In this episode of LABO, I attend the #FantasyForAll rally outside the New York Attorney General's Office following reports that NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has deemed daily fantasy sports a form of sports gambling, and therefore illegal under NY law. I interview with protesters who clearly voiced their opinion that daily fantasy sports come nowhere close to the realm of sports gambling and that, if anything, they should be regulated as opposed to be being banned outright.
In this episode, I revisit the domestic violence dispute between Cowboys DE Greg Hardy and his ex-girlfriend Nicole Holder after Deadspin.com released photos and other key evidence from the case.
