Fantasy Football In The Workplace

The folks over at WiseBread have posted a really good article on how fantasy football affects the productivity in an office.  A few key points that I found interesting from the article:

  • Fantasy football costs corporate America an estimated $36.7 million daily on lost productivity.
  • The average manager spends 34 minutes a day just thinking about his team, NOT including time spent on the web changing their team around.
  • Now, multiply that figure per league!  I know my room mate is in 4 leagues this year.

It’s easy to see why corporate America is trying to put the brakes on one of the bigger time thieves of the season.  What are your thoughts?

    First thought- Holy hell Drew blarghed. 😉
    Second thought- wowsers. I can kind of see the appeal though; I know I blog too much or read other blogs way too much at work some days. I don’t consider it a time waster, but I know that’s what it is.
