FANDUEL LAUNCHES PLAYERS PETITION
20th October, 2015 at 08:08:22
Attacks political claims that its DFS activities are not legal.
Daily fantasy sports market leader FanDuel has commenced a push-back on political allegations that its activities constitute gambling and are therefore legally questionable.
On Monday the company launched a player petition, asserting:
"Lawmakers in Washington D.C., Nevada, and elsewhere have questioned our right to exist. Knowingly or not, they have misrepresented who we are and what we do. Now, we need you to stand with us to show that millions of fans believe fantasy sports should remain legal and accessible to all who love the game."
The company is asking players to sign the petition, which declares:
"Every year 50 million Americans play online fantasy sports. I am one of them.
"There are many problems facing our nation, but passionate sports fans that want to connect with our favorite players and teams is hardly one of them.
"Fantasy sports is fundamentally a test of knowledge. I play because I love the competition and the camaraderie. In fact, I think fantasy sports is what makes watching sports an American pastime.
"I oppose any measure that would ban online fantasy sports. And to anyone looking to end this game I say: Let us play!"
