haha relax dude it's just a game. The thing that really gets me is that I used to be a pretty big gambler, and for some reason losing $300-$400 a weekend didn't piss me off HALF as much as having a garbage (1-5) team in my lousy $100 fantasy league with my idiot friends does!!!

This yeah has been a headshaker though. I've been playing fantasy football for 8 seasons and I can't ever remember a season like this!!! :~(

I've been pretty lucky so far this year....the only one I've lost is Javon Walker.

I can certainly sympathize with you, getting a solid team and then watching them fall like drunks out of a bar can be disheartening.

You just have to step up my friend, Cpep was my starter and he blew, but I grabbed Eli late in the draft so he is starting no problem. I have been without my #1 WR Burleson all season but my WRs almost rank 2nd in our league in scoring (12 Teamer). Thanks to Santana Moss stepping up. A good pickup of Joe Jerivicious before Jackson and Engram got hurt, and a waiver wire snag of Robert Ferguson.

You just have to find a way to pull through. Of course when you lose 4 of your first 5 picks like some teams do its time to pack it in and play for next season.

javon
deuce
houshmandzadeh
bulger
delhomme

these are all on one of my teams. still clinging to a 3-3 record.

for some of these guys, it's good to play opossum...make a stink about how "they're injured, but i won't sell THAT low on them." sometimes, you can actually get MORE than an injured player is worth when they're healthy. ;-D

Really. Let me tell ya about my last 24 hours. My cel fell into the toilet (off of my pocket), AFTER I did my duty.

Car broke down leaving me stranded 10 miles from home. I couldn't call because well, ha ha ha MY CEL FELL INTO THE TOILET.

Things can always be worse. 8-o
