So...I'm up by one point in my Fantasy Football league, with Steven Ridley and the New England Defense left to play, and the guy I'm playing has Tom Brady left.

Slam dunk win for me....

To bad we're all busy watching a real sport where there is action on a consistent basis and they play through the pain instead of watching a snoozefest where the players try fake injuries and complain about every little thing.

Sounds like you watch the real game of football as well. Join the club, who is your favourite team? Bayern Munich, Barca, or are you part of the Manchester fanclubs'?

^ also can't forget about baseball and how a little finger makes a player miss a month of action.

Ronaldo show Chet some clips of Messi's determination.

Stupid me how can I forget mister perfect

A real athlete in a real sport. Everyone bask in his glory.



This his my favorite of his 250ish goals(because I was watching the as it happened). I think I've watched it over 20 times I even know what the commentator says word for word lol.



This is the best goal he's scored. You all can blame SEPH for getting me started on the love of my life.

I'm pretty neutral considering the Bundesliga. I do love German players though and Bayern Munich has some of my favourite in Gomez, Neuer, and Schweinsteiger. I love these guys and Bayern is a pretty respectable team to cheer for, but they're not my favourite. Actually lately I've been watching some Hamburg games and they have a really fun to watch and an insane fanbase.

Just got home. Seemed to me that all the wind got sucked out when the refs blew 2 PI calls on the drive right after they got the ball back from the safety. The second was the worst, Tamme catches that easily and it's a 9-0 game instead of 5-0. But the refs held the whistle.

And both Thomas and Decker need to spend more time after practice on catching the ball. Too many easy catches were dropped.

Too many drops, got too far behind, and not a sharp Peyton.

Its not like were getting outmatched in these games, just poor execution (which is somewhat optimistic for the future).

Exactly. The Broncos just could not execute in the past two games.

Man...that "Bulls**t" chant in the New England/Baltimore game is hilarious.

Nothing that NBC can do about it, because it's the fans that are chanting it, and are chanting it quite loud, and you know that some uptight group like the PTC will be raising all hell about it tomorrow.

I meant to say it last week, but every week this could apply - Joe Mays is horrible.

The dude is all big hit or nothing. Misses assignments and tackles all the time. Tries to throw his shoulder or helmet into every dude on the field. That's pretty much his entire game.

It's honestly too bad he didn't get suspended a game or two so we could watch someone take his job.

I highly doubt he's on the team next year. I've never been impressed with him.

That's an INT and OPI on Tate, finally the replacement refs decided the outcome of a game.

Wow. The Green Bay vs Seattle game was decided again by the replacement refs. What a nightmare situation.

The rules say that if both players are in possession of the football that the offensive player is given the nod; however, it sure looked like, to me, that Green Bay had the ball.

So, does Jim Tracy stay or go

If they've already announced they're going with a 4 man rotation for next year I'm thinking he's staying

They already said they will go with 5 man rotation. Each gets like 90~100 pitches I believe, and will have 3 piggy back relievers which makes no sense because SP will probably get to the 6 or 7 innings if they're efficient so you don't really need 3 long relievers, but whatever. Before Jim Tracy goes, Dan O'Dowd needs to go first. I have my doubts that Monforts will actually can O'Dowd though.

Dan O' will never be gone under current management. We have to have an owner change before a new gm.

So anyone else find it completely ridiculous that Rosario basically has no chance to win the NL ROY year award?

He is the leader in RBI, HRs and OPS but yet because he plays a demanding defensive position and hasn't excelled defensively he gets knocked out of the race. Which I find completely baffling that the voters would knock a player out of the race for defensive play when they voted Braun over Tulo a few years back. Braun was so poor as a 3rd basemen they moved him to least demanding positron on the field LF (expect at Coors where RF is the least demanding due to the way the ballpark is built) and he still stunk it up. Where as Tulo played the most demanding position on the field and was a denfensive wizard. Not to mention both had similar offensive numbers but somehow they gave the award to a defensive liability who was probably on HGH.

So basically all this means is if you are a good team, and you put up OK numbers you have a chance to win an award. But if you play on a bad team and put up big numbers like 27 HRs, and 70 RBI in minimal playing time (people forget he has like 100 less ABs than most of the other top rookies) you don't have a chance. What a joke Rosario should either win the award or at minimum be top 2 but he probably won't even finish top 5.

He was horrible at defense. I think he should be third in the voting, because he played some of the worst defense I've ever seen.
