  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. I was wondering that too. My guess would be yes.
  4. Well, his rate just recently changed to 100%. Sorry if this is too soon but . too soon, but funny as hell
  5. My biggest regret is recommending the site to a few people. I feel responsible, but I really shouldn't.
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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 o
  9. 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.
  10. His dad sounds like he's done very well. Is Mike the black sheep of the family?
  11. 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 peopl
  12. Masters payouts are atrocious. I'd rather not play than play there.
  13. There are a lot of interesting posts. I honestly don't know what to think at this point. I don't see this ending well. I really think it's tough for me to trust any website now.
  14. So billing statements from thousands of customers isn't proof? I'm not really sure what you mean by this. We sent him money to hold on to for league prizes at the end of the season, he used that money for something else. That is stealing. is that stealing or mismanagement of funds/bad business decisions?
  15. Interesting. I'll be making that phone call in the next day or two for sure. sounds like we should all be on the phone
  16. A bit much? He stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from his customers. People go to jail for years for stealing much less. we have no proof that he "stole" it
  17. Right, I'm sure the first thing his lawyer told him was to not pay ANYTHING back. That would be the absolute last thing he should do. I'm sure he will use the 200-300k he has left toward legal fees. I realize now that the odds of any of us seeing any money from Mike are about 0, but I do want to see him locked up for this at this point. locked up? That seems a little much to me. Maybe I'm naive.
  18. I can understand getting rid of his accounts to avoid the flood of negative posts he was sure to receive. Using the prize money was his fatal mistake, but is it criminal? I'm not sure.
  19. Yes, baseball, basketball, and hockey leagues were available on phenoms, but football was the majority of his business.
  20. All we need now is Christo to roll his fat ### lawyer sarcasm into this thread.
  21. Also, you say if "partial prize money" isn't paid? So paying folks 20-40% is good enough in your view and absolves him? That is insane. Serious question...is using prize money to develop the site a crime or just bad business? I'm not an ambulance chasing lawyer so I don't know the answer.
  22. It's easy to just pile on and call him a crook instead of actually using your brain. Mike has earned the benefit of the doubt to me. If partial prize money, keeper deposits, and basketball entry fees aren't paid, then I will lead the charge against him. Until then, I'm taking a wait and see approach.
