Time For The First Annual NFLBBB

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on January 5, 2021

The *masses* were clammoring in chat for me to get the NFL Blowout Bonaza Bet (NFLBBB) set up so this is the thread to do just that. Your task is to accurately identify the TOTAL number of points scored in the 6 NFL playoff games this weekend. Without further ado….the total points as Vegas has them currently assigned:

Colts/Bills: 51.5

Rams/Sea: 42.5

Bucs/WFT: 45.5

Ravens/Tenn: 55

Bears//Saint: 47.5

Browns/Pitt: 47

What do you get if you add all that shit up? That’s a cool 289, baby. Big Flavor already doing most of the work for you. Now, you COULD guess 289 and that would probably put you in the ballpark for the win. But that’s kind of a pussy guess to make, just giving a knowing dude head nod to the Vegas odds makers. Be your own man. Pick you own number.

But since most of the numbers will be close or semi close to 289, the TIE BREAKER is going to be how many games you get right. Don’t worry about the point spread. Just send me your TOTAL NUMBER of points for all 6 games along with the six teams you think are going to win.

If there’s a tie after that so be it. The winners will split it up. To the victor go the spoils…….

Back in the day this contest winner would be awarded a COMPUTER! But we don’t roll that way anymore with Twinfan gone and probably looking down calling me a dunderhead for not continuing his grand tradition. This contest costs $10 and it’s winner take all. You want to play for $$$$ let me know that in the email. Ten Bones. That’s two fins from where I come from. If you don’t want to play for cash you can play for fun I’m cool with that. Just indicate it in the email. I won’t collect $$$ this is on the honor system. Once we identify a winner who played for cash I’ll have all the losers (who agree to play for $) to send him $10 via paypal, zelle, whatever. DO NOT SEND ME $$$

So remember, the email to me bigflavor77@gmail.com is going to look something like this:

“yo Flavor! Hey man, thanks for keeping the blog going all these years yadda yadda, the typical message I get from you guys 🙂 …..my total point # is _________ and my 6 winners are_____ _______ _______ ______ ______ _______ and I have ten bones (two fins) and I’m lettin’ that shit ride!!!! woo hoo!!!!!”

Or, you know, construct the email however you want………

You have until kickoff of the first game Sat morning (that’s the Colts game, 10:15am PST) to get me your picks. I will send an email to my daughter shortly after I post this thread with my picks so nobody thinks I’m waiting to see what everyone else picks before guessing. The integrity of the game is paramount.

    my email to Katie was sent at 2:24pm today and I’ll re-post that along with everyone else’s picks in the thread on Sat morning

    Casali twitter thread he sent something else out asking if he should try and get Bauer to SF. Said he talks to him quite a lot.
    Interesting responses…lot of Z ain’t going there, at least not this year.

    • Flavor said, on January 5, 2021 at 3:33 pm

      more like “Bauer ain’t going there”. He’s made it clear his #1 priority is to go to a team that has a legit chance of winning that year (that’s where all his 1-year deal stuff came from)

    You may need to edit the post to say: Once we identify a winner who played for cash I’ll have all the losers (who agree to play for $) to send HER $10.
    🙂

    • Flavor said, on January 5, 2021 at 3:46 pm

      oh boy. All I had to do was to offer up a contest to get you to post at my blog? It’s been 10 years Rebecca what took you so long??>>>

      • chipower9 said, on January 6, 2021 at 9:42 am

        LOL. Welcome, Rebecca, but I sent Craig the winners and correct tie-breakers about 10 minutes ago. 😉

    End of PTI they had 2 cool anniversary items– NY legend Lou Carnesecca is 96 today and they showed clip 38 years ago today of Doctor J stealing pass from Lakers and going in for monster slam rocking ball back in right hand, as defenseless M Cooper gets out of way underneath basket.

    Are we playing Price is Right rules?

    • Flavor said, on January 5, 2021 at 5:35 pm

      What’s that? Closest to the actual number? Sure. But I am pretty sure someone is going to get it if we get 30 or so players (and I expect of those 30 many will be playing for free).

      • Flavor said, on January 5, 2021 at 5:36 pm

        I will say that if one of the freebies wins it that’s it there is no prize. It would be lame to have a freebie win it and then we go find the closest pay-play guess.

      • djloo27 said, on January 5, 2021 at 5:41 pm

        It means closest without going over..

      • djloo27 said, on January 5, 2021 at 5:42 pm

        Ban the freebies!
        Jesus, it’s $10!

      • Flavor said, on January 5, 2021 at 5:56 pm

        no. closest is closest. And now you got me wondering how many contestest Bob Barker actually fucked when the show ended. It has to be dozens right?

      • Flavor said, on January 5, 2021 at 5:57 pm

        nah, there are a few guys who I know aren’t gonna want to play for money. And besides, if you can’t beat a fucking freebie you didn’t do your homework, amirite?

  6. Flavor said, on January 5, 2021 at 5:58 pm

    so far the submissions I’ve recieved have all been for $$$$

  7. Flavor said, on January 5, 2021 at 5:58 pm

    remember, DO NOT SEND ME MONEY I don’t want to have to deal with managing that. Of course, after I win my paypal and zelle will be WIDE OPEN

  8. Flavor said, on January 6, 2021 at 8:23 am

    leaving this thread up today…..send me your NFL picks to bigflavor77@gmail.com

  9. Flavor said, on January 6, 2021 at 8:38 am

    i get it, they’re just doing something funny but I still can’t really take this chick seriously as an agent. Maybe that’s a bias of mine.

  10. chipower9 said, on January 6, 2021 at 9:31 am

    Craig – thanks for putting together the NFLBBB and thanks also to Loo for suggesting it. Fuck yeah, let’s have some Flapper fun!

    Flav – I just sent you the winner point total, and also my winners (tie-breakers), via email.

    Meanwhile…

    • willedav said, on January 6, 2021 at 10:14 am

      wow thx man. I used to know a guy in SF who did DJ work playing a blues show for local non commercial radio station. He had a recorded station ID from Mabel John, one of the Raelettes (and sister to Little Willie John).

    • Flavor said, on January 6, 2021 at 10:28 am

      Chi I’m assuming you’re playing for cash? You didn’t indicate that in the email but unless I hear otherwise I’ll assume that’s what’s up

      • chipower9 said, on January 6, 2021 at 10:43 am

        Sent you a follow-up email saying I was in for $$$. Yes, I am in to take all the money. 😉

  11. willedav said, on January 6, 2021 at 10:36 am

    Shanahan said Jags, Lions and Falcons have all requested to talk to Saleh about head coaching job. Would he take one of these?

    • Flavor said, on January 6, 2021 at 10:42 am

      his family is in Det so there’s that. Jags get Laurence but I just don’t think a situation like there, where a rebuild is happening with literally one stud piece, is a good move for any coach. Atl should give the job to the interm guy IMO, he did a great job turning them around

      • chipower9 said, on January 6, 2021 at 10:45 am

        Jags have two first rounds, two second rounds, and a third…and more. They also have the most cap space of any NFL team. Not a bad rebuild situation. If I was Saleh, I would consider the Jags long and hard.

  12. alleykat69 said, on January 6, 2021 at 11:30 am

    Urban Meyer gets the job in Jacksonville Chi, he practically has his coaching staff picked out.Jaguars want to make a bigtime splash with they’re 81m cap space..

    Some other predictions…
    Robert Saleh—-Atlanta Falcons
    Eric Bienamy —- NY Jets
    Brian Daboil —SD Chargers
    Marvin Lewis ( I can’t believe I’m saying his name)—Detroit Lions

    • chipower9 said, on January 6, 2021 at 12:42 pm

      Wasn’t saying Saleh would get the Jags job. Just that if I was him, I would definitely be interested because of the draft capital and cap space.

  13. xoot said, on January 6, 2021 at 12:46 pm

    Has GHead weighed in on the o/u game? Last I heard he was working at the USPTO, which is based in Alexandria, not D C. Seems like a wager he’d jump on.

  14. willedav said, on January 6, 2021 at 2:21 pm

    I’m sure rest of agents are right in line with Ms. Luba and awaiting some action on clients behalf. Given state of ownership and Manfred, not hard to envision conspiracy theories as to when/if offers to top FAs might materialize. ST is how far away now?

    Name dropping Haystacks . . .

    This is so cool
