    So Seth Yates ran 3 SB pools on twitter. Took 3 K from all different people via PayPal and Venmo and never paid out the winners. He hasn’t tweeted since Super Bowl Sunday but has been active on RG as early as yesterday. I wasn’t a victim but he just screwed 3 K from members of the DFS community and maybe some people in this very forum. He was an Active poster on RG and also wrote a few columns in the past. Anyone hear anything? The guy use to tweet everyday all day and now nothing. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

    The 3k was used to attend this year’s Fyre Festival

    This is the best comment so far!

    Right, but to me that comes off as a post to buy time. If he was planning to just take the money and run, why would he make that post? He very well may have been in rehab at some point but it has nothing to do with why he has not paid out this block pool. I believe there is still hope though that he recoups the money and pays it out. But he’s doing himself zero favors by not being honest about it.

    He made the post because he wanted the phonecalls to stop as he prob hasn’t told his wife he is a degenerate loser in addition to a drunk ! No excuses for being an ass to the very same people who bought his $20 NFLX package here on RG and supported his Squares pools the past couple years.

    I hope we all learned a valuable lesson – never EVER send money to a guy whose biggest win ever came in CFL DFS.

    Worst takes in this thread:

    1. Seth may have been taken down by the FBI
    2. This will attract mainstream attention
    3. Bud Light is beer

    If there was ever a time for a downward spiral, between Maroon 5, the boring game, and the Patriots winning, that SB was it.

    All kidding aside, I see a lot of “I hope he gets better”. I get it, many posters are kind and well intentioned people. Regardless, Seth probably DGAF about your thoughts or feelings considering he stole your $. If anything, next time you hear from him he’ll need another $50 so he can use it to “win the 3k back”.

    If you read what I read and think that’s Seth friend posting here on “RG” it’s pretty clear that you haven’t dealt with a sociopath before.

    Seth Yates – LOL – anyone actually remember that trash preseason package that he “sold us” for $20? The guy literally posted like 30 players he liked at every position and even with that lots of times didn’t even prepare the write up until the day of, just hours before the kickoff. Last minute trash. He’s a scam artist and a thief. A simple google search will show you his true colors.

    My favorite part of this thread is thinking how great this thread was and then realizing i still have pages and pages left…thanks for getting me through my afternoon

    there is NEVER a valid reason for screwing people out of their money-spare me the sob stories. Life is about choices and when you choose to take peoples money you best be prepared to pay the piper. I have zero ponies in this race but if somebody cheated me out of money I would be relentless in my pursuit

    Relentless like Fred Goldman?

    Honestly, I saw a couple of tweets about it. Nothing much. I almost jumped in on the squares until I saw his 1979 spiral notebook he was doing it on. I mean come on you can print blank Sb sheets off line for freE. I looked that he didn’t tweet since Sunday and then I knew something was up.

    Remember when Chino Rheem sold more than 100% of himself and went on to win the tournament for like a million? Could be a dumber move than the Seth’s friend idea.

  • Messiah717

    Seth’s friend figured out his Twitter password and will soon be launching a March Madness Contest. 50% of the people who got scammed with the Super Bowl boxes will join.

    People on Twitter are comparing Seth’s rep to the Siege rep what did he do?

    Be a complete and utter jackass at all time? Hype up a fight he had no intention of going through with?

    Once he’s better he’s gonna steal your wife next.

  • flip4flop

    Well, at least Seth made the Superbowl interesting and worth talking about two weeks later.

    This certainly won’t happen. But it made me laugh.

  • Duelly21

    I never post on here but this is funny stuff! I don’t really understand what Twitter or Dfs community really means but it just got a lot more interesting for me 😎 This whole thing reminds me of: I bet his bookie was his so called friend!
