As the summer season comes to an end a new season begins. I’m not talking about the weather but rather sports. The fall season is the beginning of the leagues fastest growing sport in America. No, I am not talking about the NBA or MLB postseason. I am talking about a league that requires no athletic abilities, a league that has no age limit. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Fantasy Football! – one of America’s fastest growing pastimes. A sport that started out as cottage industry, but now is dominated by the media. Major TV networks and sports print publishers have gotten in the game providing new player profiles and other helpful software to further enhance the Fantasy Sport.
Fantasy Sports, in general, has made such an impact on how us Americans view and participate in Sports coverage. Before, we use to just root for our beloved home teams and stand by them through thick and thin, well most of us did. Now, many sports fans draft their fantasy teams from players across the entire league, creating a roster of super fantasy teams ready for competing. This allows for a more diverse set of fans loving more than just their home team but giving individual players and other teams love and recognition across the entire league. “I use to never watch Football, now I can’t wait for the season to start so we can pick out players for my team,” said Sales Rep. D. Long. “This is so addicting, man I can’t wait,” and we were still in mid-July when he said this.
According to The Fantasy Football Times, “Fantasy Football is one of the fastest growing segments of the entire sports industry, and has become a billion dollar industry. It has brought football fans interaction with the sport they love to a whole new level that has never been achieved before by any other professional sports league in the world.” Man oh man, I can’t wait either!
