SBR and the IFBC have gone VIRAL! We're worldwide, bitches! Great event, awesome people, and a bit of drama! Check out the feeding frenzy ... 

You may have heard ... or maybe not, but there has been a lot of hubbub surrounding the IFBC2017 (International Football Betting Conference) that we just put on, in particular,  the interview that we set up with Clay Travis and Johnny 'Football' Manziel. 

TMZ, ESPN, CBS Sports, Bleacher Report and about a hundred and ten thousand medium to small sized sports media publications have picked up the story of Manziel at Sportsbook Review's first ever, IFBC!

 

 

The Feeding Frenzy

ESPN continues to absolutely abhor Johnny Football and anything he is involved with. They criticized everything from our host/comedian's taste in jokes —FYI, ESPN, You were not F%amp;amp;ing there, so you have ZERO context; we invited you, but you declined ... your loss— to Johnny Manziel attending a gig at a football betting conference and pretty much anything and everything he said. 

However negative the 'Worldwide Leader in Sports' reporting might be, WE LOVE IT! You're putting the spotlight on us, ESPN ...  we WIN!

 

And let me derail a bit here with a little editorial note from someone who was at the event and spent time with Johnny Football — Manziel was very sober, very humble, very friendly and very open & forthcoming in conversations with pretty much everyone around, including complete strangers that were simply SBR guests at the IFBC2017. He spoke often of his dedication to getting back into the NFL, and physically, he looked ready to do so.

International Guests

We were so happy with the IFBC turnout, not only were the presenters amazing, but our guests were also freaking awesome people! and we had a few that hopped some pretty big puddles to get down here to Costa Rica!

Into the Endzone

The guys from Into The Endzone, a British-based NFL/American football internet publication also made it down. I had a chance to hang out with these two mates and had a good, long drunken conversation about football, American & UK politics, gun control ... and a few other fun topics for the slightly (or very) inebriated.  Guys, thanks for coming down and helping make this thing fully global!

Special Thanks

A big thank you to Skip Bayless for all of your sh*t talking on the UNDISPUTED worst sports podcast on air. Thank you to all of the major publications who have been citing ESPN as the source of this event. Thank you ESPN, for taking quiet credit for the excellent content we provided. A REAL thank you to Clay Travis @Outkick for doing an excellent job interviewing Johnny Manziel and also for blowing up major media networks like those mentioned above for their not so awesome reporting. Thanks to the guys at B/R for actually taking the time to amend their article after I informed them that ESPN was NOT present at the IFBC. Johnny Manziel, thanks for coming down; it was fun! A huge thanks to all of the presenters involved and the SBR community who attended ...

... And thank YOU, reader, for already planning on coming to the next IFBC in 2018!
