    There are quite a few people making controversial post and snide remarks around here. I find it interesting when only some are called out about it.

    I never intended to call anyone out but not only did BB make one not funny post (to which I mentioned no names at the time), his guilty conscience most likely got the best of him and he then came back and tried to double down.  

     

    If you wouldn't make comments like that on the subway - cause you'd get popped square in the nose - then don't make them here.  


  2. Didn't watch Thursday or much of anything yesterday.  Watched a little of the Titans/Broncos tonight.  Meh..

     

    I'd rather watch my butt cheeks jiggle when I fart - that is until they get all this BS back out of the game.

    Us drafters in the 10 team are a but more "deliberate" in our process, plotting out ways to snipe as many players from our cohorts as possible.   And while @Shorttynaz and I share similar interests   :D    , no way we would have let him come away with the best draft - :pokey:

    LOL.  That's awesome.  :)


  4. After taking a poll of the 10 regulars that have been a part of this league as long as I have (18 years), 1 has 'retired' from Fantasy Football for good due to all the political BS - he vowed that he's done with the NFL in general until it's back to where it was 15 years ago.  We all said goodbye and wished him well as this will never happen.  

     

    I bowed out along with my brother in-law who has played for the past 10 years or so.  After the two of us bowed out, I had another former co-worker I got into this league to bow out for the season - so now the commish is looking for 3 people.  After 3 of us left, another old co-worker of mine that I got into this league also decided to step away for at least a year.  So now there's 4 openings.  Two of the commissioners buddies are on the fence, and both said they're fine with just shutting this league down for the season and revisiting again next year to see how it all plays out.  

     

    That said, this morning the commissioner sent out the email stating that after everyone bailed on him, he's decided to shut down both of his long running fantasy leagues indefinitely - I think part of him is butthurt that more than half the league bailed in his redraft league.  He also runs a franchise league to where each player 'owns' two players, and the rest of the unowned players are all part of a shared pool to where anyone/everyone can start anyone in that shared pool.  It's a fun league but more challenging as it's still tracked on paper/email as no site can support this.  But - he's pulled the plug on that one as well as 8/10 of the same managers are in both leagues.  

     

    I felt kinda crappy by leading the way by stepping away this year, but not so much when more than half the league followed suit.  I've been saying for a few years that I wanted to take a season off from Fantasy and see if I can re-fall in love with the sport that I once loved.  Fantasy has made me a bigger fan, but has ruined my love for the game in general.  I am hoping to just be a Colts fan and not get pissed off when Marlon Mack vultures TDs away from Jonathan Taylor, or Michael Pittman steals all the redzone looks away from TY Hilton.  

     

    I'll most likely still remain somewhat involved in these forums throughout the season - if there is actually a full season - and what I will miss the most, no joke - is @DMD Mr. Doreys write ups and fantasy analysis to get me excited about the waiver wire, free agent pickups, upcoming games, etc.  

     

    Hopefully the stars align in my favor and I take the crown again in this best ball league and win a free ride next season - it will certainly play a role in me getting back into the grind of fantasy.
