Why would someone bet Dolphins win on heads at 1-1 when you can just bet the Dolphins win. The odds arent correct

For FUN.

Why would I make odds 5-1 when you could just bet BOTH sides and have a guaranteed win?

Not even sure if the outcomes are correct. They may not even use actual currency.

The heads/tails part will never be announced. Only who wins the flip. Only the first two options apply.

I bet my whole stash ($500) :lol: on the Panthers as I suck at gambling and want the Phins to win it. There is not too much difference between picking 8th or 9th as we probably won't be after the same player as the Panthers, but being one pick ahead of them might help us if we trade up or down. I am starting to think we will take Courtney Upshaw of Alabama with our first pick. Bama produces players who are ready to start right away. Slick Nick gets them ready to play with the Big Boys.

I am actually hoping that Car wins the toss as picking 8th or 9th is no big difference to ourselves except in a trade-up scenario. It is more important in the fact that the flip also affects the other rounds, esp. the 2nd round. In the 2nd round, the team that wins the flip actually picks after the loser of the flip and after the Bills. If we win the flip and fall behind the Bills in the 2nd, we could lose out on a chance at Fleener or another field stretching TE as the Bills need one as well. By losing the flip we'd pick 9th and then ahead of Car and Buffalo in the 2nd.

It is a good point. Especially since CAR won't be targeting the players we'd be targeting.

Unless something ridiculous happens on draft day (eg/ Blackmon somehow dropping to 8th) then it may well be that losing the toss could turn out to be better.

If you don't root for Miami to win the coin toss you're not a real fan!

If you don't root for Miami to win the coin toss you're not a real fan!What is the point of all these meaningless coin flip wins? If we want to be a champion coin flipper we need to keep losing. Everyone knows that the only way to win is to keep losing as long as possible. Losses = automatic future wins. We need to stop being a mediocre coin flip team.

Some of you might be happy to be a year in a year out quarter flipping team, but some of us want to get back to flipping Sacagaweas.

Losses do equal future wins. Unfortunately we didn't have enough losses this season.

Therefore, we're flipping quarters.

Losses do equal future winsAsk the Rams how that has worked out the past five years......

If by future wins you mean 10-15 years down the road, then maybe you are on to something.

Losses equal future wins when a guy like Andrew Luck is coming out.

That's the kind of kid you throw a season for.

6 wins. Perfect. And you guys had so much hope. Adorable.

:lol:Hate to break it to you, but the Colts are not getting handed the Vince Lombardi Trophy on draft day. Luck might not never win a Super Bowl or is not guaranteed to even be in the league five years down the road. There is no such thing as a sure thing. Maybe he is the next John Elway or Peyton Manning. Or perhaps he is the next Ryan Leaf, no guarantees. You never throw a season.

Luck a guaranteed superstar? Adorable that you think that is guaranteed.

So losing equals winning? You're not a ***** just accurately wrong.

You are so Goddamn mad right now lol.

Never said guaranteed.

But he's worth every chance you've ever taken in this league whether he flops or not.

QB is the hardest spot to hit on and when you get the chance to hit big you take it. You take your risks. And that's how you get to be successful in life and everything else. No one ever got successful playing scared.

Accurately wrong? Pretty accurate with that 5-11 prediction wasn't I? Everyone thought I was crazy. I know what I'm talking about year in and year out. I know it rubs you the wrong way but it shouldn't.

I know it rubs you the wrong way but it shouldn't.If you are "throwing" a season, you better hope what you are getting is guaranteed. That is like me saying I am going to suck at my job, because my next job might be gold. Why waste my talents to get something that might end up sucking? Better to work hard and and make the present count then count on a flimsy future option.

Since when is 5-11 accurate? The team went 6-10, that is like if I had a lottery ticket and every number was off by one. I was close, do you think they would give me the money? lol. I guess you and I have different definitions of the word accurate. What you say doesn't rub me the wrong way, not at all. Comes across more like humor.

Let's not split hairs here. 5-11, 6-10...that's pretty accurate. Much more accurate than anyone else—especially here. I said we'd lose to Cleveland this season and we did. WV and I actually had a pretty lengthy phone conversation in August about the start of the season. We both said that we would lose the first two without question. And we both agreed that if we lost to Cleveland, we were going to be REALLY bad. And we were for the most part. We closed strong but for the most part, we were awful to watch at times. I said the lockout would hurt a lot of teams like Miami and it definitely did. Those OTA's and training camps are crucial for teams like us trying to take the next step. Don't argue that.

That job analogy is dead on. Never did I expect players to intentionally go out there and lay down for their opponents even though I said that it would have been incredibly beneficial to us had we dropped games and landed the top pick. Had we landed the top pick, my views of next season would already be bright. Andrew Luck is a kid that can flip a franchise. Won't happen over night. It won't happen in one year. But Indianapolis will prosper from all of this. And that's a crazy thought when you consider they're about to transition from one Hall of Fame QB to a kid with more potential than anyone we've seen since John Elway. Contrary to popular belief, I am not an Andrew Luck fan. I am not a fan of individual players. I'm a fan of talent and talent that can help us get to where I can't even dream of getting anymore. Andrew Luck has that kind of talent.

You can find what I say as humorous if you wish. That's fine. But I'm clearly more right than wrong. And I known you're the "glass is overflowing" kinda guy and my glass, at the moment is about 1/4 full. We're on opposite ends of the spectrum in that regard. Your issue with me is not that I'm right often times, but rather what I'm right about when it comes to the Dolphins. And believe me, no one hates it more that JCane does. But I've never been a homer. I've always been honest about what this team is. And right now this team has a long way to go so long as we keep ignoring the QB spot and not lucking out like Indianapolis has this year.

I shouldn't say that I didn't say players shouldn't throw games. I definitely said that. But I never said that I expected them to to go out there and quit.

This event is settled. I also included "Tails" and "Dolphins Win Tails" as winners. Even though there was no real heads or tails, I thought someone should win something in those categories. I consider the Dolphins tails, since their logo shows a tail. The Panthers logo is a head. So there you go.
