Don't gloat, I'm kicking your ass in the league that actually matters, champ.

That's what I mean. Too many starters = having to keep too many bench players.

If someone got hurt now and I had to go looking in the free agent pool for a replacement, there MIGHT be 2 who actually had a chance of starting on Sunday.

It's pretty ridiculous.

Well I guess since I'm kicking your ass in the one you're whining about I guess I'll have to live with that...

I'm not complaining, I just set a team.

Maybe next year you can create 8 email accounts....

that way you can start your own league, play with yourself, & guarantee a winning season.

You can keep calling me "Champ" too; I'm glad you recognize my skillz there playa.

I have been thinking about that. Count me in.

We are giving grief to Chiz for being commish, and I hate to do that, but I am still pissed about the whole draft setting thing.

I agree with you Dave! That league right now has nothing to do skills and everything to do with luck! Congrats on your luck Zumanity. I have the most moves in the league to try and put a squad together...and I have been able to string together two wins in a row....but I am still second from bottom.

I don't think it's anything against Chizip personally. People have made it more than clear that the autodraft league is considered inferior to the live draft league, so why not have someone who likes autodraft run it next year?

I say we talk about it next year, both having a new commish and starting fewer players as we did in the past (1 QB, 1 DEF, 1 TE, etc.).

Luck has something to do with how anyone does on any given week, good or bad. But it's not the only thing.

I have the second most moves (just saying). It's not about picking up often; it's about picking up smart.

For example: Ryan Grant had 100 yds rushing, 31 yds receiving, & scored a TD on Thurs; he's sitting on the waiver wire. Would 12.5 points have helped anybody win their game this week? He's been GB's starting RB for the last 3 weeks. At least 1 TD &/or 100 rushing yards in 3 of the last 4 games.

On the other hand, M. Lynch has been listed as not playing since Mon, yet somebody is going to start him tomorrow. Is that luck?

My point is this; even in a league this "deep", it is possible to find good players, it just takes a little more work.

And Ryan Grant could be shut down next week. Luck!

I believe I probably picked second overall. I was given Steven Jackson. I was pleases with my luck there. Now, he hasn't been productive more than two weeks this season. Bad luck!

Anyone can be shut down any week.

Bro', I hate to be the one to tell you....

It's all luck.

If I could know what's going to happen in the NFL every week for 17 weeks in the future, I wouldn't be doing this for free. $$$

One should not speak in absolutes when talking sports.

I misspoke; but I never denied luck was a factor.

BTW, by drafting JP Losman & Alex Smith as your QB's, you were destine for failure...

but you could have avoided it.

that's where skill comes in

What a great week to not start Devin Hester.

ETA: Oh shit. I just realized I left the Philly defense in by mistake.

Go back and read the thread over and focus on posts after the draft.

If I actually had the opportunity to pre-draft for the day the auto draft was supposed to happen, I would not have ended up with such horrible QBs.

Luck (bad), I guess...again. You are wrong.

OK, you were busy, but

you have been in these leagues for at least 3 years & didn't bother to learn about how they work. You could have pre-ranked anytime after the league was set up. Why wait til the last minute?

Sounds like sour grapes to me,but if it makes you happy then I'll agree with you....

In the Auto Draft League...








it sucks to be you.


I'm going to go polish my trophies now...

Wow...you're being a real ass. I will take note of that as the commish next year.


I think I know how the league works.

Yes, I could have auto-drafted earlier. I was a bit busy living out of a hotel with crappy wireless. But you have no idea what was going on in my life at that time.

Thanks for making crappy judgements, though. And, yeah...go polish your "trophy."
