Burnside Fantasy Football League

We're looking to fill 6 slots in our annual Burnside fantasy football league. If you're interested, let us know in the comments.

I won the championship last year. I thought you should know this.

  1. Sign me up. But I am well aware that there is no point in playing because as we all know the editor always wins. It's like playing ping-pong with your Chinese boss...you're just humoring the guy.

  3. Sooo . . . did the defender in yellow not pray hard enough?

  4. Or to put it another way, why is Jesus always on offense?

  5. Not gonna lie, I've never played but sign me up. (I'm gonna need somebody to break down the basics for me, if possible.)

  6. Proof that anyone (ANYONE) can win the league: last year, Jordan drafted Reggie Bush in the third round and still managed to take the championship (http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/archive/nfl/2008/69260/draftresults)

  7. @John: Also of some interest, Jesus doesn't feel the need to wear a helmet.

  8. He doesn't even wear cleats. He just enters the game with his first century sandals and still seems to outrun the rest of the group!

  10. Jordan also shared that there were no waiver wires and that players could be picked up in "real time." He shared this about Week 3.

    I thought I should let you know this.

  11. I didn't realize we were sharing "Jordan Green is a cheat" stories, but I have one.

    Last year, Jordan changed the rules regarding rosters mid-draft. Suspiciously, the rule seemed to accommodate the players he had drafted.

    Still, it's a fun league to play in, if you're not hung up on fairness.

  12. I forgot that true story.

    I have no complaints. It's a writer's league. As such, everything it fluid until it goes the to printers.

    By "going to the printers", I mean that moment where Jordan sets the 7' FFL trophy that he had custom made on the coffee table, declares himself the champion, and listens to the K-Tel Rock Jock album on repeat.

  13. I'd love to get in on this. Let me know if there is still a spot.
