Episode 28: It's Only Fantasy

When we look toward the periphery of the sporting spectacle we find a new growing section in the grandstand where fandom goes beyond merely spectating. Evolving from the original Rotisserie League of intellectuals, these spectators are playing their own game within the game - a simulation of sorts to determine who is the best (or luckiest) armchair scout and general manager in sports. For some, this is just another casual way to bond with sporting comrades. For others, it’s an obsessive full time plunge into the matrix of sports statistics.  Jason the JACKKNIFE! Crim helps us sift through all the numbers and nonsense to better understand the world of fantasy sports.
