    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.

    I don’t know about the FD execs being happy, apparently the guy Tucker (or Tanner or whatever his name is) won the Milli on FD this year and may have different names…

    Petteytheft has a source who says he played under RRPatter52 and CSURAM says he “for sure” played under TannerTolbert.

    I’m sure people have been beating the system for awhile and haven’t been caught.

    Was just listening to the deeper dive before lock and guess who makes their first appearance ever to listen to the show….I’ll give you a hint, their initials are JR. Is it suspicious that “they” take down the milly maker and then an investigation begins and jade all of a sudden starts listening to the deeper dive? Or is it to make it look like she’s been apart of the dfs community all along and knows how to run optimizers and crunch numbers and built those lineups on her own?

  • Gasou4389

    Someone might have already mentioned this but look at results DB for milly maker each week. They lock the same player nearly every week. The best example is 12/15. Miles Sanders in 150 of 150 for both. Keenan Allen in 149 of 150 for both.

    I sent DK a self exclude email about a month ago and I am considered a “VIP” player and play 6 figures a month on volume. I will be pursuing a class action lawsuit. These guys think they can be an OTC company – with this sort of transparency is a joke. Sadly, DK will need to get out of DFS ASAP and focus more on the sportsbook side of the house – this is where they make their hay. The lack of transparency was a problem from day one and finally some much needed publicity has out these guys in a position that they have to address. The best way to hit them is to self exclude and support the Yahoos and FantasyDraft’s of the world.

    Just hop on Facebook there are all kinds of ads for class action lawsuits against FD and DK. You don’t even need to start your own

    Those are chintzy. I am part of a larger group that has been against the MME and pro syndicates from day one. This is now viral and if DK wants to act like a public company vs Theranos, they’re going to need to open the kimono here and show us all the skeletons. I don’t think they can afford to. This is likely the last full season of NFL DFS as we know it.

    Devils advocate: In this situation can’t DK just not pay them and say we have rules and they broke them. How is that the end of DFS?

    Certainly you don’t expect DK to analyze lineups for collusion before the contest starts right? It isn’t illegal for both of them to play on their own so what did DK do wrong?

    I think it’s just great how that Randone guy dislodged his head from Tolbert’s ass long enough to declare all 300 lineups were hand built—

    —Only for Tolbert to tell ESPN, a few hours later, that optimizers were used.

    I may have actually flipped over to their side if they were hand made.

    I wonder what the day was like at Draftkings headquarters. I liked Al Z’s take calling this the perfect storm now that national news has picked this up and is running with it. Draftkings really can’t do anything about this situation without addressing the elephant in the room that syndicate play exists at the highest levels. So what do they do as just ignoring it won’t make it better either.

    It will be an interesting upcoming few weeks to see some official Draftkings statements to see if they try to hide behind privacy or and pretend like their terms actually mean something or if they do something to try and gain the integrity of the site back. In my opinion their best move may be to just pay them out and eliminate the community guidelines and quit pretending like they are actually legitimately enforced without such easy loop holes.

  • karatesbadboy

    I can’t even imagine being mad about this.

    You all are literally on a website with content hosts that regularly declare “lock this guy in!”, but OMG grab the pearls because a husband and wife both played and locked in the same player.

    I don’t get it. Two people, two W2’s, coordinate all you want for all I care. Have fun.

    They cant do that or else the legalization of sports betting nationwide could be hurt, or DK Sports book might run into some serious hurdles getting off the ground. The implications are larger than DFS.

    They will probably pay them out and then “eliminate” their 300 lineups from the standings and then pay everyone else out. So whoever finished 2nd will get a million dollar payout as well, and so on through the standings

    You don’t understand this issue at all if that’s what you think people are mad about. A tout telling the masses to lock this guy in isn’t syndicate play with a team to circumvent entry limits.

    You’re not even remotely close to what people are upset about.

    No I get it – people are upset that they lose money playing DFS and want to blame a boogeyman for it.

    No, it’s two or more people who blatantly colluded to enter 300+ unique lineups in a single contest.
