The guy is not going to do anything overally obvious because he has been busted doing this before and been punished by yours truly. After todays performance though his team got destroyed regardless of the QB thing...so no big deal.

I would think that not getting beat by your wife would be enough reason not to tank a game.

If my wife played in a league with me and we were going head to head, there are a few things that I could think of that she could bribe me with so that I wouldn't play my top lineup. ;-D

I'm going with the rest on this. There is no reason why he should have benched Collins, as everyone has seen Favre self destruct as of late, and especially in domes. Now if I would only have thought better and played Collins instead of McCown.... It seems Favre would have been the better choice looking back on it now, but Collins was every bit a starter as Favre was.

It is fine like everyone else has said, maybe if it was Alex smith over Favre... OK! We can see that, but Collins over Favre? Please. Also the rest of his lineup should have been a little skewed as well, not just the QB position. Just realx, if you have further questions about tanking, I reccomend you coming on here asking again. Everyone deserves to have their case heard first, if they are risking getting punnished.
