    You guys are too sensitive, I thought it was hilarious. This makes no sense, but it was so true yet so false on so many levels.

    True yet false on so many levels – I agree. I particularly related to the part about the rest of the field also owning your player that goes off. Anyone who owned Manny Machado yesterday knows for sure. Hilarious.

    What drives me crazy about this article, and others like it (such as the one in the NY Times), is the fact that these guys play DFS for a single weekend and then think they can come to these broad conclusions on daily fantasy. Especially love that in the NYT article, the guy actually profited, but then attributed it to luck.

    I won’t go into another rant on the ridiculous egos and sense of entitlement these clowns (and people like them) seem to have, but I just don’t get it. Has life come so easy to them that they just master whatever craft they become interested in overnight? I suspect not, seeing as the quality of the writing is absolute garbage, and they’ve probably been working on that for their entire lives.

    Makes me wonder how many things in this world I have a completely wrong perception of based on exposure to articles/opinions like this of people who try things for 5 mins then go and tell anyone who will listen why thing x is the devil.

    I think it’s just calling out the way the advertising portrays DFS vs. the reality of actual gameplay.

    Best lines in this artcle: “As Bloomberg reported earlier, the people that “win” at daily fantasy are hardcore gamblers who enter hundreds of pools and use their own algorithms to set advantageous lineups. This renders daily fantasy a “game of skill” only if you consider investing a shitload of resources to rig the game to your advantage a kind of skill. Everyone else is going to lose money, and lose it quickly.”

    So true.

    liberal and progressive values where censorship is frowned upon and the freedom to make one’s own decision are promoted

    I agree with your post, but this is definitely an OLD SCHOOL definition of “liberal” and “progressive.”

    If they would use their contrarianism to actually build some milly maker lineups maybe they would win and fall in love with DFS lol
