1. Talk Trash. A lot of it.
No fantasy football league can even be considered legitimate if you don’t talk trash. Otherwise you’re just playing spreadsheet football.
2. Have A Kick Ass Trophy
In The League they have Shiva, a trophy that appropriates the image of the valedictorian from their high school class. But if there’s no hardware, your league sucks.
5. Avoid El Cuñado
El Cuñado may mean “brother-in-law” in Spanish, but in the world of fantasy football it has a far deeper meaning. El Cuñado is that guy in your league who is just the worst. He doesn’t follow football. He’s a jerk. He might be certifiably insane. Avoid at all costs.
6. Nickname Each Other
The guys nicknamed Ruxin “The Herdsman.” Nicknames allow you to both humiliate your friends (see #4) and also provide bonding experiences. Nicknames are vital to a good fantasy league.
7. Ceremony Is A Necessity
Create traditions! Here the guys figure out their draft order by hitching their wagons to little kids who are racing. It may seem dumb, but it’s not. It makes your fantasy league mean more.
9. Destination Drafts
Why not spice up your league by going on a draft vacation. The League went to Vegas… I’ll give you a hint, that’s a very good place to have a fantasy draft.
10. Hang Out With The Athletes
Here’s Ruxin hanging out with Antonio Gates. I don’t know from experience, but I assume that would make your league even better.
