some general bitching about my FF season.... this year I thought I was ready to step up to the big boy league with an entrance fee, custom rules, and all that stuff. I did my research, added Matthew Berry to my podcast list, and weighed all my matchups.
Then I went 0 - 4, losing each game by less thn 5 points.
and 0 - 6
Somewhere in there, I said, "screw you guys, I'm going home." and stopped paying attention. Then by sheer luck, after not touching my roster from the previous week, I won my first game! I was now 1 - 7!!! And then Doug Martin put up something like 50 points and I was 2 - 7, so now I'm looking at the playoffs, thinking, "Hot damn, if I can only run the table, I may still win this thing!!!" I kept on winning, until Steve Smith (who I started on advice from that idiot Matthew Berry) put up a stinker with 2 points, knocking me out.
The main irony here, and I'm guessing people in this thread know it well, is that my team is now pretty stacked, with Doug Martin, Benjarvus Green-Ellis, Calvin Johnson, CJ Spiller, and Matt Ryan on the roster in a 12 team league. In the remaining games of the season which don't count for anything, I'm projected to win each by a margin of ~30 points.
Lesson learned for next year. It ain't over until Steve Smith whines enough to get some balls thrown his way. Also next year I need to double down in multiple leagues because being out of the playoffs sucks.
