Post The opportunity of a lifetime.
OK, this MAY not be the correct place for this, but since the discussion started here in the Jungle, and it's definitely Lions-related, I'm posting it here. Move it if you must, sticky it if possible.

If you haven't been following my "Why I believe the Lions will be better than the Bears" thread, an opportunity has fallen into our laps in the form of a bet with Mr.Pickles.

What's the bet, you ask?
If the Lions win 4 or more games this upcoming regular season ('06-'07), then whoever agrees to the bet will get to change Mr.Pickles signature both here and on his Chicago Bears message board.

Should the Lions win 3 games or fewer, Mr.Pickles gets to put whatever he wants, within the guidelines, in your signature.


Stipulations are as follows:

Your avatar or profile can not have anything to do with your signature.

Not adhering to the bet after agreement will result in banishment of both screen name and IP address if possible.

The changes will take effect at the end of the regular season and last until the first '07-'08 regular season game.

You do not have access to the other persons account, you are hereby making a "gentlemans" agreement, and others are trusting you as a man of your word, to enter in your signature, a phrase or picture of the winners choosing.

Changing of avatars is acceptable as long as it does not interfere with the signature.


ALL ENTRIES MUST BE POSTED BY JULY 23RD, 2006. ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED UNTIL MIDNIGHT, JULY 23RD, EASTERN STANDARD TIME.


Pickles, you must suggest any changes publicly in this thread.
Once you agree, any further stipulations must be approved by all parties entering the bet.

If you agree to the bet and want in on it, you must reply with the following message somewhere in your text:
"I'm in."
Then state which side you're on.

I'm in for team Lionbacker.

How about the signature does not have to change until seasons end? That way it will give something to look forward to in the off-season. A long off-season for Lions fans.

What else?

I added these stipulations. I have nothing further to add if you don't.

We should give this until the end of July for signing up, or the end of training camp, you decide.

Now, Mr.Pickles is a fair pickle, let Mr.Pickles ask this, say your entire defense is using steroids and gets busted, leaving your team with a bunch of scabs playing for you. Now as much as Mr.Pickles would love to say "tough luck", Mr.Pickles does know that is not fair, how would you deal with this?

Well, if any key players are injured or suspended for any reason, then tough crap. The bet still stands.

Now Mr.Pickles has agreed in principal, but give Mr.Pickles a couple more days to think of any more stipulations.

And for you as well.

Such fun to be had by all!!!

Again, I have nothing to add.
If another person agrees to this bet, all stipulations must be agreed to by them as well.
And now that you've agreed, if further stipulations aren't approved by everyone then you're still binded to the stipulations the way they are written at the time of the 2nd person's agreement.

Bear in mind that I will agree with all reasonable stipulations. You may not be so lucky with everyone else.

Nobody has access to change avatars or sigs...except the admins.

It's basically an honest bet, that everyone will be men about this and put the suggested comment in other person's sig.

The bet shall go on, if you both want. The only stipulations on sigs are what they've always been; no personal attacks and nothing obscene. We've changed very few sigs over the years (99% spam) and very few avatars (99% resizing the avatar).

What the hell, count me in as well.

OK, it's on.

Further stipulations must be approved by both myself and Conversion02.

OK, I took away the stipulation that more than 1 person must agree to the bet because they already have. Keeping it up might cause confusion.

Mr.Pickles,

You must post the following phrase "I'm in for team Pickles".

Mr.Pickles has agreed in principal, but will wait for all stipulations to be heard before going all in.

July 23 is the cut-off date, lets get all the players involved first.

Actually, how about all stipulations in by july 3rd. Thats one week. One week to decide if you are in or out. Not counting you and Mr.Pickles.

Agree?
