I prefer the newer wager system but if people are going to be picking one guy and then wagering on the other, isn't that pretty much cheating? I for one think that you should only be allowed to wager on the guy that you are picking in the fight. If you don't follow that rule then it allows for someone to possibly win the money title for the event without even getting the fight picked correctly. I'm sure that I'm not the only person who's annoyed with people doing this, so I encourage you to speak out and hopefully we can get the rules changed.
dude you got it WAAAAAAY wrong. wagering is gambling man. you can pick a fighter to win becusae you think he will win. but you can wager on a fighter you think will lose becuase the payout is so big. in that offchance that he DOES win. ---->THEY ARE TWO COMPLETLY DIFFERNT THINGS<-----
let me put it like this.
lets say Anderson Silva fights Chris Leben again. who would you pick to win? probably silva.
and lets say you are over at my house and i go hey want to bet me that leben will win? and you go what! no way man.
and i go ok fine fine.. but i tell you what ill bet you my 500 bucks to your 10 bucks that silva will win the fight.
if i gave you those odds (becuase its gambling) you would be a fool not to take that. why?
becuase anything can happen an your only losing 10 bucks. its worth it.
so you see you think silva will win but the gambling odds are so good you just cant pass up putting a little down to make a whole lot of money.
or conversly if you felt like winning 10 bucks easy you could wager 500 bucks on silva. but wheres the fun in that? AND your Risking 500 bucks on your fighter to make 10 dollars. would you take that bet in real life? i wouldnt. the fun is actually seeing who has the balls to throw down alot of money on a fighter that is a TOTAL gamble.
youve got the seperate the two..
1)point system is to see who can make more educated guesses.
2)wagering is purely to make money.
they are two differnt parts of the game.
so no its not cheating.
P.s- Your poll is even inaccurate too. option 1) yes it is (when no its not) option 2) no, its taking advantage of the system (no its not taking advantage of the system.
you should change your options to 1)yes 2)no to see just how wrong people think you are. dont be bias and throw "taking advantage of the system in there.
