We’ve already posted our regular content today with Thursday’s Preseason Watch List and the Podcast Review. Since that’s already out for the viewing world, we wanted to take a moment today to ask each of you to check out three of our most valued partners in Reality Sports Online, Fleaflicker and 4for4.com. Each of these sites offers something uniquely different, but one thing rings true with all of them – they’re run by good, hard working people.
I can assure you personally that we’re not getting paid by these different sites for mentioning them today, we simply feel strongly about what they provide as a complement to DLF and wanted to pay it forward if you will since each of them has been very good to us over the past few months. Here’s what each of the sites is all about:
Formed in 2011 by former NFL team personnel, Reality Sports Online’s mission is to deliver fantasy sports platforms that emulate the front office operations and general manager experience of professional sports organizations. Reality Sports Online satisfies the needs of the fantasy elite by providing the world’s most engaging and realistic fantasy experience.
These guys really have something cool and if you haven’t checked it out, you should. If you want to take a dynasty league to the next level, this may just be it. We’ll actually be doing a review of their platform here soon for the site because we’ve tried it and think it’s fantastic. We asked the good folks at Reality Sports Online for some information about what they provide and here’s what they said:
“On some level, everyone who plays Fantasy Sports does so to recreate the GM experience. Over the last decade or so, fantasy participants have become knowledgeable, analytical users. But the platforms on the market have not kept pace with the increased aptitude of the dynasty demographic. Users have been forced to try to add layers of realism to the games they play on their own. Reality Sports Online is the next step in the evolution of Fantasy Sports, designed for fantasy elite.
What’s the best part about being a real-life GM? It’s trying to build a championship team by picking the talent, negotiating contracts and signing players. RSO provides this experience by enabling fantasy team owners to negotiate multi-year contracts in real-time online in the Free Agency Auction Room. The Free Agency Auction Room is RSO’s most innovative feature, simulating real-life Free Agency over the course of 2 to 3 hours instead of 2 to 3 months.
Other key features include:
** A rookie draft with slotted contracts based on draft selection
** Partially guaranteed contracts
** A salary cap based on NFL rules
** Use of a franchise tag
** Fully customizable scoring, roster, and contract settings
Reality Sports Online emulates professional front office operations, without requiring a commissioner to spend hours a day tracking moves and entering data. Reality Sports Online does all the contract record keeping and Salary Cap calculations for you. Fantasy is now Reality at realitysportsonline.com.”
We encourage you to check it out!

If you’ve never checked them out, we really invite you to give them a shot. Our goal at DLF is to give you best experience in fantasy football and these sites help us achieve just that.
