Fantasy football loser subjected to public punishment

BELINGHAM, Wash. – A college student is enduring public humiliation after finishing last in his fantasy football league this year.

As if it’s not bad enough to finish last, 19-year-old Mitchell Scott was forced to stand at a busy Bellingham intersection for 30 minutes on Saturday.

He carried a large sign that said “loser.”

The Bellingham Herald reports a handful of other participants in his fantasy football league cheerfully watched from the sidewalk as cars honked when they drove by.

League commissioner Chad Castro says this was just introduced to the league this year, but they like it.

They’re looking to set it up as a tradition for years to come.

Scott says he’s already plotting for next season and dreaming of what sorts of props and outfits may be involved in the punishment of next season’s loser.

He just hopes it’s not him.
