How do we remove someone from the league and say ... put someone else in to take over their team? Who do I nu-tor?


Bottom three teams relegated to the yahoo league, top three yahoo teams promoted to the ESPN league. That's how. Good luck and maybe we'll see ya next year.

huh?


That means if you finish 18th, 19th, or 20th in the ESPN league you are kicked out and sent to the yahoo league next year, and if you finish 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in the yahoo league you earn the right to play in the ESPN league next year. It was a backwards way of saying ESPN > yahoo. It was also completely made up.

That is too harsh, man.

It should be the last place team in the ESPN league gets tossed and the 1st place team in the blowho league moves up with the big boys.

What makes a Chevy so good and a Ford so bad, or a Ford so good and a Chevy so bad?

There are fanatics on either side of any issue. ;)

No doubt. I'd still like to know what is good and bad about each though.

Trade proposal:

I just registered a trade proposal to acquire Kenny Britt from the lucky leprechauns in exchange for my Tyler Thigpen.

It is good for 24 hours.

Snooze you lose. How's Matt Cassel doing, health-wise, I mean...djcubez?

Does NOT sound promising...sure hope you read this before that deadline expires--I think you play Dhazer's team 1st game. It would really suck if I were to trade him to Dhazer...

He might even give me Shady McCoy for him, just to prevent you from having him...

I'm just sayin' Cassel is not dead

But, I only finish 1st. That's why Ninja wouldn't allow me in. He knows I've won the last four leagues I've played in and fears me. FEARS ME!! :)

Trade proposal:

I just submitted a trade proposal to acquire Marques Colston from the Appalachian Mountaineers in exchange for my(Pennsylvania Dhazercrushers) Dauante Culpepper.

This is a "handcuff opportunity" for Stevetarded, as he currently has Matt Stafford on his roster, thus ensuring that he has a starter on his bench, in that he would have both QB's that are vying for that position in Detroit.

(Steve has Aaron Rodgers, btw)

Good for 24 hrs.

My response to dfosterf:
Last I check Thigpen was on waivers, did you happen to pick him up just to make this move?

I'm not ready to move Britt, as I see it he's one of the most valuable WR's on my team because nobody knows how good he could be, especially because the Titans don't have a standout receiver.

Plus, Thigpen has two cracked ribs, and nobody knows if he will truly backup Cassel in this situation, as Brodie Croyle is the healthiest QB on the roster. Not to mention that KC hasn't released Cassel's actual injury report--some sources are saying he actually could be healthy for the regular season opener.

I agree though, I am screwed in my QB situation, but I'm not ready to trade any of my players just yet. It's a 20 team league so every player is vital.

Which brings me to my main complaint about the league in the first place. I'm handcuffed because I only have 1 QB and he's hurt. All other 31 starting QB's are owned because there's 20 teams with one team even owning my hurt QB's backup. Whatever though, I already pretty much wrote myself out of this league when I couldn't attend the draft (because it got switched). And yes I am sour about it.

hardrocker950 (1h) : Just wonderful - my pick em didn't register....
beast (11h) : I'm not sure if it's still true, but it used to be hard to get sacks on Eli because he'd toss one up when linemen got semi-close (which lead
Zero2Cool (11h) : Slam Eli a lot very early. Once rattled he can't regain composure.
beast (12h) : since slot WRs might be the Packers strength depth/talent wise
beast (12h) : With AR's passing % down field so low, I've been saying they should go with short passes like the Pats used to do, especially since slot WRs
beast (12h) : What's going to be needed against the Giants is OL and DBs (IMO)
Smokey (28-Sep) : Cook(TE) has time to heal, but may not be needed against NYG on Oct 9th .
Zero2Cool (27-Sep) : . Aaron Rodgers has a completion percentage of 33.3 on 10+ air yard passes this season (tied for the lowest in NFL).
