I've tried to emotionally distance myself from Sports. I try to never get to high or too low. But last night turned me into the kid who cried when the 92 team was mathematically eliminated. I am glad my children aren't old enough to understand what happened last night. Seeing the NFL sell out its integrity over a labor dispute is something I don't think I'll be able to get over. It's my tipping point. I am not going to watch a single game as long as the replacement officials are allowed to work. I am going to take my kids to the Texas State Fair on Sunday, and watch a movie Sunday evening. My official boycott starts today.
This does not mean I won't participate in Fantasy Football, which is awesome. This just means that the ratings for the game will just go down one household.
On the plus side, at least we know that the price of integrity is 1/30th of 1% of your annual revenues.
On to week 3, and what a week. Steelers doing Steeler things to raiders (get well soon DHB), Harbaughs looking to gut officials, Belichek trying to bully others, and the Vikings and Chiefs shocking the world in the domes. What fun. Almost as fun as looking at your fantasy lineup since the Pack
plays tonight got shafted last night.
Thanks for Nothing, Jerk team of the week! These are the guys that scored the least amount of points for their position in all 3 leagues. Injuries don't count, so DHB is safe.
QB- Philip Rivers 2- How the hell do you score 2 points at QB in this league? This is a PPR. There is no position where you can score 2 points. But marmalard figured it out. Jeez, that's bad. Vick and Cam were also below 10 points in some of the worst starts of the year.
RB- Mark Ingram 1- Meiz himself said, "Never own any saint outside of Brees and Graham." This is why.
RB- Chris Johnson 3- He is no longer CJ2K. He is now CJ2Fat
WR- Vincent Jackson 3- That cowboy D is pretty good.
WR- Jordy Nelson 3
TE- Jason Witten 2
Flex- Ben Tate 0- This is why you can't own Ben Tate. He'll go for 20 points one week, but he'll kill you the next.
D- Colts 1 (really? The Colts? I know they were playing the Jags, but... wow. Honorable Mention to the perenial top 5 D Ravens putting up 1.5)
K- Matt Bryant
Bench team that whupped you.
QB Joe Flacco 34
RB- Mikel Leshore 25
RB Daniel Thomas 12
WR Santonio Holmes 26
WR Torey Smith 33
TE Fred Davis 16
Flex Nate Washington 13
Games still up in the air.
BCB1- Tepo's Jintao Labor Camp needs 35 points from Finley and Jennings to pass BrewCrewBrian's Jerry Sandusky's lil Giants. Masondlo needs 15 MORE points from the Packers D than the Seahawks D for his Blackmon's Apologetic Cocktails to pass CheezConQueso's Finley Shades of Gray. UPDATE: Tepo lost, Masondlo lost.
BCB 2- My Man Sploosh (heh) needs 8 points from Mason Crosby to pass TexWestern's JoPa's Blind Eye. The biggest scoreboard watching though has to go to The Lil Sebastian Janikowski v. Flood the Zone w/ Cheryl Tunt game. the Lil's have a 45 point lead with the Seahawks D remaining, but the Tunts have Arodg, Beef Moe, and Jordy Nelson left to go. UPDATE: I fell .5 points short and lost, as did aaronetc's Flood.
BCB 3- Noah's Somebody that I used to Know is down 15 points going for his first win with Jordy and Crosby left to play to pass Yar's Man Getting Hit by Football. UPDATE: Noah didn't make it.
Team of the Week Race: My Sanchez's Lil Black Yearbook had a great week putting up 157 points led by MJD, The Bears D, and Brady, and not a lot of teams have a shot at eclipsing that. Rendezvous' Mustached Americans would need 21 points from Finley. BrewGuyTim would need 16 Points from the Packers D (very doable). Other notable performances this week include Leam topping 140 points again, along with my Rob Ryan's Unidentified Van Stain. UPDATE: I won it, but who cares. It's overcast and it won't be sunny again.
The Yar Nivek Award: BrewCrewBrian's Sandusky's Lil Giants scored 101.5, the 5th fewest point total in the BCB leagues. And won.
The Hard Luck Loser of the week: Green Bay. But in fantasy, it was Blackmon's Apologetic Cocktail who scored 125 points, 8th best in the leagues, and lost. Also, my Man Sploosh lost by .5 points.
On to the power ranks: Leam's Cam, I wish keeps his top spot with the 4th highest total this week. Noah takes over the bottom with another sub 105 performance. Great weeks were turned in by Sanchez's lil black yearbook who shot up the ranks from 18th to 6th. Flood the Zone dropped from 4th to 17th. Interestingly, BCB 1 is looking like a stars and scrubs league, with 5 teams in the top 10, and 4 in the bottom 10. Again, just 3 weeks, but that's kinda interesting.
