      2019 DraftKings FFWC Finalist

    Gabe Hunterton from iTeam called to let me know they will not be posting more real money games. The site will remain online so that players can cash out funds. You can cash out through Paypal or check. Paypal is faster and recommended.

    I had high hopes for iTeam. Gabe has a regulated gaming background, making him a great fit for the new DFS landscape. They seemed to be in a great spot to take advantage of whatever opportunities arose with the DraftKings/Fanduel merger. The capital markets didn’t agree, though. Gabe was not able to raise the large series A round needed to make the next big push. They will continue to own the code and IP and may come back online if things change and they’re able to raise money in the future.

    If you have any questions or issues feel free to post them here.

    Not surprised. That site was a disaster right from the get-go.

  • fistpumper

    Brutal, I have been loving this site lately. Anyone received a check and have a timeframe they received it in?

  • MrFantasy

    Same thing continues to happen with these smaller sites. Funding won’t come through, legislation issues and basically the downright monopoly that DK/FD holds over the entire industry.

  • GrindUnumb

    Sad to see them go. Surprising they couldn’t hang on through the last few NFL weeks.

    I’d like to let everyone know I just received a $3k+ withdrawal that I submitted early this morning

  • inwhiterooms

    Not surprising at all. Giving away $40 free for a $10 deposit is not a sustainable business model.

  • tarheel66

    They should have never been hyped up by Roto grinders knowing there was a case going on that had Phil Ivey included in it.

    Gabe may be reputable but Phil Ivey ?? Come on really

    Phil Ivey was not the owner of the company and Rosters was simply a skin on the iTeam network which had several different sites (FC Draft, DraftDemons, Rosters, FantasyUp, CardplayerDraft) and probably more that I’m not aware of.

    No one had anything negative happen to them. Everyone’s balances are available for withdrawal and every guarantee was honored.

    If smaller sites can’t make a go of it, that does not bode well for the future of the industry. Micro stakes players need the smaller sites that are not rampant with high volume pros to be able to somewhat sustain themselves. At least the funds are there for players to cash out……………

    Yeah I believe there was a total of 15 skins. Also, just wanted to reiterate that you should have no issues with withdrawals. I talked to Gabe last night and his only concern was for the players and that everyone’s balances were going to be honored. Stand up guy and we’d be lucky for him to stay in this industry.

  • tarheel66

    Go and check how many times he has had to repay casinos for cheating, twice now. You want your money around a guy like that ? Good for you

    Why the last guy trolled, I have no idea? everyone at least happy they still got the cash.

    Im still waiting for a response on my email requests for Draft Ops .com LOL

  • Butterjc81

    Had a great experience using Rosters throughout the NFL Season. Cash out today was super quick!

  • eperson911

    I got my balance cashed out with Paypal within a few hours. No complaints here.

    Any chance of transferring the remaining 10 months of RG incentives for use on another site?

    We can’t do this unfortunately. The incentive for both RG and the player is tied to the account on Rosters.

  • BloodGame

    Sucks, it was a very soft site. Their software was a problem but I really liked their loose player pricing, and never had a problem with them of any kind. I withdrew my balance today and received it in a couple hours. Another site down the drain.

    Don’t be surprised if all the small sites eventually go away. They are all great and run by good people, but the salad days of this industry are long gone.
