Years playing fantasy football: Calendar Years - 20+; FF League Seasons - I can't count that high DFS 4 (retired)

Favorite FF smack talk: "Did you stretch before that reach?" "Wait, I have to find that guy, he's not in my Top 400" "Great pick - for YOUR team"

Years writing about fantasy football: A long, long time.... 12+ years, on staff at Footballguys since 2006

Favorite FBG feature: The Roundtable is a great feature for getting the pulse of the staff. As for stats, it is hard to beat the target data and game summaries.

Organized football experience: Some HS and intramural in college. Coaching in college (Student Athletic Director). Coached/coaching kids flag and little leagues.

Favorite NFL team: Philadelphia Eagles (and of late, Baltimore Ravens)

Favorite college team: Rutgers, Virginia Tech and UDel.

Favorite fan moment: Super Bowl XV - Oakland vs. Philadelphia. Hooked me for good.

Favorite player of all time: Current - Odell Beckham Jr., DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy. All-time - Ron Jaworski, then probably Brian Westbrook.

NFL rule(s) I would change if I could: Throwing a football into the stands is a fine ($500 I believe). If baseball can do it, why not the NFL?

Favorite movie(s): Raising Arizona, Reservoir Dogs, From Dusk Til Dawn, Terminator, Die Hard

Favorite musical genres/albums/artists: Pop, Rock and Alternative - From Led Zeppelin to Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots and Foo Fighters. More current stuff includes the Black Keys, No Doubt / Gwen Stefani, Maroon 5 / Adam Levine. Plus hair bands, how can you not have a place in your heart for '80s hair bands? Last but not least, Guns 'n' Roses at their peak.

What I read: Besides sports I mostly read items about entrepeneuring, real estate and poker stories. Some financial things as well, and also self-improvement.

Hobbies: Cryptocurrency, Sports, frisbee golf, and spending time with the kids and the family.

Favorite TV show(s): The Big Bang Theory, Shark Tank, Survivor, The Apprentice, Pawn Stars, Storage Wars, NFL Matchup and the guilty pleasure of American Idol.

Least favorite household chore: Does anyone like any of them? Probably go with the "Dirty Jobs" of toilets....

Parting thoughts: Life moves pretty fast - Footballguys helps you to keep pace.

Describe Fantasy Football In 25 Words Or Less: Fantasy football teams are like vacations - everyone is happy to hear you took one this year, but no one wants to know the details.
