GLENN COLTON

Inducted in 2013

 

Glenn has been playing Fantasy Sports for a very long time, and dived into the industry at LABR (League of Alternative Baseball Reality) in 2002. He is a legal advocate, business advocate, writer, radio-host, expert fantasy player and has been volunteering his time at EVERY FSTA Conference since 2003 to give advice to everyone who attends and especially advising the ENTIRE industry in times of trouble.

CBC v MLBAM– The Watershed Moment in Fantasy Sports

Glenn’s work, passion and advice to the industry in regards to the players’ association make him a compelling candidate for the Hall of Fame. Charlie Wiegert and his partners at CDM were true heroes to take on MLBAM to fight for our industry. Glenn had previous to that, set the tone for how to deal with the players’ associations. Glenn supported CDM and advised the FSTA membership throughout the process including print, radio and TV interviews that positioned our industry as the "good guys.” He preached partnership not confrontation and ALWAYS spoke to anyone who wanted to understand or get advice on how to handle the Player’s Association’s aggression. He was the industry’s voice of reason.

On Glenn’s advice, the FSTA filed an Amicus Brief, a legal document as a friend of the court to make sure the court understood that a ruling affected our members. Glenn created this brief and SUCCESSFULLY introduced the First Amendment which led the final ruling summary and made the decision have influence federally, thereby stopping the PA’s aggression and eliminating more lawsuits in the fantasy sports industry.

Fantasy Sports Expert, Personality and Journalist

In 2002, Glenn began competing in LABR and writing for Rotoworld.com. In 2003, he wrote the first Rotoworld Fantasy Football magazine with publisher Matthew Berry and Rick Wolf. He has written for Rotoworld and other publications / websites ever since.

Last April, Glenn began co-hosting a radio show on Sirius XM Fantasy Sports Radio. From the first day, he was a natural on the air and continued his work of crisp analysis and strategy to help fantasy players win championships.

In summary, Glenn was a catalyst for the Fantasy Sports industry’s success in the fight with the players’ associations, a brilliant lawyer who gives that expertise to everyone in the fantasy industry and an accomplished journalist, radio host and an expert fantasy player.
