Tar and feather him!


Here are some truths I have learned in life...

1) Never eat yellow snow.
2) Never spit into the wind.
3) Leprechans are amusing.
4) Clowns are not.
5) BrutallyHuge will always be loud and overly-sarcastic, but occasionally his analysis is right on the money. (This is one of those times).

What about Leprechauns dressed as clowns? Has always been a grey area for me.

I'm going with no. Leprechans dressed as clowns tend to act like clowns, and therefore aren't funny. Clowns in tiny leprechan costumes that cut off their circulation is comedic genius...

oh, and

6) Carnies freak me out. You know, circus folk. Small hands... smell like cabbage...

The real question is: Did you call 'dibs' on the backups of everyone on your roster? If so, then the guy who grabbed A-Train has clearly violated the 'I called it' rule.

Next time lick (literally, with your tongue) the backups of everyone on your roster. No one would dare pick up a player you've already licked.

I think I speak for everyone here when I say that no FF league victory is worth licking A-Train.

Edit: By the way, taking someone elses BU it not unethical. I have heard of leagues where each owner is granted first dibs on his player's BUs if his player gets injured, but unless you are in one of these leagues (and this was spelled out specifically before the draft), you can't complain. You took a risk by not handcuffing your starting RB, and now you are paying the price. Tough luck.

I agree w/ the consensus: all's fair in love & fantasy football. Hell, in my main $$ league, owners will DRAFT other owners' backups, i.e., Team 1 drafted Marshall Faulk, Team 2 drafted Stephen Jackson. No one even raises their eyebrows in this league since it's so competitive.

Sounds to me like this guy is outmanaging you! For that matter, the fact you are even concerned about a Bears running back is a head scratcher. Go trade for someone else!
