Fantasy Football 2013: week 11

ULUS-10200_1382511238_816

Call me 7-10 because I had another split.  Victory in the big league but a narrow loss in my own.  The bigger bummer of it all was the fact Tacklin’ Dummies and Flippy Flop were the two highest-scoring teams this week in my league: meaning I would have beat anyone else had I been matched differently this week.  Once more, I suppose it proves I am not a commissioner who works for personal gain.
