Beckham, Badger: Brits Gone Bad

LOS ANGELES (October 1, 2009)--The world of Fantasy Football was rocked by scandal this week when an anonymous tipster contacted FFL officials regarding Team Badger, which recently relocated its home office from England to Los Angeles. Although British soccer personalities have traditionally been granted a warm reception by the American public, the Beckham family is proof that support can turn on a dime. Now that it appears Team Badger is in blatant violation of FFL bylaws (which dictate that no more than three players from the same real-life team can play on a single FFL team), the team's standing in America is in serious jeopardy.

Sales of Team Badger t-shirts have plummeted, and Tuesday night's crowd at the Rose Bowl was blanketed with signs showing a cartoon badger crossed out and replaced with a skunk. "Go back to England Beckham and Badger" read one banner, while another declared "You're all dirty cheats--P.S. You talk funny."

Team Do-Ho put out a statement that the organization is "shocked and saddened" by the improprieties.

Former Badger singing partner Miley Cyrus tweeted, "I feel like Taylor Swift being blindsided by Kanye West."

While President Obama called for tolerance, a viral video was widely circulated showing the Commander-in-Chief shaking his head and muttering, "What a jackass."
