    And you can be as confident as you want about anything - never, ever confident enough to put things as precious (YES, THERE IS AN ELEMENT OF JEST THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!) as avatars on the line.
    But I didn't bet on the WC because I was sensible enough not to. But here I am sensible enough too. Anyways I am not backing out, Sam's not backing out, and hopefully Gelman won't either. Let the drama unfold . End of discussion.

    Why did you even bother with said bet then? Why not just do it of your own accord?
    And I'm that sure Aus will win.
    That's not really the point - you shouldn't be encouraging Aseem. You shouldn't be taking delight in anyone being so silly as to forfeit their avatar for ever more.

    When there is a challenge like this, there can be no winner, is what I'm saying.

    Dude forget it, get over it, no matter what imo this is not silly at all and I'm not backing down no matter what ( I am that sure India will draw/win ). If not Sam and Gelman, some next guy I am sure will be more than happy to accept. So it's not really Sam that's encouraging, I encouraged Sam.

    Because it was a win-win situation for me. I could choose someone elses avatar for a year if Australia loose, but if they won, it wouldn't matter because I deliberatley chose a player that would most likely feature in my avatar anyway.

    Aseem is 2 years older than me, I really don't think that it should come down to me encouraging him, he's plenty old enough to make desicions for himself, even if they are crazy and stupid.

    I'll take that as an 'I'm all for taking part in ridiculous avatar challenges, please count me in, like Gelman and Sam', shall I Jamee?

    Sounds good, great that you're entering the spirit.

    It was a to-myself challenge, though, as I remember - "I'll have Hussey as my avatar for a year if Aus win". Not "any Aussies fancy a bet here?"
    Aseem is 2 years older than me, I really don't think that it should come down to me encouraging him, he's plenty old enough to make desicions for himself, even if they are crazy and stupid.
    I could give you people who are 2 years older than me who are less responsible about gambling than me. Heck, I could give you people who are 30 years older than me in said boat - age is not the sole denominator of good-sense.

    People should always, always IMO take it upon themselves to try and reason with those who are worth reasoning with.

    Well if you don't take 'em with any seriousness, TBH, it begs the question of why not simply never put one up?

    And as I said - while there are many things in life more important than an avatar on CW, I gurantee you someone is going to seriously regret this - very probably Aseem.
