    Do women feel like Fantasy Football is not meant for them?

    I've noticed a growing interest in FFL amongst women I know and wanted a larger pool to see if this isn't just in my circles. To answer my own question, no. Many women who I've spoken to either had an interest in playing without my help or didn't play because they didn't understand it. One lady even said, "Had I known more of how it worked, I would have done it years ago. It's more fun than other types of games I spent a lot of time on and I'm not even a football fan. Now, it's something my husband and I spend a lot of time together doing."

    i think you may be asking a sexist question? (smile)
    women that enjoy football also enjoy playing fantasy football and you may be surprised at the number of women that play.
    i think a better question would be do men and women feel like fantasy football is not meant for them. this question is sort of like saying do women feel like football is not meant for them?
    i personally love football in all shapes and forms and have forever! There are thousands of women that feel the same way.

      Just keep in mind that Football itself is a fantasy.  It is a made up game contained in a made up space with made up penalties. People buy into the fantasy which is football and spend billions of dollars on it.  How might that money be better spent?

    All apologies if this came off sexist though seem to understand it wasn't my intent. Your statement sparks a different sort of thought for me though. However, let's face it, 90% of FFL are comprised of men thus the reason for my question. I know there are tons of female football fans out there, where do they go when it comes to FFL. Look for a new hub in the near future to delve further into your comment and the thought it has provoked. Thank you.
