Its great to begin with...
12 February 2015 | by spudster_01See all my reviews

I really love this show, i find it hilarious, the characters are great.

However, when i first started watching this show i loved how much they cared about their league and fantasy football and how their lives revolved around it. Once the series went on it sort of drifted away from this side of the story, basically making it about 5 guys and 1 of their wives, who seem to have a hobby that pops up, the league itself becomes a small factor in what should be the centrepiece of the whole show,

I loved at the start where they went different places for the drafts and that they cared so much, but now it seems the only episodes related to the league are the first and last on each season.
