    I know you guys love fantasy football but you do realize it is helping to kill the NFL right? It is making them put in another round of Peytonization turning the NFL into the NBA with a few blockers.




    you've been listening to Mike & Mike too much. it's because--the Broncos got beat up in the SB. the legion of boom mugged them just as the Patriots did the Rams.  Sure Manning did his share of whining about it. and again gets what he wants.

    We are but a speck of sand on the beach of fantasy football so might as well enjoy it.

    Besides, we aren't the fantasy players that are causing this issue. We all know the game and enjoy watching in regardless of scoring. Whether my fantasy team wins with a score in the 80s (like in the early 00's) or in the 140s (like last year) doesn't bother me. What is causing these flags is the casual fans who wouldn't care about the game if the points weren't flying around, so don't lump all fantasy players together. That's sort of like blaming long time action movie fans for Micheal Bays over the top explosion movies at the expense of story. They enjoy action movies regardless of the explosion fest, Bay knows he already has them so he targeting those who want to leave a theater who say, my what amazing effects.



    I am sure you are right and I was more lamenting the demise of football than anyone having some fun. Though the symptoms also boil over in discussions here when some fans assess players and teams (and BB) more based on their fantasy experiences.

    Hey TFB12, I'm not sure how many are on the waiting list, but if the keeper league doesn't happen (which it doesn't look like it will) maybe you could offer a spot in benchwarmers to TheJuice1? He said he'd play in any league

    I think I have heard Mike & Mike for 5 or 6 minutes at a time a handful of times in the past 2 years. No, my comments are based on the money flowing through fantasy football. And I do not object to anyone having fun with it. I am more lamenting the demise of the NFL and football as it turns into basketball. And it does seem that fantasy football is a real factor.

    A side effect is that many here base their "football" assessments on what seems to be a fantasy football basis even though they would never admit it or perhaps dont even realize.

    To me that's just a red herring. People have been asking for big name players long before fantasy football became popular and for the most part a lot of people like scoring regardless if they play fantasy football or not. In the end the O has been an issue in the post season (so has the D but less so in comparison to the O at times) so it's logical people would look for a solution to this problem. However, people always look for a scapegoat and fantasy football is an easy one. It's easy to dismiss someones argument for needing more offense when you believe it's because they play fantasy football so no need to discuss it further. Doesn't matter if they are looking at an O that falls apart in the postseason they just want fantasy numbers. If you keep a more open mind and listen to their reasoning you might find that fantasy stats have nothing to do with it as much as people either just want a player though know about or a player they see as a possible solution to a problem. I know we all love to see BB take a bunch of 2nd stringers and win games with them but you do need some higher level talent on the field when it's critical and that's been missing at times, can you blame people for wanting to find that upper level talent again in a league that seems to be driving more towards O than D?

    4 spots remaining. I'm waiting to hear from JoePatsFan. Or we can do a 10 team league, so 2 spots remaining. You're still playing in it right?

    A week or two ago in John Clayton' mailbag column, a fantasy guy wrote in about his league prohibiting its members from drafting Ray Rice. He said the league was doing it to take a stand against domestic violence

    No, I'm not kidding

    Fantasy leaguers making political statements?

    Okay, now Ive officially heard everything...

    Yeah, I'm definately not drafting him. I can't root for someone like that to do well. If I drafted him, he'd be on my bench every week despite how well he is playing

    I like it, lol. 

    I noticed in my live draft last weekend where I got together with a bunch of friends, ray rice was passed on for a very long time until someone desperate for a rb finally took him. He went way, way lower then he normally would have. I certainly wasn't going to draft him.

    Unless my connection cuts out and I autodraft him there isn't a chance I'm using a pick on him

    lol depends on when it happens. In the 6th or early it would really suck, if it was like the 12th round, well just cut him and pick up a waiver, not a big deal.
