Well, U.S. businesses should do a better job at drafting their teams. Then, they might recoup some of that in winnings.

I don't care how much it costs my company, I just wish that the meatheads in the office would shut the fark up about their goddamn fantasy team. There's certain people that spend 95% of their week talking about fantasy and I want nothing more than to strangle them. Maybe if they attempted to play a real sport instead of this bullshiat they wouldn't be so goddamn fat.

MORE BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD! They look it me like I'm a freak when I talk about my Blood Bowl team and league.

The fallacy is the assumption that time spent on fantasy football would instead be spent working.

Yup....I even had some Marketing douchebag call me into his office and demand that I "fix it" for him ASAP.
I just laughed and directed him to HR.

well, if IT would fix the damn internet, I wouldn't have to submit so many tickets for when the internet freezes when it is my turn to draft, which then goes to the auto-queue, which I have organized by player position and not rank and really didn't want Randy Moss to be my round 1 pick.

speaking of fantasy football on fark, are there any fark leagues?

With the average fantasy football player spending about nine hours a week on managing the team...

Who the hell spends nine hours a week on fantasy football? I mean, I can see that only if you count sitting down and watching the games as being research to see your players in action. But aside from that, if you need more than an hour to figure out a good line-up with the players you have, you are either too dedicated to something frivolous or you seriously suck at fantasy football. Or both.

. . . . and that the joy employees get from spending time on FF doesn't increase their productivity the rest of the day.

I spent about an hour today tweaking my team. On the other hand I have to go into work tomorrow to upgrade a server, so I'm calling it a wash.

And we'll see this story again, in six months, when March Madness rolls around.

You sound like a big breasted secretary who used to get a lot of attention before the "sexual harrassment" motif dominated the workplace.

Well, something had to replace talk about your breasts and it just happened to be Larry Fitzgerald and RGIII,
