NOW………Down to business.
As of late, I’ve been doing a lot research DFS wise. Not number, not BvP, or any of your favorite stats. I’ve been diving into something WAY bigger.
DFS Ownership…More importantly…
DFS SITES SWAYING OWNERSHIP FOR GAIN.
Now…before you say, oh god, he’s crazy, he makes no sense, he’s a hater blah blah fucking blah! Understand something, I have prided myself on not being a “numbers guy’. I go by the eye test and my gut mostly. I have good conversations with people who go by the numbers, they offer their opinion, I consider it, then make my plays. If you follow me, you know a popular hashtag I use, #CriminalOwnership . In the beginning I started it as a, wow…this guy is low owned thing. But, more and more I started to see that the players I highlighted…were not mentioned by the “pros” of certain sites. In fact, it was the complete opposite.
HOLD UP…the complete opposite? That would mean, the players suggested by the “pros” were wrong. They study this shit all damn day, they pump out these videos and articles saying to play this or that. Oh… “If you don’t roster such and such tonight, quit DFS”. Needless to say, that’s odd as fuck to me. Now the #CriminalOwnsership is more about , breaking away from the “pack” and playing who makes fucking sense to me. Just so happens… they end up being suuuuper low owned … and going against the “masses” opinion of whom to play, and who not to play.
So…let’s dive a little deeper. What am I actually getting at? You need clarity?
OK…I GOT YOU.
THE SITES THAT YOU RESEARCH ON ARE FULL OF SHIT!!
Clear enough for you?
No? … OK … I GOT YOU
THE BIG SITES YOU RESEARCH ON ARE SWAYING OWNERSHIP, SO THEY CAN MAKE ALL THE MONEY, NOT YOU!
Clear enough for you?
No? … I GOT YOU
OWNERSHIP LEVELS ARE TAMPERED WITH…SO YOU CAN PLAY WHO YOU’RE TOLD TO PLAY…AND FLOP…WHILE THESE “PROS” …
MAKE SEPARATE LINES TO RAKE ALL THE MONEY.
NO? … I’ll explain
But before I do…
These opinions are my own and nobody else’s. This is not sour grapes. I’ve done quite well in DFS. I don’t play DFS for a living, I play for fun. It’s a hobby. I’m doing this to protect the people who dump their hard earned money into these “pros” and their sites, thinking they are gaining an edge, when in reality, they aren’t.
WHO IS AT FAULT?
“Pros” at RotoGrinders
Yup, I’m going there.
First off I was a huge RG fan in the beginning. I listened to the “Morning Grind” and read countless articles just learn how to be good at DFS. You can go back on my twitter, you’ll see convos between me and a few of “pros”. I used to tip RG off about frauds using their logo to get subs on Instagram. Even got a free RG shirt for the assist in that area (which I still have).
Now…i just see through bullshit effortlessly, Here’s a scenario. You get up, and listen to The Morning Grind…You start building your lines for the day off of who they said are the “plugs”. That in itself , based on the impact of RG’s content, is going to sway ownership to their suggested plays, right? Which means, when such and such hits a chalk dinger and is 37% owned, that means 37% of the people who played him will get the points. Now what if he doesn’t do jack shit? 37% of the people in that lobby take that 0. That’s HUGE!
But yet… Mysteriously the same guys who told you to play these players are still sitting at the top of the leaderboard. Why is that? OHHHHH…because they didn’t play who they told you to play…that’s why. To me, that’s fucked up!
If you represent a brand, you stand behind it.
Play the same shit you’re telling us to play. Don’t bitch out of by saying “we said, you COULD play them, not that you SHOULD”. People who play DFS want to WIN. They trust that you are giving them the best possible plays.
One of the reasons “Off the Cuff” is popular is because, I really don’t give a shit, and it shows in my writing. I don’t use proper structure, proper grammar or proper writer etiquette. But, people feel what the fuck I say, because they can relate to it. I say what everybody else wants to say and should say. In this case, the “Pros” need to be checked. Recently I saw more than a few RG pros getting roasted on twitter over plays, and backing out of contests and a lot of other shit. Why do you think that is? People are waking up, and seeing the holes.
Who am I talking about? For starts… @TheSeigeDFS .
Recently called out for backing out of a contest. More importantly I’ve seen tweets from him regarding his plays, and having to defend them to listeners of the Morning Grind (When he’s on) because once again…They were straight ass cheeks. But yet, he’ll say on the pod he had a good night lol. Like, come on bruh, keep it a stack with your listeners.
They’ll respect you more for it. I’m not the only one who feels this way either. I’m in multiple circles and group chats who pose the same questions. I could go after Stevie too, but to me, he’s more of a NASCAR guy, regardless of him playing the game (Baseball). I played too, and one of my biggest takeaways, especially when it came down to prepping for teams, numbers aren’t everything.
Hence why I say, FUCK THE NUMBERS.
Let’s be clear, I DO NOT CARE IF RG gets offended. I’m not slandering them at all. I’m simply saying, that the “Pros” that help run the “system” are suspect as hell, and it all means the bottom line for RG goes up. In terms of content consumption, we all owe it to the people to keep this as level as possible. Keep the playing field even. When Pros play with the “common folk” they drive up cash lines and make it impossible for the casual players to cash and enjoy DFS to the fullest. To me, that’s SHARK SHIT. Yea, you can respond and say, oh we never heard of you, or who you represent.
That’s cool…but I guarantee this…
YOU GONE FEEL US!!
I don’t give two dog shits about public opinion. They’re like assholes…eeeeeeeeeverybody has one. But when it comes to preserving DFS and keeping shit fun…you guys need a fucking wake-up call.
Another thing that boils my ass, are these “providers” like @RotoRadar (who I’ve supported in the past) who charge a ridiculous amount of money for subs. Like for real…a sub for MLB for a month shouldn’t be more than a prepaid phone plan in my opinion. That’s not a dig to my guys who do charge a bit more, like I said before, If I respect you, you know it. But, I see packages from people who get their asses kick on the regular, charging $90, $100, $200, $300, $400, $500 all the way up to $700 A MONTH…like wtf…That’s rent or a portion of rent for most. Who the fuck do you think you are? lol I can’t go after them the same way I can RG, because on a whole…they keep their plays to private to their subs. Which I can respect.
I can’t go after AC Karma Sports because they are QUALITY through and through. Even their free content is spot on. Way more reliable than RG. So S/O to them for being 100 with the DFS community and helping out as much as they do.
As far as all these other providers. STOP FUCKING SCAMMING THE PEOPLE. If you have been paying attention to @FanForecast , we’ve been uncovering and exposing a lot of the frauds out here. We will continue to do so , with the help of our brothers from the @ForwardMile. We owe it to the people to make the #DFS community as safe and respectable as we possibly can. Don’t buy from people who don’t have a real picture up, or can’t be traced to an actual personal account or team. Go to trusted sources such as:
@FanForecast , @DFSManu, @SantiagoLines, @FanForecastCody, @ACKarmaSports , @ArtestDFS, @MonstarsDFS, @MBSports_Guru, @DFS_ROE1_ELITE
Just to name a few!
Until next time my people!
Ya’ll keep your 1’s up aka Stay aware. Do your research, keep DFS fun and growing. And like I said before….Learn to trust your gut more when playing. Go to untapped sources , and alternate sites for your research. Most importantly, stay plugged in to @FanForecast…often imitated…
NEVER FUCKING DUPLICATED!!
