THE 2010 FANTASY CHEATERS LEAGUE



ABOUT

The Fantasy Cheaters League is a purely for fun endeavour. It's been created by the advertising agency Host and doggedly pursued by a bunch of dreamers there who love the beautiful game and look forward to the Tournament like a kid looks forward to getting a new replica kit at Christmas.

Like all football fans we harboured dreams of representing our country at football, but only succeeded in reaching the dizzy heights of playing for our school or Sunday League team. But we love the beautiful game. In all its guises; the skill, goals, athleticism, rivalry, trivia...and the dirty, conniving cheating!

Because if we're honest with ourselves, it's the diving, injury feigning, yard stealing, time wasting gamesmanship as much as anything else that makes every tournament exciting, controversial and memorable.

So we've decided to celebrate this side of the game by creating The Fantasy Cheaters League. Because even though we only managed to play on football's lowest rung, we've tasted victory. We know the primitive competitive instinct it gives rise to. We've felt the injustices and dare we admit it, indulged in some of it ourselves!

RULES

Choose 11 cheating scumbags players from our squad lists. All player values are the same as nothing like this has been done before, and we're willing to give everyone a clean slate. Except Ronaldo.

Teams work on a 4-4-2 formation.

After submitting your team, you'll be able to edit it up until 1 hour before the first game of the competition. After that, all you have to do is watch the games and check our website for updated stats and info.

The prize for the winner is something all the money, fame and wealth of the biggest cheat in football cannot buy - respect.

(quite a funny read)

JOIN HERE

I think this is hilarious and will be joining. I think I'll probably do better at this than the actual FF for the World Cup. Are you joining and if so, who's making your 11?

That video is hilarious, particularly because at the end, it sounds like he says "even if you get up, your virginity will remain on the floor."

it's because we're arsenal.

cesc because even though we love him we know he's a little dramatic sometimes, diaby because he knocked out john terry that one time, and the english players just because well

Sergio will always have a special place in my heart, but he needs to be on every cheaters team ever.

And IDK, I actually didn't put Cristiano Ronaldo on my team because he has such a rep it seems like he might get called on his BS more. Although that might be my wishful thinking. =p

FC Main Boule!

I asked my friend what the French word for handball was but she didn't know, saying "idk, my dad just cusses at the TV mostly, lol." So I went with the literal translation, even though she said that was "Frenglish," which I am OK with. :D
portuguese peacock.selling_alibis on June 9th, 2010 03:20 am (UTC)
I literally cheered. I am IN LOVE.

Cristiano Drogba
This made me think of a very strange wedding ceremony.
/ot
portuguese peacock.selling_alibis on June 9th, 2010 02:54 pm (UTC)
I do not want to go to that wedding, no thanks. I don't know who's the bride and who's the groom and there's sure be to hysterics every three seconds.

Handbaggers FC

Buffon
Alves Terry Demichelis Cole
Mascherano Melo Busquets Gerrard
Eto'o Gilardino

My heart breaks for Eboue, he'd deserve to be here but I simply couldn't have two right backs. (Yesyes, I know that's not how the game works.) I'm already gutted that the midfield is the most dysfunctional I have ever seen.
