Fantasy Football and Criminal Defense?


At first when I read this post, I found the idea to be a little far-fetched, but after considering the notion I realized it has validity. I am a huge sports fan (growing up with 4 brothers you really did not have a choice, at least if you wanted to watch tv in my house!). I have always been passionate when rooting for my teams and when I began doing fantasy football a few years ago, that passion extended to the players on my fantasy teams. I have just as much devotion to the people on my fantasy teams as I do for the players who make up my favorite teams (Go Steelers and Wolverines...and no, despite some recent transgressions, being a Steelers fan, does NOT make me a better Virginia criminal defense attorney).

Fantasy football is a game of strategy. You may have the best players and the best team. You may be projected to win and you may think you have made the right decisions when setting your lineup, but at the end of the day you still may come up short. You rely on the people you drafted to play their hearts out and lead you to the big "W". At the end of the week you can second guess yourself about what you could have done differently, but you had no way of knowing whether the RB you benched would have an outstanding day or whether the QB you started would go out of the game early with an injury.
