Top 10 Fantasy Football 2012 Disappointments

Fantasy Football Picks’ Biggest Losers….Starting with Mike Vick

According to Eric Gargiulo: We past the halfway point of the fantasy football season and it is time to start calling people out. Those people are the highly ranked preseason players who have turned into huge disappointments and those arrogant experts who told you to pick them.

For many of us, your fantasy football season is made or broken on draft day. It is almost impossible to recover from a busted first or second-round draft pick. Those other players you passed up have gone on to either live up or exceed expectations. Your opponents got stronger as your team turned into a big fat bust. It’s time to call out those disappointments who have given you weeks of frustration and a stressful fantasy football season.

Some of Eric’s losers:
Michael Vick
LeSean McCoy
Cam Newton
Matt Forte

Fantasy Sports: The Most Unrealistic Sports Scenes in Movie History, Now Has a Part II

Sorry Tom, but a man of your diminutive size playing volleyball – and having any level of success doing so – is simply too unrealistic not to highlight here.

Last year the Midwest Sports Fan’s Keith Mullett posted a list of sports scenes from movies that were so patently absurd he felt they needed to be ranked to determine which was indeed the most unrealistic of all.

Little did he know, the article would go viral.

It seems people really like watching terrible movie depictions of athletic contests. And it seems people like to get really mad when a movie they like is included on such a list.

After revisiting the comments section of that article, he realized (with the help of you, the reader) that there are just too many great scenes that he left out. He still stands by his original 10, but he decided to make a second list – a sequel, if you will – to shed light on some more awful sports scenes.

See the first list here.

See the sequel list here.

What do you think are the most fantastical movie moments?
