The Stu Feiner Story
The likes of Vegas Dave and Steve Stevens are small potatoes in comparison to the legendary Stu “The Source” Feiner. The self-proclaimed “greatest Sports Handicapper ever” is the OG (Original Gangster) when it comes to scamming people on the internet.
Stu was a notorious player in the handicapping industry in the pre-Internet era. He was featured in a Sports Illustrated article in 1991 titled: “1-900 Ripoffs“. He agreed to allow SI to document his NFL picks for four weeks, but after going just 19-32 for a win rate of just 37 percent, SI exposed him for falsifying his records.
Back in February of 1990, he was fined $13,000 by the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs for false and misleading advertising. Perhaps the funniest story exposed by SI was when Feiner’s brother-in-law Kevin Duffy ran an ad in the New York Daily News bragging about his winning picks in Week 1. The funny part was that the ad was published before the games were actually played.
Two For The Money – Stu Feiner Movie
You know you’re famous when they make a movie based on your life story, and Al Pacino plays the part of you. Well, that’s exactly what happened in the Hollywood film Two For The Money starring Al Pacino and Matthew McConaughey.
The film was based on the story of former college football star Brandon Lang, who aligns himself with one of the most renowned touts in the sports-gambling business (Feiner).
In real life, Stu Feiner is nothing like Al Pacino or the character portrayed in the film. Stu would be more similar to Will Ferrell, and his character of “Hank The Tank” in the movie Old School. The movie is only loosely based on a true story, and the tactics used by the characters in the movie are rarely seen in this day and age.
Barstool Sports Advisors
Founder Dave Portnoy is a controversial figure, who has been personally attacked by the Daily Beast, the Washington Post, and New York Magazine.
All three detail how Portnoy’s Barstool makes a business out of harassing women and others who criticize the site enlists its fans to do the same and refuses to back down. So perhaps it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that he happily promotes the most notorious scammer the sports betting industry has ever seen.
While Portnoy might not (yet) be selling Feiner’s services, he is giving him a platform to promote his services offered at his website. You would think that in 2020 with the resources available to bettors, it would be hard for guys like Stu Feiner to fool anyone.
Well, you know what they say, “There’s a sucker born every minute”.
