Good to see that you've got most of whats owed to you now, best of luck with the rest of it.

Maybe. Didn't take me years of posting an inflated record before I learned basic math atleast.

Just apologize to him. The post was right above your silly insult.

Re: Survivor Pool Manager Won't Pay

He's already contacted some of the people in the pool putting himself in the worst possible position. I'm struggling to understand your interjection other than exhibiting your fundamental misunderstanding of how to read threaded conversations.

Re: Survivor Pool Manager Won't Pay

Everyone screws up. You decided to insult swoopAE without bothering to read what he wrote.

It's not like it's a secret. Just admit it and move on. Why double and triple down on stupid?

Re: Survivor Pool Manager Won't Pay

Please quote what he actually wrote that I was responding to rather than quoting a bunch of stuff out of order to be intentionally deceptive.

I've already apologized to him for his slow payment due to living under a pseudonym. I am fine admitting when I'm in error.

Re: Survivor Pool Manager Won't Pay

UPDATE MAY 28, 2017

Partner received an email saying final payment will be good to go on Wednesday May 31. We have a signed but undated check for final payment. Finger crossed this whole thing will come to an end, then I can go on to smash the Colossus!

If pool manager offers free entry into 2017/18 pool, how would you respond? I think we say, "Thank you" and move forward...

Re: Survivor Pool Manager Won't Pay

UPDATE MAY 30, 2017

We just heard from the slow paying Mutha Fukker who runs the pool. He said check should be ready for cashing by Thursday June 1st.

Getting slow paid sucks beyond belief, especially when the person doing the slow paying keeps changing dates.

I think we have to keep playing nice for now.

He is still communicating with us which is a good sign, but it's clear he is having some serious financial problems...

Word to all the kids out there, be very careful what football pools you join...

Re: Survivor Pool Manager Won't Pay

UPDATE JUNE 2, 2017

Received final payment yesterday.

The pool manager has offered to send us an additional 1k for all the hassles of getting slow paid.

It appears that the extra 1k is partly to stop us from discussing/emailing/announcing that we got slow paid.

While it was awesome to win, it turned into a major hassle, with more than one slightly heated conversation with partners about to how best to handle getting slow paid.

Thanks to all who provided genuine ideas, suggestions, etc...

Congrats on finally getting paid.

Not sure if I would take the extra 1k but either way I think you still have to tell others of your experience with this guy.
