Day after day, I come onto the forum, which has had a steep downfall over the past 6 months, and see a thread about someone angry because they lost. If this was a court, there would be enough circumstantial evidence to call DFS gambling, based solely on the amount of people angry that they lost money alone. There has to be some kind of cease fire to the ridiculous amount of individuals who feel the need to post about how people are cheating, or how there is collusion. I have been playing DFS since May of 2013, and I am glad that it has exploded into the mainstream success that it is – however, I am just flat out sick of seeing all of the crybabies posting about how they lost.
Take it like a man or woman, have some integrity, and stop complaining about every single loss. I have the distinct feeling that just like we see advertisements and ads that indicate, “Don’t play over your head” with casino games and poker, this is just the next in the line of activities that are leading people into debt. If you cannot afford to play, you really shouldn’t. This is the logical jump I am making, because otherwise, I have no idea why people feel the need to attack other people’s success and good fortune by attempting to sully their reputations. Two quotes:
“Negative emotions like . . . envy . . . have an important role to play in a happy life; they’re big, flashing signs that something needs to change.”
“People who make the choice to study, work hard or do whatever they endeavor is to give it the max on themselves to reach to the top level. And you have the people who get envy and jealous, yet are not willing to put that work in, and they want to get the same praise.”
I am sure some of you will flame me for what I have said here, but I don’t really care. I am just sick of reading the whining, bickering nonsense. The big sites, FD, DK, and Victiv, they have policies that prevent double accounts. Whether or not they are sharing lineups, who cares? You only care when it leads to a loss, but what about when that same lineup drops 210.7 and 15 people have it? You win, I don’t see the same posts. I think people need to take a long look in the mirror and relax. This is supposed to be a fun hobby. I understand people being upset about a bad pick, and those things are understandable. “Oh, Alex Len was terrible.” “Oh Bumgarner gave up 7 ER tonight, crazy!” But, the allegations of cheating and calling people out is disgusting and we are all better than that. I really like the group of people here and I think we are all better than this (even though maybe 1% of the group is the problem)
Just my $.02.
