    Again, I'm not trashing SBR for this. If anyone looks at my posting history an can sort through the Fly Me posts, you'll see I'm not overly critical of SBR. What is frustrating is a year ago when this started, we were all heavily promised all this would be sorted out and working by the football contest this year. We're no closer to whatever the SBR vision is (because certainly the posters don't know what said vision is, at this point I can only presume the SBR owners/brass/mods also do not know) then we were a year ago.

    I don't need free stuff. Sure, I like the SBR sportsbook, but I don't need point redemption. They matter little in my day to day life. I'm not even mad about points no longer being redeemable. The problem is a lot of us have been waiting around for a year because you guys kept telling us all this would be sorted out by the football contest this year. Now we're part way through that and it's absolutely clear there's no resolution in sight for...... whatever it is you guys are doing.

    I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed.

    The long con is coming to a head.

    they want everyone to leave and join them next door where youíll now get coins and
    the scheme can restart.

    [QUOTE=blankoblanco;31049734]Suggestion: Hold some cash prize contests with betpoint buy-ins. Would thin the field, retain some actual point value, and make it so we're not always competing against a bunch of randoms with 0 pts who never post or contribute

    Best idea yet to come out of this abortion.

    i would like that. weekly football pools where you pick all games against the spread. do it with nba on certain nights with a lot of games and NHL also. then i can win cash to my paypal account. would be fun.

    SBR swag lol, I left all of that in the room after a bash under the old regime. Guess the new guys got some of that stuff when they bought the place.

    I mean, obviously you've been over there and know it's all the same players. No? I don't even know how I stumbled upon the site. But when I saw the same mods and a bunch of the same folks, I was dubfounded.

    Texas doesn't allow sports betting but they do allow daily fantasy. If the points system means DraftKing points or DK dollars then this is awesome! I like where this is going. I hope everyone gets to take advantage of this. I know some c might be in a "dry" state. I love you SBR! Thank you and look forward to hearing more in the coming weeks.

    To my SBR broes - give them a chance. Maybe you will like this way better than before. These guys could of just yanked all the points away and called it a day. I know some of you have way more points than I do so obviously you're way more invested in this outcome. That said, let's support the new SBR and something tells me we will all benefit in the end. I love you. Go Astros!

    And in case the announcement does not get the message across clearly, the intention is still to provide the same level of value for betpoints in the end.
    Being able to trade in our betpoints for trips or a bash would be a great option for posters. Trading in points for buy-ins to major poker tournaments or B&M betting contests would be cool also, and great publicity for the site if a poster was able to take down something like a WSOP event or Circa survivor contest.

    Free plays at legal sportsbooks are only hope at this point.

    Make every cash contest have a betpoint buyin.

    Thanks for the update, looking forward to see the new structure. Sorry to hear about the store, but it was great for many years, lots of bitcoin + lots of gift cards over the years, was fantastic while it lasted! Regardless of what happens going forward, have had a great time with the site over the past 10 or so years!

    I'm confused -- is there a new update on the store or plans for SBR? I don't see any new pinned threads or anything. Inquiring minds want to know!

    This could actually work out. I travel to legal betting states regularly so as long as SBR isn't restricting based on poster location, we should be good.

    all my betpoints can be yours for $50 amazon credit

    heck of a deal since we should be good

    i know it was against the rules to sell points here, but now that they're worthless it should be OK

    What a joke...

    ...of course can't say I'm surprised (remember Betislands and SBR's role? What can anyone expect from such an outfit? Definitely nothing that's going to be good for you, haha). I've seen stuff like that in the crypto world. They scam you out of your coin under some bullshit reason, then close shop and reopen under a different platform/name/sinister plan, so they can do it again later. Except doing it again doesn't work for proven frauds when your customers are self-respecting individuals. They will not be back! But when your target audience are degenerate gamblers, you can f*ck them over any amount of times... and they will like it (proof is already in this thread)!

    For these Cash contests please give us crypto/gift card options as payouts. The whole reason why I liked the store was because Paypal was a no-go for me.

    I will sell 12,000 points for $100 crypto. I am not located in a state that has legalized sportsbooks so it could be of better use for you guys. It looks like they are heading in that direction to trade in points for US sports book giftcards.

    well nobody is paying for ratings over here, so they don't really have much money

    not sure why anyone thought they could pay off all of these points... how many points in total are floating around out there?
