ESPN and The Mexican

This is weird. A buddy of mine pointed out a very odd "rule" in a long set of rules in a sports game hosted by ESPN.com. The game seems fairly simply, keep alive the longest streak of winning predictions on particular games (i.e. which team will win) or propositions (i.e. will the first points be a TD or a field goal). How to play the game here. But when he looked at the official rules, (you know that boilerplate stuff about how employees and family members of ESPN are ineligible, blah, blah, blah), he ran across Rule 14.4: What's up with that?

There is a simple math question with Canadian contests because of gambling rules or whatever: the math problem makes it a skills test, not a game of chance or something like that. I don't know about Mexico; never lived there.

That is f'n hilarious! Can we put a math test or commen sense test on more things? How about drivers license, parenting, shit the possibilities are endless!

Math aint no problem fer Messkins. Ever notice how good they are at multiplyin'?

thats because by adding a "skill testing" question the whole thing becomes a contest of skill and therefore no longer an illegal "lottery", its common to do that in Canada...
