    Draftday hasn’t posted MLB contests and when you ask about it they send you a generic email saying they aren’t posting for some reason but they will promptly process withdrawals if you want to play on another site. This doesn’t sound like a site that is planning to stay in existence. We need to show some big support soon to try to get them to stay alive. They are the best remaining site IMO and the only remaining site with live drafts and chat. We can’t let the industry be limited to DK and FD, which looks like its UI was developed by a 1st-grader.

    This is really a great site with a great user experience. Let’s get some big action there for the next week and see if we can turn things around. Thanks.

    What is draft day?

  • LagunaDude

    It’s the best DFS site around and it seems like it’s about ready to go away like DraftStreet and Fantasy Feud. We can’t let that happen. Go check it out. It’s a lot better and different than the big sites.

    If it’s the best. It wouldn’t be going away

    They’re focusing their efforts on B2B – check DraftStars: https://draftstars.com.au/daily

    That site is limited to southern Australians, just guessing that is the minority of RG users.

    Draftday was great for NFL and NBA and have played there back when it was only FD, DD, and DS. Having said that if they haven’t posted MLB you have to think they won’t be around very much longer. Quality site with great pricing, but like other smaller sites unfortunately they probably aren’t making enough money to stick around longer. I hope they are here for NFL in the fall, the less sites around the harder it is to be a profitable DFS player.

    It definitely feels like something will be going down soon. Whether it’s a shutdown, or another buy-out.

    Loved this site pre-draftkings. It was started, and ran, by people within the poker community and I honestly thought they were going to hit this one hard and become bazillionares 😂. They worked hard, software is great, it had an earrrrrrly start and they were pioneers in a sense, at least for me and us from the poker world.

    They just didn’t get the big backing that FanDuel and draftkings did. I mean, as big as they are, we have to remember that DK and FD are STILL not profitable. So, while nit as big as they hoped or I thought, I guess it still was a good success for those cardrunners guys because they sold it and got a decent amount for it for its time. If they had the millions DK and FD did to spend on commercials, there’s no doubt in my mind they’d be as big and probably bigger.

    If they are going, It’ll be sad to see them go. I’ve tried playing there a little over the past few years but it’s been all but deserted, except for a handful of loyalists that somehow have kept the site running for the last few years.

    They are a bunch of liars guys. I emailed them when I didn’t see any games leading up to opening day. I got a response saying something along the lines of “due to other competing business interests we have, we will not have any games the first week of the season”. I emailed them back asking why there were no games posted in the second week. No response, SHOCKER!

    How is DK and FD not profitable? 99.9% or the contest fill.

  • LagunaDude

    I got the same email Ravensfan. I also emailed them a couple times since then and haven’t received a response. Scott would always answer quickly but I wonder if he’s even there now. It’s just a bummer they aren’t communicating. At least when Feud was going down Eddie would get into chat and give us some idea what was happening. They haven’t posted NHL playoff contests yet so I’m thinking they might stop after the last day of NBA regular season. That will be a real bummer. The only sites left will be the big ones offering the same generic products.

    I can’t believe someone can’t capitalize on the success of Draft Street and get a similar product on the market.

    they still have a ton of expenses outside of possible overlay

  • LagunaDude

    I think the site is done. Thanks for the great communication these past few weeks. RIP.

  • teksurgical

    live drafts we did last night are canceled and refunded, lobby is empty now. Uggggh I wish NBA ran til the end, but much respect to DraftDay for supporting Live Drafts and other game types besides salary cap. I will never understand why sal cap players don’t even try live drafts but they don’t. It is possible to maybe enter just 99 lineups + 1 snake draft instead of 100 lineups? Doesn’t matter now, but yes RIP DD…

  • troveur

    It was a favorite 2 years ago before they sold out. Now? DD is 100% Dead. RIP.

    So has anyone seen their “best of breed” software?

  • scsa1998

    RIP to the site that paid for my Disney trip back in the day.

  • Melissa

    I think it is starting to sink in now …

  • Ravenfan

    HMMMMMM, yep, as I predicted. They have been leading us along for weeks. Can’t even cash out points to play in contests, scam artists 100%

  • Ravenfan

    you are being sarcastic right?

  • chronoxiong

    So who’s left?

  • wab80
