Fancy Football?

What’s this I keep hearing about Fancy Football? Everyone seems to be playing it. There are even sports t-shirts dedicated to it.
 
Supposedly you can pick different players from different teams and create your own “fancy football team”. It seems like a real trend, but I’m a bit lost here. I thought football was anything but fancy. I mean, you’ve got guys knocking heads together, trying to hit each other as hard as they can. Far from “fancy” I’d say.

Do “fancy football” players wear dresses? Is it like the lingerie football league, where women dressed in lingerie knock heads together? If so, I might be interested, but then again, seeing men in lingerie might not be my “cup of tea”.

 
Then again, it could be comical, but I don’t know how that amusement would last more than five minutes. I mean, can you imagine a 350 lb. Shaun Rogers in lingerie? Uh, maybe five minutes might be too long to watch that. But you have to admit, it might be good for a chuckle, and it would be the only time Tim Tebow would be a #1 pick!
 
I don’t know. It still sounds too fancy for me. I mean whatever “fancy football” is, I’m sure legendary players scoff at the thought. Can you imagine Deacon Jones, Bronco Nagurski or Art Donovan playing something called “fancy football”? OMG, I can hear them talking about it now…
 
“Fancy football, are you f**king nuts? I’ll smash your head in and then see how fancy you feel, you like pencil-necked geek…”
 
I kind of agree, I don’t see football being fancy in any, way, shape or form.
George Carlin made a great point when he talked about managers in baseball wearing uniforms and asks, “Can you picture Bill Parcells in his NY Giant uniform?”
 
See Baseball can be fancy, it can be fancy-gallancy in fact. But football? Come on man!
 
I don’t know, I don’t think I can get behind this fancy football game thing. I just prefer good old un-fancy football where men are men and women wear the lingerie. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that…)
