You captured the hearts of sports fans everywhere when you said during your presidential campaign that you wanted to institute a college playoff system. (That still needs to happen, by the way. You might even turn Utah into a blue state.)
Neutral is for Switzerland. This is America.
And you seem to have the kind of pull to get this done, Mr. President.
I can safely speak for fantasy football players by saying that we need -- no, demand -- a constitutional amendment outlawing the running-back-by-committee (RBBC) in the NFL.
There was a time when it was only former Broncos coach Mike Shanahan who ruined fantasy teams by sharing carries. Now, more and more coaches have adopted this fantasy-killing policy. Baltimore's John Harbaugh is the most egregious offender. Harbaugh seemed to put all three of his running backs' names into a hat, pulled one name out about 30 minutes prior to kickoff and ran that back into the ground.
At least Shanahan used to provide an exceptional passing game, even getting some fantasy mileage from Jake Plummer at one point. What did Harbaugh give us? Joe Flacco? Thanks for nothing, John. Hopefully, getting your team to the AFC Championship Game in your first season as coach was worth drawing the wrath of millions of fantasy footballers.
Think of it. LaDainian Tomlinson possibly in a running-back-by-committee. One of the automatic locks in recent fantasy drafts possibly splitting carries with a guy who wouldn't see eye-to-eye with must junior high kids.
This cannot happen.
When fantasy football's greatest running back could be turned into the Tony Mandarich of fantasy drafts, the time for action is now. We ask you, Mr. President, to outlaw the running-back-by-committee.
Oh, and can we deduct the cost of this magazine as a business expense?
