    by  • August 23, 2013 • 0 Comments

    Tomorrow, August 24, Buffalo Wild Wings and Yahoo! Fantasy Football are declaring a national holiday, National Draft Day. A worthy cause, if you asked me.

    As part of the festivities, Yahoo! Fantasy Football managers will be able to go to any Buffalo Wild Wings nearby for draft advice, free stuff, and to, of course, draft their teams.

    Brad “Big Noise” Evans and Andy Behrens will be in Dallas and Minneapolis to offer their expert advice. Everyone else can join in online with Brandon Funston and Kay Adams as they host the day from the Yahoo! Sports studio, which will be streaming at every BWW location and to online users from 12 to 2 p.m. CST.

    I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a nice little Saturday. I’m canceling my Pottery Barn plans.

    The League gets Xed to FXX

    The League is moving to FX’s new channel for the 18-34 demographic with a “cutting-edge DIY look,” FXX. I think it’s still acceptable for ages 34 and over to watch, so make sure to change your DVRs before the season premiere on Sept. 4.

    The online savvy should also note that FX has changed all of The League’s social media channels to correspond with the FXX change. For example, you’ll now find the Twitter feed at @TheLeagueFXX.

    In the meantime, enjoy these promos created to let everyone know about the channel change, starring NFL players on the move this offseason, Josh Cribbs, Greg Jennings, and Dwight Freeney, as well as a couple staying put, Jay Cutler and J.J. Watt.

    Nothing to mock here

    by  • April 25, 2013 • 0 Comments

    Most mock drafts are nonsense. You can stop reading them. We don’t know any better than the Jaguars do who’s going to take who in the draft. This year, everyone seems to be accepting that, and we didn’t put together a mock draft here at Fools. But they are fun to do, aren’t they?

    For your entertainment, I offer up Ufford’s take on mock drafts, which I believe gets it right — they’re mostly fan fiction for the people watching at home…hoping desperately that their home team doesn’t screw it up. It’s nice to think for a while that they might do the right thing with that first round pick, isn’t it?
