NFC Introduces The High Stakes Fantasy Network YouTube Channel

Post by Greg Ambrosius » Tue Jan 18, 2022 11:49 am

It's time for the best fantasy baseball and fantasy football players in the country to get their just due. It's time for the rest of the industry to learn about them and learn from them.

And we're going to do just that RIGHT NOW!!

SportsHub Games Network has launched the High Stakes Fantasy Network podcast that will be hosted on our new Fantasy High Stakes Network YouTube channel. This podcast will have three sub-heads of videos: 1) Live interviews with the best NFBC and NFFC players; 2) Live online drafts with analysis of each pick; and 3) Live event interviews and broadcasts from New York City and Las Vegas.

The first High Stakes Fantasy podcast was taped this week and features the NFBC's Philippe Dussault of Terrebonne, Quebec, who had the greatest season in high stakes history. Not just in high stakes season-long baseball history. We mean IN ALL OF HIGH STAKES SPORTS HISTORY!!!

Philippe joined Greg Ambrosius to talk about his incredible 2021 NFBC season in which he entered 22 NFBC leagues and CASHED IN EVERY ONE OF THEM. Philippe won 17 of 22 leagues, finished second in two leagues and finished third in his other league. He won the NFBC Main Event overall title, he won the NFBC Auction Championship overall title and he finished second in the Rotowire Online Championship, finishing with a record $324,000 in prize money!! He's the PERFECT guy to appear on our debut podcast.

Check it out now and make sure to give it a Like and Subscribe to this channel (it's free) to get every future podcast. Enjoy.

The big question is why haven't I been given a regular show on the channel yet? Please contact me or my agent directly. 8-)

Thanks for the positive responses everyone on our first podcast. The CHAMP was great and it even created some good discussion on Twitter about the FAAB deadline. Anyway, it was great and we'll drop another podcast on Friday.

I also look forward to broadcasting a live Online Championship or Cutline Championship draft in the next week and allow people to watch it live and maybe even chat with us live. Maybe we can debut that next Tuesday or Thursday if we can fill up a league or two next week. I'm looking forward to that as we'll have a public draft board with no owners' names, but we could have interaction from the people who join the chat and watch it on our YouTube channel.

That's the next step. And the third one is having multiple live podcasts from New York City and Las Vegas at our live events where everyone is feeling good from the free drinks and the camaraderie!! :lol:

Okay, I'm going to livestream our first NFBC online draft next Thursday, January 27th at 11 pm ET an NFBC Cutline Championship League. We're working with FTN's Vlad Sedler to promote this one in a "Beat Vlad Sedler" Cutline league. First 10 people to get in can join us for some fun next Thursday night, West Coast time for Vlad!!!

Here's the signup link:

https://nfc.shgn.com/signup/baseball?fo ... 10233,55,1

I'll use a public draft board for the livestream, so nobody will be able to see any of the owners' names. We'll analyze the first 15-20 rounds and give everyone a glimpse of how players are building their best ball teams. Should be fun. Join us for it.

A new High Stakes Fantasy podcast will drop tomorrow. Looking forward to this one.

Very nice! But you're missing a golden opportunity in not covering the Fast DC this Saturday! Hopefully you will work this into the rotation and also all the big, live high stakes events in March. A livestream of the MTM Ultimate in NYC along with Sirius XM's coverage would be awesome with an NFBC play-by-play and analysis. You should set up to livestream the MTM NFBC party in Vegas that night. Should make for some interesting interviews with a veritable Who's Who in the NFBC in attendance. :mrgreen: 8-)

And this network is really going to explode once my show premiers. When is that anyway?

I finally agree with you!!! I should cover the fast DC on Saturday, but unfortunately I'm going to be at Lambeau Field with my brother Mike and we are going to be cheering on the Packers from sunrise to sunset. It's -17 here right now (regular temp, not wind chill), but it should warm up to 21 by tomorrow and will be in the teens at kickoff. Downright balmy.

Yeah, covering the high stakes drafts should be fun. We will be smart not to give away people's picks, so we have to be smart in New York City. And I definitely want to cover fast drafts online rather than slow drafts to keep the action moving, but all is in the plans. I'm excited for the possibilities here and definitely want input and suggestions from our players.

Thanks for everything. Go Pack Go!!

We hosted our first livestream draft of the season last night with FTNFantasy.com's Vlad Sedler. Vlad and myself talked through the first 16 rounds of an NFBC Cutline Championship draft and had some fun. We'll try to do these each Thursday or Friday night going forward. Enjoy.

Our latest interview is with NFBC Charter Member Clark Olson, who has won 6 NFBC Main Event titles and has finished in the Top 15 overall in the Main Event four times. His Internet was poor (thus the fuzzy camera), but the discussion was a blast:

Funny, and all these years I thought he was a plumber. He's got that vibe about him of someone you'd walk into the kitchen on and be greeted by his ass crack under your sink. :P :lol: Looking forward to listening!

Okay, after a brief hiatus due to the MLB lockout and the crazy 28 days of drafts that proceeded the new CBA, I am back with another live interview on our High Stakes Fantasy Network YouTube Channel.

It takes place today at 4 pm ET with the one and only NFBC Hall of Famer Lindy Hinkelman. We'll air the interview live starting at 4 pm ET on our YouTube channel and on my Twitter feed. Subscribe to our YouTube channel and you'll get an alert when we go live. As long as we can get Lindy to work that pesky laptop with a camera and microphone, we should be fine!! :lol: Can't wait for the discussion.

See you there.

I forgot to post this last week, but if you're interested in the Chad Schroeder interview, check it out here:

https://youtu.be/tEAAYs-CZ4I

Chad is one of the very best high-stakes players in the industry and he's an NFFC Hall of Famer with over $1.4 million in football winnings and he's still third on the NFBC Career Earnings List despite not competing in baseball since 2015. He won over $500,000 in five seasons of NFBC action, so check out his thoughts on my one-on-one interview with him. Enjoy.
