Crystal ball time
I don’t pick teams ….Team Pepsi – Team Coke ….Team Democrat – Team Republican …..Team FanDuel – Team DraftKings ….but I can’t imagine FanDuel retains their current position in the market 5 years from now. With all the new stuff coming aboard (Yahoo, ESPN, etc) in the near future, the site’s limitations will become more and more of a problem. And I know, I know ….“changes don’t happen over night”, and “I don’t think people understand what it takes to recode things” …but you can’t keep making excuses over large periods of time as to why your site and it’s technology is light years behind. FD is the ‘big dog’ in the market and you can’t even use their site to monitor live game activity? Well, I guess you can, but you can punch yourself in the face too, doesn’t make it a good idea. Takes 30 times longer to enter contests, no ‘in-the-lineup’ indicator in the player pool, no opponent SP information displayed, etc. Now, I’m an idiot, and FD could literally be rolling out monstrous upgrades tomorrow and I would have no idea. But if not, you can’t just keep stankin up the joint with a poor product and hope to retain status. The player volume and ‘brand value’ alone won’t be able to keep the ship afloat long-term.
