Over the past two years, with your support, we’ve gone from a passion project conceived by a couple of DFS players to a leader in daily fantasy sports. It has been our pleasure to have you as part of our community and to serve you the best content we can. Seemingly overnight, however, everything changed and sports as we know them disappeared. But we’re not going to throw in the towel. This community is too important to us to put it on hold indefinitely. Now, more than ever, we need to maintain whatever normalcy we can and continue to support each other, so we’re committed to doing what it takes to keep us together.
