FSL Version 2.0 and Rediscovering Discover

I wanted to give you a preview of what is coming in just over a week at FSL. We will be releasing what we call version 2.0 of the website. Version 2.0 will include football, the new ranking cap for both football and baseball, a leaderboard for our top players, and a much improved user interface. I almost forgot, we will also start accepting Discover with version 2.0. Those guys are tough negotiators, but they just could not resist joining the revolution in Fantasy Sports. Sorry, but we have no plans on taking Diner's Club.

The only thing missing that we really wanted as part of version 2.0 will be NASCAR. Development continues on this, but NASCAR will be launched shortly after football season begins.

Thanks for being patient with us as we worked on this much improved version of our website. We talked in the past about the great scoring system that we will be using for football, and we will start to reveal the details next week. Also, if you can't wait for our Aug. 18th launch of football, drop an email to support@fantasysportslive.com, and we can let you in on Beta testing next week on our development site. We are incredibly excited about this new release, and we know you guys will love it, so thanks for all the great feedback that helped us define our improvements.

Are you going to add hockey in the fall?

Hockey and Basketball will be added when the season starts. We currently have secured live stat feeds for Baseball and Football, but not the other sports. Hockey may not get the live updates that you see with baseball, but would get updated with the final boxscores as they come in. So the leaderboard, may not be quite the same, but other than that the contests would be very similar. Of cource if we can get the live feeds we will use them, because it makes our contests better.

You guys really need a forum for players to chat and discuss strategies. Is this in the works?

Starting later this month per PayPal’s new user agreement they are banning any transfers related to gambling winnings of any kind, doesn’t mater if it is legal or not legal. Have you guys heard anything from PayPal about this on your end? Are you planning on still doing transfers via PayPal?

Our contests are not gambling by definition. So this is not legal gambling, it is simply not gambling. I don't think we will have any issues with PayPal.
