    People always make fun of weather news "cuz they are wrong a lot". Wall Street analysts get criticized at times for their predictive abilities. Those people are like Einsteins compared to fantasy football pundits.



    It's so weird, they have no football background, no insider information whatsoever......no real credentials to back up what they say.......yet they have somehow found their way into a career telling people that "Tom Brady might play good this week".

    They always glom on to these obscure 4th stringers who they saw once in a college game "oh you gotta watch out for the 4th tight end on New England, they're calling him mini-Gronk, wow". Then 2 weeks later the guy falls off the face of the earth and the expert never says anything else about it.


    We all argue about politics all day but I guess we're wrong, America must be doing pretty fucking awesome if grown ass adults are getting paid 6 figures to say "Antonio Brown is good at football". I want that job. Get me in there.

    at least bitcoin has some kind of skill even if it's a dumb skill.


    I can't roll out of bed and do that without some learning. Any human can look at some football stats and rank the players in some logical order each week.

    yeah, more like running it at this point.


    Goodell is such a bungling, cartoonish fool yet they always credit him with growing the game. Fantasy football grew the NFL, not Roger Goodell.

    The game grew itself. He'll run it into the ground.
