A MESSAGE FROM CEO CAL SPEARS

At the end of a very difficult year I find myself reflecting on how fortunate we are that the sports leagues successfully pushed through extreme circumstances. Nine short months ago the NBA and NCAA suspended play abruptly. Six short months ago there was legit concern there would be no MLB or NFL season. Remarkably, here we are today about to close out an NFL regular season without a single game canceled.

The RG team and community showed incredible resilience throughout 2020 as well. The applications team worked around the clock to add eSports to LineupHQ as new games popped up in the DraftKings lobby. The Projections team woke up well before dawn to edit KBO projections. The community grinded new game types like Australian Rules Football and rallied for poker tourneys to help pass the long nights of no prime time sports.

We now see the light at the end of the tunnel and we’re ready to come out stronger than before. We’re up to over 335,000 RotoGrinders members, with over 12,000 in Discord. We’re committed to having the best tools, content, and team in the industry and we’re improving our product every day. We’re honored to have such a loyal and devoted group of people.

THANK YOU for being a part of RG. Stay safe, and here’s to an incredible 2021!
