In case you somehow haven’t heard already, the replacement refs blew the call at the end of Monday Night Football by awarding a touchdown to Golden Tate in place of a Green Bay interception. Even Jon Gruden’s disgusted. The play in question (or is it still in question?), courtesy of KSK: http://youtu.be/x-qiGyB6HzE…… Continue reading Monday Night Football Golden Tainted by Replacement Refs, Twitter Explodes and NFL Players React
I’ve been a slacker this season when it comes to posting my sleepers and value picks.

Or if you, like me, took…… Continue reading Top 15 Fantasy Football Storylines You Missed Since the Super Bowl
The playoffs are truly fickle. Just like your high school girlfriend (well, if you had a girlfriend), they tire of you after about two weeks. If you lost in Week 14, you can probably identify a few names on your new hate list, updated daily while you rub lipstick on your face and cry, from…… Continue reading The Team That Knocked You Out of the Playoffs in Week 14

If your team is 0-2, you could use the help, but don’t do anything crazy. I know of a league where a man dropped Matt Schaub after his pitiful Week 1 performance. I will name no names, but I’m pretty sure he regrets that now. He should. Your top picks deserve some time to find…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 3 Pickups and Sleepers
“Wait, Coach, you mean THIS will get me suspended? I just thought I was mailing it in at Kyle Orton’s performance level…” Yes, Brandon Marshall, that will get you suspended for the rest of the preseason.
