The High Rollers Fantasy Football League - crzy is the MF'ing CHAMPION!!!!!!!!!!

what are u cheatin homos doin?
I agree with those who oppose trading picks during the regular season. Of course that change will have to take place after this fantasy season. I own Rubber's 2nd from a fair trade earlier in the season

If you're going to make this a keeper league, then I don't see how you can ban trading picks during the season.



Why not just make this a re-draft league then?

I don't care about trading picks, I care about tanking for picks at the end. That's some bull.

No surprise that it happens in the real world and in the fantasy world. I feel like it's pretty much inevitable...

Of course, if people are purposely benching guys, then the commish can always step in and use good judgement to lock their lineup and set it for them. Yes, that's VERY dictator-like to do but hey...if that's what you want and you can't or don't want to trust one another, then that's how it'd have to be.

There's tanking....such as not setting lineups....that is totally ridiculous. I'm against that.

But trading good players for future picks to invest in a future team is a perfectly valid option in a keeper league, IMO.
if everyone could not set their lineup against me that would be great

Why isn't it valid to "tank" by sitting your best player so instead of the 2nd pick you get the 1st pick?

I truly don't understand the distinction.

Sitting your best player or trading him away = same net result for that week's game (he doesn't score you any points). Both moves improve your draft.

Whats the difference?

Trading a player for a pick is the SAME THING as benching him

Ya but if someone who shouldn't have won the money this year wins it because he traded his picks away for players, it would be worth it. Hell they could back out next year or not care because they won. That's crap

This is what I was saying earlier. I am screwed right now at RB because of Foster and Wilson. I could make a huge trade and give up my first 4 picks next year and get 2 studs and possibly win the league. Then not come back. How f**ked up would that be. Just wouldnt do it.

No. It's not the same thing. Not at all.

One is making a long-term trade, a long-term investment....that is completely valid within the framework of a keeper league. It's still within the framework of comeptition.

The other, is simply using cheap tactics, such as benching players, not setting lineups, It is not within the spirit of comeptition.

Yeah, it would absolutely be f**ked up if the person didn't come back. That would piss me off too.

But I'm assuming that the people playing in this league have the integrity to come back after trading future picks. Otherwise, that would be a complete b***h move.

Everyone needs to set their lineups and try to win each week.

If that's what you meant by tanking, then I agree with you.

If I thought my team was only one piece away from winning this league, then I wouldn't hesitate and would trade a 1st for a stud player

But my team is a pretender, relying entirely right now on Nick Foles and Jamaal Charles.....so I'm probably not making any trades.

Yes we know you dog. Nick Foles and his 7 tds against me pretty much won the week for you. If he has just scored 30 or so points I would have won.
