    I see they are really digging deep with the 3% off 27 dollar entries. What a steal! In all seriousness they do not really owe us anything, but I think they could have done a lot better with this promotion.

    Overreactions?

    No, not really. We have an industry currently fighting for survival, and some of its players bitching that certain Black Friday discounts given by one of said companies to various six-figure GPPs weren’t big enough….as if DK was doing something wrong in the first place giving it’s players discounted prices toward some prize pools.

    This thread is a wonderful microcosm to the state of our country today – where no matter what is done for the betterment of all – someone will always complain and act like a victim.

    Wow, and I thought Star Wars nerds lacked perspective.

    angry bird coach could not say it any better!

    I keep saying this in most industry threads that I post in. People keep looking for free handouts in order to help them out…..they get a small discount last friday, but they COMPLAIN, they want a BIGGER discount. This is absolutely no different than how certain people in America think, so it is absolutely justified that the Chiefs Angry Bird brings this up. We don’t want this to turn political in any way because there are forums for that, but JaNelson38 is 100% right and any one who argues with him just looks stupid.

    All of us have freedom of speech to complain about offers or lack of offers that we get from websites. But remember, the BEST offer they all give us is the ability itself to play daily fantasy sports – and that is all I need. I don’t need handouts or bonuses or any of that garbage.

    In fact, I get very suspicious of new DFS sites that give out too many bonuses and keep getting all excited about OVERLAY – they are attracting people to their sites with these tactics, but they are losing money, every week, because of this. That is not a site that can be trusted – that is as close to Ponzi scheme as I could imagine. So you can either play on sites that give you everything for free, or you can play on a normal DFS site such as the ones RG currently approves, and do not act like you know something about business when DK offers a small discount instead of offering a MONSTER discount.

    There is ABSOLUTELY nothing different in the Country, or in the world, about how people thinks, reacts and interacts at this present time from any other point in (relatively) modern human history.

    What is different is that instead of going home or at the bar and mumbling and bitching to wife, friends or bartenders, now people types on a keyboard and bitches to the entire world to hear.

    Just like this.

    lol pretty much agree. only difference i see is the people who just complain about everything, instead of being told that they are being immature and need to grow up, find all the other people (online) who think just like them which, in their mind, validates their asinine attitude on life.

    The explanation that “they could have made more money for themselves here” is one of the most ridiculous things I have read in a long time.

    It’s nothing more than lead loss. By offering more contests at a discounted rate they gain more share, which leads to more people entering full priced contests and increases revenue in the long run.

    That was my initial thought process when I made the post, but I then realized that it is a hell of lot easier said then done. But apparently hearing what people have to say and developing an altered opinion is known as being a “backtracking moron” around these parts.
