    Hey Grinders,

    The battle to keep DFS fully legal is still going on in some states, and obviously New York is an important one. Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is considering preventing New Yorkers from playing daily fantasy sports. There are over 500,000 daily fantasy players in the state of New York and AG Schneiderman would like to put in place restrictive measures that prevent your ability to play. It’s time for our community to come together and stand up against these unreasonable efforts.

    If you live in New York, you can help now. Make sure AG Eric Schneiderman hears from you. Tell him you support daily fantasy sports for all in New York state. Daily fantasy sports is fun, entertaining and a game of skill. NY has bigger challenges than fantasy football.

    Please contact the Attorney General Eric Schneiderman via phone, email, etc. at the details below, and visit this URL to petition

  • julieduke33

    DFS People are going to bet sports illegally, not drive to a casino….that doesn’t help any stat that bans it

  • joero40

    I hate nyc so much I got to get out of here

  • whodat2

    How about these states put it to an effing vote and let “we the people” decide. FFS

  • yanksfan1

  • deactivated70850

    If only people would actually vote these clowns out of office.

  • Sjolly83

    Wouldn’t expect any less from a state run by cronies and unions. They won’t even allow the ufc in the state now dfs.

  • electrichaz3

    Great statement by FD in response. I smell a challenge

    But they are all clowns who do we vote for?

  • Hills180

    I don’t understand why the lottery, casinos, and horse betting are all ok but DFS is bad.

  • AC244

    So if I live in PA temporarily (college) and go to NY for one day, will I be able to set my lineups in NYC? Permanent address is in NJ

  • buffballz

    Why did the AG say that DFS companies are “Fleecing Sports Fans” then he states “Not on my watch” , what does he know that I don’t ??

    Where is their statement?

  • jason18801999

    I have games on there tonight and can still enter contests? When does this take place?

  • bbjay20

    What a bunch of crap. Politicians really are idiotic. This does NOTHING to help NYS. Instead of tax revenue, the state gets nada.

    These clowns will never get my vote, as if that means much.

    He doesn’t know anything he didn’t even talk to DK or FD or look at heir business models..just trying to make a name for himself

  • raiders7532

    Does that mean Fanduel will shut down tomorrow? It’s the Fantasy sports companies fault for not regulating it’s self. Scripts,mass entries etc. If it is a game of skill why the need for scripts,computer generating line ups, mass entries?

    GREED will kill Daily Fantasy Sports. It looks like a domino effect.

    I have active lineups on 3 different sites tonight. Are we to assume that those will just be canceled eventually and entry fees refunded?

    Also a couple million FDPs that I should have been astute enough to use before this inevitably happened.

    “Fleecing sports fans”

    Anybody that plays does so voluntarily. Saying anybody is getting fleeced is ridiculous. If anybody is getting fleeced, it’s the people of NYS. DFS has/had the ability to generate a large volume of tax revenue.

  • hpharri1994

    They brought it on themselves. It was only a matter of time before this happened with they way FD and DK have run things. They have been reckless and greedy. The decision is stupid but the sites are to blame.

    FD/DK have 5 days to respond, so I assume we’ll have that time to continue playing and then cash out… Just guessing though.

    Agree.
