Holy crap - did you guys see the footage of the Metrodome roof collapsing?  Guess that improves the Vikings position on getting a new stadium.   :o

Clearly they sabotaged the whole thing to that end.

 ;)  If so, I think they must have sabotaged it years ago.  I kept an eye on some of the other dome games on Sunday and seems like they all have more reinforcement/structures going across the top.  The Silverdome for example seems to have metal rails/guards up all over the place.  Anyone know if there are other domes with the same hot-air & teflon design?

By the way, I found this pretty interesting:

"According to the Metrodome Web site, the roof has collapsed before. It happened just 48 days after the roof was first inflated in 1981. Wet, heavy snow was the cause then, too. The stadium was completed in 1982."

Barring any corrections, congratulations to Jim (chuckles) on the win. 

Close call Justin, congrats on a good season and on very nearly calling how much you'd lose by (comment on your team - 16 points (actual 15) when you needed 17 from Vick).  Still can't believe the Vikings won that one.

As a side note, Scott had me by .01 for 7th place earlier today but we seem tied again tonight.

There's too much luck involved.

Truer words.  Top team loses in first round.  6-7 team wins league having three 10 point contributions on the bench.  More than any other fantasy sport, luck matters here.

That score's been jumping around too, earlier I saw that Scott was ahead .19 to .18, then later you were up .21 to .20. Last I checked it was dead even at .20.

Nice win Jim!  That is just exactly the way my season has been going across all my leagues.  I missed out on first round playoffs in another league by .9pts and had the top score the next two weeks (while out of contention).  I actually thought the Eagles would be so far ahead that they would bench Vick before I could get enough points.  Just too many turnovers from Vick sapping away the points.  Man, the way he was throwing to the Vikes last night maybe he should be their new QB?

Congrats Jim on the win

I was going to complain about my first round loss but saved my breath...I have no idea how Crabtree got on my starting line up and I totally missed Gates not playing.

I really think my team got killed by injuries, healthy years for DeAngelo Williams, Clinton Portis and Gates and I think I would have been right there....which is where luck plays in to the whole deal

Which is why I hate Fantasy playoffs and we don't have them in my money league.  The champion of the league should be the one who excels all year long not the last 2-3 weeks of the season.

Congrats to the underdog.  Nice to see an 8 seed (and the guy who knocked me out of the playoffs) win the whole thing.

I had another league where my team was totally loaded, Adrian Peterson, Mike Tolbert, Phillip Rivers, Roddy White, Marques Colston, Steven Jackson, and Jason Whitten... but I lost in the second round because AP didn't end up playing last week despite reports that he would.  I had four guys on my bench who'd have given me enough points.

In another league (with a $150 gift card for Dick's Sporting Goods on the line) I had Jon Kitna go out of the game with a hip injury, and Mike Tolbert got hurt before he could come up with anything either - I lost by 6 points.

Luck of the draw.

Sad to see the FF season end.

Hopefully we'll have football next year.

Thanks everyone. Was definitely a shocking and unexpected victory. Hell, I wasn't even expecting to get out of first round, let alone win 3 straight. I'll be the first to admit that my team was hardly one of the better ones in the league entering the playoffs (the 8 seed was certainly fitting) but, as it's been stated here before, it's all about luck, especially once the playoffs start.
