It doesn’t pay to be a clever dick. Responding to urgings in no less a tool than this very organ, New Creation’s Robin Davis decided his design group should be a little more expansive. The consultancy set up its own fantasy football website and, without any promotion, has had 14 000 users and 50 000 hits a day.
