Ghostbusters: Who You Gonna Call on Opening Day?

Over the last 27 years, having been part of teams that created products and services for fantasy players like commissioner products, games, draft guides, apps, in-season packages, news and of course tools, this has been my favorite summer leading up to opening day and the team is the best I have EVER worked with.

Ghostbusters is a classic and one of the most quotable movies ever.  It has a star-studded cast led by super comedian, Bill Murray (Peter).  It is brilliantly written by Harold Ramis (Egon), Dan Aykroyd (Ray) and Rick Moranis (brilliant steals the show as Louis Tully). So, the concept is that Peter, Ray and Egon are masquerading as University scientists and when their grants are taken away, they set up shop to catch Ghosts.  Peter thinks it’s a joke, but what they don’t realize is that they will discover the gateway to another dimension leaving them as reluctant heroes destined to save New York City.

Why talk about Ghostbusters coupled with a summer of working with the Fantasy Alarm team?  Well, in the words of Winston Zeddmore:

“We have the tools.  We have the talent.”

We embarked on the journey almost three years ago to build an infrastructure here that would allow us showcase our talented news department, impressive informative and irreverent writers and design a system that would allow us to innovate quickly with CUSTOMIZABLE tools & features for our audience. 

You have likely seen the talent this week as the staff has been posting incredible amounts of content that is both information and entertaining.  We call in infotainment.  Below are some of the content that you may have missed.  Click here for a link to all of it on our NFL Features page.


 “Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.”


Yes. Total protonic reversal.  That is what sort of happens today.  You are not sure who to start and what to do.  We have it all for you to help you get there for both seasonal and one-week fantasy football.  Of course you should listen to Jeff Mans on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio at 11am ET today to help you get all the info you need.  Check out all these tools that are personalized to your scoring system.  Don’t forget to set it the way you want.  All the tools will keep this setting.


So enjoy all the great CUSTOMIZABLE things we have this year and please reach out with suggestions to make us better.

When the Key Master meets the Gatekeeper

The skies opened up and football began as it does for us today.  Today we embark on another season and/or learn more about how to craft weekly lineups on Fanduel or DraftKings or one of the other great sites to play each week.  We watch the games and enjoy each scoring play as the excitement builds to either a grand win or a demoralizing loss.  It is our life.  It is our love.  It is what we do.  So today for fantasy football players, it we feel it like the Ghostbusters said…

Ray: “Old Testament…real wrath of God type stuff. Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes…the dead rising from the grave!

Peter: “Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together…mass hysteria”

It is about you and needs to stay that way.  If you have suggestions on how to make things better or tools we should have, you can write to me directly at:
