re: Update on DFS - its not over til it’s over
I know there is something in the law where the governor can still pass it. But I don’t know what it actually is. Maybe someone smarter than me knows it.

For fantasy: Danny Martiny, Karen Carter Peterson, Sherman Mack
For sports betting: Cameron Henry, Dustin Miller, Sherman Mack, and all the republicans in the House Appropriations Committee

Update on DFS - FINAL DAY to pass
So no DFS this year? Who do we email to voice our displeasure??



Not for 2yrs apparently, really getting hard to live in this state given the idiots running it. I know in the grand scheme of things this isn’t a big deal, but shite just keeps adding up. Anyone with any sense is tired of the grifters in the state legislature doing everything they can for their own personal gain and fricking over the tax paying citizen. No wonder no businesses want to locate here, who would and have to deal with these buffoons?

I was about to sign a contract with a company to write articles every week. Now I can’t. Wonder if the government will reimburse me now.

re: Update on DFS - its not over til it’s over
Disgusted in the outcome of this. The public voted overwhelmingly in support of passing legislation for Fantasy Sports last fall.

This is a non-partisan post, just laying out the facts of what happened.

Fantasy Sports was set to pass with relative ease, however Jefferson Parish Republican Danny Martiny was upset at Jefferson Parish Republican Cameron Henry for not supporting his Sports Betting bill. Danny Martiny stonewalled the voting of the Fantasy Sports Bill in the Senate as time expired, thus we have neither. However, the public never voted on Sports Betting, we voted for the passage of Fantasy Sports. Martiny had no right to sabotage the Fantasy Sports bill.

As far as voting goes, in the House the Fantasy Sports Only bill was voted against by 22 Republicans and 1 Democrat. In the Senate, 10 Republicans voted against the bill vs 2 Democrats (John Milkovich is not a Democrat).

It's highly disappointing that the people spoke up and said we wanted access to Fantasy Sports wagering, yet we were overruled by a bunch of Status Quo politicians that constantly take actions to keep this state set back 100 years.

The worst part is that this would have provided a ton of additional tax revenues that would come straight from the Fantasy Sports companies and not directly from our citizens!

Imagine that, we are now being passed up by Mississippi, Alabama and Arkansas! You can wager on Fantasy Sports in all of those other states, but not here! It's amazing that we're OK with coming up dead last in everything and yet we keep electing the same crotchety Out-of-Touch old men that have represented this state forever. It's passed time we got some young people involved that respect the will of the people and don't immediately suck up to large corporate interests.

Well said. Frustrating... DFS is harmless.

You can set it to where you are actually in Louisiana but the websites you go to think you are in another state.

Have you personally had success with a VPN? I tried several and Draftkings/FanDuel still detected my location as being in Louisiana and I was denied entry.

What happens when you try to withdraw your winnings and draftkings sends you a W9 to fill out?

So for this you’d need a desktop and couldn’t set lineups on your phone correct? That would help me somewhat, but for basketball/baseball I’m usually at the office until 6. Also, if you ever did win a big jackpot is there any chance it could be voided?
