    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. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

    Did he play last night?

    I checked a couple of NBA Tourneys, and he had no entries..He….err, “his friend”, hasn’t logged in to rotogr….errr, RG – since the 13th.

    If he wants to save face….He should come on, be transparent about what happened, and promise to pay folks back by a certain date. I think people will understand that mistakes and poor judgement happens

    I kind of have to disagree. I just don’t know if there’s any saving face with the fake cover story and rehab angle, which is pretty much looking for sympathy. That just takes it to a whole other level. As they say, the cover-up is always worse. On the other hand, if there are mitigating circumstances, I try to give people a second chance. I don’t know.

    If he did that from the start. Pretending to be somebody else in your post and playing contests pretty much took care of any chance at saving face.

    The most fun part of this thread is trying to identify the Seth Yates burner accounts —- I’ll set the O/U at 3….

    my theory is Squirrel is Seth’s alter ego

  • Mattg45

    Doubtful, as Squirrel wins on a regular basis :)

    I say DB has him as a guest on an RG podcast.

  • Nickjhk613

    This statement would be true if he actually paid out… So i guess he charged 100% rake

    Whoa, multiple recent arrests, didn’t realize that. Explains a lot. Guessing he is in rough financial shape and was rolling the dice on some “sure thing” bets that weren’t so sure.

  • OhioUBobcats

    That says he was arrested for OVI (DUI) and Driving while under OVI suspension on 2/1/19

    That’s it, that’s what happened.

    He’s not in “rehab”, he’s in jail for 10 days.

    Looks like that’s his 3rd, which in Ohio is a Felony.

    Unless he was tweeting from his cell on Feb 2nd and 3rd, he wasn’t in jail very long after the 2/1 offense.

    How could he have been in jail while he was taking bets and exchanging message s with people on twitter? The SB was 2 days later

  • Duelly21

    You can usually bond out in 24 hours.. Not sure about Ohio court systems but I’m sure you could bond out within 24 hours.

  • OhioUBobcats

    Yeah that doesn’t make sense.

    I am almost positive it’s an automatic 10 days for a 2nd offense in Ohio, and a 3rd is a Felony. That arrest record shows 2 others (with a disorderly conduct in between). Maybe they go away after a certain amount of time though??

    Also I had no idea he was getting in trouble this often. Not good.

    I think that everyone in this pool should take comfort in knowing that the $3k is probably being held securely by a Ohio Bail Bondsman right now. The money should become available once the defendant makes a court appearance.

    LOL this dude has been arrested a bunch recently…more than just one DUI

    Looks like shit too in the mugshots…alcoholism at the minimum but probably drugs and gambling among other problems

  • sportspoolguy

    This is my first ever Messageboard read and my first ever post. It will never be this good again, will it?

  • Mcdonacr

    Its obvious the FBI got him for running the squares pool, lets stop jumping to conclusions despite him having 4 arrests, 3 of which have been in the last 4 months

  • Duelly21

    Appropriate screen name sportspool…. Little suspicious though 🤔

    If I recall his third board was handwritten, when the other two were computer generated. Maybe the 10 days he was in jail he had a “friend” running that for him.

    Regardless, dude seems like a legit shyster!

  • Messiah717

    Well it all makes sense now. Got slapped with another DUI in addition to other things. The money is long gone folks. He’s finished so move on.
