The fantasy blues.
So this season sucks for fantasy football. I know i've said it before, but this season sucks, plain and simple. I made one simple trade this year for a under performing player, and it has totally backfired on me. I'm 0-6 in one league, and 2-4 in the other. Not a good way to follow up a championship and second place finish from my two leagues last year. Oh, well. Such is my life i guess. Now I got some guy who won't leave me alone about aquiring my only good player, Mathew Stafford. After 3 attempts at a trade, I finally just told him I'm 0-6, I'm not giving up my best god damned player! I countered with Flacco and a 1st round pick, but he turned it down, countering with Calvin Johnson and Bradshaw for Stafford. That is the best deal he has sent me so far, but I don't think I can rely on my backups to lead me the rest of the way, Flacco and Schaub. Neither of them are slouches by any means, but Stafford is my man, and I will not part with him. Selfish? Maybe. Stupid? Probably. But I am a stick to your guns type of person, and am stubborn as all hell when I want to be. And this occasion calls for my stubborness I think. Did I mention I was 0-6 yet? Come on, seriously. Don't kick a man when he's down!
