An individual who on numerous occasions boasts how terrific he is in various life activities, but fails miserably to achieve results and then runs away and crawls into a hole never to take his medicine for his complete lack of life skills.

He taunts other people at drafts and calls his fantasy sports teams something to mock another person like "MY WIFE DRAFTED FOR ME", but he himself embodies loneliness and fails at not just fantasy sports but at life in general and hides away for months, only to resurface and begin his cycle of cowardice all over again, each summer.
Peter said that he would bury you this week in Fantasy Football, but he lost and simply disappeared from the message board. What a damn coward!

Refers to individuals that pursue predictable life paths of primary education followed by college / university and relatively secure, full-time employment in established companies.

Such individuals may occasionally perform some sort of community service but spend most of their spare time engaging in popularized social activities like watching mainstream sports, movies, patronizing membership gyms, shopping, visiting popular pubs and restaurants, and travelling to commonly visited tourist destinations. Such individuals generally only interact with people with similar backgrounds.

Opposites of cowards include non-traditional artists and musicians, certain entrepreneurs, non-mainstream political activists, Peace Corps volunteers, and others who take riskier, more creative, or less predictable paths in life.
