Fantasy needs to either contain dragons, magic, or scantily clad females. Fantasy football is a bullshiat use of the term.

I can't think of anything more retarded than players of fantasy "sports." They seem to think they're somehow better than those of us that get together to tel each other an interactive, largely improv story.

I'll bet most of those aging jocks secretly wish they could've been math geeks. That's all their game is based on anyway...

lol, just noticed that. actually, he was a late season pickup (for a bye week, i think)

Get all the dragons, wizards and knights you want. Tecmo Bo is still scoring on you.

RatMaster999: 'll bet most of those aging jocks secretly wish they could've been math geeks

I doubt there are many aging jocks playing fantasy football. Fantasy football is mostly a benchwarmer type of game.

But, you know what's douchey? Hating on people's harmless and entertaining (to them) hobby. I think fantasy football is a retarded waste of time, but I'm not going to begrudge someone their enjoyment of it. And your perceived sense of persecution tells me that you're either in high school or never grew past high school.

Seriously: grow up.

Hmmm, from 2007 and TJ is with the Ravens? Something here is confusing to me. Have you just kept the same team from 2007 and this is how they are doing this year?

Somebody posted a link to something on G4? That means there's actually someone out there who watches that crap long enough to see content that isn't a rerun of Cops from 1994.

the teams change with the players, even on older ff rosters. notice julius jones is listed as playing for NO, although that year he was a cowboy. TJ was a bengal that year, and westbrook was an eagle.
 
2010-11-09 08:59:06 PM  
and for the record, TJ hasn't done sh*t with the ravens this year. i thought he'd be a blowout free agent pick up, and all he did was take up valuable roster space.

IIRC the stats after a match include entries for the number of killed and number of eaten players - you could win either by scoring or "by decimation" of the other team.

Freakin' Cyanide. They're making a game based on the Song of Ice and Fire books by George R.R. Martin, and they're vomiting all over what could have been an awesome game concept.

Pssht Eff dragons. I was all about playing Fantasy Football, until it was explained it is NOT about getting all the hottest football players you'd like to shag on one team.

Well, what the hell? Whose friggin fantasy is it then?

Sounds like your "team" is doing poorly this season.

Came for the Blood Bowl reference, leaving happy.

I've been playing the Legendary Edition and it is pretty good so far. There was aproblem with a hack that allowed you to see what your next dice rolls were, but they fixed that.

I think I shall make a Skaven team now....

By the way - does anyone know of a site that does projections for, say, Week 14 or 15 of 2010? Been looking around and haven't found anything - I'd like to do my playoff homework a bit early.

One can simultaneously enjoy RPGs and fantasy football without bursting into flames due to the contradiction of stereotypes! Besides, fantasy football combines stat whoring and real life violence, which are two of my favorite pastimes.


Unpossible! One must be fanatically devoted to one or the other but not both!

Fantasy sports is kinda like D&D for people too uptight to let their inner nerd out.
 
2010-11-10 01:33:03 AM  
Damnit, I've been cracking that same kind of joke about Fantasy Football for years, and now G4 had thought of it....
Which means...nothing, I guess.

No one will see that video outside of Farkers.

zarberg: Fantasy sports is kinda like D&D for people too uptight to let their inner nerd out.

I keep trying to convince my office mates who go ape whenever
their fantasy teams (mostly composed of Redskins players) lose.

Either they've never heard of D&D, or are too deep in denial to admit
it is true.

I am confused by your use of the terms "either", and "or".

Actually, my adventuring party has had some pretty good successes and have ruined some of the DM's encounters by thinking outside the box and leveraging non-combat abilities in combat ways.
