AOL Acquires Fantasy Football Site Fleaflicker
Authored by Mark Hefflinger on April 25, 2008 - 7:15am.

Dulles, Va. - AOL has paid an undisclosed sum to acquire New Jersey-based fantasy sports site Fleaflicker, which powers The Washington Post's fantasy football leagues, TechCrunch reported.

Fleaflicker was developed by Ori Schwartz, a former software engineer at IBM, who launched the football-only site in August 2005 following 10 months of development.

He continues to maintain the free site, which has attracted scores of players looking for an alternative to some of the larger, more popular sites.

According to MediaPost, AOL plans to add Fleaflicker, under the banner of AOL Sports, to its other current fantasy sports offerings in July.

Maybe AOL will take a few tips from them. That combined with greater support group should make for a decent fantasy product if they don't screw it up.
