Brandon Jacobs: Fantasy football is a “huge problem”

Giants running back Brandon Jacobs received some death threats from a fantasy football player who threatened him if didn’t perform this past Monday night.

Jacobs says fantasy football is a problem.

“When you say stuff like that and think it’s a joke, it’s a problem,” Jacobs said via the New York Daily News. “It’s a good thing he was where he was at that time.”

Jacobs said there’s nothing good about fantasy football and stated that it’s a “huge problem.”

“That’s all people ever talk about,” Jacobs said. “You sit down to eat at a restaurant and people say, ‘Hey you, I got you on my fantasy team, you gotta do something for me.’ Come on, I’m trying to enjoy my dinner.

“Players don’t want to hear anything about fantasy football,” he added. “We’re not living fantasy football. As far as anything else, we don’t owe anybody.”

I agree with Jacobs.  A lot of people take fantasy football and a lot of other meaningless things too seriously.
