Green Card
By Dennis Ranahan

Training camps open in July, preseason games in August and the 2017 National Football League regular season on September 7. While the fruits of off-season labor will be on display with increasing consequences in those months and dates we have clear perspective now on why some teams rise to the top and others remain cellar dwellers no matter how many high draft choices they gain by poor regular season records.

The Cleveland Browns have made trades to stockpile draft picks, no doubt coming to the realization that the great teams in the NFL build through the draft. Problem is, arming the Browns organization with extra draft picks is akin to handing over the keys of the family van to a five-year-old with expectations he can pick you up after work.

The San Francisco 49ers were once atop the NFL in both organization and results, which, by the way, are not independent. Success begins with the organization and the play on the field is simply a reflection of that strength.

When the DeBartolo family bought the 49ers in 1977, they were put in the hands of an inexperienced owner who was the son of a highly successful businessman. One of Eddie Debartolo’s first moves when he was put in charge of the team was to seek the counsel of Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis. The Raiders owner was a maverick in his own league but a master at building a strong organization. DeBartolo was smart enough to know reaching out to men who had succeeded where he was beginning in a new endeavour was wise, and Davis recommended that DeBartolo surround himself with experienced NFL management veterans.

Davis suggested Joe Thomas be his choice for general manager, and DeBartolo took the advice and hired Thomas who had front office experience with the Minnesota Vikings, Miami Dolphins and Baltimore Colts before joining San Francisco. His tenure with Debartolo’s new organization in San Francisco was an abysmal failure.

Banking Two Thoughts
About Money

By Dennis Ranahan

Now, I want to be really careful how I state this and I don’t want you to get the wrong idea. So, let me state it clearly and then I respectfully ask you to read the whole article so you know what I mean.

It’s not about the money.

Okay, don’t overreact to that statement, but rather open up to the possibility of holding two thoughts at the same time; it’s not about the money and it’s all about the money.

Those two statements are not in opposition, but rather a key factor in turning sports wagering from an emotional rollercoaster to a steady-as-she-goes investment. Here’s why, the books prey on the emotions of gamblers who are quick to predictable actions that almost always leave them in the red. Why? Because gamblers wager more when they are ahead until they no longer are while thinking they are playing with “house” money. In an even worse scenario, some bet more when they are behind in an attempt to get even until they have lost much more than they ever thought they would risk.

Gamblers often base their wagers not on the strength of a point spread proposition, but rather on the success or failure of the previous result. In other words, past money wins or losses are determining current wager amounts.

That’s what I mean when I say it’s not about the money. A wager should never be about the money and only about the strength of the current point spread proposition. The amount wagered on a particular game should only be based on the value of that play … not what happened in any previous result.

When that method is followed the only thing that really matters can be realized, bottom line profits. Because, and never lose sight of this … it’s all about the money.
