yeah ive wondered about some ppl who have posted here and many other places boasting about records and whatnot.....and i wondered the same thing....was this a competative league, or is this a league where half the teams are inactive as you play teams that are starting players on bye, and you are stock piling free agenst cause hardly anyone else is competing.
all i know is that my second year with the same guys in our 8 team league i am in, has 7 very active owners and 1 guy who doesnt do much with adds and drops, but he keeps his roster updated weekly and still wins about half of his games.
if you play in a somewhat dead league i guess its not your fault cause i suppose it can be hard to find a quality league, but if your beating dead teams week in and week out, then thats no challenge.
around mid season of my rookie year i did join 3/4 extra mid season leagues and I had awesome records in those, but i was playing against dead teams, and also there was little competiton for picking up free agents......i did it mainly to see if i could learn anything in terms of fantasy experience, but those leagues were really not fun.....so this year i stuck to just 1 league and i am having a blast, cause its so competative
