I haven't heard anything about Jethro being out next season. He needs a break and will be able to get a better roster by trading with me. I'm bored with drafting near the bottom most seasons. Plus, trading for the #1 pick is actually asking for the worst overall draft positioning overall. The last 2 picks of this draft are normally terrible players. I don't understand the hate on this one for the most part. But, I do get it that my team finished first last season and that I will get the best player in the draft this season.
Sorry that the trade made you feel like quitting gunner. dh. . . give me a break. With your skills and excellent draft position this season you know that you should be able to build a better team than me. BTW the trade was made on 10/23 way before my team won the league championship.
i enjoy being in leagues with you vancem so dont take it personally....but you gotta be kidding me
" He needs a break and will be able to get a better roster by trading with me."
stop...wilt(or lebron/jordan/rodman/etc.) will always give you a better chance of winning than the other two guys you get from drafting in a lower draft slot...#1 pick is the best pick and everyone knows that...dont play dumb
"Plus, trading for the #1 pick is actually asking for the worst overall draft positioning overall."
if by worst you mean the absolute best..then yes
"The last 2 picks of this draft are normally terrible players"
the last round is a total crapshoot....a guy drafted with the first pick in the 6th round last draft may go with the 24th pick of the 6th round next draft...and the player pool is so deep that if you draft a "terrible" player than its no ones fault but your own
"I don't understand the hate on this one for the most part"
pretty simple....its an unfair trade...hell its not even a trade...you just took advantage of an owner who really doesnt care about winning...if jethro didnt want to pick first(which i get) then he should have just told ncih to put him at the bottom of the draft(and if ncih wouldnt allow it he could simply say hes not returning and then re-join the league - thus putting him at the bottom with all the other new owners(which would be a better pick than the one your giving him anyway))
no one wants to see one of the best owners- and the returning champ - be given the first overall pick(again the BEST possible pick) for absolutely nothing
thats why gunner quit and i wont be surprised if more do
"dh. . . give me a break. With your skills and excellent draft position this season you know that you should be able to build a better team than me"
what? your humility is charming and all...but please stop with the bullsh!t...ill prob be drafting like 14-20...which isnt excellent at all...so thats false...and come on now...you win just as much(if not more) than me in this league....im gonna take on the challenge no matter what but it bugs me that you fleeced jethro and want to act like there was nothing wrong with it
