That’s right! The newest Team Owners in the FCFL are Kinda Funny, with co-founder Greg Miller serving as their primary Fan Captain. Fellow Kinda Funny founders, Tim Gettys and Nick Scarpino will join Miller in helping the fans shape the identity of their team.
You might be asking, what do a bunch of guys that talk about video games know about football? Our first response to that is HOW RUDE!?! After all, that’s how WE got here. We’re a bunch of people that love playing video games, including Madden, and love to think we know better than the coach on the field. These are our people. These are YOUR people.
What does Kinda Funny have to say about this new endeavor? “Our business is built on the idea that we aren’t making Kinda Funny for our Best Friends but that we’re making Kinda Funny with our Best Friends,” said Co-Founder Greg Miller who is excited to join the FCFL, highlighting the alignment of brands. “The opportunity to own a football team where our audience makes all the decisions is the most Kinda Funny thing we could ever do, and we can’t wait to get out there and make a fool of all the pretenders to the FCFL throne.”
“Look – the Co-Founders of the FCFL are legit gamers and Kinda Funny Best Friends,” said Patrick Dees, Chief Gaming Officer of the FCFL. “Everything Greg and Kinda Funny does is done FOR their fans and that’s what this league is all about. Personally, I wouldn’t sleep on this group to go all the way in season one. They are in it to win it all and frankly, the other captains and team owners better be ready.”
Previously, we announced Richard Sherman, Marshawn Lynch, Prince Royce and Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson as Team Owners and Fan Captains, and they definitely have their work cut out for them. In their first official message to the fans, Kinda Funny is looking to send Prince Royce to the bottom of the Billboard charts and maybe help bail you out if you flip over Ochocinco’s car. The trash talking is definitely in full swing!
