    I self-excluded on DK, and I’m still upset. I’m most upset by people outside of the industry commenting on things they don’t understand (such as Yahoo article comments).

    Check Tanner’s IG. The photo of him with the sign saying Fantasy football stuff is there. She comments with the context that the question was “what does your husband do that you hate?” That was just 8 weeks ago. Pretty clear that she’s not a Grinder.

    It’s way too hard to police all the cheaters in DFS. Sucks having to compete against all of them. I try to stay in single entry contests. But I would like to see more live drafts. Maybe for football, DK can host live contests at the DK bar every Sunday or something like that. More live tourneys would weed out alot of the cheaters, in my opinion anyway.

    For the bigger cities anyways. I know this would not be relevant for people in smaller towns/cities. I’m in Chicago, I would think they could get a good showing every week.

    Lol… “let’s grind the optimizers together” may have just become code for something else in our household…

    I do agree that competing against ‘syndicates’ sucks. And I also do the single entry/3 max thing. I’d suggest, though, that I do not think policing the cheaters is too hard. I’m a compliance manager in the pharmaceutical industry, and I’d imagine the means of ensuring transparency in your product is similar across industries…you have transfers of value, piles of data that tell the story of each one, and automation + operators flagging suspicious trends in the data. For sure, it’s required to properly staff the department and develop meaningful procedures to enforce your regulations…The Pharmaceutical industry (hated as it is) is (justifiably) heavily regulated…DFS? Not as much.
