    Why in the hell I didn't sign up for more than 1 FF team this year is beyond me.

    I'm currently 1-7 in my only league..

    Fantasy year sucks... my first two picks are a bust.. LT and Westbrook...

    My buddy just hit an 8 team college football parlay..$$$$$$$$ And I didn't..

    I'm crying tonight, and praying tomorrow...

    So if i get that right:

    Its a game, you own the virtual equivalence to real football clubs. All players statistics and values are taken from the real football (like NFL) and transferred on the club they are on at Fantasy Football?

    So its like a NFL-Club manager game?

    Did i get that one rite?

    Yes... but you usaully try not to own multiple players from One club.. but diversify and own players from multiple clubs...

    If they score..... you score in Fantasy..

    They say 25 Million Americans play Fantasy Football.. it makes paying attention to ALL GAMES, opposed to just your favorite..

    (Go Houston Texans!!!!!)

    Yep...

    There's also different ways to score games.. (Many!)

    Some like to pick individual defensive players, while others just pick one clubs (Team) defense..

    Have you watched American Football?!?! Did you enjoy it?

    HMMMMMMM

    Brees, R. Brown (Before his week 10 injury) & The New Orleans Saints are all good players and teams...

    Brees is the 4th Highest Fantasy QB, Brown is top 10RB.. and Saints are undefeated...

    Larry Johnson is joke along with KC. I just recently dropped B. Westbrook for (hahahaha YES, ODD he was still on ESPN's fantasy list) Terry Glenn... I have plenty of backup RB's!!!

    Yes... But usaully to watch any Euro games in America.. one must either go to a local 'pub' not 'bar' or 'bar & grill' ..but a pub..

    Pay an outrageous price for upper tier digital programming and add Soccer channels..

    Or maybe catch it online or the Spanish channels..

    Soccer is the #1 sport played By American kids aged 4-12.. then.. it falls off


    I'm actually glad American media decided to dump Hockey for Soccer in its programming lineup... I can't stand Hockey.. or even how or why you push a sport that takes Ice to skate on to play.. I mean most Americans don't have access to a friggin frozen pond.. LOL

    I digress,
    Soccer here in America should have a nice boost from The World Cup...

    i know right? i should have a pretty decent team. i started 2-0, and have lost all but one game since. keep in mind brees 3rd and 4th game totals were something like 9 pts combined. so that didnt help. ronnie brown was my one solid back, so when he went down last week, i couldve cried. theres two guys in our league of ten that dont even update the teams. and they both have more wins than my team. im telling you man, everyone has their best week against the haphazard TDs and Beer.

    ive been trying to get our league to switch over to a keeper league. has anyone ever played in one of those before?

    i played two years of baseball as a kid (outfield, picking clovers) and around seven years of soccer. i loved it. my sons have been playing soccer since 4, and i plan on keeping them in it. my high school has one of the better soccer programs in the state, so i figure thats a way to a scholarship for them. overall tho, baseball is still huge (around here at least) but soccer is fast approaching

    Not EVEN CLOSE.....

    Soccer is....

    (My brother is 6'6" tall and played "club" soccer growing up.. Was on the private club team 'Texans'... They traveled to France when they we under 14... And he was on the Olympic development team... So for American standards that's pretty good...)


    Like I said its growing when it comes to semi-pro, indoor as well as our MLS (Major League Soccer)

    We are nowhere near Brazil, England, Germany when it comes to National ferver to play and watch the game...
