Thread: Fantasy League: Injury Replacements/Trades

    Are we going to start this again? its like fantasy football dude...if your guy you pick at noon to start gets hurt in warm-ups, you don't get to change him for a 4:00 p.m. game...

    That IS the risk of this...it was clear that we were picking a guy one week at a time...your lucky that you get a replacement at all as jensens had to talk me into doing injury replacements during the season, we were going to wait until after Christmas break to replenish your roster...

    Are you even playing for money? If not, just sit back and enjoy the ride. Again, this has never been done before so next year when we are talking about the rules you can speak up then...

    I have him in my closet Gofer.

    IF you want him back, I want a brown bag full of unmarked $100 bills under the big Red Pine in my back yard by Thursday nite......
    Otherwise, you'll never see him again.

    Which is exactly my point, its not your fault that there isnt enough information out there for you to know what to do, why should you be punished for that? Honestly I dont follow football but my guess is if the starting QB for the gophers got injured during practice word of it would be out there which would let you adjust your lineup accordingly. Thats not the case with wrestling where sometimes its hard to get results of tournaments days after they've happened.

    I guess I'm not going to get into a pissing match about this its really not that big deal and Im sure Im not the only one missing out because of this, but I really think it wouldn't hurt you guys to be more open to the ideas of others instead of just determining how things are.

    wouldn't matter as you are stuck with the guy for the week anyway...

    that being said, that is why we have a commissioner....

    Brother Lost,
    Yeah, but if your QB got hurt in warm-ups, or more realistically, in the 1st quarter, you wouldn't get to claim the back-up and his stats in the 2nd half. No fantasy league that I know of operates that way. The various risk factors (injury, last minute benching, head-case, federal indictment) are all part of what makes playing different (and more fun if not fucking maddening!) than just using the Monday AM stats to claim your team. You can't take this game too seriously bro, especially if you (as I believe you have said in the past) you are also really wrestling for a collegiate team. This game should be a stress reliever for you my friend, not an additional burden.

    Brother Lost,
    Please forgive me if I sound overly paternalistic, and feel free to tell me to go fuck myself if you want, but I hope you enjoy every minute of being a competitor that you can. Believe me, as someone who can never get on the mat to go balls out EVER again, you have the rest of your life to be a spectator. The time you have being a warrior is very, very short, and will end before you know it, but you will remember it , for better or worse, for the rest of your life.

    if not, go for a move you said you would never try...your coach will kick your ass but you will remember it, trust me...
