A couple of people have asked about the Pick-Em BATTLE involving our Former Pros that we’ve been hosting on ProPerspective .ca…

It’s been a hot minute since our last update but as you can see the leader board is close at the top.  Former Rider Marcus Adams has been out in front of this competition for the entire season but lately after a couple of 4-0 weeks, Mike McCullough has pulled up and is chomping at Adams’ heels.  

 

Being former Riders and understanding the atmosphere around Saskatchewan during the Labour Day weekend, it’s no surprise that it’s a clean sweep for the Riders in the Pick-Em column this week.

I’m kind of wary that I’m the only one picking Toronto here, but I remain optimistic that the Argos can get that done.  

 

We’ll keep you guys abreast of the situation from now on because the games will really get interesting in the back half of the year!

 

Anyway, I’m off to create my schedule for the weekend…The only reason I say this is because I’m sure all of you NFL Fantasy Nuts like me have 3 or 4 drafts that you’re trying to work into your schedule.  I have two on Sunday that are set in stone, and I’m currently debating on which one to auto-draft.  I also have drafts scheduled on Monday and Tuesday respectively.  

 

Fantasy Football is hilarious to me, but I love it all the same.  I literally skip any work I’m supposed to be doing on Tuesday mornings to watch the NFL channel and get all my injury updates and transactions.  After watching NFL Now, I’ll go make all my waiver wire moves that I feel are necessary to get a W in the upcoming week.  This all takes a while because the Fantasy MACHINE that the NFL has become overloads people with information that has them breaking down game stats and projections like one is actually a member of an NFL Scouting department. 

 

NFL Fantasy makes everything fun about the league.  I can stomach watching the Browns and the Dolphins square off, if myself or my weekly opponent are invested in a couple of players that are on field and producing.  Even Monday Night Football is better now.  Fantasy Owners everywhere can relate to me when I say that there’s nothing like heading into Monday Night with your fantasy teams WIN or LOSS hinging on the shoulders of one or two guys involved in that match-up…

 

The nice thing about the deal is that the NFL isn’t just catering to the football Junkie wearing his mustard stained Chiefs jersey.  Fantasy Football is making gamers out of everyone.  My friend just had her first child, and she’s sending out texts for Fantasy Advice in between naps.

My buddy doesn’t even like the NFL (He’s a CFL advocate) and he still gets into his local league because he doesn’t have to watch on Sundays, he can just play the stats.

It turns guys like me who’ve been devoted to one team since I started watching the game (Go COWBOYS) to channel flipping demons that take in every game that they can.

 

 

The NFL isn’t stupid either.  They do a tremendous job marketing Fantasy Football and everything that they have within their brand to provide accessibility, and to turn profits.

 

Yes folks, the NFL Season is quickly approaching.  Eliminator Pools, Pick-Em Pools, and all sorts of fun gambling/friendly wager activities are now part of the deal.  The only problem is finding the actual time to participate in everything that one wants too.
