The Roy Williams chase is the blue doublestar jersey, not the white one.  McFarlane pulled another fast one.  I think they're trying to screw the scalpers again, the way they did with black jersey Gannon.

I'm closing in on the Defending Champs.  Almost there!

My purchases have been pretty limited for NFL 10 so far.  I've only bought Roy Williams, Adam Vinatieri and  chase versions of Ladainian Tomlinson and Trent Green.  I have to admit that I'm a little fed up with the repaints and second versions of players.

Jake Delhomme - Rich Gannon repaint
Trent Green - Jeff Garcia repaint
Terrell Owens 2
Rany Moss 2
Ladainian Tomlinson 3 (if you count the San Diego Super Bowl set)
Ricky Williams 2...and he isn't even in the league this year!

Personally, I think that the new Randy Moss is a little bit better than the frist, Scott, but it's your toy dollars to work with.  I know that if they made a new Shockey I'd be all over it.

Dang, the S6 set is getting harder to find eh?  Not good, not good at all.  Will have to begin hunting.

Actually, I just got it over the weekend at WalMart.  I think it was a little over $40.  Truth be told, the figures aren't all that bad.  We got first appearances of Black Cat, Green Goblin and Electro in the set.  Also, Spidey seems a little bit different.

The Luke Pilot is definitely out.  I've seen it at a couple of comic shops so far.  I haven't been to a Suncoast in a while, but I'm sure it'll be there soon.

My latest Gentle Giant score?  Doing some backtracking and picked up the Jango Fett mini-bust.

Obi-Wan, the Clone Trooper and General Grievous.  At this point in the night, I'm too tired to elaborate.

Now wait.  Did this employee offer it to you because he had it stashed in the store or because he already bought it and wanted to scalp it? 

He saw that it was stashed somewhere and offered it to me.  I thanked him and went to the register and paid the store, not him.  Yeah, I thought it was odd, too.

I honestly cannot believe what happened today at Toys R Us.  An associate at a store I don't freqent very often actually ASKED ME if I wanted what he called "the rare white jersey" version of Ladainian Tomlinson from NFL 10.  All because he saw me holding a Jonathon Ogden figure.

So now it's back to normal.  This is just bizarre.

Okay, now it's changing even more.  What the hell is going on?!  Even though it's moved me into 2nd place, this is ridiculous.

Okay, upon further investigation, now the standings for Weeks 7 - 10 have everyone in the league with 0 points per game, resulting in the discrepancy.  Why is this happening?

What the hell is up with the standings at the league?!  My record has been changed from 6-4 to 3 wins, 1 loss and 6 ties.  WTF?!

I don't know that I agree about the Baltimore thing.  The Colts held onto their name after they left Baltimore.  Also, the city of Cleveland also fought Art Modell for ownership of the name The Browns,  prompting him to change the name of his franchise to the Ravens.  I think those situations are kind of sticky.  As for the Oilers/Texans....I'm on the fence.  I kind of like the Texans name.

Pardon me, but I think it's a dopey name.  Yes, they're playing in the nation's capitol, and they're also in the National League (if it were otherwise, it would be even dopier).  But the name doesn't do it for me. 

I think with Major League Baseball's emphasis on it's own history and tradition, it seems like the Washington Senators would have been a perfect fit.  Sure, the Senators didn't have a great tradition and were never anything special, but if the events of this past October have taught us anything, it's that streaks of bad luck do end.  When the NFL saw fit to expand again and resurrect the Cleveland Browns all was right in the world.  The same should have been said of the Senators.

I know in the league's that I'm in where we have defensive players and not just team defenses, tackles don't get tabulated until Monday at the earliest.  It still doesn't make this suck for you any less, HE.
