I am just documenting facts in a fairly self-deprecating and, in any event, satirical way. I do not sound nearly like the ignorant, whiny bitch that you do when things do not go your way. No begging for rule changes when things do not go my way, no myopic claims that my team sustains injuries at a higher rate than others' every time I have a player go down, and no need for extracurricular league activities to maintain relevance when my team sucks (I just own it and, notwithstanding, need to remain integrally involved, indeed, despite its being pretty damn unfun). Heck, you do not usually even hear from me about this stuff (like last year when I,... eh-hem,... came in dead-last place). I am only noting the statistically curious hits my team is taking of late (at placekicker and receiver), not that my team has not taken further hits (but they are not that interesting or worth calling especial attention to).

Week 4 - Parkey: 0 points (against the Saints), not even an attempt in a game that was projected to be high-scoring.
 


(Mind you, this all began with...
 
Week 17 (2017) - NO placekicker: 0 points by choice
 
So, over the last five weeks, going back to last season, I have all of three points from a placekicker, and even those three were from a guy who went 1-for-3 in attempts. Is this my punishment?)
 


All I can do is laugh at this point (and flick this shit off and go and enjoy the day -- enjoying Halloween destinations on the Travel Channel with the family this morning).

 
I like to think that this is your personal statistical study to prove that karma does exist! While not wishing you ill will, I personally am enjoying it. I look forward to see what happens in week #5

No word of a lie, I tuned in this morning just in time to watch my placekicker Parkey miss an... EXTRA POINT!!!  He did have "all" of four points, mind you.

Karma!! Since I am playing you this week, I was watching his performance. Sadly for you, my kicker has 4 points at halftime.  
 
You did not even mention your injury purgatory and injury hell at RB this week.

Maybe you need to play guys like Travis who doesn't realize his players are on bye and or off suspension. Love playing a team with no defense, nice job Travis! Wouldn't of mattered as i kicked the shit out of both teams i played.  Fournette stud, Green Stud, Gordon Stud, Qbs 7 Tds.... Just praying everyone stays healthy, thats what wins a championship, staying healthy!

Been meaning to make both of these comments since last week...

Was that karma??? My winning the kicking category, that is, albeit by a hair!
 


And, with all this talk about whining about injuries, and all the injuries that are taking place (as they try to make a violent, contact sport a "safe space" like everything else instead of a field of "personal responsibility and free choice for a man to do what he wants with his own body"), let's make no mistakes... DB has been hit devastatingly hard. I do not know if any of us can match losing Cook and then Beckham, his #1's at RB and RC, in back-to-back weeks. That is rough, bro...

True.  Then I go and make a bonehead lineup mistake.  Fortunately, I don't think it cost me.

Few comments  
 
1. Feel bad for DB, last year my entire team went down, it sucks losing your season to that crap. Today Rogers, holy fuck thats a season ender for Hahn. I know Trout thrives off other peoples injuries, i dont like it at all. He who does well in the league is mainly injury free
 
2. Parsons- Nice moves, first by trading AP to Trout, he stuck it in your ass today and second dropping Landry, everyone went after him, nice move and nice game by him.  
 
3. I believe i got through this week in kicking Paks ass and barley sneaking by Trout. 11-1 baby, keep the train rolling next week against Steg!

Let's clarify a few things for our resident midget, Dr. Needledick:
 
1) I only root for injuries to you. (Aside from the major brain injury you suffered at birth)
 2) You specifically said to me that the AP trade was a total joke and I was an idiot. He goes out and has one good game and that translates into Joe taking it in the ass?
3) You're 10-1 Ahole. Be careful what you wish for playing Steg next week - his team is on the upswing with some really good recent additions.

Man, did I get LUCKY this week so far,... and I am not even talking about DB's not playing Cooper or Carr, or Frank's not submitting a lineup this week and my getting Hundley with the second pick.  ...  I picked up Buffalo's D last week with it in mind to use them this week, and with Fitzpathetic now possibly at Tampa's helm that was looking like a decent plan.  Houston is off, and Baltimore's matchup is so-so at best.  I then, while putting in my lineup for this week, got so focused on going after and streaming Tennessee against Cleveland that I totally forgot about even having Buffalo, and on my lineup card I put Tennessee, which there was a great chance of my not getting after getting Hundley with my first pick, in as my starting DU for both games and, knowing Houston was off, just mechanically typed in Baltimore for my #2.  While I was surprised and thrilled to get Hundley with my first pick, I was nervous as hell while going team-by-team and figuring out the free-agents for this week.  It is a small miracle that Tennessee fell to me in the second round.  ...  It will probably all backfire and blow up in my face, anyway.  Watch...  Cleveland will finally have a breakout game against Tennessee, and Baltimore (and Buffalo, just to put salt in the wound) will end up having stellar days.

Feder -- you can't beat me, can you?    I guess that doesn't matter because no one else can beat you and I cannot beat Pak or Trout.

Yeah dave it was a tough matchup for you missing 3/4th of my team. No fournetter, Gordon, hogan, green ect. This week may be rough a Little also but should keep rolling if my guys can stay healthy.
