    What do you give your toilet bowl winner

    In my longest-tenured league (30 years) we do two things over the years.. for the TB victor, a gold (painted) toilet brush. and $50 The other, and it is more geared to the overall last place team... The team that finishes last - their team name for the next season is determined by the rest of the league.. Given the "sense of humor" of many of the league owners, it keeps folks battling to the bitter end.. LOL
  2. Not heartless at all. Depending on what the league situation you are in.. I am up a fair amount, with a lot of $$$ at stake that I NEED. Doesn't make me care any less about this gentleman and his well-being. A few grand at stake? That's anything but fake.

    MNF Discussion: Bills @ Bengals

    And that is your prerogative. But for some with a lot on the line and that could use the ducats that come along with the finals W, they are hoping of course for his complete recovery and heath, but also that the game is completed, just like employees at any other business would be expected to do. And I know many won't say it and that's ok. Doesn't make my concern for his well-being any less.

    What do we do with Fantasy Final now?

    They will play the game this week I am sure. Hamlin, surrounded by his teammates, will give the Adrian Balboa speech... Sean McDermott: Well, what are we waitin' for??
  5. Exactly... Not like it is a transatlantic flight.. So long as they are not all taking Southwest. Hope the kid is ok.. damn that was scary.

    Josh Gordon

    The struggle is real when it comes to this. Wish him nothing but the best. Lotsa talent.. lotsa demons.

    Odell Beckham

    He's laughing behind his stacks of money.
  8. I am running out of reasons to keep the guy on my roster. Hilariously, I carry two kickers, this zany league has always had inflated scoring for kickers, so Even though Butker is on a bye, and conventional wisdom would be to dump the K.... but for a guy averaging 15 points a week, I can't do it.. Incidentally that is almost twice what Sanders is scoring.. LOL And admittedly he is behind Barkley, Freeman, Hunt, Guice and Hill. But I still struggle dumping the guy... Probably that homer-ism, but I'd rather use that spot on Gallman (if Barkley is shut down) or a Goedert.. or something more beneficial. I dunno - his value just isn't there and with an eye towards the playoffs, gotta set the table. At least that is what I am telling myself.. Haha
  9. I am kinda surprised that he hasn't been signed as of yet.. Arizona (of course, they made the move for Drake, so I get that) but the Lions obviously could use the help, a return trip to Miami would make sense.. well maybe not.. lol Thinking think the knee would scare off some teams, but I still think it's odd he hasn't been offered a deal somewhere. Wonder if there is a back story, of if he is holding out for the best opportunity, deal, $$$$.. understandable of course.

    Hypothetical Situation - Clueless Owner

    Nothing irritates me more than a ignorant team owner who doesn't pay attention. Why? A myriad of reasons. One, the spirit of competition. You are in the league, pay attention and participate. That after all is the whole idea. If you aren't, why waste your time, money, as well as the time of the others in the league. Don't want to trade or make moves? Fine, but jeebus, at the very least, make sure you have a full lineup in each week. The blase owner not only affects his team, but could very well affect me. He puts in crap, or leaves bye players in and he loses to a team that is close to me in the standings, a team that he should/could beat, that would leave me livid. Hell, if you lose, let it at least be with a full team. Don't hand the stinking game away. Your TE on the bye? K? D/ST? Plug and play. It's that simple. Those 5-7 points you leave on the table might make the difference between winning and losing. This happened in a league I was in years back. I was told by one ignoramus team owner, "you just worry about your team.." I said, (resisting the urge to throw a full pint glass at his empty cranium), I am toolbag, that is why I want every team to give 100% whether you are in 1st or 11th. If your lack of team management affects me, I won't be happy. If you are going to lose, at least go down swinging. Stupidity I can stomach, at least in stupidity there is some effort.

    The Hype Train - Killing fantasy owners once again

    So what your are saying is, there is an element of risk involved? Get. Out. Where would the fun be if we all knew the ending of the movie? If we all read the last chapter? Unless you are Biff Tannen, it's a crap shoot. And that's fine by me. All that said, glad I am not in your league, since you seem to have it all figured out! Ah, I kid.. I love the unknown with this hobby. Keeps the feverish banter alive and well! As far as the hype? Most of these "experts" are laughable. I go with what I think, couldn't really care less what most have to say. If I am wrong, so be it. It happens a lot. LOL

    Kareem Hunt

    The beauty of this hobby is you never know. I had the room and drafted Hunt in two of my leagues super late. The layoff is concerning, him pulling up lame ala Herndon, working out by himself during practice , but Hunt has mad skills and I am interested to see how it shakes out. I had the luxury of stashing him - figured what the hell... why grab a dime a dozen subpar WR4 late when I could gamble and wait. If it doesn't pan out, eh.

    Drake to Giants?

    Agreed, I am taking a flier on him for the hell of it. He just makes sense IMHO. Solid veteran contributor with experience, nothing really lost aside of some $$... What the hell. Even as the SB owner in my league, I have absolutely no interest in Gallman, or any of the other RB drek on the wire.. Just trying to ride out the injury wave and stay in the mix... I don't need to finish first, just get my arse in the playoffs.

    Drake to Giants?

    CJ Anderson's phone ringing? Figured they would at least bring someone in off the street with some modicum of experience..

    AB cut by Patriots. BB has had enough!

    He's back to the 3rd option.. and Gordon is never a gimme.. could be the 2nd before you know it.. Even the 3rd option, he has obvious value. I grabbed him and dumped my flier on Gronk. That skinny-magee isn't coming back. lol
