GWJCFFL Chatter Thread

Don't much see the point of a fantasy league that nobody talks about, so how's about some talk?

* Only 3 undefeated teams left. 3 un-victorious teams. And 6 in the middle. What a perfectly boring bell curve.

* JimmDogg's currently the top dog by a few points, but looking at rosters top to bottom, Bagga is the team that probably scares me the most at this point in the season.

* Poor Swampy. 0-2 with 120 points scored - significantly more than two 1-1 teams ahead of him, and a bit more than a third. Swampy should have his trainers look at Javon Walker's knee though.

* As JimmDogg noted, Stric is hording quarterbacks. It's not hard to understand a team named after the 49ers being a tad jumpy about the quarterback position. I expect to see some neat personnel packages with Dilfer as an H-back.

* Doesn't it suck to be a Culpepper owner right now? It won't last, but the bottom has been hit right now.

* As soon as I can load team pages without refreshing 6 times, FOX will start crawling out of my doghouse

He has 3 defenses. That IS scary.

Seriously, his team is awesome. It would be awesomer if he could start 3 RBs and 2 Defs.

PS My point gravey train is about to pull into it's first stop with Palmer finally facing a good defense. He can't carry me every week. I am screwed if Kevin Jones can't get it going. Hines Ward is not going to catch 2 TDs every game.

Brandon Jacobs = TD league Fantasy GOLD.

Having all those RBs will pay off for Bagga when the injuries start rolling in.

That's when the teams with depth separate from the teams that just have good starting lineups.

I don't get the 3 defenses thing either though.

My ears! The burning!

The three defenses is simply a case of having picked two up, and at the very end of the draft I noticed that another defense was laying around that could be a bargaining chip in trade negotiations. I have the extra spot on my roster, may as well fill it with something concrete like a defense. Far as all the RB's go, I've learned over the years that you can never have enough running backs. In the beginning stages, it's hard to decide who to play sometimes but it's worth it when injuries hit as Legion alluded to. RB is the highest-scoring and most injury prone position in fantasy terms, far as I can tell. And you're damn right my team scares you all! PH34R!

It would be easier to talk about it if I could access my team and/or see my scores. I grabbed both QBs because I couldn't decide on one and was getting rid of two players that were on IR anyways.

Loading for me just dandy Stric, not working for you right now?

Bullsh*t. I tried about 30 times to put a new WR in and f*cking FoxSports would not let me. Thats the first I heard of my scores and my lineup cause I can't see it thanks to sh*tty FoxSports.

Worst $20 I ever spent, and that includes the transvestite hooker I thought was a chick!

OK, well that explains it. I understand that completely.

It seems very random as to when it loads fine and when it acts like a little bitch.

I have a problem in the #2 league where the Injured List isn't working correctly too. Commish forums indicate that it's one of many problems still happening all over. There's tons of talk of incorrect week 1 scores - I'm afraid to whip out a calculator and look at ours, as I might not like what it reveals...

The main page and my team page load fine, however I would like to be able to see how my game went last week. I looked Sunday night and it had Marc Bulger with only 4 points despite the fact that he had 216 yards and a touchdown. So I would like to look back and see that they actually had the correct point values for my players last week but every time I try to view week 2 scores it simply takes me to a blank screen. All I can tell is that apparently I lost my game by five points.

While yes fox sucks I am glad we are sticking with them as switching to a new league with slightly different rules didn't seem like a great idea, but god does foxsports SUCK!

Up for grabs girls: Jacksonville or Philadelphia's defense. Make me an offer. I'd prefer a RB, but I'll consider any good offer.

Whore. They don't even belong to you!

This league blows!

They don't? What happened?

They don't? What happened?

There was some confusuon when the waivers went nuts and you picked them up although Swampy still owned them. Since then, the waivers were reset and Swampy got Jacksonville back. Sanj, you have the San Diego and Philly defense.

You have San Diego and Philly. Same two defenses you drafted.

Swampy drafted Jacksonville.

EDIT: Yeah, what Certs Roll said.

OK, so you're not really a whore. FoxSports, on the other hand....

I am still contemplating a team name change.

I think "Bye" would be more appropriate at this point in time.

Ok, at this moment, what is the problem with the Fox site?

I can:

- Make Waiver Pick-ups
- Make trade offers
- Make changes to my line-up
- See score results for both week one and week two
- See who is on a bye week
- See all the stats for each player and see pertinent news

So right now, when you login and check your team, what isn't working? Cause I've been on multiple times a day throughout the last week and it's been solid every time. Are we complaining about new issues or the stuff that had been broken a week and a half ago?

Throughout the week, I have had:

- Problems making lineup changes (error messages about players not being on the roster and whatnot)
- Many pages still require a handful of refreshes to get them to come up with everything
- Certain pages have shown incorrect score/standings info
- Injured List in the #2 league broken
- Standings in the #2 league were broken until, like, yesterday
- Scoring errors persist (all 2-point conversions missing, some defensive/special team TDs missing)

As of what remains an issue right now, the scoring errors, intermittent page loading issues, and #2 league's Injured List are still unfixed.

A lot depends on WHEN you access the site. When the traffic's high, making lineup changes often doesn't work, if you can even get the player part of the page to show up at all.

The light at the end of the tunnel seems to be, with so many people abandoning the FOX ship, traffic to the site has continued to decline.

Now Legion, if the site works for me it should work for everyone and anyone who says otherwise is obviously crazy. That's what I think

Hmm...so the norm then?

OK, I made some changes, and had to try multiple times but I was able to do them. I made a few good pickups I think and have a starting lineup set.

So I'm ready for week 3, 0-2 with 120 points scored. WTF?

I have had the same problems as Legion, he's not crazy. But it is getting better, probably because people are abandoning ship.

Non-activity/website problem alert.

Sanjuro didn't really turn in a lineup. He had no kicker and start Jamal Lewis and Andre Johnson when he had replacements on the bench.

I reminded him twice on Friday and he's dissapeared since, must be a woman.

Wow, Legion actually sat Leftwich in favor of Kyle Orton... who threw 149 yards and 5 INT's. Considering Leftwich was hurting I don't blame him but... ouch. And when facing Alexander AND Holt in monster days? Double ouch. Let me know if you need a hug, homie.

Swampy is 25 points behind Certs Fresh with McCardell and Kennison left to play. Could be close!

Yeah. I just wanted a decent outing from Orton, not some 5 INT action.

But it's probably just as well. Even with the point swing starting Leftwich would've made, it probably won't matter against the kind of points Alexander and Holt posted. Unlucky game, oh well. I'll lick my wounds as a 2-1 team.

Dammit, McCardell scares the hell out of me, 9 points already!

yeah, I'd be a factor if I had a running game.

You only need 10 more points to win, not bad for a guy who started Alstott

You've got Chris Brown on your bench, with Travis Henry looking at a 4 week suspension his stock is WAY up. And you have Portis... and Parker, you'll be fine

McCardell should be mine, you hear me? MINE!!! (Welcher.)
