idobi and Rock The Walls are very happy to exclusively bring you the first of many guest articles we will have: bands writing/talking about Sports. Currently out on the Crush’em All Tour, After The Burial and Veil of Maya will bring you “Far Beyond Football” weekly throughout the NFL season. Here is the Week 4 write-up with a intro and picks from Justin Lowe and Brandon Butler.
-Patrick Walford

Welcome to our first of many weekly installments of FAR BEYOND FOOTBALL.  Aside from our busy touring lives, we love to spend our time playing Fantasy Football.  This blog will be written by both Brandon Butler (Vocalist of VEIL OF MAYA) and myself Justin Lowe (Guitarist for AFTER THE BURIAL).  Each week, you can expect us to give you our best insight into our choices for the best strategic plays, “Trust Your Gut” section which will feature each of our instinctive and intuitive selections, and some helpful waiver wire pickups in really deep leagues.  We’re very happy to have an opportunity to share with you what we spend most of our touring lives doing behind the scenes.

To kick it off, we’re going to do a quick run-through of our top starters this week, along with who we think should be left on your bench.  As each week progresses, we’ll be going far more in-depth with explanations and analysis.
