    Evangelicals turning on Trump

    It didn't all start in mid-2016 for millions upon millions of people in the US. It started in 2009 and has continued from that day forward. Trump's election was only a surprise to those who were ignorant of what was going on below the surface from 2009-2016. Conservative Americans felt trampled on during that period as did many Rural Americans and certainly Christian Americans. The "this whole mess started in 2016" thing comes only from a left perspective. For those to the right of center on the political spectrum, 2016 was more of when the volcano erupted than when it became active. Trump's election was a reaction to what happened the eight years prior.

    Evangelicals turning on Trump

    I hope I can see the world as you do again in the near future. 2009-2016 was rough and it shaped a lot of my thinking about the left's agenda to reduce conservatives to rubble. It would take a lot for any trust in that side of the aisle to be restored. Thank, you though, for trying to respond in a way that throws some logic into the equation. Totally distrusting half of my own government is not a joyous place to be. I'm not a Republican anyway at this point- I'm just an anti-Democrat.

    Evangelicals turning on Trump

    Sort of, yeah. I basically believe many on the left and their powerful partners in media, Hollywood, academia, and big tech want to destroy people like me and eliminate me from the American equation. Trump got in the way of that for four years.

    For most Christians that I know, Trump did not represent Christianity. His popularity rested in the fact that he stood in the gap and took all the bullets that conservative evangelicals would typically take. He did the same for Conservatives. For rural Americans. I don't appreciate or admire Donald Trump the man. I very simply and honestly appreciate that he stood up for four years and took the gunfire from all sides. As a rural, conservative, Christian male, Biden's election means I'm back in the line of fire again. That's why many Americans can dislike Trump and still appreciate what he did in office simultaneously.

    Looking Ahead to Redrafts 2021: First Four Rounds

    You're right. Some WR in Dallas probably will be. It's just hard to know which one.

    Looking Ahead to Redrafts 2021: First Four Rounds

    I've never known a football player that wasn't human. And as such, Derrick Henry is human. Granted, his response to massive workloads two years in a row is impressive, but there are no immortals playing football in the NFL. As such, I like him top-5, but not top-3. Any argument that puts him at the top of rankings, though, would be valid based on recent track record.

    Edex Cup VI - 2021 Schedule

    In for 2021...
  8. This is something I like to post on site in early January and then update it every few weeks for a couple of months. The first edition assumes minimal team changes for the following players (which isn't realistic) and does not include potential rookies. This is just a glimpse of what a redraft (non-PPR) might look like for 2021 based upon what is known today. It is meant to generate some discussion, so feel free to disagree and/or offer up alternative choices. QBs are also valued a little higher by me based on some of the scoring systems I play being QB-friendly. Round One: 1. Dalvin Cook 2. Christian McCaffrey 3. Alvin Kamara 4. Derrick Henry 5. Davante Adams 6. Nick Chubb 7. Aaron Jones 8. Tyreek Hill 9. Saquon Barkley 10. Jonathan Taylor 11. Travis Kelce 12. D.K. Metcalf  Round Two: 13. Josh Jacobs 14. Patrick Mahomes 15. Stefon Diggs 16. Ezekiel Elliott 17. Calvin Ridley 18. Josh Allen 19. David Montgomery 20. James Robinson 21. DeAndre Hopkins 22. A.J. Brown 23. J.K. Dobbins 24. Darren Waller Round Three: 25. Miles Sanders 26. Justin Jefferson 27. Clyde Edwards-Helaire 28. George Kittle 29. Antonio Gibson 30. Michael Thomas 31. Keenan Allen 32. D'Andre Swift 33. DeShaun Watson 34. Mike Evans 35. Melvin Gordon 36. Allen Robinson Round Four: 37. Austin Ekeler 38. Joe Mixon 39. Kyler Murray 40. Adam Thielen 41. Ronald Jones 42. Julio Jones 43. Chris Carson 44. Aaron Rodgers 45. Robert Woods 46. Kenyan Drake 47. Mark Andrews 48. Tyler Lockett Thoughts??

  14. For those not familiar, the main fantasy football boards on the internet put together 12-man teams that compete for the Interboard title. Our team at FFToday this season and for a long time now in most cases consists of Dan, White Wonder, Stewburtx8, Vikings4Ever, RCS Steeler, Cuse9, Matt Mueller, Lambert58, Giraldi02, Nic Dolas, Me2020, and myself (Fumbleweed). Currently, we have a narrow lead in the battle for website/board supremacy over Footballguys.com and Fantasy Sharks. Will try to keep the board here informed as to how it turns out. I think we have won the title 3 or 4 times over the past twenty years, but I'm not 100% sure of the exact number. There are seven websites with teams in the league this season. Usually, there are 8.
