    Wrong. It's only in the state of Nevada.

    If true, then not just a HSS show sponsor. Half the sports radio talk show hosts will be similarly looking for a new sponsor tomorrow.

    Draft Kings and Fan Duel are absolutely everywhere lately in terms of advertising.

    It's obviously gambling and I can't believe they've made it this far.

    ESPN just broke the story and when it went to commercial, sure enough it was a Draft Kings commercial. Awkward.

    Me neither. They've both spread a shit ton of money around and they get around the gambling nonsense because of a silly little loophole. For some reason, they're allowed to call it "fantasy sports" because you're betting on individuals and not actual team outcomes. Total bullshit, it's still laying money on the line.

    Mike Francesa was going crazy on them about a week or so ago and when he cut to commercial, it was the same thing.

    They shit the bed when the employees starting making bets based on the actual bets of others. That's gaming the system.

    What's to keep the websites from just setting up fake winners? How is it regulated? The online poker sites had all sorts of scams going from inside and outside.

    You clearly don't understand how things unwind in this world. They are dead men walking.

    Exactly. That's why they won't be around for next year's football season. Not enough controls and there is no way to guarantee the sites cannot be manipulated.

    Please God - you can even bring back the farting horses but I can't take another Fan Duel advertisement. Oh, and that doesn't mean more Europe >> Final Countdown is OK.

    most casino games are rigged except maybe baccarat & craps. but i cant bet a few bucks against the crummy detroit lions. so dumb, and why's weed still illegal. its 1000x better than alcohol
