No matter where you live across this great country of ours, one thing binds all fantasy football enthusiasts together—the joy of the live draft. After doing dozens over the years, the Mac Bros. have come to the conclusion that there are 12 basic personalities at every draft.
The Role Playing GuyBelieving that he's drafting an actual team, he HAS to make it as real as possible. Each pick involves a full-blown production: "With the fourth pick in the 10th round of the 2010 Fantasy Football draft, the Sorcerers Dragons team selects from the University of Florida and Heisman Trophy-winning Quarterback Tim Tebow." He's never invited back.
The Last Season GuyHe can't get over last season, spending the entire draft talking about why he didn't win last year. "My guys got hurt!" "I was on vacation one week and couldn't set my team!" and "I think our league's online scoring messed up!"
Is he any good?"
The PossessorIt's his belief that all NFL players belong to him. If you happen to be within four turns of this guy, watch out. He will point his finger and shake his fists, telling you, "Man, you just stole my pick!" or "Dude, what are you doing? I was totally going to pick that guy!"
The Crappy PrognosticatorHe always knows something no one else does. He's grabbing rookies and "sleepers" left and right. When everyone stares and laughs at him, he just says, "Oh, you'll see." Sure, he's only had one prediction come true in the past five season, but he'll keep reminding you of it every year.
The AgonistHe's the reason that you instituted a 60-second time limit on draft picks in the first place. He so agonizes over each choice that he's all but frozen after the first round.
