    As for the rest of you...wtf? You guys do realize we're playing against LoSt don't you? I'm just saying that LoSt has approached me with a trades a couple of times and I didn't just look at what it did for my team.....but how much better his team would be because of it. We've created a monster. I just hope we reflect on this. Major Leaguer's try to avoid making trades for top tier guys in their own division....why?....because they have to go against that guy if they do!

    I'm not talking about any particular trade either....too many went through the shoot and LoSt is going to be nearly impossible to beat at the tourney. An ideal compromise is when both teams are equally unhappy.

    Props to you LoSt.
    Grips unlike you most of the people in this league are fairly realistic, and I think at some point they realized they were playing for second. You seem to be hellbent on the idea that the first is the only place worth taking, when in fact the top four finishers recieve money.

    Oh young LoSt. Clearly missing the point. Nobody got into this league thinking about money. I want to win the league. Please believe you'd be the first to pipe up about someone stacking their team.

    I'm just saying that you should look at both sides of the trade.
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    I meant finalist. Unlike LoSt, when I type something like conference champ, it is usually because I don't know enough, not because I am bragging or actually pulling crap out of my ass. Ignorance is bliss with me.

    Hell no, Dudziak goes down and gets injured, someone else gets upset and he only sends 9 to nationals, its all back on...like I told him...I sent four to the finals last year and took a third place and still didn't win.

    Its not over yet.

    Is he a favorite, yes. Are there alot of pretty good teams, yep.

    I have a hard time figuring out which one of my returning AA's is going to lose in conferences and not qualify, but I guess crazyer things HAVE happened (Craig Henning).

    Really Dudziak is the only question mark from my perspective.

    I agree that there are a lot of strong teams on paper and if I lost it wouldnt be the craziest thing to ever happen in wrestling. However I do feel comfortable where I am right now and I think I am a sizeable favorite over the rest of the field.

    We'll see how things play out!
