I made a mistake when posting the lines for the MNF game between the Bears and 49ers. I had the Bears listed as the home team. Since they were getting +7 points, it may have influenced some of the betting.

There is also a question of whether the over/under would be influenced.

Please give me your opinion on whether some or all of the bets should be cancelled.

Please, only vote if you are in this contest and have money left.

Poll options:
Cancel ALL bets
Cancel point spread and ML bets
Cancel just the losing bets
Cancel NO bets

I will leave this open until tomorrow when I post the Week 12 Thursday games. Majority option will be used.

I lost two bets.....but I vote to only eliminate the ML and point spread bets. I'll take the over/under loss.

it's not worth making a big deal, imo...if cancelling the losing bets makes people happy, that's fine...(though i agree w pestilence, probably didn't effect o/u)

I've reconsidered. I voted to not cancel any bets even though it costs me money. We should have known who was home. It was our fault. We made the bets. Leave em be.

All I care about is that my last bet not be cancelled after I clearly stated in the thread that I knew the game was in SF.

I shouldn't be punished for the fuckup and I'm the only person who would lose won money if you cancel all the bets.

I have no dog in this fight, but if what Buck said is accurate, it would be pretty fucked up for him to lose money when he knew what the situation was.

Yep, there were only 2 winning bets on the MNF game and one was mine. BRC also bet the over, but he lost on the spread I think. Every other bet lost.

Yeah, you're good regardless.

Not much response, but right now there are 9 votes to cancel bets in some form and only 2 votes to keep them. I'll probably just cancel the points spread and ML bets.

I wonder how they would've voted if they'd won. ;)

I think you're doing the right thing. You didn't ask, but everyone loves a little pat on the back!

There is no obvious opinion in the poll. Your the founder, big kahuna here. I'm sure everyone will respect and honor your decision. No BS.

I voted cancel only losing bets out of respect for those two who placed winners. Really, I am fine with any decision you make, just as long as we get some thanksgiving lines!

I'm cancelling all point spread and ML bets.

I'm way behind on figuring out last weeks games, so I will be posting the lines for tomorrow's games in a new thread very soon. I will have the standings published there an hour or so later.

My apologies for screwing this up in the first place.
