How many of you.......

12 posts in this topic

fantasy football players auction off your team when you are having a terrible season? I am 1-8-1 in one of my 3 leagues and everyone wants McGahee, Gonzalez and Hasselbeck. I'm not willing to trade because that's not who I am, but how many of you would trade? I have to mention that the guy leading is a pain in the butt, and the buy-in is $200, so I don't want to see him win. grin.gif

As long as you were getting fair value in return and not making lop sided trades to the other owners I would have no problem with you making those trades if I was in your league. I've always been of the opinion that good teams have every right to get better as well. If the upper guys have good depth at one particular position and want to trade away that depth to make up for weaknesses in other positions to get ready for the playoff run then more power to them.

Just my .02 worth.

Yeah, it's getting to that time of the year when trade deadlines loom. I'm in 3 leagues, on pace for gold, silver, and bronze in each of them right now, and I'm looking to do what Down to Earth described. I'm weak at WR in my first place league with L. Coles and D. Mason, but am strong at RB with M. Lynch, J. Addai, and C. Portis. I could deal one RB that I can't play each week anyways for a better WR.

We'll see how it goes. I offered Portis for Colston but the Colston owner knows the Saints are heating up....

I agree in both of the scenarios, but I was wondering how many people have a complete "yardsale" of sorts (ie. Portis for Betts, or Hasselbeck for Kelly Holcombe). I'm all for a beneficial trade for both parties, but I hate to see good players leave a losing team in a lopsided trade.

If you had a "yardsale in my league with a (Contact Us Please) team you would definitely not be invited to play again next year. To do something like that is just bush league.

That is the response I expected to get and EXACTLY the way I feel.

True. That's why leagues need good commissioners or voting on all trades.

Even worse is when somebody just drops everybody and then its a waiver wire fire sale.

FFB should bring managers of the same skill level or experience to prevent those things from happening. Or just play for money so people actually care what they do (Gambling ruins families and in no way do I condone it grin.gif)

in our league we have 3 guys that overview any rules/trades. I am one of those lucky guys and have had to nix trades and call out an infraction last year that cost a guy the championship and $800 dollars..... tongue.gif

That was another reason for posting this. We also have a commitee to review trades that involve the commish. I was involved in a trade with the commish about a month ago where I traded Boldin for De Shaun Foster and Phillip Rivers. I had no back-up QB (for Hasselbeck) and my running backs were not living up to expectations (McGahee and Jones-Drew). I was deep at WR and in a league where WR get a lot of points, if you have 3 starters, you're pretty much set. So, the "commitee" (which consisted of the 2nd place team and I was trading with the 1st place commish) decided it was unfair and that there was some collusion involved. It ended up going to the league as a vote and was ultimatley allowed. So far that trade has not made a difference for either team. I guess it's not as easy when money is involved......although I don't condone gambling grin.gif

I was offered a 12 pack of beer for Reggie Bush. I replied that I am not a whore and my integrity is worth more than a case of beer. He said that he was only offering a 12 pack.

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
