Fantasy football player AJ Dillon tells his league penalty

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon

One of the best aspects of fantasy football is the ability to enjoy your friends and family. Obviously, the only person who can’t be happy is the one who takes last place. Because of this, most leagues have last place penalties, something designed to embarrass the worst player in the league this year.

The key is to come up with something that’s either quick and humiliating, or time-consuming and entertaining for the rest of the league. This is what makes the classic “Eat Geisterpfeffer” or “Waffelhaus 24-hour challenge” so remarkable. They’re fun, easy, and nobody gets hurt. You definitely don’t want to force one of your friends to do something that will change their life. trust me i know. I was once in a league where, as punishment, someone recommended going to a sperm bank, donating a sample, and checking the box that says, “The child can contact you when they turn 18.” Needless to say, all hitting the ground with our jaws and we didn’t choose that punishment.

Not even that compares to the punishment AJ Dillon suffered while playing Escape from Tarkov on his Twitch channel.

Yes, AJ Dillon met a fantasy football player who is currently bottom of his fantasy league. At this rate, he’s only four weeks away from enlisting in the military. It’s the most brutal punishment I’ve ever heard. I understand that some dream of joining the military, but that’s obviously not the case with these gentlemen, otherwise it wouldn’t be a punishment. It would be the price of winning the league.

The mystery man never says whether or not he had Dillon on his team, but you have to imagine that the only reason they even discussed fantasy football was because Dillon was on his roster. If that’s the case, which seems likely, imagine the toll such a revelation will have on the remainder of Dillon’s season. He now knows that the way you play can make the difference between being forced into military service or not. Dillon will likely rush for 100 yards and a touchdown every week for the rest of the season.

For such a harsh penalty, I really hope this guy didn’t have to pay a league buy-in. Imagine spending $25 just to get enlisted in the army. Now you can do that for free! The implications this punishment brings to the table are so insane I don’t even want to think about it. I really hope Dillon plays well for the rest of the year… for this man’s sake. Also, I have Dillon in one of my leagues, and I don’t want to finish last either.
