FAN Take is a series that highlights trending events, issues, and decisions in the world of sports and analyzes how they may or may not factor into the Fan Controlled Football League. We would love to hear your feedback, so let us know what you think about each FAN Take!
Leave it to Nike to swoop in and hit people in the feels this morning with the release of their newest ad. With images of athletes – famous, not famous, young, and old – set to an orchestral arrangement you typically hear during a major turning point in a movie, we’re reminded that we’re not alone in this. There’s one powerful line of text that appears in the ad that we can’t get out of our heads: “We may not be playing together, but we’ll keep moving forward – all 7.8 billion of us.” If that doesn’t give you some kind of sense of hope or inspiration, we don’t know what will.
Tell us fans, how are you “playing at home”? Are you devoting some time to Madden, to really keep your play-calling skills up to date ahead of our inaugural season? Are you spending time focusing on training at home, with hopes of making one of the eight FCFL teams? Or perhaps you’re working on your dance moves, just in case you get selected as a cheerleader for one of our teams. Whatever it is you’re doing, let us know! Who knows, you might inspire us to find a new way to spend some of our free time!
