Your friend just wants to see your rankings.

since when does someone save their rankings to a disk but not the hard drive? Just give him the USA today projections or something and let him think they are yours. ;-)

I would screw with the rankings until they no longer resembled mine then hand them over. ;-D

No way do you give it to him.

1. There are lots of other fantasy resources besides you that he can mooch off of.

2. If he sees your rankings, that's a major unfair advantage. It's one thing to try and get him back on a level playing field but its another to give him an edge.

3. A lot of the value of doing a spreadsheet is the research that goes in to it. If my projections got wiped out tomorrow, I would still have a pretty good idea of who I want to draft and when. If he put in that much effort, he's not screwed.

Exactly (all 3 points).

I felt bad for this guy until you said he "only" wants to see yours if you inlcude the PPG. That's like when I got panhandled one time by a guy who asked for "at least a dollar". What, 50 cents isn't worth his time?

Wonder what he'd say if you made it conditional on seeing his finished product? I bet he'd settle for your simple ist then!

Biggest concern here is not hom seeing your projections ('cause I'm sure he really would tweak 'em), but rather that he gets inside your head on the sequence in which you'd draft people.

He's more than a little out of line, if you ask me.

Wow. That's bold.

I was gonna say share maybe a top 100 or something and then just kick his arse if he's obviously stealing your sleepers, but beggars can't be choosers and he's gone over the line.

Go like this, "No you can't have my rankings with ppg you cheater."

I would just like to point out that I invoked the "beggars can't be choosers" analogy exactly one minute before cmchmpa2 did. Slowpoke.
