Really you guys are doing a great job of ruining this site which was great when I joined just over a year ago..

Specifically why was this thread closed with NO reason given -

RJ will politely refer to the Pregame constitution which he has every right to do.

One big problem with your post...........

RJ and JD aren't ruining the site.

The number of douchebags here has grown by leaps and bounds.

RJ really needs to do more about it though..........This site hasnt been the same in nearly 2 years.

I hope we can make it great again, it was so good when it was good

What needs to be changed is the titles of picks sold by pros. I'm tired of reading posts bitching about losing a GOY or MAX BOMB. Stop allowing these titles = problem solved. Preaching money management and allowing these types of titles is hypocritical. Just make pros list plays as 1, 2 or 3 units, which is what is SUPPOSED to be going on here anyway. Make the pros get customers with reputation and work instead of being the best title writer.

Of course Billy, but I don't know what rule was broken in my thread that was locked - it was just locked for no reason.

Also the thread that Lloyd made to say adios was locked for no reason - yet a tout is allowed to make up soccer records in a big thread in the Other Sports Forums and constantly promote his 'packages' (which are sold outside of Pregame) and his thread is allowed to stay open, I guess the site bosses like the traffic so that one is allowed to slide

I too hope that the site returns to the way it was, it's my favourite site on the internet bar none... but it's not that way now, and these threads being locked has left a bitter taste in many peoples mouths

Totally agree with what you said in your post but that's an issue for the pros I was talking about threads being locked for no reason - at least 3 so far have been locked, this one will be too i'm sure

Mainly because soon as the thread goes off topic, becomes personal, etc it will be locked. Sorry, I am doing 7 days a week and around 50-60 or more hours of Pregame time. I sometimes spend a few hours JUST trying to answer emails. To continually monitor posts and police things is not something either of us (RJ) have the added time for. If adults can't discuss things without another adult having to supervise, it will be closed.

The posts and anti-Pregame or anti-Pro stuff we allow due to trying to have an open community would never even make the forums at any site with any type of traffic. Most picks sites to do even have a forum! The ones that do, go and try to post anything resembling what we allow here. Shit, try and see if the handicappers you are buying even interact with the community.

I have three kids and a wife and run a full time internet based business. Thanksgiving and Friday after I spent on my iPhone answering emails and moderating. Part of the business. I get that. But, moderating the same thing over and over is not how I should be spending my time.

Watch the morning videos. I started off saying how Tony and Spartan lost. People should be pissed. But, with all due respect, if any GOY play or bad run breaks your bank you should not be betting or buying picks. I got ROLLED this past week. I am not happy about it. Dropped tons of F'bombs. Probably was not as nice to my wife as I should be. But it happens. The public is cleaning up the past few weeks. When that happens, for people that focus on value on lines usually have bad runs. Favorites and overs are usually not good for people that go against inflated numbers.

The recent decline and fall of Pregame has been disconcerting.  It has turned into a tout site disguised as a forum.   Quality is being sacrificed at the altar of quantity.  

I like JD a lot, I think he is solid but the buck stops with him and RJ.  Threads should not be locked due to things getting "personal"; we are not in kindergarten here.  They shouldn't have to baby-sit posters either, those posters should just be ignored.  

I follow and interact with very few posters on here for a reason; spending your time profitably is one of the keys to successful capping.  All these little girls who pull each other's pony tails on here should just be ignored.  As should these wanna-be touts who post their "locks" "GOY's" and 10,000 star bombs.  Those posts should be locked, not a valuable contributor's farewell address.

Johnny,

This was nothing to do with any losses or anything like that.. I could care less if every pro on the site lost every game they picked...

- All I asked was why my thread was locked, another thread by somebody else and most disgracefully of all why Lloyds thread was locked, that was beyond disgusting
