Google to get into Fantasy Football?

Postby nebbie2004 » Sat Jun 18, 2005 6:12 pm

I was pondering this the other day...........

Yahoo has been having Fantasy Football for years now, Just this year Msn has introduced Fantasy football at http://msn.foxsports.com/fantasy and will Google follow?

Ive noticed over the years, when one does something the others seem the follow. That being Yahoo, MSN and Google. Examples can be seen with Internet Search, Email, etc.

Im not saying Google every will, but I would love to see it happen! ;-D

Interesting.

They better get crackin' soon, though, because Yahoo's already up-and-running.

Whoops, brain fart.

I was referring to MSN's fantasy football...which of course I should've noted.

I don't think so, google is strictly search, while MSN and yahoo have movie sites, sports sites, music sites, sites, etc. I don't think google would get into it, but if they did, they would easily have the best FF program around.

I doubt they'd have a good FF site. Google is always known for being mostly barebones, and I would guess their site for FF would be similar. It'd take some pretty nice features for me to leave Yahoo for another free site. Basically the only thing Yahoo can't do is divisions. If they had that, that'd be nice.

Well Google is already branching out into news, email, shopping, etc. They might as well do it, I'm sure a lot of people would sign up. I doubt they'd have the best around though.
