thumbs up!!


I'm still going to beat your ass after Vick tonight.

I just hope he doesn't throw to anyone but Jackson. I'm playing Celek (you), Maclin and McCoy tonight in my other two leagues respectively.

I feel Celek might be the equalizer I need to escape with a W tonight... I'm hoping!!

Well, clearly you're going to win this one. Celek is the only receiver doing much, and since this is PPR I can't catch up.

I had a few points cushion and Forte, he had McCoy. I lost by 1. Awesome. Thanks for the two fumbles, Forte.

Yahoo's fantasy football sucks -- and their mobile app is a piece of shit. This is my first year using Yahoo, forced into it, and it's a pain in the ass. The best site I've ever used is FleaFlicker, I've had a league setup there for 9 straight years. It's not super graphically impressive, but it's 100% free, no ads, live scoring every week, lots of research and info, fully customizable, etc. All killer no filler.

If FleaFlicker supports double-headers (where each team plays two teams each week) next year there's no doubt I'm using them.

Do they have a iOS/Android app? If so, how is it?

And if you think Yahoo is the worst, you've clearly never used CBS. And to make matters worse, you have to pay for the terrible CBS experience.

It has advertisements and it has an iOS app.

you would of needed Vick to score some TD's as well... On a side note, a feel bad for smellmysocks, loses by a few points each week to be 0-9 :cry:

To be fair, he does have the second lowest point total. He shouldn't be winning. Although the lowest point total (Nimsu) is 4-5.

No idea. I've never even heard of that. I would assume: probably. Go make a fake league and play around?

It works well, the iPhone app I've used, except it doesn't like to keep you logged in. It always remembers your info though, so you just have to go to the login screen and push Done and you're there. No big deal, at least by comparison, as I can't get the Y! app to work 99% of the time.

Here's hoping I never have to.

Do you mean FleaFlicker? I've been on there forever and have never seen an ad. Of course, I just remembered I use AdBlock on my browser, so maybe they've added ads and I just don't see them. That's probably likely.

Thanks for the info. Here's hoping FleaFlicker gets an android app between now and next year. And double-headers.

The league I commish insists on double-headers every week. It softens the blow when the second-highest scoring team gets beat by the highest scoring team in a given week. The truly best teams rise to the top, there's a bunch of .500 teams and total points ends up being the tiebreaker for getting into the playoffs. I think it's more fair because points, not record, determines which teams are the best.

Can people please stop picking players up who play in the thursday night game after the game but before sundays games??? :hanging: I mean come on - the league set up should not let this happen but have some decency, you know this is frowned upon.

So pretty please with sugar on top will the guilty party or commish return McNight to the waiver wire effective immediately. Not have another one of these Henderson things where nothing was ever done.

In other news, in the tight end matchup bet for a steak dinner (with all the fixins and a good bottle of wine) ... after getting some taunting texts after Gronk scored the early TD ... Hernandez took the lead late ...

pewter / A. Hernandez - 23.30
benny / R. Gonkowski - 20.60

... it's a long season.


Today... Gronk 24.6 - AH 19.2

Overall...

AH 42.5
Gronk 45.2



Safe to say, I'm going to lose this bet. Oh well, I'm a Pats fan and my loss requires me to buy steak ... a good bet to lose.
