    Westeros Fantasy Baseball 2020

    I'm in. And kicking myself because I had to drop Verdugo in my dynasty league last year (I was leading with a month to go and got hit by an astoundingly bad bunch of simultaneous injuries).

    Sorry. Looks like the leaderboard is pretty locked in.

    I think I have to get one of the two 16 point games right.

    Fantasy Football 2019

    I can't speak to Westeros C, but here is where things stand in the feeder leagues of which I am aware. Westeros A - Dracarys (156.42 done) ahead of BluRay (115.22 + Stefon Diggs + Mike Boone) - does not look good for BluRay. Keeper - Manhole (125.98 + Packers Defense) vs. Boiled Leather (103.86 + Aaron Rodgers + Aaron Jones + Mike Boone) Might be another league win for BL. Dynasty - Jaxom1974 (117.34 + Davante Adams + Mason Crosby + Packers Defense) vs. Bronn (105.84 + Aaron Rodgers) Yahoo says Jaxom has an 80% chance of winning and I concur.

    Westeros Dynasty 2016

    Looks like it is down to me and Jaxom with a slot in Experts waiting for the winner. Looks like Manhole had three tough choices last week and would have won with any of them changing (MN Def instead of SF Def, P. Rivers instead of D. Lock and S. Shepherd over R. Cobb). Jaxom's team is definitely not as loaded as Manhole's. Good luck to all in their finals!

    Dynasty is me (4) vs Jaxom (6). Keeper is Boiled Leather (3) vs Manhole (1) Special shout-out to @grozeng - who may be the only owner in Fantasy Football this season to draft Lamar Jackson (Dynasty) and miss the playoffs in a ten team league where six go.

    We kinda have a month to decide about the Fantasy Playoff League, no?

    The Crown Season 3 [Spoilers]

    It's almost like Helena Bonham Carter is busy and expensive. I don't think you sign an actress of her caliber to a TV show to have her on set a lot for reaction shots and lines.

    Ditto. In 20 years on this forum I have blocked posts from two people now. For over a decade it was only one.

    NFL 2019 Midway Point: Gase into the Abyss

    No. You insure the players. I'm quite sure Tua has an insurance contract that covers injuries of this exact sort. https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/20592832/how-college-football-players-get-insurance From linked article: According to industry professionals, the general rule is that a top-10 pick will qualify for $10 million of permanent total disability with a $5 million loss-of-value rider. The 10 to 20 picks would be looking at $5 to $7.5 million of PTD and $2 to $3 million in loss of value. Picks in the 20 to 30 pick range would be around $5 million total disability. You can certainly argue the numbers should be higher and the NCAA could help with the underwriting. But I don't think the risk of injury is something that cannot be handled through insurance. https://heavy.com/sports/2019/04/nfl-draft-pick-salaries-contracts-signing-bonuses/ I'd advocate that the top insurable value should be at least equal to the guaranteed money for the 10th overall pick. And that if private insurance won't stretch to those numbers, the NCAA itself underwrite the difference.

    I don't see him getting out of the second round. Except now his market is one of the teams with an aging veteran who still has a year or two left. (NE?).

    From a pure football perspective, at the very least Colin Kaepernick is a perfect backup for the Ravens. He could run so much of that offense, if not as well as Jackson, certainly better than RG3.

    As you wish. Agreed though. Not sure whether he said something to Rudolph or just pissed him off with the extended hit/hold in a game with 8 seconds left. But neither has a place in the NFL. The league protects quarterbacks - he knows it - everyone knows it. And it was a cheap tackle/hit with time expired and playing out the string.

    NFL 2019 Midway Point: Gase into the Abyss

    I still could not believe Coach Kyle's decision to throw on third and long toward the end of overtime. A running play pretty much clinches the tie. You can almost certainly run off half of the 85 or so seconds that were remaining before punting. SF did not need the win nearly as badly as Seattle. A tie pretty much locks up a playoff slot, barring an epic collapse of which that defense seems incapable. And their chances of pulling out a win on 3rd and 10 from their own 20 were quite slim.
