During the most recent Republican debate, Presidential candidates were asked about the Federal government investigating and/or regulating daily fantasy sports. Jeb Bush and Chris Christie, both fantasy football players, correctly pointed out the Federal government has no business getting involved in fantasy football.
In response to the recent investigations and the Nevada Gaming Control Board's ruling that daily fantasy sports (DFS) is a form of gambling, Fanduel, with the support of DraftKings, is circulating an online Petition to allow daily fantasy sports players to be heard on the subject.
If you agree with the Presidential candidates that the Federal government has no business regulating daily fantasy sports, and you want to "Protect your right to play," go sign Fanduel's Petition to protect daily fantasy sports.
The text of the Petition is simple:
Every year 50 million Americans play 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 not one of them.
Fantasy sports is fundamentally a test of knowledge. I play because I love the competition and the camaraderie. It’s part of what makes sports our favorite 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!
It only takes a second. You simply provide your name, email address, and zip code.
