FSB Daily 10/25: Yahoo!, FF Consulting, ‘The League’

Monday, October 25th, 2010

A roundup of items recently posted on the FSB News page.

- Yahoo! has rolled out Android apps for managing fantasy hockey and fantasy basketball teams.

- It’s from more than a month ago, but still interesting: Sports business reporter Sarah Talalay of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel tells us about a pair of fantasy players who have taken on fantasy football consulting duties for friends, as well as brothers who get personal help annually from CBS Sports’ Jamey Eisenberg.

- Thousands of fantasy fans — or just dudes who like dude humor — are into the second season of The League on FX. Here’s a look back on an interview TV.com did with four cast members and co-creator Jackie Marcus-Schaeffer.

- This columnist for The Trentonian points to fantasy football’s predominance as the reason for the ratings edge the Week 6 Titans-Jaguars NFL matchup on ESPN held over the simultaneous Yankees-Rangers ALCS game on TBS. That lopsided Titans victory, of course, ended with a fantasy-altering touchdown run for Chris Johnson that spurred the Monday Night Football crew to discuss the play’s effect on fantasy owners (led by Mike Tirico).
