    Are you in the same league as me? I think I saw that notification in email. Actually it was originally 5 for 1, but that one was denied.

    I didn't get to pick my team, and it stinks, so it's not a big deal. I didn't vote. I also won't screw anybody else over by trading the few players I do have away though.

    That trade went through? How? Well, that's one less team I have to update each week.

    Starter in most leagues, Starter in most leagues, Starter in some leagues and a crap guy for an injured guy.

    Nope. Not fair.

    That's too much for McFadden. He'll be back soon, but his numbers will probably take a hit with Palmer starting. Benson is pretty useless though. I don't know how Bowe's going to fare with Palko.
    If you ask me how I want to be remembered, it is as a winner. You know what a winner is? A winner is somebody who has given his best effort, who has tried the hardest they possibly can, who has utilized every ounce of energy and strength within them to accomplish something. It doesn't mean that they accomplished it or failed, it means that they've given it their best. That's a winner.”

    Interesting that the first deal was vetoed, but then the 4 for 1 was approved.

    No way that deal gets approved in any deal where guys put up cash. There'd be bloodshed.

    Not a chance in my money league of a deal of 3-1 or more getting approved. 2-1 are highly scrutinized. It better be 2 pretty good players for a stud. Add to that in that league almost every trade from a losing team to a top 4 team is vetoed after about week 6. 4-1 is bananas, especially for a guy who's hurt. I've won the league 4 years running, am leading this year too. I don't even bother trying to trade, or waste time on the waiver wire. Either the trade gets vetoed, or someone else claims the guy just so I can't. The only pick ups from the waiver I've snuck in I executed at 11:59 so no one had time to block me...
