I play in only one FB league with friends and am the 2 time reigning champ. I usually place well and make the playoffs and this year am 10-5 (weeks 16 - 17 playoffs) and got the #2 seed. I enjoy it, but it's nothing like baseball. I spend maybe 2 hours a week on football between watching, researching, tweaking the lineup, and getting bored or frustrated by lucky wins that benefit crap teams/owners. I spend about 20 per week on baseball and wish I had more time to do it (don't most of us since we're here?) and love every minute of it. And I'm champ of our keeper (dynasty beginning in 08) 5 years running now.

FBB is like having Christmas every day for 9 months. Some days it's like Christmas with my wife and the gifts are AWESOME. Sometime it's life Christmas with my aunt and I wanna puke. But it's constantly entertaining either way.

Had to wonder about this too, but a more fascinating question is how many of you Romo owners were affected by the Jessica Simpson jinx? ;-7

Lost $500 bucks because 10 minutes before kickoff I decided to start Kitna over Garrard.

Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. :~(

Yea. I mean I am sure some would have said to start Kitna b/c they throw a lot, but when you look at Garrard he has been very consistent it putting up good points. Also, Oakland sucks :-b

Glad I could help during the season though and at least you won some cash. In my big money league I came in second b/c the guy put up the most points he did all season in the finals. I beat him 2 times this season earlier, got me on the 3rd. Sucks because I outscored the next person by like 300 points on the season.

I had K. Jones, W. Paker, and M. Colston all go down very early in each of their respective games. What's worse is that their backups had huge days (Davenport & Duckett). Needless to say, I got crushed. I might have had a chance if not for the injuries depending on how Marshall does tonight.
