I'm glad I haven't had the misfortune of reading any of this guy's crap advice.

Gotta agree with this. Usually, the greatest value these guys provide is comic relief. Two weeks ago, on Sunday morning live fantasy chat at espn, one guy was giving reasonable start/sit advice for a bit. He had to go and was relieved by a different guy who started offering exact opposite advice to later chatters. Highly comical. Another that really cracks me up is Erik Williams. Not sure if he's on Fox or ESPN, but he was on recently with his start/sit for the week with such pearls as "you probably should start Culpepper this week" and "despite the Falcons surprisingly strong defense, I would not bench Priest Holmes this week". Too bad he didn't suggest which week we should bench Priest!

I bet he also thinks that the team in 1st place should trade his best player to the team in last so the league will be even ;-7

nice ;-D


This isn't the polite competition. It is a game and the object of a game is to win. WE have rules in place that almost everyone in FF adhere to. Sacrificing your team because of uninformed or even stupid people is not one of them.

I see what he's saying, that if you take advantage of someone, you're less likely to get trades from other people. I'm sure everyone has a guy in their league like that. Our guy has earned the nickname "Smoke and Mirrors" and has decided this year to purposefully do some trades unfair to his team so he could clear his reputation some.

But this ESPN guy has it backwards. I could see if the people writing in were offering lopsided trades, but that's not the case. There's no need to counter and give someone more. That's just ridiculous and if the people that wrote in followed his advice, they are just as moronic as the ESPN guy.

LOL, what a friggin chump.

1/2 the fun of FF is fleeceing others when the opportunity presents itself. :-D

I offered a guy, a while ago, Suggs/ D. Gabriel for Mason---

he countered with: Mason and Dom. Davis for R. Williams and Suggs.

I couldn't accept fast enough.

According to this guy, then I should've countered with adding a player to his mix?????


Not to mention, opinions, are always variables in transactions, so who's to say???
Ridiculous.
Please help me with mine, thanks!
