I guess I'll kick this thread off.

The draft date for my league has been changed four times now. Why can't these knuckleheads just set up a date and roll with it? I go through the same thing every year.

Maybe those people want that player to get passed on so they can land the player themselves.

The Madden Curse is scary so I traded megatron for McCoy in one of my dynasty leagues. Hopefully I dont come to regret that, it was pretty painful.

I'm a huge fan of the Lions, but i'm a fan of winning too. I had Redman and Kevin Smith as my RBs....I had no choice. I drafted a bunch of good WRs.

Ehhh, i'll believe it when I see it. He mostly dis his damage against 2nd and 3rd team defenses. I'm definitely interested to see how he does against a 1st team defense.

I think Matt Flynn will still end up with the starting job.  T.O. catches those passes and Flynn would have looked golden.

Give T.O. a little more time to get accustomed to the offense, he literally just got there.
