I did not intimate that you had missed a week "on purpose". I did not for a moment suggest you would do anything to win my Title. It never entered my head that you would do either of those things.
The game is Pick-Um. How can 67-23 be ahead of 72-31 at picking-Um. All I pointed out is that it doesn't make sense. I wasn't complaining. I have been complimented on my mid-week contributions by the thread master.
The players in the NFL play to win. We all expect them to at least. A game involving the NFL should be played to win. Tico said he intended "whupping my ass". And I praised him for doing so.
It's anti-American to be playing for fun.
Now calm down eh? Your indignation should be directed at yourself for missing the week. Nobody else missed. You're the odd man out. Copying coin-toss would have landed you on 74-29 and that can be done in less than a minute if you had been pressed for time when you made your other Thursday posts.
You are threatening to spoil the game because anybody who wins my title this year will have a hollow victory if you take your ball home.
I only entered the game in the first place to gain a better understanding of American football and American culture. Suggesting improving tweaks to the game is not demanding that they are adopted. That's what drives capitalism and Science.
I am well aware that the patriotic loyalty of the other players will inhibit them from coming in on the side of a ******* arsehole Limey. It's a cross I have to bear.
I have no intention of apologising or pleading with you. You owe it to yourself to stay in the game.
Most of us took a bit of a beating on last week's results and you didn't. I don't think you should stay in the No1 spot. You belong with the others on 67 correct picks. It was a personal foul.
