DubPoints LIVE set to usher in new era for the game

John Wyatt Edgar has continually fluctuated how DubPoints will work going forward, but the one certainty is that there will be a weekly LIVE video webcast on Facebook.
John Wyatt Edgar has continually fluctuated how DubPoints will work going forward, but the one certainty is that there will be a weekly LIVE video webcast on Facebook.

While the state of DubPoints has been up in the air for a number of months now, it appears that consistent change will finally come in the form of DubPoints LIVE, a weekly video webcast that will be previewing, recapping, and analyzing all things contest-related going forward.

The debut episode, which will feature special guest co-host Joe Patterson alongside DubPoints Commissioner John Wyatt Edgar, is scheduled for tomorrow night at 8PM EST (Thursday, September 1) on the DubPoints Facebook page.

Several big announcements are expected to be made, including the state of Charles Wilfong’s DubPoints World Championship reign, the introduction of several new specialty¬†championships, and some in-depth analysis on the first-ever DubPoints Fantasy Football League, which is set to begin its draft on Monday.

As someone with no experience in the DubPoints universe, Mr. Patterson is an interesting choice as the first-ever guest co-host, and should at the very least have some interesting opinions on the contest’s personalities and the new directions that Mr. Edgar is willing to take the brand.

It should, at the very least, be entertaining, and will serve as an exclusive first-look at news and announcements that have not yet been made public on the site, so be sure to check in!

DubPoints launches Fantasy Sports division this football season

The “Fantasy Sports Championship” will have a real belt, obviously much better looking than this placeholder image.

MARTINS FERRY, OH — DubPoints Commissioner John Wyatt Edgar announced today on his Facebook page that there will be a new “Fantasy Sports” division to DubPoints, and that he will be creating a championship belt to be defended in various seasonal sports leagues, hosted through Yahoo Fantasy Sports.

The first-ever season of this new division will take place during the 2016 season of Fantasy Football, with the league winner being awarded the inaugural champion and taking home the brand-new, yet-to-be-revealed belt.

“This is an exciting time for DubPoints as we start to think outside the box of what the brand entails,” said Commissioner Edgar. “We want DubPoints to have a little something for everybody, and we already have a wide crossover audience in the fantasy sports realm due to our relationship with the RFFL (Real Fantasy Football League). We hope that we can attract some new competitors to the product who maybe aren’t interested in playing the ‘classic’ format we’ve been pushing for so long… so let’s give them a chance to excel in something that they already may do for fun.”

The current plan is to augment the fantasy football league with a fantasy hockey and fantasy baseball league in 2017, meaning that the title will be played for exclusively during the playoff months of December, April, and August. The diversity in types of sporting events also ensures an even more varied pool of potential talent.

“There’s a lot of big things coming to DubPoints, for both old and new fans alike,” Edgar iterated. “This is just the first step in what should be a very exciting journey over the next few months.”

Interestingly enough, this championship will be the first since Ohio Valley Gang Wars that the commissioner will also be eligible to compete in. The final DubPoints World Champion, Charles Wilfong, has confirmed entry into the league, as well as Nicholas Griffin and Jeff Fetty as of press time.

The online draft for the league will take place Monday, September 5, at 8PM EST. Full results will be available on the league page as well as here on dubpoints.com.
