I like that analogy; I'll nit-pick that this scenario would be more like paying him to give me the ball openly, but the principle is the same. Thanks for your help and amazement.
Uh...and, for those who think five dollars isn't so big a deal, it's a bit bigger in this league since the pool is only forty dollars. I gave up an eighth of my potential winnings for Plaxico
--and, considering the WRs I had before, I think I got a pretty good deal. Trades involving money have since been prohibited...so I guess that makes me an ethics trailblazer. (Feel free to get in your "last word" as a snappy retort to that idea, if you like.)
