Whale Shark Interview – Clayn8

Congrats Clayn8 on becoming another our Whale Sharks, 1000 messages on the Msg Boards!!
Thanks for the opportunity to participate in such a great site.

Well your profile gives me nothing to work with. No interests, no location, nothing. So tell us a bit about yourself. Where are you from? How old are you..etc..etc.. What’s a typical day for you like?
I live in Birmingham Alabama. I am 35 years old. I enjoy spending time with my wife and assorted variety of pets. I like watching football at the collegiate and pro level.

So, how long have you been participating in Fantasy Football?
I have been participating in Fantasy Football for three years now.

And how many leagues are you involved in?
I’m involved in a twelve team office league and I am looking forward to participating in the message board Guberleague next season.

Team Name(s) any meaning behind them?
My team is named the slobber knockers. I really enjoy watching good defensive play so it seemed appropriate.

So what do you think your best and worst pick of the year was?
We do an auction draft where we start with $300. I got Ahman Green for $71 which turned out to be a steal. I think I over paid for Heap at $35.

Interesting. How about some NFL questions now. How about who’s your NFL team?
The Pittsburgh Steelers are my favorite NFL team.

Long way from Alabama. And your favorite NFL Player? Past and Present.
My favorite from the past would have to be the 1975 Pittsburgh Steelers defense. My favorite current player is Ray Lewis. His intensity and passion for the game is incredible.

Ah…I see the Pittsburgh reason now. Any one particular player surprise you this year?
Rudi Johnson surprised me the most. I didn’t think he was fast enough to start in the NFL but I was wrong.

Great. Let’s talk about FantasySharks.com a bit. How did you come to find us?
I found Fantasy Sharks while searching for fantasy football sites on google. Fantasy Sharks was definitely the best site I found while doing my pre-season research.

How about your favorite FantasySharks feature or article?
Under the Microscope, Start/Bench list and The Lineup Coach are probably my favorites. I like checking my lineup against The Lineup Coaches projections.

Ok. On to the message boards. Seems like you really like helping people out with line-up advise.
I like both voicing my opinion and asking questions. I believe the more responses that a post gets the more accurate it becomes.

Very true. Any particular poster that you respect the most?
I really like to get everyone’s opinion on the questions posed on the message board. There are really too many people that have helped me or voiced their opinion to list them all.

Understandable. Ok, Last question. Still going to be with us for Great White status?
I will definitely be here to reach Great White Status. This site is the best I have found and have no reason to go anywhere else.

Thanks again for being such an active poster on the message boards! And congratulations on becoming a Whale Shark!!
