"I'm shocked! Shocked I say!"
I've been marveling at the Big Data aspects of their ad campaigns. They can tell when and what you were watching from the promo-code. I'm trying to wrap my head around how much is going in if they can pay out as much as they say.

On Monday, DraftKings and FanDuel released a joint statement that said "nothing is more important" than the "integrity of the games we offer," but offered few specifics about how they keep contests on the level.
Sounds like Roger Goodell crafted that statement.
Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys and Robert K. Kraft of the New England Patriots have stakes in DraftKings, which recently struck a three-year deal with the N.F.L. to become a partner of the league's International Series in Britain, where sports betting is legal.
I would think that any sports betting within a team should be viewed as a conflict of interest.

All gambling operations are inherently corrupt. But a fool and his money, etc., etc..
