So I came back in here to see what went in on this room during this past week's contest, postmortem. And I see that you're still giving the answers to complete strangers, including Glendale, who posted live the winning audio answer, to at least two of the five winners of the week, much to the angst of the other posters here! Who do you think you are impressing? I warned you about this a few years ago, but I gave up after last year, because you continue to prove me correct that I am wasting my breath and that you'll never learn.

Maybe, if you regulars truly want to ever win one of these things, you'll smarten up some year in the future, as others have done on other boards, and create a members-only section for sharing your answers with one another, and not with the rest of the free world. Then you'd be picking off the trips like cherries. But it won't happen as long as Glenny keeps popping off.

Meanwhile, I'm off this week on my (you guess the number)'th Big Game trip, in spite of all of your failings. And I am really excited to see my favorite team's new stadium live and in person. But I'd trade all of the trips just to go see the Cowboys in one Super Bowl.

It could be you. But it probably will not, and it's only getting worse each year.

I don't think helping "complete strangers" is such a terrible thing ...

Agreed. Besides, as we all have found out, the difficulty of getting through on the phones to play, let alone win, makes it very unlikely the majority of visitors to the boards will play the contest. It is more likely that we find out the answers so that we may play on our own and even with friends or at some other Super Bowl trivia game/event.

You don't get it. It's called cause and effect.

It's because you post the answers here, that traffic increases to the site during the contest, and all those people then call in, and that's why you can not get through to the contest.

That was not the case before the answers were given here. You could get through then. But each year since, as more people learn that the answers are here each year, it gets increasingly difficult.

You all heard it yourself how the winners got their juice here.

If ya' didn't post the answers public-ly, then people wouldn't be here, they'd be less likely to call in, and only you would have the answers, and then you'd have a much better chance to win!

I'll send you a picture from the new stadium...

Your complaints are kind of self-serving. You don't participate here during the year except during the contest, so using your logic, why should anyone here help you with answers? Personally, I have no interest in playing or winning the contest, so if I can help in any way I am more than happy to do so. If the contest was "locked" to guests, chances are very few if any people would play along here. Enjoy your trip to the Super Bowl, and I guess we will see you here same time next year for your annual "contribution" to the board.

At whom is this curious missive directed? Who here has expressed a desire to restrict the answers? Which contributors have gone on about actually attending a Super Bowl?! I guess I could say that "some other folks don't get it", since they are not going to Phoenix next weekend for the Waste Management Open. Personally, If I had wanted to go to Dallas to see a game in the new stadium I would have gone back in September for Oregon State - TCU, or something watchable ...

I don't need this board's help with the answers.
The answers here aren't even all accurate, but I'll let you figure out which ones they are.
I've won before this board existed, an will continue to do so, in spite of you giving mostly correct answers out to the public.

I don't need this board to win - I am laughing at it!

I am posting these messages, because if you look at the two times when Glendale gave out the winning audio answer in real time to the contestant, it is followed by a bunch of posters who are angry at him for giving them the winning edge. All the other posters here would have a chance to win if you just had a private chat room during the contest. Go back and read what they wrote.

Hey, tomorrow is February 1st. It'll be time to start a 'new monthly thread', won't it?

Well, you're making it abundantly clear that it is you who does not "get it". You were bothered by this last year, but you returned this year to decry it again?

Here's what you asked (in one of your nine posts of 2010):

Here's the "it" that you don't "get": we would rather have a few new board members. You mocked us for our "monthly threads", but the reality is that there are months in the year outside of this contest. This forum is for people who have an interest in discussing Mike Francesa's shows and other content on WFAN; folks who are interested post, folks who are not do not.

You have a full year to build your dedicated Super Bowl Contest website with "private chat rooms" ...

The people call because now they know the answer and are not wasting their time guessing. Who won't play the lottery if they knew they had the winning ticket?

If giving out the answers here as quick as possible during the contest to impress the few of you who live here is your prize, then enjoy yourselves. If hearing the few winners who will admit live on the air to Mike that they got their answers from mikefrancesa.com (when that's the only time in the whole year that they visit here) is what gets you off, then revel in it, and also in the brief spike in thru traffic that you get each year during the contest period.

But as long as you keep providing the rest of the free world with the answers, which directly results in clogging the only four phone lines in to the contest, then none of you here will ever get the chance to win one of these and all that comes with it:

What you do here hasn't stopped me. But your actions do keep the regulars here on your 'board' from having a real chance at winning. But if your prize is your own little online pride party then that's your choice. Have fun with that next year.
