    I never have. Been invited to play FF on many occasions, but I've been resistant so far.

    I've seen fans of other teams -- wearing other teams' gear -- coming over by me in a Sports Bar to watch a game Dallas was playing in, and their team wasn't, and watched them rooting for the Cowboys to score a TD ... but only by a certain player. I asked, what the h***? They told me that a certain Cowboys player was on their fantasy team. Yeah, they explained, they hated the Cowboys but had to root certain Cowboys players on because they were on their fantasy team.

    Where was the exclusive team fan support? The pride? Seemed strange to me then, seems a strange way to go about things now. Maybe it's just me that doesn't get it and it's a brave new NFL fan world I don't quite connect with. IDK?

    At one time I would play multiple teams in various leagues but quit a few years ago.

    Seemed like a bit of a hassle trying to keep up with everything and it really sucked if you forgot about a mid week game and got your roster locked.

    Also sucked if you had a high profile player on your team go down due to injury and not having much option to replace them due to a large number of teams in your league.

    Yeah I could never understand that...cause if you want to win at Fantasy Football that is going to happen at some point.

    exactly right if its not about the cowboys...than it hold little interest and never would I put myself in a position to be happy about M.Vick scoring a TD for the eagles<-----can anyone truly justify that.

    No offense to anyone, but I always thought it was too dorky to play. I never got into it at ALL. Also, I'd never do well because there wouldn't be a SINGLE gina, deadskin, egirl, fudge-packer, 'aint, or STEALer on my team.

    Yep it can make it tougher but it can be done...won a couple of years even without ever having any skins, iggles or gnats players and also no stealers either.

    I'm planning to scale back, as I had far too many teams last year.

    Each year? No. I stopped playing two years ago. But I won the championship the last year I played. Like Alexander the Great, I wept when there were no more worlds to conquer.:p:

    I have helped my nephews and a couple of friends with their FFLs but I have never wanted to get involved myself. I don't like rooting for individuals and definitely don't like the idea of rooting for players on teams I hate, and there a lot of teams on that list.

    I think part of the problem with today's fans can be traced back to fantasy leagues. It removes the whole "TEAM" concept and devolves to individual players. But that's just my opinion. If you enjoy playing that's great, knock yourself out, but count me out.

    It's simple. The players I draft always turn out to be bad, so I make it a point to get players from teams I don't like.

    Conversely, I avoid taking Cowboys most of the time.

    I waited until the year after Gore invented the internet to quit FFL.
