    I don’t get why some people are against regulation. Do you trust these sites to do the right thing ? I certainly don’t.

    exactly

    ou must’ve missed the memo that Starsdraft pulled out of FLA.

    Yeah, but I don’t play Starsdraft..DK and FD obviously have (had) pull. There are 12 states that actually ban DFS from one site or another.

    lol, I actually do. And I don’t trust the regs to do the right thing. I can guarantee big pool gpp’s go bye bye. So do multi entries. Just to name a couple. A game killer. Winnings taxed at an insane rate, another? Yea.

    Advice: Play everyday like it’s your last, lol.

    Can some one explain what this means? Does it mean only those for states can ban dfs.

    Can states regulate daily fantasy sports?
    There is some debate as to whether regulating daily fantasy sports is even possible at the state level. Sports legal expert Daniel Wallach wrote in March that the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) may prohibit most states from doing anything more than decriminalizing daily fantasy sports. Regulating the activity “may run afoul PASPA,” according to Wallach.
    The four states exempted from PASPA are Delaware, Montana, Nevada and Oregon:
    Montana already operates fantasy sports through its state lottery.
    Nevada has the ability to legalize nearly any form of sports betting.
    Delaware only writes NFL parlay cards. Citing its PASPA exemption, Delaware attempted to offer similar sports betting to Nevada through its lottery. Delaware was stopped by the sports leagues in a 2009 court battle. The court ruled that Delaware could only offer the same type of betting it did before PASPA was enacted.
    Oregon’s sports betting was similar to Delaware’s, except that it also once spread NBA parlays. Oregon has made no attempt to reenter the sports betting market since its Sports Action lottery ceased after the 2006 NFL season.

    I agree with the “Too big too fast” statements. Prize pools have grown to staggering amounts. The marketing done by these sites is so aggressive it is turning everyone off.

  • jjadamietz

    If any state would or SHOULD know the difference between a game of skill and a game of chance it should be Nevada. Its insane. Dont let people enjoy themselves even a little. No way the sites will get a license and admit they are gambling sites. This is nothing more then a shakedown. Fight this all you can even if not in the state of Nevada. Get active and fight this. Because if Nevada wins this case every other state will call it gambling and the games we all love are gone. This is a call to arms for all daily players.

    Doesn’t ban DFS, just requires them to get a license, again Nevada has the some of the most stringent state codes on gambling in order to protect casinos…

    Also let us not forget there is a federal law on the books that allows for DFS through the fantasy sports loophole, the DFS sites could sue in court to get the law thrown out or not applied to DFS

    The whole license deal allows them to apply, sure but the second they do that the will be considered a gambling site and the feds step in. States can still pass laws that are in conflict with federal laws see marijauna laws. this is shakedown plan and simple

    I find this quote from the ESPN article to be encouraging as far as future legality goes =)

    “We believe fantasy sports should be legal and subject to appropriate consumer and competitive protections,” Pallone and Menendez said in statement released after a Tuesday news conference.

  • ZachAndTired

    As we’ve learned from Absolute Poker, Ultimate Bet, Full Tilt Poker, Lock Poker, etc., we can always trust online gambling sites to regulate themselves properly…

    Ugh, DraftDay has already locked me out of my account…say they will contact regarding refund.

    As someone said above: All for regulation, but you never know what the pols motives are. Some would argue in Nevada they have a billionaire casino owner in their back pocket.

  • Pennywize69

    Can the casinos now create their own version of DFS and get a license to operate? I almost wonder if this is a squeeze out by the larger companies like Fanduel and Drafkings to get into the market.

  • Edavis12677

    hope this doesn’t happen in New York.

    To me the biggest advantage dfs has over simple gambling is the support from the actual leagues themselves. Being able to allow fans to wager on games without damaging the integrity of the actual games themselves makes a big difference. I cant imagine that the NFL, MLB, and NBA would want anything but a thriving DFS market. I have purchased tv packages for the nfl, nba, and mlb just because of dfs.

    It’s called higher rake.

    How much higher then Fanduel’s insane 16% blended rake from last weekend?

    They would be foolish to take that angle (apply for a license that is). Would love to be a fly on the wall at the DK and FD offices right now.

    None of those would change at all. The taxes (doubt you’ll have to worry) are still capital gains and that’s not going to change. https://rotogrinders.com/lessons/taxes-in-daily-fantasy-sports-219602 this might help you. The only taxes that could change is what FD and DK get charged for the license.

    That sucks, sorry North! Reminds me of going to the poker websites when Black Friday happened with the DOJ msg. Blah!

    Last time you walked int the DMV – did you think….WOW, this is extremely well run. Government involvement is rarely ever a positive in terms of user experience
