    I dont want to play this slate. I hate how DK is taking away the 10 EST game.

    Think I’m going to play Yahoo today for mlb. I like the Stl/Cin game for bats, and have some interest in Stratton as an Sp2 in the late game.

    Gonna play some hockey on DK though. 5 games is a nice slate for the playoffs.

    Nice article

    I wish DK would offer an all day slate on days like today or at least run a 7 game slate with the games starting at 6.

    Did DK give any explanation at all for cutting off the night game again? Or is it just to get more people into the Showdown crap?

    Personally, if pitching wasn’t so iffy tonight, and I wasn’t looking to Stratton as a potential value play, notice the word potential as he’s certainly no lock, i wouldn’t have a problem with it. In fact I often find it obnoxious when every single other game ends before the last lone game starts. Why do I have to wait an additional 3 hours to find out if I won anything. Especially those on the east coast, having to stay up until 1am for 1 game. If it was a more robust slate, I’d actually prefer it. However, if there is more than 1 late game on the slate, then the games shouldn’t be left out, imo. Yet for a lone freestanding game….I prefer it off the slate on most slates.

    this is bull. wtf are they doing? They have eliminated the west coast games the past 2 nights.

    Wait——people stay awake to see if they won? Is this a thing? Might need a whole THREAD for this topic. I’m in bed by 11 Eastern every night –

    Mother fucking DK up to their bullshit again………

    In my opinion, a slate should always include every game if the gap between first pitch for the first and last games is no more than around 3 hours. For tonight, the first game is at 7 and the last game is at 10. No need to shorten the 5 gamer into just 4 games. It increases the high rollers edge because they can cover. a higher percentage of players.

    It’s like Fanduel and Draftkings are in a race to the bottom. Fanduel has a showdown slate for every single NHL playoff game tonight. Lol.

    DK is smarter than all of us…take off the late game and make it a stand alone = more money for them. I actually like it a lot

    Where did you go? Last I saw you, you were dreaming of hitting that NBA Gpp every night. Then poof, you disappeared. Thought the Feds picked you up.

    Give the sites an inch, they’ll take a mile. As soon as they figured out that they could offer single game slates, the writing has been on the wall.

    for nights like tonight where the late game is a stand alone game , I have no problems with it

  • NarrowJ

    Could someone who understands DK Showdown scoring explain to me how Trevor Williams scored 26.2 FP in his last start? He pitched 5 1/3 innings and gave up 10 hits and 2 ER while only striking out 4.

    Wait a second, it looks like his score was calculated as if he were a relief pitcher. What the hell…. I can’t even play these Showdown contests if I can’t be confident that DK will actually score the contests correctly…

  • Semaj89

    Nights like tonight are why its terrible imo.

    So few games, bad pitching options, that extra game means a lot.

    Except the difference between 4 games and 5 games is kinda big. If it was an 11 game slate shortened to 10, then I wouldn’t care as much. But one game is a huge difference when you only have 8 teams to choose from.

    Yep. They realized no one will say anything so now they’ve run amok.

    Can’t wait till a law maker steps in and shuts this bs down.

    Why? Government steps in and ruins everything. You don’t like it don’t play, poof it’s out of your world. Why hope that it shuts down and it’s gone for everyone that maybe doesn’t mind? Terrible point of view.
