more of fantasy football on tv

this poindexter-looking jackass on the fantasy 10 min bit during espn-news (with Brendan funston) leads out with:

"HEY! WOW! Jamal Lewis! Is this guy not incredible? I mean, behind Priest Holmes, he's definitely the #2RB to have for your team!"

Gimme a break.

How did this guy get a job?

I wanted Lewis second round, but he was not their. I had to settle for S. Davis not doing to bad (no TD's). I still have high expectations from him and my first round pick LT. I am so upset I am 0-2 for the season.

on Spike TV they also have a show called "Fantasy Footbal" and "Football 101"...both pretty lame shows, but i'm just impressed that Fantasy Football programs are off of the public access stations....lol

I couldnt agree more AwwChrist. They are reactionary, one guy predicted Peerless price to "have a bad day" and then said "but you HAVE to start him".

That said, I watch anything related to football :-)

I am not sure if it was around last year (I don't remember it) but now during ESPN Countdown and Primetime there is a Fantasy bottom line. I don't find it surprising that television in general is trying to jump on the phenomon that is FB!

I've noticed the little Fantasy Football tickers at the bottom of the screen during NFL games lately. CBS has their own FF stuff gonig on, so it's prolly due to that, but still, it's cool.

And the SportsCenter guys refer to FF often.

I like that people are starting to talk about FF on tv and all but I have yet to see any one of them give a tip that was useful. They are all generic or outdated. Like I am sure they will all be boasting for J. Lewis for a couple of weeks because he had a great week.. but if O. Gary were to (by some freak of nature) tear off 200 yards and 2 TDs next week then they would be saying to start him over EVERYONE. They all simply seem to go with who had the hot hand last week for their "this weeks picks" and that is a good way to get beat in FF because few players ever have back to back killer weeks.
