      2015 DraftKings FFWC Finalist

    A large group of DFSers are going to go down to Schneiderman’s office Friday at 8AM. We’ll be wearing #FantasyForAll shirts. Many will have signs. Lots of the Fanduel staff will be there as well.

    If you live in the NY area please join us!

    The idea is to get our voice heard that DFS is not this cold industry “fleecing” sports fans. It’s full of passionate players – a community of players who love to research, love to compete, and love to play this game as one of their primary hobbies.

    RSVP Link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fantasy-sports-for-all-new-york-city-rally-tickets-19516733074

    WHO: Everyone that loves fantasy and wants to continue playing in NY

    WHAT: Fantasy For All Rally

    WHERE: 120 Broadway (between Pine and Cedar)

    WHEN: Friday, 8:00 AM

    There will be media at this event so it’s a great time to have your voice heard.

    Players Conference

    Sign Up for DFS Players Conference

    We’ll go straight from this rally to the DFS Players Conference at Marriott Marquis in Times Square.

    Make sure you get the press to cover the ralley. The battle to save the game we love is taking place in NYS and everyone that can needs to get their ass to NY and tell the politicians to let us play

  • JaNelson38

    Good luck guys. Just remember to be respectful with both words and signs….don’t get on the news for something other than the cause you’re trying to promote.

    I’ll be watching from over here in Wisconsin….

  • epot

    Hope you get a good turnout! Good luck from Canada!

  • whodatjack31

    I really like the way you describe the DFS community. I really dislike how outsiders characterize us as “gamblers” who need treatment. If I were in the NYC area I’d definitely join you folks. Good luck!

  • rdlman88

    I’d love to be there! Just a short 3 hr drive from central PA for me, unfortunately I have classes… I hope this puts a positive light on our favorite hobby.

    Very good idea, and I’m proud of those who will participate. Don’t fool yourself: if the media does cover it, they will try to make you look like lunatics… don’t give them any ammunition.

    Wish I was there! Hope it’s a big turnout.

  • raiders7532

    Make sure you have signs that say “Daily Fantasy players vote”.

  • chinchilla

    Good Luck Guys. This is a great initiative. I cannot believe that this AG has the basic comprehension level of a kid.

    Awesome! Best of luck, guys! Kill him with kindness so he just doesn’t get super defensive and ego-driven!

  • nycniki111

    I would be there but physically unable , Thx to those who can , would b a shame to lose the ability to play fantasy sports

  • nickr83

    Hopefully there’s a huge turnout tomorrow morning Downtown and letting the Attorney General know how DFSers really feel about his POV. It’d also be nice if there’s a live stream or a recording of the Fanduel & DraftKings CEO one-on-one’s with RotoGrinders Dan Back. I think considering the breaking news involving NY banning DFS, I feel that’s it’s too important to just leave it available only to those who attend the DFS conference. It’d also give the media here an opportunity to hear in long form and in-depth how DK & FD really feel and having footage from this available to them could go a long way towards possibly stopping AG Schneiderman in his tracks.

    Hitting lotto is more of a fantasy than fantasy sports is.
