  • MLB, 8/27

    Stop giving sites the benefit of the doubt. They are partnered with the leagues therefore they incur the risk. Everyone is not equal in this situation. If they have to eat losses that's a cost of doing business. They're using the gambler psychosis against ... Read More

  • Fanpicks Warning - I am a "Terms of Use" Violator!

    Pretty sure Cashier Scott is the only person that works at ScamPicks and the dude is clearly devoid of any customer service and/or conflict resolution skills. They've been canceling guaranteed contests half way through the slate, do zero player pricing ad... Read More

  • CBB

    with the madness set to begin I was hopeful they'd have it fixed by now but I went through the site today and it really is laughable. Add to that the fact that 3 days ago he said they were "aware of the issues" and apparently it's still not fixed? Bad opti... Read More

    Nah, no axe at all. Came in to ask some questions and you got defensive and/or ignored em so I dug a little deeper. Don't be mad at me just because I highlighted your "inefficiencies". If I had an axe to grind I wouldn't be posting in this obscure of a for... Read More

    No, I know the difference. Seems to me you simply don't understand the meaning of the word "all". I see you chose to ignore the refund question? If you have no way of manipulating your own contests it's pretty obvious now that you're just a dude who bought... Read More

  • CBB

    Just out of curiosity, will you be offering refunds to everyone who has been raked an extra 5% on 50/50's and H2H's since you went live? 5% could be a lot of money for some of your regulars. And although you indicated otherwise, I see that 15% is your stan... Read More

    It's neither here nor there to me but like I said it's been that way since I started paying attention (pretty sure it was more than 2 per day) and only you or someone who has been playing there for awhile knows how many contests were entered and paid out t... Read More

  • CBB

    A quick look at your lobby this morning showed multiple 50/50's at various levels raked at 15% and they've been that way for at least a week or 2 since I started paying attention. You're actually stating exactly what I was regarding rake decreasing yet you... Read More

  • CBB

    I know full well that rake can be higher than 10% at other sites. However that is for large tourney GPP fields where the possibility of hitting big is present and at the very least min cashing doubles your outlay. Keep in mind that all of those tournies ... Read More

  • CBB

    I recently started checking the site out in hopes that there would be some decent March Madness action and have to say the site is disappointing. CBB was always the least popular offering but it was at least larger than the 5 - 10 players at the site. Afte... Read More

  • FanDuel Single Entry Series, Presented by RotoGrinders

    100% advocate for finishing position setup as oposed to toral points. If it's about the best single entry player the scoring should be based on where you finish as opposed to aggregated points. Take each players finishing position, add em together and the... Read More

  • crazygabey and NY Times Article

    Lol. Did I say "stop playing"? What I was implying was that a semi intelligent non degenerate gambler type would exercise good REAL LIFE bankroll management and withdraw the majority of the money and NOT try to become a "pro" which is what many of us have ... Read More

  • NBA, 1/7

    Yeah and there are exactly 5 guys on that list. 2 of which were centers, the other who was on the receiving end of the career assist leader and a guy named Mike. Be it facts or perspective Kobe is now and always has been a chucker Read More

  • crazygabey and NY Times Article

    Oh so prior to the news he was risking his night on another min priced guy in all 400 of his lineups (cuz they were all the same right?)? Who was THAT guy? Once again it's the perception of what he did not what he actually did because I (nor you) have no... Read More

  • crazygabey and NY Times Article

    And he did so on hundreds of lineups at the last minute (when he was the announced starter) using a script that violated the TOS which resulted in a massive win for him and losses for everyone who wasn't using a script. It's not about whether or not you co... Read More

    Au contraire, if a (reasonable) noob wins $1.5m a good portion of that money leaves the industry whereas if a "pro" wins its more rake down the line. Who do you think the sites would rather have win? Read More

    Right but that's YOU. what about the guy who didn't win "shiploads of money" who also didn't have Frye but had a lineup that would've beat Max without Frye? Does he have a complaint in your opinion? Read More

    I was giving them the benefit of the doubt. They may have cost themselves a lot more when all is said and done. They had estimated $1b valuations (purely for effect however as I presume once it went to UW/vetting all of these issues would've prevented that... Read More

    I get it, you get it, the rest of RG gets it but we are the minority and we are not the drivers of the complaints. We don't "need" consumer protection. They BOMBARDED the airwaves with $200m in ads in less than a year and brought the scrutiny on themselve... Read More

    All due respect as I tend to agree with most of your post but this is a huge issue from a consumer protection aspect. "Come win a shipload of money,....... just don't post any H2H as you'll lose your shirt". One of the biggest complaints about FD for yea... Read More
