Occupation: Operations Manager - online lending exchange company
Hometown: Rock Hill, SC
Family: I have a very loving wife and three wonderful children. Two boys (12 & 9) and a girl (11)
Years playing fantasy football: Started in the mid-90's. Back when Warren Moon, Chris Warren, Terrence Mathis, Robert Brooks, Terry Allen and Emmitt Smith dominated the fantasy world.
Favorite FF smack talk: You do know I won the league last year, right?
Years writing about fantasy football: This is my 12th year as a staff member with Footballguys.
Favorite FBG feature: There are so many great features. Lately my favorite feature has been all of the weekly DFS projections and analysis based on those projections that is customized for every major (and minor) daily site out there. I won't submit a DFS lineup without first using that tool. One other favorite feature: All of the Footballguys podcasts are incredibly underrated and unbelievably useful. Listening to the thoughts and opinions of my colleagues and building my own conclusions is how I stay on top of my game. If you want to up your game, listen to the podcasts and reap the benefits.
Organized football experience: I was a soccer player, but always appreciated and followed pro football.
Favorite NFL team: Carolina Panthers
Favorite college team: Clemson for football & UNC for basketball
Favorite fan moment: When Cam Newton led the Panthers to a fourth quarter come from behind victory in the Super Bowl....oh wait.
Favorite player of all time: Past: Bo Jackson, Marcus Allen, Jim Kelly, Bruce Smith, Marshall Faulk, Priest Holmes Present: Luke Kuechly, J.J. Watt, Aaron Rodgers, Cam Newton, Greg Olsen, Christian McCaffrey
NFL rule(s) I would change if I could: Offensive pass interference - Fifteen yards is enough. Let's not penalize a defense 30-40+ yards on what could likely have been a questionable call.
Favorite movie(s): Too many to name. I'm a big fan of crime and court room dramas, heist movies, espionage flicks, as well as suspenseful action. I'm also a big fan of movie soundtracks and original scores.
Favorite musical genres/albums/artists: I grew up a U2 and Rush fan, so they have to be mentioned first. After that, it's a conglomeration of all things 70's, 80's and classic rock with some modern rock and pop thrown in.
What I read: Anything that can keep my attention.
Hobbies: Twitter @JeffHaseley. I enjoy interacting with other fantasy minded people, analyzing numbers, data, and stats. Spending time with my wife and family and travelling.
Favorite TV show(s): Sports, does that count? I don't watch a lot of TV, although I do like crime and forensic shows.
Least favorite household chore: Laundry
Dream job: I would love to have a position working in a public relations department for a pro sports team. It's not work if you love what you do.

Parting thoughts: Time is one of those strange things in life. It is constant, always passing you by. An invisible force that in our world we cannot see. Maybe one day we will be able to traverse time like we can our other dimensions. Until then, live in the moment. Enjoy your moments you have with friends, family, even strangers. Enjoy the seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, years, decades of your life. Try and impact as many people as you can. Interact with everyone. You never know whether that person walking on the other side of the street will be your best friend or not. Live and cherish every part of your time, for one day, our time will be up and nothing will be left of us but the feint memory that lives in those we have touched. - CA
