I debated hard on at my 3.09 pick whether to take WR Brandon Coleman (a coveted player for me and somewhat sleeper and tandem to my 1.03 Cooks pick) or take a needed QB for depth. Need ruled out and I went with QB Savage as a potential starter as early as late this season or perhaps next season.
Coleman was key though....He's the guy I wanted. Yet, I reasoned that if I didn't get Coleman.....another QB and WR I wanted were still out there and they would be consolation prizes I could live with.
I figured...oh well, I'll take the chance he'll fall to 3.14, my next pick.
3.10 Rhinos picks RB Storm Johnson.
3.11 Monkey picks RB Marion Grice
3.12 Phantom picks WR John Brown
3.13 Vanquish picks WR Shaq Evans
PERFECT. Not one of my circled picks went there. It was beautiful. Freakin Aye!!!!!!
Then something happened. As I was about to take my guy Coleman and complete my perfect draft.....Dave (Jaws't Win) jumps online......immediately chatting that he's up for trading some "late or future late picks for any of the next few picks.......
So my mind wandered. And I wavered off my "plan". I shot him a private chat comment about garnering his next pick plus my 4th and 5th rounders back for 2015.
I surmised that if I trade my pick, I could get his next pick this draft (4.05, just 8 picks later) and garner my late picks for next year. I rationalized that if I did this, my earlier trade with Jaws on moving up to the 1.03 pick (Cooks) would essentially just cost me a 2nd rounder next year and $8 DAD bucks. Pretty good deal, no?
I wasn't really thinking thru it though, because Dave had also made a private comment that he couldn't possibly use all of next year's picks....but I was already hooked on my idea. I probably could have gotten those picks without selling mine.
So I did the deal. After all, I still had my eye on 3 players. What are the chances they would all go in the next 8 picks???
3.14 JAWS picks QB Mettenberger.....no worries, that wasn't my target QB.
3.15 Berlin picks WR Norwood......nope, not either of my WR's.
3.16 Mud picks RB Taliaferro.....freakin awesome.
I've got 5 picks ahead of me....and 3 guys I would take, including my man WR Coleman are still there. And Monkey's picks have been off my radar for 3 days....I wasn't really worried about him.
Ever just know things aren't going to work out in a "moment"??????
4.01.....Casino drafts WR Huff......ouch. But no worries. He was my #2 of the 3 players.
4.02.....Vesper drafts QB Thomas....ouch......but it made sense, because he's got an aging Palmer on his roster about to retire. He was my #3 guy.
And then I text DieNasty (befitting name now) on whether he would "sell" that pick. But I had spent most of Monkey's DAD$ he gave me from trading my 1.08 pick who he later traded to Brentastic to move up to earlier 2nd and 3rd round picks.
I was worried, but I reasoned......really scoop, what are the chances Gamebreaker will take your guy????
I could almost hear his voice as time was running out when he texted "going, going...."
Even then, Gamebreaker still gave me a last shot to pull the trigger on a trade.... asking "Should I go ahead and pick?"
I balked....and alas, I just told him to pick away.
And the rest is history.....
Moral of the story.....TAKE YOUR GUY IF HE'S THERE AND YOU'RE UP!
****** My apologies for the long read.

Adrian Peterson was raised this way. He got "switched" growing up so he was conditioned to think this was the norm, regardless of what YOU think. It does appear to be excessive in that it broke the skin, but he has acknowledged this. He has shown remorse for his actions prior to media coverage. Yet we want to crucify him because it's in the spotlight. I bet everyone with an opinion on this matter has something they swept under the rug. It's just that no one gives a sh*t. I don't agree with his method of discipline but I'm not going to tell him how to raise his children.
All that being said this really boils down to his role model status and how he is held to a different standard. This will be blown way out of proportion because of who he is, and partially because of what he did. You won't see anyone in the media defending him either because it will put their own career in jeopardy, and that's all to sad. Does anyone know if the mother even bothered to phone the police? Hmmm.
I have a 4-year-old and I couldn't imagine switching him to any degree, but I also understand the cultural differences of our upbringing. This is something that should have been taken care of between the mother and father. This is all so truly sad.

Since Bronco Billy is not around at the moment I'll will say it then:
Tell the rest of your league to put on their big boy pants. If the guy who dropped Gordon can't fit into them, then suggest he takes his diaper off first.

Let's make it a message board participation. You can give us your roster, list of waiver possibilities, starters, etc. We'll vote as a group each week.
If you win, you donate the $500 to a charity, maybe something of DMD's choosing. Could be fun.

Got to readd this 10 more times!!!!!

To overrule the official NFL stats like this is absurd. Does your league review every single play and make their own determination about how a play should have been scored?
In short, it is absurd it even got this far, you are being screwed without lube, and regardless of the outcome of this sham of a vote, there is no way that I would be returning to this league.

Oh the hughmanity, an agreement to do what one wishes with their own money that was rightfully won. Simply asking the commish/treasurer to distribute differently to save the extra step (and in the case of paypal, possible added expense) of distributing the money. I really wish I had your stress free lives that something like this was an actual concern. Or maybe I should just be thankful that I treat this as the fun hobby that it should be, and making a little money can be a nice bonus.
It's all about reducing volatility. I'm not playing for mortgage money in any of my leagues (other than FFPC, but again, the money used to buy in is budgeted and not affecting my lifestyle), so none of the winnings that I stand to gain in any of my leagues are life changing or would go to serve any purpose than to maybe see me hand it to my wife so she can go to the spa or something. Other members of the league may not be in the same boat and have a greater need for the money or it would be more significant for them - so no big deal. I'm primarily playing for the pride/challenge of winning the damn league, the money is nothing more than a little icing on the top. I am in two championship games this weekend - both in BOTH leagues - one is the Huddle California league - winner is scheduled to get 270, 2nd place 150. If my opponent wanted to split it say 200 each and winner gets the extra 20, who the f cares, we're still playing the game out for the bragging rights of being the champion. MSHB is a league where the buy in is for charity and we play for pride - and I am actually much more interested in winning that league because it is an 18 team IDP league, and I am far from being very IDP knowledgable, so the prestige of winning that league does mean a lot more to me than the potential extra $120 for winning the Cali league.
I have to admit, I'm actually surprised, though I probably shouldn't have been, that people would actually take offense, and be adamantly opposed, to the idea of two owners agreeing to a different distribution of the prize pool that is mutually beneficial to them once they reached the title game.
