Just wondering, whats the point of this thread? So people can brag about the degrees they have? How smart you are doesn't have anything to do with how good you are at FF.

I'm a fast learner.


More like a fast poster.
1800 posts in one month? Are you nuts?


...No. :-?


dude you post 50 times a day. thats not healthy. as far as education goes, Ill be graduating from high school in june. Having a degree has nothing to do with fantasy sports. ive met some truck drivers with more common sense than a so called "professional."


I agree 100% Portisfan24

Just wanted to point out that this is your 3rd post to this thread.

I was just wanting to do some calculations on the honor system. Considering everybody is being honest, I want to see how success in FF correlates with educational level. Statistically of course. If you read the original post....objectively!.....You would be able to discern that.

I posted it in this forum to maximize hits because I thought it would be a popular subject since everybody talks about their education levels often anyway. This is a way to round-up the bragging into one thread. But I realize that there is a never-ending problem with posting in the wrong forum and that I am just perpetuating the problem, for that I say sorry to the Mods.

I agree with everybody who says that education levels are not a very good measure of FF success, thus the statistical evaluation. Again, reread the original post.

I will try to calculate this evening.

By the way, It is really impressive to see all of the success that people in this forum have had and are having with both fantasy sports and in their personal and professional lives. Its a pleasure to be in this forum with all of you.....

despite the occasional low blows..lol!

I think your level of intellegence (sp?) has nothing to do with how good you are at FFB, because a person in my league has won it two years in a row, and he has beaten out 2 adults both graduated from College. I think it's just how committed you are.

Sorry Diablo, I didn't read the 1st post through thoroughly I guess, I thought you were just wondering, not doing a statistical analysis.

I'm in grade 12 and I've been playing FF for 2 years. Last year I made the playoffs in 2 of the 4 leagues I was in, and I won one of them.

BA in Finance. LSU-Shreveport

3rd year of fantasy football.

1st year I played I won. It was a yahoo 10 team league.

2nd year. 10 team yahoo league. Placed 2nd.

This year I decided to do two leagues. Im third in both leagues.
yahoo league im 1-1 and sporting news league im 2-0.

I think im done with yahoo unless i form my own league. Two people already quit and are not substituting players that are injured. I really have to say that I like the sporting news league. Good site and everybody is very active. I guess you get what you pay for.

BS in Chem E, in three years made 3 superbowls, winning 1. 2-0 this year. However,posting in this forum won't give you a statistically valid result. You will be sampling people who care about ff, regardless of education level. They will all do well becasue the follow the game and look for the most up to date info (as evidenced by posting on this site). Just my thoughts.
