It's not over.  We could experience a freakish run of injuries that leaves us with only 50% of our roster active in the playoffs.  Or, a minority of the league could conspire to screw us on a legitimate trade we make.  Or, like last year, both could occur.  ;D

"Bad luck" the refrain of losers everywhere.

And sometimes they're right.

Even though we were playing at 50% strength, we still outpointed your squad during Finals week.  We both know that the best team didn't win.

No, the best manager did. You guys clung to a couple of excuses and too much fantasy dead weight. You could've made a real run at it, but couldn't stomache the risks.  :-*

Last season was a war of attrition, I was decimated by injuries, so was YH, he just doesn't talk about it as much.

P.S. I outscored both Finals teams in 2009, but I didn't deserve to be there, because MK was brilliant in picking his starters, whereas I ran Jannero Pargo out ahead of rookie Serge Ibaka on a crucial Sunday.

EDIT - Yes that still stings. Even more than M@rc*s Th#rnt#n or JaVale McGee and a 1st for Allen Iverson. (Frankly, if AI mounted a comeback I'd probably make that mistake again.)

I aready nominated myself the head of the talent redistribution party with a goal of getting enough votes in my voting block to push through some "Unique" rules.  Nobody seemed to go for it though.

If only I could have traded on my Cherokee heritage to improve my draft position.

Peeing match aside, it was kinda weird that just about every playoff team had loads of injuries by the end of the season - it was pretty much a limp to the finish line.  Anyone who stayed healthy would've bulldozed the other contenders.  Heck, I'm pretty sure my gang of rookies and also-rans outpointed both of you in the last week - I know I was well ahead of both finalists. 

This of course means I'm automatically champion and Hobbs and Wiggle have to spend eternity devouring each other as the crankiest ouroborus imaginable.  Book it!   ;)

Possibly the only subject that Roy and I can agree on, THE FWF has been a great addition to the league.
