  1. As a Cards fan, it feels like the Cards and Pirates will be playing for 2nd place in 2016.
  2. Health is a skill. Some guys get hurt a lot. Holliday and Grichuk can't stay healthy. If they did, the OF of Holliday, Grichuk, Piscotty would be ok for 2016. Since we all know they will get hurt, the Cards need to sign Gordon or somebody of that ilk.
  3. How bout somebody (me) who lost in football with a few $50 leagues, but is in first place of a $200 basketball league? I'm trying to get my entry fees charged back to me.
  4. I was wondering that too. My guess would be yes.
  5. Well, his rate just recently changed to 100%. Sorry if this is too soon but . too soon, but funny as hell
  6. My biggest regret is recommending the site to a few people. I feel responsible, but I really shouldn't.
  7. Totally moronic statement. It's no different than buying off of Ebay or the classifieds on thousands of different forums or a million other places online. You go by credibility, reputation, feedback,etc and if it all appears good it usually is. This site had all of that and operated for 10 yrs. in good standing. And since your statement indicates that you obviously don't have a clue about any of the history of the site or person we're talking about I would suggest not making yourself look any more asinine than you already have.I couldn't agree more
  8. masters payouts are terrible Terrible meaning they don't/won't/take a long time to pay? Or terrible in % kept/commish fee/only top 2 paid? Just curious, am desperately looking for something like Mike's site to join.. they barely pay 50% back on the cheaper leagues
  9. This is my guess, as well. Dailys are crushing it, and I know several people dropping the head-to-head leagues to concentrate on FanDuel. Great time to walk away with everyone's investment. Serious question...what's to stop FanDuel or any of the other dailys from doing the same thing. Granted you wouldn't have the time invested but what if, after they collected a bunch of deposits at the beginning of the year they just closed up shop and bailed with people's cash? Hard to trust any website tied in any way to gambling. DFS sites are required by law to keep player funds separate from operating costs. As opposed to required by industry convention, or required by a promise they made on their own website. Also, FD and DK raised over $100m in venture capital between them this past offseason. They're not small operations. The sheer size alone offers some protections- just like you are probably safe leaving your money with a Vegas casino while you go gamble with their chips. Thanks for this info, Adam! Does anyone have information on how much we can trust LeagueSafe, or the various smaller DFS sites? I think sites are going to have to be up front and transparent as to how they are handling player money in the future. I'm leery as can be at this point.
  10. You aren't kidding. 24 hours and his dad's phone number was posted. Seriously though, I don't think contacting his dad is cool.I agree, but I'm not losing thousands of dollars either.
  11. His dad sounds like he's done very well. Is Mike the black sheep of the family?
  12. He was a long time board member (Unlucky) here at FBG. He started running leagues largely composed of guys that posted here. I can't remember the details, but he was a staff member for a bit. You would have to asked Joe or David for details there. I interacted with him a bunch. Seemed a solid guy and he built a great reputation here among board members. Hence, a guy like me isn't going to be so quick to condemn the guy. I'm not trying to excuse the guy's actions, but my default setting is going to be that he did something stupid and just flushed his life down the toilet. I understand why people would want to quickly condemn the guy as a thief, but someone like myself or Bri who have been around for a long time are going to withhold judgment without knowing more. I'm not excusing his actions because I don't really know what those actions were. Do I feel for guys that might be out $100 bucks? Sure. Some might be even out more than that. That blows and you have my sympathies, but like I said my default is that Mike did something stupid and his life is a heck of a lot worse than it was a year ago. How can any of us know for certain? I certainly don't. this sums up me pretty well too at this point
