WORKERS are being coerced into joining complex and tedious fantasy football games.And so it begins
The office leagues, which purport to be a bit of a laugh but are more competitive than the real thing, are currently recruiting anyone unwary enough to say they “quite like football”.
Risk manager Stephen Malley said: Its all fun and games until youve handed over your £20.
Then you realise that youve paid real money to engage in a complicated mathematical exercise, ending up with a team full of unknown players because they were the right price.
The blokes running it turn out to be the worst bastards in existence, keeping all the transfer windows to themselves and always winning because theyve entered 20 teams each.
Its like being forced to play the stock market by people you hate.
Bill McKay of Lincoln said: The best bit is picking your team name, and believe me you regret that when you see Bottomham Hotstuds at the arse end of the table week after week.
Im a United fan, but I actually found myself angry whenever Persie scored last season because I knew the moron who ran the league had him on his team.
I hate everything about football now. The only sport I can bear to follow is bowls.
