    Fantasy Football Culture is special. It’s an obsession, a hobby, and an attitude. We cultivate it as we talk about all things fantasy football or fantasy sports — whether it’s on TV, online, or any part of the fantasy football league experience.

    The League S02E01: What Happens in “Vegas Draft”

    by  • September 23, 2010 • Culture • 3 Comments

    Yes. This season, in honor of fantasy football’s only sitcom…and really, fantasy football’s only TV show outside of ESPN, I’ve decided to recap each episode of “The League,” which comes on Thursday nights at 10:30 p.m. EST on FX, in case you missed the announcement. This recap for Episode 1 ran a bit behind...

    Why Jahvid Best is the Best

    by  • September 22, 2010 • Culture • 0 Comments

    With a name like Best, you should have known he was going to be good, but  this video might also have helped clue you in on his talent.

    You can only blame yourself for not getting a piece of this guy in your own fantasy football draft. I’ve heard people compare him to Chris Johnson and a young Brian Westbrook, both good signs for his future in the league.

    Personally, I hope he’s more like Johnson because a breakout season much like the one Chris Johnson put together last year would just do wonders for my RB2 spot.

    If you’re on the outside of Best looking in, it’s going to be difficult to land him unless you really, really want to buy him at his current cost: arm, leg, firstborn, and probably your first round draft pick.

    It will be “Best” to give it some time and see if his current owner gets antsy or needs to make a deal to compensate for another weakness in their team. If they come calling, don’t hesitate to take Best.

    Now about that Calvin Johnson catch

    Was a touchdown (and, therefore, six fantasy points, which is really what we care about here) stolen from Megatron this week by the refs? I know there has been plenty of discussion this week about how goofy the rules are surrounding completing a catch in the end zone, and I agree that those rules...

    FX’s The League returns TONIGHT

    by  • September 16, 2010 • Culture • 3 Comments

    Just a reminder for fans of “The League” out there. Tonight, “The League” returns to TV on FX at 10:30 p.m. EST (9:30 p.m. CST) with the premiere of Season 2. Tonight’s premiere combines two things we love: fantasy football and Vegas. That pretty much guarantees it will be greatness. And at last, this...

    This goes out to you, DeAngelo Hall

    by  • September 12, 2010 • Culture • 0 Comments

    In honor of the Cowboys at Redskins face-off tonight, I give you this lovely, artistic interpretation of what it’s like to be the NFL’s most self-conscious cornerback, DeAngelo “Get Shorty” Hall. [Since the original featured video "Body Image is Not Just Dress Size," a spoken word performance, has been removed from YouTube, this will...

    Gary Busey should be in every commercial. Ever.

    by  • August 20, 2010 • Culture • 0 Comments

    No, seriously. Gary Busey should just pitch every product that wants to advertise on TV, especially when it comes to fantasy football. Just look at this series of ads he did for vitaminwater. I saw the first of these when it ran on ESPN last night during the SportsCenter Fantasy Draft Special.   I...

    Brett Favre made me do it

    by  • July 23, 2010 • Culture, Site News • 3 Comments

    I told myself I wasn’t going to do this. After the Saints won the Super Bowl, I wanted to take a little more time off than usual from blogging this offseason. So I decided to wait until Brett Favre had officially let his inner child back out of the bag and committed to one...

    Win a 52″ LCD and a spot on Rules of the League Season 2

    I know I’ve been wrapping the season with several contests, which probably isn’t exactly the kind of heavy-hitting football analysis you crave, but…well, it is Super Bowl week. I’m also in the middle of finalizing the redesign to make Fools more awesome for 2010. (If you’re sober enough, you may notice most of the...
