  1. Figured I'd check out the thread with the recent news. Possibly get some football discussion. Guess not. But sort of proves the point why people are avoiding him -- the discussion focuses on politics, not football. However, for all those praising Kaep and his fight for good, remember that there's a very strong argument that he did it/does it all for a woman. http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2016/08/30/kaepernick-social-media-posts-laud-black-lives-matter-black-panthers-since-dating-activist-dj.html Not sure if we should be comparing him to Paul Robeson yet.
  2. My apologies if someone else already said this but put info in the title of your post, such as Dynasty -- Melvin and Alshon for Julio? Make people interested in the question and more likely to read the question, responses, and maybe contribute. Below are some of the current headings: Would you consider this offer? PPR Dynasty Blockbuster of all deals Need help moving draft picks on dynasty Does this make sense given roster? I think I will b ok And then you have "Another 1.01 question" which makes you wonder why they didn't post in one of the other 1.01 threads.
  3. Maybe it's just me but I don't see a problem here. It's a free forum and people are asking for free help. Anything they get should be considered a plus. This is especially true when the same posts appear here, on Twitter, and on several other sites. And, moreso when many of the questions could be answered -- by the FBG staff -- through purchasing a membership. The mere fact that you cut and pasted a question on several sites doesn't entitle you to meaningful analysis on all of those sites. If those in the AC forum think that there's not enough activity, that's on them. I don't know who in particular is complaining but I'd wager that those that complain about a lack of responses likely respond to very few questions of others. There should almost be an unwritten rule that you don't post a question in the AC forum unless, and until, you answer 3 (or 5 or some other number) questions of others. Instead of imposing the AC on the members of the Shark Pool, ask those that swim in the AC forum to solve their own "problem" and be more active.
  4. At what point does this discussion get moved out of the Shark Pool? All sides raise arguments and points they are entitled to argue, and most do it very well. But this has absolutely nothing to do with real football or fantasy football. All we know right now is that we have a QB that opted out of his contract and, from what I understand, has not scheduled any visits to any teams or received any offers. While people should be free to argue about his stance on the flag, etc. in the FFA, this thread shouldn't be littering the Shark Pool until we at least get a "rumor" of even a "potential" visit or "interest" of any sort from any team. BTW, I anticipate getting flamed on this. I will not respond so have at it.
  5. Agreed. That's why I was wondering if they were able to monetize the software or IP. It also makes you wonder if this is a situation where he could have avoided bankruptcy.
  6. I didn't even realize that FBG maintained this. Very helpful resource. And props to you for including links to competitors' sites.
  7. Does anyone know if the Trustee was able to sell the software? Or the domain name?
  8. Considering that he was a backup TE for most of the season, 36-478-8 is spectacular and, with the possible exception of TDs, I don't see any reason why his numbers don't improve. How many guys can legitimately claim that as a floor? As for rookies, you really think 2-4 rookies in this year's draft will match Hunter's performance? That seems to be a bit of a stretch. Or is it 2-4 that could match his numbers, such that 1-2 actually matching the numbers is a good result? If the latter, I'd rather take the safe bet than burn a 1.7, 2.1, 2.3, or 2.7 on a guy who might just be Kellen Winslow but hoping that he's Henry.
  9. As some have noted, you have to value Henry over Howard. Which logically means that if you're about to draft Howard, it makes sense to offer that pick for Henry, although I would argue that it would cost you more to get Henry. So if you have Howard at 1.7, then it necessarily follows that Henry is worth more than the 1.7. I understand the argument that some wouldn't give a first for any TE because of depth or variability at the position. But those owners also have to realize that they won't have a shot at guys like Gronk, Eifert, Kelce, Henry, Olsen, or even Howard. So what they would pay for Henry doesn't really factor into the equation of what Henry is worth.
  10. How did this get to 6 pages? It seems that the major justification was the AR15 was only the 71st highest-scoring player last year. Even if so, and even if that was an indication of value, and even if AR15 didn't pick up some value because he's younger than most other players, the 71st player off the board in startups is roughly equal to the rookie 1.7-1.9.
  11. Gotta be honest. I noticed a few of your posts in the dynasty trades thread. You seemed to be a bit of a tool there. And more so here. Hopefully people have stroked your wounded ego enough. Gonna move on to more interesting threads.
  12. I find it interesting that you come to a message board asking for opinions but decline to give even the most basic information. I personally wouldn't post the offer. But if there was an owner that has a history of making awful deals and this deal happened to be another awful deal, then I wouldn't be as opposed to a public shaming. Given your refusal to post the offer, I'm beginning to wonder about how bad your offer was.
  13. Which side is bad? I prefer Cooper but that's a decent collection of picks in a good draft.
  14. I thought that I read somewhere that MFL wasn't going to change the servers or league IDs for leagues going forward. If that's the case it would make it a lot easier to carry over from season to season. I would also think that, down the road, the single sign-on might allow the possibility to mass import leagues instead of having to do one at a time. On the My FBG front, do you foresee the ability to transfer over scoring rules as well as teams? I imagine that it's limited to what MFL makes available. But that would be huge if it could be done.
