For year fans of football, baseball and hockey have enjoyed their sport both on television and through fantasy sports leagues. Now professional rodeo can be added to the list with the latest online sports league fantasyrodeochallenge.com. As active participants in other fantasy sports, the founders of Fantasy Rodeo Challenge saw the tremendous popularity and benefits of these games. Online games have helped increase the popularity of other sports and their athletes and the founders of Fantasy Rodeo Challenge.com are hoping the latest online game will do the same for the sport of professional rodeo.
In recent years television coverage of professional rodeo has skyrocketed to all time highs. The growing popularity of the oldest extreme sport has brought many new fans to the sport of rodeo. Many of these new fans have become accustomed to participating in online fantasy leagues of other sports. Fantasy Rodeo Challenge.com now offers rodeo fans a chance to test their skills in selecting online fantasy rodeo teams.
Fans of professional rodeo can log onto fantasyrodeochallenge.com to play in interactive games in which they build rodeo teams to compete at selected professional rodeo events such as the upcoming Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Team owners are given a salary cap in which they may purchase qualified rodeo contestants to fill their team. The rodeo contestants are valued based on their ranking going into the event (i.e. first place contestant being the most expensive and the last place contestant being the least expensive). Once the team is selected, the team owner will guess the teamÂs total earnings at the selected rodeo event to break any possible ties. Fantasy Rodeo Challenge participants will use their skills and knowledge of rodeo contestants to select the best team while staying under the allotted salary cap. Fantasy Rodeo Challenge contestants can select and play three different types of teams; all-event team, rough stock only team or timed event only team.
Fantasy Rodeo Challenge plans to use the success of the upcoming 2004 Wrangler National Finals to develop a full season long contest in 2005 to provide rodeo fans the opportunity to become more involved in the sport of rodeo through this interactive rodeo experience.
