What he ^ said. I don't think it is gambling unless it is a money league. If you play a marbles league then I guess it is gambling too...LOL

It's definately not gambling, not even in a money league. Because you create a break down of winners. It'd be like saying real football players are gambling with their carrers and health trying to make the post season. I think FF is kind of a small business, which is a gamble in and of it's self but not gambling.

I put it in the same category as poker (if its a money league), but to less of a degree.
Poker is considered a skill game (thats how it was legalized in California) and I think FF is as well.
