FAN Take is a series that highlights trending events, issues, and decisions in the world of sports and analyzes how they may or may not factor into the Fan Controlled Football League. We would love to hear your feedback, so let us know what you think about each FAN Take!
We’re officially a month out from watching some of our favorite NFL players duke it out in the ’40 Yards of Gold.’ The competition features contestants facing off in one-on-one 40-yard dashes in a knockout tournament. Our favorite part? Fans were the ones that voted on the match-ups! As for the results, the folks over at 40 Yards of Gold are really making us wait. The good news is they did announce the first one match-up: Tedd Ginn, Jr. vs. Jacoby Ford. Tedd Ginn, Jr. has even mentioned wanting to throw some money on this competition. We don’t know about you, but we think adding some of that NFL money to the competition would definitely make us run a little faster.
Of course, we’ll be collecting footage for fans to review ahead of the first-ever FCFL Draft, including drills like the 40-yard dash, but would the fans want to see something like this ahead of the second season? Do you want to see your Season One favorites face off against one another? What about against the incoming talent? We’re so close to the ‘first snap’ of our inaugural season, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t already thinking of what to do in Season Two! Sound off fans, and let us know if this is something you want to see!
