Today we received information about David Glisan and a failed business venture in which a handful of former handicapping clients invested money. This was quite awhile ago, and no clients from Pregame.com were involved. We've received no proof of any wrong-doing, and David has committed to personally paying back the full amount of the investments.

In some ways, this goes above and beyond - i.e., personally paying back a failed investment. But in another way, it's not enough. For the sports betting industry to go mainstream, we must accept that the shady history of the industry requires even a higher standard than other industries.

For Pregame.com, our standard is to ensure a ZERO PERCENT CHANCE of a customer ever being wronged. It's impossible to guarantee sports betting profit, but a customer can be 100% sure when using the Pregame.com platform that he will get exactly what he is promised - that he will NEVER be wronged.

An investment not working out is always possible - as is the parties disagreeing about who is to blame. Although I personally believe David had the best of intentions, and even though this occurred before his time at Pregame, he created a situation in which a customer reasonably felt wronged. And even though this was not a Pregame.com customer, and as much as I personally like David, I value the ideal of the customer never being wronged NO MATTER WHAT too much not to take action. 

I believe David has significant expertise to offer the community, and I hope he will continue doing so - but starting now it will not be as a Pregame.com pick seller.

This is a very interesting post. They seem to be some very upset people when it comes to business relationships with David. I hope it all gets worked out amicably for everyone.

Does this mean he will also no longer be on the First Preview radio show??  Seemed that a big investment in building his brand was being attempted.

It seems his previous gig "across the street" has severed all ties with David.

You are right, Brian . . . we have made a big investment in David. The quickness and severity of our action should communicate clearly our focus on providing our customers with a zero doubt environment to buy picks.
