    Considering football players are being paid to cut years /decades off their lifespans, I don't really take issue with them making millions to play a 'game'... plus, take a player like Peyton Manning who almost single handedly revived an entire city. I mean, can you measure the benefits to reinvigorating Indianapolis in millions of dollars? Probably not.

    And, you know, CTE and all that other fun stuff.

    PS: Not that i think (good) teachers shouldn't make more money, i just believe you should pay people what their worth. And some athletes are worth it, IMO.

    The football thing is my dad's fault. He was a high school coach (wrestling as well) and I spent most of my young life following him around to games and meets. Partly because I had to when I was very young but eventually I grew to love it. He never had a son, so he groomed me into a kick ass jock, I just played volleyball and softball instead. Sports were the only thing he and I ever connected on so after all these years, it's just stuck with me. Now my Thursdays, Sundays, Mondays and Saturdays in December revolve highly around football and I watch baseball in the spring, in the hope that the Tigers aren't complete garbage. Needless to say, it was a rough season for me. Verlander finally getting his ring kinda made up for it though, especially with the Astros, who are some of my favorite players.

    So it's only the sports stars that make millions in this country? You do realize there are CEOs of corporations making triple what some of the highest paid athletes make. They have little or no talent whatsoever and usually get to where they are because of politics and the fact they went to a great college usually because their parents have a ton of money and status of their own.

    Most of the football players we watch on a weekly basis will be forced to get a real job after their careers are over. Careers are short, the contracts aren't guranteed and many (not all) don't take care of their money very well.

    Damn! I thought I was going to steal one this week against the best team in the league with two of my best players on bye. Walkin' Dudes ran into some hard luck with Freeman getting hurt, but then Cam decided to turn back into Cam Newton after a two year break and that's all she wrote.

    Would have been a huge win for me. Now I find my season at a crossroads once again.

    My defense has a bye week coming up, and apparently the only available defense is the colts, who also have a bye week :/

    Chargers or giants ? I want a D in return. I'd offer but I'm not sure which team you are.

    Giants have a defense? I believe they play your team this week. They are going to get torched.

    I don't know who played against Keenan Allen today....but you have my sympathies.

    I played against him in two leagues. I think I'll go cry myself to sleep.

    You know that it is not something that I wanted to do and exactly for that reason. However, one of the people that had drafted too many defenses wasn't responding and it seemed like the only way to get the draft results entered.

    Most likely I will "fix" this in the off-season but that is the only time it will let me change roster limits. Only one team has four defenses right now though. With each team able to have three it is still possible for this to happen but I don't think it should be lower than three which is where it has been until this year.

    Unfortunately for Wolfhr this week it would not have made a difference in who won the game anyway.

    I just cant believe someone would keep multiple defenses and kickers in this format instead of a skill player. I contemplate taking zeros instead of covering byes every time because i just dont want to cut anyone, LOL
