  There is no doubt that sports fans are amongst the most avid fans of any interest , hobby or enthusiasm. Even pop musicians are hard pressed to garner the kind of following that sports fans give to their chosen sport of interest. Fans of every nature have forever sought ways to get closer to their passion. Football, basketball, baseball and other sports fans in particular have many options to explore aside of attending games or watching them on TV, with an increasingly popular option being participation in the world of fantasy leagues and various other forms of fantasy sports wherein each day becomes a 24 hour sports day.

While not new, fantasy sports is a world that has grown dramatically thanks to the Internet. Fans are no longer confined to games at work, pools amongst friends , or through other other local avenues. The Internet provides a seemingly unending source of people, groups and leagues in which a fan can participate. Each league a fan joins within a single sport gives them an opportunity to play a different strategy. In leagues where one has to bid for players a fan may not even be able to assemble the same team they are playing in a different league thereby forcing them to use a different strategy in building their team.

Once you have your team or teams it¡¯s time to sit back and watch sports. But wait, you are no longer just a viewer, you are involved, because you have a vested interest in how ¡°your¡± players do. The latest sports results matter. Each player stat, each move they make , each injury they incur has a direct impact on how your team does, moving you up or down in the ranks of each league you are involved in. Suddenly it matters all the more what happens on and off the field, court, diamond, ice, etc. Fantasy sports put the participants in the role of owner and manager having to make very much the same choices as those real world individuals , and subsequently dealing with the results of those choices. So you can guarantee that fantasy players are watching for the latest sports headlines. This is a far cry from sitting in the stands or on the couch yelling at the refs, managers and players, now fans can yell at themselves for making lousy choices or pat themselves on the back for their excellent foresight and expert ¡°playing.¡± It is still common for people to set up leagues with friends or folks at work. The more avid fans will play in any arena they can, often you hear these folks playing with friends, coworkers, and in multiple on line leagues as well. There are enough different sports active in the fantasy sports world that you can play all year long , so the avid sports fan never has to do without.
