ESPN's laughable fantasy special

Postby dgan » Wed Aug 22, 2007 8:20 pm

I'm surprised no one has posted about this. I happened to be at Chili's so I caught parts of it for about an hour. I had a few...er...many problems with it.

1) It was an 8 team league. Enough said.

2) I don't think they once gave the scoring system. I'm sure they gave roster spots, but I missed that.

3) They had D-list celebrities as some of the owners.

4) They had Sean Salisbury as one of the owners.

5) Carson Palmer I think was the first QB taken...in the first round.

6) One of the owners didn't take a RB with his first 4 or 5 picks.

7) Most of what I caught was a bunch of yelling at each other that they didn't know what they were doing.

8) None of them knew what they were doing.

That's just what I caught on-and-off in an hour. If someone else was able to stomach through more of it, I would love to laugh at your commentary on this hideously ridiculous television event.

i seen lil bit of it but honestly i couldn't tell you who picked who and where, because i didn't pay attention to it really ... only thing i could remember was yelling and they were talking about doing a trade for one of the D celebreties wife. I can't remember his name but he has a twin brother, they are both actors ... Conner or something like that

I saw this as well, the 8 team league was a joke and many of the picks were questionable. I'm pretty sure I saw Brian Westbrook slip to the 3rd round.

They must not have advertised it very much this year.

In the two prior years we did live commentary here at the Cafe while the show was occurring, lampooning every miserable pick. ;-D

I'm pretty sure I saw a thread about this in Football Leftovers. Palmer got taken like 6th or 7th overall, right? :-b
The cake is a lie.

JA Adande went back to back TE in the 6th and 7th rounds. I think he took Vernon Davis and Jason Witten while Ronnie Brown was still on the board!

A couple guys knew what they were doing and had good drafts and then there were guys like Adande. :-b !+)

When Ronnie Brown falls to the 7th round, nobody knows what they're doing.

Yeah I was going to say that. How was he there? Although if guys like that were falling so much, waiting until the 4th rd to take a RB wasn't a horrible idea.
