I never thought there would be a consolation to losing money. I was wrong.
I had my second-best year in terms of picking NFL games this past season. I needed this because I had my worst year ever in 2012. I lost a chunk of money, but I don't mind too much because A) I won way more in the past, B) I never bet anything I can afford to lose, C) I had fun watching football in the process, and D) I received tons of hate mail for my poor selections.
Hate mail may not seem like a beneficial consolation prize, but trust me, it is. It provided me with great writing material on my NFL Picks pages. I recently browsed through all of my picks pages and collected all of the hate mail I posted throughout the entire football season. I copied and pasted it into a Word doc and then transferred it all over to this page. So, I'm sharing it with you because I've been too busy writing stuff up for the NFL Draft.
So here it is - the second half of every single piece of hate mail I received in 2012. The hate mail is in italics (unless it's a screenshot), and my responses are right beneath each of them. Go here for Part 1 of the Hate Mail.
HATE MAIL: Another week, another stack of hate mails. I only saw one on my picks page:
Mario megelini is Walters fake name, I'm not an American this is my sucks language burning pretty sure u made up this account and writing bunch Of BS pretending to be an idiot, walt anyone who has community sense understand that u r just doing this for entertainment, I followed your Philly, Washington, and Dallas picks today and sadly went 0-3. I don't like to be negative but u suck and when criticism is earned I'll tell, for years I been following u, but this week I had enough I'll bet all games against ufrom now on, u keep finding excuses why u have terrible picks and I personally think u just flip a coin with tour picks because whatever u had going before 2011 isn't working anymore
Why'd you follow some picks and not the others? Had you bet the Dolphins, Raiders and Colts, you would've been 3-3 - an even .500, which would coincide with my coin-flipping strategy!
"Ugh, I can't believe I'm ranking the 49ers No. 6. Alex Smith sucks and the defense isn't as good as it was last year because of issues in the secondary." Its excellent and well thought out commentary like this that reminds me that this site is a joke. It "behooves me" why I or anyone else is here.
It behooves me that you hate my power rankings, but it also behooves me that you're posting comments on the site and adding to the page view totals.
Packgirls at #2 lololol dude, such horrible rankings. A week ago, you said the 9ers haven't beaten anyone good, yet you have GB ranked 2nd and say they should be 6-1. Last time I checked the 9ers beat the Packgirls at Lambeau fairly easily. May I say hypocrit?
May you spell hypocrite? And way to reference something in Week 1. I mean, I could just point to the Vikings crushing the 49ers, so that must mean Minnesota is better than San Francisco. But then the Buccaneers beat the Vikings, which means Tampa Bay is better than both Minnesota and San Francisco. But then the Saints beat the Bucs, and the Chiefs beat the Saints, so that means Kansas City is the best team in the NFL!
F*CKIN POS WROTE A GOTDAM NOVEL APOLOGIZING MAKING EXCUSES FOR THE DETOILET PUSSIES, BUT THE BUM SACK OF GARBAGE HAS NOTHING TO SAY ABOUT THE ALMIGHTY, SUPERIOR BEARS. AS I SAID WHEN ITS ALL SAID AND DONE, YOU W-I-L-L BE FORCED TO BOW TO THE CHI BEARS, YOU LOWLIFE FANBOI B1TCHES. WHOEVER RUNS THIS SH1T SITE, ALL YOUR MOTHERS EAT SH1T. GET YOUR ACT RIGHT, RESPECT YOUR SUPERIORS, THE BEARS, AND MAYBE WE'LL STOP SH1TTING IN YOUR MOTHERS MOUTHS. BEARDOWN ON ALL YOU B1TCHES
How does the "peanut butter" you scooped out of your buttocks taste?
At any rate, I think I�m going to stop it for now. I�ve already reached 6,000 words in this document, so I�m going to post the second half of the 2012 Hate Mail next week.
1. Hate Mail of 2012 � Part 2
Last week, I posted a ton of hate mail that I received over this entire football season. The entire hate mail document was 12,000 words, so I decided to split it into two.
Here�s the second part of Hate Mail of 2012:
This is why you suck at handicapping games, Walt. Your entire piece about the Broncos-Bengals game polishes Denver and trashes Cincinnati... yet you're laying a unit on the Bengals lol.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, I dropped my pick to zero units. So I don't completely suck at handicapping, OK?
Good job on that Bears/Titans write-up. 17-16 Bears loss is totally similar to the 51-20 drubbing that occurred this afternoon. C'mon Walt you're practically worthless. And your jokes kinda suck these days.
Umm... no. I was right about the game. Take away the blocked punt, three fumbles, the pick-six and the Devin Hester punt return, and the score would have been 17-16. Oh, and my mom reads this Web site and she told me that my jokes are awesome, so you're wrong!
I should start a pick em website. Walter is knowsvery little about The NFL. I read the Bears Titans story of his and thought this guy is totally clueless. What a joke of a website. I picked the bears because the titans have no way of matching up with the position matchups. Walter... go do something else and save your time.
I would follow your advice and do something else, but I'm intrigued by this "Bears Titans story" business. I had no idea I wrote a story about the game. Perhaps I should focus on writing fewer stories and more game previews.
Your website has to be the elcerontic Swiss army knife for this topic.
An elcerontic knife? Sounds kinky.
YOU WILL LOOK EXTRA RETARDED W-H-E-N THE BEARS WIN THE WHOLE THING. AS I SAID, YOU WILL BOW TO THE SUPERIORITY OF THE CHI BEARS. 6 ABOUT TO BE 7-1, WITH AN OFFENSE STILL LEARNING TO GEL. WHAT A LUXURY, TO BE SO SUPERIOR. HIGH CEILING BEARS, YOU B1TCHES, BUT YOU CAN GO AHEAD AND KEEP GOBBLING THE GIANTS WHO BARELY SQUEAKED BY DALLAS (WHOM THE BEARS THRASHED). YOU TARDS AT WALTERSOCCER (AGAIN, YOU DONT HAVE THE CRED TO BE LABELED "FOOTBALL") WILL BE HUMBLED AND HUMILIATED FOR YOUR ANAL-YSIS. BEARDOWN ON ALL YOU H0MOS, THE WORLD CLASS CITY OF CHI WILL TAKE THEIR RESPECT BACK FROM YOU OUT OF TOWN BLOWHARDS.
I wonder if this guy's keyboard gets messed up from all of the saliva and foam that drips out of his mouth as he's slamming his fists on his keyboard. And what the hell is up with separating the letters in "w-h-e-n?" I could understand if he did that with the words "retarded" or "win" but "when?"
MORE DOUBLE STANDARD HYPOCRISY FROM THE CLOWNS AT WALTERSOCCER, WHO KNOW D1CK ABOUT REAL FOOTBALL. BEARDOWN ALL DAY
I love how this raging lunatic needed two posts to get his point across.
(Twitter) why did u have them covering tonight you moron. RT No way can #Jaguars expect fans to buy tickets in 2013 if Blaine Gabbert's still QB.
Uhh... obviously because I'm an idiot who likes to pick terrible teams to cover. Duh.
i felt alot better about this picks before walter gave them out, he is a mess in nba . #waltersucks
To tell you the truth, I also felt better about them before I posted them on this site. #yesireallydosuck
i almost wanna bet against every one of walters early picks .. he makes no sense
And you no longer have any cents. Get it? Sense, cents? Ha!
Walt sucks balls.
So? Lots of awesome people have sucked balls over the years. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Walt quote "3. The Eagles will be completely focused for this game. " LOL. Wow..what a dumb Dumb.
Umm... what? I was right. The Eagles were definitely focused. That's why Andy Reid kept LeSean McCoy on the field down 25 with 1:45 remaining. Focus.
Thank you, Walt, for convincing me to bet on a horrible team on the road with a QB making his first career start vs. a team off a bye. Time to throw your naked Andy Reid poster away and ban yourself from predicting ANY of Eagle games for the rest of the year.
OK, I won't predict any more Eagle games, but I am NOT throwing away my cherished naked Andy Reid poster. He is too damn sexy.
I give credit to Walt for having guts, but I think he's gonna be taken to the cleaners this week ... too many fades of the public. Oh, he'll hit a couple, but I can't see he'll pick up more than 6 wins this week. But he's gutsy. GLTA
Thanks. Several people called me gutless this past week, so this made me feel better.
Hey Walt, Why did you charge yourself -110 for a correct pick on the over/under in the Buffalo game?...btw, you had 0 units on it anyway. Dummy
Thanks for the heads up. I was wondering why I wasn't docked $110 in my sportsbook account.
Here are two long hate mails that were actually sent to my inbox:
So happy about that. Here's the second long hate mail:
I would like to use this email to tell you why your picks suck with a capital SUCK. You get a lot of negative feedback and you always have a rebuttal for people�s attacks; but that�s just you not taking constructive criticism well. Lets start with your so-called analysis. You take about four paragraphs per game to break down your analysis, and when youre done, your pick is always for the team that you denigrated throughout your entire tirade. Is this for dramatic effect after the drumroll stops drumming?
In any event, this is why your picks SUCK:
1. Your trend data is completely meaningless and SUCKS. To say that a team coming off a bye, playing against a team with a winning record on a Thursday night when its raining outside a domed stadium and three chearleaders are injured with toe turf blah blah blah is complete horseshit. These trends mean absolutely nothing, youre not swaying my opinion with this crap.
2. Every single game you talk about Media Overreaction. Sure the media sways a line a few points here and there. So what! They are reacting for a reason. If nothing changed from week to week, there would be nothing to react to, and lines could be established at the beginning of the season for every single game. Take the Ravens/Steelers matchup this week and your crappy analysis for instance. Why the hell would I take the Steelers without Roethlisberger under center? Because the Media (over)reacted to him being out, and the Ravens who would�ve been an underdog in Pittsburgh are now a favorite. Of course the Ravens are a favorite. They are a solid team with a premiere QB, and the Steeler�s premiere QB is out. Take the Ravens minus the points and give all your followers something to win money on.
3. You always talk about how teams that are blown out play hard the following week because they are embarrassed of their loss. Teams don�t play based on emotion; they play based on skill. These aren�t a bunch of women running around with tampon strings hanging between their legs. So the Raiders are going to beat the Saints this week because they were blown out last week and they don�t want to be embarrassed? The Raiders SUCK almost as bad as your analysis. They will never contain Brees, and yes, as you stated, Brees will score on every single offensive possession. How is Carson Palmer going to keep up with him? Easy answer, he wont, because he SUCKS. Come on son!
4. Your name is Walter and every Walter Ive ever met SUCKS.
In conclusion, im sure youre a Jets fan and youre a glutton for punishment, which is why you post crappy picks.
Your loyal follower and fader,
Wow, it's amazing that I suck so much that you took about a half hour out of your busy schedule to write me that e-mail. I'm so flattered.
I have two issues with your e-mail though. One, I'm not a Jets' fan. I just love Tim Tebow and cherish the ground he walks on. Two, every Walter does not suck. Do you not watch Breaking Bad? Walter White is awesome, and I am proud to share a name with him.
Walter, Long time follower, first time poster. You are 7-8 straight up this week. No offense, but that is just plain horrible. I usually don't pay attention to all the trolls on your forum, but damn... I, for one, will no longer be using this site as a reference. You really should spend more time watching football than making fake accounts on nfl.com and writing up these little stories no one cares about. I'm happy I have Philly tonight in my pool, because you picked Carolina and TBH, my mom picks better than you. I'm not even kidding. JACKIE JETS 118-55-1 keep in mind that's straight up, but still. You suck walter, and here's one less follower. Have a good life.
I'm no longer using this site as a reference either. I'll be logging on to JackieJetsFootball.com from now on.
How many games did Walt win today like 3? Fade Walt for big profits!
Hey Walturd, You ugly porcupine. Get it right. 32. Chieftopuffs, 31. bEaglekillerss, 30. Raiderettes, and 29. Panthies. Nuff said. Let's bet against this flower picking quartet and make money the rest of the year. I can't believe I followed you on these bums this past weekend. Arrgggg!!!!!
Like most degenerate ugly porcupines, I love betting on crappy teams.
Am I not allowed to express my opinions? Or should I kiss Walt's a** every time he posts something?
Yes. Continue to kiss my a**. I enjoy it.
I lost, so of course I heard from pgup9, who had his lotion and/or tissues prepared so he could whack off to my incorrect picks:
Pgup9 didn't congratulate me during my winning weeks, but that's only because his mother grounded him and didn't allow him to use the computer.
Walter you F*cking idiot, what made you pick SD for 4 units, did you even factor that Cinn needed a win to get into the playoff? *SMH* *SMH* SMFH* WHY!! WHY!! WHY!!!!
I'd offer my own response to this, but someone else answered: "Who's the idiot? You're the bigger fkn idiot that tails him, then admits it when you lose. WHY WHY WHY? No one pointed a gun to your head. Lol."
For a guy who says he's good at predicting football games, Walt is only up $190 on the year. Hope he does something else for a living.
Umm... when did I say I'm good at predicting football games? I'd say I'm very mediocre at predicting football games. And I'm not up on the year. I'm down about 1.6 grand, so get your facts right!
The only reason any one reads your website is for the trends and the draft database. It's bad enough we have to weed through your "opinions" but your attempt at comedy the past couple of years has been drudgingly bad. I typically read the Dolphins portion because that's my team and that Brady and Bunchen exchange was hard to read. I was embarrassed for you. Stick to trends and facts, it's all you're good for.
As you can see, having sand in your vag will destroy your sense of humor. To all those who have sand in their vages, I recommend this sand blower from Alibaba.com. It's as cheap as $40 apparently - well worth the investment because you'll have the sand out of your vag in no time!
NB4 you blame it on 5 picks. You are just plain horrible at handicapping. I'm making money from fading you. Here's how walt makes his picks.. Who is taking all the money? I pick the opposite team. YOUR TRASH!!!!!!!!!!!
My trash? I feel as though I do a good job of bringing in my trash cans promptly after the trash men arrive. In fact, it's one of the few things I'm good at.
Wrong again walter....a random number generator could do better than you. You are wrong so often it is sad, pathetic, and really really offensive. Why do you have a website? Seriously, what have you added to the sport? Any sport. Why do people stupidly rely on your messed up picks?? I don't know... momentum and inertia I guess. three years ago when I first started taking football seriously, I used your picks for three weeks straight..lost over $1000...now I pick on my own..not necessarily the opposite of your picks(cause that will lose you money as well as a broken clock is right twice a day) I am doing much better. Give it up...you stink.
Dude, a random number generator could do better than anyone. Do you know how awesome those things are? And I had my best year three seasons ago, so if you only lost $1,000 then, imagine how much you'd be in the hole if you followed me this year!
Yo Walter, I'm starting a new web site, can you please let those on your web site know: www.fadewalter.com!
I would, but my browser says that the server cannot be found :-(.
Hey dumba.ss...you say that Denver has nothing to worry about by barely beating a bottom feeder team yet you bash the texans for the same thing. It can't be both ways.
Umm... I had the Texans ahead of the Broncos. You are aware that No. 4 is better than No. 6, right?
The author couldn't be more wrong on Smith vs. Kaepernick. 69% of Niners fans aren't stupid. Here's 5 reasons why. 1. Smith took the Niners to the SuperBowl last year. The only reason they didn't actually get on the plane is because of 2 stupid fumbles...
I'm pretty sure there are other reasons why the 49ers didn't get on the "plane."
These power rankings are a joke. They to be based more on reputation and current wins as opposed to a total body of work for THIS season!! Laughable!!
I have no idea what this person is trying to say. Does he want my rankings based on reputation? What the hell does that mean?
"And here I thought Ditka had a stroke; not Alzheimer's." Apparently, no one remembers Vick's crime better than you, Walt. Some people hold childish grudges while some accept that he did his time and then move on. How about it?
Nope. I'll hold on to my childish grudges. Because it's fun when people respond with childish posts in my comment board.
why is eagle so low??
Some questions just cannot be answered. For instance, how did you graduate first grade?
And here's some hate mail from someone douche named Anthony Cooper:
Damn you and your "expertise" Walt. You really suck at this. I really don't understand how you could be so good at this before your website became popular. But now that you actually have a readership, you consistently lose. WTF. 3 straight losing weeks for you dude.
It's all a conspiracy. They've been keeping track of my hits, and as they've grown, they told the officials to make sure my picks don't cover.
Walterd suck! Dolphin,NO,ARZ.
In my defense, that one Miami Dolphin deserved to cover.
Walter, why do u continue Betn on suky teams??? Chiefs? Dolphins? Cardinals? Your never gona learn! Wow. I've never dogged u but dam
You mean the Chiefs, Dolphins and Cardinals, who were a combined 5-3-1 against the spread in the three weeks prior to this past Sunday?
so it seems like the only thing wAlt got correct today was Philly. everything else with any units lost. Damn walt.... u suck a** now. fade walt n win!!
Don't rob me of that Tennessee win! That prevented me from going -$1,500 or worse, so that was obviously clutch.
These are the picks and units of a losing gambler that doesnt know what hes doing any more....Eagles, Saints LMAO
You're right, I mostly don't know what I'm doing. That's why I went 1-1 with those.
Was there any point at all to the dumb make believe story between Brady, Wes and Brandon in the Rams-Bills section? any reason at all? What was the point? Great to talk about NFL suicide. About the only thing you can predict these days. Moron.
There are two points to it: 1) to give people with a sense of humor something to laugh at and 2) to give people with sand in their vag more sand in the vages.
Walter if no not win then I will lost my roof
It looks like you've already lost your brain, so a roof shouldn't seem like a big deal.
Walts sponsors are going to leave and this site will be dried up. It's all about winning Walter. Last 2 yrs you have been gawd awful. This site will be removed after this season is my guess. so for us waiters out ther...how about waiterfootball.com?
I like the sound of that. But what happens when you do well and get sponsors, and then you start sucking like me? All of the janitors reading your site will have to launch janitorfootball.com, and then the same thing will happen to them. It's a never-ending cycle.
Just wanted to see if the internet worked here. I used to be rich and happy, had a mansion and a ferrari. Now after following Walter's picks this year, I am now living in Starbucks thanks to you...great wi-fi though and the candycane lates are scrumptous...CMON man!!!
I'm glad I could help you live the dream with my crappy picks! Having great wi-fi is the key to happiness.
god you are the worst
Disagree. I think somewhere out there is someone who is even worse than I am. I truly believe that.
Just quit. Walt, you are really bad this year. Like, terribly bad. Fading your picks might actually be a good idea.
How many times have I said that this year? At least a dozen, I think!
Just wanna say thx again for the picks! Today was the most I've made fading you this year. Keep it rollin' brutha!
See? This guy has the right idea.
I hope Walt's site stays up simply for the sake of fading every pick and winning. Too bad the NFL season is almost over.
Oh, there's plenty of time to bet against me in the NBA and college basketball. The losing will never end!
Walter peeked in 2010 and it looks like he's gonna bottom out this year. He seriously can't be doing this for a living. If so, he needs to figure out a new way to make his bread. This is disgusting. Went with his Jaguars pick today cause it seems those picks really hit and even that one bombed.
See, that's the problem. I was able to peek around in 2010, but now there's nothing really to see. Funny? No? OK, sorry. But yeah, sadly, this is how I make my living. FML.
walter needs to stop. this is getting really bad. i think walter is done. sad, but reality.
You think I'm done? That's nearly the nicest thing any person I don't know has said to me in the past couple of days. You think I'm done, which means you're not completely sure if I'm done or not. That's great because there's now a chance I may not be done!
Walter sucks he got all them picks wrong.
No, no, no, no. I got the Broncos and Cardinals right. Get your facts straight.
Walt you are garbage, have you seen your overall stats the last two years????? You are worse then the secretary in my office who picks based on her lucky lotto numbers!
True. If I study just a bit harder, perhaps I can overtake her and the woman who picks teams based on her favorite colors.
Well, I personally am going to stop following Walt. Nice 3 unit rams and colts pics. Genius pic of the freaking week Waaaalt!. Done, done, done with this site. A tip of advice: Quit trying to be cute and funny and cleaver and a wanna be intellectual and start trying at being good at your job. You dont know what HELL your talking about. Well, maybe you know more than most people, but certainly not enoigh to make a career of this and waste everyones time with your opinions.
Pick of the Week? Umm... no. I lost my Pick of the Month. That's far worse. At least I know that I am cute and funny and a cleaver. It's been my dream to be a cutlery accessory.
You have Luke Joelle in this draft and then say he mayb a part of 2014 draft. Are u a Walt jr.
Hey, Walt Jr. had nothing to do with this. He gets excited sometimes, but not when he writes about Luke Joelle, whoever that may be.
SERIOUSLY 2014 Draft...I don't know whats worse the fact that you created one or that I actually looked at it. Wait I thought it would only include the players not the teams, take the teams off, you only look foolish.
So, you thought my mock draft would only include the players? So, it should go like: 1. Jadeveon Clowney. 2. Teddy Bridgewater? What fun is that?
I thought Walter mentioned this year that someone mailed him his stats on weeks 1, 16, and 17 and those were his worst overall weeks. I couldn't find it but checking his week 16s from 2008-2011 he lost money in every year. He also called Peter King a f**king idiot in week 2 for saying Greg McElroy would start multiple games. How is that turning out Walter? You make the call, but expect another losing week 16.
I think I called him a troll, but when a troll calls someone else a troll, is the first troll really a troll? Think about that.
great start to the weekend Walt. you complete jackass
Perhaps I am now an incomplete jackass after bouncing back a bit.
Dallas will not lose to the Saints and will cover....why do you do this Walt....go by each game and each year and each momentum boost...not statistics that tell u umm saint will win because they just lost....mark my words Dallas wins 31-27....Walt loses a 5 unit game AGAIN!!!!!
I have no idea what this person is trying to say. "Statistics tell u umm saintwill win because they just lost?" Did he take English classes with Emmitt Smith?
Whats all this read between the lines nonsense?? Walt put 4 units on the Lions. Why so cryptic if he meant his loyals to do otherwise? I say Walt is an idiot alcoholic or Vegas insider.
Why not both?
You are Terribbbbllleee!! No christmas presents being bought this year by any of your followers.
I have faith that my followers will find some way to save Christmas for their families this year. For instance, they can rob a liquor store. That's what I'd recommend anyway.
-400$ Walt, I know that's fake money because u ran out of dead presidents a long time ago~
Umm... no. Liquor stores can replenish money. Duh.
Here's an actual piece of hate mail I received from a "G Lanzalotto:"
Want to save money? Review this: NFL Picks (2012): 126-139-7 (-$5,000)
Or you can make money by going against me. That's why I'm here.
does anyone who comes to this website really pay attention to walt, or like me, comes to see everyone else's picks?
I don't pay attention to Walt's picks either.
haha the only funny thing on this site are the picks -- i can't tell what's worse, the sad attempt at comedy or the terrible analysis. i guess i might keep checking back for charlie's mock drafts, but anything walter types is a waste of time.
What's worse between the sad attempt at comedy or the terrible analysis? How about the sad attempt at analysis?
Walt lost his a** again.
I did for a while until I realized I left it in the bathroom.
Walt, u are truly the dumbest motherfudger ever! Ur picks are beyond horrendus and give idiots who never watched a game who try to pick games a bad name.. seriously, start flipping a coin or something, u idiot..
What do you think I've been doing? This damn coin strategy is not working.
Walter go to hell !!'n
I'd follow your first instruction, but I'm not sure what to do about this "'n" part. Confused :-(
@walter @ walter @walter @ walter @walter @ walter @walter @ walter NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER NEVER NEVER AGAIN I WILL LISTEN OR READ ON YOUR SITE!!!!!!!!!
Until you lose with my picks this upcoming week, that is.
He's currently at -1430 after the first wave of games and manged to get not one right. One thing I tend to notice is the games he feels least confident about manage to win. Saw several winners that he put 0 units on.
I got the Steelers game right. Check your facts, son.
Choke on caulk you idiot!
I can't because I have something else in my mouth. What? That's gay? I meant a Dove chocolate. Get your mind out of the gutter, sickos.
Also, pgup9 wasn't grounded this week, so he was able to go online and send me some hate mails. I, however, had the last laugh because I was able to successfully troll him:
This is the BOTTOM LINE (-$5,360)
Well, the incomplete bottom line. Because you could add my 2011 losses and say that I'm $7,000 in the hole.
And now that it's the postseason, Walt is still stuck in the shop with his football picks. Glad I faded him though. Sure hope you're around doing this next year Walt cause I can't wait to be a millionaire. Wish I would have seen this before the NFL season started.
Hey, there's always next year. Anyone who reads this Web site can just fade me and make millions. All I ask is that you pass this along to your friends.
Walt's butt must hurt as bad as RGIII's knee after today.
Actually, my butt doesn't hurt very much after a night of kielbasa man sex. You all should try it.
If you like money... Then do yourself a favor and go against Walt on his "favorite pick of the week."
Is there anyone who doesn't like money? If so, I'd like to meet them and introduce them to my Web site. They could lose money with my picks and be totally OK with it.
'I still love the Colts.' overrated team, which an inflated record from a chump schedule. You can have them. Looking forward to your rant in your recap, and seeing who you assign blame to for screwing up that pick, not just ATS, but outright. Ravens lost turnover battle, gave up more pens and penalty yardage... still won by 15. Why? Because they're the better team. Good job, rocket scientist.
Luckily for me, there were a number of people I could have blamed for my wrong pick. It was pretty easy to come up with someone to blame, so it was a good day.
Also, pgup9's mom allowed him to use the computer this week, so he sent me hate mail. I once again tried trolling him, but he didn't respond, quite possibly because his mom only gave him 30 minutes on the family PC.
Wow Walter, 0-8 last weekend lol Good Effort!!
Thanks. I think going 0-8 requires a certain level of talent. There was only a .39-percent chance I'd get all four sides and all four totals incorrect. I managed to defy the odds!
walt you butt hurt that your picks sucked (again) 0-4 this week? and the ravens have knocked off your colts and broncos back to back for your picks of the week. respect the ravens you dumb philly clown fade walt and went 4-0 this week
Once again, my butt doesn't hurt. Matt Millen's very gentle.
walter you sucks !!!
I know, but so does your grammar, so you should probably pay more attention in your sixth-grade English class.
Monkey at a typewriter>Walter
I'll take that as a compliment. Monkeys are quite the typists.
Just pick opposite of what Walter chooses and you will win!!!!!
That's what I've been saying for weeks. You're just starting to get it now?
walter is a traitor and does not deserve to follow his PAGE., YESTERDAY INCORRECT, INCORRECT, INCORRECT, INCORRECT. TODAY INCORRECT, INCORRECT, INCORRECT, INCORRECT. WTF
I don't deserve to follow my page? What? Are you sure "INCORRECT, INCORRECT, INCORRECT..." is something you don't constantly see on your high-school test?
WALTER WORKS FOR THE SPORTSBOOK, IS VERY OBVIOUS THAT DISTORTS BET. EVERITHING IS ARRANGED. SEE NEXT WEEK AND TESTED
I don't just work for a sportsbook. I work for THE sportsbook. It sounds like this guy is on to me.
I've been following you for 3 years... sadly this is the day we part ways. Your analysis is shoddy and is reflected by your ATS record this year. Best wishes.
But... but... you can make so much money betting against me. Why are you leaving now?
Umm... ad hominem, much? Just because I suck at betting football doesn't mean that I shouldn't get to voice my opinion!
Dude, it's the 21st century. Gay insults aren't cool anymore. It's actually considered quite cool to be gay now. An appropriate insult might have been "#vagsucka."
Meanwhile, a Mike K. sent this e-mail to me:
See? I'm helping people win money!
Despite all of this hate, I did receive some positive feedback. Here is one:
Also thanks to T.J. M. and others for the positive reinforcement throughout the rough year.
WOW! For a guy who has his own website (for whatever reason) that involves handicapping games,the fact that you are only betting $50 on Championship Weekend is pretty pathetic.
Face it Walt, YOU STINK.
You do not deserve to have your own website anymore. That can't be more obvious to everyone.
Yeah, I stink. I admitted as much two weeks ago when I said, "I don't know what the hell I'm doing" and "I'm at a loss. My confidence is completely shaken. Like I said, if I pick one team, I know the other will cover. I just know it."
Here's some half-fan, half-hate mail:
Walt, I'm saying this because I care and I wish to continue seeing mock drafts and jerks of the week. Stop betting the NFL. YOU F***ING SUCK AT IT. I DO NOT WANT TO SEE THAT YOU CAN'T AFFORD A DOMAIN BECAUSE YOU BLEW YOUR MONEY ON PUTTING 3 UNITS ON A LOSING TEAM.
To the first hate-mailer: That's why I went only half a unit on the Ravens in Week 20.
