#3944072 The 3.14 draft pick "decoupling"

Posted scoop55 on 04 June 2014 - 10:57 PM

So, I'm sitting in my basement looking at my "white eraser board" that I mounted on the wall specifically for this draft while eyeing my last pick of 3.14 coming closer and closer.

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.

#3889010 Thoughts on Incognito bullying Martin...

Posted Tripleshot on 03 November 2013 - 02:48 PM

I was walking my 10 year old daughter into school when anothet girl started calling her weirdo(my daughter has OCD). Before I knew what happened, I had grabbed the bully girl's Hello Kitty hairband, thrown it on the ground and stomped on it. Then I told her Santa was not real and it was really her parents giving the presents. When the bully girl started crying, I became aware of what I had just done out of anger/primal parental protection. Not having any Kleenex or a handkerchief to give her I ran away and hid in my minivan, while my daughter laughed at the bully girl and said "owned".

How about this idea?

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.

#3784043 Need help - league championshp on the line

Posted Big Country on 21 December 2012 - 01:48 PM

It does not matter why the NFL charged it to Wells and not Bradford, the fact is the fumble was charged to Wells, and it has not been corrected.

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.


#3784016 Would you split the pot?

Posted Big Country on 21 December 2012 - 12:22 PM

Note to self: As assumed, most huddlers take this hobby way too seriously.

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.

No because in those instances the player is still making the choices.

Completely different and about 10,000 different red herrings have been used in this thread now, yours is just the latest.

For me, and if you read it, for the OP, they are pissed he wasn't on the same "wavelength" aas them if you will and didn't take it seriously.  They are also pissed that he doesn't understand why they're pissed.  See the whole "...well you didn't tell me I couldn't..."argument...Okay, what are you four? If I have to write every rule in here that you CANNOT do, we'd be listing them forever.

If it was such an issue, it should have been addressed right after the draft.  Not after the season.  No one would put up a fuss if he finished last and I highly doubt the league would have refunded his money if that were the case.

You can't base your reaction on the results, it must be based on the actions.  It's too late to do anything this year.

#3940833 off-season chatter 2014

Posted Brentastic on 20 May 2014 - 07:40 PM

I too think it's a great trade for Bear!  I offered the same deal to Westhemess and he never pulled the trigger either.  I couldn't believe both those owners valued the 1.08 as much as me.  I know I gave the farm for the pick but I look at it more as paying for the whole.  It will be 5+ years before anyone really knows who won this trade.  Right now, Bear is a lap or two ahead of me for sure and I understood that when I made the trade.

I've told everyone here - I come strong with my trade offers.  I don't suzuki-foot around with say 2nd round picks for Gronk-type talent ;)  When I want something, I make it happen and that will continue to be reflected in future trades.  I don't like to get caught up in perceived value.  I trust my superior intuition more than anything so 'value' has a lot of variance when you're making deals with me.


#3914729 Bears sign Cutler to 7 year extension

Posted gilthorp on 08 January 2014 - 09:39 PM

I come from the football school as well. Some people who haven't played the game and :mouth:  think this is a bad move. It's the going rate for a good QB and he's a good QB.  The contract is relatively low risk and won't kill them down the road. He's maturing in many facets of his life, including his quarterbacking skills. He can make every single throw and he's with a coach that really wants him. If Bears fans don't like the signing, I'd suggest they just like to complain.

Funny how opinions are...


#3899353 Getting dinged twice

Posted scoop55 on 23 November 2013 - 09:14 PM

It's gotta be a grind to do the daily transactional upkeep of an 8 -team Dynasty League.  I KNOW it would be a bitch to do it for a 16-team league.  Personally, I couldn't do it effectively nor do I EVER want to try.  

We have a GREAT commish in Relish who is outstanding in the day to day transactions.  I will be terribly disappointed if all this back-n-forth disparagement causes him to rethink doing commissional functions going forward.

Relatively sure others share this opinion in all aspects.
