That's a really good question Sprry, I haven't a clue.  Most characters have been drawn by so many different artists that I just look at it as an average approximation.

That **** makes me sick...I hated the fact that America was "supposed" to root for the Yankees after 9/11 and the Saints after Katrina.  **** you press...I don't have to root for anyone and at the end of the day its just sports.  God Bless You Big Papi. #stillpissedminnesotagotnocredforthebridgecollapse

Agreed. It is really stupid. And just about every aspect of the media and "the news" is lame, corrupt and full of **** along with it.

Like a bunch of roided-up millionaire athletes winning a game makes up for 4 innocent dead people and 50 others who had their legs blown off.

There's something about joints in flesh of female figures that just does not work.  Leia does look bad.

Han, Greedo and Fett are all win.

I'd take that bet.  Bench Rose, Davis, and Leonard and let's see if you finish anything other than dead last.

I still think I'd finish in the middle of the pack at least, but the fact that you can't see how is why I am going to win the league.  You didn't track the preseason I reckon.  I think I could have 6 of next season's top 25 picks.

I can pretty much guarantee he's out.  We drafted last night.

You didn't hear about the expansion draft?  He gets to pick 3 players from your team, and everyone else gets to give him one player of their choice.

My team is sexy enough to withstand the hit.

My buddy Eric is out but I haven't heard from my other buddy Lonnie yet. He's probably out too, but we should be set for a decent league regardless.

I can pretty much guarantee he's out.  We drafted last night.

My team is so sexy.

Scott's team sucks donkey balls as usual.

That's really all you missed.

Try this

http://basketball.fantasysports.yahoo.com/nba/signup

Edit... that doesn't seem to work... that was the page but when I hit 'join a league' it takes me to something that looks more like an option to create one.

I think we'll need Brent for this.

Yup. Well, depending on when he shows up we may be able to get teams signed up. It's already tight and getting less likely.  There's always the option to push the draft off.

Tell your friends to try to sign up by joining an existing league and using:

League ID:  35807
password:  berry

I don't know if that'll still work.... but it used to work.

Can you link me to the screen where it lets you do that? I do not see it anymore since the update. It may not exist.

You're welcome. The Canadian appears blissfully unaware of the latest recruits needing invites. I couldn't find another way to sign up with the league number and password since the website update.

Okay I got a dental school friend to join us. I've played with him in another league for a few seasons.  Send an invite to Pete here:

Posted.

We'd have 5 of course if the good Dr. had just signed up.

Quit your moanin' and complainin'.

Who didn't come back from last year?  I didn't play anything but baseball with you people for a couple years.

Abomination is pretty tiny.

I checked this out thoroughly and he's actually the right height and muscle mass IMO.  I think people are hung up on the torso joint/tooling and the immediate abs proportions around it. I snapped this pic on my way out the door this AM:



Marvel wikia lists Thor at 6' 6", Reed at 6' 1", Thing at 6' 0", and Abomination at 6' 8".  As you can see that would make Abomination the right size.  Possibly even a little too tall believe it or not.  Thing might be a little tall too.  Anyone who reads a lot of Marvel titles knows that the size of characters differs based on which artist is drawing them at any given time.  And you might even disagree with the official marvel wikia listings. Here's how Blonsky looked in his 2nd appearance:



If you put Abomination on the counter and stand back 5 feet and look at the figure, it eliminates the detail of the torso joint and you can see the proportions actually look pretty good.

I love the figure.
