    You look hungry, Bill. Would you like something to eat?

    Not this week my friend.

    I love Steals! :)

    I also love Wart's record in FG% (13-0) and 3PM (0-13).

    The percentages and turnovers are always my undoing year after year.

    And the reason Motown's team is so good? He has a winning record in every category except turnovers. Now that's a balanced squad!

    I was wondering why I seemed to be playing you twice in a couple of weeks.

    I've been paying attention to percentages this season. FT's have worked out better than FG. SJax has always been sort of a chucker but he's been killing me since LB bailed.

    IMO, there's little to be said about turnovers. It's the very last stat I look at and has never deterred me from drafting or picking up a FA.

    My draft strategy of ignoring blocks has worked to perfection...headed to 0-14 :thumb[1]: lol

    I still think a TO:Assist ratio would make way more sense

    My team sucks lately. Fortunately this past week webz sucked more. Unfortunately we play this week and the least sucky will take over third place.

    Perhaps you are not giving enough credit to the team that demolished webz last week....

    Nah...I've seen that team and dba is correct...Webzie just sucked.


    [STRIKE]Kirk[/STRIKE] Kimmee: When you jettisoned [STRIKE]the fuel and ignited it[/STRIKE], your players and picked up injured fantasy studs (Camby and Mo Williams)you knew there was virtually no chance of [STRIKE]it being seen[/STRIKE] winning the championship, yet you did it anyhow. That would seem to be an act of desperation.
    [STRIKE]Spock[/STRIKE]Darth: Quite correct, Kimmee.
    [STRIKE]Kirk[/STRIKE]Kimmee: We all know, and I'm sure that Webzie agrees, that desperation is a highly emotional state of mind. How does your well-known logic explain that?
    [STRIKE]Spock[/STRIKE]Darth: Quite simply, [STRIKE]Captain[/STRIKE] Kimmee. I examined the problem from all angles, and it was plainly hopeless. Logic informed me that, under the circumstances, the only possible action would have to be one of desperation. Logical decision, logically arrived at.

    Come on now, I wasn't that bad - just a little unlucky. Only the foolish would simply look at the result and not the underlying stats.

    5 categories I lost were very close and of the 6 main stat categories I was top 4 in five of them for the week. Retribution is about to be unleashed. :gun1:

    Darth, you#re a fantasy monster, the second Roy was said to be coming back he was on your squad. How do you that?

    Thanks, Ralphie. Let's see if you can guess the answer.

    (A) I have no life

    (B)Pure luck/ Right place at precisely the right time

    (C) I'm one hell of a fantasy guru.

    (D) Both A & B









    The correct answer is "D"

    I'll vouch for that. I recently had to change my Verizon text message package from 500 msg a month to 1500 msg a month due to the fact that I apparently don't have much of a life either or I am hopelessly addicted. I however seem to be risk averse unlike Darth and would rather allow injured players continue to play injured on my team and then fall off by attrition, and then spend many hours trying to figure out how to find a guy who will give me 1 steal, 1 assist, 1 3, not ruin my %s and get over 4 pts a game to replace a top 100 player.

    That said, the $15 a month I now pay to analyze all of this in great detail and maximum investment with Darth over our text messaging systems I think is well spent. When you consider all the other ways I might be harming myself and society, it's fairly innocent.

    Now let me get back to my minute analysis of Paul George: is he trending toward amounting to anything worthwhile this season or is this just another act of desperation?....Darth?...(texting...texting...why did you drop him?...oh?...oh?...well you never have any patience...texting texting...i'm going to give him another 2 games...texting...texting......LMAO...)

    My team is way too much looking forward to the all-star break. Too many guys have their heads on a beach.

    We are pretty amped about the return of Okafor and Noah post all-star break.

    That's what we said last year before someone whooped him in the playoffs.

    I do enjoy saying whooped.

    I didn't finish with the best record last year dba, that was Webz. But I agree, regular season means nothing. I won't be excited unless I win the Finals if I'm fortunate enough to make it. Lots of solid GMs in the league!

    Honestly, this was probably my best draft ever. I was lucky to land a bunch of high performing sleeper picks.
