Fantasy Football Schadenfreude


No where is the emotion more clear than Fantasy Football!

There’s not anything more pleasing than watching a game title which traditionally you’d never value, together with players maybe not really in your team, only from the expectation that the hapless guard your friend comes in his lineup could enable in a dozen or even score a personal objective.

Ofcourse the flip side with the holds true fromĀ baanpolball Fantasy Football – uncontrolled jealousy in your pal’s uncanny capacity to modify his Captain compared to this no-hope player who unexpectedly strikes a hatrick or his choice to play with five star defenders every one whom maintain fresh sheets.

It isn’t the losing I despise, it is another chap winning which basically gets my goat!

Ofcourse as the summer season progresses along with your team gradually slides down the club, the powerful feelings which plagued every waking minute offer way to apathy, depression and also a gloomy feeling of inevitability. The team starts to have a back chair, Friday nights and Saturday mornings are not spent poring on the most recent numbers, however as an alternative seeing friends and perhaps even carrying your lady breakfast in bed. Simply speaking, life simply will not seem to be worth living.

Finally the only real thing which prevents you away from going at the end of a chain would be that the expectation that maybe your Nemesis that has won the previous five titles could slide up, create a mistake, even forget their Captain has already been suspended.

Until next season ofcourse! It will be different. I will be Fantasy Football Champion!
