Peyton Manning on Fantasy Football Fans


>>I MISS THE SHOWERS. DEFINITELY MISS THE SHOWERS.>>Jimmy: FOOTBALL HAS CHANGED A LOT SINCE YOU STARTED. I WAS LOOKING IT UP TODAY BECAUSE I WAS WONDERING HOW YOU RANKED AMONG FANTASY PLAYERS. I KNOW THAT DOESN’T REALLY MEAN ANYTHING. BUT IN MANY LISTS YOU’RE THE NUMBER ONE FANTASY QUARTERBACK OF ALL TIME. DO YOU TAKE ANY PRIDE IN THAT AT ALL? [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] AND DO YOU LIKE IT WHEN PEOPLE TELL YOU YOU’RE PART OF THEIR FANTASY TEAM?>>WELL, THERE’S NO DOUBT THAT FANTASY FOOTBALL IS EXTREMELY POPULAR.>>Jimmy: SURE.>>AND ANYTHING THAT GETS PEOPLE WATCHING THE GAME IS GOOD. BUT SOMETIMES A FANTASY FOOTBALL OWNER AND MY GOALS ARE DIFFERENT. OKAY? [ LAUGHTER ]>>Jimmy: YES.>>I’LL BE AT AN AIRPORT AND SOMEBODY WILL BE LIKE GREAT GAME YESTERDAY. I’M LIKE, WE LOST 35-34. YEAH, YOU THREW FIVE TOUCHDOWNS. [ LAUGHTER ] AND VICE VERSA. HEY, WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED LAST NIGHT? WE WON 10-7. THEY’RE LIKE YOU DIDN’T THROW ANY TOUCHDOWNS. [ LAUGHTER ] ONCE AGAIN WE’RE ON DIFFERENT PAGES HERE.>>Jimmy: IT IS INTERESTING, YEAH.>>I LIKE THE DIEHARD FANS THAT ARE GOING TO WATCH THEIR TEAM NO MATTER WHAT, THAT AREN’T GOING TO TURN THE CHANNEL IF THEIR RECEIVER ON FANTASY FOOTBALL IS NOT IN THE GAME. I LIKE THE DIEHARDS.>>Jimmy: IT IS WEIRD, GUYS CHANGING CONSTANTLY AND FOLLOWING SEVERAL GAMES. AND SOMETIMES ROOTING FOR BOTH TEAMS IN ONE GAME.>>I’M NOT FOR THAT. WE WERE PLAYING BUFFALO, MIDDLE OF MY CAREER, AND WE BEAT THEM ON THE LAST DRIVE OF THE GAME. RIGHT? SO I’M GOING INTO THE LOCKER ROOM. AND I’VE ALWAYS THROWN MY HAT AND MY SWEAT BANDS UP INTO THE CROWD. YOU FIND A ID, RIGHT? EVEN A KID WHO WAS A BUFFALO FAN, PROBABLY GOING TO WANT A SWEATBAND OR A HAT OR SOMETHING. I THREW IT TO ONE KID. OH, MY GOSH, THANKS. I THREW MY HAD ■TO AAD. I TAKE ANOTHER ONE, I THROW IT TO THIS THIS KID IN A BIG BUFFALO BILLS JERSEY. HE THROWS IT RIGHT BACK IN MY FACE. [ LAUGHTER ] AND I’M LIKE, I LIKE THAT KID.
