By Nate Raymond NEW YORK (Reuters) - Daily fantasy sports companies DraftKings and FanDuel urged a New York judge on Wednesday to spare them from a potentially crippling shutdown in one of their top markets by ruling that their contests do not constitute illegal gambling. "Chance pervades fantasy sports," McGee said. The hearing in New York Supreme Court came after the state's attorney general, Eric Schneiderman, went to court last week seeking to halt DraftKings and FanDuel from offering the highly popular online games in New York, which has more daily fantasy sports players than any other state, according to Eilers Research.
(Reuters) - Johnny Manziel's short-lived reign as starting quarterback for the Browns does not signal the end of his career in Cleveland but rather an obstacle for him to overcome, coach Mike Pettine said on Wednesday. Manziel, known by the moniker "Johnny Football" from his standout collegiate years at Texas A&M, was demoted by the National Football League club on Tuesday, one day after a partying video of him hit social media sites. The 22-year-old had been named the Browns' starter for the rest of the season after throwing for 372 yards in a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Nov. 15, but has since been replaced by veteran quarterback Josh McCown.
