If you view sports of almost any kind (football, baseball, basketball), you know about Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS).
Sports programs are dedicated to discussing fantasy leagues; games are inundated with as many fantasy commercials as beer ads (yikes!); fantasy players hold up giant checks showing their 6 and 7 figure winnings.
The question that a lot of states are asking is: Is Daily Fantasy Sports about “skill” or “luck?” If it’s skill (like trading on the stock exchange), are employees of DFS companies taking advantage of their knowledge to win – akin to insider trading on Wall Street? If it’s luck, is DFS gambling?

What’s your take? Will Fantasy Sports, as we know it, be around for awhile? Or is the end in sight?
