Update: I bought the keys to trade for metal. Because of the week-long trade wait thing, I don't want to buy any more keys than I already have, so I'll close the poll if one side reaches 67 bets. Thank you for understanding.

 

Update 2: As seen on the FP Blog!

 

Update 3: Poll closed. Go Hawks!!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

So this is a place where YOU can bet on who's going to win the Big Game at University of Phoenix Stadium on February 1st.

Prizes: Everyone who bets on the winning team gets one refined metal. Additionally, one person who votes for the winning team (either team) will randomly win a key instead!

Like I said in the other thread, the Patriots should win this one with ease. The Seahawks were only able to win the NFC Championship with a whole lot of luck and a little bit of BS, the Packers should have won. Plus, the Patriots absolutely demolished the Colts in the AFC Championship game. My score prediction: Patriots 35 - Seahawks 21.

 

Edit: Also, if you guys are going to go TROLOLOLOLOLOL SPORTS, then I'd honestly rather not see posts like that. Vote for a team and leave it at that, but there's no point in mocking people's interests, even if you are only joking. puh.gif

 

Edit #2: @Dattix, it's superbowl XLIX, not XLVX. ptongue.gif

Pats haven't won a super bowl since before the last time they were caught cheating. It looks like they found a creative way to remain the most scumbag team in the league with that whole deflated balls controversy. Regardless, I doubt the Seahawks will win. Doesn't make the pats less of a cheating scumbag team, so can only hope karma does them in again.

@Dattix, if the seahawks win, will a random person get a key, no matter what they voted? Or will the key only be given to someone who voted seahawks?

 

Also go pats.

Whoever says the Seahawks are winning are crazy. Most people just like to hop on the bandwagon of teams that just get lucky throughout the playoffs, and it seams Seattle has had the most luck with this.

 

They are not a great offensive passing team, but they use the run, play action, and read option to their advantage. That being said, there defense is going to do most of the work against the Patriots, which wont work because Brady and Belichick will dismantle them like they did with the Colts. Patriots will win this superbowl 35-10 because of their now spontaneous run game with Blount and with Amendola and Edelman stepping up.

 

Seattle's offense was completely non-existent for 50 minutes of the whole game. You cant count the special fake field goal as an offensive play, if you do, you don't know football. Against the Patriots, if Wilson shits his pants like he did against Green Bay, Seattle will be annihilated, and to all the people who think Wilson is an "elite" QB, he is far from.   

  1. He has been in this league for I believe 3 years and has won 1 superbowl and is going to attempt to win his 2nd one, its impressive but it does not mean the kid ranks up to Brady, Rodgers, "Pre" Brees, Manning, pedigree.
  2. Last years superbowl win against the Broncos was a defensive beat down of Peyton Manning where the Broncos made too many offensive mistakes and the defense of Seattle just tore up the game. Wilson was not named mvp, because he did not contribute to the overall main reason why Seattle won. 
  3. Do you guys still remember who Colin Kaepernick is? He runs the same type of style Wilson does theoretically, and this past year he hasn't been to great. That was due to a different style of play calling by the offensive coordinator in San Fran, which contradicts what Kaepernick thrives on. Sooner or later the same will happen in Seattle, trust me, the style of read option/out of pocket qb's doesnt work in the long run. By all credit San Fran and Seattle have had a astounding 3 years of dominant football, but both are starting to decline.

 

My whole point in this was not to "bash" Wilson or fans of him or Seattle, but more to inform them of my opinion on the situation. You can think whatever you want, it's your right by all means, but sometimes it's not always right, same goes for myself. But seriously, if you really think Seattle can beat Belicheck, then I will wager 1 ref for every person that contacts me through steam. Seattle wins, I give you 1 ref, Pats win i get 1 rec. Sounds fair, if your a true Seattle fan, bet with me.

Then you must know the only reason the Patriots are labeled the "Spygate" team is because Belichick was the one who did it soon after the warning was given to ALL coaches. You act like the Patriots were the only ones doing this at the time, while in reality almost every team in the league did the same exact thing. The only reason he was singled out with a fine was because he ignored the warning and taped another practice soon after. Then the Colts, in the midst of their embarrassing choke against the Patriots look for a scapegoat, so they accuse them of deflating the balls - despite the balls being checked before and during the game by officials, and being used equally by both teams (I guess nothing would have helped poor Andrew in that game though). But in all seriousness, I'm glad South Park was your reference for this argument. pwink2.gif

 

I wonder what the bullshit story will be if they win this year. 

 

 

The only way Seattle wins this game is if Brady doesn't show up or their defense shuts him down.

I don't see any problem with people deflating their balls.  People have already been using steroids for decades.
