53 Days To Go…

I’ve DONE IT!

My fantasy football league has finally filled with managers. Since I got this job, I’ve been exposed to a whole new set of individuals who may or may not be into that sort of thing. I threw an email out to the agents today, and one of them came back and wanted in. The field is full! 8 teams, diverse, 11 roster spots, individual defensive player, PPR/PPA/PPC. A flex (W/R/T) spot, and a HUGE flex spot (Q/W/R/T). See what I mean? I’ve been planning this for a long time, and even had a FULL season test run with the first Detail Oriented league. This year, no mechanical issues, just clean good fuck yeah fun.

I’ve been asleep, waiting for the NFL to come. All this World Cup horeshit gets me laughing. What a retarded sport. It’s a sport decided by a MINIMUM of action, often resulting in scoreless ties, which then are resolved with this fucking penalty kick type thing. It’s insane. And they fake injury, and the refs go right along with it. Their sport is corrupt, slow, boring and idiotic. The NFL is in a class all its own. With STUNNING athletics, talented position players, and unique, chess-like roles, maneuvers, plays, scripts and movements all calculated, pondered and second guessed by hundreds of staff. Players strive, dive, leap and hurl themselves in amazing, heart-pounding ways, every single season. I can’t tell you how authentically amazing the NFL is. And by no means do I condone the violence and thuggery that goes on in the NFL, and the devious lying and tactics and arrests and all of that. I’m aware of it. No one’s perfect. I don’t hold the sport responsible for it’s players, and the NFL has integrity in areas where most other sports don’t compare. It’s not an argument, but a statement of fact.

Peace be with you travelers. My league being full will no doubt render me capable of mocking until my head blows up. In fact, I’m about to go do that right fucking now. See ya. Oh, and by the way, I draft 3rd.

  1. When it comes to agreeing with the rest of the world on something, I think Most people would say variety in sports is eremitic. All sports have their place in society, and preference doesn’t effect a sports appeal. After all, it is merely entertainment.

    • I understand yours to be the more even, fair-minded approach. But I have a severe bias against unsatisfactory sports, or corrupt institutions. More often than not, the management side of sporting leagues is flawed by greed and self-interest. That’s all I really stand for in this regard.

      • That trait could be said about all owners of all teams in all sports. But I guess I see what you’re getting at. I tend to look past the hustle and bustle of buying, selling, and trading humans as if they’re commodities or trading cards. But then again that’s part of the fun. (You mostly only see those issues in team sports, though. Golf and Tennis have fewer such issues, and would be a better example of the joy you can experience from a sport as a spectator.) My main unabridged point, however, would be that if you can look past those things in a certain way (i.e. Playing the game with ftiends) you can find more beauty in the process.

      • I pipe off only because of my biased annoyances. But seriously dude, you got the #1 pick overall in the draft, I NEED to pick your brain about who you are going with. J. Charles?

      • Oh yeah, I can understand that.

        Jamal is enticing, but I kind of think last year was a fluke. A fluke in the sense that he did SO well when he only should have done about 70% of that. Like 2012 Adrian Peterson and 2013 Peterson. I’m thinking someone who is consistently active, like L’Shawn McCoy or Beast Mode.

      • McCoy is an equally decent pick. I wouldn’t count on Beast Mode to have a repeat season with Russel Wilson coming into form. But I agree with some of your Jamaal Charles fears. He can be stellar, but he could just as easily be hurt or trapped in an ineffective offense. Guess we’ll have to wait and see…
