  1. Welcome to the 200th iteration of the most prolific thread in Football's Future history. Remember, WAYTA is not a catch all for discussion. WAYTA is a hangout spot for general conversations. Use this thread to talk about your day, catch up with friends, have some minor discussions, or muse about life. If you have a hot topic you want to discuss, please start a new topic. It'll probably garner a lot more traffic if it is on its own. Now commence What are you thinking about? for the 200th time.
  2. I just learned that the bassist for Weezer predicted how, when and where he would die two weeks before he did. Weird.
  3. So there was a massive list of passwords and emails has been found online. Some 2.7 billion email/password combos have been found, including 773 million unique emails. You can check to see if your email was a part of the list here. If it was - or heck, even if it wasn’t, it might be time to go changing all your passwords. And while you’re at it, set up a password manager so you have unique passwords everywhere, and multifactor authentication on anything important.
  4. Jaguars hire John DeFilippo as OC

    I think we only dodged that bullet because he had to fire Hackett midseason and we already saw that his favorite option on the staff already was worse than what he had fired. Sadly, even after this front office and coaching staff is purged, I see more of the same coming. This is really a problem that starts at the top. Shad Khan is a great guy, who has wonderful visions for the city and business side of the team. But he just doesn’t get the football side at all. He doesn’t get it, and he tries so hard to behave the way that other bad owners do that he had taken them in the complete opposite direction. He doesn’t want to be the bad things Jerry Jones is, and has seen how how his own influence of just saying something he might be interested in can completely influence a front office into doing stupid crap that he doesn’t even step in when things are clearly being done poorly. He doesn’t want to be one of those owners that just cycle coaches just to do it, and wants to build an understanding that he’ll give time to make things right the way the Steelers or other storied franchises will. But in doing so, he lets guys well overstay their welcome and time for change. As much as he’s trying to do it the *right way* he just doesn’t get it. And I don’t think that’s going to change. We’ll have another Marrone or another Gus Bradley once he decides he’s given enough time to this bad group.
  5. Jaguars hire John DeFilippo as OC

    It’s all nepotism. When Marrone became Head Coach, he made sure his two (according to him) best friends were the two coordinators. They fired arguably the greatest WR coach in NFL history and replaced him with someone who was so bad that he had multiple multi-year hiatuses from coaching and couldn’t even make it coaching at Maryland simply because he was a friend of Coughlin. Then they filled the rest of their staff with friends of Marrone and Coughlin. Then this time it was more of the same. Marrone had a press conference yesterday where he admitted he was only interested in hiring his friends and friends of other high ups on the staff because *they’re the only ones you can trust*. In the same presser, he said the #1 thing that he was looking for in the candidates was that they actually wanted to coach for the team; inadvertently admitting what everyone already knew - no one wants to coach a team with a lame duck front office and head coach, no QB, bad receivers, half an OL to install, no depth and a 3.7YPC RB in the middle of a labor dispute with the team. So that’s how you end up here. Be a coach about to be fired and only look to see which of your friends can’t find a better opportunity than to go down with you.
  6. All Things Wrestling Thread

    Add Ziggler to the list that asked for a release.
  7. All Things Wrestling Thread

    Also apparently Vince is telling some of the top independent wrestlers that he’ll match any offer they bring to him, and in some cases double it, if they sign with WWE on the spot.
  8. Jaguars hire John DeFilippo as OC

    He used to be an assistant RB coach. Before I was alive. Over 30 years ago. I’m totally sure that will work out splendidly. So will hiring one of the worst OL coaches in the league. But Doug said he only wanted to hire people he’s friends with, so nepotism was always more important than talent.
  9. With Season 7 debuting tomorrow, what better time than to get a new thread started?
  10. All Things Wrestling Thread

    Revival asked for their release and so did Mike and Maria.
  11. The gf and I got like 5 free meals from HelloFresh. They were pretty good, but certainly not worth the cost. Just find some good recipes, get the ingredients and cook them. I use Serious Eats (and Kenji’s cookbook/concepts from the site) for at least half of the dinners I make.
  12. Hey everyone, hope everyone made it here just fine. Please check in so I know you're still here. Link to FleaFlicker league page What is a Dynasty League? - A Keeper league with some tweaks. However, rather than only keeping a few players, you keep a large portion of your roster. Rather than relying on a redraft every year, a Dynasty team's success is built upon your ability to draft incoming players, play the waiver wire, make trades (including trading draft picks), as well as find and retain developmental players who will be successful in future years. The Dynasty League is as close to running an actual Franchise as you will find within a Fantasy Football setting. League Rules FleaFlicker's standard scoring - basic+TDs+yardage bonuses 20 player rosters + 1IR + 1TAXI Roster size 10 starters + 10 bench (20 total) 1 Starting QB (Min:1, Max: 4) 2 Starting RBs (Min:2, Max: 7) 2 Starting WRs (Min:2, Max: 7) 2 Starting Flex (RB/WR/TE) - This may be amended 1 Starting TEs (Min:1, Max: 4) 1 Starting Defense/Special Teams (Min:1, Max: 3) 1 Starting K (Min:1, Max: 3) Additional roster slots: 1 IR (player must be on Injured Reserve) 1 TAXI (first or second year player who has not started a game in this league) I cannot set the TAXI spot to actively follow this rule. Please behave within the spirit of the rule. If I see a clear violation, I will probably PM you and have you fix the mistake. However, I reserve the right to cut the player from your roster entirely without warning if I find the usage to be egregious. Keeper rules Entire rosters are automatically kept from season to season. There is no need to set these on FleaFlicker unless you're using them for your own reasons. From time to time, the number of keepers listed in FleaFlicker may be different numbers. The number of keepers listed on FleaFlicker are never to be viewed as the rule of the league. These are occasionally changed to facilitate the performing of commissioner actions or tracking draft order. Draft Rules Every year, a draft is ran in a thread on Football's Future. The draft is 5 rounds and only 5 rounds. Dropping players does not give you more rounds of draft picks despite what you may see on FleaFlicker. Generally, the draft will not have time slots unless absolutely necessary. I know people get antsy when the draft doesn't move for a day or so, but just deal with it. You will need to cut players to be able to sign your draft picks if you are at roster limits Players who are drafted must be placed on team roster by a deadline given each year. This will usually be the start of week 1 or potentially week 2. Please refer to my annual message on the topic. After the draft concludes, any players not on a roster or not drafted may be signed at 12am eastern the following day. Trade rules FleaFlicker facilitates the trading of draft picks, and as such they may be traded. As the draft is only 5 rounds, picks traded after the 5th round are not valid. Draft picks may only be traded up to two seasons in the future. e.g. During the 2017 season, you may trade draft picks from the 2018 or 2019 draft. Once a new draft thread is posted, the next draft becomes available. FleaFlicker allows for trades with more than 2 owners. Feel free to use this ability. As a general rule, if owners agree to a trade, I will not step in to override I unless there has been a clear violation of the spirit of the game or competitive integrity is compromised. Attempting the classic bait trades of like named players will be vetoed or reversed. Don't try to pass off former Washington TE Alex Smith for current Washington QB Alex Smith, or former Bear Adrian Peterson for famed Viking Adrian Peterson. Trading the 2003 version of LaDainian Tomlinson for a 7th round pick in 5 years would be vetoed Misc Every year, each owner will need to show their intent to return for the following season. This will need to be performed in June annually. Each owner will be tagged and given adequate opportunity to make their intent known. If an owner doesn't reply, they may be replaced. I reserve the right to remove owners who have been permabanned from Football's Future, even if they complete all roster actions via FleaFlicker or email. If you piss me off, I may remove you from the league as well. Probably not, but I reserve the right to do so. Owners who do dumb things may be given a mulligan and opportunity to fix the mistake. Not everyone has played a Dynasty League before, and some may not read or know all the rules before they do new things. If an owner forgets to sign a player they clearly intended to sign, I may make the appropriate cuts and signing for them. Don't rely on me to do so. I may just let the player become a free agent so I can sign them. If you'd like a rule changed, amended or feature added, bring it up. Ultimately, I have the last say in any changes, but I do want the process to be largely democratic.

  13. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Thread

    I don’t disagree. But when there’s three different claims on what the White Sox offered; between this 7 year, $150M deal, the reported 8 year deal, and the other 7 year deal that’s in excess of $200M, I’d tend to believe the agent that the info is false.
  14. I figured you were. But any time I can throw a joke at that clown, it’s fun to do so. I hope the Sandy Hook thing completely bankrupts him and ruins his life. Those families deserve everything they can get from him for how much pain he and his followers choose to continue to inflict on them.
  15. You know it’s a good source because the guy who runs the website had to tell a judge that wants to take his kids away that nothing he says is truely what he believes.
  16. Infowars conspiracy theory is the occasion. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/obama-65000-hot-dogs/
  17. Man, to complain that everyone gets triggered too easily and then get triggered over some jokes about McDonalds.

    MLB is using reporters to make public perception turn on the players.

    Lol. He wasn’t offered that contract.
