    Are there any sites out there that do NOT allow site employees to play cash games? I’m looking for a 3rd site and I’d greatly appreciate the feedback. Thanks in advance.

    True, but you completely nailed it 2 years ago. You deserve some credit for that.

    Actually, you deserve the credit for bumping this thread. I had no idea where it went, lol. I just want the industry to strive and continue to grow. Hopefully, there will be a resolution soon.

    .005% of the industry that wins all the cash?

    Notice how he doesn’t actually deny that it does or could happen, his only reasoning was that only a tiny percentage of people could benefit so no one should care. What an odd point.

    I think it is unfair to bash Dan for these comments from a few years ago. Not many people had the data from recent surveys revealing that 1% (or was it 3%) of the users win 97% of the cash.

    Not sure it’s unfair, but wasn’t bashing anyways. Just a weird comment. He doesn’t say, “this does not, cannot, happen” he says no one should care because only .005% of players would benefit from doing it. That is a strange point to make.

    And it had nothing to do with the % of people who profit, that was the other guy’s comment ON Dan’s comment.

    Would love to know all of the site executives screen names on all of these sites, if the guy from FD is killing it on DK you have to wonder how many other top minds at these sites (not just the big 2) are out there winning the money.

    This is great, how about the “other” guys? So many people, so little information!

    There are lots of site employees who double up as successful DFS players. It’ll be interesting to see how sites handle what will apparently be a conflict of interest moving forward.

    Well, thanks, but I can’t even take credit for it. Some guy posted the link on Twitter. Can’t remember who at the moment.

    wondering how many of these “winning” DFS employees/pros will quit their job due to the fact they can not play for cash on other sites.

    What I would like is a list of all the sites employees (with access to this type of data) screen names.

    Is that too much to ask?

    Not at all. If a site comes out and convinces me that no one who plays DFS has access to their player and contest data (like FantasyFeud did in this thread 2 years ago), I’ll be putting my money on their sites and taking it off of the others.

    I’m surprised none of the smaller sites have taken advantage of this situation. I would think someone would announce a policy of not allowing any of their employees to play on other sites and that they are updating the terms of their site to not allow employees of any other DFS site to play.
