Horrible take re:LBell. It was crystal clear he wasn't playing. "He said he was going to." ? Who cares? There was zero upside to him playing and zero reason for him to play. if you drafted him, YOU screwed up. He's not the biggest bust by any stretch. Also, he still had big trade value well into the season. Sour grapes for being a sucker. lol

I think David Montgomery's usage sucked for all the hype. He spent the majority of time ob my bench.

Regulators!! I don't know how to email directly but I need some serious regulators!! I entered a 10 team first year family, friend, girlfriends league. $50 buy in online draft, pot of $500. No payouts were spoken of before the league. Playoffs start week 15, prior to week 14 commish posted payouts of $450 pot, 1st place $225, 2nd place $150, 3rd place $50, 4th place $25. Conteoversey and conversation occured about the commissioner playing for free and pocketing a $50 commissioner fee. Is a commissioner fee abosultute garbage, trash, steaming and a bunch of crap? ( I could send 4 pictures of conversation that the commish has no intent of paying out a $500 pot).
