Are We Not Men?

Teddy Roosevelt is disappointed in you

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat."  -Theodore Roosevelt

It has come to my attention that some of the members of this league are refusing all trades, sight unseen.

I cannot understand this.

If you're too afraid of looking foolish (or of being taken advantage of, or of being outsmarted) to make a trade, then you shouldn't be in this league.

There are four teams sitting at 2-0, and four teams sitting at 0-2. The winless teams are desperate and the undefeated teams have good players sitting on their benches. Mutually beneficial trades should occur.

I am not asking you to make a bad trades. I am asking you to consider the good ones.


  1. We're all fucking shysters. I try and dump a suspended player on MB. You try and sell me an injured Wide Receiver. We're all too smart for our own good.

  2. Lebowski: Strong men also cry... strong men... also cry.

  3. Hakeem Nicks isn't even listed on the injury report. He's healthy.
