Two quick football thoughts

How big have fantasy sports become? There is now a website,, where guys can purchase “insurance” for the best players on their fantasy team. If that player gets hurt the website pays you for your wrecked fantasy season. I can’t imagine this will take off (although I bet the site turns a profit), most players are in it for the fun, not the money. I’m so serious about fantasy sports I wrote a strategy guide and my first response to this was still just to laugh.

Last year just six teams of the sixteen in the AFC had winning records. That is a remarkably low number and means no team not in the playoffs was over .500.
