    The worst part is that the KC LAA game should have been cancelled last night.
    There’s absolutely no fucking reason to wait till late in the day to cancel a game for cold weather that you knew would be cold at least 3-4 days earlier. And then DK constantly chopping slates up now only adds to the mess. I honestly wish there was regulations that would not allow slates of less then 4 games. This is a skill based game that becomes a lot less skillful with super small slates. And Now these one game slates that dk is running are a complete joke.

    Guess they didn’t want Lively to get the chance to earn the win….ugh

    Good for him because it is ridiculous that neither site is, at least at this point, going to offer a credit to everyone’s account.

    I think a lot of people will boycott playing for a while or request withdrawals and I can’t really blame them for doing so. The capricious nature of the cancellation and how late it came was ridiculous. The game should have been played. Players have batting gloves don’t they, or are they really bunch of Sissy Mary Pantywaists?

  • kcroyalty29

    I just can’t believe I lost literally hundreds of dollars on a game that had a ZERO PERCENT CHANCE of precipitation and NO OTHER GAMES TO SWITCH OUT TO. I had FIVE of my ten DK guys in this game with a great start from Syndeegard and Sale. Barely out of the green right now. I am beyond furious that these sites can’t use common sense and take care of completely beyond bad luck situations like this one. Am i right in being mad or is this simply the sites following the stated rules? Because this makes me want to cash out until football and not play MLB anymore.

    Exactly right my friend. Heck I remember how cold the Yankees and Red Sox games were and they were not cancelled. Ridiculous! These players get paid and they need to play regardless unless the weather is absolutely atrocious. I don’t feel sorry for them one bit. But you’re right. both FD and DK are going to feel it after what has transpired for the past several days.

    It’s been rather evident for a while that the sites don’t really give a shit until enough people get mad and threaten to quit. There have been times where the site itself was making it impossible for people to change lineups near lock and it took people flipping out for them to announce that if people emailed them within 2 hours they’d refund them.

    Whether or not pulling out your money is the right solution is a question only you can answer. It differs from person to person. Does the entertainment and potential to win money offset the understanding that the sites are doing whatever they can to drain you of your money (splitting up slates, increasing rake without announcing it, single game slates, and still allowing 150 entries in a single tournament for one player being the main things at the current time)? If so, chalk it up to bad luck and move on to tomorrow. If not, find some other hobby to get into instead that doesn’t make you feel like you’re getting swindled frequently.

    I went ahead and withdrew my Draft Kings money and will not be playing there again until football. Disappointed, because I was hoping to have fun playing MLB DFS this year. But spending hundreds of dollars a day to have stuff like this happen, with DK not offering even a penny of compensation or bonuses, makes me realize this isn’t for me. I hope others will do the same. Nothing will ever change in this industry until they hurt in the bottom line and can start tracing it to direct incidents (like today).

  • Roma315

    I emailed them. The Fing response back was this is a game of skill, and I must watch every game until lock.
    I did MFers but there was no team to switch to. RAGING about $250 down the drain!

  • kcroyalty29

    They don’t care. Join me Roma in not giving them your money anymore. This was my last straw today. First time I’ve ever complained, too, either to them or on here (check my post history)

  • Diebomb

    Holy hell.. just saw where everyone got screwed today.

    Fukkem! I didn’t know that the game of skill also required a degree in meteorology! What a-holes.

  • Diebomb

    wow the Angels game cancelled because it is cold? this is crazy lol. everyone should def be refunded on the slates. that absolutely blows my mind.

    I told them once my golf cashes close out I’m moving all my action over to FD. This is a joke. 11 game slate down to 6, which could move to 5.

  • blantj

    So STl CIN back on for 345… Will DK at least let us swap our Nats players out?

  • Srmustangs

    A simple fix that won’t solve these problems but will HELP is allowing you to swap players into a game that is delayed. In this day of technology is it to much to ask for to not have players lock until the game actually starts. I’m sure all the games are on tv at the main office and someone can hit a button to lock. Like if a game is delayed at a sportsbook the game goes back online til it starts. DK aspires to be a sportsbook soon. I have 0 faith they will be a good one for many reasons but maybe these simple additions will HELP the user experience something DK claims to want but rarely if never provides. Allowing you to swap angel players to cards or reds whether that game is cancelled or not is a simple fix that should be implemented.

    I play on FD and kind of the same situation.

  • jhpog

    I sent an email asking about this situation and was told that DFS is a game of skill and its my responsibility to keep up with the weather. That response took me from “Oh, that’s unfortunate, let me ask them what their policy is for these circumstances” to “Your customer service is rude and I no longer wish to do business with you”. I’ll be moving my funds as well (I am a small time player so they won’t miss me very much, but this market is saturated and there’s no reason for that type of response).

    Well, on a good note, big props to the folks over at Fantasy Draft!

    After I found out about the Angels game PPD ruined my lineups for the day, I asked for my entry fees back, and they were refunded within minutes. Totally wouldn’t expect that from any DFS site, but those guys are awesome! Hopefully, this stupid weather will get back to normal soon.

  • LegiaWwa

    Anyone else unable to edit their Yahoo lineups before the west coast games?

  • homers1226
