  1. Congrats to the Eagles

    Great game by the Eagles team. Congrats to the players, team, fans and city. Well played.
  2. Agreed, the media circus is already in full swing..
  3. Maybe it’s been mentioned somewhere so sorry if this has been asked but with all the players and now owners showing some type of solidarity, why haven’t the owners/teams stepped up and signed Keap? Yes I know he is not that good but he is better than some backups out there.
  4. myHUDDLE player highlighting

    Hello, When I use myHuddle not all players are highlighted. I added Copper Kupp and he shows in my list of players however, when i click on WR weekly player rankings he is not highlighted. All my other players are listed and highlighted without issue.. Maybe its telling me i should not keep him Edit to add: He is also no showing up in the start bench tool... odd... Thank you Buzz
  5. song lyrics that mean something to you

    The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older. Shorter of breath and one day closer to death. Time - Pink Floyd Used to play this song each time we went out and said to my best friend, "Listen to the words" little did I know that those words were quite true. It brings back some good memories!
  6. Nnamdi Asomugha to Jets?

    From Rotoworld.. The Jets reportedly had no idea the Eagles were in the hunt for Nnamdi Asomugha "until near the end." The Eagles cold-played 'em. The Jets believed they had "some sort of understanding" with Asomugha if not necessarily a deal, according to CBSSports' Mike Freeman. The Eagles brain trust swooped in with a "phenomenal plan" developed by GM Howie Roseman and president Joe Banner before free agency began. "(The Jets) didn't pull out," one source said. "(The Jets) lost." Related: Jets Source: Newark Star-Ledger
  7. Haynesworth to Patriots

    Hold the phones.... From the globe. http://www.boston.com/sports/football/patr...hick_hayne.html Patriots coach Bill Belichick held his first press conference of training camp - and his first since the final day of the draft in April -- and while he acknowledged that a trade is in the works to bring Albert Haynesworth from Washington to New England, it isn't done yet. "I talked to (Redskins coach) Mike Shanahan last night and we are in the process with Haynesworth, but that's not complete yet, so I really can't comment on that at this point until it's completed, if it is completed. We'll see how all that goes," he said in his opening statement. It is interesting that Belichick used the word "if" the deal for Haynesworth gets done - it could be usual Belichick-speak, his not wanting to speak in absolutes, but given Haynesworth's history with conditioning tests, the big defensive lineman's health and condition could be a concern. Asked about Haynesworth, Belichick declined to speak further on him or the process or conditions of the trade, saying again he wouldn't discuss any of that until "when it's finished, if it's finished." We'll add more updates from Belichick shortly.
  8. Haynesworth to Patriots

    From the Globe. http://www.boston.com/sports/football/patr...s_trade_14.html The Patriots made their bold move. The team acquired defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth from the Washington Redskins, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Patriots sent a 2013 fifth-round pick to the Redskins. The trade is contingent on Haynesworth passing his physical, which has been a bit of an issue in the past. Well, this will certainly liven up camp. There is no question that when the 6-5 1/2, 320-pound Haynesworth is right, he's terrific and the best defensive lineman in football. Double teams can barely contain him as he can rush the passer and defend the run. But he hasn't been right since getting paid by the Redskins in 2009 to the tune of $115 million over seven years. It's essentially a four-year, $48-million contract because his base salary goes to $29 million in '13. Hayesworth, if he wasn't asked to restructure his contract, is due $5.4 million in base salary this season (plus a $1 million workout bounus) and $7.2 million next year. The money is why this is Belichick's biggest reclamation project. When Randy Moss went to New England, he needed to remake himself to get paid down the line (still hasn't happened). Running back Corey Dillon, however, was making a nice chunk of change 3.3 million for 2004 and $3.85 million for '05. But Dillon at least liked to play. People aren't sure of that with Haynesworth. Let's not forget that Haynesworth faces an Aug. 23 trial for misdemeanor sexual assault. On the field, Haynesworth was suspended for the final month of the season by the Redskins. At the time he said he couldn't play for in the Redskins' 3-4 scheme any longer. The Patriots play a lot of four-man fronts, but he's still going to have to play the 3-4. That being said, no one is better in the league at fitting his scheme to his players than Belichick. Redskins coach Mike Shanahan and defensive coordinator Jim Haslett (a former head coach himself) couldn't get Haynesworth to do anything. Of course, Shanahan tried to jam it down Haynesworth's throat. "I don't think I've ever had a player just tell me he didn't want to play "Okie" defense [the base 3-4] and then later say he didn't want to play nickel versus the run, 'Just play me on third downs,'" Haslett said. "No, I've never had that before. And we tried to accommodate him. It's a shame because he's athletic enough. He can do almost anything he wants. Obviously, he didn't want to do it. Good athletes can do a lot of different things. Basketball players -- guards can play forwards, they can play different positions. I watch throughout the league, I see wide receivers do the 'Wildcat.' I think to myself, 'If you're a good enough athlete, you can do almost anything you want. You've just got to want to do it.'" Haslett continued in on Haynesworth. "You always want to use good players, but they've got to be willing to do what you want them to do," Haslett said. "Obviously, if the guy's not willing to do what you want them to do and you're the head coach, and the guy doesn't practice well on Thursday -- about as poor as I've ever seen -- and then Friday, a so-called illness that he doesn't practice. Then, if I'm the head coach on Saturday, getting ready for Sunday, you've got to make a decision: What's best for the football club? "I think Mike made the right decision to make him inactive, based off what he saw. We know over the years, based off what we saw last year in film, when he doesn't practice well or he doesn't show up for Christmas -- or whatever the situation is -- then he doesn't play well." Like the drafting of QB Ryan Mallett, this is another move most teams couldn't afford to make because they would run the risk of a Haynesworth blowup derailing the season. Patriots don't have to worry about that.
  9. Haynesworth to Patriots

    I believe it was a 5th rounder.... does that make it even more fantastic?
  10. Transactions in your leagues

    In the league I am co-comish. It is a salary cap local league which we charge 220 (Collected at the time of the draft) per team. We charge 3 per waiver wire transaction. We used to charge for trades, but we removed the cost of the trades to help stimulate trades within the league. It had no effect. Teams still consider their players gold and anything you/they offer is trash… In a ten team league we average 1 to 2 trades per year. We use the transaction fees collected to pay out starter points. We keep a running total of each starter category (QB, RB, WR, FLEX, DEF, and K) and the winner of each category would get 1/6 of the transaction cost collected through the year. Buzz…
  11. Rags to Riches

    While you could agree that he was a tough TE and helped the Giants win a couple of SB…. I would not classify him coming from the Getto. He was born in Winthrop MA and played his HS football in Danvers MA. I would have to say the “Night Train” would be the one… Getting thrown in a dumpster can not be fun…..
  12. Auction style waivers system

    I am a co- commissioner in a league and this is how we handle it. • We have a 100 dollar salary cap set for the entire year and all teams must be at or below the cap. • We open up the bid process on Tuesday night from 8pm to 11pm. • The owners that want to make a bid on an available player must send an email to each commissioner. In the event that their email is down or they are away from their email they would place a phone call to one of the commissioner outlining their bid for a player. • Any bids received outside the designated time window are invalid. • The Commissioners will assign/award players based upon the highest bid and update the league web site/team rosters and notify the Winning & Losing Owners by 7pm on Wednesday. • In case of a tie bid the player goes to the team with the poorest record, if still tied the team with the fewest points, still tied then it goes to a coin-toss. • The Commissioners must submit their bids to each other, via email or voice mail no later than 8:00PM Tuesday. This means they will have NO knowledge of anyone else's bids when they make theirs. • When a bid is submitted you MUST indicate at least 1 player per bid that will be cut to make roster space if your bid wins. If you fail to designate a player to be cut the bid is invalid. • Teams with winning bid on a player must keep that player on their roster thru a minimum of one NFL week. • Players dropped on Tuesday night are eligible to be picked up when the free agent window opens on Wednesday at 8pm. However, their salary will remain in effect for 1 NFL week. After that their salary will be 1 million. • Players cut from a fantasy roster are IMMEDIATELY eligible to be picked up (except during GAME TIME when rosters are frozen). • Free agent window opens Wednesday at 8pm and ends 5 minutes before the first game of the week. Each team can go in and pick up any available player. The drawback to the Tuesday night bid process is that it is manual. Once Wednesday comes around the free agent window is automated on the league website. Hope this helps Buzz
