    Ever had a run in with this guy? Sports102.com Barry Grubb LineCrusher.com

    I know this guy from back in the 80's in Vegas. I have spent thousands with him over the years and won a lot of money. He is good. Really good. He wins. But he is a rooster_eater. He recently shut my account off with no notice. Will not talk to me. Will not answer email. I know what he does. He gets you in cheap. Then, he personally telephones you himself for the big bucks. If you say no he shuts your account off and will not talk to you. He is a rooster_eater. Beware

    I have actually spoken to Barry in the past, his Linecrusher model used to be available for sale online and it indeed was really, really good. Then he privatized it and went pure tout. I found the program itself much more useful back in the day than his picks themselves.

    Needs to be updated every year, so no updates for at least the last 10 years I think.

    From my dealings with Barry, I actually think that what the OP said in Post 1 is spot on. More of a warning against than a promotion for.

    "He is good. Really good. He wins."

    Yup, sounds like a warning to me...

    You guys don't get it. This guy never called anyone. He was eccentric and did not give a sh*t who he offended. People that knew him know what I am saying. Not a fan but just saying

    Did the same to me

    I signed up and prepaid in full for a $495 "lifetime" subscription to his service & he cancelled me for no reason. He is a good handicapper, but he is scummy.
