How many of you are truly 3-sportdextrous in fantasy?

Postby orange12 » Wed Jul 04, 2007 3:09 am

Just curious, how many people here can honestly say they enjoy playing and are competitive each year in all three of the big sports? (Baseball, basketball, and football.) I find myself most knowledgeable about baseball and I did pick up fantasy basketball a few years back and love the game now. But for the life of me I can't get into fantasy football or care for the game beyond which teams are winning and who's the top stars. Can anyone say they love playing fantasy games for all three sports?

Also, anyone 4-sportdextrous? (With expertise in hockey, golf, nascar, etc...)

I feel I'm an "expert" at baseball and football, but totally suck at any other sports.

I've won a few leagues or placed high in basketball or hockey, but it was by 100% pure luck. The next year I dropped like a fly in the standings, and rightfully so.

I love baseball and find it far and away the best fantasy exp. then football which I feel confident in, and basketball I get all into at the begining, but it hasn't been able to sustain my interest.

I play fantasy hockey instead of basketball. I've drifted as a basketball fan and only play fantasy occasionally. However, I wouldn't call myself a Fantasy Hockey expert. My knowledge of the low tier of players and the minor/European leagues is minimal.

I'm mildly competitive in fantasy football but I definitely don't take it as seriously as I take fantasy baseball. How can I? They don't play most of the week. I played fantasy basketball as a joke for the first time this year. I know nothing about it or the NBA and I can name every NBA player I know on one hand. I wasn't even sure what an SF was. I played in a 10-team league with 9 other fairly knowledgeable and competitive guys. It was roto style.

Not only did I win the league, but I won by a landslide... trash talking the entire way. This just goes to show how reject fantasy basketball is; I drafted from a draft list I found after 5 minutes of Googling, and then just add/dropped players based on their Yahoo ranking throughout the season. End result was a dominant team. Throughout I didn't read any NBA news or watch a single second of an NBA game. I'd put money on the same practice next year.

What's up with the NBA not having a DL/IR? That pissed me off for a while, but otherwise I just checked my team's lineup regularly and made sure whoever could play that day was playing. That's it, fantasy basketball is a joke.

I haven't played fantasy football for a few years. I signed up for a couple leagues for next season, we'll see how that goes. I'm in a two team NASCAR league with my buddy. That's pretty much just for bragging rights. I plan on joining a hockey league next season, but I'm sure I'll forget about it after the first week or so.

Quit football a long time ago but I am probalby going to play this year.

I used to be a big hockey guru (always loaded up on stud defensemen) and won a bunch of titles before the strike. Haven't gone back.

I play both fantasy baseball and football and care about both equally. Completely different games but both very fun in their own ways. I like baseball for the strategy and marathon-like season which I find very exciting. But I play football because there's nothing like football on a Sunday (and I like to watch the NFL a bit more than the MLB although both are fine).

I casually follow the NBA so I don't play fantasy basketball. I'm a huge college hoops fan so the NBA kind of turns me off.
