Championship rings instead of trophies...

Postby Sixxgunn » Tue Jul 25, 2006 4:12 pm

I found this cool idea the other day and decided to share/see if anyone else has done this. I think it would totally be more interesting than just handing out the cash and a handshake.

lol only way I could see this being practical is if it's a really well-known competitive leauge, i.e. something that all the fantasy columists would do and stuff like that. I'd love it if I was in something like that. otherwise throw my name on the winners list and give me some cash

There's geek and there's uber-geek. Rings are where I draw the line. :-B

I also wouldn't wear a ring. I think a nice trophy is pretty cool though.

The trophy can't get caught in the sink drain...

Seriously though.. How are you going to explain to your wife that on one finger you have a representation of your lifetime commitment to her and on the other you have a representation of that golden year when you won the Fantasy Championship.

I never played in leagues where any kind of trophy was handed out. I would personally rather see the cash payout sweetened a little bit.

The rings is a new idea but it's kinda weird if you ask me. Just up the cash by $129 more, that would easily be more appreciated.

Word...I bought a class ring in high school and it was probably the biggest waste of $100+ dollars ever. :-P

Find yourself a few quarters and a toy dispensing machine, that plastic ring can be modified to say "____ FFL Champion"

Then keep the rest of the cash.
