See, some would go with a Doors reference here and tell you this is the end, my Razzball friends, the end but I’m gonna do you one better. I’m gonna tell you it’s the end of the road and though you can’t let go, these football writers have gone from Boyz II Men over these past couple of months. Wow, that was a lot of musical references to start this post off with. Anyways, to catch the rest of you up, we have been doing a little thing all summer called ‘The Next Great Fantasy Football Writer’ in which we team up with FanDuel Insider to find a man of great fantasy football knowledge. Ok, it didn’t have to be a man but since we didn’t get any female submissions we can say that without sounding sexist. Overall, it was a fun ride but like most rides, you have to pay someone and they eventually tell you to get off…hrm, I wasn’t going for innuendo but I found myself there anyway. With that, let’s dive in…you fell for it! I simply want to remind you that we’re doing our 2012 Razzball Football Commmenter Leagues this year. That previous link will tell you what you need to do to either create a league or what leagues are currently available while this link here will tell you why it would be a cool thing to do. And with that, let’s corral TNGFFW up for 2012 by talking about round 5 results and our overall grand champion.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Three Off-Season Moves That Will Move Your Fantasy Team or How Jimmy Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Fantasy Football

Welcome all to this little shin-dig run in conjunction with FanDuel Insider we like to call TNGFFW around here. If you’re not familiar with what we’re trying to do and why you should be doing it, I strongly encourage you to take a look back at the start of it all when we announced Round One of The Next Great Fantasy Football Writer.Please, blog, may I have some more?
ANNOUNCER: And now, here’s your Channel 2 KRAP evening news at 11, with Anthony Bologna and Judith Duty.
TONY: Good evening folks, and welcome to the evening news at 11. I’m Anthony Bologna, and this is Judith Duty.
JUDY: Hello.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well here we are, folks, three rounds down and two more to go. If you’re just joining us on this fun ride, I’ll give you a brief fill-in before we get onto the goods. Firstly, this is a contest we are doing in conjunction with our friends at FanDuel Insider who are helping us look for The Next Great Fantasy Football Writer. If you want a full detail as to why it would be cool to submit for this process, you need look no further than at the first post of the contest here that describes the whole ordeal. Note this isn’t an NCAA tournament: no one gets eliminated. Well actually you DO get eliminated by not submitting but that ain’t us doin ya wrong, it’s you doing it to yourself. All this to say, you can miss rounds for submission but not submitting for five rounds? Well, what can we do about that if you’re TNGFFW? Read your fantasy football minds? Sorry, the only superpower I have is x-ray vision. At least that’s what my wife tells me when I stare too long at an attractive girl in public. But I digress, I’m simply here to say all is not lost. We still have two rounds left for you to show us what you have. So with that, let’s take a look at the results for this week…psyche! I wanted to remind all you fantasy football people that Razzball Commenter League Sign-Ups are open and free to join. I post-jacked Kevin and Andrew this week to get the word out, I figured it was only fair to do it to myself. We currently have two open leagues so hop right in if you’re game to play this game with us. Alright, now on with the show!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hi all, this is Sky speaking to you in italics. I’m simply here to remind everyone we’re doing Razzball Commenter Leagues this year again. If you’d like to join one of our leagues or to create your own, go check out our 2012 RCL sign-up. Alright, now back to your regularly scheduled Kevin.
Rookie production in 2011 was a mixed bag.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Rookies in fantasy football are a tricky proposition. Top picks play for terrible teams, no-names land in great situations, and each of them is being lectured by Pacman Jones at the Rookie Symposium, so all bets are off. If you’re in a keeper or dynasty league, then talent is usually more important than situation, but in redraft leagues you need the guy who will be in a position to produce right away, which is rare.Please, blog, may I have some more?
So here we are, four weeks and two rounds into our co-contest with FanDuel Insider. You who have stuck with the process are now more hardened, more calloused of fingers from your furious typing and quite possibly more insane from all the reading and re-reading you’ve had to do to make sure your affections for Cam Newton didn’t sound as creepy as your wife said it was. You are becoming a seasoned fantasy football writer, a person who is lauded by his peers and mocked by people who just don’t understand your need to make sexual innuendos about how much you want to draft Trent Richardson this year. Of course, for those who haven’t turned one in over the first two rounds or have missed a round, you still have hope. This is a five round deal here, folks, and we realize that the disgusting thing people call ‘the real world’ rears its ugly head and gets in the way of our fantasy football life from time to time. What I’m telling you here is, if you have been submitting but haven’t yet won a round, don’t give up hope and if you haven’t submitted at all or have missed a round, you’ve still got a chance. So what are you waiting for? Do it already! Sorry, got caught up in the moment. Overall, don’t give up hope just because you haven’t seen your name in bold yet. For those who are new to the contest, I’m going to direct you back to the start of it all so you can get just what the heck we’re doing here and why you should want to do it. With that said, every round has to have some winners so lets get to how round two shaped up.Please, blog, may I have some more?
This is it, folks. The moment you’ve all been waiting for. You put in tireless minutes at your computer (or typewriters for you older gentlemen), tap-tap-tapping away at the keys and hoping some fantasy-writing gold spilled onto your screen.
But before we get to the results, let’s talk shop.Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s here, it’s here, it’s really, really here! I know you’ve been waiting with bated breath since my teaser last Friday and lucky you, the wait is over. This is your opportunity to prove to the world that not only do you know a junk in the trunk-load about fantasy football but you have the wiles of a snake charmer in your use of the English language. Yes your write up has to be in English; sorry Quebec readers. So as not to make the winner from last year feel left out, we are giving out the same goodies this year in conjunction with FanDuel Insider. For those unfamiliar or who can’t remember, the winner gets 300 dollars cash, which is just as good as money. That’s a good chunk o’ bills there. You could buy like ten bottles of bronzing tan spray with that and impress your friends with your Jersey Shore impersonations. Just imagine it! To go along with all that upfront moola, FanDuel will also deposit $20 into your FanDuel account for each week of the regular football season. You do the math on that – and for the love of all that is holy, don’t divide by zero when you do – and you’re getting well over your initial $300 prize. But wait, there’s more! Not more money, mind you, but you do get to post your fantasy football thoughts on both Razzball and FanDuel. That’s twice the links you get to rub in your friends faces via the internet. Besides getting a WaveRunner, what more could you want?Please, blog, may I have some more?
