    I gotta ask. I’ve spent a few months studying and compiling data. I’ve won and lost. But I cannot shake the feeling I’m being cheated. I am seeing EVERY NIGHT the 2-3 pools I bulk enter being won by folks who select just ONE lineup. One.
    Now I’ll go for the ‘even a blind squirrel finds a nut’ but this is feeling like total bullshit to me. I can’t post the image but tonight, late, user tfinnerty ends up taking the top 3 spots out of nowhere, with a lineup that makes ZERO statistical sense. There’s no combination of the names that makes sense not to mention no chance of getting fantasy cruncher to compute the lineup he plays.
    He had exactly THREE teams, all the same players,
    Last night, if you didn’t already know, 4 of the top 5 teams, all tied, were guys playing just 1 lineup.
    Is it just me or am I close to right that the mathamatical probabilities are off the charts for this to keep happening?
    it’s been happening almost all year long.
    Oh and fwiw the combined 7 teams were ALL different owners. 7 guys, 7 lineups, exactly the same, all chose just one lineup for the tourney.

    I usually dont notice stuff like that but, the 5 way tie from two nights ago i thought was interesting. My guess is theres an optimizer somewhere that spit that out.

    The NHL GPP tie from two nights ago was a very strange lineup, not so much because of the 4 player WPG PP1 correlation but because of the remaining players. I figured it was just a lineup seller who got lucky.

    Most nights I’m still seeing the max entry players at the top, which is to be expected.

    I heard somebody played Erik Haula once and won a lot of money.

    Well like 5 percent of NHL users probably use Cruncher. Sure it is annoying to lose to a train but it was a 2-2-2 forward combo with correlated defensemen and a goalie. I understand that you are probably upset you bricked 54 of 56 lineups, I would recommend paying close attention to the news, the other night you finished 10th in a GPP paying 25k to first place and started a player who was scratched. Removing Mike Zibanejad for JT Miller or David Desharnais and you would have came in first place, and probably never posted this thread.

    As usual, there is no conspiracy. No cheating. No bloody sock. And the answer comes down to spending less time bashing liberals, more time building better DFS lineups.

    In my opinion your post is a violation of this forum guideline: “No direct or indirect personal attacks or insults of any kind will be allowed. Posts which antagonize, belittle or humiliate other members and/or the moderators will not be tolerated.”
    We’ve all made mistakes with our lineups from time to time. Belittling someone is not the right way to address the OPs concern, no matter how silly you think it is.

    The irony here is you sound like one of those “snowflakes” that OP and his band of crazies rebel against.

    Drewby winning the internets as always.

    The second part was a way he could easily have improved his results by paying attention to news and not felt cheated. I didn’t even get into the irony of somebody who left taxpayers on the hook for 100m+ is complaining about being cheated playing fantasy sports.

    The OP didn’t bring anything political into his post. If you don’t have the personal discipline to do the same you should just keep your mouth shut, because the majority don’t want to hear it on this forum.

    The majority of us couldn’t care less what OP thinks and would be happy for him to just leave DFS if he wasn’t such a fish.

    Thanks for proving my point in showing how your own personal biases affect your response to a legitimate and honest question/concern.

    I just thought I’d share something that had crossed my mind. I get the bitterness, you’ve been here for what, 5 years? And I am already kicking your ass as a newbie. I’d be pissed too if I were you.
    I’ve “virtually” met a million cowards like you on the internet. Not one ounce of sac to speak publicly about the things you type.
    Oh and you elected the douchebags that screwed your state, that’s on you. I put my money where my mouth was, over 50m to be exact.
    You dumbasses elected that short bus riding idiot of a governor.
    And FWIW, your state came to my company with an offer, not now or ever was it any different.
    P.S Get over it, it was 13 years ago, we won, you lost. Biggest choke in history, time to move on sweetie.

    I see there’s a double standard for abusive posts at RG. I’m shocked.

    Sounds like Curt and Drewby need to play a h2h challenge to see who is better.

    What a disgusting statement. I coach many “short bus riders” in Special Olympics that I respect a lot more as athletes than this moron. I would suggest Curt Schilling volunteer as a Special Olympics coach but I would hate to subject any athletes to his vile rants.

  • kellykip

    Wow how the hell did I miss this thread?

    Challenging the DFS abilities of the Drewby’s/Mberkowi’s/Saugoodman’s of the world is definitely not something I thought I’d be reading anytime soon.

    EDIT: see that SaulGd was requesting OP’s presence to catch a fair one, but OP has been non-committal so far; 5k challenge would be some fun viewing
