For those who were disappointed in last year’s Fantasy Football Convention being canceled, you may not be getting any justice for it in the near future. The judge overseeing Tony Romo’s fantasy-football convention’s case has just ruled in favor of the NFL, giving them a partial summary judgement.
This basically means that the case is going to be thrown out without going to trial. This is a huge setback for The Fan Expo, LLC, who filed the case against the NFL after they canceled their convention last year, saying that “the league applies its gambling policy selectively.”
Romo’s side will now file an appeal against the judgement on the grounds that the NFL committed a breach of contract with the convention. The NFL cancelled the convention in the wake of the allegations that daily fantasy leagues, like FanDuel and DraftKings, were illegal gambling and violated the NFL’s policies already in place.
This is certainly going to be an interesting case to watch over the next few weeks, especially if you are a big fan of fantasy football.
