    A Football Survivor Pool Gone Horribly Bad

    An NFL Survivor Pool with over $1 million in entry fees may have gone donk down.

    Ronandmike.com, a popular survivor pool site, has been down for some time. Its unclear if its either due to a rolling, shooting off, or a legal action by the cops

    For those who don't know what an NFL Survivor pools is, its a bet made before the year where:

    Each pool member chooses one NFL team each week.

    Picks are made "straight up", not using a point spread system.

    An incorrect pick eliminates the player from the pool for the remainder of the season, although some pools allow a "mulligan" rebuy for those teams who lose early in the season.

    If their pick is correct, they survive until the next week and the pool plays down to a winner (or winners in event of a chop).

    Did they take a cut or not?

    Feds got it: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2...federal-agents

    Interestingly, googling this story last night returned no meaningful results except this PFA thread!

    Now there are mainstream stories about this on Bleacher Report and ABC News.

    This is a better spot than had Ron and Mike stolen the money, as at least there's a chance here for people to recover funds (maybe).

    Anyone know what kind of payments they accepted?
    Crypto?

    ESPN has learned that two pools, blue and red, were each capped at close to 10,000 entries with a cost of $100 per entry. Those filled up so quickly that a second-chance pool was created, sources said, at $200 apiece. A high-roller survivor pool was also offered at $500 per entry. Another pool, which started midway through the season, was a second-half pool and cost $100 per entry.

    All the pools combined had more than 23,000 entries, players with knowledge of the contests said, with a collective value that surpassed $2.5 million.

    Not the first time something like this has happened. Maybe I should drop a dime on Mark Gregorich for his $300,000 NFL Survivor Pool?

    Not shocking to see the 2 founders are Jews. Never trust a Jew with your money!

    2 important considerations. Does he take a cut, and did he do anything in NY state? Eastern district of NY learned well from their former Southern district colleague Preet.

    Nevada, but he doesn't take a fee. So he is safe I suppose.
