    All fantasy "experts" are morons

    My decision was based on what I thought to be a serious injury. Uh, most owners sit a guy, not matter how good he is, if the injury is reported to be significant. those morons on the ESPNEWS fantasy insider show said hasselbeck was. i win if cutler doesn't get hurt, that's all there is to it, and the person in first got extremely lucky. Cutler would have scored at least 6 points for me, c'mon.

    I know of all those websites and there stupid player projections and rankings.You have to be foolish to pay for rotowire.

    • So what you're saying here is not that it's the fault of the people who knew that the oblique injury might have a serious impact on Hasselbeck's performance (and it did have some), it's that you need someone to blame other than bad luck with Cutler getting hurt. Listen, you would have won if he didn't get hurt, sure, but he did, so deal with it like many others have done in this crazy, injury-prone season and move on.

      Oh, and sometimes you have to listen to your gut. You said you knew he would do well against a terrible Cle defense, yet you still sat him and started Cutler against a red-hot Det D while the team is struggling...that was just poor management on your part.

    • So you got unlucky dude. No one can predict that Cutler will go down with an injury, or that your particular opponent will have a good game vs you. Just take the lose for what it is, stop trying to blame people. Injury reports are usually reported from the team itself. The "experts" react to public information. If your mad at the incorrect injury info, then get mad at the coach. All I'm saying is that when you make a decision on who to play, make it be YOUR decision. If you are mad at someone else for what happened with your team, then you did not taking enough control of your own team.

      PS. I don't pay for any of the webpages i listed, I'm really not THAT into winning at FF. But they do have free news reports that will give you an idea of whos playing and who is not, especially right before game time.
