    Just saw this on ESPN

    “The leading daily fantasy sports operators are voluntarily suspending contests on college sports indefinitely in all states as part of a deal with the NCAA, company officials told ESPN’s David Purdum.”

    A link to the story: http://espn.go.com/chalk/story/_/id/15104454/draftkings-fanduel-stop-offering-college-fantasy-games

    I could not hate the NCAA anymore. Don’t like Draftkings or Fanduel for agreeing to this either. I might just stop playing DFS other than dabbling in soccer and golf because the college sports were all I REALLY enjoyed.

    The NCAA is the most hypocritical organization. No one is allowed to make money on their “amatuer” athletes but them.

    If it wasn’t for sports wagering (and fantasy sports), they would not have the huge tv deals they have. Their viewership would plummet.

    My favorites DFS sport is CFB. This sucks so much.

  • JENSGT

    Why is it ok to bet in Vegas but not on fantasy sports? This is making me sick.

  • osuryanf

    NCAA forced the issue here, they’ve been threatening DK/FD for awhile.

    While the NCAA will act like it won’t effect them much, it will undoubtedly effect their viewership numbers which, ironically, will effect advertisement to some degree.

    Hate it for DFS players, and hoping this will hurt the NCAA long term. For anyone who hasn’t done much research on the NCAA, all you need to know is they are a VERY corrupt business that takes advantage of student athletes solely to line their own pockets — and nothing else.

    This was bound to happen any day now, but it was a fun ride. It will be interesting to see what FA and FF do.

    Saw that one coming from a mile away. I will always have the Texas Tech TCU game as a DFS memory that I will pass on to my grandkids.

    Will go from watching a ton of college football every Saturday to watching literally none. I hate the NCAA.

  • wolfer

    I wish someone would bring up the fact that the NCAA wants to put the kibosh on DFS, but the brackets are fair game…………….

    What an absolute greedy joke the NCAA is. Ok for Vegas but not DFS? CBB dfs was a lot of fun. The lack of CBB makes me want to quit playing dfs. I had a lot of fun this year competing against all of you. Good luck!!

  • bbjay20

    The NCAA may be the most hypocritical org in the world. Mark Emmert is a piece of trash that has really made the NCAA so much worse.

  • Oregon97232

    This sucks. I enjoyed playing CBB on FD. Glad the suspension won’t begun until after the Final 4 on Saturday.

  • lloydjv1

    May they all lose their viewership and network coverage. I did pretty well in CFB DFS. damn.

  • TheRyanFlaherty

    I’d be fine with this, as long as the NCAA also took every line off the board in Vegas and stopped any bets being placed on college sports, but we know that’s not the case….

    Actual gambling on a single event is a much larger threat to the integrity of any college sport.
    With actual betting taking place on the games, I’m not even sure what warped rationale you’d use to banish DFS….because kids on campus are more likely to play fantasy sports and it puts added pressure on the athlete to perform and/or they take even more crap if they don’t play well???
    Grasping at straws…really all I can think of.
    Unless this is just distancing themselves due to the questions of DFS’ legality, and they would allow it again if DFS was clearly legal in all states.
