God I feel so bad for my newbie owner in my money league.

Postby awwchrist » Mon Sep 22, 2003 12:33 am

I get a good close friend of mine to help me out and take the vacant team in my money league. Its a small 2 keeper league and I talk it up real nice n purty like.

So without hesitation he accepts. I help him with his draft list (he never even followed the NFL that much prior, so of course this is gonna be interesting) and prep him on league rules, some parts of the game of football, general drafting strategy, etc. etc. etc.

He comes out wih a nice team. Arguably one of the top 3 rosters going into the season.

And then it happens...

THE touch of death. Worst case I have ever seen.

Vick

Nedney

Horn

Driver

and now...

Faulk.

Absolutely amazing.

He's since changed his team name to "1 ticket for the Titanic, please."

Waving the white flag yet Somegeek? ;-D

Wow, that is pretty damned bad, hehe.

He'll be dangerous later in the year, and at least he has Vick. Good for a keeper league :)

He'll be the team no one wants to play, because he'll spoil their playoff chances, even if he can't make it himself.

Rough luck.

/me shakes the magic 8-ball..... "yer screwed"

Eh - people are gonna get hurt... just so happend they're all mine. :P Still learning a lot from runnin this team and awwchrist is keeping an eye on me. Thanks man. Can't complain though - I did win our league last week and that was sweet cause I won against the week 1 winner. I'm play'n awwchrist now and I don't think Shannon Sharpe is gonna put up 33 points needed to beat him tonight. :P Time to look for some temp replacements...

/me wonders who else on my team has a ticket for the Titanic... Hmm...

Bad luck

That is really bad luck, but people do get injured and at least he doesn't have Travis Henry and Marvin Harrison. (I have both) Vick will come back and do good. It is just a matter of time.

Horn's injury wasn't too severe..I think week 2 he was questionable up until gametime..

still though..compiund that with the Driver injury...made for a short roster to work with.
