    They already pay affiliates 30%+ of there bottom line, just lower affiliate fees and call it a day.

    To grow their bottom line, not take it away. But agree, their percentages are stupid to begin with. From beginning of time, I’d say 10-20% of FD revs are to affiliates.

    I guess only 0.5% of people that play DFS know what they are doing ???

    “Bloomberg research indicates that roughly 0.5 percent of players account for 98.5 percent of winning lineups.”

    Permanently ban employees from playing games.

    There are plenty of single entry tournaments currently available to individuals who wish to play them, yet many of these games do not start (at least of the $100+ dollar levels). Why is this the case? The prize pools for single-entry tournaments are inexorably lower, and humans, being greedy, are not satiated by these prize-pools. Without the massive-money-multi-entry players, we would be seeing more realistic prize pools, such as buying in for $1 in a single-entry and the winner getting $10,000.

    I think you all want to have your cake, eat your cake, and still stay fit. I’m sorry, but you must pick your poison in this world. Put up or shut up.

    I bet 2 sentences later it quoted someone stating that it is not a game of skill and therefore is gambling. Can’t have both sides of this argument people…

    Yep I’d say you do need to build better lineup’s cause I’m having no problems finishing high in tournaments. I played everyday this baseball season and if you put in the work and know how Gpp’s work you absolutely can win on a consistent basis. You’re just another example of someone who doesn’t win so they would rather think it’s rigged then admit they aren’t very good.

    By “knowing how gpps work” you mean you mass enter different team stacks. Do you know there are some people out there that used scripts that were against the sites TOS to enter lots more stacks? Do you know that helps them win 90% of the prizes? Do you know you’d win more if they hadn’t been doing that?

    DFS is parimutuel wagering. The house has no risk, they take their rake regardless of who wins or loses. Same as horse racing as an example.

    Yes you can with mass multi entry.

    Why do you think OR? I’m strongly looking at relocating there or maybe CA if they can still play DFS while I can’t in NV in a few weeks.

    I’m sure a legitimate web site will come along to fill the void that doesn’t mind having their business being licensed and having oversight over it. That is all that Nevada is proposing.

    Mass entering stacks doesn’t make you win. Playing the right lineup does though. Mass entering doesn’t guarantee a win. And no you wouldn’t win more because the prize pools would be 10% the size they are now if you take the 90% that are mass entry out of them.

    Doesn’t anyone get common sense or know how to do math? Jeez

    I thought they didn’t even have a lottery? Who do you think is going to come along? The same sites they already kicked out. Yeah right.

    Oregon eliminated Sports Action almost 10 years ago. A sports betting service run by the state. It has strict online gambling laws. I’m pretty sure.

    I might be jumping the gun but it seems like our state would follow this direction.

    The elimination of sports action was to be able to host the NCAA’s. I don’t think DFS has any impact on that, I could be wrong. I hope I am wrong.

  • Raiderdave

    The DFS sites need to start lobbying like crazing. Instead of all this advertising they should have been lining the pockets of the politicians. Then went on their advertising craze. Nevada was just waiting for the opportunity and these sites gave it to them. Have to protect their casinos.

    This is what NJ did with online poker. The established poker websites came in and partnered with the casinos. For example 888 Poker partnered with Caesars to offer online poker under Caesars gambling license with oversight from the casino control commission. The same thing can be done with DFS.

    I hope I’m just being paranoid.

    I mean I have not much to risk if DFS went out in Oregon. But I know other residents do.

    It’s a bummer this is all coming about.

    I hope OR leaves DFS alone. It’s currently my top choice. I literally have a Redfin search open looking at houses to purchase around Hawthorne and Division right now. I hope DFS doesn’t come crashing down across all the states.
