Don’t look now but the annual sickness is about to creep its way back into our daily, stagnant lives. The time consuming, almighty habit that borders on obsessive, compulsive, hides just right around the corner. The occurrence that I speak of is, of course, our annual fantasy football draft and consequential lineup decisions.
Our Sunday mornings will go from peaceful and quiet, to a process of scrambling for information and checking media outlets for the very latest in player news. We will weave our way through fabricated injury reports, rehash game match ups 1000 times in our heads and even listen to countless so called experts who may just be flipping a coin to give us their educated, genius lineup selections. We will drop and drag, change our minds, and even ponder last minute desperation pick ups, right until the moment that our screen locks up to signal kickoff.
Fantasy football, in my life, has come to be known as a sort of warped family affair. Each August we swarm together at my in law’s house to firmly prove that my football knowledge reigns supreme. The anticipation is bubbling as I gather around the table with some of the finest folks I know including my sister in laws (OOPS! I think I meant my brother in laws.) My mind races as I remind myself that there is rarely a pleasure in life so sweet as to whip the pants off of your father in law, while verbally assaulting him in the mix.
With this being said, I don’t want to give anyone the impression that we are barbaric in nature. And since there is no web cam available to view the painful carnage of my brother in laws after a Saturday night on the town, we will pretend that business is always conducted in an orderly fashion. However, it never fails to arise at any of our annual gatherings, that a major group of fantasy football violations are committed by my competitors. So without delay, I proudly present to you this years etiquette lesson known as the ten commandments of fantasy football drafting.
