I think that the Irish have to be considered as Number 1. I fear that SunCity is likely number 16...

Nevermine, it is fixed. Now we just need the draft picks sorted out.

It would appear that many, if not all, of the roster changes made by the Commissioner have been undone. Wtf, over? I was looking forward to an add or two, but I suggest that we all refrain from doing anything on our own until the Commish can get the mess straightened out. Fleaflicker, like Yahoo, ESPN, NFL.com, etc., comes with its own set of problems or idiosynchrosies or stupidities, choose the word you like the best. I favor the last one.

I am absolutely sure that our reporter asked several questions of us just to yank our chains and get a reaction. "Isn't Peyton the best?" is a terrific example. Good reporters do that!

We could be having a productive, perhaps enlightening, discussion about roster management, the benefits and drawbacks of carrying lots of injured players on one's roster, the benefits and drawbacks of cutting injured superstars and keeping young talent. Instead, we now have two people who are more inclined to get wrapped around the axle regarding the definition of "long-term" or whether the "injury prone" label applies to Percy Harvin, rather than address the merits of the opinion posited. What does it due to a team's chances of winning if the owner insists on carrying injury (or criminally) prone superstars? If you want to pick at the edges, it's a waste. If you want a discussion of the question, I am interested. Did someone miss the playoffs this year because they carried an injured WR instead of adding Marlon Brown, Ace Sanders, Stedman Bailey, or some other WR who got picked up off waivers? How many more games could a team have won if they had picked up Rashad Jennings or Chris Ogbonnaya? The questions are valid. Will the superstar that got carried come back to their old form or will they be Kenny Britt, Fred Davis, or Darren McFaddin?

When I said "over the long haul" I meant multiple seasons - the long haul. I had players in mind like Darren McFaddin, Percy Harvin. Astute owners recognize that some players get hurt more often than others, some players take longer to recover than others. Once a player has a concussion, they are more likely to have another and another and another, each one more debilitating than the last, each recovery requiring more time. The older a player is, the more likely they are to be injured, and their recovery will take longer than a younger player. There are rare exceptions like Adrian Peterson, but they prove the rule. Stating the obvious, that carrying injury prone players costs owners, isn't premature at all. It is, in fact, accurate.

First of all, my compliments on the quality of the questions. I got a huge laugh just reading a lot of them! "Isn't Peyton the best?" Priceless! The Lorikeets are not down at all. Finishing second was a big surprise. Only one of our offensive players has been in the league more than two years (Jennings) so we feel that our future is bright, yes, we are all wearing shades! Yes, their is absolutely a rivalry between Carlos and I - he makes fun of my Espanol - but it is a friendly rivalry with lots of respect on both sides. The Lorikeets try to have this sort of rivalry with every team in the league, but especially with those in Division 4. KC is always tough, Barker had a tough season, but is always a threat. And, John is older than dirt! We are thrilled that the team got younger this season at the same time that it got better! Lacy, Patterson, and Ellington were very productive draft picks. Injuries forced us to let Stacy go right before he blossomed, but that stuff happens and we're happy for him and for Carlos. Grabbing Marlon Brown and Rogers off waivers was a LOT of fun. Next year, hmmm, Our QB play should improve now that the Shanahanigans are over in DC. RB's, WR's, and TE's should improve with experience. We will try to add depth and youth in the draft and we will try to trade to add more strength and to improve our draft position. Our strongest position at the moment is WR, but if Reed and Rivera can stay healthy, we may have two of the more talented and consistent TE's in the league next year. The Lorikeets are happy with the improvement but we won't be satisfied until we have the big piece of hardware to perch on!
