hey guys, I was without power all weekend after a tornado hit here in Ottawa. 

Wasn't able to get my lineup set and Mosley was left in. Not sure when he was declared inactive but if I could maybe get a grace for this one? 

 

I'm cool with a warning, but wouldn't mind not having one either haha

 

For the record, you didn't get a warning for Mosley being in because he wasn't officially ruled out until he was made inactive that Sunday.

 

I completely agree with Drake's rationale.  Considering the circumstances, you wouldn't have been penalized.

Looking for RB help with another Ine going down to an ACL. Would move my '19 firsts and/or young guys, want to keep core in tact.

@JMak and I have a trade:

 

Detroit Diesels get:

Lesean McCoy + Chris Ivory

 

Need Some Wood? gets:

Jay Ajayi

Corey Clement

The better of either Soulcrusher's or Ironcock's 2019 first round pick.  (Commish - I'm assuming we can do this?)

 

JMak to confirm.

The Ballad of James and Rico

 

On August 13, 2017, the Detroit Diesels attempted to select with the 11th pick of the 3rd round of a rookie draft Dallas Cowboys’ tight end Rico Gathers.  There was only one problem: Gathers wasn’t a rookie.  The ensuing re-pick is one that won’t soon be forgotten in the history of Where Legends are Born.  The story is retold below in lyrical form, and is to be sang to The Ballad of John and Yoko.

 

[Ultimately, Conner was dropped by the team who picked him with the re-pick, which I admit takes something from the tale.  I thought about making it a "boy meets girl, boy gets girl, boy loses girl to an @Iron-cock" sort of story (which was more realistic) but I've taken some poetic license here.]

 

In any event, I present this as my paean to Rotoworld’s best dynasty league.  I hope you enjoy it.

 

See this giant crossing the middle
Jumps and catches just like a Bear
The preseason beat
They like Rico so sweet
Wish they’d keep quiet about this whole affair

 

Christ, you know it ain’t easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are goin’
Someone will snake him from me

 

He’s gonna fill the void left by Witten
All those targets are up for grabs
He plays with such Power
Forward march every hour
He’s gonna be the next Gates or Graham!

 

Christ, you know it ain’t easy
I need Gathers on my team
The way things are goin’
I’m gonna fulfill this dream

 

Can’t believe he fell to the late third
How did all these other guys pass?
Oh no - they say he’s no rook!
This stud that I took!
He’s actually part of the Sixteen Class!

 

Christ, you know it ain’t easy
Just wanted to draft this T-E
I guess that I know now
Why he “fell” down to me

 

Still smarting from the loss of my Suave prize
Feeling all the taunts of the league
Replacement selection?
For all my dejection
I still got to make another pick here, think!

 

Heading back to dynasty websites
Wish I had a hug from my mama
Feel I’m in hell, cause
No name is ringing a Bell
Wait – what’s with Le’Veon’s latest drama?

 

Christ, you know it ain’t easy
This draft is turning up rough
The way things are goin’
I’m gonna draft a handcuff

 

Took this backup guy out of Pittsburgh
Looks like this kid James Conner can ball
Between the tackles he’s boss,
Catches a Big Ben toss,
I knew it’d all work out after all!

 

Christ, you know it ain’t easy
Best to be a bit lucky
The way things are goin’
The last laugh’s coming from me
The way things are goin’
Got a number one R-B.

Congratulations to @Ironcock on essentially ending my season.

 

My trade block is officially open.  I'd like to keep my long-term assets together but if you see something on my squad that can help you this year and you want to send me a piece or pieces for the future, hit me up by PM.

Good game.  Of course I would have rather won last year!
