Cash Drops and Keystrokes: The Dark Reality of Sports Betting and Daily Fantasy Games

Pete Rose today: Draftkings addict? What player and/or manager is? Monday, July 27, 2015

Apparently there's a gambling disconnect between real and fantasy games such that it's OK to construct and essentially bet on fantasy teams that represent real results of real players in real games.  That's the legal loophole in most states through which sports leagues that oppose real gambling on their real games have driven through with a vengeance.  But has their greed blinded them to all too obvious questions?

Are players, managers and coaches allowed to participate, i.e., gamble on fantasy games played by fantasy teams whose results are derived from the performances of those same players, managers and coaches? ...
