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.

Gangster dolphins
Marine biologists studying Australian dolphins discovered that the mammals form complex hierarchies within their pods in order to attack other groups. Some individuals serve as fighters. Others serve as liaisons to go out and recruit new members. These "intricate webs" are rare in the animal kingdom, says Virginia Morell at Wired, and strikingly reminiscent of "the Mafia."

I blame Snoop Dog.

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.
