We have guys give up in our league every year. It's kind of pathetic really. We've talked 2 habitual "quitters" into leaving and hopefully have replaced them with better players, but time will tell.

The goofy thing is, it's only a ten team league. I mean, you only have to make the top 4 teams by week 14 to make the 2 week playoffs.

I have found that if you charge 250$ a person and throw out a grand for first place that people will not give up. :)

Haha, yeah that may change perspective a bit I bet!

We only buy in for $50, and we're all friends in a 10 team league. Of course every waiver/trade move is $2 so that adds up as well.

Well despite these success stories, I would say it is (obviously) preferable to have better records than opposed to poor ones as my 5-0 team last year ended up winning at all, while the 1-4 team missed the playoffs. However I have started 1-3 and ended up reaching the championship game 2 years ago so I agree don't give up on your team despite a poor start.

Thats the game...
My team is solid but I ran into the perfect storm of a team on Sunday: (10 teamer)

His team consisted of:
Flacco
Mc Fadden & Fred Jackson
Welker & Calvin

He blew the top off the week and doubled me up. I could have beaten anyone else in the league.. I am 1-2 with a solid squad..

My Team:
Schaub / Romo
Turner / Mendenhall / Felix
AJ / V-JAX / Jennings / Henderson
Gates / J Graham
Pitt

Thats football...
