RAB Fantasy Football League Final Update

By

The first annual RAB Fantasy Football League came to a close last week, and I’d have to say it was a smashing success. Managing a squad in a twenty team league took some foresight and plain old luck, but it was a blast. We’ll definitely being doing this again next year.

Resident RABer tommiesmithjohncarlos took the league title despite getting a combined 0.00 points out of his kicker and Titans’ stud Chris Johnson in the championship game. He defeated me, JSBrendog (rocks) and Punk in Drublic (run by longtime reader Aaron) on his way to the title. I settled for a seventh place finish, which I’m happy with since this is my first experience with fantasy football in about five seasons.

In the last update I bragged about my seven-week winning streak heading into a final week battle with JSbrendog to determine second place, but that probably wasn’t such a good idea. I lost by 36+ points and had to settle for the sixth seed in the postseason. TSJC then sent my team packing with a 26.86 point defeat in round one of the playoffs. Brandon Jacobs’ poorly timed knee injury is what did me in, as I was forced to start Leonard freaking Weaver in my lone postseason game.

So for triumph, TSJC’s prize was a fancy new … nothing. All he got is bragging rights, and something tells me he’ll use them to fullest extent possible. Final standing after the jump, see you next year.

    Tommie’s Titans = 2006 St. Louis Cardinals.

      Sunny Daytona = Rainy, overrated, boring, craptastic Daytona.

      THAT IS HOW YOU DEBATE!!!!!

      • Andy In Sunny Daytona

        It’s not rainy here.

          Huh? What happened… I blacked out.

            This is where I make my nut.

              PAAA!!!!

  • Should be working

    You guys are making it too easy for him.

      Fantasy football angers me every fricken year. I have the best record overall, a team loaded with stars, and one bad fucking week knocks me out. Then, every year I say- I am NEVER playing fantasy football again. And then I do. Ah well, I won my money league, so the thousand bucks made up for this disappointing finish!!!

  • Bo

    Some truly great, original team names in there.

    The originality is startling.

    • jsbrendog

      we started off with original names and then decided it would be better to go by what we post as to know who each other is.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Yeah, we started off with original names (mine was “Body by Mangini”) but then someone suggest we use our RAB handles so we knew who we were playing.

      • phil26687

        I refused to conform, but only because I never comment (even though I read religiously) – So Punk in Drublic never changed.

        Thanks to all, and I want my rematch next year!

      I still think my “Alex Cora Wins Games” name was quite clever.

      • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        I liked it.

        Wish I would have had a chance to beat it, but unfortunately, Jamal, only GOOD teams make the playoffs.

      “Some truly great, original team names in there. The originality is startling.”

      That comment was said by… “Bo”.

      • The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

        Yeah, but his real name is “Jeremy,” so he’s got you there.

        • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          OOOOOOOOH, SWEET IRONY!!!!!!!

          • The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

            Sweet Jeebus we need a new post.

              You have to plug the microwave in before you can cook the burrito.

  • jsbrendog

    i can’t wait for next yr when i’ll actually be able to attend the live draft and pick a suitable team for the top 3

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Joseph P.

    If this league continues next year, I’m officially auctioning off my team to the highest bidder.

      I think whoever suffered a loss to you needs to be more embarrassed than you are.

      • jsbrendog

        OWNER OWNED!

        BURN

  • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

    I hate all of you. Only with you bunch of whores can a team that finished sixth in total points, finish outside of the top ten in standings.

    • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Why don’t you go back to your home, on Whore Island?

      • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

        Take me to Pleasure Town.

        • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          I think when all this is over, you and me should get an apartment together.

          • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

            Awesome.

            Oh, wait, that wasn’t in the movie…

            • The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

              Awesome.

              Oh, wait, that wasn’t in the movie Take me to Pleasure Town

    “TSJC then sent my team packing with a 26.86 point defeat in round one of the playoffs. Brandon Jacobs’ poorly timed knee injury is what did me in, in addition to TSJC’s far larger brain and penis that I simply am no match for in any way, shape, or form, leaving me unable to assemble a fantasy football team or pleasure a woman as effectively as he does, and thus I was forced to start Leonard freaking Weaver in my lone postseason game.”

  • UWS

    Any chance of liveblogging the Tex PC for those of us stuck working?

    • Nady Nation

      Beat me to it UWS, damn you

      • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        I’m hoping that Tex is a new avid reader or RAB and he name-drops my Fantasy Football Championship during his presser.

  • Matt

    I’d like to give a hearty F YOU to my first five picks, TO, Housh, Winslow, Fred Taylor, and Felix Jones. Thanks for ruining my season.
