Moving the model the financial markets would be good, though this is a lot more regulated than gambling, and I imagine there would be a lot more red tape involved.

If this model was applied to financial markets, it would have to be decided whether the website is deemed as offering financial advice, and if so, it would have to be regulated accordingly.

Still, I'd like to see it happen.

Very interesting post re what can best be described as "fantasy betting". I too don't know what took them so long, but this is a long overdue homage to the now decades old phenom of Fantasy Baseball, Football etc. For many years corporations, lawfirms, schools and most other orgs haave been plagued by their employees rabid passion for the fantasy leagues. Like here, all for bragging rights and, hush hush,a few bucks.

The sports betting take will have the same rabid following and the contest application will kick start the passion.

And as for the audience's willingness to fork over a few bucks for the sage advice of the best and the brightest from the dark world of fantasy betting, you can count on it. Many in the fantasy sports world think they could assemble and run a sports team as well, if not better, than the owners. No doubt, when it comes to betting, the arm chair Jimmy the Greeks (dating myself)out there can't wait to stake the same claim.

More importantly, who do you like to take the NLCS this year?
