When I was in 5th grade, my teacher asked me what I wanted to do when I grew up. I said that I'd like to be retired. She suggested that I have a backup plan, so I said fantasy football commissioner. For some reason, nobody ever asked me about my career plans again...
Being the fantasy football commissioner is a dream job. You get to make the rules, enforce them, mediate disputes, organize the draft, and bask in the glory of a job well done while earning an incredible salary at the same time!
OK - maybe not...
Let's face it. Being the commish is never all that it's cracked up to be. In fact, it's often a thankless job, but it's also crucial to a really good league. Whether you are the commish or you simply want to do a solid for your league's commissioner, check out the special tools on FFN just for your league's version of Roger Goodell.
