What do you mean "where'd I go?"

And, no need to get into a long-winded retort about Charles/CJ. You were really annoying me that night and I figured I would try to do the same to you. I know CJ sucks and Charles is good.

Still think he is an injury waiting to happen, but I guess it doesn't matter much to you anymore.

I really wish Tennessee O-line was better and CJ had a brain. Physically he could still dominate IRL.

I'm still hoping against hope that he becomes a serviceable option again... 8-12 points a week would be fine. It is hard for me to grasp the idea that this guy is going to continue with the putrid 3-4 point efforts every week.

Then again, I watch the Titans play, I see his indecisiveness/tentativeness, that awful line, curious gameplanning and a general lack of a fullback and I wonder if he'll be spending the remainder of the season on my bench.

I knew the dangers when I drafted him. I realized he had totally underperformed last year. But, I thought even a worst case scenario would see him getting that 8-12 points a week to make him, at worst, a solid RB2. The guy isn't even being used in the passing game anymore.

Very disheartening. I'm glad that this is the only league I took him in.

It's unfortunate because on another team he could be an elite RB1 again. TEN is dysfunctional as a run game, problems are greater than CJ.

What you need to understand is that SCY is picking up players that he's not playing just because they are available, so in the event that there is an injury to said player they obviously no longer have to go through the waivers.

Yeah, I don't like the rule.

Honestly, I wish the waiver rule would get changed completely, get rid of this rolling waiver wire and to FAAB. I've been saying it for a while, but only a couple/few at most really want it, everyone else hasn't been for it or against it, it's been an idea brushed by really.

I'm all for it, as well as SCY, JB, BB4L, just need to convince 2 more guys but it's too late even if we did unfortunately..next year we 100% must implement it. this waiver system is full of annoying leaks and just sucks.

Pretty sure both me and Silent Killer voted for it too. Not sure but I remember it coming up and people voting on it and than nothing ever happening. You'd have to back and check tho.

How does the current waiver wire even work? Says I've got 12 again but I had 11 or 12 the first week of the season. Is it just randomly selected or does your draft position decide it?

It should be a rolling waiver where the guy who's #1 on the list gets a guy and he goes back up to 12, and keeps gaining spots on the waiver wire as everyone else picks guys up.

I know I said I felt dirty doing it, but this is the best waivers Yahoo (you get what you pay for) offers. First Game-Tuesday is an option, but locking all pickups on Thursday night is pretty lame considering a ton of injury info doesn't come out until Friday. But I guess you can argue it's fair since it screws over everyone equally.

I don't see how what I'm doing is any more manipulative or unfair than people (myself included) making pickups early Wednesday morning when waivers clear. (BTW THIS IS SOMETHING FAAB WOULD FIX) Obviously not everybody can or wants to be awake at that time. As opposed to all day Monday when anyone could have made a pickup before I did which has been 30 mins before the game usually.

Or rather then locking everyone we could just all agree not to take advantage of this system exploit
