    Wow, Knight beat Lucky by less than a point. .9 to be exact.
    The state — whatever its particular forms — always expresses itself as a collective form of property ownership. All political systems are socialistic, in that they are premised upon the subservience of individual interests to collective authority. Communism, fascism, lesser forms of state socialism, and welfarism, are all premised upon the state’s usurpation of privately-owned property. Whether one chooses to be aligned with the political "Left," "Right," or "Middle," comes down to nothing more than a preference for a particular franchise of state socialism.

    This is a good rule but I'd like to see it taken a step further. There is no way a team that hasn't participated all year (All Blacks) should be allowed into the playoffs. And I'm not arguing this so I can have his playoff spot either. I just don't think it's right. A computer picked his team and set his lineup every week.

    Next year I would like our league to have more rules regarding participation. Examples:

    No automated, computer-generated ranking for draft. You manually set your own ranking of the players before or during the draft. Cheat sheets are fine because you still have to decide on which to use and then manually set your ranking.

    A three strike rule for setting lineups. Your lineup can carry over to the next week only twice during the season. The third time you fail to set your lineup, you will forfeit that game. If it happens again, we should be looking for someone else to take over the team.
    grace & peace

    I understand your frustration Lucky, but in fairness to Stripe; well maybe not fairness but here is what happened this season. Stripe did let me know he could not set his teams lineup at all. All this can be viewed on our conversation page in our profiles. So I got back to him and emailed him a new password to the League site. Then I PMed him if everything was ok and I didn't hear anything back so I assumed he could get on. And I let it go from then on till a couple weeks ago when I really started hounding him about it. He informed me he was having the same problem still, so I emailed him again a new password. After another day of hounding him, he came back and said he had the same problem but this time he supplied me with a link to the site. Come to find out, he was trying to use CBS Sportsline and not the MFL site we use now. He missed the part about the switch so I am not going to penalize him. It could and should have been better communication on both our parts.

    But I will save your rule change requests for next year and put it up for everyone to see and vote upon.

    I planned it that way. I wanted Lucky to feel like he had a chance so I intentionally started a QB that would get -.5 points.

    Yeah. Injuries plagued me this season. Lost my top QB in the first game, then my secondary QB a few weeks ago, then my top RB and my secondary RB has had some of his own problems

    All in all though, I can't complain. My guys did quite well, considering. And it's cool to see RagTag take the division being his first time and all.

    Looking forward to the playoffs!

    I see. I probably shouldn't have singled out him but it was just an example. My own cousin failed to set his lineup most of the time too.

    My team really fizzled out the last two weeks. My guaranteed 10 pointers became duds and my stars became mere 10 pointers.
