  1. Matt,
    I’d like to thank you for doing the original write ups of this league a couple years ago and for continuing to do so. There is, I believe, tremendous value added in reading how giants of the industry–many of the people in this league are heroes to casual fantasy football fans–tackle the issues of team construction and off-season management. Listening to some of the owners’ podcasts or reading their strategy articles and then seeing how they’ve implemented those ideas in a practical fashion, and against peer level competition, is a tremendous experience.

    As an aside: I first learned about RSO from your RSO Writer’s League articles laying out the platform and the system. I have since joined two leagues there and it is, without question, my favorite place to participate in fantasy football. So there’s a separate thank you in here for publicizing and, in so doing, helping legitimize a new fantasy football platform.

    It’s a great league and I look forward to continuing to follow it in the future!
