Funston vs. Karabell

Postby sixer03fan » Wed Mar 28, 2007 12:19 am

Who would win a death match of fantasy gurus?
Yahoo's Brandon Funston or ESPN's Eric Karabell?

I personally think funston gets a bad rep but he normally knows what he's talkin about. And karabell is a little overrated because he works for espn. My vote goes to funston!

Funston usually has pretty whacky rankings and drafts, but I cant rip on him too much considering he beat me and everybody else in the football challenge league. But I definitley agree with Karabell more than Funston, and whenever I see him giving a fantasy update on the Hot List, he gives out some pretty good voice.

I voted Karabell

I voted Karabell though I don't like either. Give me Schwartz over both any day of the week.

Karabell is an absolute buffoon. I hate Funston also but I don't think he is as dumb as Karabell.

I'm not a huge fan of Funston, and Karabell is okay, I liked his radio show because I thought he did a good job with it, though not because I thought he had any spectacularly helpful insight, just thought he exectuted a well run fantasy radio show.

I think Karabell is pretty good. The fact remains everyone always has differing opinions. I don't think it's fair to say they are stupid because of them.

Unless their name is Matt Berry :-o .

That guy is a whole new kind of dumb.

I voted for Funston. But I thought you meant an actual deathmatch as opposed to a fantasy one. Oops.
