    Get Updates on the Daily Joust Potentially closing rumors here.

    There’s a lot of chatter about DailyJoust closing so I’ve been digging into it today.

    Today I talked to Mike Rathburn and both of the owners, Mike Mathys and Mike Brook. Rathburn has moved on to FantasyFeud and Mathys has resigned. The remaining owner is Mike Brook and I’ve asked him to come in and communicate with us.

    Both owners assured me that player funds are 100% safe and segregated. The rumor is true that they were pursuing acquisition deals that fell through. Mike Brook plans to continue to run the site and is pursuing other deals. He says there is no truth to the rumor that the site will shut down after SuperJoust. That said, there have clearly been a lot of issues behind the scenes. Mike says he will check in on this thread and answer questions as best he can.

    I’m sorry to see the breakup. I’ve worked with all three of these guys for a long time now and enjoyed it. They took an early chance on the Podcast sponsorship, which really turned out well for Grinders. Really glad to see that Rath landed on his feet with Feud.

    Like the format, the site is horribly ugly. Really need a better look / interface…. Hopefully they work it out and improve their site.

    I have had the same issues Billsfan. I had to log in via my cell phone to join the super joust. I wonder if they have blocked Canadain IPs?

    just wondering if a DFS site folded without refunding anything to anybody what legal recourse if any does a player have to recover their money

    filing litigation which costs more than your account balance (usually)

    It is unfortunate as I have been a big supporter of Daily Joust, but I feel the writing is on the wall. Not sure if they will cease, but I do think users will stop playing there, including myself.

    Try using a different browser. II use Firefox and that seems to work well for me but others swear by chrome. This could be the issue.

    say it ain’t so! DJ easily became my favorite site this year and was one of the rare sites I had talked season-long NBAers into playing next year. Bummer.
