    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.

    yep

    I enjoyed playing DD games far more than playing on any other site

    plus, now we have no chat of course

  • LagunaDude

    yis, I think you can always join their rake-free H2Hs while you’re a beginner or intermediate. However, they don’t have multi-match blocker so someone else can take all your contests. I asked them about that and they said it was coming. I don’t know if you can create private contests. Hang in there Melissa. When this site gets their NHL chat back up you’ll feel better.

    You sure they will put up an NHL chat with the season being almost over ? It is playoff time tho so maybe eh…

    You are welcome to use it now, but it will not get much traffic since we do not have it posted on site :) You can access it here: https://rotogrinders.com/live/chat You will see the NHL chat on the left side of the screen in the channel menu.

  • yisman

    Yeah you can create private h2h. Why doesn’t someone set up a chat site? I know you can do it just not sure how cause I suck at computering.

    Email FantasyDraft and tell them they need to have a chat room. I already did. :-) They apparently have Eddie there and he was the guy running Feud chat so he can tell them what to do. He was a good dude.

  • Melissa

    My NHL teams are done for the season aww … Raps still in it tho !

    This is just bleeping hilarious. And so dead on. It also applies to the discussions that go on in the MLB forum nightly. Thanks for posting, needed a good laugh. Gonna post it in the mlb forum and ask people which one they are…

  • LagunaDude

    Melissa I see you in GrindersLive sometimes but you make 1 post then leave. You gotta stick around a while! Let’s try to get the gang back together there. Sorry about NHL. :( I don’t think the Raps are gonna be around much longer either…

    I don’t count Yahoo cause who the hell is going on with that as last I seen parent company may go BK.

    Yahoo has $8B in cash and assets, I think we’ll be ok. Verizon (who is acquiring Yahoo) has $27B in cash and assets.

    Well I called it, but not happy to be right. The news was pretty clear it was going under, I just hate that they didn’t promote it the right way but it is what it is.

  • yisman

    invites for our league sent to mendobruce and hugo

    we have a pretty good chunk of the active DD community in the DK league now

    Oh you guys are playing on DK. I’m on FanDuel right now doing mlb and golf. I did get some DK invites from a few dd user’s in my e-mail but i didn’t join cuz i’m not playing on there. FD is kind of cool for mlb you get late swap and points for quality starts. I won money last night on there but it still wasn’t as exciting as even losing money on dd. That experience was still so much more fun then these other sites. smh

    yep

    I’m playing a lot less volume now

    on DD I’d be in chat and play people who needed to fill a game. Now it’s just a lot less fun.

  • LagunaDude

    I agree yisman. It was fun chatting and filling games while we were all there. I’m not playing as much either. I play some on DK but not as much. I just started looking for H2Hs a few days ago. I think I like FantasyDraft the best. I’m playing a little on FD but I think it’s soooo bad. The interface is terrible. I just emailed them today and asked them how I could check my lineups without clicking on every contest and they said you couldn’t do it. Can you believe that? Hopefully someone will set up a chatroom. I can’t believe they don’t understand how everyone liked DS and DD and how the chat made it such a great experience. Also, is it that hard to have snakes? DS, Feud and DD all had them. All you need is a few bigger ones to fill and you’d think they’d make money on the rake.

    mad I just figured out you get points for quality starts. Gotta pay more attention….

  • yisman

    fantasydraft has my contests and my lineups

    click my lineups and if you don’t see the lineup, click on the sport

    it shows for me

  • bigticket

    DraftDay was the best site and it wasnt even close in the early days. They also had the best support and personalized help when you needed it. Andrew always seemed to make things right. I miss the early days of DFS and the chat on Draftday with Thundernuts, Madnkrazy, MplsAce, Brit, RP2012, and several others I’m forgetting. It made sweating the contests that much better. Sadly when Andrew and them sold the site thats when I stopped playing there as I really trusted them always to pay quickly and do the right thing. They should have taken off and I’m not sure if lack of advertising was the problem. It was clearly levels beyond what FanDuel provided at the time. I still have some DraftDay Tshirts sitting in the closet!

  • LagunaDude

    I was talking about Fanduel yis. I don’t know why I even play there because I can’t remember the last time I cashed. How you doing on the other sites? I gotta get over the fact there’s no good sites left. Maybe I can see Melissa’s therapist. :)

  • hugo613

    fanduel sucks, I deleted my account 2 weeks prior to dd shutting down. It’s just bunch of stalkers who study 24 hrs a day and try to take advantage of rookies.
