    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.

    It’s a Sad day in the DFS world. :(

    DD is shutting down and it was by far the best site ever created. SMH

    The message is on the top of the site now. You can read it there. The chat won’t work.

    All the loyal user’s out there from the site i’m sure are as heartbroken as I am. I have been part of the site since day one and i was hooked from the start. I even tried to HELP make it grow. But they didn’t do what they needed to do with the advertising to keep people joining. All the scrutiny with the govt. and the FD employee cheating and playing on DK screwed everything up for the DFS small sites. It’s a real shame. So many sites have closed down that I were playing at but this is the one i hoped would stay strong. Especially since it was my favorite. But i could tell it wasn’t growing but just staying in one spot and spinning. Everything was running by automation. Well, for the most part. They would put up games, if people would ask in the chat and answer e-mails. They had a wide variety of games too unlike the other sites. The interface was just immaculately better then the other sites. Gameplay, the scoring, everything.

    I’m happy they want to continue building the software and maybe selling it to a dfs site that can use it. Hopefully that would include the interface. lol Anyways, It’s hard to type this right now while hockey is on. I’ll be around playing on the other sites like DK and FD and i hope to keep in touch with everyone. I hope everyone that was playing on DD is registered on here. If you are not. Get registered!! because it is the best site for DFS research and analysis with tons of perks.They also have a great community on here. Also, let us know what your name was on DD and new user name if you are using it elsewhere. So we’ll know if we see you in our games, and of course to say HI on here. I use this same name pretty much everywhere as most probably know. That’s it for now. DD will forever live on. Let’s keep the chat rolling. Oh and Good luck in your games tonight everyone!!

    Peace!!

    If I were DraftDay Build up that software and interface to an upstart that has crazy backing. Sorry but if DK and FD merge there is basically 1 left. I don’t count Yahoo cause who the hell is going on with that as last I seen parent company may go BK.

    very sad :(

    as I told people the end was nigh when they didn’t post MLB, scott disappeared, thunderroad disappeared, no one monitored chat, e-mails mostly went unanswered, ptarz disappeared…

    I wonder if the bot will run into a problem when it tries to automatically join all the contests as usual and there are no contests open.

    Yeah we knew it was coming to an end. Like i said everything was automated. Running games, the scoring, payouts, deposits. They didn’t have to be there for anything. When they weren’t updating salaries or answering e-mails you knew there was something up. It was a one of a kind site. Nothing like it and i’ll miss it terribly. Uhh i knew anderson was going to get a shutout and i take Holtby. Unreal. I’ll miss the chat the most.

    Gibson was never getting a shutout. lol I just hope Dubnyk doesn’t either. Nice to see you Melissa. Nice hat!! not

  • Melissa

    Hahaha that’s what I was trying to say we call a touque/tuque/toque ! Like Tom Brady wears in the winter games )

    Petey I was about to look at nba pickem but there were no games

  • Melissa

    Earlier ^ but I guess u figured that

  • petey28

    pizza next HNIC night?

  • petey28

  • yisman

    no more snakes

    ever

    no more chat

    I tried the chat here but it goes too fast and I didn’t see anyone from DD so I left

    no more reading AF ranting and quitting NHL daily

    no more petey bracket

    no more 5x TCs which I still had and I was halfway to keeping it for May

    no more bot mass-joining every contest and never chatting because it was not programmed to do so

    but don’t worry, the bot will continue to join every NHL contest on all other sites, including 50+ lineups in the big GPPs.

  • LagunaDude

    Hey Melissa. This is a sad day, but I think we could all see it coming for a while. Jump into GrindersLive and we can get the gang back together, at least for chat. Try FantasyDraft for NHL. We gotta keep some of these other sites going.

  • LagunaDude

    Melissa join GrindersLive and we can have better chat discussing the players we like. I think there are sports-specific chatrooms as well, You could rule the hockey chat. I have to say I’m really bummed about this. Their interface was by far the best and I can’t believe some site can’t support chat and live drafts. We need to put or heads together and figure something out. It’s too important to ignore.

  • Melissa

    I checked out that site Laguna and I might try it out after I get over losing DraftDay hah

  • yisman

    how do I even get into hockey chat? when I go to grinders live I don’t see how to sort

    draftday died too early

    last night I lost 100 bucks because 2 guys passed me in a double up when Getzlaf scored a meaningless empty netter with 7 seconds left

    he wanted to pad his stats and screw me over
