How do you guys deal with this problem?

Postby Dude86 » Thu Feb 12, 2004 10:42 pm

I'm talking about the problem that every fantasy owner deals with every year... ROUTING FOR PLAYERS THAT YOU HATE. For instance if you're a Red Sox fan do you refuse to draft Yankees? and if you do draft them, how do you route for them to perform well?

I dislike Barry Bonds and so I usually draft him lower then most other people. I always like having Marlin players on my team because I watch so many of their games. But I do hate it when fantasy players are playing against my Marlins. I can never decide who to route for. :-/

I had Mariano Rivera on my team last year, nothing worse then needing a save when the Yankees are playing the Sox. Makes me root against my fantasy team, damn yankees.

A guy in my league rejected a trade for A-Rod, involving Jeter, because he doesn't want to have Yankees on his team. He said it was the best offer he'd received for him too, and probably would hvae accepted if not for the Yankee-factor. I HATE it when poeple are like that. It makes trading even harder...

I don`t waste my time rooting for my offensive players, but I do route for my pitchers and its even more fun to route against opposing pitchers. :-B

I have no problems drafting any player out there. Whoever it takes to get the job done. :-)
