The guy who had him in my league left him on the bench.

Help me out and tell me who is started instead considering Martin came off a monster week where he put up 214 yards and 2 TD's against the Vikings last week?

Nope, I'm the guy who had him in my lineup.

I've already won and have both Vick and McCoy playing tonight as well.

Like Hammer said (he's in the same league as me), it's an absentee owner. Kinda sucks, but what can ya do.

I'm getting crushed this week. After starting out 6-0 I've dropped 3 straight. My team is pretty inconsistent.

I am the commissioner of my league and we have done a few things to combat the problem of guys that don’t care. As commissioner I usually poke them to find out what's up, if they are chronic problems we do gracefully move them out of our league at the end of the year to keep the integrity of competition intact. Also we have taken away the draft pick incentive for finishing last by having the "draft bowl". We have a 10 team league where the top 6 make the playoffs and the bottom 4 teams go into a seperate playoff where the bracket winner gets first draft pick, runner up gets 2nd pick, 3rd place winner of the draft bowl gets third pick and last place guy gets 4th overall pick. Then we seed picks 5 through 10 by how teams finished in the "championship playoffs"...........last pick goes to the champion etc.

Not saying it is perfect but it gives everyone a reason to stay engaged and try to win until the end and it does take away the incentive to tank.

I don't have Martin in our league, but I think you and I are playing this week.

Yeah you're up by 40pts on me and still have McCoy and Vick to play. You might get close to 200pts this week. I'm like...wtf...5 field goals from your kicker. Randall Cobb with 200 combined yards, dammit even your D returns a kickoff for a TD and gets you 20+ points.

I wonder if Jimmy Graham can score 80 points for me.

I basically rely on RGIII, Percy Harvin, and Larry Fitzgerald. The problem is that RGIII has a bad team in front of him, and Harvin and Fitz have iffy QB's behind them...

Under 20? OHL or NHL for you. However, if you've played a certain number of games in the NHL already, then you can play in the AHL. I believe that's why you see some under 20's in the AHL right now.

Holden is a veritable vault of knowledge on this stuff - I'm sure he'll chime in with a better explanation than mine, but that's the Cole's Notes version.

That's the jist of it right there. The CHL-NHL agreement is not in question at this point.

The CHL-NHL has made a special exemption for the lockout ONLY that any under 20 players that played all of last season in the NHL may head to the AHL this year. So just 19 year olds that played last year are applied to this as in Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. He is literally the only one who qualifies for that. This is why Nail Yakupov/Ryan Murray etc had to go to junior/Europe even though 99% they would have played in the NHL, they couldn't go to AHL since they needed to play the full season in the AHL last year.

Guys like Sean Couturier, Adam Larsson, Gabriel Landeskog would be AHL eligible anyways since they turn 20 before the end of the year, even though they were 19 to start the year.

There's a bunch of 18/19 year old guys like Victor Rask, Jonas Brodin, J.T. Miller, Zemgus Girgensons, Hampus Lindholm, Mike Zibanejad, Nikolai Prokhorkin in the league, but they all don't find themselves under the CHL-NHL agreement since none of them were drafted out of the CHL.

Was watching Castle tonight and noticed at least 7 or 8 Firefly references. I feel another marathon coming on...

Just heard this on the radio: 5 total hours of sunshine since October 14th.

I knew it had been cloudy the last few weeks, but wow.

Not that anyone cares about Toronto , but if it's any consolation, it's been pretty much the same here too.

I think there should be a 'make whole' proposal for the weather. In exchange for these cloudy weeks, some unseasonably warm December days!

Also, just want to throw out a friendly reminder to everyone: if you want to discuss the election, please do so in the dedicated politics forum.

What? No. I was in town for the last 6 days of October, and there was much more than 5 hours of sunshine during that time. Mind you, I was staying in God's Country, and it's almost always sunny out there
