    That is a smart move. Joe is thinking outside the popcorn box.

    Now get it! I did not understand why Monroe aka Moose plays like an all-star. He wants desperately to earn new contract, he already knew his fate.

    I cant even remember the last time I opened a Piston thread to read it, but I saw THAT headline and was like WTF??????? :faint2:

    However, I wish I had been afforded afforded an opportunity to read the shocking news in the article before certain people (*cough* NEMO *cough) :ohwell: commented on it.

    All you had to do was read the article before you scrolled down the page. :)
    You were presented with Bill's post first, but I understand....how you got sidetracked.

    When I opened that thread for the first time it went right to the bottom. I'm not sure why it seems to do that...at least some of the time. :(

    I probably need to figure out how to change THAT as well as figure out how to get the threads to the top that I want to be at the top when I open up a forum. :frusty:

    At any rate, very shocking news!

    Understandable. South East Cannuckia is located somewhere near Australia. So with their time zone...I think it is around April 8th right about now. Give or take a day.
    Is that the reason why you always screw up on the draft times for our fantasy leagues and can't be there? That would certainly explain why your rosters look the way the do. :nerner::lol:

    hahahaahha..

    There is no "april fools day" here.. I mean, it's not in april, it's the 28th of december and is called "Innocents' Day" .. but the concept is the same.. haha

    Don't tell Laimbeer, but I missed the Keeper Draft this year.

    I hate to make excuses, but I will anyway. Injuries killed my Keeper team. My top 3 centers all went down (Lopez, Stoudamire, Pekovic). Gallinari went down. Even Kyrie Irving went down this week. If I had a nickel for every major player of mine that went down with an injury, well, I'd have several nickels.
