      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.

    I’m just glad I won’t have Phil Ivey staring at me like a creep anymore.

    Yes ! I will miss Rosters, but not that guy looking at us.

    Seemed like they invested more in that schmuck then they did the actual site.

    “I was bummed when I came in 2nd (no prize) in the free Superbowl trip contest.
    Hope the winner gets his trip.”

    Thanks for your concern :) It sounds like they will be making good on the Superbowl trip (like they have with player balances). Airfare and motel have already been paid for, and I have been assured the tickets will be sent later (I will be sure to let you know if that doesn’t come to fruition, though I fully expect that it will).

    By the way, I felt really bad for you. That contest was a nail biter. I believe David Johsnon won it for me in the final moments of that doozy of a game between the Seahawks and Cardinals. He somehow had a great game despite the final score of 6-6.

    Nailbiter indead.
    I had beaten you by one point for the win.
    I was going to the Superbowl with my brother.
    Teams missed field goals to end it, so it went to overtime where David Johnson got an extra 2 points and I lost.

    No prize for second.

    Make sure you enjoy that trip.

    Thank you Rosters for doing things the right way (take notes, Fantasy Aces)! Despite closing up shop (for the time being), they followed through with everything they said they would. Last night’s game was an experience my wife and I will never forget. I hope that they are able to reenter the market/industry sometime down the road, as I really liked their site and how they conducted themselves.

    Joephoto, I thought of you a few times during the game. Somebody had to win the contest, but that was a tough one to lose, especially given how great the game turned out.

    Sorry to revive an old thread but has anyone else had their withdrawal request completely ignored by rosters.com? I submitted a withdrawal on December 21, 2016 and have followed up with several emails since then with absolutely no reply and no payment. I tried to be patient but I’ve been completely ignored for over 4 months.

    Can anyone none offer any guidance in this situation?

    I’ll forward this to the guys that ran Rosters. I’m sure they’ll get this sorted out.

    emailed jbryan at the address on his iTEAM account

  • jbryan586

    Just to follow up, herberh2 sorted this out promptly. Many thanks to Cal as well for getting the ball rolling. I really appreciate it!

  • Andy6789

    Is there an email address that is monitored that I can email someone? I put in a withdraw request a few weeks ago and sent an email to the contact email on the site and haven’t heard anything back yet.

    Thanks,

    Andy
