  1. I got reamed by my wife and two kids for suggesting it wasn't very good, but I couldn't explain why...but the posts above capture what I was trying to say. Something was missing but I couldn't pinpoint it, but it definitely was too fast-paced, not enough character depth, and the whole "woe is me" thing was killing me....but I mean, it wasn't garbage. Also I could've been just tired from watching 20 minutes of terrible previews and commercials.
  2. Good topic. This came up in my dynasty league (est. 2001) just last week as we voted on whether the salary of a suspended player should count against a team's cap. A few years ago, as commish, I allowed an extra spot on one team to compensate for losing S Tanard Jackson to suspension back when he was with the Bucs. As a contract/salary league that now uses actual player salaries via spotrac.com, my argument was to not charge for year long suspensions (a la Daryl Washington) if an NFL team is off the hook for the salary. Same with the Blackmon situation. Some owners felt the salary should be carried for 'punishment'; I argued against as we do not have a 'morality rule' nor did I care to legislate one. In the end, the result was no extra roster spot, you will carry a suspended player with no salary or a portion thereof (if it has been pro-rated down for less than a year suspensions) on your active roster. IR is and always has been for players placed on IR by their NFL team. I would keep the two separate. MFL just needs to add options for an Inactive List, Suspended List, Non Football Injury list, Reserve Retired List, etc. Just like the NFL. Problem solved.
  3. 16 team league, IDP dynasty, 35-man rosters, in existence since 2001, made up of old military buddies, some still in some not... We draft a week after the NFL draft. Lots of chatter throughout the year as we have lots of offseason activities going on, but suddenly the week we are drafting (online, MFL, takes us about 6 days) it becomes eerily quiet. I'm talking barely an email to a fellow owner. I I imagine everyone is hunkered down in their War Room. The biggest chatter you will see is a comment an owner might make on a pick he just made. After the draft, tons of chatter and comments, but for that week...crickets I'm glad I don't have to worry about owners spilling the secrets on any potential draft picks. I would say like a lot of folks, try to improve the caliber of owners in the league if it is indeed a serious league.
  4. Truth. Been using MFL since 2001 and have never had an "Armegeddon" situation that their team failed to respond to in a timely manner. Best in the business, hands down, for the price and features (and added features every year). Thank you MFL for staying above the rest of the pretenders.
  5. Lock it up: No matter who OAK picks, he will be a bust.
  6. Not Pierre! I would start him over Dobson or Thompkins, though, if I had him.
  7. :cool:Always been a fan.Young enthusiasts should read his autobiography "Waging Heavy Peace". Just finished it a few weeks ago and it includes a lot of Neil's history with various bands. Be warned it is random and scattered, but he admits to that because he has been 'clean' for awhile. Talks alot about Lionel trains and various new projects he's involved in. As a fan it was nice to see his eclectic interests and his love for his family especially his children.
  8. Uh, LT ran for 28 TD's once in his career. That was in 2006. That was Brees' first year with the Saints. In 2006, the Chargers QGB was Phillip Rivers who had less passes, less yards, lower completion percentage and lower TD's than Brees had in 2005 and LT's rushing TD's went up from 18 to 28.This isn't an LT situation, here, though.We're talking about a guy who won't get many receptions, and whose per touch numbers aren't likely to be above average. He'd need 250 carries to get 1,000 yards, at 4 a pop. That's 6.25 points/game. The rest of his value is going to come from TDs. He's not LT/ADP and is not going to create many TDs out of nothing. The Cardinals are going to have to move the ball in the redzone for him to get TDs. That's where the passing game comes into play. That's why the NE offense has turned Stevan Ridley and BJGE into TD machines - it isn't their offensive line and commitment to the run; it's Tom Brady and Company moving the ball all over the field. We understand that MJD, ADP, LT2, etc have produced while lacking quality QB play. But you're talking about Hall-of-Famers. Where are our 4YPC, 2.5/yr guys who score top 10 fantasy numbers without at least average QB play?So what's the consensus? Who cares about Beanie and LT2, is Mendy gonna be golden or what?
  9. So is this the 'Official Mike Goodson to the Jets' thread? If so I think the opportunity is there...but it's March.
  10. Not here in Hawaii...almost 1pm
  11. I would have thought hitting them with a shovel would be more humane. Same thing happened to me. I did a walkaround in my backyard first and still didn't see them, apparently they can get real low and flat in the uneven parts of the ground. This was in Illinois and I'm originally from Hawaii so had no clue about wild rabbits. Anyway, I hopped on my new rider and promptly did some laps...well from a distance I noticed something and as I got closer I saw a cute baby bunny, sitting up and shaking! As I did a lap and came around to the other side of him, I saw half his head was missing! What the hell?! Then as I continued on, I saw a flattened sibling, apparently my back tires got this one. The third one was pretty bad, lacerated across the body. On the next pass I saw the lone survivor up against my fence. I stopped and managed to get him around to the other side. Being unfamiliar with what to do, I asked my neighbor for advice. He went in the garage, got his shovel, and put the injured bunnies out of their misery. We dug a mass grave outside the fence line and tossed them in. I was pretty shook up, I am not averse to hunting but killing innocent cute rabbits by accident bothers me a tad
