    looks like a legit sig bet to me. own up to it msn, its not that outrageous.

    what you have now makes you look like a puss, get rid of it altogether if you don't want to honor the loss.

    Damn, I'm bored at work to chip in on this

    what he asked for isn't outrageous at all.

    but blank check sig bets are ridiculous. When he never got back to me, I thought he didn't want to do it.

    I'm at work, too...so I'll chime in.

    Looks like msn laid out some terms. At worst, he should be required to have his signature say "Vince just wins" - he's well within his rights to not even have that, though.

    He laid out some terms, INCLUDING what his signature would say if he lost, the other party said it sounded good, but he wasn't sure about the terms exactly as noted, and then never responded.

    There's no real good analogy - best I can come up with would be if I was buying something, and said to the seller, I'll take the upgrade for $10, the seller said that sounds great but let me think about the price, and then a few weeks later he ships the upgrade to you and charges you $20. At worst, I'd expect to only be out the $10, but I'd probably have a valid argument that no contract was ever entered and I shouldn't get or have to pay for anything.

    my two cents.

    Hey man, that's a great point. I should at least put what my original terms were.

    gonna have to disagree.

    they both agreed to the bet right off the bat. He's just using a technicality to get out of it similar to your analogy. I would agree with this had the sig been something out of line.

    But since the winning sig is keeping with the nature of the bet, I think it should stand. If anything the winning sig is even tamer than what msn wanted posted had he won the bet.

    I'm leaving work so I will probably never see the outcome of this. Good luck :grin:

    not too high. I disagree with your position, but Jay was right on.

    I'll do these in the future, but I'll be careful to point out that I want these details done in advance.

    In poker, you don't ante up *after* everyone shows his hand. Same deal here: it was bullcrap to run in here *after* the win and say, "oh by the way..." Then act like he did everything right.

    At any rate, I added it to my sig.
