Man you say your smart and got a 780..whatever... twice now you've stated something thats just wrong.

So sure, a coin lands tails 5 times in a row... so i call heads trying to be smart and assume "its gotta be heads sometimes"...so i flip the coin..and it lands tails, why? because there is still a 50% chance of heads or tails, i don't have a 75% chance of being right now, it's still 50/50. the previous flip of tails has NOOO affect on the current coin flip. And BTW, card counting is completely different. Even with 7 decks after just one hand the chances of certain cards comming up change BECAUSE some cards have been removed, decreasing the chance of them comming up.

With a coin heads and come up and tails come come up, always and forever. it's all ways a 50 / 50.

In the game it's prolly perfect programming because its extremely simple, if not... i wonder why. If you win 13 coin tosses in a row (real life or madden) considerer yourself lucky.... now you've got a 50/50 of getting 14 in a row.

lol Why is this so hard to understand. There is no advantage to picking the coin toss, When Something is 50/50 it does not matter if you know what the previous results.

Re: Coin Tosses

If the OP does (for example) 100 more coin tosses, probability shows that the end result with be close to a 50/50 ratio (it won't be precise but close)...10-15 examples is far too small a sample to claim bugs/glitches. If you have an 80-90% winning percentage after, say 100 games then you might have a point.

Also --> What does it matter? The OP elects to kickoff, the CPU always elects to receive so whether he wins the toss or loses the toss the end result is the same...so technically, yes, you are successful everytime coin toss.
