Dooooh!

I'm pissed if this is a hoax. Oh well, I guess the jokes on us. Kudos to the crack research team though on digging up Betts as Portis's backup. ;-D

I'm taking a guess and saying this report was one of two things:

1. Someone at Sportsline or wherever this was "reported" was pulling a cruel joke on the masses, and it was discovered. He is now being fired as we speak.

2. Someone at the Cafe was pulling a cruel joke on the masses, and nothing was verified. He is now being carded and/or IP banned as we speak.

I hope it's the former, guys. :-?

Some people thought I was joking when I said Ricky retired. :-)

As for Portis, too bad for me. :-/ Damn bastards... whoever created this rumor should be beaten by hoards of angry Betts' owners.

I even own Rock Cartwright now for god sake.

It has to be. I doubt 10 guys got together and lied about a story on the NFL.com, CBSSportslines leagues.

Fake, carbon copy website tells me this was some pranksters who cooked the whole thing up to mess with FFootballers on the opening day of the season. Major sports media picked it up momentarily, until confirmation proved otherwise. But, that was enough to screw up a lot of FFootball rosters.
Kudos, you wacky, pranking geeks. Well done, I say. ;-D
Now after dropping McCardell, who am I going to pick up to replace starting RB Ladell Betts? (rhetorical question)
