Fantasy Football Is a Mental Disorder

Filled under:

All players on a losing team score one point that's doubled if you lose by three goals or more. The most disappointing player on the pitch, chosen by a panel of experts scores an extra three points. (On the first weekend of the season this accolade went to Wayne Rooney.) An own goal gets you three points – with a bonus for comedy value as does giving away a penalty.

I think that Fantasy Football is a mental disorder that destroys people's brains, and causes them to worship stats, such as passing yards to nowhere, over what is really important, wins and situational occurrences. (Yes a 5 yard pass for a 1st down can be vastly more important than 6oyards passing gained that results in nothing).
