    I got my refund from DK for the Friday Showdowns that I entered, but haven’t seen a penny for the $35+ I spent for the 4 day even though they removed those contests from the Live Page.

    EDIT: Nevermind, just got my $40 added to my account.

    Good thing I deposited on DK last night and got their $20 free that I will just have to WD and use on something personal now

    Wonder if I get an extra month of RG Premium since professional sports don’t exist anymore

    Really ? You will withdraw $20 to spend on something personal ? How small of a budget do you live off that you can’t leave $20 or $40 in your account for a month ?

    Wow are you kidding me. I was in the top 300 in the MM and top 40 in the Pressure Putt. F that. Seriously why can’t they just play without fans. MJ fucking played with the flu putting everyone at risk and was called a hero and now they cancel everything when no ones even sick.

    Lol..the MJ flu game comparison.

    Huh? There’s very little difference for healthy individuals. South Korea has tested everyone and found it to be a 0.5% death rate and 0.05% for healthy individuals, the exact same as the flu. You only think it’s scarier cause of what you read.

    My parents 50 year old friend got it and was quanrantined starting 1.5 weeks ago. He is 100% fine now although they are forcing him to stay in 5 more days or so.

    This ain’t HIV. No one here on this board who can type a sentence on the computer will die at a higher rate than the flu. This just adversely affects one particular group of people which is old people with preexisting conditions who were high risk to any cold or flu but now are just at a higher risk. Like Tom Hanks is 60 he’ll be alright since he’s fit.

    Not sure how people don’t understand this. The economic impact of this virus is FAR MORE devastating than the benefits of cancelling events. There will be more suicides from this than helathy people dying of the virus. The amount of retirement funds lost, small businesses closed, jobs losses from this is devastating. Just think about the hourly workers and vendors who work PGA events….if they shut down the entire year which I hope they don’t, I bet a few will commit suicide now which is so sad.

    I maxed the $9.99 on FD and it wasn’t looking great, so I’m pretty ok with this. Of course, I’m pretty bummed that we don’t have anything to watch/sweat.

  • jeffgo33

    Glad people are getting their refunds. Would like to get mine, too lol

    On the positive side you can now get a great deal on a plane ticket for that 3 week euro vacation.

    Sweet baby Jesus this sucks. Was off to a good start and most importantly my Happy Meal lineup was my best day 1 lineup … THAT is the one that will keep me up at night 😂 … and yeah … the financial impact of this thing is staggering already and going to hurt people way more than actually getting Covid 19 … well … except if your older and have issues.

    I feel like it is an over reaction because of the low death rate as well … but they have to try and contain and slow down the spread rate … and if I got it … and then passed it to my elderly Mother … and she died … I might think about it differently. But damn … the economic impact globally … airlines, cruises, tourism, large entertainment events, hotels, restaurants … cities like Austin canceling SXSW something like 350M to the city banked every year gone. I am in hotels and we have two properties in Texas already majorly impacted with group room blocks canceled and wiped out with groups canceling their trips and a big unexpected loss in revenue. 2020 Budgets are FUBAR.

    I’m gonna get crazy and leave all the money in my account on DK, but I have $20 free I could spend however I want now. Might go hit up the dollar menu and McDonalds

    Even if what you say is true, newsflash, the Flu sucks. We don’t have a vaccine for it…if we ignore it, a lot more people will die. I’d rather that not happen. My parents are old.

    I just saw they cancelled wow…

  • SirJohnDaly

    So my late show down when shows one hole left and I’m not going to get paid out? Draft kings can’t be that dumb to screw over their customers like that right?

  • carolinacrusher

    So 200 people can’t be on 400 acres together but we all have to go to work tomorrow

  • starstx

    I read something that no one under the age of 55 has died from Coronavirus and usually people also have underlying issues … asthma, weaker immune systems, respiratory issues. I believe it may have a higher death rate than the flu in the elderly.

    The good news is Gobert had been out sick … said he felt better and was ready to play and then found out he had it … it is not taking healthy people down. And this is where I disagree with the hysteria around it … it is not the bubonic plague or a death sentence if you get it … and I guarantee there are a bunch of people who think it is based on the craziness around it.

    I’m curious what happened on Thursday that caused them to pull the plug, after already deciding to go ahead with the event.

    CT Pan get to them?

    I was preparing to go to bed a few hours ago. Usually West Coast sports keeps me up late and I miss golf that begins before 8 AM, but I figured with no sports, I could go to sleep early and get up early. Just before I go to sleep, they canceled it.

  • jeffgo33

    How long are people waiting to contact support and inquire why they haven’t been refunded when others have?

    But then we need to go to a full 100% lockdown like China or Italy is doing now. This cancellation of certain events and then you see tons of people still roaming around LA or NYC like it’s no issue is still gonna cause massive spreading. Like it’s one or the other.

    This cancellation without full lockdown is the worst since it’ll still spread and it destroys the economy and people’s jobs and retirement without the intended benefit.

    Doing the middle is the absolute worst idea. The media also doesn’t help by reporting cherry picked statistics to get clicks and scare people.

    Trump is also being an idiot he should allow all testing to be free at any time like South Korea. Like why the hell does he need 10 billion for the military. Give that money to make all the tests free. Dude is a complete idiot and now the only good thing about him the stock market already crashed/crash more. Also banning travel from Europe. What does that do? Like it’s spreading here with or without people from Europe.

    I completely agree. We should’ve done mass testing and social distancing a while ago.

    I haven’t been refunded for anything yet either. Four day classic contests are gone, 1st round showdown and tiers are still showing as live and no refunds received yet.

  • Awon1

    As a sports fan I’m not happy about this and I’m also not happy since my stock account is taking a hit, but I’m most mad at how badly this will harm low income families and people who have their own businesses or loans or work hourly jobs in like travel, hospitality, restaurants, etc. I volunteer at a low income neighboorhood in LA on the weekends and a lot of them are gonna get hit really hard and they don’t even know it yet since they don’t actually read the media as much.

    USA couldn’t have handled this any worse. Trump, Republicans and Democrats, the media, all these sporting event heads, etc this couldn’t have been handled worse. Everyone’s just being reactionary. Like NBA cancelled only after Gobert tested positive. Cmon you either be proactive cancel everything before there’s anything at all or don’t cancel anything because it doesn’t really kill helathy people similar to flu. But everyone’s just being reactionary. Trump should have prepared for this and mandated automatic and free testing from the get go. This would solve so many issues. He might actually issue a mandatory quarantine soon like China but again he’ll be late. Shoulda done that when the virus hadn’t spread yet. Now the spread is almost guaranteed. I can tell because when I walk out in public no one actually is that concerned. Yes they shouldn’t be concerned since it won’t really kill them but they also guarantee it’ll spread.

    Probably peer pressure. You look terrible if all other leagues cancel and you don’t. Just looks like you want the money.

    NASCAR might not actually cancel since it’s the most “conservative” sport but I would say they will.
