    "Funny business" on WW Finals Week ..

    I recall a post many many years ago with the comment that still makes me chuckle: "Who cheats in a free league??"

    "Funny business" on WW Finals Week ..

    Being in leagues where people know each other is of no issue. I have been in two leagues, one upwards of 22 years and we've all known each other for probably twice that long, if not more. NO such crap would have taken place in either - not by a long shot. People have been found life-less on the roadside for less.. just sayin. Find another league.

    KC signed Kelvin Benjamin

    I had an open spot, so I nabbed him. Given all the other midland talent left out there, seemed like a decent gamble, that if it pays off, wonderful. If not, no great shakes.

    Bills cut Kelvin

    Funny, when it is announced that the Saints bring Kelvin on board, the peeps will run scrambling to grab him... Certainly not out of the realm of possibility, him landing on a team with some firepower... An interesting spot would be back in Tampa with his ol' compadre slinging the ball his way. I'm stashing him, just for the helluvit. With Green done, I have empty bench room.
  5. Not that he has set the world on fire.. but at least he's stayed relatively healthy.. A joy watching Sanchez "sling" the ball at his receiver's shoe laces. I am only hoping that at least he leans on Reed and sends multiple targets his way.. a few have to be catchable.. lol

    Why "experts" do this?

    Take "experts" with a true grain of Grade-A BS. Years back, I thought these guys were just that, "experts". Until I started writing for sites and quickly realized that at the end of the day, we were all folks with opinions, with a forum to spout them. Did I feel like I knew my stuff? Sure. Many of these decisions are pure common sense. Don't over-think. You drafted guy relatively high, START HIM. Of course, there are always exceptions - hell, last season I grabbed Kamara off the waiver wire and he helped carry me to a championship with both him and Ingram... most weeks playing them both... This season the guy was a top 4-5 overall pick. But last year, who knew? But so much of this is opinion, subjective, and at the end of the day, not worth a whole lot. You know what Dirty Harry said about opinions.. You post "Start 'Em's" and Oddly enough, come Sunday night, many of them should have been "Sit Em's". The guy you exclaimed should be left on the bench? Blew up on your bench no doubt. Ah the fantasy pundits. I was always of the school of thought, and I know it is Old School, but you "start your studs".. Players are viewed as such not because they play well against sub-par opponents, but because they do so against most if not all opponents. Now with the influx of flex positions, decisions are widened. Choices are plentiful, but that is maddening in itself. 8 spots - 8 quality performers - call it a day. But now it is a chess match and the chess pieces are akin to mental manhole covers. Rosters are huge, talent pools are thin, and the decision making all the more ridiculous, because you are weighing one marginal talent against another marginal talent. I keep up on news regarding injuries, dabble in some common sense and make up my own mind... but reading multiple articles, getting burdened with opinions... ugh who needs it? I'd rather kibitz with you fine folks!!

    Graham - out 4-6 weeks

    Ugh... Graham was maddening marginal with all 10 digits healthy - can't see a splint on his thumb helping his production in a positive way. It'll be like trying to catch with a paint stirrer taped to your hand. Haha

    Who the hell is Gus Edwards

    Ah, Mr. and Mrs. Edwards son.

    Brandon Marshall to the Saints

    That's saying something especially since they spend a lot of time in the red zone.

    League Issue

    Paying the next year fee is a nice thought, but again, if he is leaving.. let the new owner pay the fee and steer the ship of the team. Not be left not paying for the crap the previous owner left behind. Gee, thanks pal. If you are leaving, be competitive, start a solid team every week and put a lid on the general manager activities. Punch him in the face in front of his family. Then veto this silliness. It's a win/win.

    Golden Tate traded to PHI

    Jeffery will likely benefit - Tate is another attention-grabber for sure. Ahholor? Moves back a step - he is not having the same success as last season - maybe it'll help him in the long run - and Matthews? Bah. It was a nice story to have him back in the mix, but his best days are a county mile behind him.

    How did FF leagues work before the internet?

    I am getting misty with nostalgia here. Yep, we also cleared the scores with that week's opponent and called it in to the commish..
