DraftKings and FanDuel, the leading DFS operators in the US, are suspending all DFS contests on college sports indefinitely. This comes via a deal with the NCAA according to company officials.


The decision was reportedly voluntary on the part of DK and FD. NCAA president Mark Emmert had this to say:

We appreciate and commend DraftKings and FanDuel’s action to stop offering contests involving college, high school and youth sports. This action culminates months of hard work between all parties to reach a place that is good for amateur sports and most importantly, the young people who participate. We will work diligently with our member schools over the coming year to ensure such amateur sports ‘carve outs’ are included in pending states’ legislation.

After this weekends (4/1/16) college basketball games, all collegiate contests will end on both sites.

With countless setbacks to the DFS industry over the past several months, this one comes as the least surprising to our team here at LTFF.

Let's just start fantasy football season already.

I’m a simple man with simple pleasures. As someone who’s always approached life with the attitude that things could be worse, I’ve had an awesome time so far. I've been a fantasy addict for nearly a decade, and I've loved every second of it.

For the record, I never actually played football. I have no doubt that I would get crushed running across the middle for a pass, every single time.
