    TRUCKIN WORMS PRESS RELEASE

    Due to continued losses and overall poor performance, there has been a major shakeup in the Truckin Worms team lineup. all players were fined 100,000.00 and several players have been fired and replaced.

    the team manager, Alex, had this to say "these people really sucked and i hope they all burn" "hopefully, with these new players, we can pull ourselves out of the hole we have dug"

    the truckin worms are currently 3-4 on the season.

    Actually Wormy you are still 3-3 cause the current game ain't over yet! While all my players have played you still have football legend Jerry Rice and Oakland's place kicker scoring points for you tonite! I of course hope they will fall short :p :D :D :D !!!!!!

    Gawd it's hard being both a fantasy coach and a fan. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: As a fan of the Denver Broncos I'm pulling for Oakland to keep the division close and not let KC get too much of a lead. :eek: :eek: On the other hand, being in a close game with them pesky Baldwins I'm hoping that Priest Holms and the KC Def squash the Raiders. :mad: :mad:
    What's a guy to do. :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

    Hey Mikey
    I did notice that you had a KC player, but if you compare your guy to mine you'll see that yours might as well sit on the bench. :D :D :D He has only averaged 10.82 for the season, whereas Holmes averages 43.84 a game. And that's not even counting the KC defense. Without a major upset the Raiders don't have a chance. Good for the Demans, bad for the Broncos. :) :( :) :( :) :(

    OK guys here's a rookie question for you. I understand the wins and losses but what do the total points mean? Are they worth anything?

    I think they use the Total Points if there's a tie between Win %.

    That's the only thing I can see it used for :) :) :)

    Boy! I almost had the perfect night. KC played well enough to give my players the points they needed and Oakland came close to winning the game. Oh Well, it's early in the season.

    Mikey, your Tony Gonzalez made some very nice playes last night. Had me worried for awhile.

    Robin, I think that it was up to the commisioner aka Mikey to determin how the points came into play. Some leagues seem to use them in different ways, determined when the league was formed. The best I could come up with was that they would be used in a tiebreaker at the end of the season. Try going to http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/football/frules/frules-16.html to see how that works.

    NG, you set up the league, if you don't know, nobody does. :D :D :D :D

    Rich, I'd give you a pointer or two but since we're playing each other next week it probably wouldn't be a good idea. :D :D :D :D Actually I was scouting your team and you have some very good players. You just need to get them in the game and prune back the ones who aren't producing. Oops! I probably shouldn't have said that. If you win you owe me one. :D :D :D :D

    Wormy thank you for giving up Michael Vick, he should be a good insurance plan for those final few games and the playoffs when all the other players are beat up and nursing injuries. Did you know when you put him on waivers that he was due back on the 12th of Nov.? :)
