TrenchFantasy.com Kicks Off Online Public Play Against Football Legends
Compete Head-to-Head Against NFL Hall of Famer and Trench Fantasy Ambassador Ronnie Lott this Weekend
Seattle ⎯October 22, 2009⎯Trenches Inc. (www.trenchfantasy.com) of Seattle today announced their team of Trench Fantasy Ambassadors will be playing head-to-head with fantasy team owners in their public play league. Trench Fantasy players can match their football knowledge against a different member of the Trench Fantasy Ambassador Team each week in the free Trench Fantasy “Public League.” The schedule begins with fantasy players facing off against Ronnie Lott this weekend. Users can register and play for free at TrenchFantasy.com.
“This is the chance for real football fans to go head to head with some of the most tenacious competitors in NFL history,” said Eric Koivisto, Trench Fantasy’s CEO. “Imagine seeing how your defensive secondary matches up against Ronnie Lott’s choice or if your starting offensive line can contain John Randle, this head to head fantasy experience is only available at TrenchFantasy.”
Traditional fantasy leagues focus mainly on the positions of quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers and their individual touchdowns; Trench Fantasy opens up fantasy to include the rest of the players on the field, while not worrying about scoring for the glamour positions.

• Richard Dent – Dominating defensive end for the Chicago Bears, Super Bowl XX Champion and MVP, 137.5 career sacks, and four-time Pro Bowler;
