Please investigate:

ElGuApO91
takada
Sticksta13
jea22




These users have rediculously high $$$ after taking Cro Cop vs. Sanchez bets at rediculous odds like, for example Jea22 had $1 on Mirko vs. $500 on Sanchez. Likely sock-puppet or friends' accounts for some or all of these users.

Thank you.

I haven't looked these users up so I won't do it unless I look them up specifically.... but, when you look at a user there is an option to report them. This is the only way for us to keep this site clean from the begininng.... **** all the trolls that have invaded all the other sites. The betting I think makes it easier for us to see than, say number of posts-- as in sites that posts are all you can look at. I for one am all in favor of reporting not only trolls, but more specifically ppl trying to "juice" accounts. In one way this site is serious for those of us that are serious about our mma and our betting (even when it is fantasy dollars), and yet it's also only fantasy dollars... so why would one find it necassary to "juice" a fantasy account? I think it's just bored assholes. I encourage the reporting of them. I want to really see how I do vs others, and now against odds. I don't care how I do, I just want the numbers to be as accurate as possible... how did I do vs how did you do.

But yeah, long story short... when you see that shit, report them. Get them out of here. Let the trolls know right away, this ain't sherdog or mmaweekly this is a much more serious site.

I don't think it matter how much money they have, it comes down to points which they can't abuse. You can buy $1,000 wager dollar for $20.00(real money).

My bad, didn't see the "report user" icon down there.

Not trying to be an a-hole (or dickhead ), just trying to help ya'll narrow down a few suspect individuals since I know running a fantasy league is a very taxing job and it's tough to make sure everyone is on the up and up.

Great league here and can't wait for the next few events!

Not taking you as a dick. I'm trying to help this site stay clean, and I think you are too. And yes dollars do matter. Points are one way of ranking, dollars are another. Based on the way we do things here they can easily come up with 2.. 3.. 4.. maybe more ways of ranking us. All of them should be kept as clean as possible by as many of us as possible.

Yeah exactly. What's to stop me from creating 4 other accounts and creating bogus wagers with myself on my real account? This site could never be cheat-proof and still have the same freedom in the wagering system as there is now.

People who do stuff like that will probably get bored fast. Why cheat a "fantasy" game.

Sticksta13 bet his own teammate 10 dollars vs 400 that Mirko would win. Lame cheating bet. It has already been reported.

Oh dear oh dear, I didn't think our leader would do something like that (Not saying it's true but it does look like it could be a feeder) but that's life I guess

The only way you can win the $500 is have the most points not dollars, you can buy wager dollars. Having more dollars just means you made good bets, same goes for all the other rankings. The only ranking that matters is how many points you have, that's why it's on the home page. Who cares if someone cheats to get more fantasy dollars?

The fact that this site is run off of "donations" that can get you more betting money, hurts the site when people cheat like that.

Also, it is just sad that some people are always trying to glitch their way thru...
