Per, Trumpy-poo is definitely going to win... Trumpy-poo always wins! :thumbs:

But yeah, those aren't fair odds, Vegas is giving much better odds than that...
So, on the one hand you say he is certain to win, which means you would jump at getting 1:1 odds.

On the other hand you say that 4:1 odds aren’t good enough, which means you’re pretty sure he’s going to lose.

So, in conclusion, you’re either full of shit or a coward. Which is it? :eh:

Good news! Björklöven cleared of suspiscions! :thumbs:
https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/article ... stigation/

Turns out it was a manual error. Someone at Bet365 flipped the odds in the Björklöven vs Mora game around, so the figures were reversed for the teams. Then, as all bookies use software to track what the other bookies are doing, the odds offered by other companies started moving in the wrong direction, leading to suspiscion that there was something nefarious going on. Björklöven were the hands on favourites to win, and despite taking a 3-0 lead, the odds offered to bet on them winning were rising... and then they fell apart and lost big time. Thus several betting companies stopped all betting on this game and froze payments pending investigation. But now it turns out there was no real criminal activity, just that their defence and goaltending was criminally bad.

Hopefully Kevin Poulin will be back in the crease tomorrow. They have still not lost a single game with him tending goal, except for the game when he was injured in the first period, so that one falls on his backup.

You know, I have asked you to suggest the terms of the bet, but you keep evading the question.

Because the truth is that you simply do not want to make this bet, on any terms, as you know for certain that you will lose.

Thus I can only interpret your answer as ”both”; you’re too much of a coward to take the bet and too full of shit to admit it.

But it’s OK. You can feel safe here. We still like you, despite your flaws. 8-)

Guess I learnt from the best. :cheers:

So, when does the season start? :hmmm:
I mean, sure I have Swedish hockey to watch, but I need my NHL fix too.

At least the WJC should start any minute now.

Sweden has been eliminated from the WJC.

Björklöven's Canadian Olympic goalie, Kevin Poulin, played three games, then got injured again.
Shoulder this time. Will miss 6-8 weeks. :cry:
So why doesn't the embed tweet function work on this board?

And now Björklöven's games tonight and on Wednesday have been postponed because several players have tested positive.

I just can't get my hockey fix!

And more than a week left till the Canucks games begin.

Sheesh! :evil:

And imho number 13 in Almtuna, Liljendahl, should have been carried out on a stretcher.
The Björklöven players need to stand up for their goalie.
