    I was just over in the general discussion area of another site, and saw as someone's .sig a picture that had once been atop ESPN right after last season's loss to scUM. A specific pic that I hate, of Shane Olivea covering his facemask with his hands in defeat, with a blurry background of cavorting weasels.

    It seems this poster lost a bet to a scUM poster we all know too well, and it seems he had taken it upon himself to bet something that would inflict more punishment on others in that forum than it would himself. A big blue or yellow M, or some Michigan smack is one thing. Having to see one of our guys suffering defeat to our biggest rivals is another.

    So just for the record, no one make the mistake of having to rub such a pic in everyone's faces over here as the result of a bet with a weasel. :wink: Because if you don't take it upon yourself not to post while you're stuck with something so annoying as a .sig, then someone else might make that call for you.

    Um, I thought the reasonable thing to do was not post for the duration of the "payment" period, so others don't have to see that crap. Seems like that poster is actually MORE active now that he's forced to display that garbage.

    I rarely read over there any more but I did see where someone on the pay board asked that dude if he could at least not post that sig on the pay board since Bret wouldn't be able to see his posts on there. He refused. That's all I need to know about the guy.

    I got served
    The reason I have Michigan sporting all over my posts is I got served by BrettGoBlue. Brett came over to the hoops form and was claiming he would bet anything on the Michigan hoops team downing Northwestern during their Senior Day. Brett doesn't strike as a trash talker kinda cocky but more subtle in his arrogance. I thought the Wildcats would win and I could get him to post with Buckeye sig pic and avatar for a week. Low and behold Northwestern does the job and now I'm sporting the Maize and Blue for a week

    What REALLY bugs me is that he was betting on Northwestern ... FREAKING NORTHWESTERN.

    lol, I was joking a bit. But to be honest, if I never see that pic of Olivea again, then that's more than fine by me.

    Can you ban anyone dumb enough to do that here? I think that banning for a period of time exactly equal to the duration of their bet would teach them well. :wink:

    BB: Hopefully we'll be able to keep the amount of riff-raff to an absolute minimum on this board, essentially eliminating any possibilities of bone-headed bets.
