      Reading Shandler’s farewell letter got me to thinking about something: do the guys who founded roto still actually play roto? Turns out the answer is mostly no. Below is a link from a Wall Street Journal article that talks about the demise of their league.

      So that got me to wondering: are we are aware of any roto leagues that have been continuously in existence as long as USML? I suspect there are a few, but I have not researched it…all answers welcome.

      I’ve heard anecdotal tales of a few ongoing leagues from the late 80s, but nothing I can immediately confirm. Like our league, the other long-running leagues I’ve heard about are comprised of over-educated dudes, but mainly from the east coast. Pretty cool that we’re still chugging along……….
