    It’s time to withdraw funds and keep balances at $0 for a while. I think the cash crunch is coming very soon for FD and DK.

  • SkateFiend

    But can you withdraw funds that aren’t contest winnings? I know they made individual exceptions, but would allow that for all users?

    SO fanduel just eliminated MLB for the day I guess

    These companies must be just losing money hand over fist on DFS. Why would anyone play now with all this risk , needing to stay on twitter 24/7 and then if somethign happens they don’t refund or even talk to you ever. I think the days of DFS as we know it are toast.

    Yep. The customer makes the company. The handling of the situation yesterday…. let’s just say they no longer have my business.

    Kind of funny because they just announced the Mets and Marlins will play so we ended up with two games. They just didn’t want to eat massive overlay

    For you guys that played all day contests….

    Can we get some FAKE MLB like they did the NBA and NFL?

  • Roma315

    Glad I binked the $44 tournament Friday before this shit show

  • yisman

    got stuck with Story on Yahoo

    didn’t get him out in time. forgot I had that lineup

    And yet, contests with tens of thousands of entrants fill regularly.

    Predictions of DFS’ doom seem utterly misplaced given the continued volume.

    These companies (FD and DK) have next to no overhead. And rake in millions daily. FD still has 4 sports with $ contests running (PGA, UFC, NASCAR, and LOL) – they’re not ‘losing’ any money… they’re just making significantly less. For a couple days. I promise they aren’t losing any sleep nor is there a lack of people willing to gamble their money away regardless.

    Just sayin’. :)

  • Roma315

    I’m fighting still for my refund from yesterday. The slate should have been scrapped

  • yisman

    not sure what the Mets are doing

    maybe they’re trying to get the game postponed

    they still have not released a lineup

    people have been predicting DFS doom for years. On a long enough timeline, they’ll eventually be right!

    That pool of thousands of entries is likely dominated by hundreds. And tack on a pandemic, job loss, awful service and massive risk (players opt out, late scratches, les info coming pre lock from teams) paired with no chance of a refund – the pool is slowing this year considerably. Remember the market caps and audience these companies leveraged themselves to the T….sports betting is where they want to hitch wagon

  • RudyPujols

    DBacks/Rockies done, too. Rockies’ decision.

    Exactly. It’s disgusting they couldn’t handle the situation last night better. I’m just one person so they don’t give a shit. I hope they continue to frustrate their customers until everyone comes together and doesn’t take it anymore. Taking a hit for one day to keep everyone happy is a minimal price to pay compared to what it could cost them eventually.
    Big companies have fallen before my friend.

    And unlike a sportsbook – there is just about ZERO risk for them. The only risk is overlay (not all that common for FD and DK) and still, they’ll usually net a profit from those contests anyway. Just a smaller one.

    If they have a contest and it fills. They rake it in. Period.

    Sportsbooks can have days where they get their ass handed to them. DFS sites cannot.

    They’re just fine. lol. Not to mention, PPD’s due to Jacob Blake protests aren’t here to stay.

    They did perfectly fine with 3 months of eSports and cornhole contests… they will be fine missing two days…. what bothered me is that they canceled the contests early. Someone was going to win $100k w/Bal-TB and NYM-MIA (if still on) but theye didn’t want to take the risk of going red

    Orioles-Rays decide not to play Thursday

  • yisman

    and still no Mets lineup

    guessing they don’t want to tell anyone and it’ll be a “surprise” when they fail to take the field

  • hcassidy

    That was a given after everyone else said ‘No’. Yet all double headers will play tonight why because most teams are missing a bunch of games or decided not to play last night.

    Go read this from Bruce Arians as to why practice wasn’t cancelled. And before you jump on him, he has always been about diversity.
