Well, there's a bug. In preview, the URLs were all weird (sportsfilter.com added before all of them), and they were in black and underlined. And the list at the bottom wasn't smeared on a single line. Other than preview not giving an accurate preview, I guess it works.

I totally sucked this week.

Movin' on...

It's interesting to see etrader took a whopping 20-point penalty (that's five extra trades that week), but still ended up top scorer by 11 points. I may have to reconsider this over-trading thing.

wc2k -- the points penalty for transfers above 1 is assessed against the score as it stood the previous week. So etrader had 42 last week, which was reduced to 22 going into this game week. The 68 is the score this week without taking into account the -20. If you were factoring in the negative points to this week, etrader would be at a net 48 points for the week, which would still put him/her above the SpoFi average but a ways off the top.

I don't think the 68 includes his penalty. Still (if my math is right) making the move just for the ManYoo backfield would have netted you +10 over a standard 2 point result even with the deductions, so in theory gambling can pay off.

Flagged as "Interesting, but please delete before others see". So basically I should trade for the defense and goalie of whomever Pompey is playing at?

Still waiting for an all around peformance from my squad. Cylinder deactivation is great in certain circumstances, but I'm trying to build some horsepower.

And is Friedel done? He looked horrible over the weekend.

btw gspm, underline is just the visited state.

posted by YukonGold at 05:13 PM on August 26

maybe they should make strikethrough the visited state.

JK!

That damn table looks righteous enough to these eyes|

Can we call the season closed now? Before I start my inevitable, inexorable, slide down to 15th place?

Nosebleed city.

But I want to be the first this season to say that it's a marathon, not a sprint.

I apologize for dragging down the league average. Though really we should be talking to Robert Green and Fernando (o-2-point-mand-o!!!) Torres.

Don't be dissing 15th place. If I can finish there, the season will be a success.

Well, what looked like a promising start to the season has rapidly deteriorated. One might say this season is going to Hull.
