    I will be taking an indefinite leave from posting on the non-picks portion of the RX forum. Specifically, the offshore forum.

    When it get's to the point where you post a bad beat and guys are saying "this is as good as it gets", then I have no reason to be posting on here.

    I never attacked anyone and I was always 100 percent honest in everything I said (even though I get called an idiot and a liar daily). I admit on my first few weeks on the forum, I said some stupid things trying to make a splash. But since then I feel 100% confident that I have had insightful comments and I have positively contributed to the discussion and to the activity on this forum. So I guess it comes down to "Why do I post on here". None of my friends gamble, so it is really nice to talk to people who understand it, and I think the mod's are great. But to be blunt, there are a lot of assholes on here that make it not worth it. I have no personal issues with anyone here, as I assume if you met most of these guys in person they wouldn't act like they do online.

    I wish everyone the best in the coming year both personally and professionally and I'm sure I will run into some of you in the picks portions of this website.

    Stop being a drama queen.

    Take your losses like a man, suck it up and come back with a winner the next day.

    Enjoy your break!

    tough beat, but nothing that doesn't happen 10-15 times a year if you bet almost everyday.

    I read that thread and I'm not sure why anyone said it wasn't a pretty bad beat or mocking it. It definitely was up there...

    I think the thread was maybe a case of your rep preceding you.

    I notice in a lot of threads you'll have the same opinion as someone else but the poster who you are disagreeing with will single you out instead of the other guy cause it is just kinda easier for everyone to be like "Oh it is JustinCruise, haha tool" and get people on that bandwagon.

    Spice it up Justin, name the "assholes" on your way out! (If I'm in there I can take it as long as its a big group)

    I am Jeremy Schapp here to report that RX poster Justin Cruise is calling a press conference at approximately 2:00 PM Eastern Standard Time on sunday. There are a wide range of possibilities as to the reson why. He may be providing details about his abrupt firing from his job, but it is widely beleived he will be sitting down to tell the world that he is taking his talents to the "costa rica chit chat forum" or maybe the "politics forum" or he maybe the Euroleague forum, this guy has so many talents, it is hard to tell where he will land but one thing is for certain, wherever he goes, if he says he has a 'bad beat", it is best to reassure him he does.

    Back to you Boom. I am Jeremy Schapp, ESPN.

    Justin I don't dislike you bet you make it too easy sometimes.
    Everyday I say to myself I'm going to leave you alone and let you be. But every single time I do that you do something that forces me to jump right back in.
    who cares if not everyone does not agree that was a bad beat. Does everyone have to agree with everything you say in order for us to be worthy of your presence?

    i have had no less then 200 bets in my lifetime equal or worse then what happened to you last night. But that's not even the point.

    Disagreements on forums happen. No need to cry about it and run off.

    To be fair. I dont think people should bash when a play loses.. its bad enough when you lose a game and your pocketbook and heart gets broken.

    On that same note, this is probably the very reason why it is strongly not recommended to post plays in a non sports section.... your kinda asking for extra fuel to be added to a win and certainly in a loss.

    I think it would be best if you kept plays off the offshore and let everyone settle down on this. I would never encourage others to bash or kick someone while they are down and I hope it doesn't go on much longer to be honest...

    Completely agree with the bold part. as I was reading thread last night, I was thinking "who gives a shit if you consider it a bad beat". the kid lost a decent amount of cash.

    Murph I don't think anyone was bashing justing because his play lost. Like many have said bad beats do happen quite often.

    IMO people were more or less commenting on Justin's posting behavior. Not his plays.

    I'm just hoping his next post isn't saying He just took the worst bad beat ever and found out theres no Santa Clause.

    lighten up Francis....

    I dont even dislike you at all, but i know this is how these boards are...even if u post picks, you'll have a group of people rooting for you and sharing in the fun and another group just hoping you lose......maybe its just things are so bad for them, they hope other people are just as miserable, i dont know.....but its not worth getting upset over......this is a big dysfunctional family and even though they are your family, you still have the weird cousin who eats bugs, and the crazy uncle who is psycho.....just gotta deal with it..

    but one thing is for sure on these boards, anytime someone has to MAKE A THREAD to tell you they are leaving, then they are wanting attention........( unless they say goodbye and leave, which never happens )

    don't take this place too seriously, and sometimes a sense of humor translates poorly when typed as opposed to spoken

    +1. Nobody was bashing his play at all.

    People were bashing his whining that it was a bad beat.

    i think playing the moneyline when your team is laying 2.....is a horrendous move. Laying more juice is never a smart move. Better off laying 2 and if your team wins by 1....just deal....if you're looking to win long term....it's a bad move.

    agreed.....and in reverse, would i rarely ever take 2 in a basketball game...would rather have the +115 or +120 instead.......yeah, once in a blue moon you'll lose by (1), but the + money on all those bets make up for the rare loss by doing it
