How would fantasy leagues handle a game getting cancelled? Just "tough" luck? What if the game is made up down the road (Unlikely since Bucs already had their bye).

Amazing how a bit of speculation can lead to a story.

Can't wait to see the excuses if the Eagles destroy them. "Our team is really sick right now, this wasn't fair"

It was a good attempt at a joke, unfortunately you don't know 'bout football.

Granted MRSA can be a pretty serious infection, but most people who aren't already sick and/or in the hospital aren't getting pneumonia (and possibly dying) from it. They likely have skin infections like that one guard or whatever. Yes, they should cover any affected areas and attempt to not transmit them, but postponing a game? Seems a bit much.
My motto for Fantasy Football: Don't get involved in Shanahanigans.

12 Team Standard PPR league: QB, 2RBs, 2WRs, TE, R/W/T Flex.
Week 15 (Playoffs!):
QB: Kaepernick,
RBs: Stacy, Murray, L. Bell,
WRs: A. Brown, Garcon, K. Allen, Gordon, Patterson
TE:,J. Thomas, Pitta
K: Hartley
DEF: CAR/KC/BUF

I thought they did a thorough cleansing of the Bucs facility in the offseason. Are players sharing each other's jock strap or something? Man the Bucs can't even keep their facilities clean much less their team together.

Can you imagine how horrible it would be to have to play on this team? Aside from all your money, of course. Your team is shockingly bad, your coach is a monster who videotapes the sidelines to ensure that no one is engaging in laughter or fun, and to wrap it all up, you might get a serious disease and have antibiotics pumped straight into your heart.

These particular strains of staph bacteria are extremely hard to kill. They would literally have to refloor and resurface the entire locker/shower facility, training area and gym, change out all the equipment, etc. and even then you can't be sure you've gotten rid of it.

Jerry Jones: Fan of Monkeys

A day after PETA called for animal control to seize Dez Bryant's pet monkey, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was asked whether he's had a chance to meet the wideout's monkey yet. "Missed the monkey," Jones said. "The monkey thing is pretty humorous. I am a monkey fan. I can stand in a zoo and look at them all day long and die laughing. My dad was in the wild-animal business and had over 5,000 wild animals. And he was always, no matter what, handing somebody a card and saying, 'Be sure to come out and visit my monkeys.'"

It's very obvious that some people here don't know what MRSA is. If they did they wouldn't talk so lightly about "just play the damn game".

Great week to own Doug Martin and DeSean Jackson. Well, after twenty years of playing this stupid game, an entirely new way for my team to get ******.
Saying Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time is like saying the guy who dominates boxing after headshots are outlawed is the greatest boxer of all time.

Interesting. So right now the TD to MRSA rate for TB is 4:3, what are the odds MRSA takes the lead by next week?

I'm guessing they probably try to move to some other stadium, but can't actually say they are trying to do so until another team or venue agrees to, thus proclaiming like it's business as usual.

Jacksonville's front office is probably licking it's chops right now with tank for Teddy. MRSA? No problem, come on over to our place, we'll get Blackmon and MJD to do the cleanup, don't worry.
