Fantasy football can be a fun hobby and a way for fans to immerse themselves in the sport, but as certain players have pointed out, some fantasy owners take their passion a bit too far.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Braylon Edwards felt the wrath of a dismayed fantasy football owner Monday during a visit to the hospital. Edwards missed Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions with a swollen knee, and apparently one hospital security guard didn't have time to take Edwards out of his lineup. So when he saw Edwards at the hospital, he gave him some grief for not playing.

Edwards wasn't too happy to hear from this guy, and understandably so.

We saw something similar happen a few weeks ago, when a replacement referee chided LeSean McCoy for his performance.

Little did the ref and the hospital security guard know, these guys are more than robots who score points every Sunday, they are living, breathing human beings. And they should be treated as such.

(H/T to Game On!)

Joe Buck is known for being the No. 1 play-by-play man for Fox Sports' coverage of the NFL and MLB -- sometimes doing both on the same day.

Buck is also a fantasy football player with entries in two leagues. One is with work colleagues.

"We call it the A-crew, so it's [Troy] Aikman, our producers, directors, guys working the cameras," Buck said. "Pam Oliver is in our league. And then I'm in one with friends. Guys and girls that I know from all parts of the globe. It's funny because I'm awful at it. I've done it I think four years now and I have never gotten into the playoffs. I'm awful at picking fantasy teams."

It might not come across on the air, but there may be times when the game he is calling will have an impact on his fantasy success (or failure).

"With our games, there was a time earlier in the season three years ago where Aikman and I were neck-and-neck in our little division, and we were doing, I think, Vikings-Patriots," Buck said. "He had [Randy] Moss or [Tom] Brady and I had Adrian Peterson. So we're calling the game and I'm living and dying with what my guys are doing because the last thing Aikman wants to do is lose. He hates losing. And the best thing I can do is beat him at that."

What happened?

"I think I lost because that's typical," Buck said. "Aikman wins at everything."
