    DraftKings, FanDuel lose big, ordered to shut down in New York




    http://deadline.com/2015/12/fanduel...unction-granted-eric-schneiderman-1201665155/

    UPDATE, 1:06 PM: Hours after having the plugged pulled by a state judge, DraftKings and FanDuel are back in business in New York state – at least for now. An Appeals Court has granted the fantasy sports sites a temporary stay of the ruling of Judge Manuel Mendez this morning.

    it's ruining the game--so I approve of this nonsense

    Wasn't it DraftKings that had the commercial with those two palookas that looked like they had Down's Syndrome at the moment they allegedly won one million dollars??

    Enough said...lol

    I dislike "fantasy football" but I dislike politicians sticking their greedy snouts into private affairs a lot more. People should be allowed to live as they see fit as long as it's not hurting anyone. But God forbid somebody figures out a scheme involving scamming the whole paper money "fiat currency" scam. You have a Roman coin from long ago? It still has some value. You have a $500 paper bill? Guess what that's going to be worth in a thousand years.

    Annoying sleazy adds that felt like a Stern related ashley madison targeted audience.

    The NFL supports this shit. Go fuck yourself and your hot wife Goodell.

    It really hasn't. It was super hot about 5 years ago and now it's completely dead.
