    this is a golden rule.....buy your own tickets that way if you win a million you don't end up with thousands after splitting it with 15 boneheads........

      I don't necessarily believe that the winning ticket was the pool's.  Most everyone I know that either runs a pool or participates in a pool, all buy their own tickets on the side.  That's natural.  What I don't understand is why this guy Piccolo called up his co-worker to brag that he won the $175,000 prize? - That was stupid and unnecessary and why he's being sued now!  News like that you share with your wife/family, etc., not co-workers who 9 times out of 10 are going to be jealous!  It's his own fault really!  Also, I use to run a pool and everyone had a copy of the tickets (including the tickets bought with small winnings, etc.) before the drawing.  There would be no problem if the winning ticket was not on the pool's photocopy.  I think the problem nowadays with jealous coworkers suing the person who ran a pool that won with his/her own personal ticket on the side is that, even if they believe it was not the pool's winning ticket, they will just get a lawyer to try to see if they can get some money anyhow!





      i totally agree...........
