A 2009 FX sitcom about a [[VitriolicBestBuds group of friends]] who all play in a fantasy football league. It's cut from a similar cloth as the show it airs after, ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia''--frequently [[CrossesTheLineTwice Crossing the Line Twice]] and [[RefugeInAudacity taking Refuge in Audacity]]--but a little better-adjusted (maybe you can think of it as ''[[Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia Always Sunny]]'' [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs on meds]]. [[TheWindyCity In Chicago]], [[{{Metaphorgotten}} With football]]).

** Episodes following Rafi and Dirty Randy became a once-a-season feature after that point, with their final adventure being so bizarre it's actually ''animated''.

* WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs: Taco has a different "job" almost every episode.
** Most of them revolve around some comically bad business idea or invention.
*** One of those ideas, "Neckflix," or "Netflix for Ties" becomes {{Life Imitates Art}} when the same concept was advertised as "Tietry" on Series/{{Shark Tank}}.

Added DiffLines:

* ComicallyMissingthePoint: Taco, constantly, to the point where the rest of the gang don't even bother correcting him on his misconceptions but just roll with it.
** When the gang show off new versions of the Shiva trophy to Andre that openly mock him, Andre says "it's almost like you're making fun of me" and the group exchange stunned glances that Andre doesn't get that's the point of all this.

* WithFriendsLikeThese - Even without the constant volleys of insults and pranks, every single member of the League will manipulate and betray any other member for even the slightest of advantages in their fantasy football tournament. Except for Taco, who is to stoned to know what manipulate means.

Added DiffLines:

* InformedJudaism: Ruxin mentions being Jewish in the first episode, describing himself as looking like a Nazi cartoon of a Jew. However he is not practicing, and in fact is married to a Catholic and Baby Geoffrey was baptized (he told his mother it was a really progressive synagogue). In one episode he celebrates Sukkot in order to get his son into a prestigious Jewish preschool. In another episode, Ruxin and his wife get in an argument over what religion to raise Baby Geoffrey in. Averted with Ruxin's sister, who is mentioned to be Orthodox. This trope is even more true with Ted, who is only known to be Jewish because a rabbi was at his [[spoiler: funeral]].
