Pipe Down Fantasy Owners

Washington Post columnist Tracee Hamilton has a great piece about fantasy football owners. The gist: just shut up about your team.

So I ask you, fantasy players, as the season begins, to think before you speak. You are slowly taking over the planet; there can be no shortage of like-minded individuals who will be fascinated to hear your moves, if only so they can share theirs. This is your target audience. Please, leave the rest of us alone. Good night, and good luck.

Fantasy football has taken over America. It has re-shaped the way fans watch, the way fans root, and the way fans discuss the game. Hamilton is right: this is a phenomenon that’s not going away. I just wish fans would just take her advice to heart.
