I might debut in the NFL one this year .... have been playing it for a few years but generally don't do well due to the early morning starts

More of a night owl ... and subsequently sleep through my VC / C options ... but will still be playing it and tracking stats as per normal ...
I debuted last season and finished 22nd out of roughly 2000 to 3000 with 2 SuperCoach scores leagues featuring in the top 5 (1st and 5th) and the majority of participants featuring in the top 100-200.

Sounds good ... I actually used a lot of the info from this site in conjunction with my own stats, player knowledge etc after the season had started last year ...

- Unfortunately though.... I only stumbled across this site after the season had started when looking for an NBA comp to enter ..
- So ... in short I can attest to the valuable knowledge bank of members on this site and their willingness to share ...

Saw the replay this arvo and wasn't surprised at the result .... Wright is in some pretty good form at the moment ....
Has been my favourite player due to his colourful attire/appearance and antics since I started watching around 2014 when he made a late run in that year’s world championship. Also with his recent from regarding amassing 4 titles in the past 2 months, I wonder if he has finally settled on a set of darts after his constant adjustments.

Mentioned previously in the TV thread but I think it suits this thread better regarding Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast. Some great recent episodes featuring Charles Fox, Beverly D’Angelo, Live Singalong and Trivia Show and the 60th Anniversary Twilight Show Panel.

Also would appreciate any suggestions or recommendations for other podcasts to potentially listen to.

One to store away in the memory banks for next year. I played the Tour de France fantasy and found it pretty interesting. The website was pretty good. It wasn’t that onerous and I played it pretty casually. I didn’t do that well but will be better for the run (as they say).
