    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

    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.

    Can’t they fight it Facebook had a cease and desist order in the movie and they never shut down….haha jk

    The NBA should brace for thousands of us dropping NBA league pass tomorrow.

    I love how I can go to a racetrack and bet thousands on any horse I want, or perhaps put in hundreds of dollars at a slot machine at aqueduct…but obviously playing on F.D or D.K is illegal lol. Schneiderman / Bharara musta been a long time loser at the games because there fucking imbecilic and can’t stand to lose another dollar lol… What a joke this state is, and what a fool us NY residents are for paying upwards of 10k a year in property taxes to live in this shit hole of a state filled with disgusting people and disgusting neighborhoods… Must. Get. Out. ASAP.

    I just wish the government would let ADULTS do ADULT things that don’t hurt anyone.

    Playing DFS doesn’t hurt anyone.

    Sad day for me. I literary just found out on ESPN while I am at work. I just discovered DFS sports in May of this year and even though I may be down about $75.00 between both sites combined this has been the best experience I have had with MY MONEY in quite some time. Now because I live in NY I am screwed.

    The hypocrisy of states banning DFS while allowing state lotteries and gambling like in Nevada and New Jersey is sickening.

    The irony of banning DFS in NY just 2 DAYS before the biggest DFS conference ever which happens to be in New York State is tragic. I’ll bet NYS wont have any problem collecting all that sales tax from that event though spending in the city

  • hpharri1994

    Some of the biggest players in this industry share the blame as well. They were just as greedy as the sites. Now all the sudden I see them all speaking out on Twitter. Damn shame.

  • raiders7532

    Site will have to go to court and get an injunction, we will be able to play pending a hearing to determine if we are violating laws. Thats if a judge is willing to listen, The owners of the site risk being collared in the meantime for 225.10 NYS penal law prom gambl 1st degree

    Can AG Eric Schneiderman be impeached?

  • jman21

    Sad, all the issues in NYS and they are wasting our tax money on something that is bringing in tax money to there coffers. Love FD response about time they decided to do some fighting, but they will need help from the leagues. This is just as big for the networks and leagues why would anyone watch the 4th qtr of a blowout unless there was relevance in fantasy. Who will lose the networks, the leagues and guess what when they make less the gov’t will make less cause less rev less taxes. But let me go to one of the new casino’s and throw a 20 in and have no control over my 20. We do not even have table games which give us a chance of skill in our downstate ny casino’s. But thats fine and good.

    Wow such a sad sad day.

    Agreed. I could drive over to Belmont tomorrow and play the ponies, something that takes no skill whatsoever. But I can’t spend that same money on something like DFS that takes time, research, skill and game theory into account. It’s mind boggling what these clowns think.

    We all play of our own accord. Nobody forces us to play, it’s a personal choice. The government needs to stay the F out of what people do with their money/time.

    an Injunction is what we should all hope for at this point

    GO OUT AND PROTEST IN FRONT OF THE NY AG OFFICE. Stand up for your rights!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • tyrvidar

    It’s amazing how many government “officials” don’t feel the adults in their state/country/county/city can’t think for themselves. This isn’t a problem in just NY, nor is it isolated to DFS – it’s a nationwide life, liberty and pursuit of happiness attack by TPTB and it’s been happening for a very long time.

  • SouthernShield

    Would someone link FD response?

  • intimadator2007

    I hate the crap out of this for NY’ers who play DFS, It is a huge kick in the nuts for DFS with 1/2 million people who will not be making deposits lost on the DFS sites can they handle this one ? I live in Tenneesee and we are in the clear for now but with NY going down I’m really affraid the sites will start collapsing one at a time without any depositors left.If you live in a majority democrat state you should have moved years ago but definatley should be moving now.

  • clevelandmike19

    Lets all go into any bar in NEW YORK state and loose our pay check playing quick draw or Horse Racing/Racino that’s ok. Whole country is a bunch of hypocrites.
