Wojo's fantasy column

    Like most on the board (i think), I generally am a fan of Gene Wojciechowski's work. His recent effort on fantasy football, however, screamed of mailing it in.


    I realize major columnists are not gonna hit a home run every at-bat, so I have no problem giving him a pass. Most interesting, though, is not how bad the column is -- I'm more interested in the comments at the bottom of the page. I can't imagine Wojo is happy about having all those negative comments at the bottom of his work.

    I agree with you completely. Got about a third of the way in and went somewhere else.

    A list of bad one-liners does not a good column make.

    Looks like Rick Reilly sat in for Wojo that day.

    Seems like it. I may be a bit sensitive though. About a year ago, under a different screen name, I criticized a comment of Wojo's in one of his columns about baseball. I was immediately rebuked.

    Between this and his pointless anti-soccer piece, Wojo's in a bit of a slump lately.

    That's ok, College football season starts this week.

    Wojo is generally very, very good.
  9. Yikes.

    I like Wojo, but this was god-awful.
  10. If nothing else, the Denny Green reference in 14 kinda made me smirk.
  11. A few of them made me laugh. Maybe not his best column, but not everything is going to be a tear-jerker or soapbox moment. I have no problem with him trying something like this.
  12. Given the popularity of Fantasy Football, I thought it was a pretty good parody of the many fantasy columns written in papers and around the web. As with any "list" column, there were some winners and clunkers. But he gave it a shot.
