And they're far more audacious in their advertising methods than the poker sites ever were. The poker sites advertised their play money sites, and let the consumer find their way to the pay money sites. Maybe Draft Kings is doing likewise; I honestly haven't paid attention. Not only that, but the NFL has more clout behind it in Washington than the poker sites ever have had or will have. The existence of these fantasy sites is a severe contradiction to how Congress has treated online poker (which targets the banks), and how the Wire Act is currently interpreted (which is geared toward bettors).

    Just saw this. Thanks for the kudos! Since I'm on a bit of a roll here, I'll expound further.

    The NFL used its clout to carve out an extension for fantasy sports in the Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act. But nobody foresaw the rise of daily fantasy sites like Draft Kings/Fan Duel (Sidebar: Any CFB fan should feel like a fool for concocting conference realignment scenarios rather than exploring how to exploit money-making abilities from fantasy sports. I know I feel that way.). The money pouring into DFS is the same money that would/was going toward online poker.

    Almost everything about the foundation of DFS and online poker is identical (A good piece on one very fundamental tipping point can be found here: http://www.cnbc.com/2015/10/02/onlin...e-winners.html ). Only the perceptions that people have of both are different. The best comparison I can find from a sports perspective is the NFL/AFL in the 1960s. We know how that turned out.

    I expect something similar to happen with DFS and online poker -- the huge difference here is that individual states are free to act on their own perceptions and act accordingly. Online poker and money transactions to online sites are legal in Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey, for example. Pro sports are often afforded huge advantages on the federal level with regard to the national market that individual states simply cannot fight (that dye was cast when baseball received immunity from anti-trust laws; the other major sports expect similar treatment, if not explicitly so). The money that floats in DFS (and previously, online poker) will make this an issue that simply is too big for the states to manage individually. Congress absolutely has to step in and rewrite existing laws to allow both to operate freely in the U.S.
