Outsports.com and Bowl-Bound Ventures have teamed up to launch the first fantasy football Web site designed specifically for gay NFL fans and their fantasy football leagues.
It's a first of its kind… An Internet fantasy football league for the gay NFL fan. The Gay Fantasy Football League site features not only weekly competition, but also live chat, personals, an advice column, and of course some good spirited trash talking.
Participants can choose from three leagues. The Blitz league is a free fantasy football for those who like a simple format. It is perfect for beginners or those who don’t want to spend lots of preparation time. The All-Pro leagues are the traditional 12-team leagues where participants draft before the season and manage their team. Another option offered is “Your GFFL.” “Your GFFL” is a customizable league for those groups that have 10-12 participants that want to set up their own league. You tell us what you want and we set it up. GFFL offers some of the best functionality anywhere on the Web and a bit more.
“We are extremely excited to join Outsports.com in promoting a fantasy football league where gay participants will feel connected through league competition and daily content,” said Mick Parsons, director of marketing for Gayfantasyfootball.com.
Outsports.com President Cyd Zeigler, who has played fantasy football for many years, says the Web site will feature top-notch innovations for the most discriminating fantasy football fan. “At Outsports.com, we’ve dedicated ourselves to building the strongest, highest-quality online community for gay sports fans and athletes. This new joint venture is an extension of that community, with the same dedication to excellence.”
It is believed that fantasy football evolved in the 1960s, when two guys from Oakland, Calif., created the game in a New York hotel. Since the 1960s and the emergence of the Internet, fantasy football has spread like wildfire. It is estimated that over 15 million sports fans now participate in this addictive hobby. From San Francisco to Savannah, NFL fans are not only cheering on their favorite teams, but are pulling for their fantasy players. Fantasy football has brought together co-workers, families, former college roommates, and now for the first time, gay NFL fans.
