Yes, my fantasy football team is doing crap. Currently Im sitting at 1 win 9 losses, with no hope of making the final four. Most the losses have been
almost comical, so hopefully everyone can get a laugh at my expense.
Week One- Aussie Thunder (67pts) vs Team Shapro (89pts)
Despite being the last player to pick their first round player (thankyou rigged random draft), I was looking forward to the first round, that was
until halfway through the sunday games.
Highlight- Matt Ryans 17 points...yay me for foreseeing this
Lowlights- Steve Slatons 2 points, he was my first pick.....TJ Houshmandzadehs 4 points...forgot he wasnt used to playing on the west coast. Team
Shapros kicker (Neil Rackers) outscoring all of my players, except Matt Ryan....wtf?
Week Two- Aussie Thunder (94pts) vs Team Starry (86pts)
I won, I friggin won....I thought at this point that things were looking up for my team
Highlights- I won, Marques Coltson, 21 points went nuts on Philadelphias defense, Matt Ryan another 18 points, Kellen Winslows 15 points (genius pick
at this point for TE)
Lowlights- Dolphins defense got 0 points, but who cares I beat the best team in the league
Week Three- Aussie Thunder (54) vs Team Sloppy Slappys (75)
You know its a bad week when your defense outscores 2 of your running backs, 2 wide recievers and your quarterbacks combined score
Hihglights- My 2 highest scores being my Chargers defense 13 points and my Kicker Mason Crosby with 11 points
Lowlights- Everyone else on my team except Steve Slatons 10 points
Week Four- Aussie Thunder (73) vs Canadian Mod Squad (93)
Even when I play half decent I lose......and no Matt Ryan= FAIL
Highlights- Steve Slaton is finally doing something 18 points, Calvin Johnson 14 points (2nd pick finally achieving double figures), Broncos defense
against Dallas 13 points.....good pick up for me
Lowlights- Everyone else especially that douche Mark Sanchez....Ok, I get it you're a rookie, but -1pts...how the hell does a starting QB get -1
points....I mean wtf, double facepalm, deskface..etc....I cant believe I overlooked 12 odd QB's for you. Oh and everyone else played crap to
Week Five- Aussie Thunder (106) vs Uranus Sleepers (114)
Finally broke 100...hold on I lost...Nooooooooo. Bunch I hold you responsible for this, possible match fixing.
Highlights- Matt Ryan again 25 points, best 3rd round pickup ever.....Winslow 22 points, TJ (cant be bothered typing out the rest of his name) 19
Lowlights- Calvin Johnson forgets gets kidnapped by the Uranus Sleeprs owner, and gets 0 points, costing me the win....either that or he was injured.
And that damn Vikings defense racks up 20 points against the Rams, who suck balls by the way. Also, Cedric Benson for sitting on my bench and scoring
19 points against friggin Blatimore of all teams, again which wouldve gifted me the win
Week Six- Aussie Thunder (81) vs Team Starry (122)
Yes I wasnt worried, I was long overdue for a win and I had beaten Starry already this year.....I hold Tennesee responsible for this loss, gifting Wes
Welker a career game and not scoring
Hihglights- Marques Colston 22 points, Broncos defense 18 points....
Lowlights- Steve Slaton for scoring 18 points after I benched him, Wes Welker for scoring 27 points for Starry, Ryan Longwell 16 points who also
contributed to my loss and Calvin Johnson for finally figuring out that he was injured. Cedric Benson realising he isnt that good after all
Week Seven- Aussie Thunder (80) vs Bushido Kanji (116)
Anyone starting to see a trend of teams scoring big against me? Its a conspiracy I reckon
Highlights- Benson with 24 points (finally), Slaton 18 points (finally), Dan Carpenter 10 points...
Lowlights- Glen Coffee 0 points for getting injured, Matt Ryan 9 points starting to suck....Percy "Who the hell is he" Harvin for scoring 26 points
for Bushido...and again the friggin defense, for Bushido...this time it was the Eagles 21 points....wtf?
Week Eight- Aussie Thunder (34) Team Johnson (68)
I was so confident here, a guy who hasnt checked his team for weeks, and me with my gladiators....
Highlights- Nil (unless you count Marques Colstons 14 points)
Lowlights- Broncos defense -2 pts, Randy McMichael 1 pts, Steve "Fumblesaurus" Slaton -1 pts, TJ 2 pts, Sidny Rice for not turning up on my team at
all leaving me one reciever down, Ryan for sucking more again 9 points, and Tony Romo for Team Johnson 21 who realised that he CAN actually throw a
Week Nine- Aussie Thunder (73) vs Canadian Mod Squad (83)
It can only get better right?.....No
Highlights- Benson again with 17 points....I dropped Ryan for Hasselbeck 15 points, good move.
Lowlights- Steve "Im so sorry to my fantasy owners" Slaton 8 measely points, Colston 4 points, Todd Heap 2 points, Torry "why did i pick you in my
team" Holt 1 point
Week Ten- Aussie Thunder (75) vs Cuba Raft Riders (99)
So, Im coming u against the second best team...who incidentally is my main suspect in rigging the draft (he got second pick this year, first last
Highlights- Sidney Rice 20 points, yay....TJ 16 points, Winslow 10 points...how could I have possibly lost this?
Lowlights- Leaving Fred Jackson on the bench and watching him score TD's and accumulate ridiculous return yards and rushing yards...he scored 29
points which I couldve won on. For the opponent, Brett Favre for not dying of old age yet and amassing 17 points...the Ravens defense for reminding
everyone that the Browns still suck and scoring 24 points...the defense curse continues
So four games to go....and hopefully I can win at least one
Anyone had similar Fantasy Football Failures?
