I know I'm ahead by 6 right now, but yeah, barring a miracle, I am done.

Oh well, I think placing 5th and ending the regular season on a 5 game winning streak is a good way to go out.

Stafford running for the TD instead of Leshoure? You better believe I'm excited.

That miracle isn't as tough as you make it sound. Welker could have a setback, so he doesn't play, and New England could score a lot of points. I don't think your now 3.5 point lead is going to hold though.

So, the semi-finals participants along with their draft position are:

Yeo Momma - 14th
Bounty Hunting - 11th
The Fightin Midgets - 12th

and one of

Threshecutioners - 15th
Balls Deep - 2nd


The other playoff participants were:

For Liberty! - 7th
Tartan Titans - 8th
Lindley by Midseason - 10th

In other words, drafting early doesn't pay. 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th failed to make the playoffs.

If the score stays where it is right now, I am going to be absolutely sick to my stomach.

I should have benched Gates. **** YOU ANTONIO GATES!!!!

Anyone who drafts Antonio Gates next year is going to be mocked mercilessly by me.

Now I have to pray for some kind of huge stat correction that swings my way.

All that means is the draft is more than one round deep. Those middle rounds make or brake a team pretty quick.

On a side note:

My team waits until the freakin semi-finals to crap the bed. Reggie Wayne and D. Thomas didn't do a damn things today, first time all season they don't put up the #'s

You know, if the playofs had started this week, like they were supposed to, I would be dominating my way into the semifinals right now.

So yeah, consider this an official complaint about how the post season was handled. That kind of stuff should be set in stone at the start of the season.

Meh. I was surprised it wasn't set up like that by default. Hardly any leagues have a week 17 championship.

Well then it should have been set like that at the start of the season.

And dont mind me, just nailing an asterisk to this years trophy since I really should have had an actual shot at it with a week 15 playoff start.

there's no asterisk. Unless you consciously drafted your team because you somehow knew every player who would be still useful in week 17, this is just pointless whining.

I wholeheartedly agree. It is pointless, because it should never have happened in the first place. Probably should have been set up right the first time, but it wasnt, and went weeks before it got changed, so it should have just been left alone at that point. But it was not.

And remember, I'm not the only one who got screwed by the playoff start change. There was going to be an epic couple of "who gets in" games that were going to happen last week.

So yeah, my protest is two-fold in its purpose:
1. This whole thing is stupid so it deserves an asterisk.
2. This kind of crap can never be allowed to happen again.

And I raised this issue the day of it all getting changed. So it's not like I'm all of a sudden ticked off about things.

Avder just nominated himself to manage the league next year, it sounds like.

Sure I'd do it.

Besides if we're splitting into two 10 team leagues next year isn't Tyra designated for the lower tier league? He could be commissioner of that league and I could be commissioner of the other league.

That's if we can keep all 16 people we have now and get 4 more people. Two 8 team leagues would be... I dont know... total shootouts from what I can gather.

And do we go keeper or no keeper? Throw in an IDP?

Oh well, start figuring it out first week of the pre-season next year or something.

Story of my life

I thought it'd be cool to do a keeper league, maybe two players or something like that. Didn't know if we had the demand to split them up but that would screw with keeper, wouldn't it?

Twas a good season. Had a lot of fun. Glad the vast majority of people were active managers.

Congrats Fighting Midgets. Thoroughly whooped me in the championship game.

Maybe we should've kept the championship for week 17.. ( Avder)

It's a shame I couldn't have had a team that performed this well in my money league. It was a fun season, looking forward to next year.
