Fantasy Football is serious business…

Fantasy Football is serious business…

If you have been following me for any amount of time you have figured out that I am married to a very funny man.

Very funny.

Often times at my expense as you have witnessed here and here and here.

But I came across this little gem of his the other day and had to share it with you.

A little back ground here…we are football people in our house. Like big time. We spend all year prepping ourselves for the fantasy season and even I am in 2 leagues.

So I guess there was a little snaffu with one of his SIX leagues in that their commish put a freeze on their wavers until all league fees were paid…chaos and comedy ensued.

This was my husband’s public post on the leagues blog in response to the commish’s actions…


Commish: My Evil Dolls Make The Rules

Commish and his dolls plotting.

“Draft time changes, league fee due dates, don’t ask me,  I don’t make them, my dolls do.” Said Commish when asked about suspending waivers for teams who have not paid league fees after week one.

Reporter: What about the confusion with the draft? Could it be that there was a miscommunication between the league and the owners about the draft time when there were so many of them confused about the draft date and time?

Commish: My dolls sent out an email, ask them.

Reporter: What about the league fees. Could it be that once again there was a miscommunication, and suspending waivers for this week is a bit harsh?

Commish: Dolls!

Owners have insured Commish that the check is in the mail, but commish won’t budge.

“The dolls told everyone in the bylaws that no one reads and that no one can find, and in the fast scrolling and ever changing league draft instant chat which happened when everyone was drunk at night on a weekend, when the fees were due.” –  commish explained when asked if he thought his orders might have been slightly unclear.

At this moment, waivers still have not run for those who have not paid. Also Commish has not commented on the obvious fix for these minor complications, a brief post on the league webpage that everyone sees when setting their lineups.

The owners say they understand that running a “fantasy” football league (“it’s not fantasy, it’s real” – Owners FatKatz and Papp Razzi agree) is much like herding cats, and identify with the commish on the actions taken, and his frustration in his volunteer role. “I know he could be really pissed because he’s a Michigan Wolverine fan, and because they suck balls, but I just really want a new wide receiver bad” stated one anonymous source.”Why else would he hire dolls?”

At this moment it remains a rush to the mailbox, or whatever source of payment the dolls may come up with next. But, the owners hope to badger Commish, and his dolls enough to make him change his mind.

God bless Commish, and God bless ‘MERICA!

God bless ‘Merica indeed!




  1. In the first three weeks of the season my team, Tebow is a Douche, has beaten my former radio co-host, my girlfriend and this week tied my teenage daughter. If I started Carson Palmer at QB I could have made a clean sweep. Thanks Cam Netwon for sucking so hard.

    Oh yeah, good post.
