    I think they still have 30 days before they have to shut down.

    I truly believe a Bill is coming to legalize this after the long meeting they had Tuesday. The problem is we gotta wait till after the new year for anything to get done. Beyond absurd.

    Yes it does look like that. I am anxious for a dk statement for sure. I really don’t want to have to go back to a ‘real job.’

    I would take 30 days at this rate if I could still play in NY.

    Such a blatant display of corruption.

    Just opened up FanDuel and it said I’m not allowed to play anymore :(
    Good thing I cashed out my $600 winnings from this weekend.

    RIP New York. Doesn’t government suck? It must suck to be told what you can and can not do.

    damn. so sickening this whole thing is

    Francesa is gonna be absolutely intolerable with his patting himself on the back today. not that he isn’t intolerable already.

    I don’t get the ‘overlay!’ post. Does anyone outside of NY actually think this is a happy development?

  • pinstripeblue

    is yahoo still playable in NY?

  • mretrade

    So will draftkings continue to operate in NY during the appeal? Since they are not based in NY, can they really enforce an injunction of this nature?

    If we do have 30 days, I like really don’t want to continue playing for the 30 days. I am happy with my account balance and don’t want to donk it off knowing i have a time limit.

    Oh yay… right before I go back home to Buffalo for the weekend.

    So glad I moved out of that state.

    Their goal is to shut down Fanduel and Draftkings and force them into bankruptcy. Once that happens, they will start a state regulated DFS site where the government can make all the money. Its so corrupt that its almost laughable.

    Technically they can run for 30 days. But they may shut down to show good faith. Unclear.

    Legislature will take forever but regulation should come eventually.

    We are getting screwed though :(

    If you think other States are not going to follow you are pretty naive

    So no way we can play after the 30 days if this gets locked up in court?

    Like the appeal itself won’t make Draftkings to choose to operate despite today’s ruling?

    Its an injunction really enforceable in this case. Thats what I am interested in.

    I guess we won’t know for sure what draftkings plans are until they send out a latter or take action.

    I think there is at least some chance they continue to operate in NY during the appeal unless this is seriously enforceable.

    That’s a time to consider a different hobby/career path.
