    Notables:

    @Veloce Grey -- 1st place for SMACK TALK. Went home empty handed.:blush:

    @ZCP - The cheapskate trophy. Spent nothing on free agents and his team performed like it. Should have stuck with Cutler, Boobie, and Tebow.

    I'm very proud of my 8th place considering I spent about 8 minutes a week on it, both in watching games and managing. :praise:

    I'm not going to complain about how my players ACL's seemed to be made of spaghetti.....

    However I did continue one record-the winner is either me or whoever knocks me out in the playoffs-

    2014-me
    2015-you with your giant waiver-built steamroller under the old rules, so it almost feels like a moral victory
    2016-Richie Rich scored 190 odd to knock me out in the semi finals, full credit
    2017-Likwid scored 171 against me in week 14, though you get an assist for calling my roster "atrocious" and "it's so bad that I can look at my roster and feel not so bad"

    It's like I bring out the best in opponents. Scoring in other people, comedy in you. I'm going to award myself a trophy for it.

    Ironically the week 14 roster that was so bad, got back Zeke and Juju by week 16 and if I had an opponent, simply playing the highest projected scoring players would have returned 167 points. My timing was just a tad off.

    -not as off as the guy who spent Pick 77 of the draft on Darren McFadden to block me, then told me he'd happily pay that price for "6 weeks of RB1 production". Darren managed minus 0.2 points for the season, uninjured.

    The time and detail that went into your thoughtful analysis was about how much time I spent on FF this year! No doubt you are has powerful as the emperor has foreseen.

    Actually in all seriousness you deserve plenty of credit for running a league and taking on the risk of potential drama. I never quite realised what that could entail until I started my own leagues. I never expected to be babysitting grown men unleashing their pent up office rage.

    DM me a PO Box or something and I'll send you a piece of official "Team Huge Carrot" fan merchandise in honor of your management efforts over these years.

    Thanks!

    DM me a PO Box or something and I'll send you an autographed photo of myself sending MJ a piece of official "Team Huge Carrot" fan merchandise.

    Though I should warn you I've been described as "amazingly unphotogenic".

    I much rather have a picture of you with Cutler, Boobie or D. McFadden. Sign it, "Thanks for the faith!"

    Ouch, boss! Was in the hunt until I lost my first two picks to a collarbon. Thought I did alright with some scrap heap picks when I didn't get outbid.

    Now you have to bring the league back next season so I get a shot at redemption. :)

    @Veloce Grey -- dude, thank you so much for the goodies!!! So unexpected!

    Love the cup! Ha Ha!
    And now I own a tie! My first in 2 decades!

    Thank you again, sometimes when I get a strange box in the mail I wonder if I'm being targeted by a new Unibomber... but no, it was the BIG CARROT!

    It was deserved after years of league admin. I saw the tie and was like "he lives in Arizona and doesn't have to wear a tie, but maybe one day he'll need a tie and think of Team Huge Carrot..."

    I hope the candy survived the long trip intact. I actually offered Vig some Pineapple Lumps for a draft pick in the 2016 season but he didn't take his chance.

    Just a reminder I will not be administrating a league next year, but someone is welcome to spearhead a group.


    Meanwhile, just another week in the NFL.

    As I mentioned, I will NOT be playing this year, much less running a league.

    However if someone else wants to start a Fastlane league, please feel free to post a new thread in the MEETUPS category. Then I can live vicariously through ya'll in a matter of minutes, instead of hours.

    I will miss our romantic draft moments. Look out for my new book about that time I drafted David Johnson in the 14th round or something as a rookie. I should actually have let you be a co-owner on my team, so instead of any stress you could just log in each week to look at the roster and think "what a beautiful, beautiful team" as you take another sip from your official Team Huge Carrot mug.

    I'm already managing two leagues which is probably enough for a gambling man who lives on fast food and is therefore a decent risk to cark it at any moment. Plus I've seen how managing a money league has aged you so horribly.

    Veloce Grey, how much is it to join your auction league and is the spot still open? If not, no worries. I'm with you: I'm going to miss our epic battles and we usually would end up facing each other in the playoffs, if not the championship. It's going to be odd not being in the Fastlane league this year, as it was always fun to brag to my friends and family about those I was playing against, how they started successful businesses and are now millionaires or are on their way. Oh well. I understand where MJ is coming from, as fantasy football can drive people crazy and those around them as well (just ask my family, they hate when football season starts!), so taking a break is needed from time to time, as being commissioner can be a pain in the a$$ at times. Maybe next year.

    This is why I hate being a league admin :) I literally checked this morning to see if you'd replied yet and then the guy randomly shows up today out of nowhere.

    I'll keep in touch as I have another free NFL.com league 12-14 team standard that is set to draft at a more conventional time on Saturday 1st US time and not sure yet who is/isn't playing this year. It can be like to trying to round up cattle at times.

    You would have enjoyed the spectacle of my annual auction draft yesterday. It involved a nice solid 30 minutes of getting outbid on everyone I wanted. Except that's ok, there was one elite RB left and I had the cash to outbid everyone. It was down to two people as the price got to $76...then my browser froze and the site stopping working. By the time I restarted... :frown:

    I loudly protested how unlucky I had been in the draft to general agreement, then later someone asked what browser I was using, where the answer of IE turned any sympathy to howls of derision and "you got what you deserved".

    I note the lack of anyone bounding in to take over as replacement Fastlane league commish and inheriting the associated marketing/babysitting responsibilities.

    Since nobody seems keen to step into MJ's big boots in the Fastlane league, if anyone from recent year's leagues is keen to continue playing vs me and Richie, send me a DM with your email for an invite. We're both in a league drafting on Saturday 1st at 11pm ET, standard draft either 12 or 14 teams (preferably 12).

    League is free but active so please no random ghosters as I have a responsibility to the other players there to keep the quality up.

    Anyone from among this bunch, I can't remember too many idiots last year.
