I enjoy playing NFL Fantasy Football and have for the past 10 years.
And after winning my league in 7 of the past 10 years, my virtual trophy case looks a lot like Barcelona’s real one.
It’s time for a new challenge.
Luckily, the folks at 11kicks have paired up with BigSoccer to bring an EPL Fantasy Game. It's a perfect game for me, Since I don't have a dog in the fight (at least until Scunthorpe break through -- come on Iron), I have no allegiance to anyone, or team.
The game itself is set up much like the World Cup Fantasy game from earlier this summer (in which I was, well, less successful – the effing know-it-alls turned it to be effing wrong most of the time).
We have unprecedented coverage of the EPL games in the US now (we see almost as many EPL games as the MFL), so you can watch all of your expert selections in action. Rub it in your buddies’ faces when your forward get hat tricks. Throw your pub glass through their plasma screen when the other one misses a sitter (figuratively, of course).
Like the World Cup game, you can play for fun, get randomly selected into a group, or create a Private group. For all of you experts (you know who you are) you can always make it interesting. There are three pay levels, ranging from $4.99 to $24.99, and you can win up to $200. Not bad.
And if you have an awful week, everything starts anew the next week. There are some other rules and restrictions.
We have thousands of woulda could shoulda experts on these boards, so don’t tell why you woulda picked this player, coulda played in a 4-4-2, and shoulda kept the hot hand this week, show us why you are the best footie manager in bigsoccer. And why not make a little scratch for your efforts.
Good luck, but more importantly, have fun.
