  1. The bolded seems to be the story of my season. Both Molden and Rochell are available as well. Rochell I could actually add to my taxi squad as I have one opening there for a rookie. Will "research" these guys a little more and come to a decision. Appreciate the input.
  2. Need a bye week cover (possibly more) at DB this week - 2 pt. tackle, 2 pt. INT, 1.5 pt Pass Defense Guys without a week 7 bye (Jayron Kearse is available but doesn't help this week) include: Kendall Fuller - scored 9 or more in 5 of 6 weeks, including 17 or more in 3 weeks, currently DB12 in our league Jaquiski Tartt - dropped last week, has scored between 6 and 12 points each week thus far Those are probably the top 2 on my list, but a lot of CBs are available that are in that 9-12 PPG range right now. Top ones based on the site projections beyond those 2 are Terrance Mitchell, L'Jarius Sneed, AJ Bouye and Anthony Averett. Anyone jump out as the one I should snag?
  3. We got a couple of the full size controllers as those small half controllers are very small, even for my older kids, that it was just a bit silly. My youngest uses it a bit, I've only schooled them in Mario Kart a few times. We don't really use it as much as we should to have justified it, but the full size controllers are a must IMO unless you have dainty hands.
  4. The player himself is currently saying he does not know if he got the clots from the vaccine. https://twitter.com/goodysav/status/1448717954049314817 "I don’t have a story. That wasn’t something I wanted to get out there. I got sick. Maybe it was the vaccine maybe it was covid idk I’m not a expert. But I’m fine, and I’m healthy and about to play."
  5. My wife would probably kill me, but this is giving me an idea - I've been planning to add a TV to the garage where I built a home gym to be able to put something on for extra background noise, but maybe I could add 2-3 smaller ones and put on multiple games/shows
  6. It is interesting/funny to read this, as here in southern California our seasons are the opposite of this - we are right in the middle of our club season which will go until November 20th, at which point all the teams that are 07 or older will go dark until the end of February, where we will resume for the last month of league play before heading to playoffs/tournaments. Pretty much from Thanksgiving through end of February is our high school season, and it is a CIF violation to play both at the same time. Those kids playing in the EAL showcase tournament in Florida the first weekend of December won't be allowed to join their high school teams until they return, which for our teams would mean missing the first 3 high school games of the season.
  7. I'll expand on my viewpoint a bit, as some of what Riddick also rings true for me as far as my lack of posting in this forum. Part of it is that in foolishness however many years ago, when I set up my forum name my usual online moniker was already taken, but as I was heavily involved on another FF forum at the time (The Huddle where, much like here, many life long real life friendships have been formed), but had been familiar with this site since the Cheatsheet.net days and enjoyed lurking the forums, set up a name that is a little too easy to track down my real life name, thus I am a lot more careful/reserved in posting. I'm not one to be that controversial anyway and in my personal social media am virtually non-existent, using it to mostly keep up with my family and close friends, though I likely have not posted anything myself in years. And I definitely don't talk politics or religion there. I've considered setting up an alias account to feel like I could more freely post some comments and engage in discussions here with a bit more anonymity, but I don't really want to do that, and I know it's against the forum rules, and thus far have not found a topic where I felt passionate enough to feel the need to do that.
  8. This for me, though I primarily lean a bit left on the majority of issues and primarily lurk this forum, but think that for the few posters that are able to post their views/thought processes without just attacking or name calling, I have learned some valuable insight that has led me to reflect on and in several cases adjust my view on some topics. The hard part is wading through a lot of the muck, from both sides, to be able to mine those nuggets of insight.
  9. This is my wife with my 14 year old. I do my best to not stress, trying to be the calming influence for him, but inside is all butterflies, especially PKs etc. He absolutely loves it back there, was naturally inclined towards keeper basically from the first time he stepped foot on a field - even when 5 years old and you had the swarm effect of all 10 kids on the field around the ball, he'd gravitate back to guarding our goal even though there were no goalies -
  10. I wonder if he will circle Uranus and wipe out the Klingons
  11. The bolded is directly correlated to the underlined. Two weekends ago for my 07s NPL game they only had a single referee. At that age and that level it is near impossible to handle with just one. In this case, it was the other team's parents that were acting up, so much so that they managed to find an AR to work just their sideline for the second half. They didn't knock it off, one of their parents was red carded. My son has thought about reffing, but then when he sees things like that (and much of the same at even the younger levels and down into rec) he decides it's not worth it which is unfortunate.
  12. So it's kind of like "Lost", just now they are trying to figure out how to string along a couple extra seasons because it's making too much money
  13. This feels like a poor man's Arizona Ron thread - here for the payoff
  14. It can definitely be extremely rewarding. When my oldest (now 16 years old) was in 2nd grade I volunteered to be the assistant coach for his basketball team. Here we are 9 years later and between the 3 boys I have coached more basketball teams than I can remember (and not just with my kids on it, I love coaching basketball and now assist with the high school team and feeder teams), coached more flag football teams than I can remember, had my middle son quickly develop in soccer well past the level where I can do little more than sit back and be amazed at what he does in goal, had all 3 decide baseball was too slow for them and now have the oldest 2 (with the youngest interested) getting into volleyball, which beyond the old bump-set-spike I learned in PE I was clueless about. My approach has always been that player development came first, and that while we would play to win and be competitive, we wouldn't do anything just to win. For my rec basketball teams, that meant splitting time fairly evenly, even though the rules stated that it was open sub in the 4th quarter, I'd play everyone while many teams would only play their top 5. For 4 years straight when my two oldest kids were in 3rd-4th grade, I finished 3rd place in the playoffs - but I generally get the most positive feedback and most kids requesting to play with me again. For me that was worth it. Just don't allow it (and I'm not implying you would) to become a way to try relive or recapture any sort of former sports glory - make sure it stays about the kids.
