    Really. I've been reduced to trolling on the Indianapolis Star website trying to see if Troy Murphy will ever play. And while the following quote isn't exactly good news, it is kind of funny.


    "He can't lean on anybody or have anybody lean on him," Pacers coach Jim O'Brien said. "It's the NBA, people are going to lean on you."

    Well, I took advice from several Advanceds and I dropped Josh Howard in what I thought was a brilliant resolute move...add Raja Bell...a good ol' Phoenix hand shooting 3's in Nellie's non-system.........wait....what's this little yahoo updated note about my new shooting guard?...and something here from webz?....

    And that my fine sirs is how the Aurora Franchise Daily League got in two FA steps from Josh Howard to...Raja Bell....to...Earl Boykins. I'll have to look into whether this is reversible. :pound:

    BDL, it is the essence of wisdom to be teachable. I humble myself now before my Elders so that in the immediate future the Squirrels will be hit HARD by the Smooth Criminals....

    (buh buh buh da buh buh buh da buh buh buh da buh buh)

    YOU'VE BEEN HIT BY...A SMOOTH CRIMINAL...

    whaow!

    Interesting thing was that Bell actually played the other day. I thought he was trying to make a liar out of me. But as far as I can see he is still having surgery and only played cos the Waz only had 7 guys in uniform.

    I've forwarded this post to coach Rufus and he responded with an insult filled tirade featuring lots of cussing and language that just didn't seem appropriate to share here in the advanced thread.

    I smell a rivalry brewing between the Squirrels and the Criminals.

    ...as GM, I'll be responding soon with a significant transaction that will break your spirit and severely hinder your will to compete.

    You guys should make wagers on the game like the governors do from different States when their teams play each other.

    If the criminals win the match, BDL can send Aurora his nuts.

    If the Squirrels win, Aurora can send BDL one of Iverson's prison issued autographed jockstraps.

    My God is Allen Iverson in prison for wanting to be a starter? Stern has really cracked down on this League. I mean I knew they wanted to get him out of it, because he's like the Anti-Jordan, and ushered in the Hip-Hop era (tattoos, do-rags, gang inspired clothing) but prison? Just for refusing to sit on the bench?Man, that's harsh. Well, do they allow visitors per chance?:) Or is in solitary for this feloniousness?

    They do allow visitors but there is nowhere to sit down and chat. He had all of the benches removed. ;)

    I do not get it. Sitting on the bench had to be punishment for AI? :nerd2:

    You know, if I had more than three guys who figured out the season had started and shot more than 30% that first week the Sprockets wouldn't have gotten skunked and things would look a lot different now. Without week one we're 16-10-1 which would be good enough for third place overall.

    geez, I expected Motown to beat me, but this hard? I was pretty surprised to see my team ending up losing 7 -2 and I start to get worried about the PO's...
    and how is someone supposed to win with less games every week - as far as I remember, I've had less games in each of my matchups this far.

    You shouldn't have picked guys that play only 70 games.
