    Default Final Ruling On Lost/ISU Trade

    Putting this here so it doesn't get lost in the thread and so that everyone can see my line of reasoning.

    I'm approving the trade, starting next week 12/11-12/17.

    When I got on the board this morning like I usually do I was in a rush, all I did was run in make the post in the Vegas thread asking for someone to post updates through out the day and then duck out. I'm not in college anymore so I'm not able to be on here as much or as often as I've been the past two years, and I just missed it.

    I had also mentioned to Lost that I would need some time to think about whether I would approve this deal when he'd mentioned his intention of trying to do it especially if it wound up being for the initial package that he said he'd proposed (basically the same thing I think minus Humphrey). Now that I've thought about it, and heard from ISU I guess I'm as good with it as I'm going to be. I wouldn't have done the deal in a million years were I in ISU's shoes, but he's getting quality wrestlers in return and it is his team not mine, so he gets to make the decisions.

    The fact of the matter is that no one in this league has thrown down there own money to play so it isn't like this deal is going to cost anyone anything concrete.

    All of us had the same opportunities that Lost did to offer a trade like this. Now its our duty as owners to find a way to beat him ourselves, or to stack someone else's team enough at the end of the season to where they beat him.

    So again, the trade goes through...for next week and this is my 100% final ruling. We have rules, and the rules state that all line ups for the current week have to be in and approved before competition gets started. That didn't happen in this instance.

    I love how you are willing to flat out admit that the only reason you have a problem with it is because its my trade. If this were Zapp and Gofer there would be no issue. As a supposedly impartial commish that takes balls.

    You know you are good at something when about half the league is plotting against you just so you dont repeat...

    What are you even talking about?

    That first part was telling everyone who may be bitching because it is you to deal with it, because they all had the same opportunities.

    The second part was a joke.

    I approved your trade, calm down.

    Considering I've heard that line of reasoning from more then one other person this season already and I dont even have an established lead yet I dont find it very funny.

    I don't take this stuff very seriously despite what you guys might think, but it does annoy me a bit when stuff like this happens.

    Whatever though.. I dont hide my opinions and I'm not going to, whether it rubs some the wrong way or not. I do my best to share the knowledge I have with you guys and be honest in my dealings. It'd be nice to see that reciprocated sometimes, but it is what it is.

    If thats your best, go back to the drawing board.

    Again, I would only have you remember, this is a league for fun. Your antics don't really do anything to add to the fun. I have no problem getting my butt handed to me because I get outmaneuvered and outworked. I can respect that but don't call everyone else idiots because we have lives outside of this forum that demand our attention. Just take the league for what it is, a game. In the spirit of competition and fun, I don't think it adds anything for you to tell people how stupid you think they are or how great you are. Its really kind of pathetic. You need to 1) Get done with school 2) Get in to Rehab 3) Get out of Debt 4) Move out of your parents basement 5) Get a girlfriend 6) Get a haircut 7) Get a job 8) Carry Cash so you can place bets like a man 9) Lift a weight 10) Contribute to society 11) Do volunteer work 12) Clean your room...

    Mmm... see right there, that got a spike of emotion from me. I got pretty pissed off by the idea of some old guy who creeps me on facebook telling me whats wrong with me based on his perceptions from a fantasy wrestling league.

    But then I realized its just the internet, and I dont really care that much.

    Exactly...except that you do care. I guarantee if you did those 12 things, you probably wouldn't do so well in Fantasy Wrestling but you would probably be happier with your life.

    I really, really, dont.

    If I did there is no way I would put up with the lame crap you say about me constantly.
