I'm here to show you around the floor. You can access the trading floor as a guest right now, or keep reading to get a better idea of what's going on here. It all started when the Bosses got burned during a little incident called Black Tuesday in 1929. They didn't like losing all their capital gains on their ill-gotten gains. Ever since then, they've been developing ways to invest their money in a place where they can exercise more control. So they created the Major League Market's Football Floor.
What is it? It's a stock exchange that deals strictly in securities on NFL teams and players. The Market runs 24 hours a day, from pre-season all the way through the playoffs. At the end of the season, each stock is redeemed for cash according to player or team performance. But throughout the season, only demand will drive prices up and down. You buy when you want, sell when you want. That's how savvy traders make all that money.
Unlike fantasy football, you can invest in players and teams. In fact, there's so many guys around here trying to make a deal on the side, you can run your portfolio any way you like. Jimmy the Stick, he's got a whole portfolio full of quarterbacks. Jimmy knows quarterbacks; he can read the win or loss in their eyes before the game starts. Guys like Marty like to use their calculator and when the stock is just right, they pounce. We don't always understand that moof and his technical psychobabble, but he makes money, so we don't laugh too hard. Some traders, like Angus, are strictly team-dealing guys. Buys teams he thinks are going up, shorts teams he thinks will choke.
You may be wondering why I'm telling you all this. The Bosses have decided to open their exchange on the internet to anyone who wants to trade. They figure it's more money for the taking. It takes guts and luck to beat the Bosses at their own game, but if you think you can do it, you're welcome to try.
