    I came here with popcorn in hand but was pretty shocked to find no discussion of it.

    Worst part about it is that DK has an obvious case of cheating and yet promotes the win.

    This is just horrible. This tweet here sums it perfectly.

    Vote with your wallets folks. Boycott Draft Kings. We can’t just continue to sit back, watch this and continue paying rake when there’s so many other options out there.

    We’ll get the DFS police right on that. Yeah would be shocked if there wasnt a third person involved here.

    That’s the user, if anyone.

    Wouldn’t be the first keep quiet or they may shut it down instance. I can think of a big one back in 2014 that went by pretty quietly that I am still bitter about.

    CANT STOP BEASTMODE right?
    With Marshawn just getting signed last week…. either a very old account or a brand new account. What if this account was created last week?

    And this brings me to what imo is another issue… usernames.

    I understand why some people wouldn’t want to use their real names, however with the growth of the industry and (no offense anyone) the abundance of supershady characters operating in it, the only somewhat effective long term fix should probably be ID verification and real names on accounts.

    I mean. They can always go public OTC… anyone can go public as a penny stock. But if they plan to IPO for serious money I think they need to address some transparency issues.

    It don’t make sense that she tweets, he told me not to play Metcalf, but yet he has like 80% Metcalf. It’s funny that the lineups on her account is the one that won, if it happened on his account he may have never tweeted and it might not have been brought to light or much speculation around it.

  • ferrara316

    it has officially made the NY news – however, the article strangely doesn’t explain why their lineups were suspicious, it just explains how their 300 lineup entering is against the rules.

    So…. who thinks CANT STOP BEASTMODE is:
    1) A new account made by the couple
    2) A new account made by the husband
    3) Randone
    4) Some user that really, really liked Brady and Cousins and really, really, disliked all the other QBs and has nothing to do with the couple

    😂

    If she just kept her mouth shut and wasn’t an attention seeking fame whore no one probably even notices any of this.

    Good it made the post. Hope more attention is brought to this

    She didn’t say anything. It was Chris Randon congratulating Tanner and not her for the Milly win which set off the firestorm.

    They tried to explain that tweet away as that lineup wasn’t in first at the start of the Seahawks game and Tanner was trying to tell her to late swap off Metcalf to Ward for a better chance to pass lineups in front of her which in itself makes 0 sense due to this only being a 4 game slate and it wasn’t like Metcalf was going to be insane chalk that everyone in front will absolutely have.

    it wont go away for sure now-once something makes the news people run with it-I remember the issue with the in game bet prop on a different site-once the press got wind of it they were like a dog with a bone

    A Google search of DraftKings shows this has now gone viral across the web. It’s now not something that can just be ignored. This is when attorneys start looking to get involved.

    This is why I don’t understand why DK won’t be transparent with their investigation and let everyone know what actions if any will be taken. This is a black eye to the brand that they can actually turn into a good thing by being transparent and showing the entire world they take their terms and conditions seriously. If they come out and say “I’m sorry but we can comment on this due to privacy issues” that is going to be taken by me at least that we are doing nothing and hopefully everyone forgets about this in a week.

    If they don’t want to lose credibility with the masses they have to be transparent with this investigation. I am still hopeful they will do the right thing.

    Lol, so many layers to this.

    It seems clear that there was collusion and likely a third person involved.

    If this situation gets swept under the rug, maybe it’s time for people to self-exclude from DK due to the site’s perceived “inaction” to address collusion. Perhaps this is the best way to send a message.
