Can you bench three players to make it fair? emoji23.png
 

At your request, looking for ways to bench my last three guys 😂  but the site requires I fill all spots in the lineup. Debated filling them with 3rd string guys, but then realized, if they somehow get playing time, they might get negative points. So I'm gonna let it ride with the starters and hope for a new high score.

Although not official official I do want to congratulate @ChiefMikeOfficer on this BIG win! A stellar week and amazing season through and through. Happy to get top 4 of 56 teams and a division title, so nothing to be sad about. Thank you to @Berg Ryman @Bucky CC @STUDque @Undershooter for all your work this year, its greatly appreciated and cannot be done without you! Now secretly I am hoping for the Bills to go off for so we see a record week scoring and I can feel better about the finals loss!

Crazy thing is he didn't need a single point from Kamara to take the title.  CMO currently has a 70+ point lead and Kamara only scored 60.  It was a total roster domination.

In my other league my brother is in the final matchup this week, and he also has both Kamara and Diggs. Non-PPR league, and he has a 60+ point lead. A crazy weekend for fantasy matchups everywhere!

 @ChiefMikeOfficerThank you to @Berg Ryman @Bucky CC @STUDque @Undershooter for all your work this year, its greatly appreciated and cannot be done without you! 

Thanks for a great season everyone! I think this was my second year in MGS Fantasy Football - made some dumb roster errors late in the season last year that made me nervous, and I'm just glad the mistakes weren't bad enough to get kicked out 😂. I second the thanks to the commissioners @Bucky CC@Berg Ryman @STUDque @Undershooter- I can't imagine how tough it is to coordinate a league this big. 

Sorry I never joined the Slack (never used it before and just didn't get around to trying it for this) - maybe next year. Sorry (but not sorry) I didn't accept any of the trade offers - even the win-wins could have made my season go very differently because of injuries that happened shortly after. Thanks for all the chatter on the Forum - I really enjoy leagues like this where it's a bunch of strangers with at least one thing in common, both cheering each other on and talking some light trash with (I think?) no hard feelings. Thanks for being an awesome community. 

Especially now, I owe it to everyone to be more active on the Forum. I've had a few good stretches in the past, but they always seem to fade out with family and work commitments (or weather 🥶), making it so I just don't play as much as I used to (working on changing that). I've also struggled a bit with finding relevant, active threads on the main site and many of my posts end up on old/stale threads. Looking at activity from a few of you led me to discover the MGS app (I feel so old saying that...), which has already made it a hell of a lot easier to find the active threads, so I'm gonna work on that in coming weeks and do a better job. 

Great season fellas - time to move on and finish middle of the pack in MGS Fantasy Golf.

CONGRATULATIONS @ChiefMikeOfficer MYGOLFSPY 2020 FANTASY FOOTBALL CHAMPION

That was a super impressive showing. Can't believe you could've won the whole thing without even using Kamara's bomb of a day. To square away your Golden Ticket, send a message to @GolfSpy MPR and @Golfspy_CG2 and they'll give you the details you need. Use it wisely!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - -

In Survivor, we're down to 5. Using three strikes initially felt like a lot but I think it'll play out nicely...especially since things will whittle down quickly in the playoffs. Can't even count on the Jets to lose anymore!

Looking to the future, here's one more plug for those that may not have seen it yet. We're open and taking interest for the Fantasy Golf league. Check out the thread here:

Down to 4 with the Pick'em with GB13 still only at 1 strike. Curious who everyone has left to pick from. I feel luck in that I still have Baltimore, Kansas City, Cleveland, Green Bay and Tampa Bay... Now comes the hard part and hoping everyone else has used up top teams and trying to pick who will win the Super Bowl and work backwards from there.

I’ve got Cleveland left so this will be my last week. Probably should’ve taken more chances during the regular season but still had to get here. Good luck catching @GB13!

I posted a whole blowout in the commish slack on where we stand. Let me copy and paste.

What a crazy end to Survivor we have going on! Here's where we stand.

Studque: 2 strikes, can pick Cleveland, then out regardless of result

Apollo: 2 strikes, can pick Baltimore, KC, Cleveland, Green Bay or Tampa, best remaining chance to make it through Super Bowl

Bucky: 2 strikes, can pick Cleveland, New Orleans, and Green Bay, can get through Super Bowl with Browns help

GB13: 1 strike, can pick Cleveland or Kansas City, cannot make week 21 pick.

I'm holding out for Trackman 😂

But really, I'm going to wait and see what comes between now and ~July and try to balance what I want vs. what makes sense. It's tempting to just say "high-end set of irons", but I love my irons (still could be worth comparing to something new), and I'm not going to snipe a set that doesn't make sense. For example, if I see Honma TR21X, I'll be all over it, but if the Ping G425 irons come up (like the G710 did last year), I'd look into it, but probably pass because I don't think I'm the right tester (but the G425 driver 🤷 especially if LST is an option).

Looking back on last year, the Titleist driver was probably the most desirable for me (been swapping my shaft into new Callaway heads for a few years now, so it would be a good comparison) but there were a couple others that came earlier in the year that would've been too tempting to pass up (like the Titleist and Sub70 irons).

haha Trackman

 

Yea i did the G710 testing but they wouldnt have been for you at a 3hdcp; too much of a SGI iron. You've got quite a good set-up going now too. I'd highly bet we'll see the Ping G425 drivers and irons, the Cobra Rad speed (and maybe full bag), and i'd prolly bet the new callaway Epic drivers. Options options options!

Apollo: 2 strikes, can pick Baltimore, KC, Cleveland, Green Bay or Tampa, best remaining chance to make it through Super Bowl

Bucky: 2 strikes, can pick Cleveland, New Orleans, and Green Bay, can get through Super Bowl with Browns help

GB13: 1 strike, can pick Cleveland or Kansas City, cannot make week 21 pick.

Is that really a hard decision for me? 😜  

Wilson Staff C300 9.0* Fujikura Pro 58 stiff

Callaway Rogue 3W Mitsubishi Diamana D+ LTD 80 stiff

Mizuno MP-18 MMC FLI-HI 2 iron UST Mamiya Recoil 95 stiff

Ping I200's 4-W Aerotech Steelfiber I110 CW stiff

Ping Glide 52* and 58* stiff

Well, there's also the strategic "take strike" option, leaving you a guaranteed pick in week 20 when everyone else could go down this week...

Yea i did the G710 testing but they wouldnt have been for you at a 3hdcp; too much of a SGI iron. You've got quite a good set-up going now too. I'd highly bet we'll see the Ping G425 drivers and irons, the Cobra Rad speed (and maybe full bag), and i'd prolly bet the new callaway Epic drivers. Options options options!

If the Apex Pro irons come up as a test opportunity, then there's a very good chance I'm going to blow it early... Always wanted to give Callaway irons a real shot, but have bounced between Mizuno and Ping since high school (ever since I replaced my trusty/childhood dream Cleveland VAS 😖 with i3 Blades). The only thing that would hold me back is if the testing and reviews absolutely need to happen in February (I could always be the 🥶 mats-only test case).

Fairway: :taylormade-small: Stealth2 Plus, 15* (adjusted to 14.25*) w/ Graphite Design Tour AD-IZ 7X

Wedges:  :vokey-small: SM9 46.10, 54.12, and 58.08, all with custom etchings & KBS Tour Masters-themed shafts, X-flex (CHA Post)

Putter: Total headcase and Putter Ho. Down to two main options in the rotation (one mallet, one blade), but have 4-5 by the basement putting green that might make it in the bag at some point this year... Mallet: :L.A.B.: Mezz XL 36" Orange; Blade: :L.A.B.: Link.1 w/Accra White shaft & :garsen: grip

Don't hold your breath. Callaway and Mizuno are very stingy with iron tests in my experience. If you search the official reviews you will find only 1 single test of cally irons in 2017 and they were G.I. irons.

Yea, I'm not actually expecting it to happen... I know Callaway does their own product tester sourcing through the Callaway Community (including the new Apex line recently), and their terms say that if you're selected, you have to return the clubs within 7 days (which would be a definite "no" for me this time of year). I'm just slightly hopeful because they had something good come through MGS in both '17 and '19.

1) Testing definitely won't happen in February.  We typically don't start them until April timeframe so we can try and include as much of the country as possible.

2) We don't have commitments from Callaway for anything at this point, but that doesn't mean something won't or will happen.  It's still a bit early for those commitments.

A big congrats to @GB13 for winning the survivor pool! With Baltimore loosing and I have opponents playing against each other I sadly can't make the superbowl and it will be my 3rd strike, which leaves GB with only 1 actual strike the whole season! Impressive to say the least.
