  • Stations Last Man Standing

    My friend is one of the two remaining in the Last Man Standing. He won this week.
    Stations has kept the contestants picks a secret. In fact they have kept the contestants a secret.
    This is not right. What is going on behind the scenes? Is Art Manteris the other contestant?
    I guess I should not be surprised at this coming from the most corrupt Sportsbook in Nevada.
    My friend will not find out until Wednesday if he needs to make another pick or whether he won $63,000

      ziggylasvegas....as CEK3 said, that's how Stations has always run Last Man Standing. I'm not condoning it (and obviously prefer they were more transparent for the integrity of the contest as well as giving remaining contestants more information in case they wish to hedge or something) but they're always remained tight-lipped about it. In fact, I've tried to give them free publicity over the years by writing more about the contest but it makes it hard when picks aren't available before the games are played...and, as you pointed out, it sucks they don't give the results until the print the contest lines each Wednesday.

      Another policy I hate is that there's a 7-day dispute period in the rules that the winner doesn't become official until after a full week later and the Stations staff hasn't budged on that, so most years unless I've known the winner through other means, I've not bothered doing a story on the winner a week later as it's old news (and I've moved onto other things as well).

      I hope your friend wins (and would gladly do a story on him if he does...even before Station make it official LMEAO). GL

            Won again. Will find out tomorrow morning.
            The contestants were never told who had what last week. I accused Stations of being corrupt. They revealed last weeks picks in a response on Twitter.
            This week my friend won with Houston.

                  ziggylasvegas...I saw your Tweets and understand your frustration, though actually surprised to see Stations did post the plays last Sunday afternoon.

                  One of the problem with that contest is they allow people to put picks in until kickoff of the game they're using, so can't publish any picks in advance...and if someone were to wait until right before kickoff of Monday Night Football game, any picks might not be available to post until after that game started.

                  Again, very frustrating to be in that position. Hope it works out for your friend.
