Fantasy Football - the misery continues

Yup. 3-7. 9th place in a ten team league.

I suck.

At least this past week I lost to the league leader 'Juicy Beavers'.

For the record, I think the OT scenarios in the NFL suck. Sudden death is stupid, ties are stupid. Play a quarter free-for-all, and if at the end you're still tied then give both teams a single down to drive in a TD from the 1 yard line. No score after all that, then go ahead and declare a tie.

* * * *
Regarding the disputed SD-Pit game (which I did watch): give me a break. The only people upset with the outcome are gamblers, and I'm sick of it. I thought it was pretty classless (although legal) to run in the TD in the first place when the game was over and it meant nothing.

Then to call it a TD, reverse it, announce you think you were wrong by reversing it, and then, THEN follow up with a notion to increase instant replay even more as a result, well that's just smarmy.

Did they or did they not cover the spread SHOULD NEVER BE A CONCERN, VOCALIZED OR INTERNALIZED, OF ANY NFL OFFICIAL ON THE FIELD OR BEHIND A MAHOGANY DESK.

Aaron Rodgers looked solid this weekend. Here's hoping for more of the same next week.

'Wide right' again in Buffalo. What a crappy game. Cleveland - Buffalo is a good reason why the NFL should retain the power to alter the schedule in-season to ensure marquee matchups for their big timeslots.

Zero comments?! hehe.

ok...
gotta drop indy's defense, if you haven't already, they just aren't strong enough *right now* and haven't been stopping the rushes. that's been a big problem for them.

don't know who's available for pick up though.
Pick up Tampa Bay if you can...they'll bring you some points. lord i hope you read this before kick off!

Chris is PISSED about the tie. Pissed. The coaching staff knew the rules even if McNabb says he didn't....how could they not know the rules?! cough::bs::cough
