Sunday, Monday, Thursday NFL and Saturday College football just took on a whole other dimension with the advent of Fantasy Football.
“Ready Set Omaha Omaha” a phrase made popular by super star Quarter Back Peyton Manning- what does it mean exactly well on the surface it appears to signal a play change. For the purpose of Women’s Pigskins First Annual Fantasy Football League it’s going to mean team get ready because we are going for the ring, ok lets shoot for the playoffs. Fantasy football is our opportunity to get in the game. Will we be gambling, No. For Women’s Pigskin our participants serve as the general managers of virtual professional gridiron football teams. The competitors choose their team rosters by participating in a draft in which players in the National Football League are available. Points are based on the actual performances of the players in real-world competition. Drafts game typically involve not only the National Football League, but the Canadian Football League and or college football players.
It’s never too late to play and you don’t have to play for money. What it takes to participate is thick skin because the people you are playing with take their draft and teams very seriously down to the funky names most Fantasy Football players call their clubs.
I will be posting a series of post and guest post leading up to our mock draft so that we will have a sense of familiarity with the concept, process, and rules. Our first article, written by WP Guest Writer Drew Farmer, “Pros vs. Cons: Comparing the top 5 NFL Fantasy Websites” is coming soon so stay tuned in.
