So, tell me again how many points were wagered in that (Australian rules football) game?mbclev wrote:It is NOT an alternate universe, bpmod! It is what I thought when I initially watched those shows in 1995, long before boards like this one came into existence, and it has been implicitly backed up by sports commentators, especially the Australian rules football commentator who mentioned Collingwood's kick that should have been called a 1-point behind rather than a 6-point goal. (He said that if Collingwood were to have won the match by six points or less, that mistake would have cost Collingwood's opponent, Geelong, the match. That has essentially been my viewpoint on J! matters like this, and none of you will ever move me from that viewpoint, and if you try to do so, I will rebut those arguments vehemently. And you'd better treat other people who have views about this similar to mine the same way you treat me; otherwise, I will say that you are practicing a double standard.)bpmod wrote:Why do you insist on trying to push your alternate universe onto us?
To the best of my knowledge (I don't follow sports), points in football, basketball, baseball, etc. are made at face value. I don't know of a game where the team can wager some or all of their points to gain (or lose) more.
ETA: Shouting NO! over and over and over is not the same as rebutting.
