I will remind you that the 1 and 2 seeds actually made it to the fantasy baseball final this year. So it's not an automatic curse.

State of my roster right now: 6 guys Probable, 6 guys Questionable, 1 out.

"Probable" means they will almost certainly play, but jeez.

Scores after Sunday's games, and remaining players going into Monday night:

Banana Town 82.88 (the Denver law firm of Thomas & Thomas)
Owensboro 99.63 (Denver RB CJ Anderson)
Yahoo gives Owensboro a 67% probability of hanging on.


Monkeys 106.3 (Andy Dalton)
Lygars 106.77 (Pacman Jones and Emmanuel Sanders)
Yahoo likes the Lygars, giving them 67%.


On a personal note, holy SHIT I left a lot of points on the bench. Started Brees (who went negative) instead of Rivers (who put up 25). Frank Gore was listed as out earlier in the week, so i sat him; instead he played and put up 27. Torrey Smith has been utterly unreliable but this week he put up 20. I should be winning this thing going away.

Last night I watched Cardinals-Seahawks and focused on my DL, Calias Campbell, whenever AZ was on defense. That guy did jack shit, got thoroughly blocked on every play.

Oh well. At least no one got snakebit by Andrew Luck's no good horrible very bad day. Good luck everybody.

The Texans can still make the playdowns if they win on Sunday and about half a dozen teams lose in their favor.

Your 2014 fantasy footbaw final:
Owensboro 167, Lygars 106. Owensboro Greg wins his second title in three years, thanks largely to Aaron Rodgers (226 yds, 2 pass TDs, 1 rush TD, 0 INT, 27 FP) and CJ Anderson (87 yds, 3 TDs, 27 FP). Ash was let down by his superstar QBs (started Brady, 1.5 FP; benched P. Manning, 1.6 FP), but it's his third top-three finish in the 8 years of our league.

Third place: Banana Town 115, Monkeys 93. Also my third top-three finish, though I've not won a champeenship.

Thanks for a good season everyone.

I don't usually think much of it when fans blame the refs for a loss. But some of those calls late in the Dallas-Detroit game were mighty weird.

No matter, though, as Dallas will get destroyed in Green Bay next week.

I always want the Cowboys to lose, but it'll be better in Green Bay. Looking forward to that game.

Well, they didn't exactly get destroyed. And the Packers benefited from a shady call much the way the Cowboys did last week. Well, not exactly shady; I think the call was correct within the context of the rules, but the rules themselves are messed up because that should have been a catch.

Rules need to be consistent with reality.  Anyone who saw that play (who wasn't a Packer, or one of their homers) thought it was a catch.  A great catch, and a body sacrificing stretch for the goal line that came up short.  When interpreting a rule results in an outcome that contradicts common sense, its obvious where the fault lies and that something needs to be done about it.  I wish they'd shown us Jerry Jones' reaction though.  That would have been TV worth watching.

I think they made the right call, but that rule is fucked up.

Still, this clutch of megalo-business carpetbagging motherfuckers is going to foist a team in here and none of the choices are worth a shit. They aren't talking expansion, so it'll be some

Jaguars?

Your points on stadium development being a way for rich people to get richer are well taken. The jobs they generate aren't that great, the development around the stadium doesn't always happen as planned, and especially for the NFL not everyone can afford to partake in the experience.
