in total!

She is the Credit Queen!

You can read, you can post, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, diggin' the credit queen

Friday night and the lights are low
Looking out for the place to go
Where they read the right books, getting in the swing
You come in to look for a king
Any farm boy could be that guy
Night is young and the fantasy's high
With a bit of slaying, everything is fine
You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance...

You are the credit queen, young and sweet, only seventeen
Credit queen, feel the sting from a javelin
You can read, you can post, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, diggin' the credit queen

You're a teaser, you turn 'em on
Leave them burning and then you're gone
Looking out for another, anyone will do
You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance...

You are the credit queen, young and sweet, only seventeen
Credit queen, feel the beat from the tambourine
You can read, you can post, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, diggin' the credit queen

I try to avoid ABBA, when possible. But I have heard that song. And now it is stuck in my head. Thanks. Thanks a lot.

There was something in the air that night, the stars were bright, Burrito
They were shining there for you and me for liberty, Burrito
Though we never thought that we could lose, there's no regret
If I had to do the same again, I would my friend, Burrito

four best teams to be left standing the Packers
I am a fan. My bro stayed here for a month in the lead up to the play offs (i think thats what you call them). he made me watch the Lombadi doc, lectured me on community ownership, showed me pics of the town and made me watch all the games. But the real reason, I like green and cheese hats look hilarious.

I will bet 1000 credits Seahawks will win (they have green too)

I also have no idea how i get so many credits but now i have my own song and i LOVE that ahah. I also do know sneaky's song Fernandoooo

ohh, yes they are a great team for many a reason.
on that note, My dads family was several generations in Wisconsin, near Madison, I have a lot of relatives who went to the Ice Bowl, my dad has shares in the team, I possess my own cheese Hat, and from age 8 I wasn't allowed in the house unless I cheered for The Packers.
yeah, thats my team.

OHH YEAH, I think its against the law for me to cheer for the Cowboys....EVER!

Seahawks to win.

I'll put up 1 million credits to be divided amongst the winners as well.
