So how come fantasy football is accepted and even advertised on TV and radio while fantasy role-playing is still often considered a strange activity participated in by strange people? When was the last time you heard a radio spot offering you instant cash to role-play? Why can't Hasbro cough up money for TV spots for D&D 5th when these fantasy football leagues are recruiting during prime time? I mean, pretending is pretending, right? They are both numbers games with colorful logos and fanatical fan bases. Games Workshop did real fantasy football in 1987 with Blood Bowl. That other hobby, while conceived in 1962, didn't hit the big time until 1997.
