(SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t watched Game of Thrones, there shouldn’t be any plot reveals and you will be able to easily follow along with the article.)
I may be mistaken, but sometimes I believe I’m too competitive for certain members of the dynasty community. Don’t get me wrong, I treasure all of the friendships I’ve made by writing and joining new startups. Yet, the closer my camaraderie with someone, the stronger my desire to defeat them on the faux gridiron.
If I have a fantasy football alter ego, it is without a doubt one Mr. Tywin Lannister from Game of Thrones. Tywin is one of the most cunning and calculating television villains in history and is always one step ahead of his adversaries. The only concern of the patriarch of House Lannister is to do whatever is necessary to keep his namesake in power and preserve the family legacy.
While this ‘take no prisoners to achieve your goal’ credo has no place in everyday society, it’s perfect for dynasty football. Except, you are using whatever strategies necessary (and within the rules) to bring home championship gold.
