The witch hunt after Luca was pretty crazy, but honestly, he could have handled it better himself. I didn't follow closely, but it was blatantly obvious the issue. His overall betting record didn't accurately reflect his results for premium picks (picks that his subscribers pay for). So when analyzing if his paid service was worth it, he didn't really have the numbers for it. Someone did the numbers and it wasn't worth it because a lot of his "free picks" or picks that weren't part of the paid service were the ones doing well. The theory being that those have no bearing on what you pay for. His premium picks were essentially underperforming to be worth the price. All of that made sense, and he could have easily accepted it. He could have said something such as 2014 was rough on most bettors (true from what I've seen), and that he was going to watch his picks more closely. Basically something along the lines of his premium record would mirror his overall record more in 2015, maybe by not giving out as many "free picks" or make his "free picks" more risky or where he sees less value. Maybe say something such as a lot of his free picks were often the ones with most value as he didn't want to give out wrong picks. He'd need to restructure, etc. It was the first year, still learning process, etc. Instead, he went full denial mode and often never really addressed the issue. He basically called everyone haters and danced around the topic. It was a really bad look.
