Fantasy Football
« on: August 09, 2017, 05:57:49 PM »
Greetings good people,

I really cannot decide what I am more committed to in this life, the NFL or MMM.  In the past few years I have been slowly moving my socializing towards being with mustachian minded people.  Apparently, it is hard to find enough people who are even interested in FIRE, let alone to fill out a fantasy football league, in my area.  So, drop me a line and I will invite you to the most frugal of FF leagues.

So I guess the lack of response says a lot about either me or my fellow mustachians.  Let's put this at the top and see if I can get at least one reply.

I still play one team each year, but there's no money involved which is kind of lame. Hit me up with what you had in mind?

Both of my normal leagues are in jeopardy of not making this year.  If one of them doesn't I'd definitely be interested in joining.  Send me the details. 

I love ff as a inexpensive mustachian hobby, but I'm not sure I have the time for more than 2 leagues. If only I was FIRE...

Boom.  I created a league over ESPN named Positions of Strength.  I am open to discussing what kind of scoring and this can all be figured out once we have enough people to fill out the league.  The winner of this glorious league should win something and again I am open to discussion.  A MMM shirt or perhaps the ever popular 15% off at home depot coupons I can get or even better just lavish amounts of praise directed at the winner on the forums.  I am looking to do the draft as close to the regular season as possible.  If you are interested you can drop me a message with your email and I can send an invite.

I started playing Rotisserie baseball in 1985 -- I was 15 -- and fantasy football two years later. In college I played ACC basketball fantasy; this was pre-Internet and scoring was a bear. I spent my 20s as a baseball writer for a major newspaper.

So I understand the appeal, even though I hadn't played fantasy sports from 1998 until three years ago, when my sons (then 11 and 9) and I started playing Fan Duel college basketball. We didn't bet much, broke even over a few months, and probably would still be playing if the NCAA hadn't pressured the DFS sites to pull it down. (Such hypocrisy from the NCAA. My sons became huge college hoops fans because of DFS. We were far more likely to be watching  Boston College-GA Tech than we would have otherwise).

I remember in the late 1990s during the first Internet stock boom talking to a colleague who was 24/7 obsessed with fantasy sports -- and this was very early Internet. I told him if he spent half as much time on investing as he did with fantasy sports, he'd be filthy rich.

Bottom line: If you're at a stage in life where you can devote time to it and it's your passion, go for it. But I know at last two wonderful women who have divorced guys who got too obsessed with it.

BTW, the book Dueling with Kings by Daniel Barbisi is outstanding.

Now we are cooking with gas.  If anyone else wants to get in on the frugal fantasy football let me know and I can send you an invite.

There are still some spots left in the league.  Hurry before they are all gone.

Right now we have 8 teams.  10 would be great and 12 would be awesome.  Come and join us.

We are up to 9 teams.  One more and I can quit being annoying on this thread.
