    Bring back the service plays forum.

    I would really like to see Sbr bring back the service plays forum.

    There was a lot of benefit for Sbr members to see the picks from touts.

    I have spoken to several Sbr members that no longer access Sbr because the service plays forum was removed.

    Please return the service plays forum.

    Thanks

    I would like to see SBR bring back the service plays forum as well. I used to check the SBR service plays daily. Now since they discontinued the service plays forum. I'm rarely on SBR.

    The new owners do wish to be seen to be promoting the scamming tout industry in any way. And do not want to deal with the legal threats from them either.

    That section was very popular and bought many new users to the forum as well, so the decision was not taken lightly and I do not think it will ever be changed.

    Thank you for your response. I'm sorry to hear the service plays forum will not return.

    I'm surprised SBR no longer has the service plays forum. I thought it was the most visited thread? The service plays forum was my favorite forum at SBR.. Best of luck to all. I'm signing off SBR for good.

    Thanks SBR

    To Hell with what the new owners think.............This site has seen it's share of backwards decisions aplenty since the takeover.
    Bring back the Service Plays Forum.

    I think it is a poor business decision by the new ownership to discontinue the service plays thread. The threat of legal action by any handicapping service for having their sports picks posted on SBR simply has no merit unless the touts write ups for picks are being posted along with the picks.

    The traffic generated by the service plays forum far outweighs any threat of legal action by some tout.

    This will be my final SBR post. I loved SBR but the forums now have little to no value in my personal option.

    If the only reason you visited was to find free tout plays, and continued using the site that way even after you learned that touts are all scammers, then both SBR and yourself are probably both better off if you do leave zabelm.

    The only honorable reason I can see to promote touts is to attract people to help educate them to avoid touts.
