Default Fantasy Sports: Can it affect the outcome of a REAL game?

Do you think any professional athletes take part in fantasy leagues?

Let's just take Peyton Manning for example. He's in a fantasy football league, and his opponent for the week has him as the starting QB.

Is it feasible that Manning might be 'off' for the sake of a fantasy football league?

Is it even more feasible if it's a money or prize league?


Thoughts? Comments? Opinions?

Wouldn't that be a form of gambling or somthing that affects the game (like the Black Sox)?

No offense Stick, but this has to be the worst thread you ever made. There's no way big players like Manning and Co. are messing with their game to win money in a pool. There's no way they can win more money in a pool then they can in their contract.

He said he never gambled on his own team. Only other teams. You said that players might throw off their own game to make others lose.

If anything he'd try to get all of his own players such as Harrison and just throw the damn ball to him 13 times a game. LOL.
