    Like horse racing, fantasy sports has big money behind it so these were carved out of the UIGEA. But fantasy sports - even though legal - is totally unregulated, there's mucho money to be made ... so there's always a risk of some hanky panky going on.

    Anyway... if you'd like Bryan to make a new forum section, send him a PM or pop into the Forum Suggestions and Announcements section and request it. He's always open to suggestions to improve our little home away from home. :thumbsup:

    I see some similarities in the DFS craze with the boom days of online poker before the feds cracked down and Black Friday subsequently happened.

    The hundreds of millions spent by the market leaders on publicity and marketing has reportedly resulted in almost saturation advertising that has given it a massively high profile this year.

    The allegedly "insider" scandal in which a DraftKings employee's winning ratio suddenly soared as high as $350,000 on one contest on a competitor's website has received massive mainstream media coverage and focused political and academic attention on the vertical, with all sorts of experts debating its present legality and whether that should continue.

    Several politicians have already requested a Congressional enquiry, and at least two state AGs have (or are about to) reviewed DFS activity in their states.

    As Mousey has already pointed out, where there's big money, success and a high profile, the politicians and enforcement agencies will be sniffing around to make names for themselves (and reap tax dollars).

    Add the diverse vested commercial interests in sports betting in the USA and i.m.o. it's starting to look as if regulation is inevitable.

    PS Breaking news is that a Grand Jury investigation has been convened in Florida, and a second player class action has been filed in Illinois.

    Agree with Mousey, Rocky. Contact Bryan to start a forum section. I've always wanted to learn the ins and outs of Fantasy Football.

    Up date/ DraftKings Wins Temporary Reprieve, Can Continue To Operate In New York

    By The Associated Press
    Updated December 11, 2015, 5:20 pm

    BOSTON A state appeals court judge is temporarily allowing daily fantasy sports sites DraftKings and FanDuel to keep operating in New York, blocking a lower court ruling while the issue is fully considered.
    State Supreme Court Appellate Division Associate Justice Paul Feinman granted the emergency motion filed by the companies late Friday, several hours after a lower judge ordered them to stop taking business in New York.
