I'm owed 66k. I didn't know this thread was going up so fast.. I wanted a chance to talk to Erick before this was posted but I understand why those involved wanted to post as soon as they did.

I do want to say one thing for Eric. He has historically paid any debts we've had in due time, typically 5-6 months later. Yes, it was annoying, but I want to make sure people don't just assume he's a scumbag who welches on debts. I think he fully intends to pay the debts he owes and I hope he pays them very soon.

if he can't pay back 50 k imagine the bigger loan he can't pay.

full tilt pros are all broke cause their bankroll disapeared in one day.

No. He should be selling assets (car, house, stock etc.) or have his backer loan him $ to settle up.

What can he really say? I can understand someone taking a little time to get the cash together/getting payment options in place, but 3 months after the bet comes due? Especially when players owed have obviously requested it multiple times.

These players are basically giving him an interest free loan, and he appears to still be wagering that "loaned" money.

If anyone wants to loan me 120K, interest free for 3-6 months, I'd be happy to take it. I'll even pay you back, when I'm not cash broke.

I don't that taking so much time is ok, its def not, but there are still a significant difference between a delay and a refusal to pay.

Eh, maybe on a loan but these were fantasy leagues (with I assume some side betting going on as well week-to-week). When you sign up to play a 4-5 digit buyin Fantasy Football league you are expected to pay when the season is over (and, really, you have about 5 months during the season to get the money together). Sounds like no one in this case was trying to extend any credit to Lindgren and ended up being forced to do just that.

When its over 150k get a lawyer imo- i think he has a house- his assets are defo over 150k- if anything u guys now deserve interest on the amount as well.

I have been emailing with him back and forth. Contemplating whether or not to post the conversation here. It's pretty tilting.
