Love,love this quote from story,

 

"We’re not sure what songs Aerosmith will break out for the big night, although “Love in an Elevator” might not be the first choice of many league officials.


Any Mountain bikers?

26 February 2015 - 03:44 PM

I'm curious if there are any mountain bikers in huddle land and if so what they think about the "Fat Bike" craze?

 

I test rode one last fall and loved it but couldn't afford what the bike shops were asking so went the BikesDirect  way (i.e. ship direct from China) for an off brand with decent specs.  

 

With the port slowdown I've been waiting too damn long and now it is finally set to arrive on Monday, cannot wait.

 

For those who don't know and are curious fat bikes were developed to ride through snow and sand but I liked my test ride so much I spec'd one for everyday trail riding as well.

 

 

 

 


Why "NOT" to take Press Conferences seriously this week

18 February 2015 - 02:35 PM

There will be more manure spread this week than ever before seen in the NFL.  With teams looking for misdirection, subterfuge or just interviewing idiots you just cannot take anything seriously anymore in the NFL media.

 

I thought it would be interesting to find examples of such, and it wasn't hard to find.  

 

Not sure if anyone can top this but......

Lovie Smith says Mike Glennon can be franchise QB

 

The Bucs head coach spent part of Wednesday touting Mike Glennon as his franchise quarterback, an absurd notion considering that Smith only started Glennon in six games, and played the now-releasedJosh McCown down the stretch.

 

"Yeah, I think you can definitely say that Mike can be the quarterback that can play at a high level in this league," Smith said when asked if Glennon can be a franchise quarterback. "And I mean, we only have one quarterback on our roster. If you look at the comments I've made about him, yes, I think he can be that guy."

Added general manager Jason Licht: "We want him to be part of the future; we like him a lot."

 


Huddle Fantasy Football League (s) ?

16 February 2015 - 05:31 PM

Many years ago I ran a 48 team league on the Huddle with fair to middling success.  I am contemplating offering this option again this summer but curious to see how many others would be interested.

 

In a "Mega League" you basically have four different "conferences" of 12 teams each that draft like separate leagues.  But each conference follows the same rules and same schedules.  The key is that these teams play an abbreviated schedule and only the top 2-4 teams move on to the "Playoffs"

 

The Playoff contenders then enter into a new bracket and are seeded.  There is a very good possibility that some teams in the playoffs would possibly have the same players at one or more positions.  This can be awkward, weird or a real strategy play.  In our case several years ago only three NFL players matched up against each other and in one case the owner benched the star player and the backup outscored him.  The point is, you can view it as a roadblock or a challenge.

 

The benefit of a "Mega League" is that you get one owner out of 48 Huddlers that can truly claim the Huddle Championship and receive a special banner/trophy.

 

The pain of a Mega League is finding 48 owners that commit to playing all season and pay their dues in advance.  I would be willing to run it and guarantee the payouts but only if interest is shown.  I realize there are leagues some Huddlers have played on that would want to keep operating and of course they would be pinned here also.  

 

Please vote and/or add in your two cents.  It is a Public Poll (non-binding, just collecting list of potential owners) and there is option to vote for more than one.
