Methinks he doth protest too much (about lottery pools).

    It was nice but certainly not necessary for the guy who gave them $100,000 to do that. I wonder if that decision was made after a few court

    dates or when the guy got his check. I only say that because I'm just wondering about the level of entitlement the couple felt and how many of

    the other players they approached with the same plan and at what point.

    Obviously they filed the suit but really, deep down, I wonder if they ever felt that since they didn't play or pay that day they weren't honestly entitled

    to a split of the pot? And after receiving $100,000 I guess the sense of entitlement or assumption to split grew out of control...if one did, maybe more

    would.

    I don't know why people think that if they are a contributing member one week $$$ that they still are a contributing member the next $0.00

    The 'I'll cover for you' doesn't quite cut it after awhile and with most people doesn't ever cut it when it's time to collect a few hundred thousand

    dollars or more.

    I Agree!  also i wonder did the ppl. that "gave" the $100,000 have to pay a gift tax ?
