He's won my vote. I'll take LT2 over ADP any day.

He didn't say 'backup' really...he said he'd play a 'different role'. ;-7

If he wants my vote, all he has do is say he won't stop and drop to the ground at the opponent's one when it's the fantasy playoffs. :~(

This isn't the first time LDT has commented on fantasy football either. I remember some comments in jest from him a year or 2 ago about how he should be compensated for players winning leagues with him leading the way.

Having a working product might help them a smidgen more with that whole competition thing.

In all fairness to them, Foxsports might be decent or even good nowadays, but after the debacles from the year they debuted (2 years ago I think), aint no way I'm trying them out again anytime soon. Fortunately, we were able to transition all of our leagues back to yahoo and cbs and whatnot (though we did miss out on week one for one league as a result), but their product was awful that first season.

Football players seem to be more into fantasy then the other sports. The NFL definitely does, since they feature it much more on their programs and sites then MLB or NBA, which still have paid employees who mock it. I was talking to a Ravens receiver last year and he was telling me half the team plays some sort of league, and his buddies from home talk crap to him if they played against him (him being on the other team) the week before.

I guess he's more interested in winning championships in fantasy football rather then the Super Bowl. :-b ;-7
