In response to CHAMPSXLVIII's comment:
What was the bet
To be at least at 25 million under the cap to compete with us at the start of FA on March 12th, 2013.
He came on here and said the Jets would be easily in competition with us in FA "30 million under the cap". We are, at the time, 26 million. So, he chose "30 million because it was the next level of millions above us. I knew it could not happen and he was using the Jets Cap GEek site as his source. Once, I knew that, I knew his numbers were way off, so I set him up with ease. He walked right into the trap again. lol
That caught my eye, I knew it ws fraudulent, so I challenged him. He then backpedaled, with 99% of the board calling him on it, by saying "20-30 million" which would mean to the average person, at least "25 million".
So, I caved and gave it to him at 25 million. At best, 48 hours after FA opened the Jets were only 22 million under, which still did not cut the parameters I conceded to.
By 12 AM, on March 12th or by mid morning of March 12th, mid day, etc, for a full 24 hours, the Jets not only hadn't signed anyone in FA, they were still trimming contracts that weekend into the beginning of FA, as I predicted.
They weren't ready with cap room cleared to compete like most teams in FA.
That was the whole point of the bet! He took it, lost and then tried to spin it somehow he did win, but it was painfully obvious he did not win.
At least a dozen impartial people came in and told him he lost and was a slimy, pathetic loser for not only trying to change the original parameters, but to not accept final defeat when it was clear the Jets could not sign anyone at the opening bell.
His punishment was to start a thread admitting defeat and to leave the board. He's never done it.
IN fact, with our first bet where he lost on the Buttfumble game, he never started the thread to admit defeat, the fat, bald loser just went on some vacation with his loser self.
hahahaha I think 10 out of 10 Adverage People would have to agree that between $20 Mil and $30 Mil is $20Mil and one Cent to $30 Mil. Unless he stated Exactly Between $20 and $30 Mil then you are right and it's $25 MIl.
