  1. lol they must have paid someone on Amazon's mechanical turk to write that.
  2. Tannenbaum didn't stand out as a man deserving of a second chance to oversee someone's entire football operation, but the Dolphins rarely make sound decisions. Tannenbaum was an abject disaster his final years in the Big Apple, though did have the good sense to hire Rex Ryan, and oversaw a roster that made back-to-back AFC Championship Games. He's probably due another shot at it. He was key in creating the poison pill contract that brought Curtis Martin to the Jets. He drafted well as a GM when Mangini was around, but the drafts went into the crapper when Rex came to town. Resigning Sanchez was a huge mistake, but odds are he was being pushed to do that by the coaching staff. Tannenbaum is great with the cap, negotiations, and acquiring players via trade. He absolutely needs talent evaluators around him though.
  3. From Peyton Manning's blurb: It was one of the worst passes you'd ever see, as it was thrown by weak-armed Peyton off his back foot and into the rain. I'm not sure that Peyton could have avoided throwing into the rain, it seemed to be raining all over the field!
  4. The original "Redskins Genocided by Rams" was nixed by the editor.
  5. It's the nighttime writer trolling the daytime writer. Also I'd say the nighttime guy was wrong, it wasn't predictable that Tannehill would bust, the Jets have been giving up points to average QB's all season long...They've given up the third most points to QB's per Yahoo.
  6. Me too, how do I become the Rotoworld weekend writer?
  7. I've always wondered if some of our fellow forum posters are the ones doing these blurbs. Corrections seem to come right after a mistake is discussed and reports of particular players seem to pop up generally right after a discussion is had on a particular player. I would assume the writers read the forums.
  8. I think the main problem today is many readers don't understand fact vs opinion, even when it's color coded for them.
  9. Oh no, not mean spirited! This website is no longer about fantasy football. Instead it's about protecting the ego of players. Now, lets all say something nice about Trent Richardson.
  10. Rob Gronkowski has just 11 catches for 116 games Wow, that injury really slowed him down.
  11. http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/4649/darren-mcfadden Darren McFadden is expected to receive a heavy workload even if Maurice Jones-Drew (hand surgery) is active for Week 3. Darren McFadden is expected to receive a heavy workload even if Maurice Jones-Drew (hand surgery) is active for Week 3. McFadden was an every-down back last week, and will remain Oakland's starter. He's going to get the majority of carries over Jones-Drew and Latavius Murray, but isn't more than a low-end RB3/FLEX against the Jets' run defense. McFadden had just 37 yards on 12 carries in Week 2. The Raiders are playing the Pats this weekend, not the Jets. The pats run defense isn't that great. (gashed in week 1 vs dolphins, did well against Vikings with no AP.)
  12. The black is the information, the blue is the opinion/entertainment. Complaining about the blue is like complaining about the ideology of a newspapers editorial department. You don't have to agree with someone's opinion to enjoy their writing. In fact it's enjoyable to see how they will defend their opinions on players even when it's not matching up with reality. Plus, you can get player news anywhere. If you just want to know who is injured/hurt hit up twitter. If you want opinions and news along with forums that include a crazy Josh Gordon thread, you have to come to rotoworld.
  13. From the Wes Welker News: According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Welker's positive test was the result of amphetamines. That's different than the typical PED excuse, "Adderall." Adderall actually is an amphetamine.
  14. The dolphins have underachieved on offense, but they've gone out and signed big names (or at least medium names...) to try to help their offense. The Jets offense has been a fantasy joke for the past 2-3 years. I won't even get into the other stuff (The coach is a foot fetishist, their starting TE got suspended last season for fapping in a target parking lot, their RB acquisition got arrested last year on a weapons charge, etc, etc)
  15. Just as I'm "led to believe" that Rotoworld's blurb writer is allergic to the Googles and/or linking source material. "Samantha Schacher says Johnny Manziel lawsuit is 'a 100% hoax'" http://www.cleveland...tml#incart_2box Rotoworld posted the story at 11:28 AM, the followup you are linking wasn't up until 1:29 PM. Schacher denied she filed the claim via Twitter at 9:35 AM. TMZ simultaneously ran her denial. Two hours earlier, Ian Rapoport tweeted that the suit was bogus per a clerk in the court office. The incredibly arduous task of googling could have solved all of this. Everyone knew it was "bogus" including whoever did the writeup just by reading it. I had no idea who Schacher even was, and I think football fans can be forgiven for not reading TMZ.

  17. We all got our schools of thought and it's cool seeing everyone else's school of thought come together, regardless of whether you agree or disagree. BTW: Important point, but good luck because half the people around here take "I disagree" as "I hate you"
  18. In general you don't. It's draft day and people are hungry for news(content) even if it's BS. Generating content to drive people back to your website is usually a good idea, since Rotoworld is mostly a news aggregator with opinions they aren't going to pass on much.... There was probably some Lions fan that read that and said "SO THERE IS STILL A CHANCE WE GET WATKINS!!! YEY!"
  19. I have no issue with opinions. It's opinions pushed as fact I have issue with. But at the end of the day, I don't really have issue, because I believe they are mostly idiots, and I love that many people in my fantasy league listen to them as Gospel. I don't think they're idiots, I just think they have opinions, and state them strongly. Since it's fantasy football they miss, because nobody can predict what will happen in the future. I love it for the same reason you do, people will read their updates and take it as "PROFESSIONAL ADVICE!" so if I disagree and I'm right I have a huge advantage. I think they're damn funny too when they are tearing a player down. I think this was meant for "The Jesus". I don't think there is any issue with compiling stats, not finding anything and sharing the results to see what others think. As was mentioned later on in this thread, there are so many variables (injuries, timeshare, team situation) that can lead to a second year slump, I'm not sure how valuable overall it is to just look at ypc or yards and try to infer some meaning.
  20. Why wouldn't you want opinions? (this is more a reply to everyone than the last poster)
