Fryingpan Sports is much better than Fantasy football and now it’s FREE!


By Bill Smith

Fantasy football can be fun but more often it’s just frustrating. Even in keeper teams, you build a team and then lose all but 2 or 3 players to free agency. The season lasts 14 weeks plus playoffs not all year long. It has one draft and if you blow it (like the Browns always do), you live with your errors for 4 months.

The worst part is when your first round choice is injured, or a pinhead coach decides to pass and not run the ball, you have no prayer of winning. I don’t waste my time with fantasy football any longer because I have found something much more enjoyable and realistic—

32 players work as Owners/GM of their favorite team from scouting rookies to the draft to training camp and then through the regular season and playoffs. The GM drafts players based on actual NFL players through the 2007 season, sets the lineups, develops individual game plans for both offense and defense.

As a former semi-pro coach, I can truly say that this game is the closest thing to real coaching. A season takes only a month. Next month, you have the draft and keep the players you have developed minus the ones that have retired for the next season. In just a couple of months, you can tell if your team is getting better or if you need to change your plan and rebuild.

Perhaps the best part is the off season. Scouting the players and deciding what you need is good, but negotiating trades with other teams is even better. Make the right trade and your team gets better but pick a guy that doesn’t fit with what you really need, and it can set your team back for seasons. Then get ready for the live draft.

With, you deal with injuries, but don’t have to worry about team chemistry. I guarantee that TO will not cry at a press conference. Are you good enough to get to the playoffs let alone play in the Sims Bowl? If you try it, you will like it. Every day it is a challenge but the wins are even more satisfying than in Fantasy because they are based on planning and team strength rather than luck.

The standard game is now free to play for everyone. If you love football, you owe it to yourself to give it a try. You have nothing to lose but the boredom of the off season. At the very least, check it out.

That’s what I think. Tell me what you think.

    This sounds amazing. So many teams and so many players, much better than fantasy football.
    In the free leagues that I play in, owners draft 6 teams or something and then they stop managing the bad teams and finish the season with only one or two active teams. If your in one of the other leagues you have a team that no one is managing. This happens all the time.
