if you want to ruin your whole season!!!!!!!!!!! Does this guy watch NFL football????????

Sorry should this be in the venting thread?

 
Listening to Karabell and expecting good advice is like going to McDonalds and expecting a good meal.

 
I actually like Karabell's opinions on players for the most part. What did he say that was :excited:
Really? Not sure what the OP was alluding to, but I always thought Karabell was "at the curve" with his analysis and player insight and never "before it". I am guessing he has better access to inside sources than most FF staffs/sites put together, but I find more "look for Delhomme to lock onto Steve Smith when he returns in Week 3" insight compared to "Mush had 15 targets in Week 1 due in part to Smith's absence and while many feel those targets will decrease greatly come Week 3, traditionally targets tend to vary by less than 30% on a week-to-week basis by receiver in the Carolina offense over the past five years, so look for a slight decrease, but 8-10 targets for Mush should be the norm"...now I made half that stuff up about the varying targets, etc., but I would like to see more indepth knowledge than just the obvious.

Karabell (Tinkerbell) is a joke. I remember him once putting LT on his "start list" a couple years ago. Oh yeah, he said to start P Manning too.

I see no reason to berate McDonalds in any comparison here. I would compare Karabell's advice to eating out of a dumpster. MacDonalds is a clear two notches above that.

 
Big fan of Karabell. Knows his stuff unlike that other twit on ESPN, Matt Berry. Guy is so lame he wishes for players to perform poorly or well depending on his projections. I mean, how freakin lame is that? No spine.

He may know stuff like that, but that's not what the guy in the average office watercooler league wants to hear. That would turn most people off. So yeah, maybe the McDonald's comparison is good. He delivers a consistently average product that the vast majority of the American consumer is looking for.

I was actually going to post something similar to this. A woman that works for me has a husband that is a chef. I asked her if he watches all those cooking shows and she told me he found them frustrating. When I asked why, she said something like "he does not want to know which ingredients are being used, but when they are being infused into the dish during the cooking process and at what temperatures. Basically, he is a better cook than the masses and those shows are marketed to the masses. Moral of the story: Don't eat at McDonalds and expect to win your league...or something like that.

I like it. Joe should probably print it on a T-shirt.
