    I had a bad feeling I'd be matching up with you (once the seeding had already determined). After losing to you just a couple weeks ago I realized your team is probably the worst match up for me.

    Good luck.

    Next year's Advanced league will be called "Stop #1". It looks like it will take a concerted effort. We can do it.

    Having said that, Kudos to to Drebaby's for keeping it close. Looks like its going down to the wire.

    Yes I am still bitter about losing by one block and one 3Pt shot.

    Congrats #1, unfortunately, I can't get beyond the my company's "fantasy blocked firewall" on my laptop to see the final results until return home tomorrow night, but I figured since you held the lead from day one>10 days ago, it would take a miracle finish to beat ya. In fact I thought it was over last Friday and was about to give up, but my guys put up good fight Monday and I think I had an outside shot of pulling it out tonight. As indicated I'm not sure how they did Tuesday or tonight.

    I know TMac and Nene sat it out tonight, but at this point not sure if they had would have had enough assists or rebounds in them to grab those two categories. Your boys could really score, so I wasn't worried trying to comeback there and you only need 5 categories to win. My concern was the shooting% in both the FG and FT and if my team could shoot straight in the end. I have never made so many transactions in one week as I did last week to try to stay close to you.

    Good game, lets do it again next year!!

    Man, it was close. You ended up taking the REB and AST categories of the past couple days and I barely came back and took the FT% cat.

    A little bit of luck and a whole lot of skill. :cheerleader:

    #1 is just the real deal. He is a good fantasy player. He is the bar and it is set high. lol...:pound: We all just need to come in next season and work harder to build more competitive teams and perhaps even learn from #1. He took a lot of risks and made good moves that paid off the second half of the season when it mattered.

    He may as well change his name to #2 right now because he is already underestimating the powers of the Dark side.

    #1 can be beaten and I'll be the one to do it. It won't require everyone jumping on him either, just a little bit more luck with health and some timely waiver pickups. I'm not worried. I experimented with two different strategies this year. One of my strategies netted me 3 championships this year, the other had me fall short twice. We'll be ready to rumble next year. :gun1:

    So which of the two strategies will you be using? :nerd2::pound:

    And after you stop #1, I'll be waiting to finish YOU off.

    Just got back home and saw the final results. 5-4 !!!!dang if I had some better shooters on my team, I could have taken you. But you da man, good battle and congrats again on the back to back!

    I am pinning this close loss on two players: my perennial allstar, La Bron James who's free throwing shooting for the week was 18-31 (58.6%) and probably caused me to lose the FT shooting category and then some scrub I picked up for one game named Craig Smith who shot 1-10 the night I had him, after shooting 14/22 the previous two games. Of course some of that blame can go to fantasy kings Kevin Martin and Charlie Bell who provided monster stats in most categories but shot just around 40% for the long week.

    Despite what main man joe, Mo and Darth, winless, etc say, I will be there with them trying to detrone you too.

    You're a good man Dre.

    You can tell a lot about a man in how he handles defeat You're definitely a winner in my book. You lost, but with class and graciousness.

    I'll almost regret beating the tar out of your team next year.:MusicBigGrin:

    Man the difference between him and me in the last two years is 2 3Pt shots and 1 block. That's right. 2 more 3Pt shots and 1 more BL, and you might be calling FD two time repeat champ. So somehow I've just got to figure out that little something something that will get me by him. No big changes, just a little more focus, energy. Next year he'll be so drunk on success, he won't even notice the rest of us passing him by.

    But he is good...

    Dude, you weren't even in the elite 4 this year. Something like 0-8 against the top 4 teams. You should worry about how ya gonna get in there next year. Leave the champ alone. He doesn't have time for you second tier guys.

    Just a little pre-ramble for what you can expect next year, if you bring back that same lame stuff.

    Champion of sixth place finishes. But really, it was fun sparing with you this year. Looking forward to next year, especially match-ups with MP, #1 and Webz (we have unfinished business).

    Its been a good year.

    Congrats to #1.
