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.
