Now I know what they were talking about. That 1.04 was a hot spot, and there were several HUUUUUUGGGEEEE trades that were SOOOOOOOOO close to happening. One 3-team blockbuster and one 5-team blockbuster that were both super close to happening that would've sent top 10 players all over the place.

Man what a crazy couple days on the trade front. Good times fellas.
One day...your dream will come true.

Congrats on the trade. I am a bit surprise on how much the 4th pick went for compared to the top 3 pick.
MB!!! for 4-te

Why? Who were you offering?

ps...please leave something for the people drafting after 1.09.

It really depends on what MB3 does over the next few years compared to Forte. I like Forte's situation right now and for the future, and MB3 looks shaky since they just brought in 2 young guys. I was worried that he would be a flex player at best, and I need more than that.

When I originally traded for MB3 last year, I was hoping he would end up being a cornerstone of my team, but I just don't see that happening now, so I decided to cut my losses and get a young RB in a good situation in Forte.

Only time will tell who won out on this deal...

Well, I think you could've gotten a lot more for him. MB3 generally falls into the 7-8 range in dynasty rankings whilst Forte should settle in around 40.

I can't speak for Pdub, but I bet you could've gotten Steve Smith AND Forte for MB3 had that been your offer.

Just hope Forte turns out less like Brandon Jackson and more like Joseph Addai. Both were young RBs landing in a great situations and picked 4th in the rookie draft.

damn, i know you guys were offering all types of bounty for pdubs players, but steve smith alone with a lesser throwin(than 4-te) seems more appropriate.

I would jump at the idea of getting smith and forte. Accepting the deal to give away a stud wr and a more than likely starting is a hard sell on me.

I do think MB!!! should have garnered more value though.

On a different note, lets discuss the pros and cons of a 2 round rookie draft.

Cons:

-Takes away from free agency. Changing the dynamic of acquiring players.This could mean many many things.

-1 round rook draft seems slightly less important. Taking some pressure and strategy away from that almighty single pick you are allotted.



Pros:

-more draft...more fun!!!!

-helps fill the optional taxi squad

Those are a few ideas off the top of my head.

Three things:

#1) PICK #9 IS UP FOR TRADE for players, DD, pick + DD, etc. I won't be making the #9 pick for awhile.

#2) I also like the idea of a 2 round rookie draft

#3) I just got the 4-TE slang.

Yeah, some people might not want that second round rookie. Alot of the players that would be picked would have little impact on some teams and would just be cut. Let the people that want the leftover rookies bid on them. I like the one round approach and the free-for-all that comes after.

I don't like the idea of a 2 round rookie draft. I barely know enough names to get me through a one round draft. Football news takes time to get up here to Canada. If there was a second round I would end up doing something stupid like draft a Gator or sumpin (wth is a gator anyways? Some backwoods way of saying crocodile?).

Since your an expert in Homosexuals what exactly is a waitor?
I will not deny...I am a gay-pert...which explains my strangle hold on the league.

As for waitor...http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Waitor
