Magill Report Fantasy Football is Back! Get Your Team
By Ken Magill
What time is it? Why, it’s football time! And what does that mean? It means it’s time for The Magill Report Fantasy Football League!
This year is version 3.0.
As in the previous two seasons, participation is free. The winner of The Magill Report FFL championship will get an engraved crystal trophy and a regulation-sized sweet Lebanon bologna football from Dietrich’s meats in Krumsville, PA.
And just as was the case last year, this year’s league will feature 14 teams managed by executives in or loosely associated with email marketing.
If this year is anything like the last two, The Magill Report FFL will be crazy competitive. The reason: Every company has at least one swirly-eyed, football-obsessed nut job on staff somewhere and that’s the person they tap to manage their team.
For what should be obvious reasons, I don’t field a team in The Magill Report FFL. But I’m kind of glad I don’t participate as a team owner.
After some of the brilliant free-agency moves I witnessed in the last two seasons, I know I can’t compete with these guys. They’d whip me into pansy-assed submission and I’d end the season curled up on the floor in the fetal position sobbing for my mommy.
In any case, last year’s team owners have dibs on teams for this season’s. They simply have to claim them.
Once last year’s team owners have had a chance to claim their spots, any slots left unclaimed will go on a first-come first-serve basis to new inquirers.
However, this year we’re beginning the league with a bit of a twist.
Unlike last year, I’m not sending an email cajoling the previous season’s team owners to join. I’m putting out the call for teams only in The Magill Report newsletter and Twitter feed.
So the only way last year’s team owners will know about this year’s league will be through reading The Magill Report.
Whoever wants in or back in should email me at Kenmagill_at_gmail.com. Once I figure out who’s in, I’ll send out an email notifying those who have a team.
