Progressive Sports Challenge Bites The Dust

There is one less alternative in the fantasy sports world. Progressive Sports Challenge has stopped running. They ran fantasy baseball and football leagues for six seasons. Despite a court ruling saying leagues dont own their stats and cannot demand a fantasy sport liscence, they received threatening letters from the NFL demanding they get liscenced. This is following baseball's lead. The people at Progressive Sports Challenge are in the right as far as I can tell but have neither the money nor patience to fight the NFL and MLB so they are closing up shop. It's a sad day when any fantasy sports alternative is killed by greed of the major sports leagues. I hope this doesn't spread to the NHL.
