DRAGONMOUNT

A WHEEL OF TIME COMMUNITY

Recommended Posts

I didn't see any recent NFL discussion threads so I thought I'd start one up, anyone here actively following the NFL and all the recent crazy things that just happened?  Zeke suspension, Watkins/Gaines trade, Matthews/Darby trade??

It is that time of year, isn't it?

 

Not much up on the news, but do like to watch the games.

 

Got bits of tonight's pre-season game.

 

Yup yup, preseason games have been nice, the Niners was a weird one, we had a lot of negative signs, but a lot of positive ones too, very bipolar team, especially with our depth.

watkins trade was a travesty lolbills

Idk if I agree.  They went from Watkins to Matthews (unluckily he's now injured to lol), from Darby to EJ Gaines, another slight down grade, but for two slight downgrades, they picked up a 2nd and a 3rd and only gave away a 6th.  Great for rebuilding reasons.

The Mathews trade (which was ok) doesn't effect the logistics of the Watkins deal. Dealing him for Gaines & moving from the sixth to second is not good compensation for Watkins. If the Bills wanted to tank, they probably shouldn't have paid Tyrod Taylor 30 million this offseason.

I understand acquiring picks is a need for them, but Watkins was a 24 year old wideout with top 5 ceiling. Even with his injury history over the last two years, he was a much more valuable commodity. They sold way too low.

That's fair, only reason I think they'd do that is if they knew Watkins had no desire to resign for the Bills.

That's how I took it. I figure they're conceding the season, gathering draft picks, changing the locker room culture, and making cap space.

Oh hey

 

Is there going to be a DM fantasy football league?

 

I forgot to sign up for my usual league two years in a row now because I never check that email account anymore.  They usually don't draft until the last minute so I'll hop in that if not, would rather play with people I have talked to on a semi-regular basis since 2004.

I'm down as long as its not on ESPN haha, even though I love the site's fantasy football.

 

Also your guy's thoughts on the rookie QBs?  I really like Kizer and Trubisky, thought Watson was meh, and don't expect much from Mahomes this year tbh.

I also enter every season completely uninformed and my draft picks will suck and you're guaranteed to beat me in the first three match-ups before I start analyzing stats to nab all the free agents who will rock the house after early season injuries play out.

My problem is that I look at the people I think will develop and pick them  but frequently don't pull the trigger on starting my hunches and then go "how could I have left those 25 points on my bench. Curse you Ingram!!!" Also picking AP in the first last year didn't help any.

 

does Yahoo make you draft an entire team? Meaning a Defense and a Kicker?

I think so? Not entirely sure though.

 

And lol, I have that problem all the time.

I've got a league with several spots open.  A few people from here are in it, a few from other sites/real life.  Free league - shoot me your emails if you want in (on ESPN)

How do u fantasy

I usually start by picturing myself as fantastically wealthy, perhaps after winning the Powerball, as at this point in my life, that's the only way I'm gonna get the girls I fantasize about into my life in the proper roles. Then I picture an exotic location, like the deck of my yacht in the Mediterranean. The music is playing, the girls are drunk and dancing, one saunters over to me where I relax on the lounge. Her friend joins her, and they...

    • Yes but there is opening yourself to channel and then there is a quick unintentional use.  If you notice before Rand became a channeler, fully aware of what he was doing and willing try to embrace the power, all you get are the side effects from channeling (the taking chances etc,,) but not the filth feeling.  After book 1, when the using the power and the side effects happened near the same time, all he gets is the filth.  The difference is he knows he can channel and needs to embrace the source to channel.  Just like the women who are starting to channel never seem to notice the warmth of touching the female half until they survive the side effects and become aware what they are doing.  A wilder like Nyn, had she stayed in the Two Rivers, never would of felt the feeling of opening herself to the source since she had built up a block, so it might have to do with you have to open yourself up to the power to feel the good or bad.     In one of Rand's lives in book 2 I believe he was a member of the Queen's guards and was lucky, he thought later he understood why but he didn't care.  He was suffering from touching the male half but was basicly a wilder and it was never said he was feeling the filth.  So I think a lot has to do with someone who channels but doesn't really know it or is never trained how to do it aren't fully opening themselves up enough to feel the filth or warmth.  They are incapable of doing anything more then a quick touch of the surface.   It's possible Rand would of started to feel nausea when he accidently channeled and not probably not understand why.  But there seems to be a difference between inadvertently channeling and intentionally channeling.
