BEGINNING OF THE END FOR FANDUEL, DRAFTKINGS: NO FINAL FOUR!

By Annie Ross

Fantasy sports suffered another defeat in the court if public opinion yesterday.

Two days before the Final Four was to begin, the two largest daily fantasy sports sites, FanDuel and DraftKings, announced an agreement with the NCAA to indefinitely suspend contests involving college sports, bowing to pressure from college sports’ governing body.

The decision is the latest in a months-long retreat as government inquiries and popular pressure have increased against fantasy sites, which consider themselves to be offering games of skill but which many see as a kind of casino.

The NCAA considers daily fantasy sports gambling and bars its players and officials from participating in the wagering.
