KIRKLAND, Wash. -- Seattle Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren says he doesn't know much about fantasy football leagues, now a national obsession and booming industry.

It's not too late! Leagues are forming and drafting until Sep. 20, with scoring retroactive to Week 1.

But Calla, one of his four daughters, does.

"My daughter, who's a doctor in Salt Lake City, she captained one of the fantasy teams and then was thrown out of the league because of 'inside information.' But I will say, she was clean," the 60-year-old Holmgren said, chuckling. "It was the appearance.

"She did not phone me about it. And she was very upset about it. But she knows football, as all my girls do."
