I don't play fantasy football, but I do know that Yahoo! is the best site for it — which is probably why they had over 4.4 million users last year. Too bad they didn't ask Dreamboat if they could use his handsome, handsome image in their ad campaign:

In the lawsuit, which was filed in U.S. District Court by a Brady management company, the three-time Super Bowl champion notes that fantasy football is a $4 billion industry… Brady alleges that Yahoo!'s use of his image connotes a false endorsement and, as such, is seeking unspecified punitive and compensatory damages against the company.

You know why the damages are unspecified? Because you can't put a price on Dreamboat's image. Yahoo!'s going to be sued for infinity dollars, the last unicorn, a gallon of water from the Fountain of Youth, and all the undiscovered planets in the universe. They're fucked.

Yahoo! should have used Peyton Manning's image instead. Give that guy a sandwich and a tire hanging from a tree branch, and he'll do an ad for you. Instead they have to face Brady in a clutch lawsuit. I repeat: they're fucked.
