  1. Sorry but The Turbinator is so much better than Sea-Hulk from a national FF nickname perspective. Never did like the Sea-Hulk name they've been giving him. With enough buy in for The Turbinator, I think it can be turned around. Sea-Hulk just doesn't flow in ff.I like Sea-Hulk way more than Turbinator. Like Turbin's long term prospects but I think patience will be required for him unless Lynch has a major injury.
  2. Great discussion here guys. Last season I traded Calvin away after week 1. Got Roddy White, Ocho Cinco & a 2nd rounder for him. Several people in the league thought I got ripped. I ended up winning the league and the Calvin owner came in dead last, so the 2nd rounder became the 2.01. I know the prevailing wisdom here seems to be never trade your studs, but in this case I felt like it worked out for me. Roddy White is a stud in his own right, a top 7ish WR (I have Calvin 3, White 7), and I had no valid 2nd WR to start, so Ocho made sense. And I won the league. The object of fantasy football is to win - If I'd kept Calvin I would not have even been in the playoffs last year. The guy who traded for Calvin had no one to replace him with when he was hurt, and he suffered big time. So while obviously you want to field a team of studs, without depth there is no margin for error. If one of your guys has an off year or is injured, you're in a tight spot.
  3. I think Stecker is 31-32 years old, and has been a backup since coming into the league. While he's filled in nicely the last couple of weeks and was decent enough a few years ago when Deuce missed time, I can't see him having much long term value. IIRC he's also a free agent next season. If Deuce is gone then he could have some short term value, but I can't see a whole lot from him, more like a Michael Pittman type.
  4. Just wanted to add my thx to F&L for this thread. Great dynasty info and debates. Great stuff.
  5. Am I the only one who desperately wants Carmella to be riddled with bullets next week?
  6. I wish this show wasn't ending.
  7. Jack has the greatest sneer on TV. What a ##### bag that guy is.
  8. kinda resembles him but I'm pretty sure it's not the same guy.
  9. Am I the only one who thinks this part of the show is really cheesy? Gale is using psyche 101 on Jack and Locke and they seem to be falling for it hook line and sinker. Are they both idiots?
  10. some low wonderlics on this thread (no, not you Tanner)
  11. Apparently, Charlie has a history with drugs. That was a pretty big revelation. this episode sucked big time IMO. Charlie would be better off hanging himself from one of the trees he didn't burn down or joining the Others than staying with this bunch ##### bags.
  12. Don't know if this is a Honda. Interesting stuff -- especially because it appears to have worked in foiling terrorists at least once. Link Reports: Bush Authorized NSA to Spy in U.S. NEW YORK - The National Security Agency has eavesdropped, without warrants, on as many 500 people inside the United States at any given time since 2002, The New York Times reported Friday. That year, following the Sept. 11 attacks, President Bush authorized the NSA to monitor the international phone calls and international e-mails of hundreds — perhaps thousands — of people inside the United States, the Times reported. Before the program began, the NSA typically limited its domestic surveillance to foreign embassies and missions and obtained court orders for such investigations. Overseas, 5,000 to 7,000 people suspected of terrorist ties are monitored at one time. The Times said reporters interviewed nearly a dozen current and former administration officials about the program and granted them anonymity because of the classified nature of the program. Government officials credited the new program with uncovering several terrorist plots, including one by Iyman Faris, an Ohio trucker who pleaded guilty in 2003 to supporting al-Qaida by planning to destroy the Brooklyn Bridge, the report said. But some NSA officials were so concerned about the legality of the program that they refused to participate, the Times said. Questions about the legality of the program led the administration to temporarily suspend it last year and impose new restrictions. On Friday, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was asked about the program. "I'm not going to comment on intelligence matters," she told NBC's "Today" show. But Rice did say that President Bush "has always said he would do everything he can to protect the American people, but within the law, and with due regard for civil liberties because he takes seriously his responsibility." "The president acted lawfully in every step that he has taken," Rice said, "to defend the American people and to defend the people within his constitutional responsibility." Caroline Fredrickson, director of the Washington legislative office of the American Civil Liberties Union, said the group's initial reaction to the NSA disclosure was "shock that the administration has gone so far in violating American civil liberties to the extent where it seems to be a violation of federal law." Asked about the administration's contention that the eavesdropping has disrupted terrorist attacks, Fredrickson said the ACLU couldn't comment until it sees some evidence. "They've veiled these powers in secrecy so there's no way for Congress or any independent organizations to exercise any oversight." Earlier this week, the Pentagon said it was reviewing its use of a classified database of information about suspicious people and activity inside the United States after a report by NBC News said the database listed activities of anti-war groups that were not a security threat to Pentagon property or personnel. Pentagon spokesmen declined to discuss the matter on the record but issued a written statement Wednesday evening that implied — but did not explicitly acknowledge — that some information had been handled improperly. The Bush administration had briefed congressional leaders about the NSA program and notified the judge in charge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, the secret Washington court that handles national security issues. Aides to National Intelligence Director John Negroponte and West Virginia Sen. Jay Rockefeller, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, declined to comment Thursday night. The Times said it delayed publication of the report for a year because the White House said it could jeopardize continuing investigations and alert would-be terrorists that they might be under scrutiny. The Times said it omitted information from the story that administration officials argued could be useful to terrorists.
