I'm going to assume based on this thread that there's sufficient interest in a hypothetical Cloned Fat Guy Football League. I'll start pricing genetecists.

There are too many real athletes in here.

This cries out for more billiards and DOTA players. Maybe a bowler or two.

Needs Ndamukong Suh and Blair Walsh for the bench.

Wow a Kyle Orton reference.  That's...well it's just weird.

List fails as it isn't exclusively Offensive Linemen

Doesn't matter.  They would get screwed by the officiating.

Good to see you again, my friend. I always look forward to your illuminating commentary during the World Cup.

I take it as being quite sad that we're even analyzing this article. Oh yeah, it's the slow sports time of the year, isn't it?

So assume all your guys need to be the fat one(slow as a tractor) from the 80's/90's nintendo hockey game except the one fast skinny dude to kamikaze himself.  Not sure if that would work but it makes me chuckle.

Pretty much this. Elite midfield and forwards cover 10-11km per 90 minute game. That is a massive amount of cardiovascular fitness that half of an NFL team can't get close to.

The World Cup starts today and no USA, so blog writers need to come up with something to tie into it.
