    So if I'm in a state that does not have sports gambling, are my Bet Points worthless?

    Considering the top 3 states by population (California, Texas, Florida) don't have legalized sports gambling, what's the point (pun intended)? With no store, i.e. bitcoin/giftcards, points are worthless for a large majority. If I want a fukn' hat I'll buy one.

    Look. My only issue is this: IF this was a limited reopening of the store then just say that & donít run out of things in 4 hours. Also, youíre running bet point contest for fantasy football participants then pay out via PayPal like youíre doing in other contests. Just very disappointing especially for guys who donít have legalized sports betting.

    Does feel like the rug has been pulled out a little bit. Some people have been here from the 90s. That's like internet stone age. Relic or not SBR needs to be preserved with some added value.

    When a company or entity is sold, the assets and liabilities are part of the negotiations. One of two things happened.

    1. The old SBR threw us under the bus by slashing or drastically discounting the value of the store/points as part of
    original negotiations

    or

    2. The new SBR owner's due diligence underestimated the value of the point system and are now backpedaling
    on their original commitment to honor existing points. They are now scrambling to put together a plan that would
    pacify membership.

    Either way, given the total lack of transparency over the past 13 months, we will never know what really happened. They have put the mods in a shitty situation.

    Business is business, welcome to the world of corporate America.

    We went from, the store is temprorarily closed to the store will open and your points can be redeemed, the store is closed again after 3 days run out of stock, the store will be closed permanently and your points may worth something in the future.

    What a disaster!

    Not sure about the current financial situation, but regardless of profitability, it has to be said that John & the previous owners were extremely generous.

    there was a lot of time and money put into the old bashes

    from the paid airfare meet n greets free booze flowing everywhere poker tourneys, golf tourneys and giant dinner banquets

    what SBRJohn did was truly amazing like Gino said and could not expect to be duplicated

    what new ownership has done is pretty unbelievable too!

    freeplays in domestic books should be the most logical and easiest way to make bet points valuable until the rest is built up. that really should start asap.

    as for those without legalized betting, you need to give them something. maybe betpoints to paypal cash.

    My pro membership is up this month and I don't see the point of staying a pro anymore. Just to participate in a few contests? Hardly makes sense. Since the purchase this place has changed so much. All the push toward the legal books yet whomever bought this place really hasn't done much to improve it and has done mostly things to make it worse for us members.

    It isn't going to cost you anything apart from 1500 betpoints, which would end up with no value if you do not renew.

    No reason not to that I can see.

    I mean if youre going to leave the site and focus on other things sure but with the minimal betpoints needed why not bet on the come and stay a Pro? What else would your existing points be used for? use the points go PRO and if frustrated with the place check in 6 months and see whats up? I dont see a downside.


    I guess those of us willing to be in for the long haul and the mentioned potential would want less PROS, less competition for the few PRO money contests underway (next one is world cup something or another) but seems you as a long time great member should stick it out! maybe at some point SBR bling will be a collectable some day. lol. Or there is some way they actually set up some points paid forum contests for prizes. or use in sportsbooks if your state is in play. Who knows? Just not much downside.

    SBR may be waiting to reopen. 80% of posters will lose all points in one six months.
