Football Diehards Staff Bob Harris
Our staff is led by Senior Editor Bob Harris. Bob is one of the original Fantasy Football Diehards, starting the TFLReport in 1993. He received one of the highest honors in the industry, the "Writer of the Year" award, from the Fantasy Sports Writers Association (fswa.org) in 2005. He is informative and funny -- not a bad combination!
Football Diehards Staff Mike Beacom
Mike Beacom is the director of sales for Fantasy Sports Publications. His written work has been featured in FSP magazines since 2003, and he now writes a regular column for FootballDiehards.com. Beacom also serves as the president and chairman of the Fantasy Sports Writers Association.

John Laub, the man previously behind the highly respected Audibles Web site and information service, has won more than $10,000 in national Fantasy contests. Now his focus is on providing weekly regular-season rankings to FootballDiehards.com FlashUpdate readers. Laub might not be infallible, but we'll put his career-track record up against anybody you'd care to name (we've also told him "no more tuxes").

FSP (fspnet.com) has been in business for over 22 years and this year will distribute over 850,000 copies of four Fantasy Football magazines -- the CheatSheets, Pro Forecast, DraftBook and Football Diehards Magazine -- and is the company responsible for FootballDiehards.com.
