Daily Fantasy Sports
Just watched the Vikings go to the first in their division which was fun, don't do Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS), but here is some info aout them. Sports programs are dedicated to discussing fantasy leagues; games are inundated with as many fantasy commercials as beer ads (yikes!); fantasy players hold up giant checks showing their 6 and 7 figure winnings. The question that a lot of states are asking is: Is Daily Fantasy Sports about “skill” or “luck?” If it’s skill (like trading on the stock exchange), are employees of DFS companies taking advantage of their knowledge to win – akin to insider trading on Wall Street? If it’s luck, is DFS gambling? Click here for a great story in the Washington Post that personalizes Daily Fantasy Sports. What’s your take? Will Fantasy Sports, as we know it, be around for awhile? Or is the end in sight?
