Quiet time

I was talking to my friend and he brought up something I noticed, but never really thought about. When people talk shit on twitter or facebook about how great their team is, if their team starts to trail they SHUT THE FUCK UP. Remember the girl I told you about before, yeah, her timeline went radio silent right about the time the redskins got up 14-0. HAHA! I love it, but my other friend who is a Colts fan and tweets every first down was SUUUUPER quiet yesterday. At first I thought my twitter wasn't updating but then I checked the game, and saw they were trailing the Jags 14-7, and then it hit, yup, people tend to SHUT THE FUCK UP when their team is trailing.

Donovan did it! I can't believe this. I am so happy right now! Words just can't describe how good it felt to beat the eagles.

Who can you trust?

I'm trying to win a survivor league and maintain my perfect status as I am 2 for 2 in past leagues. I've always won for a couple of reasons, and I've decided to share them today.


Never pick a team that you root for. It clouds your judgment.

Avoid picking a division game if you can. These teams play each other so much that no one has a real advantage, and the more you play someone the harder it is for one team to keep winning.

Beware the winless/terrible team at home. I'm pretty sure 99% of all big special teams plays for bad teams liked blocked FGs, punt/kickoff return TDs happen at home. You don't need that.

Don't pick against the Oakland Raiders. EVER. They will probably lose, but there are days when they are the best team in the league. I can't explain it.

With that said. Hopefully I can pull this one off this year. And if anyone has other tips please share. We're in this together!

This week, the packers better beat the Lions. I hope I don't get burned by my own rules.

P.S.

I hate traditional fantasy football. I just suck at it. This year I got Adrian Peterson and my team still sucks. It's very disheartening. Oh well...
