    Amazing that in state after state, AGs are issuing their statements and not one has even come close to the self-aggrandizing, grandstanding display that the NY AG put on. A little food for thought for the people in the ‘he was just doing his job’ camp – he was not ‘just doing his job’; you don’t have to act like you’re auditioning for a low budget movie with the ‘not on my watch’, ‘scheme to defraud the people’ and other extreme nonsense that he was spewing in order to issue a statement.

    Pennsylvania seems like a fairly likely place to receive a DFS ban. Heavy casino influence in many different parts of the state, and both religious conservatives/big gov’t liberals who have both been hostile to DFS through this process.

    I’m actually shocked DFS has made it this far. Perhaps it’s because, with AC being so close and the casino culture growing so rapidly, gambling in PA is a bit more normalized.

    I’m thinking a heavy Gross Revenue Tax at about 14%. Ironically enough a big government Philadelphia State Senator maybe proposing a DFS bill similar to VA in the coming weeks

    There is also a “study” being conducted on DFS here. PA is a dominant factor state unlike NY and for the most part the appetite is more look for a buck rather than a ban.

    Well technically White House Tennessee which is 35 minutes north of Nashville. Which is also why I will shoot over to Kentucky everyday if Tennessee does ban dfs. I’m only 20 minutes from the Kentucky boarder.

    Some of these states on the border could start some nice niche businesses, free wifi, coffee shop, etc… hangout for dfs outcasts.

    Oakland. Commercial Appeal had same info today as Tennessean did yesterday. Daily murders here trumps other news.

    Need to get some bills passed in DFS favor. This isnt something that needs to be wiped off the face of the planet or anything of the such. I agree it could use some regulation for sure though. Make it more friendly for casual players. That makes the community stronger and if people actually see different names atop the leaderboards… They may not be so convinced that its a scam after further investigation. I know that was my initial opinion after seeing commercials and reading reviews about the big sites.

    From Knoxville here, Is anyone else getting the banned state pop up on the DK app over the last week or two? I haven’t had that pop up on the regular site just get in on the app. Could be a location isssue but could be readiness for the up coming software. When using the app from my phone I can go back to the lobby after cancelling the pop up and then it lets me enter contest.
