    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.

    sorry guna, I misread your post

    I was doing ok but lost money yesterday because I faded Coors due to the weather. I normally use Coors but yesterday there was a lot of uncertainty at lock time.

    I had a good lineup at yahoo but lost 80 bucks there and good lineup at DK but lost money there (although that was because I entered a 22 dollar satellite thinking it was overlay, only to have several people join as it locked).

    Wow DD is still fast at emailing back !!! Also told em I really miss DD ! Im trying to figure out how to cashout like which method – Idk how to really use paypal haha

  • LagunaDude

    Is it Scott or Esteban? Maybe someone will take their tools. I still think they had the best player data that was the easiest to access.

    Hey yis do you like Yahoo? I haven’t played there but I’ve looked at it. I’m still leery after I won some season-long NFL a while ago and it took ages to eventually get paid.

  • yisman

    yeah, but not sure how long it’ll last

    strange note: found out Thursday that NY residents can’t play EPL fantasy. Not sure why. It’s in their rules. I’m guessing it’s because they weren’t offering it when the crook Schneiderman banned DFS and the rule was that sites can only offer now things that they offered pre-ban. It’s why I can’t play golf on fantasydraft.

    Hey Draftday gang – it is ThunderRoad. If there are no better alternatives for snake drafts by this fall, I’ll probably be playing on Real Time Sports (formerly FantasyScore) for football and NHL. . .

    where have you been? you were the only guy who would play me nhl snakes above 5 dollars really (occasionally got otherwise but very little) and you disappeared for weeks!

    I wanted to win some of my money back :(

  • jackofalltrades

    Sorry Yis, I was busy with tax time, softball coaching and I withdrew $ from DD once I suspected they were winding down.

    If you find a good snake draft site post it here. Otherwise I hope to see you at Real Time once NFL and NHL seasons roll around again. . .

    Damn, RIP.

    Anyone know where Taylor, Andrew, et;al wound up? Like, what they are doing now? I too left when the orig owners sold. DraftDay was awesome though, no doubt about it. Software is fantastic.

    I would recommend DraftKings. Although financially they are night and day, I’ve noticed similarities. Their software is great and always improving (check out “DK Live as well), and at least one of their orig founding owners, Matt Kalish (Twitter: MattKalish), is super accessible and involved with the community. He has tremendous pull (obviously) and listens to players, engages, and try’s to impliment ideas. Also note old online poker pro era player – Jon Aguiar (Twitter: JonAguiar) aka FatalError on 2+2 has a position there that is similar to a player liaison. I’ve had great success with him too if ever any issues or just to discuss issues.

    Between the remaining 4 large sites, DK is the closest to what DraftDay was. They have chat as well, although it’s not quite the same but you can find it in “Leagues”, which also might be a great area for the old time DraftDay players to congregate and play games, of their choice and making.

    Lastly, I want to say that the most deserving of support is FantasyDraft. I’m worried about them, but they continue to quell my worries and march on, while improving and doing things that are NOT related to a dying company (they just bailed out a site and covered players balances, and just days ago came out with a fully functional iOS app). They seem to be very stable and ran with the future fully in mind. For size, higher payout % and just not DraftKings or FanDuel, FantasyDraft is clearly the place.

    Good luck guys

  • yisman

    we do have a draftday league on DK for survivors of DD’s suicide

  • LagunaDude

    yis how do I join that league?

  • LagunaDude

    I see it now. I couldn’t see it using safari. I had to use Chrome. I don’t see a chat feature like nosuckout said. Let me know if you find it.

  • yisman

    I don’t know of any chat feature

  • LagunaDude

    Max found me on fanduel. He’s fangeek77777. We need to get him into our DK league.

    RIP DraftDay. It was my first ever DFS site and through a freeroll and extreme luck, I’ve never used my own money for DFS. Cheers.

  • Nosuckoutplz

    Hi guys, I’m taking a couple screenshots to try show you where it is.

    Go to the “leagues” tab, choose the league you want, that’ll bring you to that leagues lobby. At the bottom are some options, one of them being chat.

    Clicking the chat icon will bring you to the leagues chat. It is real-time, has notification ability (you can turn notification off/on), and also shows a red numerical marker for each new message posted since you last looked, from the general leagues tab, where all your leagues are listed.

    Good luck and have fun

  • yisman

    ok I’ll take a look

  • yisman

    It must be just on the app or something.

    I’m on a computer and there is no chat option in the leagues lobby, or within the league itself.

  • LagunaDude

    I can’t find it either. I’ve been emailing Playdraft and they say they’re going to have chat live within the next month. Keep a lookout and maybe we can get the gang back together there. I’ve tried a few of their live drafts and they’re really generic (MLB – 2 P, 3H) but at least they’re trying.

  • Melissa

    Leagues lobby page isnt working for me at DK or id join more games sorry guys ! Still trying to decide between IPad or Laptop … then we shall play some more !

  • LagunaDude

    Hey Melissa. Please email DK about that. I’ve been emailing them all week about that for my iPad and iPhone. They keep telling me to use Chrome instead of Safari but that doesn’t help. I can see it using Chrome on my laptop (but not iPad) but why the hell do we have to use Chrome anyway? Something is wrong. Not only can I not see the Leagues page but I also can’t see the individual sports at the top and the different games (50/50, H2h, etc) at the left. I also can’t get to the contest posted by AF and others. It’s super annoying.

  • Nosuckoutplz

    Hi guys, if you have twitter, I’ve had great success with their twitter support account (at draftkings). Maybe try that.

    Also, the chat I was talking about IS in the app. The iOS app to be specific, and I’m not sure if it’s anywhere else, but sounds like it isn’t.

    Good luck and have fun

  • LagunaDude

    Where is everyone these days? We gotta get Max and cod back. I see stv in some fantasydraft tourneys but not many others. We should get a group together over there. Draft has snakes and they say they’re working on chat but I’m not seeing it.
