There's the references!
We got one guy called "great gretzky" and one guy who made a hockey trade reference. I think it was impossible to have a large discussion embed with the name "the great one" (even if he was referring to a wrester) and not end up with hockey somewhere.
I completely concur with the last post, RawDawg. I think the point is that we all have best-guesses- but we don't really know. And the point about injured players and sleeper candidates is real.
For instance, this year, I love Edwin Jackson- unfortunately for me, so does another owner in my league. Normally, people could get Jackson for a late-round flier or even a free-agent. In this particular case I would probably have to give up Randy Wolf for him. I won't-- but I believe there's a shot he's as good as Wolf this year... if I want to take that shot, and I'm wrong, I expect other owners to give me the opportunity to screw myself. It's my bed, I'll lie in it.
I think we're finding that experienced owners is the key. It's not so much "would you do it?" it's "do you think he knows what he's doing?"
When it's a newbie- the answer could be "no, he doesn't" and that just sucks-- someone took advantage of him. But if it's an experienced owner-- maybe he's right, maybe he's wrong-- but he's got to have the keys to his own car.
