    Update (11/10/15):On Tuesday, the New York Times reported that state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman ordered DraftKings and FanDuel, the country’s two biggest daily fantasy sites, to cease betting operations in the state, contending that participation in daily fantasy games constituted illegal gambling under state law. "It is clear that DraftKings and FanDuel are the leaders of a massive, multibillion-dollar scheme intended to evade the law and fleece sports fans across the country," Mr. Schneiderman said. In a statement, FanDuel responded, "This is a politician telling hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers they are not allowed to play a game they love and share with friends, family, co-workers and players across the country."

    ridiculous. "fleece" sports fans. Because they're forced to deposit money on there and create teams. The government says "no fun allowed!!!"

    Why do some politicians feel the need to hold everyone's hand while crossing the street?

    Can't friends, family and co workers still play a game they love among themselves? Just without FanDuel.

    Well, it's gambling. I'm all for them banning it until I can bet on games legally. Anyone who says draft kings isn't gambling, probably believes Howard has real hair.

    they'd rather have you play the lotto & dump your hard earned money into casinos

    parlays are like writing your own lottery ticket w/ decent odds

    sports betting should be 100% legal

    so hypocritical.....espn used to have their own gambling analyst, hank goldberg, for the nfl....

    my local paper had pick em games every sunday.....but any other sport, gambling is looked down on

    college football is perfect for gambling cause every game counts, and live bets on the nba are pretty fun....

    This is true. Poker and sports betting should be allowed if daily fantasy is. I was surprised it went on as long as it did. In general it's just ridiculous that the government feels the need to get involved at all. It's no different than the stock market really.

    I probably spend about a grand every year playing fantasy sports, so I'm little league compared to these high-rollers. I've participated in the same baseball league for twelve years now, and it's never about the money--I won this year, but $3500 isn't life-changing money. It's more about the bragging rights. :owned:

    I really hope they don't fuck this up.

    Not soon enough. Is there nothing more annoying than hearing a grown man talk about his fantasy football team? No there isn't, except people telling stories about things on facebook.

    The government fleeces us every damn day. They haven't figured out how to tax it, so it must be banned. The lottery is gambling, but that's o k because they tax the shit out of you when you win.

    Cunts.
