Re: What is the standard for vetoing a trade?

Being an awful drafter is or could be as harmful to a team or league as bad trades ;do we then infer that you will veto draft picks ? should I have vetoed every pick in leagues where I waited calmly while people snapped up doctson and treadwell while I walked down the hill and drafted thomas ? shoul...

Re: Kaepernick vs NFL - Collusion

Kaep has already come out and said he would stand for the anthem. Sure, the protest he started is ongoing, but I doubt the dogfighting rings Vick participated in just folded up because Vick stopped participating. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2737554-colin-kaepernick-says-he-will-stand-for-nat...

Re: Worried about? Sammy edition...

So far I have started him every week except for week 3, but I am sitting him this again this week. I am sure he will top 25 fantasy points on my bench. I am a bit worried, I figured after a couple of games with the Rams he would be a decent target hog but that hasn't happened at all. Edit: this is ...

Re: Kaepernick vs NFL - Collusion

The cover up is almost always worse than the crime. Once he's been given his fair due everyone would move on to the next thing to talk about. You really think that if a team brought in Colin Kaepernick and Blake Bortles (or Matt Moore) and decided to go with the latter that the media and SJWs would...

Re: What is the standard for vetoing a trade?

sounds pretty bassakwards so in real life anything goes but in fake football your code of rigidity is unwavering- lmao that is why I outgrew libertarians in my early 20s . Perhaps you will be so lucky liberty as defined by our constitution and founding fathers has been so bastardized that were the f...

Re: Kaepernick vs NFL - Collusion

Not sure why you keep saying he didn't get a chance - he opted out of a big$ deal in san fran of his own choosing, that was after starting several games while making his point about the protest. If the niners benched and cut immediately him after his protest then he may have a complaint to be heard ...

Re: Kaepernick vs NFL - Collusion

I posted this in the weekly discussion thread some has been covered and addressed but thought I would add in this thread why any sympathy for kaep he really isn't that good - much like RG3 a gimmicky qb that the league caught up to , and unless you have a team that is a serious contender why would a...

Re: When to blow it up?

If I have a really solid team I will not retool it until I am eliminated from the play off picture. My 3 time defending champ sig team started 0-3 I was a bit nervous but have reeled off 3 straight and was top scorer this week by 30+ ,patience will win out most likely if you have a solid roster. If ...

Re: Martavis Requests Trade

the whole offense is still foundering as a whole because ben seems a bit jittery in the pocket compared to how he has played for the last decade or so . The timing & accuracy of the passing game is screwed up as a whole and the steelers are 4-2 despite playing pretty damned poorly on offense. Tomlin...

why any sympathy for kaep he really isn't that good - much like RG3 a gimmicky qb that the league caught up to , and unless you have a team that is a serious contender why would any owner/coach want the circus that will tag along with him. People will say green bay but that team isn't very good; rod...

Re: New line of thinking...

I think top speed is important but the size speed combo is very important and the real thing for me is and I noticed most recently with fast willie parker that name was always a misnomer to me as yeah he was fast but what made him most dangerous was how quick he was to top speed . If a guy gets to t...

Re: What is the standard for vetoing a trade?

How do bad owners ruin bad leagues? With bad trades. A veto is a protection against a bad owner ruining a good league. But what happens when bad owners veto? A veto doesn't protect the league. It protects the vetoer's best interests. Period. Everybody who is casting a veto vote is 100% biased. If t...

Re: What is the standard for vetoing a trade?

Benjamin Franklin once said: "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety." this is that in a nutshell ^^^^ , vetoes are rooted in 100% self interest and jealousy. They are a hallmark of a weak league and weak owners ! The veto...
