Fantasy Footballers Use Scandal To Slander Opponents

DALLAS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Finally, fantasy football fanatics have some fodder for their New England nemesis.

Last Thursday (Sept. 13), New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick was fined $500,000 for sending an employee to videotape and spy on the New York Jets’ plays during the season opener on September 9, and according to fantasy football guru David Dorey, the spying scandal is getting pretend players all fired up.

Dorey says, “It’s amusing and entertaining because in fantasy leagues we’ve always hated the Patriots! Now people can enjoy their hatred!”

Dorey says the Patriots, with their string of Super Bowl wins and arrogant attitude are “the NFL equivalent of the New York Yankees,” but admits the cheating gridiron gang isn’t as bad as one baseball basher’s foul play.

He says, “What the Patriots did is not tremendously different from what other teams do, they were just dumb about it. Unfortunately for football it’s a black eye, but nothing like Barry Bonds.”

For more football chat, check out Dorey’s book, Fantasy Football The Next Level: How To Build a Championship Team Every Season (Warner Books), in stores now.
