With no NFL team to call his own (sorry Bills in Toronto series), Raju became a fan of the entire NFL and follows every team with excitement, including disasters like the Oakland Raiders.

Growing up in a city with a team in every major sport but the NFL, it took Madden video games to teach him enough about the NFL to understand what was happening on the field.

Raju discovered his passion for football through fantasy sports but really fell in love due to the excitement and extra commitment level needed to win his dynasty leagues.
