EZA Fantasy Football (NFL) 2016: Final Update! That's a Wrap! (Dec. 30)

    Well at least I get to pick 2nd during round 2. These are the breaks the first round is going to be brutal.

  • Following @flower_arrangement's suggestion, I think we should definitely post our draft results here, so anyone who is interested can get invested in our teams. Same goes with any trades, as to avoid claims of "backdoor shady deals."

  • SEATTLE, WA (AP) --- Interbay City Rollers GM Tokyo Slim has been the subject of many speculations over the past 24 hours, as it's been announced that the 'Rollers have been awarded the first overall draft pick in this year's EzA Love and Respect 2016 fantasy draft At a press conference earlier today, he clarified many of these rumors:

    "I feel It's counterproductive to divulge our draft plans before the selection is made, but let me clear up some of the more ludicrous things I've heard over the past 24 hours. We will not be taking a kicker number one overall, nor will Peyton Manning be coming out of retirement to play for my team. This is a whole new division we're in this year, with new rivalries, and new challenges to face. As far as I know, there is not any trading of draft picks, so we will remain in the number one slot this year and not trade down."

    He also went on to address the controversy stemming from his high profile draft picks underachieving in the 2015 season, despite the 'Rollers giving up three mid round picks in last year's draft to trade up and take the two first rounders:

    "...as far as the chatter about the 2015 Breakfast/Brunch Draft debacle is concerned - I stick by my assertion that Nutella Waffles has a higher ceiling, and graded out better than Blueberry Pancakes in our pre-draft interviews. Grapefruit Mimosa, talent wise - is capable of far more than comparable players like Orange Juice. Really, the only other player in Grapefruit's category is someone like Black Coffee, who's already basically a shoe in for the Hall of Fame. If they performed below expectations last year, it's only because this is the big leagues and the learning curve is a steep one. Learning the speed of the game takes time and repetition, and both players have made enormous strides in the game over the offseason, due to our staff and the physical and mental preparation programs that our program has in place.The upside both Waffles and Grapefruit Mimosa have is undeniable and I look forward to a strong 2016 campaign from both players. That is all I've got to say on that this morning"

    While league insiders claim Tokyo Slim's job is secure, some fans have been grumbling about him potentially being on the hot-seat this year, after his 12 year championship drought. Tokyo Slim closed with the following statement:

    "I'm doing everything in my power to stay the GM of the Interbay City Rollers until I retire. This town and this team are hungry for championships, and I feel like I'm the person to give them the best results. I sincerely thank the fans for their patience and hope to be sharing in the spoils of victory with you all shortly. To all the fans, players, coaches, and loved ones - Go Rollers!"

    @Alex840 Hey I suggest we wait till Sunday, September 4th to see if we get enough people interested to make the 2nd league. It'd be a better time to draft teams as well since players get hurt, cut, traded, and in some instances, arrested. Tony Romo, for example, just got hurt again the other day.

    I'm hopeful we can get another league up and running so I can compete with my fellow Allies, but if that doesn't happen, I suppose I'll just have to get over it by going undefeated in my Facebook league.

    I'm super excited to officially be a part of this amazing community!

    Though I love all he does for us, Bosman gets bounced in the second playoff game. Book it. :p

    So if there ends up being an overflow league the draft will obviously be on a later date. Right now it looks like we still need some more people for that. We will lock down a date for that draft once we hit the league minimum.

    The love and respect league will be drafting tonight as planned. Unless there are a lot of people in the league who would rather push it back

  • @TheOhrenberger Gaahhh, just saw this was a thing. If there's an opening in any league please send me an invite. I am available to draft anytime.

  • Draft room is open!

  • Good luck...to me...screw you guys, I hope all your studs tear their ACLs


  • Anyone wake up with buyers remorse today? I'm my other league our rookie member dropped her last 4 picks and waivered replacements already. Lol

  • The only thing I regret is that no one has cloned Teddy Bridgewater yet, because I want my entire team to be an army of Teddy.

    I do but you can't always get what you want

  • @Swordfish00830 Like my planned Russel Wilson / Baldwin Wombo Combo

  • @TheHashtag0nist I'm sorry to take Wilson away from you, but honestly, I'm pretty sure he was born to be a Werehog. I honestly can't tell the difference right now!

  • Wait, are Werehogs an actual thing?

  • @TheHashtag0nist It's what Sonic becomes in Sonic Unleashed.

  • @SabotageTheTruth the resemblance is uncanny

  • So much for the army of Teddy...

    There goes my back-up.
