In this week’s “Love/Hate” Column by Matthew Berry, he revives his description of “that guy” in every league. (If you haven’t read it, you should.) Anyway, one of the quotes I liked best:
“‘That guy’ is a sexist. Won’t let a woman in his league or thinks it’s the end of the world when he loses to a woman. Some of the smartest sports people I know and best fantasy players I’ve seen are women. And I’ve yet to meet one who was ‘that guy,’ which is why this column isn’t asking you not to be ‘that person.’ Everyone plays. Get used to it and get better.”
Fortunately I haven’t encountered this sexism in any of my leagues (at least to my face). Knowledge of the game gets respect–it’s as simple as that.
