I won a challenge league against the Light side but I found football to be disenchanting to play in general. It was nice to watch NFL games knowing I didn't have to do any box score checking but to be honest, I don't care that much about the NFL; it's just some other sport to watch any Fall/Winter weekend. Might be sacrilegious for me to say it but I don't see football as anything special. Sorry.
The interesting thing is for the third year in a row, I'm well behind my preparation. I'm pretty sure I'll screw up my drafts and do it au naturale but I look at fantasy football as more of a fun side thing to do. I'd still be a dedicated player but despite being so competitive, winning and losing fantasy football leagues doesn't really matter to me. Fantasy baseball is more like the art of war, which I really do love, and is by far my favorite fantasy sport.
That makes sense for me because that's exactly the way I feel about baseball and fantasy baseball. I have found it fun to look at stats and compete in my first league this year, but I don't watch baseball and during the playoffs I might watch a few games, but its just a filler during the offseason.
